Elaine Collins Dip Hyp CS, MHS, CHBP, CHFP, CPNP
Hello. My name’s Elaine and I’m a professional hypnotherapist. I’ve been supporting people to make positive changes in their lives since I qualified in 2014.
I discovered hypnotherapy by chance around 10 years ago when I was struggling with stress and anxiety. The positive impact of those sessions has stayed with me to this day – they even inspired me to train and become a hypnotherapist!
I chose the name Aurora, meaning dawn, as the name for my practice as hypnotherapy can mean a fresh new start for anyone who wants to make a positive change in their lives. My practice is warm, caring and supportive and I’d love to help you make the changes that are right for you.
Hypnotherapy is a completely natural and deeply relaxing therapy. It uses techniques that are simple but effective, can be easily built into everyday life and really make a difference to your mental and physical well-being.
I can help you with:
Anxiety: Hypnotherapy can help your unconscious mind to calm down and find new ways of coping with situations that cause you anxiety and panic.
Stress: Session are deeply calming as your body becomes physically relaxed and your mind takes a break from worry. Learn how to identify new ways of responding to the stress in your life and build relaxation into your day.
Weight-loss: By changing your thoughts and behaviour around eating you can adopt a healthy lifestyle - one that keeps you slimmer and fitter long term. The Hypno-Band system could help you if you have a lot of weight to lose.
Fertility: Hypnotherapy is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress which can aid natural conception and support you through fertility treatment. It can also help to restore confidence in yourself and your body.
Childbirth: Learn how to use self-hypnosis, relaxation, visualisation and breathing methods so that you enter labour feeling calm, confident and in control.
Early Parenthood: I can support you while you adjust to your new lives as mum and dad.
I offer sessions face to face and on-line.
You can find out more about hypnotherapy and what I offer, as well as courses and workshops, on my website. You can also sign up to my wellbeing newsletter to receive information, ideas and support by e-mail.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or you'd like a chat about how I can help you. I look forward to working with you to make the positive changes you want in your life.

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
Hypnotherapy is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress and increase feelings of calmness and relaxation which can aid natural conception. it can also help to restore confidence in yourself and your body.
Post Natal support
Helping you to adjust to your new lives as mum or dad. Hypnotherapy can help you to become ‘good enough’ parents, rather than striving for perfection. I can assist you to resist the temptation to criticise what you do and what what don’t do, to relax into your new role as a parent, whilst also keeping the juggling balls in the air of your individual needs, your needs as a couple as well as the needs of your new baby.
Initial Consultation: £20
Hypnotherapy Session: £40
I can take payment by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
The first step is an initial consultation where we can talk in confidence about how I can help you. It's also chance for you to ask any questions you may have. This session also includes a relaxation recording to take away.
All sessions are tailored to meet your individual needs and last up to 1 hour. The number of hypnotherapy sessions needed varies from person to person depending on your needs and the goal you'd like to achieve.
Sessions take place in a private, comfortable environment in my home practice where you can feel relaxed and confident. I also have a base at the Adlerian Society in Narberth and The Ark in Haverfordwest.
If you're unable to travel to my clinics I also offer hypnotherapy sessions online so you can relax in the comfort of your own home.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or you'd like a chat about how I can help. I'm really looking forward to working with you.
"After only a few sessions I felt much less anxious and had more confidence. Elaine gave me a great technique to instantly relax me when I felt under pressure - and it really works". ER
"If you are stressed, anxious or beginning to feel that you're not coping with things, I cannot recommend Elaine too highly". AH
"Elaine addressed my deep-seated reasons for emotional eating. Hypnosis has changed my relationship with food so I feel positive and in control. The weight has come off slowly but surely, and so far I've lost two stones. This has been totally life-changing for me". H.D
