About me

Hi I'm Iona, I'm a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and I work with clients across all ages from as young as 10 years old. I have helped clients to overcome various issues from sleep (lack of or too much), anxiety, low mood, lack of confidence, OCD, fears and phobias, panic attacks and stopping smoking.

I work with clients both online (so you can be in the comfort of your own home) and face to face. My initial consultation is free and I'm also always happy to have a quick chat over the phone before you decide if this type of therapy is for you.

I absolutely love what I do. It’s so rewarding, watching the progression in every client and seeing the transformation in their lives. I don’t go back into people’s past, it’s all about focusing on identifying solutions and positive steps so a client can reach their preferred future.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained to become a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist with CPHT (the UK’s leading Hypnotherapy school). I have both the Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) and the Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD)  (only 20% of hypnotherapists have the HPD qualification).

I’m fully insured, have an enhanced DBS and am a member of both the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and as such abide by their strict code of ethics, so anybody who contacts me will be treated in strict confidence.

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.

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.

Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH)

The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) was set up to provide information about a modern form of Hypnotherapy and its associated benefits to members of the public. The main aim of the AfSFH is to spread awareness of the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care.

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

Working with young people from 10 years upwards


£70.00 per session
Free initial in-person or online session

Additional information

My Initial Consultation is free as I think it's important you understand how I work before you decide if you would like to work with me. It also allows me the time to get to know you better and understand if I can definitely help you.

Thereafter, each session (55 minutes) is £70 with the exception of stopping smoking session which is (90-120 minutes) and the cost is £180.
