About Me

My name is Emily and I am a fully qualified clinical hypnotherapist, life coach and NLP practitioner. I have lived with a chronic condition since my teenage years, and have always strived to find ways to improve my symptoms and functioning. Through years of work, trial and error and a strong focus on finding solutions, adjustments I have managed to create a life beyond my condition and find positives in my experience. Keeping the ultimate goal of having the best life I can, irrespective of my condition, in mind through out. I am passionate about empowering other people, like you, who are living with long-term health problems or physical limitations to do the same. 

Alongside my holistic work I am a qualified medical doctor (GMC 7482252) working part time at a busy local NHS hospital. Whilst I cannot offer medical advice or treatment my medical training does allow me to understand your condition and any treatment you maybe considering or undertaking. If I feel that you need to seek medical attention and review before or during your work with me I will let you know and if required guide you in how to access the appropriate care. 

The Empowerment Plan and the Clinical Hypnotherapy that I offer have been developed based on years of personal experience, combined with professional training. I have used the techniques and strategies upon which The Empowerment Plan is founded to build and sustain a good life for myself after over a decade of struggling to function with a health problem. I believe that it is possible to dramatically reduce the impact of symptoms on your life, and, most importantly, that you can develop a life that is happier and more fulfilling. I am not able to offer you a cure and don't claim to resolve any conditions, but what we can do together is find a way to minimise the impact of that condition and help you find ways to live life alongide it rather than being engulfed in it! The Empowerment Plan is designed to enable you to do this and uses a stepwise approach so that we build the right foundations on which to build the best life possible. 

Doctors and other health care professionals (HCP) - I have a growing practice working with medics and other professionals, including those with disabilities/chronic health conditions. Working in the NHS is a challenging environment and the demands of training, rotas and rewarding but equally emotionally intense work can take it's toll. I enjoy helping HCP find a balance between work and self care. If you have the additional challenge of working whilst living with your own health condition I can help you put in place the right support and learn to appreciate the value of your lived experience for the NHS and patients. I am the West Midlands BMA Disabilities and Wellbeing Representative and have organised three successful conferences for Doctors with Disabilities and health conditions. I have taken part in both a BMA and BBC podcast on the topic of doctors with disabilities. My aim is to help all HCP prioritise their health and wellbeing and in doing so discover that they can succeed in their career, give their patients quality compassionate care and feel well themselves.
