Lesley Reid BA (Hons), DCH, DHP
I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, specialising in Hypnosis for Birthing and Fertility based in New Malden (Motspur Park), South West London. I'm passionate about what I do and really do believe that anything is possible when you believe in yourself.
As a qualified hypnobirthing teacher I usually work on a one to one basis with couples. I am especially keen to work with women or couples who are 'high risk', over 35, have had previous difficult births, perinatal anxiety or have suffered Post Natal Depression.
Hypnosis can also help with unexplained infertility as well as helping you through IVF.
Why See Me
What drew me to training as a hypnotherapist was my own life long struggle with depression and anxiety. When I developed crippling health anxiety in 2009, I realised that unless I challenged and took control of my fears, my anxieties would only escalate. Hypnotherapy provided the means for me to learn to take back control of my life and this is why I love passing on these techniques to others. I understand how crippling anxiety, in all its forms, can be and how isolating depression can be, but I truly do believe that when you find the right person to work with, change can happen.
Hypnotherapy for Anxiety
Anxiety can affect your physical as well as mental health. Learn how to relax, employ effective coping strategies and begin to enjoy living again.
Hypnosis for Birthing
After a traumatic first birth, I read a book on hypnobirthing and just that helped me to have a significantly more positive second birth. Hypnobirthing is about achieving a positive experience without fear. It is not about pain free, intervention free birthing.
Hypnosis for Fertility
Hypnosis cannot guarantee a successful pregnancy but it may help to place you in a stronger mental place, tackle obsessive thoughts and reduce stress.
I am an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist. Anxiety UK is a national registered charity proving support to those affected by anxiety disorders. They not only provide valuable support and information, they also allow members to access discounted therapy including hypnotherapy, CBT and NLP. I am so pleased and proud, to be associated with them.
