Valerie Taylor-Walker, Earlsfield Hypnotherapy
I am a certified and insured hypnotherapist based in Earlsfield, South London. I run my practice from my home and am available in the evenings, after 4;30pm, and at weekends. Also available for online therapy over Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp.
Having been a carer most of my life whilst working full time and raising a family, I am acutely aware of the many struggles and challenges people face on a daily basis. Chronic stress can have a severe negative impact on both our physical health and mental well being and I am particularly interested in helping people to regain control over their life, both by managing the way they handle stress and stress-related illnesses and anxieties, as well as improving their confidence and self esteem.

Information about health conditions (*)

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
