About me

As a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I find the most important aspect of therapy is rapport and trust. To establish whether you feel comfortable working with me, I offer a free 15 minute initial Telephone call. 

I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP Practioner with additional training in a range of issues; 


-Anxiety, panic attacks and depression, 

-Obsessive-compulsive disorder

-Health-related concerns 

-Childbirth and IVF 

-Phobias and fears 

I also work with, the effects of abuse, gaslighting, trauma and emotional distress.

Hypnotherapy can eliminate these debilitating issues from your life, allowing you to create a positive future for yourself, all you need is the willingness to change.

Client reviews:

“I have been suffering from extreme anxiety for the last year that has interfered with my home and work life. I have also gained a lot of weight due to emotional eating. A friend of mine has used hypnotherapy for depression and convinced me to give it a go, so I found Claire on the hypnotherapy directory.

I was extremely nervous but Claire put me at ease the whole time and explained everything, I felt in safe hands from the start of the treatment.

I had 5 sessions during a 4 week period and, I can not believe the difference it has made,

I am a completely different person. My sleep, eating habits, overthinking, concentration and confidence have all improved and I’m just not anxious about silly things anymore.

Thank you Claire I am so grateful for your help and will recommend you to anyone I think could benefit from hypnotherapy.”

“Really Recommend Claire

I have had very bad panic attacks and chest pressure because of anxiety for the past 1-2 months, especially because of the COVID situation. Claire is very friendly and such an expert on what she does that she went deeper into my fears to ensure that I saw immediate improvement, which I did. From the very first session, I haven't had any other panic attacks, my sleep improved a lot and my anxiety level reduced. By the last session, I felt completely free of anxiety, happy and myself again. I tried everything, mental analysis exercises that I had from the psychologist therapy I did a few years ago, supplements (valerian root, melatonin,...), I was doing meditation and yoga and even it helped a bit, it didn't make it go. In work stress times, it was even worse. Claire's online sessions were the only thing that made the difference. She even helped me with other traumas. really recommend her.”

Thank you Claire I am so grateful for your help and will recommend you to anyone I think could benefit from hypnotherapy.”

Member organisations


Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.


The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
