About me

Do you want to change behaviours or habits which are affecting your life negatively? If the answer is yes, then therapy could be the solution to your problems! Book a FREE initial consultation today!

My name is Therese Hygate and I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist. My specialisms are dealing with anxiety and stress, smoking cessation and weight management including Virtual Gastric Band Therapy although I work with many other problem areas too, so please do not hesitate to ask.

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis and individual client-based therapeutic work to identify and deal with issues which are troubling you. Every client is unique and therefore every session will be devised to cater specifically to your needs and desired goals.

It is important for you to feel comfortable and secure at all times. I offer a FREE initial consultation to ensure that all your questions are answered. Please contact me today on 07511077252 or email me as above.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis and Psychotherapy and Advanced Psychoanalysis
  • Neuro Linguistic Programming
  • Bachelor of Education Degree                                                                                        
  • Brain Working Recursive Therapy (adv.)

I studied the Essex Institute's curriculum written by the illustrious Terence Watts, an Advanced Hypnotherapist. From this, I gained a Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis and Psychotherapy with Advanced Psychoanalysis, and his insightful teachings have given me an excellent bank of knowledge and resources which I successfully use on a regular basis with clients.

I am a Licentiate of the APHP (The Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy) and a registered member of the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.)

I also have gained a qualification in Neuro Linguistic Programming. NLP identifies what makes people brilliant in activities and compares that to those who only perform satisfactorily in the same tasks. By modelling those who are considered to be experts, you can use their ideas to achieve and enhance your own results. It can be particularly effective when preparing for or conducting interviews, appraisals, presentations, negotiations and coaching techniques.

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.

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.
