About me

Helen Gormley

MEd, MA (Ed), PGTC, BSc (Hons Psy), Dip. CBH, Dip. SMRB, GHR (Reg), GHQP, MNCH (Reg), REBHP, CHFP, MAC, FRSA

Hello I’m Helen and I am a qualified transformational and wellbeing coach and therapist with many years of experience, insight and qualifications in the field of wellbeing, change and maximising human potential (psychology, positive psychology, coaching, mindfulness, energy psychology, cognitive behavioural therapy and cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy, NLP and body based approaches (yoga, yoga therapy and somatics)).

I offer a supportive therapeutic service based on tried and tested approaches which is solution focused. For example, by combining Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) with Hypnotherapy (Hypno-CBT) which is called Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) I can treat a wide range of conditions including anxiety, phobias and low self confidence. I use a creative application of hypnotherapy, where I am socializing my clients to relate to their world, understanding that it is not the events that are affecting us but the way we think about them. I offer a solution focussed and strengths based approach where there is the opportunity to combine several approaches to achieve very positive results.

I work with adults, children and organisations. I have a background in education and psychology which includes experience of being a teacher.

I focus on wellbeing and positive change together with specific areas of focus which might include: Anger Management, Anxiety, Confidence, Career Change, Depression, Fears and phobias eg Exam Nerves and Fear of flying, Insomnia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Motivation, Performance Issues, Relationship Issues, Weight Loss (Hypnodieting) and Stress.

Member organisations


Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

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.


National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH)

The National Council for Hypnotherapy holds one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists in the United Kingdom and strives to maintain the highest standards among its members.

There is an agreed Code of Conduct, an established Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure and all members are obliged to maintain comprehensive Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance, maintain regular CPD (continuing professional development) hours, and attend Supervision when needed.

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 offer an integrative approach to Wellbeing providing a coherent framework for my clients.
