About me

Hello, I'm Lynn Mitcham, and I use hypnosis and other techniques to help people to achieve their full potential. I specialise in helping people suffering from anxiety, stress and lack of confidence or self-esteem, and with weight control. I am a trained Hypno-Gastric Band Practitioner and offer a 4-session Hypno-Gastric Band Programme for weight loss, as well as a 5-session Mindful Eating Programme. I also offer a 5-session gut-specific and gut-directed protocol for the relief of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (once the condition has been diagnosed by a doctor).

Hypnotherapy sessions are completely confidential and are held in pleasant rooms in Bournemouth and Wimborne.  They are relaxed and non-judgemental, and you can be assured of a caring and confidential environment. I work in a client-centred way, tailoring sessions to suit each individual client in order to achieve the best possible outcome.

I offer an initial consultation for just £15.00, where you can meet with me, we can discuss your needs and experience a short hypnosis relaxation session, and you can decide if you would like to proceed with therapy.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
