About me

Hello I'm Alexandra. I offer Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy (Hypno-psychotherapy) to enable long lasting positive change. 

If you are struggling with issues such as: Anxiety, addiction, abuse (including physical, emotional, sexual, past or present), body image, depression, eating disorder, low self-esteem, negative cycles or patterns, physical health problems, psychosomatic health issues, post traumatic stress, relationship or family problems, unwanted habits or trauma, I can help.

I am qualified and accredited, work both short and long term and offer sessions online on Zoom as well as face to face in Brighton & Hove.

I know finding the right therapist and starting therapy can be daunting, so I offer a FREE 20 minute consultation call as a chance for you to ask me any questions you may have as well as for us to see if we would be a good fit to work together. Contact me now to book your complimentary call:

About Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy:
Also known as hypno-analysis, Hypno-psychotherapy

This is a highly effective approach, allowing you to discover the roots of issues and bring resolution. My approach is trauma informed, somatic and holistic.

Hypnosis is a form of deep relaxation in which your conscious mind is quiet, allowing you to explore your subconscious thoughts, feelings, memories and emotions without over thinking. You are in control the whole time and I am there to guide and support you.

The psychotherapeutic approach means that we will aim to find the root cause of issues, explore subconscious influences, consider the ways in which the past and present overlap and finally break cycles.

During a therapy session we would first speak about what you want to work on, followed by a hypnosis in which we may do any of: investigate, get answers, bring resolution, or find relaxation, healing and letting go. Each session is individual and tailored to you and your needs.

Also known as Hypno-Psychotherapy, Hypnoanalysis or Analytical Hypnotherapy.

About Me:

I provide a safe, confidential, empathic space where you will always be treated with compassion and respect.

I take a holistic approach working with mind, body and soul and am trained in Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy as well as various energy healing modalities including Reiki and Crystal Healing. A spiritual approach can be included in therapy as much or as little as clients would like.

Member organisations

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

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.

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

I work dynamically, utilising different styles of therapy depending on your needs.

You do not need to know what type of therapy you would like, but if you are looking for a particular type of therapy, some of the styles and techniques I use include… Analytical Hypnotherapy, Dream Analysis, Eye Movement Therapy*, Guided Relaxation, Holistic, Humanistic, Hypnoanalysis, Hypno-Psychotherapy, Inner Child Therapy, Jungian, Mindfulness, Parts work, Past Life Regression, Psychodynamic, Regression, Spiritual Therapy, Somatic, Trauma Informed.
((*Eye Movement Therapy - Based on techniques and principles of both Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) and Eye Movement Integration Therapy (EMIT).))

If you are struggling with something that isn't on the list, please feel free to contact me to see if it is something I can help you with.

Client Testimonial:

''Alexandra has a wonderful way of making you feel extremely comfortable, as if you have known her a very long time. I feel very safe in her hands and I have been able to deal with lots of things, even some deep set trauma I wasn’t aware was causing problems for me! Alexandra is a very supportive, caring and understanding person, someone you can trust and be your true self with. A truly incredible therapist prepared to go that extra mile for clients! I am so grateful for Alexandra’s help and don’t know where I’d be without her!''
