Nikki Parsons (DipCogHypHPD)
My name is Nikki Parsons and I am a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Personal Development Coach working in Bognor Regis.
Are you feeling you need help with a problem and don't know where to turn? Do you wish to make positive changes in your life? If so, my approach may help you in a much faster time than you imagine. My environment is both safe and confidential ,and we can work together to help you lead the life you want.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a modern approach to therapy utilising a wide range of techniques in addition to hypnosis. These include NLP (Neuro-Linquistic Programming),EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique }, CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) Positive Psychology,Gestalt Therapy and Transactional Analysis.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy helps with a wide range of issues not usually associated with hypnosis.
I am also a Confident Childbirth Practitioner and can help you to have a positive birth experience using Hypnobirthing techniques. I work on a one to one basis , with couples and run small groups.
I am a qualified teacher and worked for many years in a Primary Special School. I also obtained a Diploma in Humanistic Counselling. Although counselling can be very beneficial I soon became interested in the unconscious mind and trained in Cognitive Hypnotherapy at the renowned Quest Institute in London. I am constantly amazed at the results achieved by my clients and the positive changes that are made.
I also work as a Personal Development Coach working with clients on a longer term basis . I can help you to achieve your dreams, uncover potential blocks to success and happiness, and lead you towards a more fulfilling life. I can help in the areas of relationships, business and personal life.
I also work with couples who would like help with their relationship using a unique approach devised by Trevor Silvester using his book " Lovebirds" as a basis for the work . These sessions include at least two individual sessions with the clients aswell as couples work.
I came to see Nikki, as for a long time, I'd been suffering from anxiety. This was getting worse after the death of my son. I'd tried some other methods of helping with anxiety, but someone suggested that hypnotherapy might be an alternative method that works. I found myself worrying about all sorts of things that could happen, when in all probability they would not. I often lost sleep or felt compelled to leave early, check and double-check things to make sure that everything went to plan.
After working with Nikki I found my mind felt lighter and I am now more able to process things and put them in to perspective. My anxiety levels have decreased so much and Im sleeping much better. If I do get a little anxious I use the relaxation techniques Nikki taught me and they have made a very positive difference. I found the personalised recordings Nikki made me very helpful aswell and I listened to them daily.
Nikki has a great manner, very calming and whatever I wanted to talk about, she gave me the time to speak. She put me at ease and explained everything she was doing really well. I highly recommend her . ( David October 2016)
Extract from an email sent by the mother of an 11 year old client with an acute fear of dogs) July 2016
"My daughter has made huge progress in regards to dogs. I'm so pleased with how it's gone, I can't tell you. We went to the beach at the weekend and we took a friend of hers with us. She didn't even mention dogs before we walked down and even when there was a dog a little way away off it's lead she still didn't say anything! I was chuffed! We were at my mums yesterday and she was looking after 2 dogs. P made friends with them and was sitting on the floor cuddling them for ages.Its a huge positive change .Thank you . " ( July 2016)
"Nikki Parsons is the best kind of therapist...she helps you open the doors to your inner self and to your memories that have long been shut. But it is you that does the opening, you do the discovering and therefore it is you that does the healing. Over 6 weeks of working with Nikki, I found my way back to the real Me that I had come close to forgetting, and all the barriers that I had placed in my own way, that stopped me from leading the life I wanted and deserved, began to melt away." ( June 2016)
" I came to see Nikki as I had recently lost my son and was also concerned about my weight. I was becoming very low in spirit and finding taking control of my life ( particularly eating )very difficult. After working with Nikki I was much improved and continued to cope. Nikki's techniques were very useful and I continue to use them. Her manner and empathy were beyond reproach. Nikki made me feel comfortable and secure whilst remaining completely professional." ( Dec 2015 ) Margaret.
"When I came to see Nikki I was suffering from anxiety which stopped me eating and sleeping. I was losing weight and only sleeping for a few hours each night. Nikki was so helpful and understanding. I had never talked about my anxiety before but after the first session I was like a new me and felt so much better. When I had finished all my sessions my eating had improved a lot and I was sleeping much better. I would recommend Nikki to anyone as Ive not felt this happy or healthy for years. "( Dec 2015 ) Andrew "
" I became a non-smoker with Nikkis help on 2nd October 2015 and I cant believe its now the 4th November. It feels like I haven't smoked in a long time and I do not miss it one bit. All good so far. Its an amazing feeling and has reduced my stress levels. I'm certainly enjoying my life so much more than when I was planning my next nicotine hit!" (Nov 2015)
'Following EFT and hypnotherapy with Nikki I have been migraine free for 6 years. Before seeing Nikki I had 3 or more migraines a month which left me in bed all day and she has literally changed my life and taken away the fear of never knowing when I would have one. I have seen Nikki a couple of times since during some stressful periods of my life for top up EFT and hypnotherapy sessions which have again been really helpful in addressing the issues I had. Nikki's reassuring and calm manner immediately put me at ease during the sessions and she explained fully what would happen during treatment leaving me feeling totally in control. I really recommend Nikki for hypnotherapy or EFT it is life changing!' R. (Aug 2015)
"Nikki was very kind and understanding and helped my daughter overcome severe anxiety problems, particularly around food. The process and change worked very quickly and my daughter now has tools to help deal with any situations which cause her to feel anxious. I am delighted with the positive change in her since seeing Nikki. I would highly recommend her. Many thanks again, Sarah (May 2015 )

" Rather than it being a lengthy and difficult process, it is a swift "unlocking by magic"
"Nikki is a very special individual and I feel extremely fortunate to have experienced her therapy treatments"
