Hello, my name is Annette Sloly and I am an experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist. BA Hons. DHP HPD CNHC AfSFH MNCH(Reg). I coach adults who need help to manage stress, anxiety and fear.
I believe that people are capable of making dramatic changes in their lives with the right strategy and support. I enjoy helping clients realise their power, by working with them to 're-train' their brains and create positive change in their lives and achieve their goals using Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. This is a modern, evidence and research based combination of hypnosis and psychotherapy, which promotes relaxation and helps clients to make beneficial lifestyle changes, increase awareness and cultivate presence. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses a combination of disciplines that can include Mindfulness, CBT, SFBT, NLP and Positive Psychology.

My name is Annette Sloly and I am a Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist based in Bristol, UK. BA Hons. DHP HPD CNHC AfSFH MNCH(Reg). I coach people who need help to manage stress, anxiety, fear, and reach peak performance using hypnotherapy.
I enjoy helping clients transform, remember their power, and work with them to have a better understanding of their thoughts and feelings, so that they can create positive change, achieve their goals and feel better. Drawing on Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, this modern, evidence and research based combination of hypnosis and psychotherapy, enables the client to build self-awareness, make beneficial lifestyle changes and cultivate presence and relaxation in mind and body.
I have ten years of experience in coaching, mentoring and Clinical Hypnotherapy; with a lifelong interest in mindfulness, neuroscience and extensive corporate experience. Cultivating curiosity and compassion over the years has helped me hone my approach and informs my work – with everyone from professionals suffering stress, to world-class actors and musicians looking to improve their performance.
I am a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Practitioners Council which is the body that GPs and health professionals refer to; Member of the National Council of Hypnotherapists, and the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy I hold an Enhanced DBS certificate, certifying my eligibility to work with children and vulnerable adults. I am committed to an on-going programme of continued professional development, understanding and applying the latest research in anxiety, mindfulness, solution focused hypnotherapy and neuroscience. I am currently working towards the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (AHD) which is a research based diploma, the highest award in hypnotherapy.
My journey is one of transformation: it’s the motivation behind my vocation and the positive change I seek to inspire in others. Following family trauma in my early teens, I suffered episodes of anxiety that affected my confidence and performance. Through therapy and personal practice, I learnt how to manage destructive thought patterns, feelings and emotions, and the empowering sense of control and resilience this gave me – it was life changing. I went on to explore the mind and body in more detail, both through academic study and personal practice, later qualifying as a Clinical Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist.
It gives me great purpose to help people manage fear, stress and anxiety – and ultimately lead happier lives. I have 10 years of experience in coaching, mentoring and Clinical Hypnotherapy; coupled with a lifelong personal interest in mindfulness meditation, a rich performing arts history, and corporate experience heading up teams in production and project management. This multi-faceted experience has helped me hone my approach: a synthesis of therapeutic disciplines that informs and supports my work – with everyone from undergraduates suffering from exam anxiety and professionals struggling to manage stress, to world-class artists and actors looking to improve their performance.
Outside of the office, I deepen my understanding of mindfulness and compassionate awareness through daily practice, as well as attending retreats and workshops. I am particularly interested in the transformative power of the breath. I have performed on Radio and Television so understand the challenges of performance. I am a classically trained Violinist, and hold a BA Hons. (University of Kent) and diplomas in the arts. My interests include watching American comedy, travel, history, political science, religion, spirituality, hiking, and teaching my son the power of curiosity. Having lived most of my life in London, I moved to Bristol eight years ago, so I split my time between both cities. I support Help for Heroes and Deki – The UK’s first person to person microfinance charity, empowering entrepreneurs in developing countries.
‘Confidence has long been a barrier in my life and when I was asked to do a presentation I decided to be proactive and try hypnotherapy to help me overcome this obstacle. Annette has helped me increase my confidence levels through hypnotherapy and breathing techniques. Annette has shown me that small changes can have a big impact.’
