About me

Hello, I am the owner of The Hypnotherapy Hut, situated next to Piece Hall in Halifax.  As a qualified Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. I specialise in working with women who suffer with Anxiety, and in particular are struggling to balance hormones with their moods. Working with women who have Fertility issues, as well as those going through the Menopause, and can do this face to face from my large, light and airy practice or online if preferred.

What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a very positive type of therapy, focusing on the here and now, and working with you to create the change you seek.  Unlike some talking therapies, we do not focus on the issues and problems, analysing past behaviour and troubles. Instead we look for solutions and concentrate on all the good in your life.  Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is able to create long term change and The Hypnotherapy Hut is here to help you gain control of your life.

We know that stress hormones can affect our mood, but these can also upset our balance of hormones and affect fertility, and later on in life- the perimenopausal shift into the menopause. I look to work with women to feel a greater sense of calm and control in these areas. Whilst also using Hypnotherapy to bring about an increased chance of success with falling and staying pregnant. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I studied with CPHT Leeds and completed my Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, having completed over 250 sessions of Hypnotherapy with clients during that time.  I come from a training and coaching background, having worked with both children and adults in this area in various sectors.  I also have a BTEC Professional Development Certificate in Advanced Counselling Skills and Theory which has given me a great base to build from.

I have completed specialist training in Menopause Hypnotherapy along with Fertility Psychotherapy and Hypnosis.

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

In particular I work with women who are suffering anxiety due to hormonal issues.

I run a Fertility Programme, both as a group or 1 to 1, as well as a 1 to 1 Managing your Menopause programme.
