Thank you for taking the time to visit my page.
I am a fully qualified, professional hypnotherapist, having been featured in the local press and on local BBC radio for the work that I do.
I know that hypnotherapy is an amazing tool because I see how it can transform lives each and every day. We don't have to be defined by labels or boxes because we can harness the power of our minds to re-invent ourselves and reach our potential - whatever that may be.
Many years ago I was a person seeking help from a hypnotherapist, just like you might be today. In my case I wanted to deal with issues of confidence and assertiveness. I remember feeling excited about the prospect of a different future - one where I could really feel more comfortable and at ease, whatever the situation. After chatting to my hypnotherapist it felt like a great relief to think that I didn't have to just put up with myself and my attitudes anymore. I could transform, just like a caterpillar into a butterfly. And that's exactly what I did. What's more, I loved it so much that a few years later I decided to train as a hypnotherapist myself!
I now work with a wide variety of people and every day is interesting and a little different.
I help many people who are suffering from anxiety and worries and it's so rewarding to see how negative, racing minds can just calm right down. Relief is an amazing feeling after so much stress.
Others want to give up smoking and I have developed my own very successful quit smoking programme which is proving to be amazingly effective for many people. It's exclusive to myself and a prominent Las Vegas therapist who liked it so much, they paid me hundreds of dollars to use it.
I work with a variety of weight management techniques and have trained with some of the top names in the business - including Steve Miller who is the presenter of the Fat Families show on Sky TV. You might also have seen him on Breakfast TV or in the press.
Perhaps it's something entirely different, like a past life experience or pain management. I've helped raise money for charity with the pain relief work that I've done recently.
I work hard to support my clients so that they get the best outcomes they can. You can check out my testimonials on Google and my Facebook page to see some of the kind things that past clients have said about the help they have received from me. Each success is it's own reward.
One of my recent clients said:
"After suffering with anxiety following a number of health issues, I contacted Vicky at Tranceforachange. Having spent many weeks of attending counselling sessions without any signs of my condition improving, Vicky suggested that I try hypnotherapy. After 2 sessions I noticed significant improvement, my anxiety symptoms were reduced, I felt more confident at work and had a more positive outlook on life. Continuing with further sessions I now feel my life is back to normal. Vicky is such a lovely person and I cannot thank her enough for helping me through this most difficult time in my life."
It might be that you've tried other ways to create the changes that you want, as in the case above, but there always seems to be a missing factor and you don't feel that you're getting where you need to be. Maybe you've not felt certain that you have the willpower or strength to make those changes. That's how I can help, because through the techniques that I use, we can naturally work to bring out your very best qualities, with strengths you never knew you had.
The initial consultation for hypnotherapy is always free too, so that we can discuss what you need prior to commencing therapy. This means you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
I want to find out who you are, what inspires and motivates you and what your deepest dreams, goals and wishes are for your future. We can explore how I can help you so that when you leave therapy you feel empowered, strong and resourceful. I want the best for you because your success means everything to me.
I have the greatest belief in your ability to change and become the person you want to be. I will be your champion and your guide, working with you so that your best wishes can become a reality. So, let's turn the tide and start winning together!

- Quitting Smoking

You can find out more about me on my website at www.tranceforachange.com or continue to read a bit more about my qualifications etc below (some might consider this the boring bit).
Some of my Qualifications
I hold a HPD (Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma) awarded by the National Council for Hypnotherapy - this is considered the gold standard of the industry.
Diploma for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. This style of hypnotherapy combines positive psychology with hypnosis in a way that is very effective. It recognises that inside you there is a wealth of resources and skills, even if you can't see that right now. This therapy brings out the very best of who you are.
I am also a BWRT practitioner at advanced level and this can be of enormous help in respect of some of the issues I deal with and many clients enjoy a combination of both types of therapy.
I am trained in the S.T.E.P.S. protocol - designed to rapidly remove old, chronic pain. It's wonderful to help people who have been stuck with pain signals that aren't necessary. Because pain is interpreted by the brain in a very subjective way, I can help you to reduce or eliminate this type of pain altogether.
I continually train to expand my skills, so that you get the best service I can provide, underpinned by the latest knowledge in brain research.
Guilds and Memberships
I am a member of the CNHC (Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council), which sets out standards and guidelines for its members so that you can be assured of my best attention at all times.
I am also a member of the AfSFH (Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapists) which is a guild specifically created for solution focused hypnotherapists and which also has a strict code of ethics for its members to adhere to.
I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapists.
Further, I am a registered member of the BWRS (Brain Working Recursive Society), which is committed to further research into the neuroscience-based therapies for the speedy and effective resolution of psychological and emotional distress.
All of these associations and guilds have web pages where you can find out more information about their aims and objectives.
I hold an enhanced DBS Certificate (formerly CRB check) which can give you the confidence that I am able to work with vulnerable adults and children.
The First Step
I offer a free*, no obligation, initial consultation, which usually lasts between 30 minutes and an hour. At the initial consultation you will have the chance to ask me any questions you want and I will give you more information about the whole process. It's a very exciting time because from that moment, you know change is possible. You will find me friendly and easy to talk to. I am non-judgemental and offer a "safe haven" where your comfort and confidentiality are paramount.
I will also give you a copy of my hypnotherapy mp3 which is beautifully relaxing and full of positive suggestions. This will prepare you for our future sessions and get you feeling better from the outset.
Following the initial consultation we can set up your first session which will be tailored for you so that you can really start to enjoy the benefits very quickly.
- *At my Kenilworth location it's necessary to charge a £15.00 fee for the initial consultation to cover my expenses, but this will be allocated against the first session fees.
I offer a friendly, caring approach and will answer any questions you might have without judgement or any fear of being criticised. My own personal life experiences mean that I can understand so much more about human nature and the challenges we face.
I work from a very comfortable private therapy room in Hinckley, the Burbage House Health Clinic or from CW Therapy Rooms in Kenilworth.
If you would like more information or an informal chat please get in touch. I am more than happy to answer any questions you have.
I look forward to helping you look forward.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
I am trained in Level 1 and Level 2 BWRT (BrainWorking Recursive Therapy)
Hypnotherapy and BWRT are completely different therapies and would not be mixed together in a single session. BWRT is not a form of hypnotherapy and does not use trance states, however it can complement hypnotherapy nicely, or work as a stand alone therapy, for those seeking help for many, many conditions.
BWRT is a method of psychology that is very fast and effective. Clients can have sessions of hypnotherapy and / or BWRT at different times for a very comprehensive treatment package.
BWRT Level 1 can help with the following areas:
- Commitment Anxiety
- Panic attacks
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Exam anxiety
- Social Phobia
- Success Inhibition
- Fear of failure
- All types of Performance Anxiety
- Self Worth/Self-Confidence Issues
- Fear of Authority
- Relationship Issues
and BWRT 2 can deal with even deeper issues, including:
- Postnatal Depression
- Eating Disorders
- Binge eating and drinking
- Sexual problems
- Bullying (relationship or school)
- Substance Abuse

