WHY choose me?
I am an experienced therapist, a qualified Counsellor, registered with The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I believe I offer a therapeutic relationship with my clients which is professional yet nurturing, a safe space for you to overcome whatever issue you want to resolve.
I work from my own Private Practice in Hutton, Weston Super Mare. We have a spacious, comfortable and accessible therapy room, with beautiful views over the countryside. There are many proven therapeutic benefits from spending time in Nature and so I hope that you will enjoy the journey to and from your sessions nearly as much as the sessions themselves.
I regularly update my knowledge of therapeutic practice and so strive to offer you the best service possible. Helping you to achieve your desired results in a relatively short time frame.
Therapy sessions are generally 60-90 minutes.
You are never rushed out of the door, if you feel that your personal circumstances require a longer appointment, this can be catered for with prior notice.
Ongoing support While you are a client you will receive ongoing support in between sessions if needed, via text/phone/Facebook/email.
I pride myself at the level of service and support that I offer my clients, It is my belief that if you provide someone with the environment and support that they need to grow then they will flourish.
I qualified as a counsellor over 20 years ago and worked for many years with people in addiction. I discovered how passionate I am about helping people overcome obstacles in their lives, (real and imagined) being part of a support system to empower individuals to get back in control of their lives is extremely rewarding.
I have personally benefited from both Counselling and Hypnotherapy, my preferred model being Solution Focused hypnotherapy, this is a modern, well researched model which enables individuals to achieve the changes they want fairly quickly and without having to dwell on painful past experience, In fact Hypnosis, the state of trance, is extremely relaxing and pleasurable, just like having a beautiful daydream.
The majority of clients that I see are suffering with anxiety, Relationship issues, overthinking, self confidence, stress, fears, phobias or feelings that they are just not in control anymore. Their relief is almost tangible when I explain how their experience is quite common, they are not the only one, that with an understanding of how their brain is working in response to their emotions and a few realistic steps, they can easily achieve what they would like to achieve.
It is important to realise that Hypnotherapy is not mind control, You remain in control at all times. I can not remove someones free will. I work with you, at your pace, for you to discover the right solutions for you. It is important that you want to make the change, are prepared to be open and honest with yourself and willing to make this investment in yourself to work towards your desired future.
Here is a review from a client;
- "I have had a course of 10 sessions with this lovely lady . At the start I was in tears thinking there was no help for me . I wanted help with my sleeping . Becky made me understand why I was not sleeping , I had so much going on in my head . She has helped me to understand myself and to change bad habits and be a happier positive person . Things have changed in my life without me even noticing . I used to use wine as a crutch to help me deal with my marriage breakdown and the stress of being a single mother . Now I still enjoy a glass of wine but drink half as much as I used to. Their are loads of little things that have changed for the better . It's lovely to go to bed and wake up refreshed . Really can not thank Becky enough and so reassuring to know she is there if I need her . Thank you xx"
Solution Focused Psychotherapy is future oriented
Solution Focused Therapy techniques are designed to reduce anxiety and calm the mind.
As the name suggests it focuses on solutions for the future, rather than analysing problems of the past.
Provided you are willing to make changes to the way you think, the therapy can be highly effective in relieving the symptoms of anxiety and stress.
I work from The Hypnotherapy Zone at The Shambhala Practice in Hutton, surrounded by open countryside and glorious views. There is plenty of parking outside and a warm friendly welcome awaiting you inside.

The initial consultation (£40) This session is used to assess what you want to achieve, we will discuss how hypnotherapy can help you and how many sessions you are likely to need. (Generally 8-12)
Subsequent Hypnotherapy sessions involve much more than Hypnosis. During the first part of each session we’ll talk about the progress you have made and I’ll be encouraging you to express yourself positively, focusing on solutions rather than dwelling on problems.I’ll help you to imagine your preferred future, a future where you have a more useful perspective on the quality of your life. I’ll then guide you into a relaxed state of Hypnosis so that we can consolidate what we have discussed.
