About me

  • Do you ever feel stuck or out of control?
  • Is it time to say goodbye to stress, anxiety, panic attacks or phobias?
  • Do you want to sleep better or change the way you react and respond to things?
  • Do you want to feel relaxed, calm and listened to?

Hello, I am Rosie and I am passionate about well-being and empowering you as an individual to achieve your goals.

I am based in Tilehurst, Reading and I work with adults, and children and young people from the age of 5 years.

I believe that we all have the ability to grow, heal and change, regardless of what we have experienced in life.  

I believe that everyone is unique and that people are diverse and complex. I place a strong emphasis on building a trusting, supportive and caring therapeutic relationship with you in order to create a firm foundation for the work we will do together.

It is so easy for us all to get stuck in bad habits or behaviours because our subconscious mind creates a programme of future responses, based on our past experiences. For example, if you experienced a minor car crash as a child, your subconscious mind holds the way that made you feel and can repeat and even magnify this feeling, every time you get into a car.

Through hypnotherapy I can help you to create new, more helpful patterns and programmes of thought. 

When working with you, I will use relaxation techniques to help you reach a state where the conscious part of your mind is relaxed and your subconscious part is more open to suggestion. I will then talk gently to your subconscious to help encourage the change you’re looking for.

The approach I take will depend entirely on you, your personal situation and your needs. 

I can help with:

  • habit breaking
  • sleep issues
  • phobias
  • stress
  • anxiety
  • weight loss
  • Relaxation and Positive Thinking
  • Improving Self-confidence and Self-esteem

and much more

Hypnotherapy for Children

I have over 20 years experience of working with children and young people and offer hypnotherapy for a wide range of issues, from the age of 5 upwards.

Children tend to learn hypnosis more easily than adults because as part of their natural development they are imagining, fantasising and pretending many times a day, on a daily basis. You may have noticed how easily entranced children become by stories, TV, tablets or mobile phones.

Hypnotherapy for children draws upon their imagination to nurture characteristics such as self-esteem and confidence. It provides a forum to explore their issues, seeing them from a new perspective. It provides children with resilience and coping strategies and allows them to see the issues that they have from a new perspective.  In short, I provide them with the storyline of their own adventure, which you can then practice with them at home.

I can help with:

  • bedwetting (enuresis)
  • picky eating
  • phobias
  • stress
  • anxiety
  • addictions, such as to their mobile phone or devices
  • exam nerves
  • confidence

and much more.

To get started all you need to do is to give me a call or drop me an email. We can arrange a mutually convenient time to have a brief introductory telephone conversation in advance of you beginning therapy. During this time we can talk about what you would like to achieve with hypnotherapy and it will give you the opportunity to ask any questions.  If you would then like to proceed, then we will organise your first session.

I would love to help. Please get in touch.
