Charles Whitaker Clinical Hypnotherapist, BWRT® and OldPain2Go Practitioner
Everybody experiences anxiety at some points in their lives. But if your anxiety is causing you stress, you don't have to suffer alone.
Instead imagine living a full and confident life, no longer having to avoid situations that trigger your anxiety, no more dread or panic attacks. With my expert support, we'll beat your anxiety together.
When anxiety dominates our thoughts, it can become soul-destroying if left untreated. I can remove the negative triggers and uncover the true you, empowering you with freedom, resilience and confidence. It takes only a few sessions to start to feel healthy and relaxed again, and the effects are lasting.
So hello there, my name is Charles and I am a highly qualified hypnotherapist working mainly via Zoom (similar to Skype but more secure) but on request from Longfield Integrated Healthcare. I can understand that for some taking the step to start hypnotherapy can be daunting, so I am more than happy for you to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have, you can find my contact details at the top of my profile.
My aim is to help you develop your confidence, and reduce your anxiety so I can help you to overcome any challenges you may be facing. I use my experience and training in different approaches to bring about changes that are right for you.
What To Expect
When you come for hypnotherapy sessions with me I have a safe, non-judgemental space where I listen to you so we can identify and overcome your challenges. For many of my clients this environment has helped them to reveal their full story for the first time.
Hypnotherapy can be used to get quick results with challenges like weight loss, smoking and so on but it can also be used for deeper issues too.
To ask any questions or book an appointment please don't hesitate to contact me.

What my clients say about me
"I was not expecting any miracles and on attending my first session I was a little sceptical. However, the hypnotherapy sessions have been invaluable and hugely effective enabling me to move forward and once again enjoy life. Charles is an extremely understanding and approachable person, who made me feel at ease from day one." Anon, Peebles, Generalised anxiety disorder
“You improve my self-esteem ; are easy to talk to; a good listener with non-judgemental input; an empathic therapist who makes it easy to talk about anything; I think you are so much more than I can put into words.” AMDD, Edinburgh, Anxiety and Self-Esteem
"The difference in experience from flying previously was huge, I had been to the doctors to get some pills to help me relax if needed (my backup plan)… and I’m pleased to say they remained unopened and unused! I’d just like to say how delighted I am with the outcome of the treatments, something that used to be such a huge stress and worry was actually quite enjoyable and as a result the holiday itself became even more enjoyable as I wasn’t wasting time worrying about the flight home.” AF, Innerleithen, Fear of flying
"To cure my Erectile Dysfunction (ED) the Urologist prescribed Levitra. This brought me totally out of balance and didn’t help to make sex with my wife any better. As ED is often supposed to be caused by stress I consulted Charles for a hypnotherapy session. To my great surprise and delight the problem was solved in only one session! One and a half years later and without any chemical intervention I am still happy with my wife. We are both very grateful to Charles because he saved our marriage!” Anon, Germany, Erectile Dysfunction
“It was 9 months exactly yesterday that I had my session with you and so far I still haven’t smoked. I can hardly believe it as I’ve never ever managed that length of time in the past when I tried giving up. There was always the cheeky drag of a cigarette now and then on a night out or a sly one out the back door and then all of a sudden I would be back on 10 a day full time. I am delighted to say that this time round I have not had a cigarette near my mouth or even had a drag of one and this I know must surely be down to the hypnosis session I had with you. My next target is the year anniversary and then I will be confident enough to proudly shout that “I am a non – smoker”. I never thought I would get this far and I sincerely thank you for helping me break this awful habit.” Non smoker
