Dawn Gennings - DipHyp, CNHC Registered, Anxiety UK Approved Therapist
I am a friendly and approachable Hypnotherapist based in Walderslade Woods, Chatham, Kent. I am fully qualified and able to help you improve any area of your life that may be causing you worry or stress. People often believe that their problems are unique and can’t be solved. This is not the case at all. People visit me for a number of reasons ranging from stress and anxiety to fear of childbirth. Although I work with many different issues I specialise in treating anxiety disorders, panic attacks, stress, phobia's, addictions and OCD's. I also have a special interest in hypno-birthing and treating infertility in a natural and stress free way. I am also qualified to offer the virtual gastric band procedure for clients wishing to lose weight. This special weight loss programme convinces the mind that a gastric band has been fitted. Research shows that this virtual procedure has an 80% success rate compared to the surgical NHS procedure which has a 70% success rate. Additional benefits include no surgical incision, therefore no recovery time, no complications and no side effects. Please contact me for further information.
I am very much client focused and I understand that choosing the right therapist can be quite a daunting experience. This is why I offer a free 20 minute consultation for you to ask any questions and discuss any concerns you may have. This consultation can take place via e-mail, over the telephone or in person. Hawthorns Hypnotherapy is a very welcoming and relaxing place to be and you will be put at ease from the moment you arrive. The majority of my work is carried out from my therapy room, however, I do carry out home visits for people who would prefer to be treated in their own homes.
Hypnotherapy is available on an individual basis or in group sessions. Group sessions can take place at my therapy centre, at a private residence or at a business location. Please contact me for further information. Please note that if you would like to make an individual appointment you are welcome to bring somebody along with you.
Many people find it hard to find the time to attend in person. With this in mind I have developed a range of self help audio hypnotic packages that have been designed to help you overcome many common issues in the comfort of your own home. These are available as downloads and can be accessed almost immediately. Please see our website for further details and to listen to samples of each one.
I am registered with the CNHC and am a member of The Hypnotherapy Association.
