Elizabeth Rawson-Jones Dip. Hypnotherapy, NCHP, BPS, MAPsych.
I am a private practitioner of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy qualified at the National College of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy to the Advanced Diploma level. I have 25 years' experience helping with unwanted habits, phobias, social difficulties, anxiety, stress and a variety of other physical and psychological issues. Hypnotherapy is a creative tool for change which will also help you learn to relax, get to know yourself and help make only the changes that you want.
I am trained in a variety of approaches and often my treatment incorporates Psychotherapy, Cognitive-Behavioural and Counselling techniques. I work with individuals, both young and old, adults and young people
Sessions last 50 minutes, apart from the first one which lasts 40 minutes and is free.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a degree in Psychology (membership of BPS), plus Counselling and Psychotherapy qualifications and experience working with adults, children and young people for over 25 years.
I obtained my Hypnotherapy qualifications at the National College of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy in 1995, followed by the Advanced Diploma in Hypno-Psychotherapy in 2002 issued by NCHP.
Since then I have worked constantly in private practice, among others in Harley Street and Hale Clinic in London. For several years I worked as a school and college counselor, with young people and staff. I kept broadening my knowledge in the field, attending courses on CBT, Mindfulness and Stress Management. I am trained in different approaches, like Psychodynamic, CBT, Gestalt, Rogerian, and can say that my general approach is integrative.
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
I have a 'packet' of 4 stop-smoking sessions with offered aftercare.
Eating disorders and self-harm is something I had to deal with very often when working with young people as a college counselor. Counseling techniques and Hypnotherapy were very valuable tools when tackling the underlying issues and distorted view of reality.
I have a long experience dealing with all sorts of emotional and psychological issues, especially social difficulties, where Hypnotherapy proved to be particularly helpful, like lack of confidence, anxiety, phobias, self-image - and any other issues posed by our society and the way we live.
First half-hour session is free, followed by 50 minutes' sessions at £65 each.
First free session will help me assess the issue, how long the treatment may take approximately, the approach, answering questions etc.
Some people are unsure about what Hypnotherapy is and have fears and misconceptions about it. During this session I explain that it is a safe, natural process facilitating relief for a wide variety of problems.
