Not sure where to start?

We know when you’re facing a personal problem, the idea of reaching out and seeking professional support can be daunting. Not knowing where to start or who to turn to can also feel overwhelming. We're here to make the process easier, providing you with the tools you need to make an informed decision about your next step.

To start, choose where you are on your journey:

Is hypnotherapy right for me?

With so many different types of mental health professionals and therapies available, we understand that it's easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure about what type of therapy is right for you. If you have acknowledged that you’re ready to seek help, however, just being here and reading this is a hugely positive step in the right direction. Remember to be kind to yourself and give yourself the time you need to learn more about hypnotherapy and what it could offer you.

Having access to the right information is key. There is a lot of conflicting information available online, and this in itself can cause confusion and anxiety. At Hypnotherapy Directory, we aim to provide accurate, up-to-date information.

You can find out more about hypnotherapy itself and what it involves on our 'What is hypnotherapy?' page. Our FAQs section also addresses questions such as ‘What will happen in a hypnotherapy session?’ And ‘Does everyone respond to hypnotherapy?’

To see some common reasons why people turn to hypnotherapy, browse our Hypnotherapy A-Z section. This contains detailed information about what hypnotherapy can help with. Many of our hypnotherapists provide insight and advice too; you can find this in our Expert articles section.

Expert guidance is invaluable when it comes to learning more about hypnotherapy and whether it's right for you, but it can also be helpful to hear about other people's experiences. To read how others found their hypnotherapy process, visit the Your stories section. Here you'll find honest, personal experiences from people who have had hypnotherapy to help them make a positive change in their lives.

Read as much or as little information that feels right for you. Trust yourself and if you feel overwhelmed while reading, you may need a break to digest everything. You may find the information provided offers a sense of relief. Or you may find that you'd like to contact a hypnotherapist to continue your journey.

I want to find a hypnotherapist

If you have decided that you want to explore hypnotherapy further, your next step is to find a hypnotherapist who resonates with you. We have over 1,900 hypnotherapists listed with us – all with different expertise and approaches.

To help you find a hypnotherapist you feel comfortable working with, use our advanced search tool. Using this, you can refine your search by location (or you can search for a hypnotherapist who offers online sessions), the area you'd like help with, the type of practitioner and any other keywords you feel are relevant.

Hypnotherapy is not an industry regulated by law, this means anyone can call themselves a hypnotherapist. To ensure everyone we list has had professional training, we have implemented a proof policy.
