Helen's Qualifications

My first introduction to just how powerful hypnosis can be, was during a self-hypnosis course at Imperial College, London in 1998.

Using my new skills brought incredible changes to both my own life and the lives of my children, so I made the decision to help other people by becoming a therapist myself.

  • In 2000, I graduated with a First from Regent’s College, London, and became a fully qualified Hypnotist and Hypnotherapist.
  • I returned to Imperial College to complete further training and qualify as a Self-Hypnosis Teacher in 2001.
  • I then gained a Certificate of Hypnotherapy from the UK Guild of Hypnotist Examiners and also qualified as a Master Hypnotist.
  • I’m a Full Member of the Hypnotherapy Association (formerly known as the British Hypnotherapy Association) and hold comprehensive practice insurance.
  • Since then I’ve completed a great deal of further training in various aspects of modern psychology, psychotherapy and counselling and after several years of post-graduate training I qualified, again with a First, as a Human Givens practitioner.
  • I’m also a fully qualified Emotional Freedom Technique practitioner, something I’ve found very useful as a complimentary treatment over the years.

I ran a warm, friendly and highly successful private practice in Surrey for many years, where I was delighted and inspired by the amazing results my clients achieved.

Using powerful hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and neuro-linguistic-programming techniques backed up by plenty of life experience and a large dose of common sense, I tackled a wide variety of issues from smoking cessation and phobias to childhood abuse and self-harm.

Having used the techniques very successfully on myself and my own autistic children, from the start I specialised in the treatment of autistic children and adults and the support of their families, which has led directly to what I do today.

The therapy programmes I offer contain powerful relaxation techniques and life-changing strategies designed to become more effective with each consecutive use – the result of many years of experience in the field of personal development.

They’re not only for autistic people and their families: everyone can benefit from using them, and for people who don’t have much opportunity to slow down, I also offer subliminal programmes filled with positive affirmations which can be played while you’re busy doing other things like watching TV or reading.
