About me

At The Hitchin Hypnotherapy Practice I have a high success rate and have successfully enabled hundreds of clients (adults and children) to take back control and establish greater balance in their minds and bodies, resulting in greater contentment and success.

I offer a free individual consultation on the telephone to discuss your issues and goals so that you can decide if I am right for you and I use a range of effective approaches and techniques including EMDR, EFT, Parts Integration Therapy and other NLP techniques, Counselling, Life Coaching and Clinical Hypnotherapy to help you achieve your wellness goals and resolve your emotional and psychological problems. 

Although I specialise in weight loss, healthy eating and lifestyle, overcoming eating disorders including Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa, anxiety including panic attacks, depression and OCD, I also work with a wide range of other psychological and emotional issues.  Check out the list of areas below to establish if I can help you....

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural state of heightened awareness, frequently associated with relaxation, where you are able to open yourself to suggestions and can make use of your imagination to help you effect positive changes in your life.  These suggestions are made to your subconscious or unconscious mind, which is infinitely more powerful than your conscious mind.  Your unconscious mind accounts for about 90% of your mind's potential and will always 'win' over your conscious mind.

The role of the Clinical Hypnotherapist is to help you make changes to your mind set through the use of hypnosis.  This frequently involves helping clients overcome emotional or psychological illness or addictions and as a Clinical Hypnotherapist I am often able to help my clients resolve their issues, rather than just alleviating their symptoms.  Because I work with both your conscious and subconscious minds, I am able to help you make the positive and sustainable changes that release you from what has historically held you back.
