Cognitive Hypnotherapy & Psychotheraphy

We use Cognitive Hypnotherapy to aid in the treatment of issues such as panic attacks, phobias, migraines, low self-esteem, eating disorders, depression, O.C.D, stammering and P.T.S.D. The aim of Cognitive Hypnotherapy is to change negative memories, which are causing issues. Cognitive hypnotherapy uses your natural trance states (as you may experience when driving) to assist in uncovering feelings, thoughts and memory patterns. If you accept the premise that the mind and the body communicate with one another, then the quality of your thoughts will have an impact on the stress levels within your body. If you're thinking negatively, or view the world through a collection of limiting beliefs, then the body's response to this places an unsustainable burden on the immune system, which can ultimately lead to illness. A healthy mind is essential for a healthy body.

How is Cognitive Hypnotherapy different to traditional hypnotherapy?

Our approach is different from the traditional schools of hypnotherapy. We as Cognitive Hypnotherapists draw on recent discoveries and ideas from evolutionary psychology, positive psychology, cognitive theory and neuro linguistic programming (NLP) and incorporate them into a modern idea of hypnosis to provide a framework for therapy. We use a range of techniques drawn from different disciplines that we have found to be the most effective tools for change. These are moulded into an approach tailored to your specific needs.

What will happen during the treatment?

You are totally in control throughout the treatment; your practitioner just acts as a guide to help you find the solution to your problem. Have you have ever been driving and all of a sudden realise you have reached your destination and not remembered getting there? This is the same level of trance we get to in your session and it is ultimately when your subconscious takes over. Your subconscious will always keep you safe, it just allows you to go into an altered state of mind (trance) and it is at this time it is possible to reframe negative memories that are maybe holding you back.

Do you incorporate neuro linguistic programming (NLP) into treatments and what is this?

Releasing negative thought patterns and replacing them with positive ones, creates the conditions necessary to re-build your health. On its own NLP can provide a potent means for personal change. Incorporated within Cognitive Hypnotherapy it provides a cutting edge approach to modern therapy that can provide positive change quickly and permanently.

What Our Customers Have To Say

I contacted Anne as, after many years of smoking, quitting and then smoking again I wanted to stop without the help of smoking cessation drugs. The first time I met Anne she put me completely at ease. The whole process was stress free. Anne made me feel completely relaxed. I am now a non-smoker, free to get on with my life. I am delighted and highly recommend anyone wishing to stop smoking painlessly to contact Anne.

Debbie S

I first went to see Anne after suffering with anxiety and panic attacks on holiday. Every time I went away, even to destinations that I had been to before, I became very anxious and didn't want to be there and longed to be at home which felt safe. Anne was fantastic from the minute I first met her, she puts you at ease straight away by explaining what she is going to do. This helped me greatly. I went on a special holiday and had the most amazing time; I was able to eat and drink and go in lifts without worrying. I have recommended Anne to family members and friends.

Karen Hoy

Anne equipped me with tools and techniques, which changed my life from one restricted by fear and anxiety. She immediately puts you at ease, is completely professional in her approach and I cannot recommend her highly enough.


We started cognitive hypnotherapy sessions as we were about to undergo our second round of IVF. As our first attempt failed, we were not feeling confident. The sessions really helped to realign our thought processes and our confidence and attitude completely changed. We now have a beautiful baby girl – I’m confident that if we hadn't gone into the treatment with confidence and hope, the treatment was less likely to work. Many thanks.
