Heather Bartlett. Dip Hyp Registered Nurse
Although I have worked in counselling and psychotherapy services for many years, I have been amazed how effective and side effect free, hypnotherapy is in treating so many problems, both physical and psychological, and I know you will be too!
An initial FREE 30minute consultation with me will allow us to discuss the best route to treat your difficulty and for you to experience a light trace and learn how you can use this technique yourself for relaxation.
As a qualified Nurse and working in Health Services for 30 years I have found Clinical Hypnotherapy a great addition to conventional approaches for the treatment of a wide range of distressing symptoms and difficulties, and found it has allowed patients to explore deep seated blockages, resistance and memories in a gentle and efficient way and progress in their recovery.
I specialise in depression, anxiety, trauma of all kinds and self harm. I have experience in working with the LGBT community. I have experience in treating adults, teenagers and children (over 6) as well as older adults (Especially for chronic pain).
Martha * came to see me with OCD symptoms which disrupted her everyday life. Together we reduced her anxiety and controlled the urges to repeat actions
Martin* came to the first session feeling low following a break up of his relationship. We used hypnotherapy to help him move through painful memories, restore his self esteem and lift his mood. I also used EMDR techniques whilst he was in a trance to tackle the deep seated painful issues which he had found it impossible to think about consciously
Ben* a 6year old had difficulty expanding the variety of foods he ate. He was motivated by wanting to attend a pizza party so came to see me to practice 'eating' whilst under hypnosis and managing his anxieties.
June* has improved mobility, control and sensation in her limbs following a stroke. The hypnosis has allowed her to reconnect with the limb and improve neural pathways.
Martin* approached me for help to overcome erectile disfunction. It was a problem that had restricted his relationships for several years but with a combination of hypnotherapy and EMDR he was able to become confident once more.
Lily* 14 yrs has been experiencing difficulties at school and was using self harm to cope with the stress.
hypnotherapy helped her not only improve her confidence but also to change coping strategies to more healthy ways
My experience has allowed me to work with a vast array of problems and difficulties. I am patient, understanding and non-judgemental. I work in a calm, gentle manner which has your best interests at heart. Treatments are negotiated and I will devise a bespoke plan for everyone who comes to see me as no two problems are the same.
I have been practicing Clinical Hypnotherapy for many years and have recently moved to a quiet office in Studley with easy access and good parking just off the main road.
