My Story

Before choosing a therapist I would want to know a little bit about the person who I’m going to share my personal details with. I would want to feel some connection to them, and I’d certainly want to feel safe. I would be asking what experience do they have, do they understand the pain that I’m in, and how passionate are they about their work?

So, if you are interested, let me fill in the gaps, so you know who I am, and how I got here.

As a teenager, I had no clue about what I wanted to do with my life, and I certainly didn't know what my gifts or talents were. I lacked confidence and had very limiting beliefs about my capabilities.

My career path weaved in all manner of directions, as I persistently tried to work out what I was good at, and loved doing. I worked in an office, I became an air stewardess, I worked in a clothes shop, I did some fashion modelling, tried interior design at one point, and became a personal trainer for 14 years. I also survived parenting 3 children, during 27 of those years, all of whom are now adults and following their own career paths.

Finally, I have found my life purpose, after more than 35 years, of looking. For me there is no greater joy than helping people change their lives for the better.

During my search for fulfilment, I learnt a great deal about myself and evolved into a much more confident and resilient person. I broke free from anxiety and depression, I faced my greatest fears and overcame them, I learned to forgive and let go of a 20-year marriage, and I turned my negative, worrying mindset upside down, and embraced new, positive ways of thinking and being.

Its both my suffering and my surviving that makes me so passionate about helping people who are struggling today. When my clients overcome their own fears, let go of beliefs holding them back, and embrace a better future, I am literally filled with joy. I’ve even been known to dance around the kitchen in a moment of deep gratitude for the work that I do.

What my clients have to say

"I struggled with claustrophobia for about 5 years.  Sometimes it was so severe I had to remove myself from situations. I couldn’t get into lifts alone, I hated getting on planes, and in work meetings I had to sit close to the door to feel okay.

After one session with Bertie I immediately felt a drastic difference.  Over the next few weeks, I realised that, I just didn’t think about it anymore.  I can now get into lifts and sit anywhere, in small rooms, without feeling an overwhelming sense of fear.  Listening to the recording every day helped push this fear even further away, to the point where I now find a sense of joy in being in situations that I once dreaded."

Emma, London

Trauma & Anxiety

"Bertie was amazingly helpful in my journey for answers and support. Having suffered a traumatic childhood (silently) I began in my adult life to suffer severely from a lack of self worth accompanied by strong bouts of anxiety and even panic attacks. Bertie’s time and expertise helped me to understand why I was suffering therefore allowing me to confront the cause and ‘cleanse’ myself of it. Since my session with Bertie I haven’t suffered from any anxiety and have managed to find some peace emotionally to help me move forward with my life. I have also felt much more comfortable in my skin and appreciate my worth - an added bonus too is that I no longer seem to be scared of flying!!! You will be in safe hands with Bertie and can feel confident that you are working with the best."

Olivia, Skype

Confidence / Self Esteem

"Hi Bertie, I just wanted to write to you to Thank you for your help.   

When I had my 'skypnosis' session with you I had been feeling very low and had a very low self esteem, I couldn't shake off a lot of negative feelings from my childhood that have haunted me for on and off for years. The session really released me.  After only 3 days of listening to the recording I had a huge shift in my well being. Three weeks later, I'm singing again, something I always did as a child and feeling really positive and happy. It's like a huge burden has been lifted from my shoulders!   I cannot ‘Thank You’ enough Bertie, and I would highly recommend anyone to have a session with you."

Emma, Pergamos


"I came to Bertie having struggled with confidence and self belief since childhood.  My anxiety had really started to inhibit me and stop me from achieving my goals in life. With Bertie’s help, I was able to review all the moments in my life, which were now creating issues for me and causing my negative thoughts  and fears to run my life.  The session was extremely insightful and allowed me to look at myself in a manner and aspect that I had simply not envisaged before. One by one we ripped up my negative memories and put them in the metaphorical shredder.

After the session I felt instantly happier and released from my pain and then after 21 days of listening to my recording I felt like a completely different person.  It’s like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I’m showing a real sense of confidence and self belief in my own abilities both at work and in my personal life. The changes in me have been noticed by both my friends and my colleagues, and I really can’t thank Bertie enough.  It really is fantastic to experience such great shifts in such a short space of time, and to feel so positive about the future.  I am so grateful for the fantastic support and I am very happy to recommend Bertie."

Joe, London


"I had one session with Bertie for lack of confidence and my inability to achieve anything in life as a result of my owns fears and holding myself back.  I now have the confidence to follow a new career path, knowing that I am good enough.  The transformation was so quick that I would never hesitate in recommending Bertie.  She is a kind and intuitive therapist."

