I’ve worked with people in distress for the past 12 years since the beginnings of my career in community mental health.

As a qualified counsellor, community worker, mental health worker, psychotherapist, clinical hypnotherapist, mentor and meditation practitioner and facilitator, I offer you all I have to give and all that is to come.

You’ve arrived here for the exact reason I developed Happy Inside.

Many, many moons ago when I was critically ill with gut symptoms, I was beside myself with anxiety and couldn’t find a practitioner who offered what we now call gut focused therapy or gut directed hypnotherapy.

So I created it.

I’m a solutions-oriented kinda girl, never one to let a minuscule detail like that hold me back. 

8 years now I have believed in the efficacy of gut focused therapy.

I’ve pushed on even when the research wasn’t there, and now it’s all come to fruition. I thank the medical world for that, the researchers who completed the studies and the progressive medical professionals who acknowledge and validate the benefits of gut focused therapy. Their belief offers this avenue for you.

You will see the site is called Happy Inside just like the program, app and podcast. I hope you like the progressive change from Mind Matters Hypnotherapy as much as I do. Plus, who doesn’t want the hope of a happy inside?

My purpose is to guide you within

…to shine the light on your internal landscape, particularly to where your body keeps the score; your gut.

…to use gut focused therapy to navigate the landscape of your life, to understand who you are and what is out of balance.

…to practice listening to and trusting your body. Emotions are the body’s representation of a thought, while physical symptoms are the body’s representation of an investigated emotion.

I will give you my presence: the kind of presence where you feel seen, heard and safe.

I will provide a space for you to slow down and turn inwards to the incredible insight within you. I will hold that space for you so that you may hold it for yourself.

I will show you the depth of your own capacity. I will help you to trust in yourself and will work with you to cultivate the skills and tools to do so.

I am wholly committed to your wellbeing and for you to have and feel the very best.
