About me

Working since 2003, I have had experience in the field of mental health, physical disability, chronic illness, well-being and oncology.

I now run my own private practice in Hampshire and am the Principal Practitioner at The Holistic Practice working through issues surrounding: turmoil, anxiety, addictions, habits, stress, Palliative Care, family pressures, and problematic relationships - including psychological issues and fear associated with pregnancy and birth.

My personalised technique uses hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Therapy and psychology in combination - formulated exclusively for the individual needs of each client.

I aim to see clients for no more than 8 sessions for anyone particular issue as I believe if the patient's problems can be resolved using my techniques then there should be no need for a long drawn out expensive appointment process.

Please do visit my website (www.hmakin.com) to get a feel for how I work in detail and whether I am the sort of person you would feel at ease and comfortable with. I am always available by phone for an informal discussion or advice before we decide to book an appointment / whether this treatment process is right for you.

Member organisations


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.

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Terminal Illness
Palliative Care
