About me

I am a professionally trained Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist and Founder of the Maxcebo® Transformational Therapy. I'm trained in NLP, Life Coaching, EMDR and Mindfulness. I love helping people to discover who they are authentically, and how best to achieve the life they can truly value and desire to live.

My life hasn’t always been as wonderful as it is now and so I understand not only what it’s like to feel the grip of internal chaos but also what steps to take to live a more meaningful, happy and fulfilling life. I have experienced childhood trauma, homelessness, divorce and depression. Hypnotherapy changed my life many years ago and my healing journey brought me to my greatest joy, becoming a healing guide for others so they can live freely and peacefully, as we all intended to be.

I also love music and I have worked as a professional vocalist-musician in the music industry for over 20 years both in the UK and abroad. I still tour with Chris Norman (from Smokie) as a member of his band.  As a creative I totally empathise with how the creative mind often sees the world a little differently and how best to navigate through the difficulties this mindset can often experience. 

I like to tackle things from a different perspective, with a holistic approach, individually tailored to each client, as I believe everyone of us are truly beautiful and unique.

How Advanced Hypnotherapy Can Help You

Hypnotherapy is a talking therapy with the added advantage of using hypnosis to change subconscious beliefs or perceptions that are holding you back from living the life you want to live. Whether you are suffering with anxiety, weight issues, insecurities, relationship problems or any issue that is causing you to feel stuck, lost or negative in some way, Advanced Hypnotherapy is solution focused and can transform your thinking, empowering you to take back control so you can live your life on your own terms.   

What To Expect In The Session

Once we have got to know each other a little, we will have a chat about where you are in your life and what is bothering you. We'll look at what you would like to change and why, as this will help us to work together to find the outcome you want. I will explain the treatment plan we will use to get the results you want and you can ask questions at any time. I will then ask you to sit comfortably on a supportive chair and we will begin with the hypnosis. 

What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is not mind control. It's a very natural phenomena often referred to as 'trance' that occurs when we are highly focused on our inner awareness to the exclusion of all else. Everyday trance states are part of the human experience, such as becoming absorbed in a good book or movie, driving down a familiar road with no conscious recollection of doing so, when in meditation, or when undertaking a repetitive or a creative activity. Hypnosis is used in therapy to induce a trance with the use of imagery and suggestion. This enables the therapist to guide your thoughts towards the outcome you desire, reasoning and suggesting that any thoughts holding you back from this outcome, are dissolved and replaced by positive, empowering beliefs that strengthen and support your mind/body system. Hypnosis is very relaxing and is a welcome relief for anxiety sufferers or those experiencing tension and stress.  

The Way I Work

I work both online (via Zoom) and in person at my clinic in Chorley. I offer 1:1's or group therapy sessions which can be purchased as singular sessions or as a discounted bulk buy. Most issues require a minimum of 3-6 sessions however during the FREE consultation, you will be advised on how many sessions you will likely need for the results you are looking to achieve. 

When working in person, the hypnosis will be done in the session and you will have an opportunity to record the hypnosis on your phone to listen again at your leisure. When working online, you will be given a professionally recorded hypnosis audio after your session.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please message or email and I will be more than happy to answer them. 

Reviews

Great experience
Game changing! Rachel is a true savant and empath, her insight has been an amazing journey. I have recommended her services without hesitation to many…Craig Snider.

Quick, Permanent Results!
Rachel inspired confidence right off the bat. She has an authentic, maternal listening style which engenders trust and comfort. This is important so as to inform the next step in preparation of creating the tape. You want quick results? Do a nightly Sadhana - it requires the discipline of daily commitment to be fully effective. It’s a pleasure to be soothed by Rachel’s lilting English brogue leading my subconscious mind toward positive changes. Very quick, permanent results. I’m a big fan!!! Gia Leve.


I approached Rachel a few months ago in order to use her Hypnotherapy services. I wanted to get to the bottom of some limiting beliefs which I know have been holding me back from fully engaging with the passion I have for music and in particular guitar playing. By the second session she had nailed the reason to the point that I am now well on my journey to really fullfilling my dream of mastering the instrument. Thank you Rachel. AL

Just wonderful!
I have had three sessions with Rachel, my mum has had two. Its been a magical experience. I feel reconnected with myself. Rachel is so intuitive and so easy to talk to. Its just an amazing healing experience. My mum was dealing with chronic pain. She's now so much better and writing her book. Nabeela
