Fiona offers therapy with empathy, compassion and a belief that, in so many areas of our lives, we have the resources we need to heal and effect change within ourselves, including issues relating to Anxiety and Stress. Fiona lives in Northallerton, where she practices as a Clinical Hypnotherapist at Hale House Clinic, in addition to working for a leading learning disability charity. She completed a Post Graduate Certificate in supporting people with complex behaviours in 2015, further developing her interest in how our minds and thought processes influence our behaviour, by undertaking a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy. Since qualifying , she has successfully supported a number of people with a diverse range of issues, from anxiety to weight reduction.
Fiona is passionate about empowering others to overcome their fears, phobias, stress, anxiety, unwanted behaviours and so much more, having experienced first hand the positive and liberating impact of Hypnotherapy on her own life.
Fiona offers an initial consultation at a reduced rate, enabling you to learn more about hypnotherapy, how it can help and decide whether it’s right for you. She is also happy to discuss your reason for seeking support in a telephone call, free of charge, prior to booking a consultation.

The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

'Fiona, we really can't thank you enough for the work you have done, it must be amazing to be able to make such a difference to a young persons life. Best thing I ever did was pick up your leaflet at Hale House and read through it, and knew instinctively that this was something that could work (for our daughter), and certainly has'
'Through a very dark and confused period of my life, Fiona's understanding and compassion became a safe refuge I could rely on. I will remain forever grateful for my time with Fiona'
"I undertook the Hypnoslimmer programme with Fiona and was amazed with the results. No snacking between meals and no cravings for chocolate which was my downfall. Reduced by 26cm after 3 sessions and still going strong. Fiona was compassionate and knowledgeable. I could not recommend her highly enough"
"Fiona is amazing would definitely recommend going to see her with any issues you have, I did and have achieved loads since......5 out of 5 all the way"
'I have had hypnotherapy with the lovely Fiona to help me with depression and lack of self confidence. I never thought I'd be able to be hypnotised, but with Fiona being so understanding, I was soon very relaxed and responsive. I have done really well and would highly recommend a course of hypnotherapy. At 75 years young and with a lifetime of different treatments, I am now a new woman looking forward to the future and flying for the first time!! Thank you so much Fiona, you have made my life worth living''

Thank you thank you so much ????. I will continue to use self hypnosis as its making such a difference in my life in general! ????'
