About me

Hi, I’m Gillian Forrester and I offer a professional, solution focused approach to therapy.

I provide individual treatments to help my clients utilise the vast resources within them to create a happy and fulfilling life. We will help you focus your mind on what you want to achieve (the solution) more than on the issues or their causes. My approach focuses on the future and not on the past, creating a picture of positive actions and outcomes, letting your subconscious mind determine how to get there.

Clients issues often cover everything from anxiety and stress to phobias and addictions.  Maybe your looking for help with pain relief or weight management but rest assured that all information is treated as completely confidential. Treatment is tailored to the individual so your needs are met.

Both initial consultations and sessions can also be conducted by Skype or Zoom so there is no need to leave the comfort of your home. I offer a free initial consultation which lasts between half an hour and one hour. Call or email so we can start the discussion on how hypnotherapy can help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

A fully qualified and insured Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. I am registered with the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and abide by their strict code of ethics. 

I have trained in Medical Hypnotherapy which allows me to help and support clients with specific health challenges. This can cover many areas such as chronic illnesses, needle phobias, scanxiety, to patients going through chemotherapy or persistent pain.

The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) was set up to provide information about a modern form of Hypnotherapy and its associated benefits to members of the public. The main aim of the AfSFH is to spread awareness of the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care.

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.

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.
