Hi, I'm Tracey, a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and I am passionate about helping my clients to overcome their issues and achieve their goals, using an individualised approach and in a realistic and personally achievable way.
Hypnotherapy is effective for all ages and extremely useful for children and young people who may prefer this approach to a more analytical style of therapy. The therapy is collaborative, gentle and relatively short term in nature and all I ask for from my clients is a willingness to change!
I work with children, teens and adults to help them cope with and move on from anxiety and stress related conditions, low mood, poor sleep, lack of confidence and phobias.
The Solution Focused Hypnotherapy model uses talking therapy techniques (Solution Focused Brief Therapy, CBT and NLP) combined with clinical hypnosis. "Solution Focused" means that we focus on your future, where you would like to be - and not where you wouldn't. We can't change what's happened in the past, so we focus on what we can change - your present and your future.
Please message me to arrange a free, no obligation chat to find out how I may help.

Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) was set up to provide information about a modern form of Hypnotherapy and its associated benefits to members of the public. The main aim of the AfSFH is to spread awareness of the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care.
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.
National Council for Hypnotherapy
The National Council for Hypnotherapy holds one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists in the United Kingdom and strives to maintain the highest standards among its members.
There is an agreed Code of Conduct, an established Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure and all members are obliged to maintain comprehensive Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance, maintain regular CPD (continuing professional development) hours, and attend Supervision when needed.
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.

Free initial telephone session
Initial Consultation - £30

Some online evening sessions are available
* Covid * update - I am now seeing clients face to face again with all necessary precautions in place. If you prefer to conduct sessions on Zoom, I am also continuing with this way of working - or we can do both!
