Life really CAN have a back-up plan!
As a professional, clinical hypnotherapist, I can help you to quit smoking/vaping, lose weight,(via my unique x3 session, personalised programme or the world-famous, Hypno-Band Gastric Band hypnotherapy), fight phobias, attack anxiety/panic attacks, manage menopausal flushes, attack those addictions (sugar, alcohol abuse, caffeine, drugs; cocaine, etc) & so much more.
If you are also intrigued by Past Life Regression, then I conduct this therapy too.
I combine hypnotherapy, CBT, REBT, NLP & professional coaching wherever is best fit.
I'm a highly qualified & extremely experienced, UK & international hypnotherapist, coach & NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) practitioner & I get great results! (See testimonials on website & Facebook, business page).
I also combine Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy & coaching at no extra charge, as required.
I have studied a wide range of academic and therapeutic subjects over many years. Combined with my voluntary work for Family Focus (working with children and families who experienced practical and emotional difficulties), I feel I have benefitted from the experiences & have gained extensive, supportive, communicative skills & strategies.
Being a qualified & very experienced, further education lecturer & youth worker in charge, I am extremely familiar and comfortable communicating and understanding issues/difficulties that young people & adults face. (Including looked- after children & young people from other communities).
Teaching classes of disaffected learners, also provided me with an insight into behaviours & causes, & helped further my understanding of the academic/personal/social difficulties & anxieties that Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Autism, ADHD, etc., can cause. I believe that this experience is one of the main reasons that my work with children and young people is so successful. I therefore offer a dynamic, specialised programme that is dedicated to building confidence & self-esteem & provides coping strategies for managing anxiety & lack of confidence & self esteem.
The success rate for my anxiety & confidence-building programme is soaring, along with getting continuing, superb results for weight loss and stopping smoking.
I have mentored & coached new lecturers and have worked closely with universities to ensure that future teachers are the best that they can possibly be. I've also had strong, educational links with the Probation Service, as well as coaching & teaching prison officers to coach & teach within their establishments.
I provide mentoring & coaching for new hypnotherapists & will be very soon using my lecturing qualifications to teach hypnotherapy in the UK.
Clinical hypnotherapy has helped me and countless others to make really significant, positive life changes that have had tremendous, positive impacts. As we all know too well; life isn't always easy and anything that helps us de-stress, deal with anxiety, or alter negative states/thoughts/behaviours can only enhance our lives.
Practicing in the UK and now worldwide, provides me with opportunities to enable others to access this effective, safe and natural therapy, so that they really can progress and move on with their lives.

Weight Loss:"Saw Debbie today for my third session for her weight loss programme and am glad to report that I lost another 2lbs this week.That's 15lbs in four weeks! Anyone thinking of trying hypnotherapy, don't worry, it's so relaxing and only gives you positive thoughts. Thanks Debbie, for all your help. You are fab!" Mandy W. West Mids.
Smoking Cessation: "I just want to say a huge thank you to Debbie for helping me to quit smoking on the 9th of Jan this year after one session. It has been 15 weeks now and I have never felt better or so proud of myself. Hypnotherapy really worked for me and I can safely say that I won't smoke again. I am so over it that I have just recently decided to spend the money I was spending each month on cigarettes and buy myself a new car so that's what I did! I can also honestly say hand on heart that with Debbies help I did it "I am a none smoker" If you want to stop smoking this is the best way to do in my opinion. Debbie is such a lovely lady and always has time to chat or answer messages. Thanks Debbie." Emma R. Staffs.
Weight Loss: "I had my first session of three on Friday to help with weight loss. I feel I'm cured already, immediately after the session I was able to avoid things that usually tempt me to distraction!!! I feel really calm and at ease about healthy eating now, it is like a switch has been flicked in my brain. Wonderful." Liz O. Staffs.
Phobia: "I would just like to say how much Debbie has changed my life! I struggled everyday and now I feel like a new person. She really listened to my issue and after just X 1 session, my issue has disappeared! I am so, so happy & looking forward to getting on with my new life with 0 phobias!" Kirsty E. Staffs.
Weight Loss: "Just over 4 weeks ago I had my 1st session with Debbie for weight loss. In those 4 weeks I have lost a massive stone!!! I have tried all the diets going and had lost a stone but was just losing interest in dieting yet again and was at the point where I usually start eating again and gain even more pounds. After the 1st session, it completely changed the way I thought about food. I don't feel like I'm dieting at all. I don't crave 'bad ' foods at all. I'm eating healthy foods!! After all my years of yo yo dieting I can't believe how different I'm thinking. I feel much more positive and here's to the next stone loss......Thank u xx " Joanne D.Staffs.
Past Life Regression: "It all started when I saw Debbie advertise the special offer for past life regression ... I immediately contacted her as I have been very interested in regression since the 1970's. On Thursday 24th March, I had THE most wonderful appointment with Debbie ! For anyone that's tempted but undecided, I can only urge you to give it a go, it was so interesting ... since Thursday I have researched the information from the previous life I talked about with Debbie, and can only say that if , as some people think, you are using your imagination when recalling a previous life, then I must have been exceptional as there are far too many documented facts that match my information with my session with Debbie for it to be sheer coincidence ... my previous life was rather unusual and much earlier in time than I would have imagined. I have never visited the area of my previous life, or read books/seen films or done any kind of research previous to this experience. I would definitely recommend visiting Debbie for this regression, it was a wonderful experience." Elaine M. Staffs.
Needle Phobia: "So quite often people write 'reviews' and actually it's a business owners friend or relative and its just words! Two years ago I was so phobic of all things medical it was ruining my life. The anxiety of medical or dental appointments was crippling. Last year I visite Debbie to beg for her help . After 6 sessions I am able to have Botox for migraines. Ive had dental implants and several procedures after a close brush with cervical cancer. Today I asked a friend to video me really to show calm I am. Three years ago I couldn't sit in a doctors receptionist without crying ! Thank you Debbie , you have changed my life!" Steph D. Stone.
Anxiety/Lack of Confidence: 'Debbie has helped to give me back a part of myself which was lost long ago. Having spent the past few years of my life battling an eating disorder I was stripped of my self-confidence and any recognition of my self-worth. I'd been through multiple other therapies, none of which provided the breakthrough I so desperately needed. Hypnosis 4 Progress was different. Debbie is such a kind-hearted, lovely person and is truly great at what she does. At every session I was made to feel welcome, safe and cared for and each session was directly focused and planned individually. Through hypnotherapy and learning NLP techniques, Debbie has helped restore my self-confidence and provide me with the tools to overcome the barriers which have been holding me back all these years. Thank you so much Debbie!' Anon' Cannock, Staffs.
Stopping Smoking: Having smoked for 48 years, I was very sceptical about going to see Debbie at Hypnosis 4 Progess, so I thought, OK, if it works happy days, if it doesn't do what, having tried to stop smoking for years and failing. So in for a penny, in for a pound.
To my amazement I went, following all the instruction Debbie had sent me. Got rid of all my fags etc. Then on the day, my appointment was at 11.00am, not really expecting to go without one till that point. 2 hrs later, I came out thinking has it worked.
Well to be honest, it's been 3 weeks now and still not 1 fag.
Over the moon. If you want to check it out to be true, feel free to contact me and I'll be totally honest about my experience. Nick ( my no if you do want to contact me 07968
Weight Loss: Debbie has helped me to lose a stone in 2 weeks! She thoroughly discusses what it is you aim to do and without even realising it you have changed your life! She is very welcoming and made me feel at ease even when I was nervous. Can't wait for the rest of my weight loss journey. Victoria. Staffs.
