About me

I am a fully qualified Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist providing life-changing and empowering hypnotherapy and counselling sessions to help people like you become your very best self!

Hypnotherapy is an extremely flexible tool that can help resolve longstanding issues, uncover and assist with historical trauma, and also clear away obstacles to your own self-worth and confidence. Each of us will deal with ongoing issues, problematic behaviors, or traumatic events throughout our lives. I'm here to help you move past difficulties and create the life you want for yourself.

I can help you with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • OCD and Pure O
  • Body dysmorphia
  • Panic attacks
  • Phobias and fears
  • Confidence Issues
  • Performance anxiety
  • Weight Issues
  • Fybromyalgia
  • IBS
  • Hypnobirthing

Hypnotherapy can help you learn about what you’re feeling, physically and mentally, why you might be feeling it, and how to cope or move forward. I have worked with clients at a time of their lives that most people would describe as their most difficult or challenging and have assisted them to move forward and live their best lives.

Clients can work with me face to face, should your location allow, or I am able to work with you via Zoom, Skype or Facetime. Online therapy is a great platform for working together, as it allows you to access the therapy you need, whilst in the comfort of your own surroundings.

Therapy goals will include

  • Anger management, anxiety, assertiveness/ self-confidence, self-esteem.
  • Bereavement and loss/ divorce and separation, emotional issues, panic attacks, parenting skills.
  • Phobias, public speaking and performance, sleep issues.
  • Stop smoking, weight loss, pain management.
  • OCD and PTSD.
  • Addictions such as alcohol, drugs, shopping, sex, food.
  • Menopause and age-related issues.
  • Pregnancy-related issues and birth relaxation.
  • Eating disorders, addictions, sexual and emotional abuse, childhood emotional neglect.
  • Adolescents
  • Pain Management
  • IBS
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Confidence
  • Weight Management
  • Sleep disturbance

Training, qualifications & experience

Helping people make positive changes is my passion.

I love listening and really hearing their story, their highs and lows. I have always been interested in their backstory and what makes a person unique.

My clients value anonymity and confidentiality, being in a safe space to offload which is a truly special experience. I am always both available and present through my professional practice.

I provide a full range of health and wellbeing services for young people and adults from my practice at The Dove Clinic, near Winchester.

For me it’s all about listening, thinking, working together in confidence using hypnotherapy and counselling infused with empathy and compassion,

I understand it takes courage to ask for help and I want to reassure you that I am completely non-judgemental, warm and welcoming.

Counselling led me to hypnotherapy training with the NCH where I gained my Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, after qualifying as a psychotherapist in 2008. I am fully insured and hold a DBS certificate so can work with both adults, teens and children alike.

Testimonials from a few of my clients

''Claire's brilliant approach has helped me with my sleeping problems and years of insomnia. After a few really relaxing sessions and some tips and affirmations to help me in the evenings. I am sleeping a lot better, and each day is so much better and less foggy as a result of a good night's sleep. I really recommend Claire'' Chris D.

''Thank you again for your time over the last few months, I've found it invaluable across all areas of my life, not just the reason I made contact with you which was my IBS and crippling abdominal pain. I finally feel in control of my flare-ups.'' Becky.

'' Thank you, Claire, you did an amazing job in just a couple of sessions. I was able to overcome my daughter's phobia of dogs in a calm and confident way. I could not have believed beforehand that it would be possible for her to meet Bentley, Claire's golden retriever'' Fay S.

'' Claire worked with me to encourage relaxation and de-stress. She was incredibly understanding and took the time to really get beneath the surface, so she was able to deliver a programme tailored specifically to me. I am now able to manage my stress a lot more easily and can bring myself back to focusing on my life rather than being fearful of what might happen. Thank you so much and I can highly recommend'' Vicky H.