Following the initial consultation, hypnotherapy sessions are £60.00, lasting around 1 hour.
Smoking cessation costs £150.00 and is a one-off session lasting between 2 and 2.5 hours.
Rapid pain elimination costs £50 and may last around 30 minutes. If I don't eliminate or reduce your pain, I won't charge you.
BWRT sessions cost £60.00 and last around 1 hour. The initial consultation may last up to around 90 minutes as it often includes the therapy and information gathering on the same day.
Discounts and reductions are available at my discretion. If you are on a low income / in receipt of benefits or are a student please contact me for further details.
Free initial consultations are offered (hypnotherapy only) if the appointment is in Hinckley. However, due to costs incurred I now charge £15.00 for an initial consultation in Kenilworth, which will be refunded against the first session booked.

Some Testimonials taken from my Facebook Page and Google Review - Real Feedback by Real People
"As the hours ticked by, I was more and more astonished at how long it was since I last had a cigarette - and how little I wanted one. Suffice to say the entire day passed smoke free - and without me climbing the walls with withdrawal cravings. In fact, it was easy, almost an anti-climax and I haven't smoked since.
After nearly forty years of enslavement, I am free from the burden of smoking. After a week and a half of not suffocating myself to death my chest and lungs feel a lot lighter - and my wallet is considerably heavier with the money I have already saved. Friends and other smokers have been amazed that I could go from decades of smoking to nil literally overnight and it's already obvious that a few are intrigued and half-thinking about trying the hypnotherapy route. I've got your card in my wallet and if any of them get the point where they are serious about escaping the smoking trap I'll refer them to you in a heartbeat." Leics
Fantastic life changing therapy with a caring and understanding lady!
Vicky has helped me so much in many areas of my life using Hypnotherapy and Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT).
She has done an amazing job helping me overcome anxiety amongst other things.
Take a look, she can work wonders with a wide variety of problems.
I strongly recommend her.
I can’t thank you enough Vicky xx
Vicky has turned my life around. Days after my first session I was sleeping well. After a few sessions I was able to manage my anxiety and stress without resorting to coping mechanisms such as eating a whole pack of biscuits. Every aspect of my life has improved and I feel like myself again. ST, LeicesterI visited Vicky on Wednesday 2nd of August 2017 for a session of BWRT. The day my life changed and I will never forget it. I had been experiencing and altered mood and had become very low and isolated. Having tried other routes I was lucky enough, finally to find Vicky. I left her home therapy room with a smile on my face ... I am like the Cheshire Cat. My hubby is overwhelmed by the change in me. My anxiety has left and I am calmer and concentrated. Amazing. I would highly recommend Vicky who is a lovely lady, with a fabulous comfy chair and extraordinary talent. Thank you for helping my Vicky, I will be telling everyone about you and Trance for a Change. JA, Leicestershire
Vicky is a lovely lady who really puts me at ease. She explains how the brain works with hypnotherapy which makes it easier for me to relate to the process. Having said that, I haven't a clue what it is she's actually doing as I'm in such a comfortable, relaxed state I can only really remember waking up (or coming to, as I'm not actually asleep). All I know is that I float out of her treatment room and that I'm feeling better after only a few visits. Thank you so much Vicky. See you soon. JR, Stoke Golding
Vicky has really helped me over the last couple of months with my anxieties, hypnotherapy has given me a whole new lease of life. Fully recommend this wonderful lady to anyone who struggles with things like anxiety!! Thank you so much Vicky :) BM, Coventry
Vicky helped me to stop biting my nails after 30 years or more. I haven't bitten them since. It was the only thing that worked for me hypnotherapy. LS, Leicester
Vicky is a wonderful therapist who I would recommend to everyone. She has the most soothing voice and caring nature. She genuinely is one of the nicest and most supportive people I have ever met xx
