Pauline Brumwell MNCS GHR Reg
I am a Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, located in the centre of Harrogate. I am also trained in Brainspotting, an approach that has recently emerged from EMDR therapy.
I offer effective and confidential help with a range of problems including: anxiety; depression; phobias; weight and body image problems; and addictions, (including smoking, nicotine gum, alcohol and gambling addiction). I also work with recovery from trauma; stress and anger management; and difficulties with self confidence and self esteem;
I am the author of two home audio hypnosis books: 'Powerful Home Hypnosis for Relaxation, Confidence, And Stress Reduction'; and 'Powerful Home Hypnosis for A Smoke-Free You'; Both of these are available as digital downloads from Amazon, Audible and iTunes.
If you would like to discuss more about how I might be able to help with your particular issue, I am very happy to arrange a telephone call at a mutually convenient time.

I charge £50 for daytime appointments and £60 for evening appointments from 5pm. Or, I can offer individually tailored pre-pay 4 session packages at a total cost of £160 for daytime appointments or £200 evenings. Each package includes up to 4 sessions of in-person hypnotherapy plus a free Audible download code for my 'Powerful Home Hypnosis' audiobook.
I currently offer hypnotherapy based packages for the following issues:
Anxiety, Phobias, Sleep, Weight and body image issues, Confidence building, Addictions, Depression and Trauma.
I understand that finances are tight for many people in the current economic climate and am happy to discuss ways of spreading payments if this would be helpful for you.
I find hypnotherapy highly effective in enhancing relaxation, reducing anxiety and stress and increasing self-esteem and motivation.
I am delighted that recordings of some of my hypnotherapy scripts are now on general release and available for download via Amazon, Audible and iTunes.
In person, individualised sessions of hypnosis can also be a very useful way of finding new solutions to specific problems, even if those problems have been bothering you for some time.
If it is difficult for you to get to my office for any reason, I can also offer home hypnosis packages combining telephone or Skype sessions with personalised downloadable MP3 recordings to use at your own convenience.
Hypnotherapy for a specific, here-and-now problem generally only takes a few sessions.
However, if people have suffered serious or ongoing neglect, separation or abuse as children; or long term abuse, multiple traumas or bereavements at any stage of their lives, they may find that the longer term psychotherapeutic counselling I offer would be more helpful for them.
