Hilary Austin Dip Hyp CS, Ad. Dip CP
I am a qualified and experienced Integrative Therapist covering Stansted, Bishop's Stortford and surrounding area. My aim is to ensure that you feel understood and supported in a safe environment, enabling you to understand the present, explore and resolve the past and make positive changes for the future.
I run a full time practice from Forest Hall Therapy Centre, which is situated in a secluded courtyard in a semi-rural location just outside Stansted in Essex. There is plenty of free parking.
I am also a qualified Supervisor and hold one to one and group sessions for qualified and trainee Hypnotherapists.
At the centre we also run Peer Support Group sessions on a monthly basis, again for trainee and qualified Hypnotherapists. This includes inviting guest speakers from time to time to run workshops on specific topics.

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 also work with grief and loss
