About Annette

As a professional hypnotherapist, qualified in clinical hypnotherapy and psychotherapy, I use hypnotherapy to help others overcome a wide range of issues including anxiety, self improvement, fears and phobias, weight management, stop smoking, plus much more. I ran a highly successful full-time hypnotherapy practice in Truro, Cornwall since 2013, until my move to Winchester in Hampshire in 2021, and am now offering solutions to local people and beyond using Zoom.

What I have learned throughout my time spent studying hypnotherapy is that hypnotherapy can achieve results. Hypnotherapy and hypnosis has been a fascination for me for many years, as has the psychology behind it, and it can be a powerful way to take control. A way to resolve, manage and find solutions to gain more success in life.

Prior to training as a Clinical Hypnotherapist I worked for many years in learning disability and mental health services. I completed my BSc Nursing and Social Work Studies in 2001 and a Masters Degree in Health Services Research with merit in 2012.

My background in health led me to seek a new way to help people create positive change, I wanted to find a way to help people to heal. I began to read up on hypnosis and hypnotic induction and discovered a huge amount of research into hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Although this research is ongoing, there were enough positive findings to convince me that there was something to hypnotherapy, and I attended several training weekends before deciding to undertake the full training to become a certified clinical hypnotherapist.

I am an accredited member of the National Council of Hypnotherapists (NCH) and I am an Anxiety UK approved therapist. As a member of a professional organisation I am bound by their code of conduct and I am obliged to attend supervision and undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities, such as training and self-study. The organisations act as regulators to hypnotherapy practitioners and I adhere to strict codes of conduct and ethics as outlined by them. I also hold full public liability insurance in line with the regulators requirements. This means that people who are looking for a therapist can be assured that the service they recieve is professional and accountable.

I am always delighted to see clients achieve outstanding results. To resolve their problems. To regain control of their thoughts and situations to live a better life. Though hypnosis I am able to achieve this. I am able to help people. It’s people that come to me for hypnosis that makes the practice worth it. That’s why I’m a hypnotherapist and here to serve those in need.
