Diane Woolrich Dip. Cognitive Behavioual Hypnotherapy Ma Coun MBACP, CHC, AGHR.
I am Diane Woolrich and I empower people just like you to improve the quality of your life by using up-to-date evidence based techniques.
I am an experienced therapist with a wealth of skills and knowlege, having previously worked for a mental health charity helping people with a wide range of emotional difficulties. I take an holistic approach which means I won't be treating the issue, I will be treating the root causes of your difficulty using scientifically proven stratergies to help you manage your existing problems. Changing the way you think and behave. And after therapy clients have felt calmer, confident and in control.
Hypnotherapy can help improve almost any aspect of your life, whether you're suffering from a health issue or want to break a self-destructive habits, such as smoking or addictive behaviours. Or maybe you would like to improve your confidence. It is useful in the treatment of General Anxiety, Phobias, Social Anxiety, Insomia and Pain Managment; furthermore, the use of Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy has been recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) to treat Irrirtable Bowel Syndrome.
My focus is on you and the best outcome for you; I give you the opportunity to speak in a safe confidential environment about any issues you are facing. I work with adults 18 years and above. I promise that no matter who you are, what you have been through you will be treated with the strictest of confidence, respect and compassion. All enquires are without obligation.
I trained with the London College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy where I gained a Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy. I am an Accredited Member of The General Hypnotherapy Register, a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and a member of the Complimentary & Natural Healthcare Council. I work within their code of conduct and adhere to their ethical framework.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.
Hypnotherapy is £65.00 per hr
In between sessions, I will give you a hypnotherapy recording to listen to, which means you don't have to wait until next week to experience relaxation and you can continue to make progress. You can listen at any time that you wish, and the recording will reinforce the work that we do together, helping you to move forward
I also deliver Stress Management and Resilience Building workshops in Nantwich.
