About me

Hi, I'm Aileen and I am a Solution-focused Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. I offer online hypnotherapy to women approaching mid-life and beyond.

I can support you to overcome a wide range of issues from struggles with  anxiety and stress, low moods, insomnia, menopause, weight loss management, phobias, increasing confidence and self-esteem, and help you to move from feeling stuck to where you want to be.

Professional, friendly and caring, I am fully committed in supporting you to ‘feel right’, live better and thrive more.

My testimonials include:

‘I started off a bit unsure however, the hypnotherapy process exceeded my expectations. It has really given me an understanding of my thought processes and allowed me to fully feel and appreciate happiness and contentment. Aileen was very warm and reassuring. I now have better sleep patterns, better management of anxiety and more contentment. The sessions with Aileen really clicked with me. Her explanations and suggested methods were very clear and easy to understand It enabled me to look at my thought processes and make changes. This has had a positive impact on my wellbeing.’

Ann, London

‘I was pleasantly surprised how effective and professional the sessions were. Information on how the brain works with regards to mental health, and the trance sessions. Exceeded my expectations. Aileen has a calm, comforting and positive personality, and I looked forward to my sessions every week. I was feeling quite low and unable to move on from a personal issue, and knew I needed some professional help and guidance.  I went from tearful and low in my first two sessions to being light and filled with excitement for the present and the future by the end of the seventh. I continue to practice the tools given to me by Aileen for staying positive. The sessions were well structured and I felt safe and in good hands. Fast forward to seven sessions later and I am thoroughly pleased and pleasantly surprised how different I feel and think. I still use the tools learnt from the sessions to stay in a positive frame of mind. These have been a revelation and truly work. Thank you very much Aileen. I could not have done this without your help.’

Training, qualifications & experience

L4 Diploma in Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy (DFSH),  L3 in Counselling Skills

My vast experience of working with people from different walks of life combined with previous counselling skills training has given me the ability to support my clients move forward positively and live their lives more confidently and joyfully.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

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.
