My name is Rebecca and I am a qualified accredited hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner. I love what I do. I provide quality sessions for clients and I achieve excellent results. I have personally benefited from hypnotherapy and I believe this and my extensive training & experience helps me to empathise and have a greater understanding of what is required and works.
Hypnotherapy is known to be very successful in treating addictions but it is now commonly used to help with:
Inner Child Healing
Interview Relaxation & Confidence
Illness & Health Relaxation
Letting Go of the past
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a safe, natural state of relaxation like our day dream state. We experience this on a daily basis in natural situations such as:
Reading a book or watching a film
Listening to music
Driving a car on automatic pilot
Misconceptions of hypnotherapy
Due to staged shows the impression has been given that we loose control in hypnosis. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In hypnotherapy you are fully in control, you are conscious, can move and talk. You can open your eyes at anytime, changes cannot be made that you do not agree with and you are always in full control. You may just find that you are so relaxed that you are happy to enjoy the peace and remain still but the choice is always yours.
What does hypnotherapy feel like?
Your mind and body is very comfortable and relaxed and yet you will be aware of sounds and movements around you. It gives you a feeling of complete security, well-being, contentment and relief from tension. Most thoroughly enjoy the feeling as you can experience a deep inner peace that your mind and body often longs for.
Afterwards the body and the mind can feel completely rejuvenated as this natural state is very healing for the mind and body.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis (relaxation) for therapeutic purposes. Hypnotherapy allows parts of the brain to become more active so that visualisation and memory recall becomes easier and positive changes can be made. Hypnotherapy communicates with both the conscious and subconscious and is very safe and effective.
The subconscious mind stores all our past memories, emotions, beliefs, images and thoughts. In a relaxed state (hypnosis) we can identify and access any repressed emotions or memories that are at the root of our current issues. These memories are not relived but can be healed by going through some simple processes.
Hypnotherapy also includes rehearsing positive scenes and scenarios in our minds along with bringing in the relevant positive feelings. This is a powerful process and encourages the subconscious mind to provide us with what is needed on the day, e.g. stay calm & provide positive thoughts.
I also use NLP (neurolinguistic programming) which is a collection of techniques, models and processes for changing unwanted behaviours, letting go of limiting destructive behaviour & thought strategies and healing old negative emotions and more. NLP is based on the work of three renowned therapists who had achieved extraordinary results with their patients and I can see why as I am achieving fantastic results also.
In a relaxed hypnotic state, providing the subconscious with positive suggestions (if the conscious agrees) is also very effective at achieving the change that you desire.
I tend to use a good mixture of all the above techniques in one session to ensure results.
How is hypnotherapy achieved?
Deep relaxation can be achieved by talking you through relaxing the body and mind completely and then talking you through a relaxing scene such as a beach, a place in nature or place special to you. If you feel that you may not be able to visualise this, that is fine as we can utilise other senses. Although if I asked you if you could picture your car or your house/garden, you would more than likely be able bring something to mind and that is what I am after. It doesn’t have to be a clear image, the sense of the scene is enough. Hypnotherapy allows parts of the brain to become more active so that visualisation and memory recall becomes easier.
Hypnotherapy feels very similar to guided meditation and deep relaxation. Most people are happy to stay in this relaxed, calm & happy state.
Online Zoom Sessions for Hypnotherapy are just as effective as face to face sessions and are producing fantastic results. Full CV procedure in place if you prefer a face to face appointment, see 'CV19-Your Visit'.

Neuro Lingustic Programming (NLP) is utilised within hypnotherapy sessions. NLP is a collection of techniques, models and processes for changing unwanted behaviours, letting go of limiting destructive behaviour & thought strategies and healing old negative emotions and more. NLP is based on the work of three renowned therapists who had achieved extraordinary results with their patients.
Example of Media Use
A classic example (one aspect of many, many tools) of how NLP has been used in the media is, when you think of the word ‘hamburger’ which company do you think of? When you think of the words ‘fizzy drink’ which company comes to mind? This is called anchoring which means that we associate certain words and sounds with certain events, objects, people or companies in this situation. They may not make you want to buy a burger but if you were to fancy one, and if they did their job correctly, the big yellow M will come to mind.
NLP in Everyday situations
We have created our own personal anchors, which are different for everyone. For some smelling coffee can mean “ahh time for a break” and may bring images of the sofa, and feelings of warmth and cosiness may arise. This can also be done in the reverse, for many of us, a negative situation experienced will cause an uncomfortable feeling. If this situation happened in a classroom for example, then anything that the brain perceives as similar such as a meeting room or an authority figure such as a boss may bring up a similar feeling as the original event. The brain has done a pattern match. This is similar to that, therefore you will feel this! NLP has the tools to reverse this and they are often very simple and effortless for the participant.
Used by Professionals
The above is just a tiny part of NLP. It’s about understanding how our brain works and using that knowledge to overcome some of our limitations. This is why NLP is often used by top sports and business professionals as well as therapists.
NLP processes are very effective and therefore used regularly in these hypnotherapy sessions.
