About us

When you come up against a problem, it can be hard to know where to turn for support. We're lucky that we live in a time where there are lots of professionals who can help in various ways, including ways you might not have considered before.

At Hypnotherapy Directory, we recognise the power hypnosis can have in overcoming problems and making a lasting change. We also know the world of hypnotherapy can feel a little unknown to some. This is why we've made it our mission to raise awareness of hypnotherapy, de-bunk common myths and connect people with professional support.


About Hypnotherapy Directory

Use the directory to browse and connect with experienced hypnotherapists to begin your own personal development journey, gaining support in areas such as confidence and motivation, overcoming addiction and managing fears and phobias.

The Happiful family

In 2005 two sisters, Aimi and Emma, launched Counselling Directory, a website dedicated to promoting the benefits of talk therapy. Having both experienced mental health issues at school and university, they knew how it felt to be overwhelmed and lacking guidance. They wanted to use their own experiences to help others find support from therapists. This formula of providing mental health information and detailed counsellor profiles proved successful, giving you the tools you need to find the right support for them.

Co-founder Aimi shares her journey on Fearne Cotton's Happy Place podcast.

In the years that followed, four other directories were born - all with the same mission to help people access support to improve their well-being. From counselling to coaching, holistic health and nutrition support, our directories cover all aspects of health and wellness. These websites form the Happiful family, a network of over 26,000 professionals.
