About me

Hello I am Christine an accomplished clinical hypnotherapist and psychotherapist helping you to retrain your brain, achieve your goals, reach your full potential and create the future you want.  

My passion is for the study of the human brain and its potential is at the heart of my interests which are centred on how the human brain operates and how to make the best of life and take control.  Creating a practice of excellence and expertise for the past ten years enabling clients to be how they want to be.  

                            “Embrace life and live to your fullest potential”

How I can help you?

New discoveries in neuroscience are constantly evolving and these new discoveries are woven seamlessly into each therapeutic experience.  Creating and innovating your tailored experience to make change happen.  

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses the clinically proven techniques of Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming and combines them with trance to make important positive changes within a short period of time.  Resolving unwelcome habits and thought patterns at a subconscious level.  Treatments are confidential and personalised to each client as an individual and therapy is designed to your preferences, your personality and your individual needs.

                                 “Never let anxiety control you, take back control”

Neuroscience research is revealing the benefits of hypnosis and understands that while in trance our brains have access to the unconscious mind allowing thoughts, feelings, images, sensations and behaviour to become highlighted.  Trance allows access to certain brain waves associated with creativity, when in a hypnotic trance we are able to combine lateral and previously unconnected associations to forge new ideas.

Conditions I help with

I help clients to taking back control in many areas such as stress, anxiety, panic attacks, hypervigilance, confidence, self-esteem, assertiveness, public speaking, relationships, empowerment, depression, sports/arts performance, compulsions, insomnia, trichotillomania, OCD, trauma/PTSD, pain, tinnitus, fibromyalgia, perfectionism, addictions (smoking, drinking, food addiction, sugar addiction, coca cola, red bull, gaming, technology, shopping, gambling), weight loss, disordered eating, phobias (social places, agoraphobia, flying, travelling, dentists, medical procedures, small spaces, spiders, wasps, bees, dogs, cats, heights, bridges, needle phobia, emetophobia) and much more………………

Today Hypnotherapy is being utilised more than any other complementary therapy up to date research has evidenced this.  Clients are harnessing hypnotherapy to help with self-healing and even performing extraordinary feats of will power to achieve goals.

Hypnosis is a natural, safe and gentle way to treat many conditions such as emotional, nervous and psychological problems.  It’s also a powerful tool for motivation and performing to your best potential either in sports, the arts, business or personal performance.  Neuroscience research tell us that by rehearsing and visualizing your goals performance is improved, just as much as physically performing.

There’s a lot of myths regarding hypnosis, a hypnotherapist can’t take control of your mind and while in trance you retain full control at all times including the ability to accept or reject a suggestion.  When in trance you are fully aware of your surroundings, and you can’t be made to do anything that you would not consciously do.  To make change happen you need to want to change and be willing to undertake a course of sessions and working together we can bring about positive changes. 


I am an accomplished hypnotherapist and psychotherapist with 10yrs of full-time experience and founded The Beardwood Practice in 2013.  Qualified in Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy (DHP), the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) and Medical Hypnotherapy working within Hospitals and Doctors surgeries.  Christine continues to keep up to date with the latest developments in the field of hypnotherapy, psychology, psychoneuroimmunology and neuroscience.

My clients come from all walks of life with a wide variety of conditions, and some come as a result of doctors referrals.  I have been established for 10yrs working with clients from Lincolnshire, Bourne, Stamford, Oakham, Peterborough, Spalding, Boston, Grantham, Wisbech, Holbeach, Market Deeping, Sleaford, Skegness, Louth and Lincoln as well as clients from further away in London, Nottinghamshire, Rutland, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire.

Further information

How to quit smoking for a healthier you

Hypnotherapy has the reputation for being the best way to quit smoking available, this is acknowledged by the British Medical Association. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help someone who is determined to quit smoking for good. Even a small habit of smoking a few cigarettes a day can have a big effect on both finances and health. Smoking really is a dying habit and The Beardwood Practice’s one-off session, which lasts a couple of hours, can really cement permanent change whereby, with willpower, the client can leave The Beardwood Practice and simply not smoke again.

                   FACE  to FACE session in my practice or via ZOOM

Quitting smoking by working with a fully qualified and insured Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner is the easy way to stop smoking as we work with a client to fully explain the psychology behind the habit and how we can stop smoking for good.

The stop smoking hypnotherapy session works with the practitioner explaining why the brain fools us into thinking it is acceptable to smoke. The hypnosis part of the stop smoking treatment is a key stage to cementing the change during which the client experiences around 45 minutes of hypnosis. During the hypnosis process the subconscious mind effectively “rewires” itself to help the person’s willpower and commitment to smoking cessation.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also be used to help to take control over other aspects of our lives, ranging from stress management through to eating and even improving our confidence.

It’s a great time to sit down with a Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner to see how you can get the best out of your life and what steps you can take, over a period of time, to realise your full potential.
