About me

I am a full time Senior Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist and Supervisor Sup (Hyp) with extensive professional & personal experience and understanding, and a clear goal to help people get over the problems & issues, which are holding them back. But more than that, I help people to connect again to themselves, other people and their own resources.

I am additionally also offering coaching support when going through a transition. I found that people are struggling to find the right level of support when going through this challenging, stressful phase. I want to close the gap and offer specific, individual, practical and transformational support. Areas of transition I can help with: divorce, conscious uncoupling, new start, promotion, move, new relationship or job, breakdown, setback in business, loss of a loved one, health challenge, retirement or finding a new purpose ... . I am working here with individuals, couples as well as small groups.

Originally from Germany, I founded ‘Changes Welcome Hypnotherapy' in 2012, and now practice in Bristol & Gloucestershire Stroud (Nailsworth) & Berkeley (South Glos). Working alongside Solution Focused Hypnotherapist Sam Little I offer sessions in English or German, Face-to-Face or via Webcam.

What we Help
We work with all kinds of people, with all kinds of issues.

I am particularly interested in helping people to change how they experience life, seeing life from the inside out, realising that it's their thoughts, which create their feelings and their experience of life. People who reach out for help have much more power and control then they currently think they have. Issues and wrong thinking create a perception of making outside circumstances responsible for our feelings, which is not the case. They see things from the outside in, rather than from the inside out, making outside circumstances seem responsible for disturbed feelings or feeling stuck.

Here are some areas I am very experienced and successful in helping people with: Anxiety, Confidence and Self-Esteem Issues, Stress and Depression, Panic Attacks, Motivation, IBS, Phobias, Addictions (such as gambling, quit smoking, food), and Weight Loss... And I'm trained to work with children too. For example: Low Confidence, Anxiety, Stress, Exam Nerves, Bullying, Panic Attacks, Fear of Darkness, Depression, Separation anxiety.

What our clients say:

  • “Liane is highly skilled and works with a great method, so I rapidly became a better version of myself. One gets the benefit of the full attention of a kind,generous, wise therapist. As a therapist myself I recognise that I have found a gem.”Hazel, Gloucestershire.
  • “When I first meet Liane I was desperate, I couldn’t think straight I was shaking all the time, I wasn’t eating I just couldn’t function normally. After the first session with Liane I felt a lot calmer, she just knows what to say and how to say it without making you feel your being silly or inadequate. She is so calm and kind. Liane has taught me to look at things differently in a more positive way. I always felt so much better after my sessions with Liane.
    I can’t recommend her enough, life can be tough but she helps you find your way . Hypnotherapy really does work.
    Thank you Liane.”
    Kay Clark, Nailsworth
  • “I have only positive things to say about my experience with Liane. She is very perceptive, good fun and able to help one see things in a different light. I looked forward to my weekly sessions as not only a time to relax, but a time to help me change the way I thought about different issues. A difficult relationship is now much easier and less stressful for me, for the first time in my life I can actually feel when I’ve eaten enough (!) and I have a kinder attitude towards myself.
    For anyone considering hypnotherapy with Liane I would say, “Go for it! You’ve nothing to lose and quite a bit to gain.”
    Ceri Sheppard.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the highly esteemed Clifton Practice in Bristol, an accredited centre of excellence in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy and a leading UK government recognised teaching authority.   Here I gained the 'Hypnotherapy Practitioner's Diploma' (HPD), which is widely recognised as the gold standard in hypnotherapy, as well as the 'Diploma in Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy (DHP)'. And, being a mum myself, I jumped at the chance to do additional training to offer hypnotherapy to 'Mums to Be', Children & Teenagers alike.

Background Experience:

  • Having worked in management positions in the corporate environment in Germany, Austria, and the UK, as well as within smaller companies and cooperatives, I've learned a lot about people, and working dynamics. I am very passionate about helping people to deal with these dynamics, with stress, confidence, motivation, leadership issues, bullying, anxiety & addiction... and to create the right balance of work and pleasure in their lives.
  • Hypnotherapy Online via Webcam is becoming very popular with busy people such as business travellers or parents, and I see a lot of people this way.

Member organisations

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.

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.

The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
