Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

What Adrian's clients have to say
"I had suffered from severe panic and anxity attacks for the past 20 years. A freind happend to mention it could be related to a traumatic incident that happened in my youth. By good chance I found Adrian at the Wellbeing Clinic. I felt Adrian understood my situation and we worked together in a control way to deal with the trauma. He often spent much more time with me than the normal hour session at no extra cost. I felt very comfortable with Adrian and his methods and do now feel as though I have much more control of my life." (Five Stars) -Michael, Traumatic Event.
"Life was starting to feel pretty overwhelming and I had been starting to become very anxious and suffering from depression. Adrian did some counselling sessions and mindfulness hypnotherapy with me and he’s brought my anxiety levels right down. He’s very easy to talk to and gave me some good techniques to help me manage any anxiety. Well worth a visit and I’ve recommended him to several friends already." -Mary M, Anxiety Depression.
"I had suffered trauma and an abusive relationship before I turned 20 and had not dealt with any of the issues I was left with for 10 years. With my anxiety levels high and my confidence very low, being 30 and still single, I couldn’t take my low feelings anymore and knew I had to do something now. After research and reading Adrian’s Wellbeinghypnotherapy website, I felt that Adrian was the right therapist for me. I cannot tell you how pleased I am! Adrian is very welcoming, caring and professional. He is easy to talk to and made me feel like I could trust him with my thoughts, fears and problems. Adrian explained everything I needed to know reassuring me that the experience will be positive, with the hypnotherapy and mindfulness exercises- I will feel better. I have had around 10 sessions and I can honestly say I feel amazingly much happier with myself and ready to take on future situations. Adrian has helped me learn to put the past behind me and move forward. If you are reading this and hesitating whether to take this step or not- please do as Adrian is a life changer, please do not suffer any longer! Thank you Adrian Sonnex" -Katie W, Domestic Violence, Confidence
“Me and my husband both have been seeing Adrian Sonnex of wellbeinghypnotherapy – Morden using hypnotherapy to stop us smoking and using cocaine. We found it worked excellent, we are now both free of smoking and cocaine for 3 years and never looked back. Adrian helped us to turn our lives around, he was such a big help to our family, always making sure that we addressed all our issues at the end of a session. He genuinely wanted us to do well and had our best interest all the way throughout our journey. I also recently saw him with my anxiety problem and to be honest I don’t know how I would have coped without him. He helped me to calm down and get rid of my fears with hypnotherapy, thanks to him I can fully enjoy my life again. I would recommend Adrian to anybody who would like to improve their lives whether it’s addictions, anger, depression or fears, I will always remember what he did for my family.” (Five Stars) -Eve S, Stop Smoking, Cocaine Therapy, Anxiety.
