Mandy Connor DipCHyp, HPD, NLP, QCHPA (reg ) MNCH (reg)
Hello, let me start with saying, I love what I do!
I've always been interested in why we behave the way we do. Why do we react differently to others? Is this normal? After experiencing the effects Anxiety, Stress and Grief myself, I wanted to find about more. This led me to the Quest Institute at Regent's University London, where I trained and qualified as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist. One of the many things I learned about our behaviour is, (simply put) most of it is determined by our brain, based on past experiences. So it's normal for you. One of the other things I've learned and can help with is, we can absolutely change negative behaviour if we want to. Sometimes, sooner than you think. Seeing my Clients making that change, really does make me happy.
I run a successful Practice in Aberdeenshire and Online. Over the years, I have worked with and helped Clients from a wide variety of backgrounds, cultures and age groups.
All our sessions are in confidence and without judgement. It's important to us both you feel comfortable and safe when we work together.
But maybe you're unsure if hypnotherapy is for you. I offer a free 20 minute (online or phone) consultation, no sales pitch, only a chance help you decide if you think what I offer is the right therapy for you and if you think I am the right Therapist to help you. A frequently asked question is "how many sessions will I need?" I work on a session by session basis, I don't ask my clients to block book, as I have full confidence in you knowing when you have made the change you desire.
I have a particular interest in Anxiety, Stress and Self Esteem issues, but the list of what I can help you with, really is endless. So why not take the next step towards a happier you and get in touch to book your free consultation.
Why Cognitive Hypnotherapy?
Cognitive Hypnotherapy is not about swinging watches, nor is it about reading scripts for the “problem” that you might have. It’s about understanding who you are and why you do what you do, whatever that is – whether there’s something you no longer want to do and you can’t help yourself, or perhaps there something you want to do and something is keeping you stuck. So whether it’s a habit that you want to break, whether it’s a fear, however large or small it can be changed, sometimes so simply and so quickly.
I'm still here to help. We can still have successful sessions working together online using Zoom. It works really well and you will be surprised how quickly it becomes normal. The benefits of working this way are, you being in the comfort of your own space and I can be more flexible with appointment times. If you are a little nervous, get in touch for a chat.
Our initial chat and following sessions will always be in complete confidence, without judgement. Please give me a call on: 07827911316 or click here to send me an email for more information.

"I just wanted to say thank you to Mandy. I have suffered all my life with low self esteem and jealousy issues in my relationships. I felt completely at ease with Mandy, she has the ability to make you feel so relaxed. We talked and Mandy gave me a way to deal with my jealousy. I couldn't actually believe that this could work. But it did. I will be always very grateful. Thank you Mandy."
"Being deaf is truly awful and without professional help can lead to a sad and lonely life on the edge of your social circle instead of interacting and being fully engaged with your friends and even your family.
Imagine now how much worse it can be if you also have to deal with Tinnitus. Fellow suffers will know how absolutely devastating it can be. In my case it came very suddenly and dramatically in an unexpected way.
I was awakened in the early hours of one morning by what I thought was “anti social behaviour” by a group of people who I thought were in my front garden. They were shouting, arguing and singing, very, very loudly and all at the same time. How strange and how puzzling for me as I could hear these people so loudly when I had removed my hearing aids before retiring to bed. After a good few minutes I decided to confront the group and hopefully persuade them to be quiet and move on. Drawing back the curtain and on opening the window I was completely baffled to find there were no people but I could still hear the noise. These noises became a regular unwanted early morning visitor to disturb my sleep leaving me feeling tired and lacking energy throughout the day.
I wanted help first to understand how I can hear these noises when no one else can hear them and then hopefully obtain treatment in the form of medication to deal with whatever is the cause of all this. An appointment with my audiologist confirmed the condition known as Tinnitus and there is no help available in the form of medication but there is “sound therapy”. This would involve listening to pre-recorded sounds as an aid to induce sleep. Of course my problem was not that simple as I was being wakened up from sleep after a few hours. There were short periods when the tinnitus did not appear but even then I wakened up as my sleep pattern was now set. Only on the odd occasion did I manage to sleep through.
After several weeks of the same relentless struggle to deal with my Tinnitus I saught help through professional counselling with a fully qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist who would introduce me to EFT(Emotional Freedom Techniques) as an aid to control my tinnitus to such a degree that it no longer interrupts my sleeping.
My sessions with Mandy were carried out in my case via a video link using the internet. It was very well presented, easy to understand and the techniques to be learned were very simple. In only a couple of sessions I was ready to apply what I had been taught.
What a fantastic result I have had for in a very short time I am Tinnitus free during the night and back to enjoying a good night’s sleep. It is simply wonderful
I am very much indebted to the understanding, the professionalism, and the skill of my therapist Mandy Connor who helped me control my problem with Tinnitus."
"It was so easy to write this because you really have made a difference to the way I think about chocolate, so thank you, please feel free to use this if helpful. Once again Mandy thank you so much for your help.
Being a self-confessed Chocoholic I never imagined that by spending an hour with Mandy Connor would or even could change my attitude towards my favourite habit!
I have always been renowned for my sweet tooth and would eat chocolate several times a days without even thinking about it, so when Mandy talked to me about my attitude towards chocolate and it really did seem just like 2 friends talking, I could not believe just how easy she refocused my attitude and thought process.
Well one month later I am as surprised today as I was after our consultation. I can certainly recommend Mandy, her approach and attitude it really special.
Thank you Mandy"
