Under The Edge Hypnotherapy
Worlds End Lane
I am a fully qualified hypnotherapist with over ten years' experience, working with adults, children and teenagers in Wotton-under-Edge. My main approach is solution-focused hypnotherapy, which is forward looking and does not dwell on the past.
Solution-focused therapy concentrates on what do you want, rather than what you don't want. For example, you wouldn't go to the supermarket with a list of items you didn't need.
I have always had an interest in the mind, in all its fascinating complexity. I derive great satisfaction from changing clients lives and enabling them to live life to the full.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool and, unlike drug treatments, carries no risk of negative side effects. It is a natural state we often go into during the day, such as when we are engrossed in a television programme, reading a good book or doing repetitive tasks.
Therapy is tailored to the individual's needs and NLP and CBT techniques are used when appropriate.
I am within easy walking distance of the town centre and there is ample parking space.
Daytime and evening appointments are available.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the well respected Clifton Practice in Bristol. Prior to becoming a hypnotherapist, I trained as a State Registered Nurse and midwife and worked as a staff nurse at Guys Hospital, London. After having children, I retrained as a teaching assistant and worked for seven years in a primary school.
I am professionally qualified and hold the nationally recognised, externally verified, Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma. I am a registered member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy - MNCH (Reg).
I am also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. The Department of Health has recommended that where CNHC registers the professional discipline in guestion, you consult with someone who is CNHC registered.
I have undertaken further training in solution focused brief therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to Diploma level.
I have also undertaken further training to work with children and teenagers. Children and teenagers respond very well to Hypnotherapy as long as they want to have the sessions and appreciate that they need a bit of help.
