About me

FIONA WORTHINGTON - Cognitive Behavioural Coach and Clinical Hypnotherapist

‘Insightful, direct and challenging, yet warm and empathetic. A good accurate listener.’

I enjoy meeting people and believe the most important requirement for my job is to listen with kindness.

I believe it all starts with the thinking, ‘we feel the way we think’.

If we can change the way we think about an event, then we can change how we feel about it.

  • If you are stuck,can't get that idea off the ground.
  • If something is holding you back, making you feel anxious.
  • If you are feeling lonely, struggling to make new friends.
  • If you feel so low you just can't face seeing people.
  • Stressed at work or home, its all got too much.
  • Sleeping badly, a member of the 4am club night after night.
  • Not feeling great about yourself, lacking in confidence and self-belief.
  • Or a habit you would like to tame: smoking, nail biting and more.
  • Or you just want to take stock of where you are.
  • Or chat something through without being judged or interrupted.

Then call for a chat 07990 514804 or drop me an email as above.

Training, qualifications & experience

I enjoy meeting people and believe the most important requirement for my job is to listen with kindness.

I trained with the Institute of Clinical Hypnosis, one of the UK’s foremost training colleges for clinical hypnotherapists.

  • DHP (Advanced Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy - ICH)
  • DCH (Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy – ICH)
  • Diploma in CBT Coaching (City CBT Coaching College, London)
  • Certified Practitioner in the art of Neuro-linguistic Programming

I am fully registered and credited with the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). (Their job is to protect the public and ensure their members are fit to practice.)

My background is in Investment Banking where I spent almost 20 years. As a retail specialist salesman working for a variety of large investment houses, I understand only too well the stresses and strains that face people who are exposed to the demanding environments that these massive corporate cultures throw up.

Whilst being married and bringing up a family means I am not immune to life’s ups and downs. I am just like everyone else with my own stuff to work out and therefore I believe I can relate easily to people. I am particularly interested in working through anxiety, stress and self-esteem issues.

Further information

How and why did you become a Cognitive Behavioural Coach and Clinical Hypnotherapist?

I was a stockbroker in the City for 17 years but I had always wanted to do something in psychology. I believe that everything I have done has led me to this moment.

What do you enjoy most about what you do?

I love meeting people. I am humbled by what I hear and what resolve people have. Everyone without exception has a great story.

What do your clients value most about your services?

Discretion, honesty and kindness. My time – I am not ‘time precious’. I am a good, kind listener and give people the space that allows them to think and work their stuff out.

What methods do you employ when seeing a client ?

I use many techniques based around CBT and Hypnotherapy. CBT in a few words is ‘we feel the way we think’. CBT enables people to manage their emotional difficulties by understanding and changing the way they think. The feeling of Hypnosis is a bit like daydreaming, something that we all go in and out of daily. When the client is in hypnosis they are highly suggestible and positive change can take place rapidly. It’s great for relaxation and confidence building. Hypnotherapy and CBT are about gifting the client the tools to take care of him or herself. So they can be safe, solve and soothe from within, but always to show them with compassion and kindness.

What can you offer clients that competitors can’t?

Hypnosis and CBT are about gifting the client tools to take care of themselves. Because I worked in the City in investment banking for almost 20 years I understand stress. Being married and bringing up a family means I am not immune to life’s ups and downs. I am just like everyone else with my own stuff to work out and therefore I relate easily to people.

How beneficial is therapy to counter daily stress and pressure?

There is a real need for therapists and coaches like me to help people with the stresses and strains of everyday life and who offer the opportunity for an ‘Emotional MOT’. We think nothing of going to the dentist, having our cars serviced, having our hair done, maybe having a personal trainer; yet the majority of us still think that a trip to see someone like me for support when we feel overwhelmed or down is a real weakness and view it with suspicion. Our brain is the largest and most important organ in our body and does not get serviced, why not?
