Wendy Wilkinson D.Hyp Psch, EFT Advanced, Matrix Reimprinting, RM
With a background of over 30 years in the NHS, I continue to work within the NHS and run private Hypnotherapy clinics in Lewes East Sussex.
- ..............Wendy helped me deal with the trauma of previous major surgery a few weeks before giving birth to my daughter. I had always been cynical about therapy but knew I had to do something before going in to hospital again. Immediately after the session I felt relaxed and less anxious, but it wasn’t until I was in hospital when I realised how effective hypnotherapy had been. I felt in control, calm, and strong. I was free to fully enjoy and appreciate a very beautiful, special moment. (Sept 2013)
I have a thriving hypnotherapy practice, specializing in Hypnotherapy, Solution-focused psychotherapy, Hypnobirthing and Emotional freedom technique ( Tapping).
I work with a wide range of issues: Birth preparation, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, PTSD, IBS.....
Utilizing a combination of hypnotherapy, solution focused psychotherapy and EFT, I take a holistic approach to your well being that creates rapid and long-lasting change.
I have a speciality in birth preparation running regular Hypnobirthing courses as I am also a qualified practising community Midwife in East Sussex.
- Thank you - and a massive massive thank you for everything, especially the hypnobirthing support and advice. I really couldn't have gone in and done it so smoothly! Really really had a lovely birth and as you said, I would happily do it again tomorrow! If you'd like any recommendation etc to let me know xx
I am not sure how to put into words how grateful I am to Wendy for completely changing my life around.
I found out last October I was expecting again (it was our 3rd child but 4th pregnancy) we weren't trying so the shock soon turned into terror, I just literally, genuinely thought I was going to die giving birth.
My 2nd pregnancy had resulted in a missed, ruptured ectopic, I collapsed in the street and was rushed to accident and emergency but had to wait in a corridor for 2 days. It was unknown that I was internally bleeding eventually I was scanned. I required emergency surgery to remove my right fallopian tube.
I found out I was pregnant again 9 months later, it was all I could think about was to be pregnant again (too soon really I now realise as I never addressed my trauma of the 2nd). Sadly after giving birth to my beautiful daughter, I had a major haemorrhage losing 2litres of blood I was rushed in for general surgery & had to stay in the hospital for almost a week.
Slowly as time went by I started to have a fear of blood and of dying.
I developed migraines and had a couple of panic attacks.
Wendy saw me as my midwife at the beginning of my pregnancy where I broke down (she has been my midwife for all of my pregnancies) I told her all my fears and erratic thoughts and she suggested hypnotherapy.
I have not looked back since! It was quite possibly the best thing I have ever done! We went over the traumas and revisited the places that made me the most anxious and she enabled me to see things in a different light. I am the most relaxed I have been in such a long time (even with 3 children!).
I gave birth in June and I used her breathing techniques and I went to my 'happy place' quite a lot during my contractions.
It wasn't without drama at one point it was looking like an emergency caesarean as my daughter was face first but I didn't freak out I stayed completely calm and all because of Wendy. In the end, I delivered 10 mins later (after her head was moved slightly) and it was the most amazing birthing experience I have had.
Wendy, I want to thank you with all my heart, so does my husband he says I am back to how I used to be!'

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Thank you Wendy for your valuable hypnobirthing course.
The trauma release therapy (tracing limiting habits & patterns) was invaluable as I was able to iron out anything I was holding onto and release this before the birth. It helped enormously as I felt freer and more understanding of my body and mind.
I played your hypnobirthing audio on repeat throughout the birth. It was a support in the background and a soothing yet empowering support that kept me going. I had the birthing experience of my dreams. I never knew it was possible and I'm very grateful.
My husband was also very relaxed and in control of himself as a birthing partner. He had come to see you for hypnotherapy and he said it was a huge benefit. For both of us, our experience was a totally different and more positive one, compared to my first birthing experience.
I had a lot of health problems with my second pregnancy so I was really concerned. But your voice and coaching made me feel as though I could do it, and I did!
