Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Mediator

About me

As a qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist with Neuro-Linguistic Programming, I have the ability to effectively manage and deal with changing mindsets. Over the last ten years, I have successfully worked with young adults, families and couples in a variety of areas ranging from mental health conditions, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, anger, grief, phobias, sports enhancement, self-confidence, trauma and suicidal tendencies.

My constant pursuit of professional development, in parallel with my ability to understand, actively listen and utilise smart language fosters dialogue within any environment. My talking therapy, mediation and coaching sessions encourage individuals to break down their anxiety barriers, whilst empowering them to develop coping strategies, accepting and understanding change and developing new ways of working.

I am particularly interested in working with young minds, as the benefits of the therapy are life changing and can have an exponential impact on their futures.

Further information


"I really appreciate all the help Neleen has given me. With her help, I have learnt so much about myself, my problems, and how to deal with the problem’s life throws at me."

"Before I started working with Neleen, I’d been in therapy for close to three years. I would often struggle with managing high stress situations getting to point where I could not function and start panicking. I would often find myself relying on my therapist to talk me through situations because I did not trust my own instincts when handling a situation.

Neleen and I had three structured sessions together. We talked about my underlying emotions. The sessions were about giving me the tools to get to where I wanted to be and manage on a daily basis. I learned to step back and to give myself time and learnt to be patient with myself and using the techniques that Neleen taught me in order to take control on situations on my terms.

I am now able to step back and look at thing with some perspective. I am now able to deal with a situation without being overwhelmed. I am also able to recognise when a situation is not for me and remove myself when I know I cannot handle it or need to step back and take time to work out a strategy.

If you choose to go down this road and work with Neleen, you need to accept you are the key to changing your situation. You have to be honest and do the hard work but in the knowledge that you will have the tools to manage the situations you find yourself in independently.

I cannot recommend Neleen enough. Her patient and professional approach were what I needed and resulted in improving both my personal and professional life."

"For anyone who feels as though at some point they might have lost their way, want to improve their self-awareness and strengthen their mindset, Neleen is perfect for you. She is an amazing listener, empathetic and extremely professional. I feel lucky and blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Neleen. The outcomes and results really do speak for themselves."
