Gail Marra D. Hyp, MBSCH, MAPHP
If change is what you're looking for, you've come to the right place.
I am a solution focused Clinical Hypnotherapist, life coach, mentor and author of the best selling book “Health Wealth & Hypnosis – The way to a beautiful life”.
I am a member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis, the Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.
Practicing a highly effective ‘solution focused’ approach to therapy, I work with clients of all ages and from all walks of life, helping them to overcome a variety of physical and psychological conditions and discover their true potential with the power of their subconscious mind.
I integrate a variety of theoretical perspectives to therapy according to individual needs with modalities such as:
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
Solution Focused therapy
EMDR / EFT
I have many years experience helping clients living with chronic pain, illness and disease, reducing stress and anxiety helping them cope better with medical procedures, tests and results, to manage pain and to encourage the body's natural healing process.

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.
