Who am I?
I am Helen, I live in Hampshire with my husband, I have two sons in their twenties. I enjoy walking, beaches, cooking and l am constantly learning :-)
I qualified as a hypnotherapist in 2012 from one of the leading colleges in the country. I work with clients on a full time basis and have continued my professional development over the years to include psychotherapy training that has given me numerous therapeutic tools to guide clients specifically with anxiety, pain and trauma based issues.
My niche found me; teenagers started coming and with referrals, more came.
I am fully insured and follow a strict code of conduct and ethics.
In 2018 I decided to take a sabbatical from seeing clients after a cancer diagnosis and bereavement. I began travelling throughout Europe and India. Spending three months in India I qualified as a Yoga Teacher and expanded my knowledge of breathing and mindfulness techniques.
The connection between the psychological mind and physical body has become a focus of my work with clients. I also run Holistic Yoga Therapy, where I work with clients Mind-Body-Spirit holistically using psychotherapy, Bodywork massage, yoga and movement, breathwork and more.
Helen has made such a difference for my daughter who is 10 years old. She has a complex medical condition and had a sudden attack of anxiety that meant she couldn't go to school or be amongst groups of people. Both Izzie and I immediately warmed to her and most importantly Izzie felt safe with her. We had a total of 4 sessions and very good back up in between. There were a couple of times we needed help between sessions and Helen responded really quickly with her advice and reassurance. For me, as Izzie's Mum, the most valuable thing Izzie has gained from this was, the confidence to be able to know that she can overcome the anxiety. She now has some very valuable tools that will help her for the rest of her life.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the brilliant treatment our son received from you. His presentation took place earlier this evening and it went really well. He is finding the skills you taught him really useful and is using them all the time.
Heartfelt thank you from us, Helen.
I have visited Helen on 2 separate occasions. She is very warm and easy to chat to. The surroundings are very comfortable and will put you at ease if you are feeling abit nervous. After a session with her I always feel brilliant like a weight has been lifted. I would recommend seeing her and would go back again if I am struggling in any area.
Helen was so approachable and kind, the therapy room was very welcoming and I instantly felt at ease. We set up plan to work towards and I had some things I could do at home. The hypnosis was so easy and immediately made me feel better and more comfortable with how I was feeling.
Over the sessions Helen gave me lots of tools that I could use to help me when I was feeling overwhelmed with grief and negativity or anxious about the future. Helen helped me to explore how I was feeling and the negative thoughts I was having and taught me how to challenge them and make them positive. I will always encourage others to try hypnotherapy; it’s amazing how well it works and I will definitely recommend Helen."
