As a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Coach I’ve studied and continue to study what makes people happy and unhappy. I’ve learned many ways that can help people stop doing, thinking and feeling things that have been making them unhappy. I don’t judge what you should or shouldn’t be doing – you tell me what’s making you unhappy and how you’d prefer to be and together we’ll use the skills I’ve learned to help guide you to overcome whatever it is that you want to change.
So here’s the thing … no one is perfect. We’re all good at some things and not so good at others. When clients come to see me they’re usually focusing on what they’re not good at although I know that they have many skills, qualities or abilities that they’re not currently using and I’m passionate about using the skills that I’ve learned to help women tap into their own skills and feel better about themselves.
And because you don’t know me yet, here’s the list of the important certificates and qualifications so you know that I’m properly qualified.
I am a fully qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist, Master NLP Practitioner and EFT Practitioner based at the Holistic Centre, Godalming, Surrey and The Light Centre, Moorgate.
I graduated from the prestigious Quest Institute London having gained my Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy, NLP Master Practitioners Certificate and Hypnotherapist Practitioner Diploma which is externally verified by the National Council of Hypnotherapy and accredited by the NCFE.
I am registered with the CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council) the UK regulator for Complementary Healthcare who provide a benchmark for standards and safety for the public. To be registered with CNHC, I have undertaken to abide by their rigorous code of conduct, performance and ethics.
As part of my commitment to continued professional development I have been certified as a Confident Childbirth Practitioner which is a specialist qualification in hypno-birthing.
I’ve a certificate in recognition of my skills as a Specialist Smoking Cessation Practitioner.
The Research into Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy – The Evidence based approach.
As a member of the Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy Research Group I’m proud to be involved with the following:
Over the last few years a group of Quest Trained Cognitive Hypnotherapists and their clients have taken part in a research project. As a result in the September 2015 issue of the Mental Health Review Journal, a peer-reviewed article comparing Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy with national results for the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme suggested that….’QCH may offer a brief effective treatment for clients with clinically significant levels of anxiety and/or depression, widening client choice’. This is a wonderful and unique achievement demonstrating the robustness of QCH as a therapy model. In an average of six sessions, 71% reported themselves recovered, compared to 42% of people using other IAPT therapies. Quest is committed to demonstrating effectiveness, one client at a time, and in doing so we believe we are setting the standard in transparency. This article also highlights the little known fact that dropout from treatment in statutory NHS services is so high that it’s hard to really have any confidence in the outcome of statutory treatment. QCH is positioned to offer a real alternative and we are working hard to bring this to the attention of both the public and the commissioners of services.
