About me

Hello, I’m Heidi and I’m a professionally trained Clinical Hypnotherapist based online and in Tintern in the Wye Valley,  Monmouthshire.

I practise Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, which is a gentle and effective form of therapy that can swiftly help you achieve positive and lasting change. I was encouraged to try hypnotherapy myself and I was truly amazed at the results. This was a therapy that worked in a positive way and helped me find solutions, without raking over the past or demanding the impossible. 

Like many people, the stresses and strains of modern life can take its toll. Trying to balance a high-pressure full-time job with the demands of parenting, while carrying around my own personal and emotional challenges of the past resulted in the all too common but very unpleasant symptoms of stress and anxiety.

Hypnotherapy gave me the tools to deal with work and parenting in a way eased up the stress response and brought me back to the joy I was lacking. It also gave me the confidence I needed to first change my work pattern and eventually to move on from my job into doing something I felt would be much more rewarding.

This meant I could focus on the direction I wanted my life to take next, and that was to train to become a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist myself. I’m a creative person and finding solutions is something I find very natural and enjoyable, therefore Solution Focused Hypnotherapy was a perfect fit...

And I can help you too! 

As you can see, I have very real experience of being on both sides of the consultation room and this means that my approach is a sympathetic and friendly one, focused on helping you find the solutions you need in your life.

I want to help people rediscover how to feel good in the way I did through my own experience of hypnotherapy. This is a fantastic gift to be able to be pass on to others and I find it a rewarding and motivating profession.

My clinic is now online and I am able to take on new clients from anywhere within the UK.  So do get in touch to arrange your free 30 minute initial consultation.

"I feel relaxed, calm, refreshed. Highly recommend this form of therapy."

"I had hypnotherapy with Heidi to help with stress and anxiety. It was very effective, and worked where other therapies have failed. I found it extremely relaxing and helpful, and Heidi is very professional. I really recommend hypnotherapy and especially Heidi. Thanks Heidi!"

Wheelchair user access

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.
