About me

Gillian Wingard, Dip CBH., GQHP

Behavioural freedom - Free yourself

I am Gillian Wingard, I am a fully qualified Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist, specialising in anxiety and stress. For 25 years I worked in the fast-paced, continually-changing corporate world as a coach and mentor and I witnessed first-hand how stress and anxiety in such a pressure-cooker environment affects people at all levels. That’s why I started Behavioural Freedom.

I have also suffered personally with stress and anxiety, how it feels and how to effectively make changes and so my life experiences make me the perfect person to work with you to relieve whatever issues are stopping you from living a full, happy and worry-free life.

I studied Hypnotherapy and specifically Hypno-CBT, the combined use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnosis at the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy.

I am easy to talk to, approachable and above all passionate about helping people to free themselves from unwanted habits and behaviours. I sought hypnotherapy myself, which I found both amazingly effective and profoundly life changing. Hypnotherapy opened up my mind and the way I thought and approached the aspects of my life that were causing me concern. I understand how the thought processes that go on inside your head can be adapted and amended to take a different journey, one of freedom of thought and behaviour.

I have the skills to work with different types of people, the life experience to understand what individuals may be feeling from the effects of stress and anxiety and an overwhelming desire to help people become free from unwanted behaviours that may be holding them back.

I will equip you with the tools you need to positively change your behaviour using evidence-based Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH).

• Remove anxiety, tension and stress from your life

• Dramatically increase your confidence and self-esteem

• Become more assertive and independent

• Change or control your unwanted habits

• Improve your personal sales performance

• Increase your creativity and self-expression

• Move forward, remove your barriers and be who YOU want to be

I look forward to talking to you and beginning the journey to help you.

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

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.
