About me

Hi, I’m Miriam a fully qualified and accredited hypnotherapist and the owner of Chiswick based Healing Voice Hypnotherapy. My passion and area of expertise is in helping people to reduce and manage phobias, stress, and any issues that they feel are seriously affecting their quality of life and enable my clients to be happy, completely self-expressed and allow their authentic way of being to come to the fore.

Why I became a Hypnotherapist

As a single mother having experienced the trauma of divorce, and trying to hold down a highly stressful corporate career, I reached a tipping point in my life where depression and anxiety were consuming my every waking hour. Not only was I feeling depressed, but this lead to me developing irrational phobias around driving, unfounded fears for my health and an overwhelming pessimism.  I had already tried what felt like every therapy known to mankind and was always left feeling empty. As a last resort I began to explore hypnotherapy and although not instantaneous, I knew that something was profoundly different with this style of intervention. As I progressed with each session I could feel and see the chains of anxiety that had been holding me down, start to break away link by link, it was quite literally liberating, and I knew I wanted to give this feeling to others.

My holistic approach

When coming to see me I take each client through a detailed initial consultation to make sure that all subsequent sessions target their specific needs and give them the tools that enable them to become the master of their own lives.

I have a holistic approach to my treatments, that encompass different techniques relevant to individual requirements. All my methods are clinically proven and will give my clients the best possible chance for success, these include mindfulness, relaxation, hypnosis, regression, EMT, EMDR and NLP.

"After decades of experience with hypnotherapy I know how hard it is to find someone I can fully trust with whom I can truly open up to and let go. Miriam is empathetic, heart-centred, non-judgemental and helps you feel you can overcome anything and everything holding you back."

Jenny Demetri  (London)

"Miriam is extremely likeable caring and emotionally in tune which for me was the first step in finding the right hypnotherapist to treat my menopausal symptoms. After only 3 sessions I felt my horrific hot flushes night sweats brain fog lift as if they had never existed I can not thank Miriam enough she is an extremely competent professional therapist who really gets it. Thank you."

Samantha S (London)

"I visited Miriam because I was suffering from anxiety and depression. I found her so relaxing, understanding and compassionate. Through her calming character, professionalism and targeted hypnotherapy I managed to make seismic changes during a tough time in my life. I can't recommend her enough.
Thank you Miriam."

Andy Davies ( The Cotswolds)

"I have had a fear of going to the dentist for as long as I can remember and in just one session I managed to book an appointment and see a dentist after not going for 20 years. I had a further session to reinforce my confidence and now truly believe I have finally over come my fears, so that you so much Miriam, I will definitely recommend."

Dogfender, The Ultimate Defence Collar

"I wanted to write this review independently of knowing Miriam for many years. In fact there’s no need to be anything else but completely honest. In the search for my own journey of healing, I have listened to hundred’s of hypnotherapy episodes on Spotify and none of them have even come close to what Miriam does. Listening to her voice is like being covered in a warm blanket of comfort and security. She listens and responds and always wants you to feel as comfortable as possible. I would recommend Miriam’s  services to anyone who wants to truly heal in a safe, caring environment."

Nadia Radcliffe (The Netherlands)

Hypnotherapy to help me switch off! 

What a wonderful session. The practitioner led me into a state of deep relaxation that I badly needed. I have been going through an extremely stressful period at work over the last two years. I have been unable to sleep properly and unable to switch off and am often worried about the future. The session enabled me to enjoy some real calm and positive energy. I have been using the meditation technique for myself and have found it really beneficial. Highly recommended. Thank you!
