Sandra Churchill HPD, DHP, SFBT Sup (Hyp), MNCH (Acc), AfSFH, CNHC Reg, UKASFP
I am a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist and Clinical Hypnotherapy Supervisor with clinics in Warminster and Melksham. I am also a former Senior Lecturer for CPHT Bournemouth.
I offer sessions either face to face or online.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses practical, modern and well researched strategies to help people make significant, positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time. Working with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I look at what the client wants to achieve rather than on the problem(s) that prompted them to seek change. The approach focuses on the present and future and not on the past.
Hypnosis is a totally natural state of mind. When under hypnosis you will feel very relaxed, just like that wonderful feeling when you are tired lying in your bed and you are so overcome with comfort that you wish the moment could last forever.
Research shows that there is more evidence for hypnotherapy than any other complementary therapy by using hypnosis people can perform prodigious feats of willpower and self healing.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapist/Psychotherapist and graduated from the prestigious Clifton Practice in Bristol, one of the leading training centres in the UK for Hypnotherapy/Psychotherapy. I am also a Clinical Hypnotherapy Supervisor which enables me to supervise other hypnotherapists and a former Senior Lecturer for CPHT Bournemouth.
I am a registered member of National Council for Hypnotherapy, The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and am fully accredited and insured.
I am also registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) which ensures that I meet national standards and abide by a strict code of conduct, performance and ethics.
I currently have clinics in Warminster and Melksham.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
National Council for Hypnotherapy
The National Council for Hypnotherapy holds one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists in the United Kingdom and strives to maintain the highest standards among its members.
There is an agreed Code of Conduct, an established Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure and all members are obliged to maintain comprehensive Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance, maintain regular CPD (continuing professional development) hours, and attend Supervision when needed.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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
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.
At the initial consultation I explain how the brain works and what Hypnosis is, I take notes and explain why people suffer in the way they do and what we can do about it. This session is likely to last for approximately 1 hour and is charged at £50.
All subsequent sessions will last for up to one hour and the number of sessions required will vary for each individual. The follow up sessions are charged at £50 per session.
9 - 12 weekly sessions for anxiety/depression/confidence etc
3 - 4 weekly sessions for fears and phobias
Smoking cessation - 1 two hour session (willpower is required) £150
Sandra offers daytime and evening appointments.
