Hi, I’m Steph
Clinical Hypnotherapist. Working with clients online. But based in Oxford, UK.
How can I help?
Life can feel exhausting. It’s stressful. And it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, frazzled or perhaps even hopeless.
But there is a way through. It’s well researched and used worldwide. And it’s finally reaching the mainstream.
Welcome to Hypnosis!
When therapy shifts from becoming a “less of” approach to a “more of” approach…building on what’s working…everything changes – Evan George
I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and run a busy practice in Horspath village, Oxfordshire. My practice is in a quiet location with convenient off road parking. I am just five miles from Oxford, four miles from the M40 and an hour from London. But thanks to online hypnotherapy, my clients come from across the UK and beyond.
I’m driven to follow the science, but it won’t take you long to notice there’s a bit of woo woo in my too.
I like people. So prior to setting up my Hypnotherapy practice, I worked within the Police service and racked up 14 years in operational and non-operational roles. Kindness has always been a priority, whether responding to a member of the public or mentoring police staff. Having worked for many years in police training and coaching, I am accustomed to delivering to large groups and also working one to one with individuals. I have taught subjects including law, psychology, neurolinguistic programming (NLP), mental health and stress management.
As a Clinical Hypnotherapist I continue to help people by supporting my clients, adapting my style to suit your individual needs and seeing you achieve the positive changes you want.
I thoroughly enjoy being a hypnotherapist and have a natural affinity for helping.
I work with you to help you make changes and achieve your best hopes. You may just need a little help to recognise the abilities you already possess. And understanding how your brain chemistry works helps enormously with this. One of the benefits of Solution Focused Therapy is that clients achieve change in a relatively short period of time, (many of my clients report significant changes after a couple of sessions or less). Another benefit of Solution Focused Therapy is that we focus on what you want to achieve, rather than your past and what led to you requiring help in the first place.
I trained in Hypnotherapy with the Bristol based Clifton Practice (CPHT). I hold both the Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) and the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (The HPD is considered to be the gold standard of hypnotherapy qualifications).
I am a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH), the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). These organisations ensure that their members adhere to their professional codes of practice, ethical standards, the data protection act and keep their skills up to date. The CNHC in particular was set up with governmental support to provide the public with an assured list of therapeutic practitioners.
