Wendy Still HPD, DipCHyp, NLP Master Prac, DCH, MNCH
Updated September 2020 - I'm happy to welcome you to my comfortable therapy room or if you prefer, we can work online.
Would you like to feel calmer and more in control? What if you could change? How much better would your life be?
I’m a caring and supportive therapist, specialising in anxiety and emotional issues. I'm passionate about hypnotherapy because I know it works.
When I was younger, I suffered with anxiety, panic attacks and depression; so I really get how it feels to have these issues and how they can take over your life.
When you come to see me, it's not me fixing you; you're not broken. It's just your healthy, normal brain doing what it does best – trying to protect you. I believe everyone, including you, already has everything they need to be able to enjoy life more and achieve more.
Change is always possible
Because I had such a positive and life changing experience with hypnotherapy, my goal is to empower people to achieve real lasting change.
My knowledge and experience allows me to use a range of proven techniques tailored to your individual issues. I'll teach you powerful yet simple tools to quickly help you feel more in control – in a space where you can feel safe, listened to and understood. The support continues between sessions with personalised recordings and follow up emails.
Whatever your issue is, let’s have a chat so you can take the first step to being happier.
I always recommend a free chat before making any commitment to ensure I'm the right therapist for you. I'd love you to call me on 07900 891854 or email me, via the message me button above to find out more about how I can help you.

Abbie, Student (Panic Attacks, Anxiety and Depression)
“I was dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety whilst on placement in a hospital that would send me into almost daily panic attacks; trying to cope with this and the aftermath of a traumatic incident that occurred earlier in the year; I felt I had no control over my emotions and an irrational fear of almost any situation that had the potential to ‘go wrong’. I’d never heard of or tried hypnotherapy until my mum recommended Wendy.
Very soon into my time with Wendy I noticed a rapid change in my behaviour. By the end of my sessions I found I had a much better control of my emotions, was able to put things into perspective and gained confidence in myself as well.
I would absolutely recommend Wendy to anybody struggling with stress, anxiety and depression etc."
Grahame (Stress and Anxiety and ongoing well being)
"I first consulted Wendy for hypnotherapy nearly one year ago with stress and anxiety problems. Initially I had weekly sessions and later monthly which I continue to have.
Wendy is professional and skilful and I cannot overstate the help she has and continues to give me. There has been an amazing transformation in my wellbeing during the last year. I now feel more relaxed and most importantly do not over worry about things as I have done for many years.
My only regret is that I waited so long to have Hypnotherapy, I should have done it years ago."
Paula (Anxiety visiting certain places)
“I went to see Wendy after experiencing high levels of anxiety about visiting certain places. This was stopping me doing some of the things I needed to do for work, and that I wanted to do with my family.
Wendy spent time fully exploring my feelings and then used a number of techniques to help me tackle the root causes of my anxiety. She also taught me some excellent coping strategies.
Wendy’s calm approach put me instantly at ease and she explained everything fully so that I had a good understanding of the way my thoughts and emotions were interacting together, and how to control these.
I would fully recommend Wendy to others."
Emily, Student 22 (Anxiety, fear of being sick)
“Before seeing Wendy, I was having anxiety attacks in social places, specifically on the bus, in shops and in my lecture room at university. At the time of these attacks I would feel nauseous and dizzy, making me fear being sick in public. This became a cycle of fear and I began avoiding these situations, not going out if I could help it. At this point, I decided to see help and began to look into hypnotherapy.
My first appointment already helped me to relax, even before we began the deeper work. Though my sessions have finished, I am still receiving support by listening to audio recordings from our previous sessions to help me relax and cement all the work we had put in. Thanks to Wendy, I am steadily becoming the person I want to be and used to be before the anxiety took over.
Now, I am able to travel on the bus without fear, visit shops and attend my lessons confidently rather than worrying about my anxiety. Though my sessions have finished, I am still receiving support by listening to audio recordings from our previous sessions to help me relax and cement all the work we had put in.
Thanks to Wendy, I am steadily becoming the person I want to be and used to be before the anxiety took over.”
Laura (Work Stress & Anxiety Attacks)
“I was dealing with a lot of stress at work and as a result began to have anxiety attacks. I was constantly on edge and even the simplest of tasks became challenging. I felt as though I could not cope and became very emotional. I’d never tried hypnotherapy before but was recommended to Wendy by a friend. After just one session I noticed a significant change within myself and in my way of thinking. Through the use of hypnotherapy my mind become more clear and I could focus on life with a ‘can do’ attitude.
I would recommend hypnotherapy to anybody who is struggling with stress.
Through just a few sessions Wendy has given me a strength that continues to guide me in my everyday life.”
I felt very at ease and was pleased at how effective it was and how quickly it worked.
Martin (Fear of Flying)
“I wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know I have just returned (successfully) from my trip to Germany. I had some slight anxiety beforehand about how I would react when I got on the plane rather the flight itself, but my new-found confidence soon overcame this when I used the techniques, you’d shown me. During the flights themselves, I was completely comfortable and although I avoided looking out of the window on the outbound flight, I quite happily managed it on the way back. The view from above the clouds in the sunshine and the approach to London in the dark were both quite spectacular, something I never would have dreamed of enjoying a few months ago.
I’d like to thank you again for the amazing work you have done to help me overcome this phobia – in just a few sessions I have transformed into a completely unrecognisable person compared to my last attempt to board a plane.
I genuinely thought I would be someone who couldn’t be ‘cured’ but at the risk of sounding cliché, this has quite literally changed my life.
Not being able to fly would have seriously affected my job as frequent travel to Europe and the US will be necessary in the future, and more importantly, I will now be able to holiday in more exotic destinations than a car would allow, much to my wife’s delight.
I can’t recommend you highly enough and would love to talk to any sceptics out there considering hypnotherapy.”
Nikki (Phobia & Work pressure)
“Wendy from the start took the time to get to know me and to understand what I wanted from our sessions. This I found really important.
As someone very sceptical about hypnotherapy I was amazed by how at ease Wendy made me feel and how easily I could relax with her. After several sessions I had gone from a person who could not be in the same room as a wasp to someone who could brush them away without screaming!
I have also had further hypnotherapy to aid relaxation and wellbeing during times of work pressures because it made me feel so good.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Wendy.”
