About me

I carry out all my sessions online.

Hello! 

My name is Harriet and I am a qualified integrative therapist specialising in CBT, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness and ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy).  

Having completed the Eating Disorder Practitioner with the NCFED (BPS approved) training, my work is focused on helping those struggling with disordered eating and unhealthy body image. 

Diet culture has left a mark on many of us. One of the main marks I see is people feeling disconnected to themselves. Thus, my mission through therapy, is to help people connect back to themselves through understanding and bringing awareness to how their mind works (the connection between thoughts, feelings and behaviour); becoming clear on values; and learning to manage stress and anxiety effectively.

What is cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy?
The cognitive behavioural approach to hypnosis is different to the "state theory" of hypnosis in that it rejects the notion of a "hypnotic trance" and credits the use of ordinary psychological factors such as suggestion, expectation, and imagination. This places emphasis on the approach leading to realistic change that is sustainable to maintain.

Research shows (Kirsch et al.) that cognitive behavioural therapies were more effective when integrated with hypnosis, which makes these two approaches a power couple when effectively helping people achieve positive long-term change in short duration of time.

My values and ethics

Client first 
The client experience is my top priority. I will ask meaningful questions throughout our work together to ensure we are working in a way that serves you. If something isn’t working, we'll change tact and try something else. It’s all part of the process. I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to be open and honest with me to ensure we put you in the best position to achieve your goals.

Feedback approach 
I will openly ask for feedback after every session to ensure the sessions are working for you. Therapeutic interventions are not a one-size-fits-all approach which is why I will always place importance on your feedback.

Transparency
I will always be honest and transparent when it comes to working together. To be ethical, I can only accept clients that have a presenting issue within my scope of competence. Moreover, I do not try and sell you a "miracle cure". Not all interventions and techniques work for everyone - and in fact, we learn the most from the interventions that do not work. I use your feedback to ensure we're working in manner that serves you. I will always provide psycho-education so you understand the rationale behind the approach.

Evidence led
I chose to obtain an evidence based qualification because I value science and empirical research. My practice will not involve lunar phases, tarot cards, crystals or anything else of that nature. There’s nothing wrong with these kinds of practices, and from an experience led perspective, I can appreciate their use.  However, they will not be present in my practice. 

I look forward to hearing from you,

Harriet

Training, qualifications & experience

I achieved my degree in Psychology (BSc) in 2017, achieving a first class status. Following from this, I obtained my diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (Dip, CBH), which specifically focused on evidence based practice. My training also equips me to deliver relaxation, mindfulness, and assertiveness coaching. I have also completed the Eating Disorder Practitioner programme with the NCFED (BPS approved) and I am currently working on achieving full master eating disorder practitioner status.

Furthermore, I have undertaken a Stress Management and Resilience Training diploma as well as training in ACT approaches with Russ Harris.

I am passionate about working with those struggling with disordered eating, body image struggles, anxiety and low self-esteem as these are struggles that I have also faced for many years and proud to say I have conquered.

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

I specialise in helping individuals work through and heal their disordered eating and stressful body image to find true food and body image freedom.
