About me

For nearly 40 years I have helped teenagers and adults to improve their lives and solve their problems while I was teaching in Colleges and in Adult Education in several different countries, and I can now do the same for you.

After completing my academic Post-Graduate training I started practising hypnosis in 1994 and since I moved to the UK I have gained several formal British and American qualifications in Hypnotherapy and Counselling.

I am now the director of my own successful private practice in North Harrow, At The Apple Tree Hypnotherapy, where we offer our clients a dedicated, comprehensive choice of services for their physical, emotional and mental well-being using a combined approach of Hypnotherapy, Conventional and Holistic NLP and Conventional and Holistic Counselling and Life Coaching that makes our methods particularly effective and flexible for their most varied needs.

We specialise in Weight-Management (including Hypno-Gastric Band), Stress Management, Regression Therapy, Stop-Smoking and Grief and Bereavement Counselling (please see our website for a complete list of the therapies and techniques available). We actively update our expertise on an ongoing basis and we are fully insured and bound by a strict code of conduct. Confidentiality is assured at all times.

As a practice we endeavour to provide support and guidance (via email and telephone) after a client has left our premises for as long as it benefits them. Our objective is always to provide a high quality bespoke service to those who put their trust in us, which is why we work only with a limited number of clients at any one time.

All our scripts are personalised, and you can be assured that they are created specifically for you and perfectly tailored to your problem and the causes that created it. We are all unique individuals with unique needs and unique solutions, and we know that having the same problem doesn’t mean that we can solve it in the same way. At The Apple Tree we shall help your Subconscious to unleash your full potential.

We offer 1 to 1 Sessions, Group Sessions, Special discounted Programs, a variety of CDs and WORKSHOPS: please see our website for details. All therapies are offered in English and Italian. Telephone sessions are available worldwide via Skype or conventional telephone connection.

We are proud to say that we have also had clients coming from Brighton, Cambridge, Peterborough, Norwich, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire in the UK, and international clients coming from France, Italy, Lebanon, India and the US.

Thank you so much for yesterday, I definitely feel I got a lot out of it. I will do as you have suggested and already am feeling better. I think I did discover a lot about myself. Looking forward to next week.
J.S. – Isleworth, UK

Thank you very much for your time yesterday, I found the regression process absolutely fascinating. It certainly gave me lots to think about.
P.C. – Hendon, UK

It really was a great experience and I do feel I got a lot out of it. I will keep in touch – lovely to have met you and had such an interesting afternoon.
J.F. – Walthamstow, UK

I did 2 PLRs and was able to confront issues I had during my teenage years and therefore was able to close an important chapter in my life. I am so relieved that I met Dr Bartoli as she offered me a lot of support during the whole process of dealing with my current problem and I now see a great change within me and the positive effect it has had on my daily life. In addition to that I have done a Remote Viewing which was very useful for me as I found a wider connection to where I lived in my previous two lives (which was – both times – the same location). I was therefore able to visit the place and see if I found even more connections – the whole experience was very exciting. I am ever so grateful to Dr. Bartoli – I would not be in this positive set of mind if I hadn’t done PLR with her. She is not only a warm loving person but also a wonderful therapist. Thank you so much for all your help.
L.M. – Stanmore, UK

I saw Renata because I had problems in facing any situation where I had to speak in front of a few or many people. My face would turn red, my voice would crack up, and my mind would go totally blank. The hypnosis helped me to be more confident in these pressure situations and to reduce my anxiety. It was a very strong experience for me that I recommend to all people having the same problem.
E.T. – Cambridge, UK

Having a desperate need to overcome my issues with weight I decided to visit a hypnotherapist after trying many diets in my lifetime. I wanted to know why I chose to sabotage myself, people would say to me: 'You have lost weight haven't you?' Knowing that I had lost weight I would then go home and overeat. On the advice of a friend I decided to visit Dr. Renata Bartoli I am the woman that people see and think: 'Oh she's not so big, she dresses well to cover herself up'. I was deceiving myself and others. Look, I don't want to be stick thin, I just want to be comfortable in my body, without loads of extra weight. Through therapy, I was able to identify when and how weight became an issue and what triggered bad feelings for me. I am now on the way to 'slimming' myself by daily self hypnosis/ positive talk to myself. Dr Bartoli has been essential in my attitude and understanding of why I do what I do. I now know that I WILL BE THE REAL me, you can be true to yourself too, it is possible. I had to invest in myself and realize that self preservation was vital for my health and future well being.
S.I. – Uxbridge – Middlesex, UK

