About me

I am an experienced Cognitive Hypnotherapist, Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and personal success coach based in central Reading and Wokingham. I'm passionate about helping people overcome anxiety, fears and unwanted behaviours in their life so that they can be free to live the way they want.

A flexible and empowering approach

I also have extensive training in the most up to date therapy techniques so I can help my clients achieve their goals in the fastest time for them.

As part of empowering you, I teach a wide number of relaxation and self-help tools so that you gain a practical toolkit for emotional resilience and managing stress. These tools include breathing techniques, mindfulness, self-hypnosis and relationship management techniques.

        • Clare Burgess Cognitive Hypnotherapy Reading


        Therapy is an investment in you and your future. Clients are often surprised that in just a few sessions they are able to feel better and to overcome problems which they might have lived with for many years.

        Packages available and I ask most clients to commit to 3 sessions so we can work through a personalised treatment plan. Certain issues might require only one session with others needing a more extended programme. Sessions are £95 to £150 depending on requirements and session type.

        Hypnobirthing packages are available for different budget levels. Contact me for details.
