When looking for a therapist, sometimes the choice can be overwhelming. It can feel similar to browsing for a new car - most of us would like a test drive before committing ourselves!
That's exactly why I offer a free, no obligation, initial consultation, which usually lasts between 30 minutes and an hour. I know how important it is for you to feel comfortable with your therapist, after all you will be entrusting me with your heartfelt wishes, dreams and goals. Those things, I know, are uniquely important to you and when you become my client, they will be equally important to me too.
At the initial consultation you will have the chance to ask me any questions you want and we can discuss how you see the therapy working for you and what your goals are. It's a very exciting time because we can really start to plan how to make those changes that will make such a difference in your life.
I will also give you a copy of my hypnotherapy CD or MP3 which is beautifully relaxing and full of positive suggestions. This will be yours to keep whether you decide to go ahead with a treatment plan or not.
Following the initial consultation we can set up your first session which will be tailored for you so that you can really start to enjoy the benefits very quickly.
Moving on, let me tell you a little about myself. I first trained as a clinical hypnotherapist in 2005 after visiting a local hypnotherapist for issues of low self confidence. I was amazed at the changes I saw in myself and this encouraged me to learn more about this type of therapy. After extensive study I was delighted to qualify with the American Board of Hypnotherapy and began helping people that same year.
Fast forward to 2015, when I decided to re-train in the Solution Focused approach, which is a modern, up-to-date style of hypnotherapy as it blends positive psychology with hypnosis in a way that promotes the very best of results. I trained with the prestigious Clifton Practice in Oxford and achieved my Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) with the National Council for Hypnotherapy. This is considered the gold standard in the industry.
I also began training in BrainWorking Recursive Therapy (BWRT) with the pioneering developer, Terence Watts, early in 2017, qualifying as an Advanced BWRT practitioner in October 2017. This therapy is not hypnosis but works in an amazingly quick and effective way to make long-lasting change. If you haven't heard about it yet, I am sure it will soon start hitting the headlines more and more as a new "wonder" treatment.
In truth, the learning never stops and I am committed to keeping up-to-date with my skills so that I can offer great results to my clients.
I offer a friendly, caring approach and will answer any questions you might have without judgement or any fear of being criticised.
I work from a very comfortable private 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.
On a final note, if you have managed to stay with me to the end, it's my pleasure to share with you a Deep Sleep Hypnosis track that I recorded for my You Tube channel.
Just click the link below and it will give you the chance to hear my voice and decide if you would like to work with me further.
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 problems
- Bullying (relationship or school)
- Substance Abuse

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
