Hello , I'm Sheila Thomson, a fully trained and registered hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner and Life Coach. Empowering people is what I'm passionate about.
At Elderslie Hypnotherapy the focus is on YOU as an individual and how we can work with you to make the aspects of your life better. No matter who you are where you're from or what your personal circumstances are you can change from the inside out to become the person you want to be. I can help you overcome the blocks that are stopping you walking the path you want to be on whether that's becoming a non smoker, getting that job, being the person you feel happy to be. It is so much easier than you might think !
Young people are not immune to pressures and struggle too with life.
At Elderslie Hypnotherapy I help young people to see even though they cannot control a lot of their lives they can control how they feel in any given situation. Giving them this belief helps control the anxiety in their lives and gives them back power.
Training, qualifications & experience
DHP Acc.hyp , Post grad Dip Spec ED
GHSC accredited practitioner, GHR registered practitioner. CNHC registered
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)
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.
The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)
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.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
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.
