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.
£75.00 per session
Initial session usually lasts 90 minutes with any subsequent sessions if required lasting between 60 and 90 minutes.
Hypnothin Weight Management £215.00
Consisting of 3 sessions and fitting of virtual gastric band if appropriate.
Smoking Cessation £180.00
Consisting of one session and option of second free session included if deemed necessary.
The number of sessions that it will take for you to get the outcome you want, very much depends on your personal circumstances. However, although the required changes can be made after just one session, it is a good idea to budget for two and for weight reduction three tends to have the best results.
Concessions may sometimes be available.
When I work
Normal office hours with evening appointments available with prior arrangement
“I contacted Andy out of desperation. My daughter was struggling with very low self esteem and I really didn’t know where to turn next. Hypnosis scared me a bit if I’m honest as I didn’t know anything about it. Andy came recommended by a friend and I’m so grateful. In three sessions she worked wonders. My daughter is so much happier and feels better equipped for dealing with her teenage emotions. One very happy parent and daughter. Thanks Andy. “JE
“Andy at Hypnotonic healing has had a massive positive impact on my life. Having struggled with my weight as long as I can remember , after a weight management course with Andy , I’m finally in a place of control, making the right choices and having many techniques that I will now always use. I am happier and healthier than I have ever been and this is all due to Andy. She is highly trained, professional , kind and compassionate and I can’t thank her enough ! Please if you struggle with your weight like me and you are not happy , make an appointment with Andy , it will change your life.” LW
"I recently had my Hypnotherapy session with Andy and I was extremely nervous. I think it takes a lot to admit you need help with something and Andy helped me to see this and eased me in with great compassion and empathy.
I have suffered with Emetaphobia (fear of vomit/vomiting) for as long as I can remember. I also have anxiety surrounding germs in general so not an easy nut to crack. It's been a constant burden and affected not just me but my entire family. Since having my son it has become much worse often manifesting itself into panic attacks and making my poor son bathe straight after nursery out of fear. I'm sad to say I even avoided taking him to soft play.
Well Andy to the rescue:) I'm pregnant again now and didn't want my sons to grow up with this same burden. Andy filled me with a sense of calm and quiet and that was before the session. I was led into comfortable beautiful surroundings and gently encouraged to explore my issue. It was emotional at times but Andy held my hand through it all. I can't explain how it works, that's Andy's job but for me my painful memories became either dulled or I simply couldn't remember being there anymore. They were insignificant and small and no longer a part of me. Its astounding.
Since going I still don't welcome being sick...I mean who does but it no longer fills me with fear or anxiety. Its just a normal and necessary mechanism. I find the effects get stronger as you do. I have been to soft play!!! and my son didn't have a bath last Wednesday straight after nursery, instead we made cakes!!! All I can say is if you are thinking about it just do it and Andy all I can do is thank you again for such a personal and life changing experience. Im forever grateful" Vikki
" Andy's vast experience working in the NHS has meant that she brings real compassion and knowledge to your situation. You feel completely confident in her care." CH
