I came to hypnosis when pregnant with my second child. A neighbour had done a hypnobirthing course and recommended it to me. It was a real game changer, I felt in control, excited, confident and completely relaxed about giving birth. When it came to the actual day I felt exactly the same and had the most empowering, pain free labour and birth, I just allowed my body to do what it needed to do.
It was such a positive experience that I can be quite evangelical about hypnobirthing!
That was over 10 years ago now.
I have also successfully used hypnotherapy for other issues in my life including anxiety. Having this first hand experience I understand the impact this can have over our day to day lives.
Knowing that hypnosis worked for me, I trained in Clinical Hypnotherapy on a practitioner course accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and General Hypnotherapy Register, the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and the National Hypnotherapy Society. I then, quite naturally, trained as a Mindful Hypnobirthing Practitioner with Sophie Fletcher, co creator of Mindful Mamma, the Mindful Hypnobirthing course, I also have a diploma in NLP.
I now have extensive experience helping adults, young people and couples with a wide range of issues from anxiety, self confidence, stress and pain management to weight loss, unwanted habits, anger, negative thought patterns and Hypnobirthing of course. Some clients also like to come for monthly wellbeing check ins.
I have a particular interest in Hypnosis for fertility and have enjoyed lots of success in this area. Treatment is based on The Fertile Body Method.
Please see my hypnotherapy for fertility page for further info.
Everyone is unique and sessions are tailored individually to suit each client’s needs. With a background of teaching I am very personable and a great listener and the sessions are a space where clients can relax and talk freely and openly without judgment.
The variety that hypnotherapy offers and the different challenges it brings up is something that I really enjoy.
I love how hypnosis can help people, quite quickly, overcome challenges and make positive changes in their lives.

“I was recommended by a friend to see Philipa. I went with anxiety and a fast heart rate. I had three sessions with her and felt so much better and took away coping techniques to help me. Philipa has a really calming persona and I felt totally at ease with her and would not hesitate to recommend Philipa or go to see her again."
