About me

Rachael Slack, DHP

Diploma in Advanced Hypnosis and Hypno-analysis

Diploma in Hypnosis and Psychotherapy

Advanced BWRT® Practitioner  & Life coach & Anxiety specialist

Studied Psychology at the Open University

I was fortunate enough to train on a one-to-one study programme with Terence Watts, C.G.I. Principal and founder of The Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnosis & Psychotherapy. Terence is a renowned Advanced Hypnotherapist. He is also the author of many books, including ‘Warriors, Settlers & Nomads’ - hailed as 'a work of genius' and the Award Winning Easy Quit Smoking Programme.

My studies ensured a high level of professional training and  ongoing one-to-one supervision and mentoring alongside further advanced and continued professional study. Terence is also the originator of B.W.R.T. ® and has trained me personally through to the advanced Level 3, coaching and dealing with depression.

For some 10 years now I have been in regular practice with several 1000's of hours of client experience behind me and incorporating cutting edge techniques to help you to achieve your goals.  Working frequently with anxiety, depression, low confidence and self worth, addictions I feel confident I can assist with the majority of problems that my clients present to me with.

Further advancement resulted in my receiving a licence to offer the Essex Institutes Professional Practitioner courses, in addition to running my busy practice in order to help those who wish to train in the area of Clinical Hypnotherapy become the very best they can be. For further details about training with the Milton Keynes School of Clinical Hypnosis, visit the website at www.mkschoolofclinicalhypnosis.co.uk

On a personal note I'm a keen athlete in long distance  events and have also earned a place in Team GB for age-group duathlon.  I continue to pursue this, although each year it gets more challenging:)

Please do get in touch for a free initial consultation. Rachael :)

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.

Further information

In these current times we are offering more online work than ever before.  Online consultations aren't new to my practice, indeed, I spend a lot of time each week working with clients in different time zones via skype/zoom/facetime, even Messenger via Facebook can work very well.  Please don't let the current social distancing stop you from getting in touch.  So much good work and assistance can still be done via online platforms.  If you have any concerns or queries, please just ask.
