I’m a fully qualified clinical master hypnotherapist and breathwork therapist. I combine both of these complimentary, self healing modalities and tailor each session specifically for the individual. I have over 30 years experience working in the Corporate world, fully understanding how long term stress and anxiety can negatively impact physical, mental and spiritual health and well-being. I practise from my home in a tranquil and serene environment. Easy parking is available.
I specialise in Stress, Anxiety & Depression, Phobias, Weight Loss, and smoking cessation. However, I cover many other symptoms also. (see list below).
I offer a free initial telephone consultation (15-20 minutes). When attending an appointment you will instantly feel welcome, at ease and comfortable. I practice Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) incorporating hypnotherapy, Advanced Weight Control and Hypnotic Banding (Weight loss), I’m a smoking cessation specialist, and a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner.

The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

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
I'm also a breath work therapist. This is a great complimentary therapy and works really well with Hypnotherapy. Breath work focuses on bringing the client into full breath awareness by guiding the individual to consciously connect the inhalation with the exhaled breath. After a session the individual may experience many benefits including overall feelings of deep peace, calm and tranquility. This fabulous practise can have overall positive effect on mind and body, it has many uses ranging from maximising sports and athletic performance, to helping with public speaking.

I don’t often write reviews or testimonials but feel compelled to do so regarding my experience of breathwork therapy.
I had seen Vivienne for a few hypnotherapy sessions to address some issues with sleep/insomnia accompanied with stress and anxiety, these hypnotherapy sessions were very effective. However, when Vivienne first mentioned breathwork as a means to developing a long term “self help” tool I could use myself, I was, I admit a little sceptical to say the least. I’m so glad I trusted Vivienne’s judgement.
After several sessions it has truly transformed my life and is continuing to do so. At times it has “taken my breath away” at how effective it has been to release feelings of stress, anxiety and fear. With practice I now find when I “connect my breath” it provides me with an almost, instant feeling of calmness and release. Rather than allowing and enabling those negative emotions to build, suddenly I feel aware and in control.
I have experienced so much emotional release under the calming guidance of Vivienne, who is an expert in her field. Vivienne knows which way to direct and guide the session in order to address the areas I need help and support with, she often knows what I’m thinking before I do!
I have felt the deepest feelings of true joy, happiness and peace, like no other time in my life. It is truly life changing. I feel blessed to have discovered breath work and Vivienne, who has such a relaxed persona and always makes me feel at ease and able to just be me without ever feeling judged.
