About me

Wendy Ashdown Dip.APCH, BWRT(Adv.), LAPHP, ANRPC, MBBRS. An Advanced Practitioner of Responsive Hypnotherapy© and Advanced BWRT® Practitioner in Welling, Kent DA16.

You are unique, so I tailor every one of my sessions to suit you as an individual and not the other way round...

Every one of my sessions is conducted in a professional, non-judgemental and relaxed manner. We go on your journey of change together.. to create a better future for you.

If it's hypnotherapy you are interested in, I mainly use a modern solution focused Responsive Hypnotherapy which is faster, flexible and therefore more effective.

I also offer a solution focused behavioural psychotherapy called BWRT® (BrainWorking Recursive Therapy). It is NOT hypnosis and is carried out in a completely conscious state. It's new, it's exciting and it's fast. And if your issue is delicate or personal, it is often possible that we can work 'content free' as BWRT® is a totally private therapy in which you only have to be able to tell me how you feel and how you would like to feel instead.

I offer a completely free 'no obligation' telephone consultation, lasting approximately 20 minutes regardless of which therapy you are thinking of.

Please do browse my website for more information and if you have any questions at all, or just fancy a chat, do give me a call or email me and let's take that first step...

Recent testimonials

"I am extremely pleased with the outcome, I have not smoked at all since I left your house! I haven’t even felt the urge to smoke either even when being out with my friends and when I’m drinking! It’s a miracle! Thank you so much, this really has changed my life for the better!!" (Hypnotherapy to stop smoking)

“Hi Wendy. Just a quick message to let you know how I got on with the flights. I was surpringly calm even though both flights were quite bumpy. I was still a little nervous and watching the clock all the way. However, I felt very much in control, my stomach wasn’t churning and I didn’t feel like I was going to panic. The thought of flying home didn’t spoil my holiday in anyway at all, I didn’t even think about it until the last day. I didn’t take the diazepam that I had been prescribed because I didn’t feel like I needed to. Overall I’m very pleased with the outcome, not 100% over it but a massive improvement in only 2 sessions. Thank you so much.” (BWRT for Fear of Flying)

“I was diagnosed with General Anxiety a few years ago. I tried everything and I mean everything. Whilst on holiday and having a particularly bad bout of anxiety I read about hypnotherapy and found Wendy. I can honestly say it’s the best thing I have ever done. Wendy was brilliant she put me straight at ease and I felt so comfortable (which is unusual for anxious me!) I noticed a difference after the introductory session I was so surprised. I only needed a few sessions and can honestly say it’s made a huge change in my life, I feel so much more positive & a lot less anxious. Thank you so much Wendy”   (Hypnotherapy for Generalised Anxiety)

“Wendy worked with me on these negative feelings and replaced them (somehow!) with more positive ones”    (Hypnotherapy for anxiety/nerves)

“Oh and a massive positive, I was able to go to a meal Friday without rushing home and was even able to go on to have drinks, this is such a massive massive step for me so thankyou !!!” (BWRT for Generalised Anxiety)

“Thank you so much Wendy. I am so grateful for your help. I can’t believe one BWRT session could have helped my phobia of dogs so much. I was able to have a photo with my sisters dog at the weekend which would never of happened before.”   (BWRT for dog phobia)

“I think it has really made a difference!”… “my boyfriend did comment that I was much calmer, there was no screaming, feeling sick or panicking and I managed to remain still whilst he dealt with it”… “I did analyse it after… I think I was surprised I didn’t feel that way if that makes sense because it has been that way for so long.”… “Interestingly I do not feel I go looking for them anymore and I have also not had any of my usual dreams about them crawling on the walls etc. in my half-asleep/half-awake state which in the past meant I would physically sit up and shine torches on the walls.”… “I am really pleased with how it has helped so far.”… “Thank you again for your help, on the whole it has been a very positive experience.”  (BWRT for spider phobia)

I offer a completely free telephone consultation, lasting approximately 20 minutes regardless of which therapy you are thinking of.

I then offer an extended introductory hypnotherapy consultation session at £50 which includes an experience of hypnotherapy for relaxation. This longer session usually lasts up to 90 minutes* and is worth it for the sheer relaxation experience alone (more details above).

*Further therapy sessions start from £50 (approx. 1 hour)

I also offer a reduced 'Pure Relaxation' Hypnotherapy session at just £30. One hour to yourself to enjoy sheer calm, peace & relaxation.. the chance to hit that reset button and let go of some of that stress & tension.. treat yourself. This is subject to a telephone chat prior to your session... or can follow after previous therapy with me.

Quit Smoking: This is a two session programme which costs a total of £125 and is subject to a free telephone consultation; £100 for your first session (90-120 minutes) and then £25 for your follow up session (up to 60 minutes), when and IF you need it.

My BWRT® sessions can even be offered remotely over Skype, Zoom or FaceTime if you would find it difficult to attend in person.

I sometimes offer concessionary rates for students (16+) at my discretion - please contact me in this respect.

Please visit my website for more information and feel free to contact me with any questions.
