Alice Harbourne DClinHyp (MNCH) (HPD) – online help with social anxiety
Most of us know what it feels like to feel anxious from time to time, but to live with it daily can be all-consuming. It can interfere with your social life, restrain your ambition and lead you to not feeling good enough, no matter what you achieve.
As a fully qualified, registered and insured clinical hypnotherapist, I offer a confidential and supportive space for you to explore your concerns and challenge unhelpful beliefs.
It's not about transforming your life into the Instagram paradise it might appear everyone else is living, but empowering you to approach life's ups and downs with the calm confidence that you can cope.
I use evidence-based approaches, integrating CBT, solution-focused and conversational hypnosis techniques, specialising in social anxiety. Following a free phone consultation, I'll work to get a full understanding of your situation and then draw on a range of proven techniques towards your therapy goals.
Further questions or want to know more? Just drop me an email or schedule a call and I'll be happy to help.

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.
Please allow up to 75 minutes for your first session. Follow-up sessions are 50 minutes.
Consultation and treatment over secure video link. 50 minutes.
Change of plans? If you can, let me know at least 48 hours before your appointment so I can refund you in full.
If you cancel within 48 to 24 hours of your session I’ll charge you a 50% cancellation fee. After that, I may charge you the full fee (except in emergencies).
Diversity and inclusion
I am committed to practising in a way that is actively anti-racist and inclusive. I treat every client I encounter with unconditional positive regard, respect and dignity, irrespective of: race, age, nationality, gender identity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, political affiliation, body size, neurodiversity, visible and invisible disability, choice of pronouns and parental status.