Kate, London

Smoking Weed

"From the first time I spoke to Bertie on the phone, I knew she would be able to help me. I’d smoked weed for years and was unable to quit on my own. It was affecting my life in a negative way and I wasn't living the way I wanted to. In one session I stopped smoking weed and haven't smoked since, and haven't felt the need to. I am so much happier, and have more energy to do the things I want to do. Thank you so much."

Marie, Cheltenham

Addiction to Computer Games

"For the last four years I have been addicted to computer games.  I wasted hour upon hour playing these pointless games.  If I was watching television, I would play while the ads were on.  If I woke in the night, I would play.  As soon as I woke in the morning, I would play.  Every day I would spend at least four hours playing computer games.  My game playing was actually ruling my life.

Then a month ago, a friend recommended I made an appointment with Bertie. I went to see her with a lot of doubt because I didn't believe that hypnotherapy would work on me. BUT I have not played a game since and I have no desire to play. Bertie has changed my life (for the better). I cannot recommend her highly enough."  

Nichola Hill, London

Fear of Flying & Heights

"Hi Bertie, I just wanted to say a huge thank you again for all your help.  I was flying down red runs all week and just enjoying the exhilaration of what I was doing, not thinking of the speed and height aspects.  The flights were both good and I feel that I have a new lease of life.  Great work from you and really positive fro future holidays, very grateful."

Mathew, Cheltenham

Anxiety / Panic Attacks

"For the last 10 years I have experienced constant panic attacks and worry about being away from a toilet, impacting me in my every day life and taking enjoyment out of travelling and being outdoors. And even though I knew the cause I was never able to curb away those negative feelings. Bertie had one session with me and literally cured me. I still listen to her recording on a regular basis and it puts a smile on my face. One session gave me phenomenal confidence in myself and has been truly life changing. Thank you!”

Sharan, London

Loss of Taste & Smell

"I had lost my smell and taste senses for 12 years when I went to see Bertie.  I had seen so many people from alternative therapies and conventional therapies before seeing her and nothing had helped.  After her therapy session and the recording she gave me, which I did every day for a month, my sense of taste and smell is beginning to regenerate .  In fact the evening after my session with her I went out to supper and I could taste the coriander on my salad which I hadn’t tasted for 12 years!   I can’t recommend Bertie enough  - she has succeeded when all else had failed and I had given up hope of every enjoying my food or smelling the amazing aroma of flowers and essential oils and such like.  Thank you so much Bertie."

Lulu, London

Nail Biting

"I had one session with Bertie and gave up my lifetime habit of biting my nails. The session was so powerful it created an instant change and I never bit my nails again. I am very grateful to Bertie."

Wayne, London


"Just wanted to let you know I had a fantastic weekend on my course with no blushing!!! I am still listening to the recording as advised but really many thanks, I can’t quite believe it myself and if it ever becomes a problem for my son I am definitely sending him your way!"

Tamara,West London

Bad Habit / Lip Biting

"For years I had the most ridiculous bad habit - I chewed the inside of my lips and mouth!  It made no sense to me why I did it, it hurt and it was unsightly but, try as I might, there was nothing I could do to stop it - until my one single hypnotherapy session with Bertie!  In just one session Bertie got to the bottom of the deep-rooted issues that triggered this habit in the first place and helped my understand why I don't need to do it any more.  Three months later I truly feel the habit is broken.  During the session we explored some very sensitive issues which upset me but Bertie was very gentle, encouraging and reassuring and I felt quite safe and that I could trust her.  By the end of the session I literally felt free of this habit and I had a full understanding of why I had been doing it and why I could now stop. I can't recommend Bertie highly enough - she's brilliant!"

Antonia, London

Confidence / Anxiety

"Before I came to see Bertie, along with my confidence being down, I was terribly anxious about everything, I felt like I couldn’t breathe due to seeing the negative side to absolutely everything. I was forgetting things at work due to panicking before I had even started. Since seeing Bertie and listening to her recording I finally feel like I can breathe again. It has helped me gain focus and trained my negative thinking into positive and reassuring thoughts, which has then helped me regain my confidence.

A lifetime of these feelings have been demolished with one session with Bertie. I haven’t stopped raving about her to all my friends."

Selina, London

Excellent Memory and Exam Success

"I have struggled for a substantial amount of time to remember everything that studied and revised and lacked confidence when the exams were approaching. I went to see Bertie who helped me change my beliefs about my capabilities and the fact that I could achieve success during exams.  Listening everyday to the recording was the key to the change process; by increasing my personal confidence, having a stronger willingness to do things right and put all the necessary efforts in by procrastinating less."

Xavier, Brussels


"My fear of small spaces was really restricting my life.  In one session, Bertie cured me of my fear of going into lifts after 15 years of avoiding them.  The unexpected bonus was that I am no longer afraid to go in the attic.  Now that I am free of this fear I can travel in lifts with my children, instead of running up the stairs to meet them.  What a relief! I am very happy to recommend Bertie"
