About me

Hello, I’m Annette Sloly and I am an experienced Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist BA Hons. DHP HPD DSFH CNHC MNCH (Reg) With a lifelong interest in mindfulness, neuroscience, and corporate experience, it is my privilege to help people build the resilience they need to manage anxiety and stress and ultimately lead happier lives.

Being wholly committed to my personal and professional development; as well as cultivating curiosity and compassion over the years has helped me hone my approach and informs my work in the areas of fear, anxiety, and stress. I have had the pleasure of working with a range of people from all walks of life in both the public and private sectors as well as in specialist areas of performance psychology – fear of public speaking, stage fright, and optimal performance in the performing arts and sports performance.

‘Annette has been fantastically helpful for me, straight from the first session I was sure that I’d made the right decision in booking a session. She has really helped me transform how I deal with stressful situations. I am now able to take a step back from challenges and think clearly in making decisions. In addition to this she’s helped me learn stress reduction and mindfulness techniques, which have helped me to really develop a feeling of calmness and reduce anxiety. This has had an immense impact on my life as I feel I can now be myself in all situations, without stress and anxiety holding me back.’
Laura, 36, Bristol.

Further information

It is a great privilege to help people manage fear, stress and anxiety – and ultimately lead happier lives. I am an experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist, with a lifelong personal interest in meditation, a rich performing arts history, and corporate experience heading up teams in production and project management. This multi-faceted experience has helped me hone my approach: a synthesis of therapeutic disciplines that informs and supports my work – with everyone from undergraduates suffering from exam anxiety and professionals struggling to manage stress, to world-class recording artists and actors looking to improve their performance. I specialise in areas of performance psychology – stage fright and optimal performance in public speaking, the performing arts and sports performance.

My journey is one of transformation: it’s the motivation behind my vocation and the positive change I seek to inspire in others. Following family trauma in my early teens, I suffered from anxiety including PTSD, that affected my confidence and performance. Through therapy and personal practice, I learnt how to manage distorted thought patterns and feelings, and the empowering sense of control and resilience this gave me – it was life changing. My interest in helping people achieve goals grew out of my interactions with friends, family members, mentoring students and team members – I have always had an empathy for peoples’ problems. I went on to explore the mind and body in more detail, both through academic study and personal practice, later qualifying as a Clinical Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist.

Outside of the office, I deepen my understanding of mindfulness and compassionate awareness through daily practice, as well as attending CPDs, retreats and workshops.  I have performed on Radio and Television so understand the challenges of performance; I am a classically trained Violinist, and hold a BA Hons in Drama & English Literature (The University of Kent).  My interests include watching comedy and drama, reading, meditation, theatre, international relations, history and teaching my son the power of curiosity. I enjoy hiking and spending time in nature, as well as practising yoga and pilates and learning to play the Harp. Having lived most of my life in London, I moved to Bristol 12 years ago, so I split my time between both cities.  I support The Inspiring Leadership Trust, an international campaign to inspire and empower vulnerable women and their families to achieve their full potential.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.
