Choosing a Therapist

As therapists we abide by a set code of ethics to keep both us, and more importantly you, SAFE. Always make sure you go to a qualified hypnotherapist who belongs to a recognised organisation that have a code of ethics they abide by. We belong to the NCH – The National council of Hypnotherapy, follow this link to find out more.

The beauty of hypnotherapy is that you don’t necessarily need to go into details of events or personal history – the work can be done based on the behaviour of the reaction. However, it does help the hypnotherapist to know as much information as possible – even small and trivial pointers can be pointers to successful and dramatic treatment.

Therefore it is really ….really important to go with a hypnotherapist YOU believe YOU can trust, It doesn’t matter whether they’ve had great results with a friend…. If you don’t like your hypnotherapist or don’t feel you’re being listened to…. Don’t be afraid to find someone new and keep trying until you find the right one! YOU know whether the hypnotherapist is right for you.

What the CNHC advise when choosing a therapist.

The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) was established with government support to regulate complementary therapies including hypnotherapy.

Their key purpose is to protect the public. The Department of Health has recommended that, where CNHC registers the complementary therapists in question, you consult with someone who is CNHC registered.

What the NCH advise when choosing a therapist.

A hypnotherapist should be registered with an independent Professional Body, which welcomes hypnotherapists with the right level of training from a range of range of different schools.

The CNCH, The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, was set up by the Department of Health in 2010. The Department of Health recommends that you choose a hypnotherapist that is registered with the CNHC.

The National Council for Hypnotherapy, NCH, is the largest not-for profit hypnotherapy Professional Association in the UK and all members registered with the NCH are given the option to join the CNHC.

What our clients say.

I really want to thank you for your time and effort in our sessions. They were truly life changing as I thought I was going to be stuck with panic attacks and anxiety for the rest of my life and found out that it really wasn’t the case. I was in a place where I genuinely thought there was no way out and I was just going to have to learn to deal with it rather than overcome it and especially when I came to you, my goal at that point was to learn how to deal with it and instead I’ve learnt to overcome it which I didn’t even think was possible. Again, I can’t thank you for the difference it’s had on my day to day life.   Lera
