Louisa Chipperfield Professional Hypnotherapist (Cert. Hyp CS)
5 Maxwell Close
Hi, my name is Louisa and I offer hypnotherapy in Woodley, Berkshire. I'm a fully qualified Hypnotherapist with a diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling skills. I am a member of the National Hypnotherapy Society and abide by their Code of Ethics within my work. I have a wonderfully relaxing practice room attached to my home where I can see clients in a calm and comfortable environment. I am an experienced therapist and can offer support with a number of issues including:
- sleep issues
- stress and anxiety
- habit breaking
- tackling fears and phobias
- addressing emotional eating
- smoking cessation
- birth preparation
- confidence building
- driving test, exam
- job interview nerves.
I usually suggest an initial consultation, free of charge, during which we can talk about your issue in detail and you can learn a little but more about how hypnotherapy could help. Assuming it's right for you, we would then go ahead and book in sessions. I would usually suggest 3 - 4 sessions, then a review of progress / goals to make sure you that are getting what you need from the therapy.
It's really important that you find the right therapist for you, so feel free to take a look at my website to find out a little bit more about me and my practice, or give me a call or drop me a line to arrange a no obligation chat.
"I reached out to Louisa for help understanding my eating habits and my hidden motives behind them. She almost immediately uncovered what the issue was. She then worked with me and helped me to realise how some of the difficult situations can be overcome. I was amazed how quickly we reached the point in my therapy where I could see tangible benefits of our weekly sessions." Sarah – Weight Management
"I can honestly say I haven't had any problems. I attended a wedding 2 days after the hypnotherapy and thought it would be difficult in a drinking environment but I didn't have a problem the whole weekend. Then came the major test - darts night! But it was easy - it never entered my head to wander outside for a smoke so I sat and chatted all night. I'm off on a golfing weekend next with 3 smokers - I know I'll be fine." Chris - Quit Smoking
"I was at a loss as to how to help my son...I wasn't sure if hypnotherapy was appropriate for a child. We went for a free consultation with Louisa to find out more and I felt at ease straight away. It was instantly apparent that my son was really comfortable with Louisa, she's very lovely, so we embarked on a short programme of sessions. I have been so surprised at the positive results and how much of a difference it's made to my son's sense of confidence, not just with the initial phobia, but also with other situations at school. My son enjoyed the whole process so much, and was so comfortable with Louisa that he was actually sorry when the programme came to an end! Laura, Jack's mum, Phobia

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
* If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.
Free initial consultation
My fees are £40 per session and this will usually last 1 hour.
Smoking Cessation requires a longer one-off session of up to 2 hours and costs £80.
The structure of each session is usually some talking time at the beginning which is a really important part of the session, then you will relax and enjoy 30 to 40 minutes of therapy under hypnosis. I will talk you through the process of relaxing physically and mentally, and then will employ various therapeutic techniques to focus you on overcoming whatever the issue is and looking to the future. It can feel a little strange at first, but usually clients very quickly enjoy the experience and become skilled at inducing a state of hypnosis without much direction.
Although I can help with a variety of issues, for those interested in tailored hypnobirthing, I have devised a 4-step programme to help with relaxation, letting go of fear and anxiety and learning techniques for a calm and controlled birth. This will be personalised to suit you and any particular worries or concerns based on previous experiences or pre-conceptions that you may have around giving birth. As a mum of 2, this is an area that I have a particular interest in and would love to help you during this special and exciting time in your life.
I am available to offer daytime and evening appointments during the week, and can offer weekend appointments if specifically required.
