About me

My name is Dawn O'Donoghue and I have Consulting Rooms in the Ellesmere Centre of Psychotherapy in Hull.  The Centre is easy to find, has toilet facilities and a lift for those who may need assistance. My rooms are  both calm and welcoming.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.
