Vicki Crane - BA (Hons), D.Hyp, Dip.Thyp, PNLP, MHS (Accred)
I'm a fully qualified and experienced Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner and Talking Therapist and have been in private therapy practice for more than ten years. During this time, I've helped many people with a wide range of problems from stopping unwanted habits such as smoking, to overcoming life changing issues such as phobias, panic attacks, low self esteem and anxiety.
How I can help you
My focus is on enabling you to get to where you want to be; whether that's free from fear, anxiety or a habit. Or perhaps you want to stop smoking, lose weight or feel more confident. Using a variety of psychological therapies, I offer a calm and confidential space to help you make the changes that you need to be the person you want to be.
I draw upon a wide variety of influences within the field of talking therapies including:
- Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
- Eye Movement De-sensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR)
- Rewind Technique
- Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
- Person-centred counselling
- Human Givens psychotherapy
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
This integrated approach enables me to work with you as an individual, allowing you to explore your feelings and situation at your pace. With a special interest in anxiety, fears and phobias, I also see people with a variety of other issues too including:
- Anxiety & Panic Attacks
- Confidence & Self Esteem
- Fears & Phobias
- Public Speaking
- Stopping Smoking
- Weight Loss (including Gastric Band Hypnosis)
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Migraines & Tension Headaches
- Insomnia & Sleep Problems
I began my initial training as a Hypnotherapist with the Northern College of Therapeutic Hypnosis in Leeds where, upon successful completion of exams set by the Medical Hypnotherapy Examination Board, I was awarded Diplomas in both Therapeutic Hypnosis and Clinical Hypnotherapy. Following this, I achieved certification as an NLP Practitioner and since then, I have continued to develop my therapy skills with further training in Psychotherapy, Advanced Hypnosis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I have also completed training in the Rewind Technique, which is a method for helping people who are experiencing high anxiety conditions such as phobias, trauma and PTSD.
As an experienced therapist, I am an Accredited Member of and Approved Supervisor for The National Hypnotherapy Society and provide supervision for students, newly qualified and experienced Hypnotherapists. In addition to this, I am an Ambassador for The National Hypnotherapy Society and a member of the joint National Hypnotherapy Society and National Counselling Society Professional Development and Supervision Committee. I am also fully insured and hold a current DBS certificate.
Book an initial consultation
If you're considering hypnotherapy, the first step is to book an initial consultation. This is an opportunity for us to meet and discuss your situation in more detail, as well as answering any questions you may have and deciding on the best options for you. The appointment usually takes around 60 to 90 minutes and we will do some hypnosis to introduce you to hypnotherapy and help you prepare for future sessions. Further sessions are around 50 minutes and are usually booked between one to three weeks apart, depending on your situation. Between sessions, you may also be given an MP3 download to listen to, along with tasks to complete. These are designed to complement your sessions, so that you can develop new resources and skills to help you in the future.
