I offer Hypno-CBT, which is basically hypnotherapy combined with cognitive behavioural therapy, to help with anxiety, phobias, social confidence, self esteem and motivation.
CBT looks at our thoughts - the way we process information - and our behaviour patterns. It can help us find ways to make positive changes in the way we think and behave. After using CBT to explore the issue and define goals, hypnotherapy can be used to reinforce those new behaviours and ways of thinking.
I offer a free initial 15-20 minute phonecall or online chat (on Zoom or Skype) where we can briefly discuss your issue, and I can answer any questions you might have. We can discuss whether sessions would be conducted face to face or online. We can also get an idea of whether we want to work with each other.
You're under no obligation to go ahead with treatment at this stage, so you can take your time and think about whether to proceed, or alternatively you might want to go ahead and make a booking.
If you want to meet face to face, the location would be at the Wellbeing Rooms in Bearsden, Glasgow. Alternatively we could meet online. Sessions last for 55 to 60 minutes, but the first session takes longer, up to 90 minutes. Hypnotherapy may or may not happen in the first session.
For most issues, four to six consultations are sufficient. For smoking cessation I offer either one single two-hour session, or this can be offered as two separate sessions, depending on preference. Heavier smokers may require more sessions, but this can be discussed in the initial free phone or online chat.
Contact me via the links above if you'd like to arrange a free initial phone call.
Training, qualifications & experience
- Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
- Registered with the GHR (General Hypnotherapy Register)
- Registered with CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council).
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.
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
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
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.
