Colleen Rawlings PGCert., D.Hyp C.H., CNHC (reg.)
My name is Colleen and I'm a Certified Hypnotherapist based in Rochester, Kent.
Are you feeling nervous or anxious about stepping back into the world and facing reality?
I am currently seeing a lot of women experiencing anything from mild apprehension to major anxiety about:
1) Integrating back into the workplace.
2) Going back to the old status quo, the one that had you busy and constantly tired!
3) Unrelenting pressure or stress associated with a major change in life.
Clients are telling me that they're currently experiencing stress about everything going back to normal, even future lockdowns and the impact it could have on their mental health and wellbeing. They tell me they just don't feel in control anymore. The pressure is often felt by others close by and this often causes a breakdown in communication.
Hypnotherapy gives you ultimate relaxation and that feel-good factor!
Within our sessions, you can develop new perspectives. You will feel equipped to step back into the workplace with confidence and that anxiety can be replaced with motivation, possibly even 'I can't wait to get back into everything!'
Overall, you will find that seam of confidence. We know it's there already, but it may be hidden beneath the 'busyness'. Together we'll turn that into a resource that will have you looking into the future with a strong sense of purpose.
Benefits of hypnosis online
Hypnotherapy is just as effective online as in-person. It doesn’t matter if you are listening to the hypnotist in the same room or listening remotely. You close your eyes and listen to a set of instructions just as you were in my therapy room. It really doesn't matter whether we're in the same room or not because the change doesn't happen in that room. The change occurs in your head.
Gone are the days of having to sit in heavy traffic to get to me. Working remotely means we’re going to be connecting online through video conference platforms such as Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp or Facetime and we can affect the changes in your environment where you want to notice those results and do the hypnotic change work with you in your environment.
Doing this work in your environment is so beneficial and you're going to notice those changes happening right where you are. I'm working remotely with clients in Singapore, USA, Canada, Sweden, Turkey and the UK - so wherever you are in the world we can work together to make the changes happen!
Here is an example – recently, a client in Singapore contacted me so we worked together remotely on her mindset, anxiety about the future and lack of confidence in her abilities to reinvigorate her failing business. She went away with a new perspective and her mindset had changed. She felt empowered and went on to do great things in her life.
She recorded an audio testimonial exclaiming how special the hypnotherapy sessions had been.
She told me that the work we did had made such an impact on her mindset and motivation that she received over a thousand responses on her recent social media advert! She told me that she taken inspired action and this had made a phenomenal difference in her work.
She rejoiced at the fact that her mindset had changed from not do-ing to doing and is now taking positive action! She wrote to thank me for helping her shift her focus on the things that matter most in her business life.
She's become far more productive since we worked together and now her once-struggling business is now growing exponentially and she's loving her newfound feeling and productivity. She has since recommended me to her friends and family who live in different countries.
You too can experience your own breakthrough and I'd be happy to hear from you and be part of your new mindset journey. If anxiety, fear or lack of confidence is holding you back, why wait any longer? Take inspired action now!
When did YOU last feel calm and relaxed and connect with your inner peace?
Don't just take my word for it. Read what some of my clients think:
"Colleen is the real deal! Colleen's work is very special, she truly cares for your success and helping you embark on a positive journey and I could not ask for a better or more professional hypnotherapist. I would highly recommend Colleen and hypnotherapy as it can really change your life. It has certainly changed mine. " M.R. Kent.
"Colleen Rawlings, I can't thank you or recommend you enough.
Three consultations on Skype and you have successfully cured my anxiety attacks and feeling confident and at ease. Now, you've helped me ditch a lifelong habit of biting my nails. It’s transformed my life. I now enjoy painting my nails and they look fab!
Let’s make it a hat trick and cure my mouse phobia. Looking forward to Thursday’s session."

British Society of Clinical Hypnosis
The British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) is a national professional body whose aim is to promote and assure high standards in the practice of hypnotherapy.
There are various types of membership of BSCH, including associate members, full members, diplomats and fellows.

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

My personal experience
My journey to, and passion for hypnotherapy, is rooted in my own personal experience.
A real turning point in my life happened after a personal tragedy in 1991 that had rocked my world. I look back at how I used to react when crippling worry, real fear and extreme anxiety affected every aspect of my life. I recall having endless tears while coping with long-term distress. It felt like a thick fog had come over me accompanied by that knotted feeling in the pit of my stomach. I felt totally stuck for all those years.
Years later in 2012, a friend told me about a great hypnotherapist who had helped her cope with anxious thoughts and feelings. I wanted to heal too so I chose a hypnotherapist who understood my personal experience, and the rest is history. I gained many benefits from the sessions and I felt empowered, transformed, reinvigorated - it felt like a miracle. For once in my life, I felt in control. It was amazing how my life started to improve and then happiness, health and success followed.
Eager to help others I trained in hypnotherapy myself and I'm living proof - Hypnotherapy changed my life!
You will be amazed at the transformation you could make in just a few sessions too.
