Cassy Alexander Clinical Hypnotherapist MNCH, CNHC regd
Hypnotherapy is a safe and highly effective method of intervention allowing the therapist to communicate directly with the client’s subconscious mind. This is responsible for 90% of who we are and how we feel, think and behave.
I use hypnotherapy and psychotherapy to help adults and children resolve many of the problems they are struggling with such as addictions, impact of abuse or sexual trauma, anxiety and stress, phobias, weight management, and lack of confidence.
I have worked with children, adults and families for many years, and more recently, I have added hypnotherapy to my psychotherapeutic work, and this has proved really helpful and effective for my clients.
If you would like to find out whether hypnotherapy could help you, please phone or email me to set up an initial session, to talk about what you want to get from hypnotherapy. If you’re happy to continue, we can set up a second session, and then I’ll arrange to see you weekly or fortnightly if several sessions are required.

it is not possible to know how many sessions will be required as my Hypnotherapy is tailored to your exact needs, but deep seated trauma or abuse work is likely to need a course of therapy, and weight management, including hypno gastric band surgery is usually 4 sessions.
Phobias, fears, anxiety, stress, addictions and many other issues may only require 2/3 sessions
Smoking cessation can be achieved in one session, but two can be offered if you prefer. I am sorry that I am not able to offer reduced rates for this particular issue.
I specialise in working with survivors of abuse and trauma, weight management issues, and adults and children who are struggling to cope with addictions, anxieties and stress. I use a combination of hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, and inner child work to help people recover and find a way to live well.
My therapy room is a safe place for people to come and experience the relaxing state of hypnotherapy which is such a wonderful way of helping people as it allows me to talk to your subconscious mind which controls 90% of who we are, and how we feel, think and act. Whenever we are struggling in our lives and not feeling happy or content, this means that our subconscious mind is not working in harmony with the 10% conscious mind, which we can control. Always know that our subconscious mind is trying to protect us and essentially to keep us alive. It cannot think or reason, rather holds all our memories, beliefs, emotions. It has no age, and so events from many years ago are held the same as events from yesterday, and the subconscious mind is essentially a childlike mind which does not distinguish real from imagined.
Hypnotherapy works with the subconscious mind and so is so much more powerful that psychotherapy alone, due to the therapist’s access to the 90% rather than just the 10% of the mind.
