Are your emotions always just under the surface? Maybe you're feeling stuck, or overwhelmed? My name is Abby, and I work with people to help process their anxiety, overwhelm, and find a path through the difficulties in life. 

I work in-person in my therapy room in Surbiton, Surrey, as well as providing online therapy via Zoom. 

I'm an accredited hypnotherapist, and trained psychotherapist which allows me to use a wide range of techniques to help identify the root cause of your struggle, and work to overcome it.

Areas of Specialism

Anxiety 

Whether you experience general anxiety or have specific triggers, hypnotherapy can provide you with valuable tools to navigate anxiety and lead a calmer, more fulfilling life. I can help you uncover the underlying causes of your anxiety and develop personalised strategies to regain control of anxiety.

Depression 

Therapy can help by addressing the underlying emotional and psychological factors contributing to your depression. Through gentle and supportive hypnosis techniques, we can explore and transform negative thought patterns, release emotional burdens, and help you regain a sense of hope and motivation. Begin your journey towards healing and finding joy in life once again.

Social Anxiety

Are you ready to overcome social anxiety and relax in social situations? Through relaxation techniques, visualisation, and hypnosis, we will work together to uncover and reframe the negative beliefs and thought patterns that contribute to your social anxiety. I will guide you in building confidence and overcoming self-consciousness, allowing you to enjoy more fulfilling social interactions.

ADHD Therapy

ADHD-affirming therapy can help you to cope with overwhelming emotions like anxiety, grief, and frustration, and tap into more of your strengths to live with greater confidence and resilience in all aspects of life.

As an ADHD-friendly therapist with ADHD myself, I tailor traditional hypnotherapy interventions into dopamine-rich imaginative experiences.  Fidgeting, stimming and side quest stories are also embraced heartily in our therapy sessions.

Stress Management

Hypnotherapy can help you learn how to relax and deal with stress more effectively. This can be particularly helpful if you are struggling with anxiety due to work or personal life stressors.

Phobias

Experience life free from the grip of phobias through the remarkable power of hypnotherapy. Unlock the deep-rooted fears that hold you back from fully embracing life, and start living your life to the fullest. Hypnotherapy is a gentle and enjoyable way of identifying the root cause of your phobia and extinguishing it. 

Let's get started with your phobia:

  • fear of heights
  • fear of public speaking (glossophobia)
  • anxiety relating to driving
  • fear of flying (aerophobia)
  • spiders (arachnophobia)
  • fear of confined spaces (claustrophobia)
  • fear of water (hydrophobia)
  • fear of dogs (cynophobia)
  • fear of blood (hemophobia)
  • fear of needles (trypanophobia)
  • fear of the dentist and dentistry (dentophobia)
  • and many more

Confidence Issues 

Do you struggle with doubting your abilities, imposter syndrome or performance anxiety? Hypnotherapy can be a transformative approach to boost your self-confidence and self-belief.

By accessing the power of your subconscious mind, we can work together to identify and overcome the root causes of your confidence issues. Through targeted suggestions and visualisation techniques, I can help you reframe negative beliefs, develop a positive self-image, and unlock your true potential, allowing you to embrace life with confidence and authenticity.

Panic Attacks 

Panic attacks are often incredibly frightening and debilitating, and can often get in the way of living a normal life.  Through personalised strategies, I will provide tools to enable to to cope with (and ultimately recover from) your panic attacks, enabling you to live with a greater sense of calm and confidence. 

Sleep 

If you struggle with sleep issues, hypnotherapy can offer natural and non-invasive solutions to promote deep and restful sleep.  Our sessions will assist in retraining your mind and body to unwind, alleviate bedtime anxiety, relax, and embrace restorative sleep, allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed and revitalised.

Self-Esteem 

Are you struggling with chronic feelings of low self-worth, or patterns of self-sabotage? We can work together to address the beliefs and experiences shaping your negative self-perception. Through guided imagery, you can cultivate a strong and healthy self-esteem, allowing you to embrace your worth, celebrate your unique qualities, and live a more fulfilling and self-assured life.

LGBTQIA+ 

I provide a safe and inclusive space for individuals within the LGBTQIA+ community. Whether you seek support in navigating identity, self-acceptance, or overcoming discrimination-related stress, LGBTQIA+ affirming therapy can help you embrace your authentic self and live with greater confidence and resilience.

Hypnotherapy is a personal and individual experience. We will work together to a pace that works for you, tailored to your own goals and journey. I offer a service that is flexible, compassionate, confidential and friendly.
