Natalie Young DHP(NC) BSc Psych(hons) MBPsS MNSHPM CNHC - Aurora Mind and Body
The Counselling & Psychotherapy Centre
23 Bath Road
My name's Natalie and I welcome you to Aurora Mind and Body. I specialise in sports and fitness performance and provide solutions to help you get 'mind fit'. I don't yet know what you would like to achieve from your next big sport or fitness event, but I know you have the strength within you to do it - and I could help you find it.
What services does Aurora Mind and Body provide?
I provide integrative hypnotherapy and psychotherapy centred on sports and fitness performance. I'm also a REPs-accredited Yoga Teacher. Hypnotherapy combines brilliantly with psychotherapy so whether you like to talk or are more reflective, there are lots of ways we can approach getting you 'mind fit' and ready for your next big race, game, or even group exercise class!
Appointments can be provided face to face in Swindon or your appointment can come to you through my online or telephone virtual clinic.
What is 'integrative' hypnotherapy and psychotherapy?
You may see some hypnotherapists advertise themselves as solely 'solution-focussed' or solely 'cognitive-behavioural'. The beauty of being trained in integrative hypnotherapy and psychotherapy is that I'm able to draw on techniques from lots of different modalities to provide you with a therapy solution that meets your needs at the time of your session. For example, in one session we may look at your childhood, using techniques from psychoanalysis and NLP and another session we may use a solution-focussed or CBT approach to look at your goals and thought patterns. The possibilities are endless.
How could I help you?
While sport and fitness performance is my specialty, I can also help with other issues. I have experience in helping clients to lose weight, stop smoking, beat stress, manage insomnia and simply relax. I could also help you beat exam stress, manage chronic pain or overcome a phobia that has been bugging you for years.
If you would like to get 'mind fit', let's work on it together!

What is a hypno-psychotherapist?
"Hypno-psychotherapist" is the term used to distinguish hypnotherapists trained at masters-level. Hypno-psychotherapists are trained in psychotherapy as well as hypnosis and as a result, are able to use talking therapy as well as hypnosis in hypnotherapy treatments. This is important as hypnosis is not always the right tool for every issue (or indeed for every client).
It's important you choose the right therapist for you and it's equally important to make sure the therapist you choose is adequately trained.
