I am a fully qualified solution focused hypnotherapist and advanced BWRT practitioner.
I have studied and am certified in other areas of hypnotherapy including:
Complete Mind Therapy (CMT)
Mind Emotion Liberation Techniques (MELT) and
Complete Unconscious Reprogramming for Emotional Disease & Distress (CURED).
The solution focused approach describes a special type of hypnotherapy that combines hypnosis with positive psychology to give really good results and it's excellent for helping people who are suffering from anxiety or feeling overwhelmed with life, as well as encouraging future happiness and success.
Some people wonder what it is like to experience hypnosis and may feel afraid that they will be stuck in some strange kind of state. Nothing could be further from the truth! Hypnotherapy is a completely natural process - just as natural as other altered states like sleep, meditation or daydreaming. Hypnosis harnesses the power of the imagination and a state of relaxed focus in order to create an environment in our minds that is receptive to change. When we use positive suggestions whilst in that receptive state of mind we are able to access the subconscious mind in a very beneficial way to create those changes we want in our lives.
I offer a friendly, caring approach and will answer any questions you might have without judgement or any fear of being criticised. If you want hypnotherapy without the solution focused approach, that is fine too - I'm very versatile and happy to discuss your needs!
I can also work with many different conditions, such as anxiety, fears/phobias, quitting smoking, self esteem and confidence, driving nerves, fear of flying, depression, stress, overthinking and weight management. This is not a complete list and I am happy to talk to you about how I can help you. (See more conditions below).
I have a very comfortable home therapy room in Hinckley but can also see you at the Burbage House Health Clinic, Hinckley if you would prefer a more clinical setting, or the ARC Centre, Leicester if that is more convenient.
I am a member of the CNHC, which sets out standards and guidelines for its members so that you can be assured of my best attention at all times. I am also a member of the AfSFH, which is a guild specifically created for solution focused hypnotherapists and which also has a strict code of ethics for its members to adhere to.
Further, I am a registered member of the BWRS (Brain Working Recursive Society). All of these associations and guilds have web pages where you can find out more information about them and their members. I hold an enhanced DBS Certificate (formerly CRB check) which can give you the confidence that I am able to work with vulnerable adults and children.
If you would like more information, or just a chat, I would love to hear from you.
I look forward to helping you look forward.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
I am trained in Level 1 and Level 2 BWRT (BrainWorking Recursive Therapy)
Hypnotherapy and BWRT are completely different therapies and would not be mixed together in a single session. BWRT is not a form of hypnotherapy and does not use trance states, however it can complement hypnotherapy nicely, or work as a stand alone therapy, for those seeking help for many, many conditions.
BWRT is a method of psychology that is very fast and effective. Clients can have sessions of hypnotherapy and / or BWRT at different times for a very comprehensive treatment package.
BWRT Level 1 can help with the following areas:
- Commitment Anxiety
- Panic attacks
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Exam anxiety
- Social Phobia
- Success Inhibition
- Fear of failure
- All types of Performance Anxiety
- Self Worth/Self-Confidence Issues
- Fear of Authority
- Relationship Issues
and BWRT 2 can deal with even deeper issues, including:
- Postnatal Depression
- Eating Disorders
- Binge eating and drinking
- Sexual obsession/addiction
- Porn addiction
- Masturbation fixation
- Bullying (relationship or school)
- Substance Abuse

I offer a free initial consultation when working with solution focused hypnotherapy, where we can gather information and discuss what you want to achieve from our sessions together.
Following the initial consultation, hypnotherapy sessions are £60.00, lasting around 1 hour.
Smoking cessation costs £150.00 and is a one-off session lasting around 2 hours.
BWRT sessions cost £60.00 and last around 1 hour, but can last up to 2 hours depending on what we are dealing with. Often an initial consultation is unnecessary and we can discuss and start the therapy on the same day.

I have the opportunity of working from either my home therapy room in Hinckley or in clinics at Burbage or Leicester.
Some Testimonials taken from my Facebook Page and Google Review - Real Feedback by Real People
Vicky has turned my life around. Days after my first session I was sleeping well. After a few sessions I was able to manage my anxiety and stress without resorting to coping mechanisms such as eating a whole pack of biscuits. Every aspect of my life has improved and I feel like myself again. ST, Leicester
I visited Vicky on Wednesday 2nd of August 2017 for a session of BWRT. The day my life changed and I will never forget it. I had been experiencing and altered mood and had become very low and isolated. Having tried other routes I was lucky enough, finally to find Vicky. I left her home therapy room with a smile on my face ... I am like the Cheshire Cat. My hubby is overwhelmed by the change in me. My anxiety has left and I am calmer and concentrated. Amazing. I would highly recommend Vicky who is a lovely lady, with a fabulous comfy chair and extraordinary talent. Thank you for helping my Vicky, I will be telling everyone about you and Trance for a Change. JA, Leicestershire
Vicky is a lovely lady who really puts me at ease. She explains how the brain works with hypnotherapy which makes it easier for me to relate to the process. Having said that, I haven't a clue what it is she's actually doing as I'm in such a comfortable, relaxed state I can only really remember waking up (or coming to, as I'm not actually asleep). All I know is that I float out of her treatment room and that I'm feeling better after only a few visits. Thank you so much Vicky. See you soon. JR, Stoke Golding
Vicky has really helped me over the last couple of months with my anxieties, hypnotherapy has given me a whole new lease of life. Fully recommend this wonderful lady to anyone who struggles with things like anxiety!! Thank you so much Vicky :) BM, Coventry
Vicky helped me to stop biting my nails after 30 years or more. I haven't bitten them since. It was the only thing that worked for me hypnotherapy. LS, Leicester
Vicky is a wonderful therapist who I would recommend to everyone. She has the most soothing voice and caring nature. She genuinely is one of the nicest and most supportive people I have ever met xx
My experience with Vicky;
If anyone has any concerns in their life with overcoming a particular event or situation in their life that causes stress or anxiety, I would recommend hypnotherapy and especially by our lovely Vicky Tunaley.
She so kindly and caringly took me as client when I had experienced an anxiety overspilled driving test. A few days before the test day I became nervous and by test day I was shaking and close to tears.
Vicky taught me that my brain realised how stressed I was because I believed I was about to encounter a horrific experience, which is how I had built it up to be in my mind. The brain, in these situations autopilots us to escape the danger.
Vicky suggested we needed to re-wind that experience as, even reliving it in my mind, I again became anxious. She also advised that the brain cannot know the difference between truth and imagination. Therefore every time I went over it in my head, my brain thought it was real. We spent a session re-winding the experience and afterwards, especially the next day, it was better. I felt like I'd really got over it.
The night before my re-test, Vicky had a session with me which she called a Reframe. We spent a long time going over a very detailed description of how the next day would go and how positive it was going to be. She then hypnotised me and recalled this day to me.
I can happily say I passed the test and on the day I was able to control my nerves and felt so positive that I just needed to engage the intellectual part of my brain to see the test through.
I can honestly say I dont see how I would have controlled the nerves or myself if I hadnt of had those valuable sessions with Vicky.
The brain, and how Vicky describes it too, is such a powerful and magnificent tool.
I'd recommend giving hypnotherapy a chance to anyone. Vicky in particular as a person has a soothing voice and genuinely cares about helping people.
Thank you for reading my story. NT Nuneaton
