Pauline Brumwell MNCS GHR Reg
I am a Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, located in the centre of Harrogate. I have worked as a therapist in a variety of settings for more than thirty years and offer effective and confidential help with a range of problems including: depression; anxiety; recovery from trauma, problems experienced by adults who have suffered childhood abuse and neglect; stress and anger management; difficulties with low self confidence and self esteem; weight and body image problems; and addictions, (including smoking, nicotine gum, alcohol and gambling addiction).
I believe that people have an inbuilt capacity to recover and find ways to move beyond even the most difficult circumstances and feelings and that hypnosis can create a state of focused relaxation that may be used where appropriate to enhance this process.
I offer a free, no-obligation telephone consultation for prospective new clients to discuss their particular needs and how I may be able to help..

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Post Traumatic Stress
Childhood abuse (physical, emotional and/or sexual) and neglect
I offer a free initial consultation on the telephone or by Skype. By the end of this session I should be able to give you a good idea of how I would be able to work with you.
If you decide to continue with therapy, I offer individually tailored 6 session packages for hypnotherapy clients at a total cost of £200 for daytime appointments or £250 evenings (sessions starting from 5.30pm). Each package includes up to 6 sessions of in-person hypnotherapy plus materials for home study. These packages represent a significant saving on my standard rates of £40 per daytime session or £50 per evening session where sessions are booked on a 'one at a time' basis.
I currently offer hypnotherapy based packages for the following issues:
Anxiety, Phobias, Sleep, Weight and body image issues, Confidence building, Addictions, Depression and Trauma.
I understand that finances are tight for many people in the current economic climate and am happy to discuss ways of spreading payments if this would be helpful for you.
I find hypnotherapy highly effective in enhancing relaxation, reducing anxiety and stress and increasing self-esteem and motivation. It can also be a very useful way of finding new solutions to problems, even if those problems have been bothering you for some time.
Hypnotherapy for a specific problem generally only takes a few sessions.
However, if people have suffered serious or ongoing neglect, separation or abuse as children; or long term abuse, multiple traumas or bereavements at any stage of their lives, they may find that the longer term psychotherapeutic counselling I offer would be more helpful for them.
