My hypnotherapy in Edinburgh is a natural, safe and powerful tool to help you overcome your problems and access your full potential.

Dr Albert Ellis, the originator of cognitive Therapy & Diplomate from the American Board of Psychological Hypnosis said: "Dear Robin, in general, you have done an excellent job in presenting some of your own problems and how you conquered them with REBT and the therapy of Claire Weekes. I think that the book would definitely be helpful to clients with all kinds of anxiety problems - there are many good things I could say about your book, I would definitely like to see the book published, since it seems to include some creative ideas."

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
