OpenView Counselling



I am a qualified Hypnotherapist and combine this with my professional training as a counsellor to provide you with an in-depth consultation prior to any hypnotherapy session, to ensure that hypnotherapy is right for you.   We would decide together your programme of therapy which might include counselling only, or hypnotherapy only or a combination of the two.  Please see FAQs which may help your understanding.

The problems that HYPNOTHERAPY is best placed to help fall into the following broad classes:


Thoughts and ideas

People can suffer from thoughts of low self-esteem, or obsessive thoughts about someone or something. They may not be able, for example, to get out of their minds the idea that they are suffering from an illness, despite medical reassurance, or that a partner is unfaithful. HYPNOTHERAPY can help the client to change such ideas.



People often experience an irrational fear of a variety of insects, animals, objects or situations and HYPNOTHERAPY is particularly renowned for its effectiveness in assisting sufferers to overcome these distressing and inhibiting conditions.



People can suffer from a wide variety of distressing feelings such as panic attacks, anxiety, jealousy, guilt, anger or inadequacy.HYPNOTHERAPY can deal with those feelings more specifically than can a drug - and without side effects.



People can find themselves in the grip of many habits that they seem unable to control, from something like nail-biting or smoking to more deep-seated compulsions. HYPNOTHERAPY, using hypnotic techniques, can help to remove habits with precision and again, a total freedom from side effects.

Some examples of issues that are particularly receptive to hypnotherapy are given below:


  • Phobias and Anxieties
  • Emotional Blocks
  • Overcoming Addictions
  • Changing Limiting Beliefs
  • Smoking
  • Weight Loss and Management
  • Compulsive Behaviour/s
