Mimi Fakhri MSc Dip. CBH GQHP
I use an evidence-based mixture of hypnotherapy, CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) techniques, and mindfulness to help you change the way you think, feel and behave.
I specialise in stress and anxiety (including phobias and insomnia), and also love helping people to break habits and develop healthier lifestyles, but if there's anything else that's troubling you please do feel free to get in touch to see if I can help.
Not all the hypnotherapists are the same - some focus on working on the past, and others claim to be able to solve all your problems in a single session.
My approach is evidence-based, collaborative (working with you rather than doing hypnosis "to" you) and focussed on the here and now. What do I mean by that?
I work with you to help you understand what is maintaining your stress, anxiety or worry, and develop a plan with you to help you break that cycle. That means therapy is practical and effective - we focus on the here and now, rather than working through issues from the past. I will discuss your goals with you so that we can come up with a plan together to get the best results in the fastest time. My aim is to teach you tools and techniques to manage stress and anxiety, so that you can help yourself and become your own therapist.
I have an "evidence-based" philosophy. That means I believe you have the right to treatment that is based on sound scientific evidence, and keep up to date with the latest research into hypnotherapy, CBT and mindfulness.
The most important element in hypnotherapy is that you feel comfortable working with your therapist. For that reason, I always recommend that we have a chat over the phone before you make any decision, so that you can get a feel for whether you'd be comfortable working with me, and I can check that my approach will be suitable to help you achieve your goals. Please feel free to contact me here.

I’m a fully qualified cognitive behavioural hypnotherapist working in Kingston and New Malden, with a background in psychology. I’m a specialist in relaxation, resilience and stress management.
I have a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy from the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy. I have a BSc in Psychology, an MSc in Behavioural Decision Sciences (the psychology of behaviour and decision making) and am currently working on a PhD exploring the role of emotions in decision making.

I am passionate about prioritising our mental and physical well-being and providing people with the tools and skills to help them help themselves. My aim is that you become your own therapist, not reliant on me.
I worked for over 15 years in blue-chip corporate business, so I understand first hand the pressures of a fast-paced, pressure-filled environment and the difficulties of juggling this with family life.
