Vicki Crane - BA(Hons) D.Hyp Dip.Thyp PNLP MHS(Accred) | Hypnotherapy in Leeds
*** COVID19 UPDATE ***
I am pleased to announce that I am now able to offer clinic appointments again. New COVID-19 social distancing, safety and hygiene procedures are in place at the clinic for the safety and wellbeing of everyone and further information about this can be found on my website:
Prefer to attend appointments online?
In addition to clinic appointments, I also offer therapy sessions online via Zoom. If you’ve never used Zoom online video software before, full instructions are provided when you book your first appointment. You don’t need to be an IT expert and most people find it a lot easier than they thought it would be. You may even feel more at ease in your own environment, without the formality of the strict hygiene and safety procedures in place at the clinic.
If you're unsure whether hypnotherapy is right for you or if you have any questions, please get in touch. I offer a free 20 minute phone or online video consultation where you can discover more about therapy and how it could help you.
I’m an experienced Hypnotherapist based in Leeds and work with people who are experiencing a wide range of problems and issues. My focus is on enabling you to get to where you want to be. Using a variety of psychological therapies including Hypnotherapy, NLP, Counselling, CBT, EMDR and Mindfulness, I offer a calm and confidential space to help you make the changes that you need to be the person you want to be. This integrated approach enables me to work with you as an individual, allowing you to explore your feelings and situation at your pace.
HOW I CAN HELP
I have developed a unique approach to therapy which is designed to enable you to get the best from your therapy sessions. During your sessions, together we will look at a number of areas including:
We are born with only a handful of instinctive survival behaviours and responses. Everything else that we know and have ever known, is learned behaviour, either through deliberate learning or as a result of our experiences. The various events that we encounter in life and the memories that we create, can sometimes lead us to form behaviours and responses which are not always helpful or useful.
Memories of past events, especially if they are traumatic, can often feel intense and can cause us to experience unwanted emotions. On a subconscious level, these emotions direct our response to future similar situations. Using Hypnotherapy, alongside other therapies such as EMDR, EFT or the Rewind Technique, it's possible to neutralise that emotional intensity. You'll still have the memory, but without the emotional reaction.
We cannot change the past, but we can change how we feel about the future. Many of the negative responses that we want to change, stem from our feelings about a past event or situation. Through therapy, you can learn to manage your emotions and responses, enabling you to feel better. With the help of tried and tested psychological tools to help you control unwanted responses, you can begin to experience more positive feelings.
Throughout the therapy process, we focus on the outcome that you want to achieve and we use your goal as a guide to help us navigate from where you are now to where you want to be. Hypnotherapy, Counselling and other talking therapies have a good track record in helping people to make lasting changes, however your motivation and participation are the real keys to success, so you need to play your part too.
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 am also trained 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.
ABOUT THERAPY SESSIONS
Your First Session
Your first session 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 recording to listen to or other therapy 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.

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.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
The arrival of Coronavirus and the changes that have occurred over the past few months, have had a big impact on many people’s lives. The constant media coverage combined with the uncertainty of what the future may hold, has left many people feeling anxious, overwhelmed and even burnt out.
Whether you’ve been directly affected by COVID-19, you’re anxious about catching it, you’re worried about your job or perhaps you work in healthcare and are experiencing stress, hypnotherapy may be the help you’ve been looking for.
Further information about fees is available on my website.
