Positive Vibes Hypnotherapy
9 Dundee Drive
I am a fully qualified Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist based in Downend, Bristol. I trained at the very prestigious Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training school (CPHT), an accredited centre of excellence in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy. I was lucky enough to have David Newton as my Senior lecturer who is one of the most experienced Hypnotherapists in the country today and he also founded the Clifton Practice.
As someone who has struggled with anxiety in the past I am extremely passionate about helping others to reach their full potential in life. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is all about breaking negative and unhealthy habits; I can help you to become much more positive and focus on a brighter future. Hypnotherapy combines Hypnosis with Solution Focused Brief Therapy. This type of therapy uses the positive aspects of CBT and NLP also. As the name suggests, it's solution focused so we focus on the solution and don't dwell on the past. We look at achieving your goals and focus on how we can get you there. Clients always leave feeling energised, relaxed and happy!
Hypnotherapy can help with so many things that include;
- Low self-esteem
- Lack of confidence
- Specific Fears/Phobias
- Exam Nerves
- Weight management
- Public Speaking
- Panic attacks
- Chronic Pain
- Fertility problems
- Anti Smoking (1 double session, 90-120 mins)

Taking the first step to getting help with anxiety or depression can always feel a little daunting. I'm here to answer any questions that you may have, with no judgement.
Clients start to benefit from Hypnotherapy as soon as they have attended the Initial Consultation. By simply understanding how the brain works and how we can move forward can make a profound difference. People leave my therapy room looking so much taller than they did when they came in. Everyone that comes along for the Initial Consultation gets my relaxation recording to listen to and there is no obligation if you decide that Hypnotherapy is not for you.
I offer weekend and evenings appointments
