About me

Hi my name is Clair.  I am a clinical hypnotherapist with 10 years' experience.

My approach is client-centred so you can get the most out of the sessions and achieve the goals you want - whether that is to overcome anxiety, stress or phobia; manage a health condition; improve your confidence or stop a habit. I have successfully helped many clients over the years with a variety of issues.

Feedback from clients has taught me that the key to personal progress is to help you get stronger and more balanced within yourself. So I will  teach you techniques you can use yourself that will help you now and in the future.

As a registered and accredited practitioner, you can be sure that I practice within a professional framework, complying with GDPR, ethical and practice standards.

I know how busy life can get especially if you have lots of responsibilities to juggle.  I believe it's important to offer flexibility for appointments.  Weekend or evening appointments can be arranged if you are unable to attend within usual clinic hours

What to expect at your session

First and foremost the session is your time and space and so we focus on what you want to achieve.

The first session is a little longer (up to 1.5 hours) so we can spend some time discussing what has brought you here.  This helps me to get a better understanding about you as a whole person.  We'll then agree what goal or goals you want to set so I can work out a personal plan for you.  During the session I will explain about hypnotherapy and how I use it and related techniques. Each subsequent session lasts 1 hour 15 mins.

I am trained in advanced hypnotherapy techniques which means I am able to tailor each session to suit the issue, your personality and preferences in order to get the best results for you.

In some cases, you will find that one session is enough to get the result you want.  For others, you will wish to have follow up or regular sessions.  This depends on you and the goal you want to reach.  We will spend time at the first and any following sessions looking back on your progress and discussing whether and how you want to continue.

I have a client-centred approach and so I will check-in with you at each session to make sure we are focusing on what you need and you are comfortable with how we work together.

What to expect from hypnosis

There are many techniques which can be used whist you are fully awake but relaxed.  These are often a good introduction for people new to hypnosis and they are very effective.

When experiencing hypnosis, each person is unique and will feel different.  Don't worry about how deeply you go.  Most people, and indeed all my clients, have described it as a pleasant experience and one that they feel all the better for.  It is just as effective whether you feel you fell asleep or stayed awake throughout.  One of the lovely things about hypnotherapy is that is it not necessarily always the same each time you experience it, but it will be what you need at that time.

You will always remain in control, even when you may be in the deepest state of hypnosis.  You can let me know if you want to stop or if you want to let me know something.  Just like when you are day dreaming or just dropping off to sleep, you can wake up and be fully alert any time you like.

What type of issues have you helped with?

As a practising hypnotherapist I have found hypnotherapy to be very effective for a huge range of issues, particularly those which are caused or exacerbated by stress and anxiety eg sleep disorders, panic attacks, phobias, addictions (food, smoking, gambling), weight and pain management, bad habits (nail biting), fear of flying, driving test and exam anxiety, public speaking, low self esteem or confidence, relationship issues.

There are conditions which many health professionals now recognise hypnotherapy as an effective treatment for.  For example, NHS recommend hypnotherapy as a treatment for IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the Institute of Clinical Hypnosis, London in 2010.

I hold Diplomas in Clinical Hypnotherapy (DCH) and Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy (DHP).

My extensive training includes NLP (neuro linguistic programming), coaching and counselling skills. I use a blend of techniques that are tailored to each individual client's needs.

I'm experienced in working with adults, children and young people.

I am registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register and Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council and am an approved therapist for Anxiety UK.

I hold an enhanced DBS check.
