About me

I provide life-changing and clinical hypnotherapy that will allow you that much-needed freedom from embedded problems and anxieties from the past, thereby allowing you to live and enjoy your life to the full. My clients would describe me as hugely empathetic and understanding in finding the right solution, tailored to your life, your needs. Exploring change, reframing habits that you might think you simply can’t shake, that perhaps you have lived with for too many years. Together, with the permission of your powerful subconscious mind, we can make huge life shifts and changes. 

One to one hypnotherapy appointments are tailored to deal with individual issues to suit each clients requirements.

Most people have 2-3 sessions although some have a few more. I try to keep it to a minimum, teaching you how to maintain the positive changes you will have successfully made, overcoming the problems, known or unknown, which have been holding you back so you can finally live your life to the full.

Hypnotherapy is an extremely effective 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 try to deal with ongoing issues, problematic behaviours, or traumatic events throughout our lives. I'm here to help you move past difficulties and create the life you want for yourself.

The therapy plan is completely tailored to you - your individual needs, circumstances and desired outcome and goal.

I specialise in the following areas;

  • Severe Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Depression 
  • Anger Issues
  • Disordered Eating
  • Obsessions 
  • Body Dysmorphia
  • Panic Attacks
  • Phobias and Fears
  • Confidence Issues
  • Emotional Eating
  • Addiction and Habits

Hypnotherapy may well reveal a crossover - the problem is never just the problem.

  • Anger management, anxiety, assertiveness/self-confidence, self-esteem.
  • Severe anxiety.
  • Bereavement and loss/ divorce and separation, emotional issues, panic attacks, parenting skills.
  • Phobias and fear.
  • Stress.
  • OCD and PTSD.
  • Addictions such as alcohol, drugs, shopping, sex, food, gambling.
  • Eating disorders, sexual and emotional abuse, childhood emotional neglect.
  • Adolescent anxiety.
  • Pain.
  • Childhood trauma.
  • Confidence.
  • Weight.
  • Sleep disturbance.

Training, qualifications & experience

Helping clients make positive changes to their life is my absolute passion. I provide effective treatment from my practice at The Yard, Bishops Waltham.

For me it’s all about listening, thinking, working together in confidence using hypnotherapy  infused with empathy and compassion. I have a very broad spectrum of experience meaning my clients range from 8 to 88 years old.

Counselling and psychotherapy led me into solution based 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 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.