When I decided to go to Renata my life was pretty much falling apart around me and I felt confused and out of synch with my whole being. So, I went to her with an open mind and determination to get my life back on track. I had 6 sessions with Renata and I found her therapies to be amazing. Her spiritual and hypnotherapeutic techniques were exactly what I needed in my life at that time. I found her professional, compassionate and in tune with me and what I wanted/needed. She tailor-made each session to the 'stuff' I bought with me each time. I loved being under hypnosis and felt I could trust her implicitly.
I also sent my 13 year old daughter, who found her one-session to be life changing and she still uses what she learnt.
I would recommend Renata 100%. She is a wonderful soul and seems to truly care about people.
P.G. – Kingsbury – London, UK

I came to Renata with a world on my shoulders and without seeing a way to deal with things in my life. Renata used hypnotherapy, advice and guidance which have had a profound effect on me. I believe that her methods do work and absolutely recommend Renata!
D.P. – Harrow – Middlesex, UK

I found the hypnosis sessions to be both informative on an intellectual level as well as extremely helpful in aiding me in my journey to solve the emotional problems I have been dealing with. I went in quite sceptical and a bit apprehensive, but Renata was very kind and had a very calming influence on me. I found the hypnosis, once I let myself relax and go with it, to be exciting and afterwards felt a hope and optimism that I hadn't expected or felt in a while. I will continue to use the tips Renata gave me about visualisation and would definitely recommend her sessions.
T.V. – Harrow – Middlesex, UK

I saw Renata because I had always been over-weight and diets had never worked for me. I also felt negative about my life and my future. Renata has helped me to drop those extra pounds that bothered me by discovering the deep roots responsible for my extra weight. In only two sessions I have achieved something I had never managed before. With her therapy called Interactive Inner World she has also guided me on a path of self-discovery and I have managed to turn my life around. Many thanks indeed.
S.G – West Hampstead – London NW6, UK

I am happy to recommend the Apple-Tree. It was a very relaxing experience. Renata is a therapist who is very easy to talk to and through this she understood and was able to create a therapy that was right for me.
P.R. – Harrow, UK

My sessions were incredibly successful. I have never felt so relaxed. Thanks to Renata's method of age regression I was able to explore and come to terms with the traumas of my childhood. This has led to new confidence and belief in myself. Renata, thank you so much.
S. G.-G. – Diss – Norfolk, UK

I have had PLRs before - this was my first time with Doctor Bartoli. I was happy that I was taken into TWO PLRs back to back - as I have not had that before. The audio recording of the sessions is also something that has not until now been given to me at a PLR. Since the regressions, I have consequently come to realise “more” about my possible Past Life relationships with the significant person known to me in this life.
S.B. – Hounslow, UK

I had not experienced much success with hypnosis until having a session with Dr Bartoli. She explained the process to me clearly and guided me through what I understand now is a collaborative process, where each of us has a part to play. I was especially impressed by the results of regression as I had no idea of how it might work and feared I might be resistant to it. Dr Bartoli sensed when I was having difficulty in making progress and gave me the means to continue, revealing aspects of myself along the way that I had no idea about previously. This is a thoroughly professional service I can endorse without reservation.
D.G. - Docklands (London), UK

I have tried for many years to solve emotional problems deriving from my early childhood which adversely affect my everyday life. I tried many different therapies, from conventional psychotherapy to art therapy and even hypnotherapy, but without success. Last summer I decided to consult Dr. Bartoli and I’m very glad I did. For the first time I feel that I’m getting control back of my life and I’m now looking towards the future in a positive way for the first time.
P.A. - Harrow – Middx, UK

Ho avuto paura della muffa (in particolare di quella dei cibi) praticamente da sempre e, malgrado le mie migliori intenzioni e sforzi, non ero mai riuscita a superarla, benché mi facesse sentire ridicola ed imbarazzata. Mi sono sempre chiesta cosa mai fosse alla radice di simile sciocca paura e in una sola seduta la Dott.ssa Bartoli mi ha tolto la curiosità e allo stesso tempo mi ha liberato dalla fobia, riportandomi indietro ad un episodio della mia infanzia che avevo completamente dimenticato. Con la revisione da adulta di simile evento sono riuscita a prenderlo per quello che era e finalmente girare la pagina. Mille grazie, thank you very much.
C.P. – Bologna, Italy

My initial nerves at undergoing a past life regression for the first time were quickly dispelled by Dr Bartoli who put me at ease straight away. Her calm manner helped me to relax more than I thought possible and it was fascinating to explore two previous lives with her. I realised that there were messages from my past existences which I could use to guide me through my current life and I am excited that, through meditation and dreams, I may be able to discover more about myself. Dr Bartoli gave me insight and taught me relaxation techniques which I will continue to use to help me on my spiritual journey.
T.L. - Ruislip – Middx, UK

I smoked and smoked and smoked. I wanted to stop and tried everything: I never lasted more than a week or two. In only one session Renata managed to make me stop. More than two months have passed now and I have not even had the temptation to start again. Now I am finally sure that I am a non-smoker. Many thanks indeed.
