Sandra Wilson BSc DSFH HPD CNHC (reg)
I'm a fully qualified hypnotherapist, having gained my Diploma in Solution-focused hypnotherapy and psychotherapy at the prestigious Clifton Practice, in Bristol.
I have helped many clients with conditions such as anxiety, anger, depression, insomnia, phobias, addictions, weight management, pain management, relationship problems, and low self-esteem. I am particularly interested in helping you to achieve your goals and be the successful happy person you deserve to be. Perhaps you have a negative perception of yourself and what you are capable of - it is a common problem that can be easily overcome with a little patience and commitment.
Because my focus is on helping you to achieve your goals rather than focusing on why you have your problem, you could make change happen more quickly. My clients find that hypnotherapy is both relaxing and very empowering. I will help you to gain a better insight into how your mind works, and how subconscious processes in the brain can be accessed and changed for your benefit. I can help you to gain control over your "fight or flight" system which is often like an oversensitive car alarm in highly anxious people. There has been a lot of research over the years which demonstrates the power of clinical hypnotherapy on all the conditions I work with. In simple terms, hypnotherapy can help you change the way you think about yourself and what you are capable of. It could change your life in so many positive ways!

I am committed to offering a high quality service to my clients in a safe and confidential space. I practice at home in Brislington, Bristol, and at my clinic in Montpelier on Tuesday evenings. I also offer an online one-to-one service for those who cannot travel easily, and an online group relaxation aimed at women going through the menopause.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a 1st Degree and a Post-Graduate Degree from Bristol University in addition to my Diploma in Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) and a Hypnotherapy Practitioner's Diploma (HPD). This is benchmarked at Level 4 by OFQUAL. I am a member of the Association for Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and the National Hypnotherapy Council (NCH). I have membership of CNCH pending, which is a professional register approved by the Professional Standards Authority. I abide by the codes of these membership bodies, and undertake regular supervision and continual professional development.
I have recently completed additional CPD's (continuous professional development training) in working with children, and OCD.
My background is in advice and management, and I have also recently spent a year working as a volunteer on a helpline that supports women who self-injure. I came to hypnotherapy after experiencing and overcoming particularly distressing bouts of insomnia: I received hypnotherapy and subsequently discovered the power of my own mind. I changed my unhelpful thinking patterns around sleep, learned to relax properly, improved some bad habits and started sleeping better. I find the human brain a constant source of amazement - we are capable of so much more than we think we are!
