Hi, I'm Barbara, I specialise in helping children and young people with anxiety and also phobias.
Your relationship with your child
Lockdowns have contributed to strained relationships between children and parents.
I recently saw a young person who was extremely anxious about going back to school. His fears were that he didn't know how he would keep his family safe by going back to school and the possibility of bringing the virus home.
How should he greet his schoolmates? Should he hug, shake hands or keep his distance? After just four sessions with me, he was confident and happy to go back to school and is enjoying being a part of his social circle again.
I also get great results with people who suffer from fears or phobias.
A recent client that lived on an island, had been driving for 18 years on and around the island but could not leave as she was afraid of driving over 'the bridge'.
She had to rely on her husband or public transport. After our third session together, I received an unexpected phone call from my client, who was crying and excited as she asked me ‘guess where I am’?
She had driven over the bridge for the first time since she had begun driving!

Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) was set up to provide information about a modern form of Hypnotherapy and its associated benefits to members of the public. The main aim of the AfSFH is to spread awareness of the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
National Council for Hypnotherapy
The National Council for Hypnotherapy holds one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists in the United Kingdom and strives to maintain the highest standards among its members.
There is an agreed Code of Conduct, an established Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure and all members are obliged to maintain comprehensive Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance, maintain regular CPD (continuing professional development) hours, and attend Supervision when needed.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
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.
