Hi I'm Suzy. As a registered Clinical Hypnotherapist and Certified Postnatal Practitioner, I help my clients to work through difficult issues, gain control and the confidence to make positive changes in their lives.
Hypnotherapy is a wonderful and hugely effective way to help people to identify and alter beliefs that are no longer useful for them, access their own positive inner resources and gain a deeper understanding of themselves.
I am passionate about empowering my clients so that they feel excited for the future and more confident that they can navigate life's ups and downs. This is why I like to teach my clients practical tools and techniques that they can use by themselves after our therapy sessions have finished.
Some of the issues that I can help with are Anxiety, Depression, Postnatal mental health, IBS, Weight loss and Habit Breaking (including Stop Smoking) (but this list is not exhaustive).
If you would like to find out more about how Hypnotherapy at Luminous Mind can help you, please get in touch for an informal and obligation-free chat.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2015 at the London College of Clinical Hypnotherapy (certified by the University of West London), and a Certified Postnatal Practitioner in 2021 with Easibirthing.
I am in ongoing Psychotherapy training at the National College of Hypno-Psychotherapists and aim to qualify as a Hypno-Psychotherapist within the next 2 years.
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.
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.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Postnatal Depression, Postnatal Anxiety
In addition to the hours detailed, I do have some flexibility to run sessions during evenings and weekends if necessary.
