About me

Hi, I'm Alison, a qualified Hypnotherapist working in Macclesfield and providing a service to people from many areas of Cheshire.  I support clients with stress, anxiety, including phobias, pain management, relaxation, self-confidence, smoking cessation and weight loss. 
If you feel that you have tried everything you can to overcome an issue or achieve a goal in your life, but you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed by it, then hypnotherapy could help you. Hypnotherapy is a gentle way to access patterns of behaviours in the subconscious thinking and teach your inner self to behave differently.

Working with me, you can learn the tools needed to take into your future and change the way you think and feel on a subconscious level. 

I support people who are experiencing anxiety, whether that is generalised anxiety, phobias and fears or social anxiety. 

One of the main areas I work in is stop smoking hypnotherapy and have helped a huge number of people to become non-smokers in my 3 session course. 

If you feel nervous or unsure about hypnotherapy. I offer a FREE phone consultation where you are free to ask any questions you may have and hear about the process of hypnotherapy. 

If you are serious about making a change in your life and feeling different during your day to day, then get in touch now to find out how we can work together. 

I am also a qualified counsellor and offer this service alone or alongside hypnotherapy.

I also offer an initial consultation for free, which allows you to inform me about your issue as well as deciding whether Hypnotherapy is the correct treatment for you. There is no obligation to continue after this session, so please do get in touch to see how I can help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Level 4 psychodynamic integrative counsellor
  • Member of the National Hypnotherapy Society

My experience

I have a great amount of experience working with clients who need help and support with stress and anxiety. I have deepened my knowledge of working with those wanting to overcome anxiety through a number of courses. I teach conscious strategies as well as working under hypnosis as I feel that this gives the best possible outcome for people. I have also completed a number of group sessions to help people overcome stress and anxiety both at the location of my practise in Macclesfield and within work settings. I help people who have anxiety through stress, phobias, generalised anxiety, ADHD and autism. 

I also have plenty of experience working with those who would like to stop smoking and I feel that my stop smoking hypnotherapy sessions are highly successful. Again, I teach conscious strategies as well as the work under hypnosis as I feel this gives the best possible outcome for the client. 

I work with many clients who would like to lose weight and I am trained in the hypno-gastric band. This allows me to help people with portion sizes as well as their view about food and motivation for losing weight and exercise. 

I also have experience of working with other issues and these can be seen in my profile. If you have an issue you would like to overcome please don't hesitate to contact me. 

I am a member of the Hypnotherapy Society which is recognised by the professional standards authority. This ensures that I work to a code of ethics, resulting in safe and professional practice.

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 specialise in hypnobirthing and I teach both group and private sessions in Macclesfield. I have also trained in helping ladies who are moving the through the menopause. When working with the menopause I cover areas which are needed for the individual client for example, insomnia, hot flushes and anxiety. 

Please contact me to find out how we can work together and give you the best possible outcome. 

I am also a qualified counsellor and work with people through counselling. This is offered as stand alone or in combination with hypnotherapy.
