I am a highly qualified and experienced Complementary and Natural Health Care (CNHC) registered hypnotherapist and hypo-psychotherapist and provide a caring and professional service for a variety of issues.
I am experienced in working with a wide range of issues and am an anxiety specialist, working with a range of anxiety issues including panic attacks, phobias, extreme shyness, fears and generalised anxiety.
I am warm and non-judgemental and will work with you to make the changes you're seeking. My aim is to help you to make lasting changes in as short a time as possible, working with you to find solutions. I focus on the importance of the therapeutic relationship and believe that every person is individual, so each and every session is tailored accordingly.
Hypnotherapy and hypno-psychotherapy are very effective for all kinds of anxiety treatment Chester and I am experienced in working with many different types of anxiety.
Training, qualifications & experience
I offer a professional, safe and confidential service and am highly trained, experienced and skilled. I have been a qualified Hypnotherapist since 2005 and have also trained at Masters Level as a Hypno-psychotherapist, with the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy; one of the longest established schools of Hypnotherapy / Hypno-psychotherapy in the UK and a recognised centre of excellence accredited by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), the UK’s leading professional body for the education, training and accreditation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors.
I am fully qualified to work remotely via Skype or zoom, so can offer remote therapy during this time of social isolation.
I am an anxiety specialist and have advanced anxiety qualifications and a wealth of experience in this area.
I am also a qualified Human Social Functioning practitioner. Human Social Functioning along with its assessment tool the HSF Scale can help you to make changes in your life.
The HSF scale has questions across a range of areas touching both satisfaction and frustration in daily life.
Your responses to the questions provide an indication as to how your energy is being used and by how much, whether positively (providing satisfaction) or negatively (experiencing frustrations).
When your answers are scored, the results are drawn out as a diagram so that you can see the balance of your functioning in terms of frustration and satisfaction and the areas where you can start to make changes. This gives you the control over your progress towards your goal.

If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy, Hypno-psychotherapy: £60 per session.
Smoking cessation: £120 for the one-off session
I have had so many people contact me over the past weeks struggling to deal with their anxiety surrounding the increasingly distressing global situation regarding the Coronavirus. Both new clients and existing ones are concerned about starting or carrying on with a course of therapy, and wondering what to do.
During the current situation, it is increasingly important that people look after their mental health and wellbeing. Some years ago I undertook a qualification with the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy in working with clients on-line. This can be via FaceTime, Skype or Zoom, or over the telephone, and clients can be in the comfort of their own home.
So this is an option that is available to new and existing clients. Whilst being in isolation, mental wellbeing doesn’t have to suffer . During this time I am offering FREE 30 minute telephone consultations, so please contact me via my details above or through my website www.hypnochester.co.uk
