Hiroko Ashley-Wilson BA Psy, PGCert (Clin. Hyp.), MNLP
Hi, I am Hiroko, a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner, a member of The Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council and bound by their code of ethics and standards of professional training.
I am based in Hampstead in north-west London, where my consultations take place in a comfortable, private and safe environment. I also practise from a therapy room, near Tottenham Court Road in Central London for a few days per week.
I trained as a hypnotherapist because having experienced hypnotherapy myself, I felt drawn to learn more about this fascinating subject that the inner mind which connected to our body links to emotion, imagination, memory as well as the autonomic nervous system. I was fascinated by the therapy of how it combines the knowledge of neuroscience with the power of the guided deep relaxed state of mind.
The length of time spent in therapy depends largely on you and your needs, and hypnotherapy tends to be shorter than other counselling or psychotherapy because we are focusing on one topic at a time. The therapy works through a step by step process and hypnotherapy is not different. Like any other therapies, some benefit from therapy is largely due to a person’s readiness for change.
I have studied counselling skills which in line with the person-centred approach, this enables me to gain insight into the style of working more tailored sessions for you with building trust. For most people, the sessions are very enlightening and healing and create opportunities to experience positive change through building coping ability and improving confidence and hope for the future.
Some of the issues I have worked with as a hypnotherapist include, but are not limited to:
Stress, Anxiety, Panic, Depression, Insomnia, Relationship and Family issues, Phobia, Trauma, Bereavement, Infertility, Hypnobirthing, Self-esteem, Confidence, Life transitions and Self-development.
I am Japanese, fluent in English and have experience of working with a wide range of clients of different ages, sexualities, ethnics and cultural backgrounds.
I am DBS checked, fully insured.
I look forward to hearing from you.
