Hello, I'm Claire, a clinical hypnotherapist. I work with people who want to take back control in their lives and move on, free from anxiety, stress or phobias by giving them the tools and motivation they need in order to achieve their goals, dreams, and full potential.
Far from its image as stage entertainment, modern clinical hypnotherapy uses powerful, evidence-based techniques, proven by research in the fields of neuroscience and psychology to support you in becoming the very best version of YOU.
Hypnotherapy with me retrains your brain, helping you to understand how it can work better for you to improve your confidence, performance and self esteem, professionally and personally.
I trained with the prestigious Clifton Practice to gain my Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy & also hold the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma, awarded by NCFE.
I am a member of the following -
Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH)
The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH)
Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) & General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC)
I am an Associate of Inspired to Change, the nation's leading provider of solution-focused hypnotherapy, sharing the same culture, ethos and standards, but each offering our own unique style and specialisms.
As a fully qualified, accredited and practising pharmacist, registered with both the profession's governing bodies (General Pharmaceutical Council and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society) I believe I am uniquely placed to understand the interplay between medicine and psychotherapy and I use my knowledge to work with children, young people and adults in the following areas:
- Stress management & reduction
- Panic attacks
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Physical and Mental Wellbeing
- Low Confidence & Self Esteem
- Habit BreakingPhobias and Fears
- Exam/Driving Test nerves
- Sports Performance
- Hypnotherapy for Birthing
Hypnotherapy can help a wide range of issues, so please get in touch if you would like help with something else.
