About me

Cognitive Hypnotherapy Specialist | Empowerment & Transformation over Heartbreak, Relationships, Anxiety, Lack of Confidence and Stress. 

I'm Aleena, the founder of South Star Therapy and an experienced cognitive hypnotherapist working with adults, businesses and young adults online to give them empowerment over their experiences. If you are sick and tired of just coping and are ready to shift the underlying causes of your issues, you're in the right place. 

I have the firm belief in the 'South Star', where we can honour and reframe our past experiences for a more powerful and present now. It can be hard to keep looking north when you are carrying the weight of the past, but together we work to transform your experiences.

I want you to know that by being here and reading this, you are already beginning to choose yourself, and this simple act demonstrates that some part of you is ready for growth, change and healing

Your life experiences have, in a way, hypnotised you into holding onto unhelpful beliefs about yourself. I help to de-hypnotise you so you can believe what you choose to. You don't have to think that your past determines your future. Whom you want to be is entirely up to you.

Unlike traditional hypnotherapy, the framework of Cognitive Hypnotherapy is grounded in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Gestalt therapy, Transactional Analysis, and Neuropsychology. This allows me to provide you with a tailored and flexible approach to give you the tools to change your current experience of the world. We look to break those unhelpful trance states that are keeping you stuck, together breaking down those pillars and discovering the path you deserve.  

I am committed to helping you navigate your feelings and experiences and guiding you to embody the person you want to be.  In my space, there's no room for judgment, only empathy and understanding. You deserve to have your voice heard, and I'm here, eager and ready to listen, because your journey matters.

As a cognitive hypnotherapist, I nurture your growth. I tailor my interventions and craft a unique treatment plan, just for you. To ensure your progress continues, I create personalised resources for you betweennsessions to strengthen our work together. 

I have worked with a number of different clients, professions and businesses to guide them towards meeting their goals. 

So, if you are feeling hopeless, trapped in behaviors that no longer serve you, or simply seeking a guiding hand through this phase of your journey, please reach out to me. Your goals are within reach, and together, we can make them a reality. Get in touch now by using the information below.

I work with the following mental health and wellbeing issues: depression, stress, anxiety and panic attacks, heartache and relationship breakdown, attachment issues, confidence issues, low self esteem, social awkwardness, anger management, bereavement, lack of purpose, not feeling enough, lack of direction, feeling lost, poor relationship selection/interaction (romantic/family/friends) and business performance.

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Social anxiety including imposter syndrome and public speaking/ performance anxiety.

Additional information

Free initial, zero-commitment, 20-minute discovery call. I want you to make the right decision and see if I am the right therapist for you. I am happy to help you make that choice and talk you through how I work and what cognitive hypnotherapy is. If I’m not the right fit, I am happy to guide you towards the right therapist or therapy that might work for you.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a rapid therapeutic technique compared to other therapies or counselling. I ask all clients to consider a minimum commitment of between 3-6 sessions to see and feel the positive effects of our work together.

Therapy is an investment in yourself, the most valuable person you know, and I believe it is important to commit to the work we carry out together.

An online session costs £70.00

A block of 3 investment sessions is £200 (Saving of £10.00)

A block of 6 investment sessions is £400 (Saving of £20.00)

I offer reduced sessions for students. The cost of these sessions are £50. No bundle options available for the student saving.

Your first session with me will be an initial consultation lasting 90 minutes. Subsequent sessions will be 60 minutes.

I have a lovely therapy room located in Barkingside. Please note there is no step free access available.
