Wendy Still HPD, DipCHyp, DCH, NLP Prac, MNCH
Hi, I originally trained in 2008 as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and more recently updated my skills becoming a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner. Over the years I've loved helping my clients overcome all manner of issues, including anxiety and panic attacks, fears, phobias, stress and depression; building up their confidence and self-esteem.
When you come to see me, it’s not me fixing you; you’re not broken. I believe everyone, including you, already has everything they need to be able to enjoy life more and achieve more, so the work we do is to get you back in control. It’s a joint commitment and collaboration where we work together to achieve the positive changes you desire and deserve in the quickest time possible.
I'll help you to understand why your issue effects you the way it does and teach you to control your emotions for yourself, so that you won't feel helpless or a victim of your problem any longer.
I'm passionate about hypnotherapy because I understand what it’s like to suffer with anxiety, to have fears and self-doubt; and I know how amazing life can be when you are free to do what you want to do without those things holding you back. Through my own immensely transformative experience of hypnotherapy I've been free to enjoy my life more and I'd like others to have this freedom too.
I appreciate that choosing to come to a hypnotherapist could be a little daunting for some. Therefore I always recommend a free, no obligation consultation by phone or in person first, before making any commitment, where I can answer any concerns you may have. It is of the utmost importance to the success of your therapy that you feel comfortable with the therapist you choose.
I'm caring and supportive, offering a safe and relaxed, yet professional service at my therapy room in Frimley where I can help you overcome all manner of issues, sometimes surprisingly quickly. Contact me to discuss how I can make a positive difference in you, so you can be free from whatever it is that is making your life unhappy or difficult now.

I felt very at ease and was pleased at how effective it was and how quickly it worked.
Martin (Fear of Flying)
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.
Emily, Student 22, (Anxiety)
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.
Grahame, Optician (Stress and Anxiety)
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)
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.
Nikki (Phobia & Work pressure)
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.brain works and how we make sense of our world. It combines various techniques and interventions from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Positive Psychology, Traditional Hypnotherapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Gestalt.
By understanding you are unique and your issues are completely unique to you and using this eclectic approach, I have the flexibility to tailor make each treatment to your specific desired outcomes.
A Genuinely Evidence-based Approach
The approach is based on discoveries from neuroscience and Evolutionary Psychology about how people think and how your brain creates your problems and your solutions.
In June 2015 the Quest Institute under took a clinical study to measure the effectiveness of Cognitive Hypnotherapy in the treatment of Anxiety and Depression. In September 2015 The Mental Health Review Journal recorded that using 118, in an average of six sessions:
71% CLIENTS IMPROVED WITH QUEST COGNITIVE HYPNOTHERAPY
42% CLIENTS IMPROVED WITH OTHER TALK THERAPIES (CBT, Counselling)
This published paper demonstrates the robustness of Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy.
