Samantha Bowley Dip Hyp Psych, GHR, CNHC Reg
Hi and welcome,
Are you feeling stuck and can't seem to find a way to break free from that problem? Do you want to take steps to change your life for a better future but you don't know how? I help people just like you to become "unstuck" and find solutions so you can facilitate long lasting change in your life and go towards a better future. Maybe it's helping you to gain freedom from stress, anxiety, panic attacks or depression or perhaps improve on relationship problems, resolve a phobia or help you improve your chances of conception. Whatever the issue, identifying and changing subconscious patterns of behaviour which are no longer serving you for something more helpful in your life is a game changer.
After personal experience of feeling highly anxious for long periods of time, and then suffering with fertility issues for over ten years, I recognised how Hypnotherapy had been THE turning point with both issues. I noticed the HUGE difference in the way I felt and how I was empowered to overcome these problems. I now help other people to overcome their difficulties and tailor my Hypnotherapy sessions specifically to you to bring about your desired outcomes.
How long will the appointment last?
I allow one and a half hours for the first session and one hour for further sessions.
What will happen during the session?
The session is informal. We will chat about what your intention and goals are, take a brief history and a general gathering of information about your resources and then facilitate the changes you want.
How many sessions will I need?
It can take only one session with issues such as a one-off phobia or specific event anxiety. For other issues such as long-term high anxiety states and depression for example it may take several sessions but many of my clients’ remark they can notice a difference in how they feel from the very first session.
For multiple sessions, appointments may initially begin as weekly and may soon develop into sessions with longer intervals between appointments as you develop the skills and understanding to manage your own issues.
I am an empathetic practitioner, who strives to deliver professional highly skilled, ethical practice. You can be sure I will work to the best of my ability to ensure you get freedom from your presenting issues.

The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
I can help with a wide range of issues. Due to my own experience of the problems I experienced in the past trying to conceive I have a special interest in helping those who are trying to have a baby. It took me ten years to finally become pregnant and I wonder how many years I could have saved myself if I had known the impact of the mind on fertility. I am obviously not able to guarantee a couple will become pregnant. I can help to find problem patterns of behaviour, clear trauma and maximise fertility chances.
By using mind-body approaches and Hypnotherapy I can help to identify and address the mental and emotional factors which may be affecting fertility as well as help to reduce the negative effects of stress. I also teach self help tools and techniques to empower those going through their fertility journey.
I offer a Complementary 20 minute Consultation with no obligation. This means I can gain an understanding of what is troubling you and advise how I can help and you can decide if I am the right person for you to proceed with.
