Eve Parmiter (HPD, DipCogHyp, NLP Master Practitioner)
You’re probably here because there’s something you want to explore, understand, or change.
Maybe it’s something you want to move towards, like confidence, drive, or connection. Maybe it’s something you want to move away from, like anxiousness, doubt, or depression. Maybe you just want to feel more at ease with yourself.
If there is something about your thoughts, feelings or actions that you’d like to address, you’re in the right place.
When you’re considering therapy or coaching, it can be difficult to know how to choose who to work with. The information here can help with that, as can a 15 minute phone call, so feel free to get in contact here and we’ll arrange a good time to talk.
Why do people work with me?
Organisations and individuals work with me to make meaningful changes in their lives and teams. Improving performance, developing resilience, and building wellbeing all contribute to achieving high hard goals, rich connection, and deep fulfillment.
My experience covers military, public, and private sectors, from new recruits to C-suite, so whatever your sector, whatever your level, the work adapts to your needs.
Business client: "After watching the TV show Billions we had the crazy idea of hiring our Wendy [the company's star in-house performance coach]. Having been involved in full-time sport I have always valued what a psychologist or therapist can bring. In the corporate environment, it was a test for us and we didn't know how it would impact the performance of our people.
*However, the results have even surprised us with some people increasing their performance by 50%.*
Eve is able to provide us with something we don't have and have confidential sessions with our people which unlock blockages whether they are personal or business-related. Based on the impact she has had we have hired her replica in our Miami and Singapore offices."
What is therapy?
Therapy is a process, using evidence-based methods to support the change you want to make. This can include addressing thoughts, feelings, and actions, as well as your relationship with your self, others, and your life.
The work is trauma-informed, growth-oriented, and mindful of intersectionality.
Therapy provides space, structure, and safety. It is non-judgmental, challenging, and supportive. And you might find it more enjoyable than you expect.
You may be wondering, "Do you have experience working with my situation"?
You'll see a long list in the section below.
Whether or not your situation is included here, feel free to get in touch so we can talk about it. Your experience of your situation is unique and goes beyond any list. If we’re not a good fit, I may be able to refer you to a specific colleague.
Training, qualifications & experience
- NLP Master Practitioner
- Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma
- Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy
I have an academic background in international politics, which I followed up with humanitarian and NGO work, before shifting my focus to training in martial arts.
On the way to achieving my blackbelt, from very unathletic beginnings, I overcame issues with a chronic neurological condition (trigeminal neuralgia), disordered eating, and PTSD. The latter is what brought me – very reluctantly! – to getting therapy. Fortunately, pain is an antidote to bias. Even more fortunately, the therapy was so unexpectedly effective that I decided to retrain as a therapist so I could offer to others what had made such a difference to my life.
Alongside these, I have trained and worked as a professional actor, run a consultancy, and delivered training to groups ranging from primary schools to military, and sales teams, to artists, athletes, and entrepreneurs. And I'm currently the president of a public speaking group.
Why diversity? Because I want to know what I can become capable of. I want the challenge, the adventure, the unexpected rewards and insights that are possible *if* you’re willing to do the work – be that work hard, easy, gritty, or playful. And I keep meeting amazing people along the way, growing wonderful connections that make it all the more meaningful.
There’s a lot of life to live – so let’s go.

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
- Feeling anxious
- Feeling depressed
- Fear of doing something
- Issues with food and body
- Changing habits
- Improving performance in sports, in sales, in public speaking - often using principles from flow research into peak performance and optimal states
- Grief and loss
- Developing confidence & resilience, and our capacities for creativity, awe, and wonder
- Calming overthinking
- Improving communication, team, and relationship skills - personal and professional
- Building self-esteem
- Clarifying goals, values, and purpose
- Finding meaning beyond yourself
- Dealing with burnout
- Improving well-being
When you contact me, we’ll arrange a good time for a 15 minute phone call. This will help us decide if we want to work together. If we do then I’ll send you some information for you to read and respond to before our first session.
The purpose of the first session is to map where you currently are, what you want to change, what you’d love the outcome to be - and to begin that change from day one. We will then be able to arrange our schedule of sessions accordingly.
Sessions are £175 and are 75 mins. After the first session, sometimes single ad hoc sessions will be appropriate, sometimes a set of regularly scheduled sessions will be best. And sometimes I will create audio recordings for you to use, such as guided visualisations, to support our work. We will tailor our approach to your needs.
"Will it be worth it?"
That’s a judgment only you can make, and only once you’ve done the work.
A useful question to consider is: what will happen if you don’t find out? There’s a reason you’re thinking about therapy. Most likely there is something you want. If you don’t get that thing, what will your life be like? What will become impossible or unavailable to you? Will that be OK for you?
Insight can happen quickly, which is wonderful. Then, making permanent positive change requires practice – sometimes gentle, sometimes determined. The results you experience will depend upon the energy, focus, and consistency you have available.
Rest assured that no effort is wasted. And no one can know what will grow from the seeds planted. But we do know that if we don’t plant the seeds then no, they won’t grow.
A useful analogy is that of two boats setting out to sea. There is a difference of only one degree in their trajectory. At first there seems to be no difference in their directions, yet over time they end up in very different locations. We can use this power of marginal gains to our advantage, and we can track and celebrate each step of your achievements along the way.
I myself have worked through issues with PTSD, anxiety, and grief, and used therapeutic tools to enhance athletic, creative, professional, and personal aspects of my life. The people I’ve worked with have overcome hundreds of other challenges. The methods themselves have changed the lives of thousands. And for me, these practices made possible qualities of aliveness, performance, connection – and enjoyment (who knew!) – that would otherwise have been impossible. What I’ve learnt by doing continues to be transformational – and that’s what makes it worth it.
