About me

I am an experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist working in Farnham, Surrey, and I practise Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.

This therapy is a modern combination of Psychotherapy and Hypnosis that can help to deal with a range of problems easily and effectively.

We will focus on what you want to achieve, and we will not look at the past or the problem, but concentrate om moving you forward to your preferred future.
Hypnosis is an important part of the therapy, and you will experience a light, relaxing trance, such as we all do every day naturally - when we are driving, watching TV, or running. You will always be in control and aware of what you are doing.

This form of hypnotherapy draws on techniques also used in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Some of these are very useful and can be used by the client between sessions to help them.

Hypnotherapy sessions can be experienced very successfully online with Zoom, for clients who cannot come to my home. In the present climate with Covid 19. this is very useful as we try to maintain social distancing and Self Isolation. If you need help with this way of communicating do get in touch - it is very simple and will not involve any extra cost to you.

I am also trained to help people with PTSD using The Muss Trauma Rewind Therapy. This is a simple but highly effective technique to deal with the distress and anxiety caused by PTSD. This disorder is caused by the brain failing to process the frightening memory of an event, so the sufferer experiences unwanted and intrusive thoughts about what has occurred, sometimes for many years. The Muss Rewind Technique quickly and easily resolves this problem in one, possibly two sessions, so the sufferer can resume normal life again. You can find more information about this remarkable therapy on my website.

I am happy to say I have had much success with helping clients resolve their problems and these are some comments from two of them:

"A friend recommended that I should see Ros as I was suffering with social anxieties. Ros has a wonderful manner, caring, friendly and positive, she instantly made me feel comfortable, she is professional and non-judgemental.  The sessions with her have allowed me to regain my self-confidence and life again. I now feel confident when talking to new people and can conduct myself in a more professional manner in business meetings by staying calm and in control, even the tension in my neck and back from stress has completely diminished! Ros has put the smile back on my face and I am forever grateful."

"You couldn’t meet a kinder more gentle person.
I went to see Ros as a friend had told me how much she had helped her.  I have had many issues over my life – and lack of confidence comes highest on the list, closely followed by anxiety, stress and insomnia.
Ros doesn’t solve your problems for you – you don’t go back into minute detail about all your issues.  She guides and teaches you to help yourself.  With the aid of her lovely hypnotherapy and her relaxation CD , I’m able to sleep well.  Something I haven’t been able to do for many years.  Ros promotes relaxation and encourages you to concentrate on the good things rather than dwell on the not so good.
I would recommend anyone to see Ros.  Her gentle encouragement and sensitive caring manner are calming in themselves.”

In our sessions we will work towards helping you achieve the goals that you set for yourself, and I will enable you to become confident and empowered to take control of your life and enjoy it.

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

I have also successfully helped clients with:

Nail Biting, Needle Phobia, Alcohol Dependency and OCD.

Additional information

The first consultation Is a preliminary session where I can get to know you and explain how our sessions will help you, and how the brain works, and what we can do to help you achieve the changes you need to make. I will also be able to give you an idea of how many sessions you may need for your therapy.
This session lasts about half an hour. You will receive a free recording to listen to every night during your therapy.

Subsequent sessions last for about 50 minutes and are equally divided between talking together about your future and the trance work - the relaxing part!

Further information

I run very successful courses for those who want to lose weight and who struggle to maintain a healthy eating pattern. It helps participants understand how their brain works, and how to take control of their thinking around food, their eating and their weight.

A Mindset Approach to Weight Loss is a two session course of 1.5 hours each time. The course canbe one - one, or in groups of up to four people. and includes a Power Point presentation and some hypnosis. It is fun, as well as learning some serious science stuff, and the groups are mutually supportive.

This course can be experienced successfully online on Zoom as can my therapy.

Contact me for further details if you are interested!

I also offer Relaxation Sessions for those who need help to relax and unwind. These sessions are 30 minutes long and are great for helping you to experience deep relaxation for the body and mind. We need to relax regularly in order for our bodies to repair and restore, and for our minds to process our thoughts and feelings. These sessions are a great opportunity to chill out and do absolutely nothing! You will feel wonderfully relaxed afterwards!

I work from home on weekdays and evenings, in my quiet peaceful room overlooking farmland.
