Prue Whelan, MSc, GQHP, CNHC Hypnotherapist
Fully Qualified Hypnotherapist, having the privilege to train with many outstanding professionals in this field. Additionally I hold an MSc in Integrated Healthcare offering the optimum blend of clinical hypnotherapy and the holistic approach.
Hypnosis can bring benefit to a wide range of problems; you know your own solutions, just tap into your sub-conscious to make the next step
My passion for hypnotherapy grew from an interest in people, their medical problems, and the mind-body link. (I first worked in the NHS in the pioneering sub-fertility clinic of Kings College Hospital back in the mid 1970's). My interest in the human body has never wavered, though since fully appreciating the power of hypnosis I have expanded the potential of my practise as a hypnotherapist. I keep my qualifications as a Healthcare Professional (HCPC details available on request), but also enjoy less structured and creative approaches to health and well being. To work with individuals is to enter their world and see through their eyes.
Extensive in-depth training including as a Certified Master Hypnotherapist with the International Association of Professional Hypnotists. I regularly attend courses to keep up-to-date with the latest techniques and specialisations.
My website gives full details and will tell you more about my clinic & me, take your time before trusting your sub-conscious mind to another. Feel welcome to call (in clinic hours) and briefly discuss your issues. As well as health matters, I have a wealth of experience in a wide range of issues. I offer a gentle, listening, therapeutic approach and find hypnotherapy an invaluable tool.
My clinic has been in Bickley for more than twenty years and is self-contained within my home, on the ground floor, with easy parking.
