About me

*I am not currently accepting new clients. Please get in touch to be added to my waitlist for sessions starting in September 2022* 

Hello, my name is Sophie and I'm a cognitive hypnotherapist, and the founder of The Inner, a mind health and wellbeing practice based in Ealing and Covent Garden in London.

What I do
I work with a range of people to help them to live happier and fuller lives, by guiding them to connect with their unconscious, so they can free themselves from patterns of behaviour that may be holding them back. I believe speaking to the unconscious is the key to eliciting change.

What is Cognitive Hypnotherapy?
Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a modern, holistic and flexible approach influenced by cognitive theory, neuroscience, evolutionary psychology and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). It utilises a range of techniques and tools, including Timeline Regression, EMI (Eye Movement Integration), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique also known as Tapping), among many others to equip and empower the mind to resolve and fix its own issues.

How I can help
I support my clients on a range of issues that may be affecting the way they think and feel about things in their life, from stress and anxiety to negative behaviour and habits, including issues related to confidence and low self-esteem. Issues that may have left them feeling stuck and unable to move forwards with their lives.

I think you'll be surprised about the different things I could help with, and how quickly you start to observe change in how you think and feel, after we start working together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been fortunate to graduate with a Cognitive Hypnotherapy Diploma (DipCHyp, HPD) from the world renowned Quest Institute at Regent's University, London under the tutelage of its founder Trevor Silvester.

I am also a certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) master practitioner; a HypnoBirthing® Child Birth Educator (HBCE) and a certified Mental Health First Aider (MHFA). Outside of my practice, I work as a crisis volunteer for the UK's first free, confidential, 24/7 text support service.

I am a member of the National Council of Hypnotherapists (NCH) and Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy Professional Association (QCHPA) and I am bound by their code of ethics.

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.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

I teach the Mongan Method of HypnoBirthing, which was developed by the founder of HypnoBirthing and the HypnoBirthing Institute, Marie Mongan. It is widely considered the original HynoBirthing method. It is based on the simple premise that birth is a natural, normal and human experience and women’s bodies are created to conceive, nurture and birth. For more information, visit

Further information

Working together
I only work with a handful of clients at any one time, and before I agree to work with you we will have a conversation to see whether I am the right person to coach and support you. My goal is to ensure that you progress, which is why I only work with clients if I feel confident that I can help elicit positive and lasting change.  

You wouldn't buy a pair of shoes before checking it fits first - so the call is for my clients as much as it is for me, you need to be sure that you feel 100% certain I can give you the help and support you need to achieve your goals.

What my clients say about me
"I went to see Sophie at a time in my life that I just felt at a bit of a crossroad and needed some guidance. She was fantastic and helped me find clarity and direction without any judgement or bias. Plus - she’s absolutely lovely". - Emma, events director, West London

"I can't thank Sophie enough for helping me understand and unlock what was holding me back. She listened, challenged by beliefs and guided me towards making new healthier ones." - Alison, teacher and mother of three, North London

"The sessions I had with Sophie were really valuable in finding methods to ease anxiety. She is a really warm person and a great listener." - Louise, research associate and humanitarian, West London.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair access is available at The Space in Ealing, and 9 Adam Street in Covent Garden only.
