About me

Are you suffering with anxiety, stress related problems or low confidence? Is it holding you back? Find out how I can help you.  

My name is Claire and I have worked as a clinical Hypnotherapist since 2004. You will be assured of a relaxed, friendly and professional service from my clinic in Abingdon as well as from the prestigious Studio in Beaconsfield. During the restrictions or if you live too far to travel to me, I am available to see my clients remotely via video call, Whats App. 
My aim is to help you get your life back on track so you can lead a fulfilling life. I understand that it’s not always easy to ask for help, however, when you do you will be that much nearer to resolving your problem and your life is going to be so much better. It really is possible to make positive changes to the way you think, feel and behave.

With the right mindset we really can change our way of thinking and develop new behaviors to benefit and empower us. Enabling us to overcome many issues which can hold us back, we can achieve the best life we can in a short time. By changing these outdated beliefs and thought patterns using guided imagery and positive suggestions, I can help you lose weight, stop smoking, manage stress, anxiety and manage those debilitating phobias.  Hypnotherapy can be a very effective, safe tool for anyone with a genuine desire for change. I work with you to make the changes you require so you always feel in control.

Maybe you want to look into past life regression?

I work in a caring way in a safe and comfortable environment and I can really empathize with my clients, as I have myself experienced many of the issues my clients present to me. This therefore gives me a true understanding of the many issues people suffer and I will listen to you in a strictly confidential and non judgmental way and understand each client is different and has individual needs.

I always have your best interests at heart and you will never have to say anything you don’t want to say. Your sessions will be tailor made for you as an individual to help you reach your goal.

I will work with you as an individual to obtain a positive way forward, regaining control and happiness in your life. I am very passionate about helping people achieve their goals and make their lives happier. I have seen so many people turn their lives around after just a few sessions. I get results quickly and consistently for my clients, just imagine how wonderful you would feel after really getting to that place you really want to be.

Motivation and commitment are necessary to gain the most from your sessions.

I am available most days including evenings  to fit in with your working commitments etc. I am a fully qualified and insured hypnotherapist and also a member of the hypnotherapy society. All your sessions are totally confidential following the code of ethics.

I am able to treat many issues such as;
Stopping smoking, weight loss, fears and phobias, exam nerves, low self esteem, stress and anxiety, hypno birthing, gastric bands and much more..
I specialize in stress and anxiety related issues including low self esteem/confidence.

Hypnotherapy is safe and drug free and we will start by discussing your needs in order to tailor your session specifically to you.

Maybe you are feeling anxious about venturing out into the world again or returning to work if so hypnotherapy could be very beneficial by helping relieve any fears that you have, including exam or driving test nerves.

Below are some of the comments my clients have sent me:

"I don't know what you did but its working!!! Thank you so much I have not touched any junk food at all and no desire to binge on rubbish at night......
Lots of my friends want to see you now.

Claire is such a lovely lady. She has helped me with pain management through hypnotherapy. I know she has also successfully helped many others trying to lose weight, give up smoking, deal with stress, low self-esteem and many other issues. I can't recommend Claire highly enough.

"we had some sessions a while ago to help with my weight and also with my driving test! I thought I'd give you a little update on how it's going! The driving has been good, no accident's haha also I managed to lose nearly 3 stone in 6 months.. most importantly of all I got pregnant!! Which I think is hugely down to the weight loss :) I'm due in early September and very excited."

"Claire is amazing at what she does. She makes you feel at ease immediately and is very warm friendly and professional."

"I went to see Claire for an on-going issue and within a short space of time I was feeling great! This issue is now in the past and I’ve moved forward in so many ways, I would highly recommend Claire to anyone who is seeking help!"

“I went to see Claire as I had low self esteem and it was greatly effecting my life and making me feel depressed. She was incredible I am a different person now so full of confidence and I feel like I have a new life I just can’t thank her enough .”

Claire helped a friend give up smoking and recommended her to me. I Was a bit skeptical but I haven’t smoked since and that was a year would definitely recommend her.”

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

I offer hypnotherapy for general relaxation where I help you to completely relax. Stress can effect us all at some point in our life and can be very harmful to our health. Hypnosis will help you to unwind and totally switch off from life's every day problems and stresses. Hypnotherapy is like having a mental massage it is so relaxing and you will leave feeling like a new person; invigorated and full of energy. Try it and see for yourself..
