Patti Hemmings B.A. (Hons), Dip CBH, Dip Ac, Ad Dip PsyC, Dip Ref.
Since 1999 I have been practising as a Health & Well-being therapist offering Hypnotherapy, Acupuncture, Counselling, Aromatherapy massage and Reflexology.
I have a lovely treatment room (see virtual video below of my treatment room) in the centre of Harrogate, North Yorkshire with parking outside & nearby.
For those where access is a challenge, I also offer home visits in the local area. Skype or telephone consultations are available.
I love my work and I are so fortunate to have helped people create meaningful change in their life's. Whether it's anxiety, fear of flying, weight management, I have worked with individuals of all ages and backgrounds, including teenagers, young people to those in their later years who are experiencing anxiety, phobias and fears, smoking cessation, weight loss, or who want to change a particular behaviour.
Please see below 3 videos of client personal experiences of Hypnotherapy, Counselling & Acupuncture.
My aim is to offer a warm, caring, confidential and supportive environment that recognises that you are unique and that any treatment will be tailored around your needs and preferences. Each session offers coaching, support and a hypnosis session. You will be encouraged to really relax and start to learn new ways of thinking and behaving.
I often suggest to clients that we record the hypnosis session on their mobile phone, so in-between sessions they can listen to the recording (ideally daily) which increases their motivation and the effectiveness of the hypnosis sessions.
I originally trained to be a Physiotherapist and for many years I worked as a director of a community based charity which offered counselling, day care, advice service and other local support to those with mental health problems and/or physical disabilities.
I have two beautiful grown up daughters who I am immensely proud of, one who lives in Sydney.
I have a great love of animals, travel and are the very happy owner of Harley my adorable cockapoo.
