Bilgi McDermott - Dip Hyp, CBT, ICPT, BA, MA
My name is Bilgi and I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist/Integrative Psychotherapist. I have been running my own private practice in West London for the last thirteen years. Hypnotherapy can be applied to virtually any area of human activity. It is particularly valuable for achieving specific goals, stress management, health enhancement, personal development and interpersonal relationships, boosting your mind and confidence to overcome fears.
My Commitment to You
I am passionate about supporting my clients on their healing journeys, whether they come for physical symptoms, psychological exploration or pure curiosity. I strongly feel that every person is important and that everyone has a unique gift to contribute to this world. I believe that often when we face challenges in life, these can serve as an invitation to reconnect with our true selves, and transform our life's direction.
I am committed to providing heart-felt professional support, employing numerous techniques, so my clients may live more fully, feeling empowered and embracing their unique qualities.

Training, qualifications & experience
I worked as the Clinical Manager for a Charity and an Employee Assistance Programme, managing a team of counsellors and ensuring professional excellence and delivery of a national critical incident service. I have been working with individuals and couples for the last thirteen years.
Self-knowledge and spiritual growth have always been important to me. After developing myself through academic pursuits, including a MA in integrative Psychotherapy, that has significantly shaped my approach to therapy and healing.
Later on, I turned my attention inwards. I felt a longing to contribute more directly to people's wellbeing. I thus embarked on intensive journey at the Hypnotherapy Training International UK. HTI of the United Kingdom is an accredited course provider for the British Society of Hypnotherapists (Est 1950), the longest-established professional organisation for Hypnotherapy in the UK and the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners (Est 1980) two organisations with training standards and other requirements among the highest in the field including a requirement that courses possess at least 200 hours of core hypnosis training in the classroom in addition to home study.
I completed my diploma in hypnotherapy to work as a clinical hypnotherapist. Currently, I am practicing and learning Dahn Yoga in order to complement theoretical knowledge with personal experience. I also have a certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and currently employ a mixture of techniques to support my clients.
