Tamsin Denbigh - Specialist in Anxiety and Sleep Problems
Hello. I am a clinical hypnotherapist offering online sessions, and a local clinic at Cheddar Medical Centre.
I have a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy from the Clifton Practice of Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT) in Bristol and am a registered member of the AfSFH (Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy) and CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council).
I work with adults, teenagers and children (age 8+) across a range of conditions. Hypnotherapy can help both quickly and calmly to reduce the amount of stress and anxiety we produce in our everyday lives.
I will support you to understand how your mind works and how you can stop thinking negatively by gaining control over our thoughts, feelings and emotions. The sessions are positive as we look to the present and future rather than focusing on past problems to determine how you want your life to be going forwards.
I first became interested in hypnotherapy 5 years ago after a zip wiring experience triggered a fear of heights that then triggered similar anxiety symptoms when driving a car over bridges or heights. Hypnotherapy helped me take control of my thoughts and, most importantly, keep me behind the wheel.
My hypnotherapy training has taught me the all important link between anxiety and sleep - how one can very much impact the other - and how you don't need to accept that you will always be a bad sleeper...you can do something about it.
Understanding how your mind works is key to the process of hypnotherapy - something that we should all know about to make us feel more confident and empowered that we can make change in our lives.
"Tamsin has helped our family in just 8 short weeks. A complete turnaround in how our teenager feels and how we support them".
"I had no real understanding of hypnotherapy prior to the sessions and I found the science behind how your mind works really interesting.Tamsin's reassuring manner instantly put me at ease and the sense of calmness and wellbeing after each session was immense - like a wonderful brain massage. I now feel I can achieve anything I want to and no longer worry about things that don't matter or aren't important."
"Tamsin helped me enormously to keep calm in times of great stress and to put things into perspective. I used the Relaxation Download every night to get to sleep and still use it now after I have finished the course."
"When I heard that Tamsin might be able to help with my sleep issues I was keen to give her sessions a go. Having tried many other remedies I was sceptical, but I have to say that working alongside Tamsin has genuinely improved my sleep.I have gained so much understanding about why I struggle with sleep. Tamsin has also given me lots of strategies to help going forward and I use these techniques on a daily basis. In addition, Tamsin's sessions have helped me to deal with other areas of stress. I cannot recommend her support highly enough."
"I have been a social smoker since I was a teenager. One session of hypnotherapy with Tamsin did the trick. She listened sensitively and we explored the reasons why I still smoked and gave me the understanding to say no to my habit."
