About me

My name is Dominique, aka The Mind Coach at TMC Therapy Solutions. I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist & Counsellor with 14 yrs experience,  based near Dorchester, Dorset, highly experienced and specialise in working with clients to help relieve anxiety, depression and emotional pain and trauma.  This includes addictions, alcohol, drugs and food. I also work with chronic physical pain management and more often than not complete pain removal. Whilst I specialise in working with emotional issues and physical pain, I also work with other conditions successfully. I have helped hundreds of clients to make a positive long-lasting change in their lives using a combination of Counselling /Psychotherapy,  Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Line Therapy (TLT™) and Hypnotherapy

Professionally Certified Master Hypnotist, Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner, NLP Coach & Practitioner of Time Line Therapy™ ( TLT) and additionally Licensed Practitioner of OldPain2Go, Certificate in Counselling,  ICBCH certified in Autogenic Training. My Private Practice is based in the beautiful County of Dorset. (I also offer online sessions for people who live further afield)

My passion is quite simply helping people achieve their outcome, whether that means getting rid of an unwanted behaviour or habit, or self-limiting beliefs that are holding you back in life or working through Trauma and PTSD / C- PTSD .

By combining therapies, I get fast results that last, often in just 2 - 3 sessions, depending on the issue and the person.

Physical pain removal or reduction is normally just one session, occasionally two using OldPain2Go.

When working with a client, I Guarantee they get 100% commitment from me.
I offer an initial consultation either on the phone or face to face so that we can meet, discuss what it is you would like to change and then you can decide if you would like to work with me.

As well as Hypnotherapy I also offer Personal Coaching Sessions and Professional Coaching.

I treat the whole person with an integrated approach which achieves the best results.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Many people are finding that they have developed unwanted habits over the last year through lock down and the fear around the pandemic.

These habits include alcohol use, eating too much as well as emotional issues causing anxiety and depression.

These problems and habits are best dealt with swiftly and can be usually within 3 -4 sessions.

I went to Dominique a sceptic and left totally converted!! She helped me overcome years of issues in a very short space of time, things that years of medication and traditional counselling haven't touched. I'm doing and achieving things I'd never thought possible so I can safely say, if you're considering it, do it. You won't regret it.

I came to Dominique with the weight of the world on my shoulders, feeling angry and guilty for the things I had done in my past. I was pretty much at rock bottom with how I felt about myself and had no self-esteem.
3 weeks later, I feel like a completely different person, I have learned to let go of all my guilt/anger and throw it away as it’s meaningless. It’s hard to explain just how good I feel about myself now, I’m so much happier and have a positive outlook on life.
This has definitely been one of the best decisions/experiences of my life.
For anyone like me who at first was a non-believer, I can only say try it – it may change your life, it did mine!

I have had my struggles with depression and issues for the last few years. I have had constant visits to the NHS professionals and gotten nowhere.
A few weeks ago whilst in my usual down state, I happened upon a page by TMC Hypnotherapy, Hypnosis & Coaching.I have been visiting once a week for the last month or so and I am astounded at the changes in myself.
I have had all the pain from past issues removed, my confidence is sky high.
I am learning how to love myself and how to look after myself.
I am in fact, at last, able to be myself, I am happy, confident and looking forward to a very bright future!
Thank you Dominique, for your endless support in helping me to make these changes…..sometimes there are not adequate words to say how much I appreciate something and this is one of those occasions.

I had tried ‘talking therapy’ and it just didn’t help me to overcome my issues, I just got tired of going over them! A friend mentioned TMC Hypnotherapy, so I looked it up, a little sceptical. Well, I can tell you, you will be in safe hands with Dominique. She made me feel so comfortable as soon as we met and during the course of my sessions, I trusted her professionalism and genuine care. The processes we went through have changed me for the better – I am more confident and in control of my life now, which enables me to enjoy each day with a very different perspective. I can happily recommend TMC Hypnotherapy.
