About me

Hi, I'm Charlie - and I can offer an integrative therapy approach meaning you get more from my services than just hypnotherapy.

Are you feeling stuck and unhappy? Perhaps with anxiety, stress or low confidence and just don't know where to turn? I can help.  As a Clinical Hypnotherapist my approach is generally 'solution focused' to get you from A to B.  But I don't believe everything can be quickly fixed which is why I'm also training to be a Psychotherapist. This means we can dig a little deeper and combine approaches to address the roots of your problems.

I am also very hands on and practical meaning that I share work sheets and plenty of tools and resources and also set homework so you can continue your progress in between sessions.  I truly believe that eventually we all become our own therapists.

I'm a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist undertaking further and ongoing training in Integrative Psychotherapy (through UKCP).

I am also a Mindfulness Teacher, Life Coach and a qualified EFT tapping practitioner. 

The most common issue I work with in my therapy room daily is ANXIETY and PANIC.

Things I have worked with recently:

- anxiety

- depression

- panic attacks

- stress reduction for fertility

- birth phobia

- birth trauma

- stress and overwhelm

- agoraphobia

- needle phobia 

- flying phobia

- driving phobia

- public speaking confidence

- childhood trauma and abuse

- social anxiety and Selective Mutism

- emotional eating (please note I will only offer the Virtual Gastric Band programme to clients who have also worked through emotional eating habits and patterns with me)

I specialise in birth trauma and phobia (Tokophobia) and all things related to fertility and pregnancy, including miscarriage and loss and have undertaken additional and specialist training in this area. 

I have a private therapy room in Bromley, South East London / Kent and also work over Zoom meaning I can see you wherever you are in the UK. 

Therapy is a powerful process and can offer wonderful tools to help you make incredible changes.

I work with you in an integrative way to help you discover what is going on for you and how you can move on to live a happier, and more authentic life.

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy for fertility, birth phobia (Tokophobia) and birth trauma.
