Nicolette Pinkney DPSH GQHP GHR & CNHC Reg.
I am a professional, registered hypnotherapist with many years experience working within my busy practice, Inspiring Changes.
I work from a beautiful location in my private therapy room just outside the village of Lover near Downton, close to the New Forest on the Wiltshire/Hampshire border. I also hold a clinic at Neal's Yard Remedies in the centre of Salisbury on a Thursday and at Wessex Health Network in Christchurch on a Wednesday.
In addition to hypnotherapy, I use a combination of therapies including brief psychotherapy, solution-focused counselling, NLP, cognitive behavioural techniques and EMDR. Each session is tailor-made to suit you and the issues affecting your life.
Over the years, I have helped many people with wide-ranging and varying problems, not just those traditionally associated with hypnotherapy.
I run an informal but professional practice, with a friendly, understanding and non-judgmental approach. My aim is to provide you with an opportunity to relax and discuss things openly, in order to help you resolve your issues as quickly and effectively as possible, with lasting and permanent results.
The majority of my new clients come to me as a recommendation from somebody who has already seen me and experienced a positive change and resolution of the issues they sought treatment for, particularly those who have experienced anxiety, stress, phobias, confidence/low self-esteem, stop smoking and weight management.
Every session is completely private and confidential. I am fully insured and adhere to a strict code of ethics.
For all new clients I offer a free no obligation consultation by phone.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR), the largest and one of the most highly regarded professional organisations for hypnotherapists and am also validated by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
I am also regulated by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the UK regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners whose key function is to enhance public protection by setting standards for registration within CNHC. The CNHC 'quality mark' is being recognised as the hallmark of quality for the sector.
I have a DBS check enabling me to work with children, thereby giving parents and carers peace of mind.
