About me

When you are considering psychotherapy, hypnotherapy or hypnoanalysis, you need to be sure that you are going to get the best therapy for you. We specialise in helping you to find the true cause of your problem then help you to resolve it, for good, with hypnosis, hypnotherapy or psychotherapy. Are you suffering from the symptoms of anxiety, stress, low self esteem or low mood? Perhaps you have a fear or phobia, or a sexual problem which is preventing you from living life to the full?

Call us for a free chat and we’ll explain how we can help you.

You may be overweight. After years of trying every available diet do you feel like you’ll never be able to lose weight and be slim? Maybe you desperately want to stop smoking. Would you like relief from the symptoms of M.E., P.V.F., C.F.S and similar medical conditions? We can help you!

Take that first step and pick up the phone or drop us an email today.

You've come to the right hypnotherapist!

Our professionally trained therapists have the experience and expertise to help you to resolve any issues that are causing your symptoms. This quickly enables you to get on with living your life. You’ll be free from the symptoms that have had such a negative effect on you until now. All of our therapists are dedicated to helping you to overcome your symptoms and resolve your inner conflicts in a gentle, drug-free way… for good!

Whatever your symptoms are we have the therapy to help you. You don’t become the most trusted therapy centre in the south overnight. Perhaps that’s why over a third of our clients come to see us after being recommended by a friend or relative who has been helped to successfully lose weight or stop smoking at Hampshire Hypnotherapy Centre. Many of our clients recommend us to others when they have been helped with their stress and anxiety or feeling low and of course, there are those who have seen an end to their phobia or sexual problem.

You are bound to have general questions about Hypnotherapy and Hypnoanalysis and we hope that you will be able to find the answer to most of them on this website. When you want to find out more about how we could help you with your problem, whether it be low mood, losing weight, fear of flying, stress, anxiety, relationship difficulties, stopping smoking or low self-esteem. Just give us a call at any time and book to come along for a free initial consultation at our practice in Whiteley, Fareham near Southampton. This appointment is a completely confidential meeting where you can come along and meet us and find out how we can best help you to resolve the underlying emotions that are causing the problems you have and are holding you back.

We offer you the best therapy and counselling service available in Hampshire. We look forward to meeting you soon. Warm regards, James, Sue, Peter, Marise, Laura and Donna – specialists in hypnotherapy and Counselling in Whiteley, Fareham, Hampshire.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.
