About me

As a qualified clinical hypnotherapist, I work online with clients all over the country and also have a calm relaxing therapy room for local clients in South Devon. I am passionate about helping people change unhelpful/unhealthy thoughts and feelings as well as unwanted patterns of behaviour. Do you want to change something in your life but just don’t know how? Is something holding you back and stopping you from getting the most out of life? Hypnotherapy can help with a wide variety of issues, the following list is just some of the problems I help clients overcome, it is by no means exhaustive!

Overcome stress and anxiety
Help with PTSD or past traumatic experience
Beat fears and phobias
Break unwanted habits and behaviours
Increase confidence and self esteem
Lose Weight
Stop Smoking in 2hrs
Start sleeping well

Children's issues include:

Bed wetting
Thumb sucking
Exam stress
Confidence/Anxiety issues
Behavioural problems

Hypnotherapy is a safe and natural way to change habits and behaviours that you may have had for many years, helping you to move from where you are now to where you want to be!  Take advantage of a free initial consultation which will give you the opportunity to tell me exactly what you want to achieve and of course, for you to ask any questions you may have. All therapy is aimed at the individual client and personalised to ensure you gain maximum benefit.

Not all therapists work in the same way and I’m happy to discuss how the techniques I use can help you.

To enable you to feel even more comfortable with the idea of Hypnotherapy, here is a recent testimonial from a client - "I have always been a believer in hypnotherapy but having now experienced it first hand I cannot recommend it enough. It works! Anna is a first class professional and is welcoming, friendly and an unbelievably good listener. If you think that hypnotherapy could be for you then don’t hesitate, call her, I guarantee you have nothing to lose but everything to gain."

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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
