Thank you for visiting ‘ C L E A R S T E P S H Y P N O T H E R A P Y’

YORK HAS MANY HYPNOTHERAPISTS........SO WHY CHOOSE ME?
I am a published author, 'A Creative Guide to Therapeutic Metaphor', endorsed by renowned hypnotherapist Lynda Hudson. I am a contributor to the Hypnotherapy Journal, (published articles pictured below, please scroll to bottom of page). I also tutor other therapists in therapeutic metaphor and am a qualified Kinetic Shift Practitioner.
I offer completely individualised and targeted therapy:
First Appointment: We talk in depth about your issue, belief systems, (what makes you tick), I then use what you tell me to get to the root of the issue.
Therapy is all about you: My unique approach reflects this. I tailor bespoke therapy sessions to each client, creating an experience which is completely different to listening to a generic CD, watching You-tube, or being 'categorised' by therapists who repeat the same generic solutions to all common issues regardless of the patient.
Each session is digitally recorded: Enabling you to repeat the session at home between appointments.
Value for money: I do not work to a strict timetable. You are unique, as is my approach. I place successful outcome and quality of service above financial reward, supporting you between appointments by supplying digital recordings of each and every session. My reviews, detailed further down the page, speak for themselves.
A chat costs nothing: You may be wondering if hypnotherapy will suit you, particularly if you're a little sceptical, vulnerable, or lacking confidence right now. Why not put yourself at ease by calling for a no obligation chat before deciding whether to progress.
A Comment on Fees: When exploring profiles and comparing fees on this site, be sure to research what’s on offer. Remember it’s better to pay a sensible fee for a successful outcome in only 3 sessions than pay less per session but make little progress after several. Ask if recordings are given, in my view these are vital in allowing repetition of therapy at home between appointments. In comparison - Consider an average massage is priced circa £55 for 50 minutes.
My Background.... in empathetic communication........ I am an intuitive therapist historically I taught communication skills and creativity to special needs, enabling me to build strong foundations in effective communication.
Nowadays I focus full-time on clinical hypnotherapy, working from the relaxed private setting of my garden therapy space having private parking, located off the A59 between York Wetherby and Harrogate, (please scroll down to view image of the therapy room).
In my 50’s I can offer a balanced perspective born of personal experience. I have overcome one or two of the challenges listed below, in particular 'fear of flying' and have been an appreciative client of hypnotherapy.
Dedication to continued professional development ensures my approach to therapy remains fresh, I am continually upgrading my skills and expertise.
YOUR 'INNER VOICE' CAN BE YOUR BEST FRIEND.......OR YOUR WORST ENEMY............DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK!
We will work together to re-awaken the best friend.........helping you to help yourself!
What's in a Recording?
I provide Digital Recordings of each and every session, incorporating my voice and gentle therapeutic background sound. The recordings enable you to re-listen to your session frequently, helping you stay completely focused between visits, reducing the overall cost of your therapy in the long run. I see only two clients daily, my time is yours, it takes as long as it takes!

NB: If your issue requires expertise beyond my ability, I will be honest enough to refer you.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN?
We spend a little time discussing your issue and feelings and beliefs in relation to it, you can elect not to tell me painful detail if you wish as we can deal with this using metaphor. The amount of time spent depends on complexity of issue. I will then guide you into a gentle relaxation making positive suggestions in line with your personality to boost positive subconscious thought process. You simply relax, wear comfortable headphones, reclining fully or slightly, gentle therapeutic background sounds accompany my voice. Following the session you have a refreshing drink and go home with a recording to help embed suggestion at home. The recording is of particular value to those who relax more within a home environment. Depending on the issue sessions vary, (generally between one and four).
