About me

I provide life-changing and empowering cognitive hypnotherapy and counselling sessions that will allow you that much-needed freedom from embedded problems and anxieties thereby allowing you to live and enjoy your life to the full.

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 behaviours, or traumatic events throughout our lives. I'm here to help you move past difficulties and create the life you want for yourself.

Each therapy plan is completely tailored to your individual circumstances and your desired outcomes.

Consultation – discuss the roots of the problem and the results you are hoping to achieve.

Treatment  – after your in-depth consultation, I will prepare your solution based plan which will encompass the following;

therapy sessions
homework follow-ups
out of office support
creation of daily/weekly routines
specific resources for your continued success

I specialise in the following areas;

  • Severe Anxiety
  • Anger Issues
  • Disordered Eating
  • OCD and Pure O
  • Body Dysmorphia
  • Anorexia & Bulimia
  • Panic Attacks
  • Phobias & Agoraphobia 
  • Confidence Issues
  • Emotional Eating
  • Uncontrollable Mood Swings & PMS

Clinical hypnotherapy helps 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 may reveal a crossover of a variety of issues such as;

  • 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.
  • Menopause. 
  • 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 love listening and really hearing their story, their highs and lows. I have always been interested in a persons backstory and what makes a each problem unique to an individual. No two people are the same, nor does one size fit all in my hypnotherapy practice.

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

My clients look to me for solutions because I offer a collaborative, supportive approach, the uplifting method of treatment works well for a wide range of psychological issues, phobias, fears, anxieties and pain related illnesses.

I provide a full range of health and wellbeing treatments 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, relaxed, warm and welcoming so please be confident of a positive outcome. Hypnotherapy coupled with talking therapy is a really effective combination of finding a solution to a myriad of issues.

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.
