Briony Prior Cert Hyp CS, CBT Level 3, Advanced CBT Level 4, MA
I live and practice hypnotherapy in Nottinghamshire. I have been a teacher for 30 years. I love my job. I am also a realist. What appeals to me hugely about hypnotherapy is that, contrary to popular belief, its success is entirely routed in logic and common sense. We are all aware that many of our everyday decisions are made automatically, by our subconscious minds: so it makes perfect sense to access our subconscious directly if we want to alter those unhelpful automatic thoughts.
I aim to provide a safe and empathetic environment in which we can explore the best way forward for you.
I am a member of both the National Hypnotherapy Society and the National Counselling Society, both accredited organisations.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Certificate in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills, from Chrysalis Courses and am presently completing a three year Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, also through Chrysalis Courses. I have a Level 3 award in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and a Level 4 award in Advanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I have been practicing hypnotherapy for just over a year.
National Hypnotherapy Society
The National Hypnotherapy Society is a Learned Society whose primary purpose is the advancement of the knowledge of hypnotherapy and the fostering of professional hypnotherapy expertise through training, accreditation and continued professional development of their members. The Society seeks to contribute to public wellbeing both through the use of hypnotherapy and by ensuring that hypnotherapists are safe, competent and ethical in practice.
Accredited register membership

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.
I offer weekly sessions at £50 per 50 minute session. However, a free initial telephone consultation is available. The first face to face or online consultation of up to an hour and a half is the same price of £50.
Smoking cessation involves two consultations following the initial telephone consultation: a first face to face or online consultation plus a hypnotherapy session, at £50 each.
