About me

Hello, and thank you for looking at my profile. I am Bobby-Jo Bottomley, a multi-award winning hypnotherapist, certified trainer and master practitioner of Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Emotional Freedom Technique and Life Coaching. I have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and Counselling and have experience in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.  I am also a clinical supervisor, online hypnotherapy course tutor and course author. Furthermore, I have over 20 years' experience in helping people within the field of behavioural change.

I am the founder and managing director of The Hampshire Hypnotherapy Clinic. Our mission is to transform thousands of lives by providing life changing programmes designed to help you become the best you can be and live the life you want to live.

I have always had a fascination with human behaviour and the workings of the mind.  It was when I struggled with my own personal challenges related to trauma, anxiety, depression and associated unhealthy habits and behaviours, that I experienced first-hand just how powerful our subconscious minds are and how transformational modalities that work with the subconscious mind can be.  I decided to make it my mission to help as many people as possible worldwide to overcome a variety of issues, using a combined approach and methodology of working with both the conscious and subconscious parts of the mind.  And so, The Hampshire Hypnotherapy Clinic was born!

So how do I work?

I use a combination of Hypnotherapy, NLP, EFT and Life Coaching to support you in getting the life you want. Hypnotherapy and NLP are both rapid transformational change therapies that work by changing your relationship with problematic issues or behaviours that prevent you from being the best version of you. We store beliefs about ourselves, both helpful and not so helpful, in our subconscious minds and therefore to make effective and lasting change to the unhelpful behaviours, it can be necessary for these to be changed at the subconscious level. Hypnotherapy and NLP are two of the only therapies that specifically target and work on the subconscious and together can provide an effective, rapid change in behaviour.

Having previously been a Probation Officer I am extremely non-judgemental and open in my approach. I work with you and the issues that you are struggling with. I am a firm believer that everyone has all the resources and knowledge that they need within themselves to resolve their problems; I have the privilege of supporting individuals through their personal journeys, discovering for themselves their own skills and strengths.

How hypnotherapy can help:

If you wish to make a change in your life, or simply feel stuck and are uncertain about how to move forward, I am here to help you. Whether it is a lack of self-confidence and self-belief, you are feeling stressed, anxious or depressed, you have a fear or phobia, you have an addiction or a weight issue, or lack direction, I can help you make the changes that you want to make so that you can live the life you want to live. I also help business owners and their employees to become more successful by increasing their confidence and effectiveness. Come and join me on a journey of self-discovery and personal development to make your future the best that it can be.

What to expect in your first session:

The first session can vary slightly as I work in a very client-centred way so will tailor each session to meet you and your individual needs. However, prior to the first session I will have completed a written summary of what we have discussed up to that point, which I will go through with you to check that I have understood you and your needs correctly. I will always go through a skill or technique with you in the first session so that you have something to take away with you, make use of and practice prior to our next session. I will also go through hypnosis with you.

I offer a free, no obligation 30 minute friendly telephone consultation; this allows me to find out more about the issues you are experiencing and we can discuss any questions or concerns that you have. Please feel free to find out more or contact me - information at the top of my profile!

Member organisations

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

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Both of the clinics that I work from have wheelchair access. Furthermore, they both have parking either available on site or extremely close and are situated along main bus routes.
