Senior Accredited Clinical Hypnotherapist & Supervisor specialising in Anxiety, Stress, Low mood, Health issues & Eating behaviours.
Looking for some help and support? If things are feeling a bit much, you're struggling to cope or just want to feel like yourself again, you're not alone. I've had years of experience helping people create positive changes in their lives and would be happy to hear from you to see if I can help.
A bit of background...
I'm an experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist and work with clients from all over the country online. Working together online is a safe, effective and convenient way to help you get support that fits in with your lifestyle and family/work commitments. I combine my psychological expertise with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy to help you make positive, lasting changes. I'm also qualified to supervise and mentor other therapists and deliver lectures in Hypnotherapy and Health. As a senior therapist, I also hold Accredited membership status with the National Council for Hypnotherapy (MNCH Acc.) and as a result of my passion and success as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist am honoured to have been appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH). This is the only professional listing organisation dedicated to Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioners (www.afsfh.com).
As well as being a very experienced therapist, I have a professional background in Psychology, Health Psychology and Clinical Research and have been studying brains and behaviour for over 25 years (my passion!!!). My extensive post-graduate research involved exploring the crucial relationships between negative emotional states and their effects on physical health, as well as the influence of our behaviours on changes in our moods, from a psychological, psychopharmacological and neuroscientific perspective.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is an effective way to restore a healthy balance between these relationships for therapeutic benefit, and I've helped many people to overcome their anxiety, fears, stress and low mood, as well as help them to develop healthier habits and behaviours.
I'm passionate about helping others to help themselves, and in empowering clients to make positive changes to their thoughts, feelings and behaviours!
Every person I see experiences their struggles differently, and I therefore tailor my approach to the unique needs of every client, ensuring that they receive the best, most appropriate and effective support to help them make the changes they want.
Combining aspects of neuroscience with elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, NLP and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Solution Focused Hypnotherapy also uses clinical hypnosis to provide an effective approach for encouraging beneficial and lasting changes. It can make a positive difference to the way we react by changing or replacing old, unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaving with more useful ones, enabling us to cope so much better with life's challenges.
Using a wide variety of tools and techniques, I can help you to feel better, but also help you to develop your own skills and strategies for the future, so that you can calmly and confidently deal with whatever the world throws at you.
Change is possible... you don't have to put up with things...
Hypnotherapy can be used to address a wide variety of issues, and I specialise in helping people who are suffering from:
- Anxiety & fears
- Stress - chronic and specific (scenario-related or PTSD)
- Confidence issues
- Depression & low mood
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and other digestive issues
- Chronic/persistent pain issues, including Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, RLS and other pain or inflammatory issues
I'm also experienced in helping clients overcome binge eating and emotional eating, to help them develop healthier relationships with food. I also have experience in helping clients manage their diabetes, helping them to manage their eating behaviours and stress levels to help control their condition (I'm Ncfe certified in understanding the Care and Management of Diabetes).
There are many things that hypnotherapy can help with, more than can be listed here and in the list at the bottom of this page, so please get in touch if you have any questions or if you would like further information about whether hypnotherapy could be useful for you.
You can also find more information on my website at www.greenhypnotherapy.co.uk
There are many therapists to choose from, so make sure you choose someone who is well qualified, registered and experienced in what you are seeking help for. Also, do check the hypnotherapist is actually professionally registered with organisations they claim to be part of, by checking the online listing with the organisation itself e.g. at www.AfSFH.com for Solution Focused Hypnotherapists.
It's also so important that you feel comfortable and confident with your chosen therapist, and so before booking your Initial consultation & Assessment with me, please feel free to call or email me to have a chat or if you have any questions about hypnosis, hypnotherapy or the process. (You can also contact me via a web form on my website).
Initial Consultation & Assessment: The initial consultation and assessment usually lasts around an hour. It's a great opportunity to fully discuss your concerns, for us to get to know each other and for me to explain in detail how hypnotherapy can benefit you, and to answer any other questions you may have. You will also receive a free MP3 that you will be able to use at home, which will help to reinforce the benefits of hypnosis.
To book your initial consultation, please call or text me on 07956 179408. Alternatively, you can email me at: email@example.com
Follow-up sessions: These are also an hour long and the number of sessions required will vary depending on each person's unique circumstances. This will be discussed during the initial consultation.
***I understand people often have family and work commitments, so can also offer flexible daytime and evening appointments during the week as well as on Saturdays at no extra cost.***

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'm also experienced in helping clients deal with the negative emotional impacts of living with Chronic or Persistent Pain and long term health issues, including conditions such as Fibromyalgia, PMR, RLS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME) and long COVID.
