Hypnotherapy Reading and Wokingham focuses on you, not a label

I believe you are unique! The way you experience your problems are unique. You deserve a tailored approach which means I personalise a treatment plan to your specific needs.

As part of your treatment, I will send you MP3 downloads and teach you empowering tools. These include relaxation, mindfulness and self-hypnosis techniques. This helps accelerate your progress because you have practical tools to use at home.

Hypnotherapy for anxiety and confidence issues

I specialise in helping people overcome anxiety and emotional issues. This might include panic attacks, phobias, public speaking, sleep issues and trauma. If you’ve been suffering with any of these or other emotional problems, contact me.

The good news is that it’s possible to be free of those issues and learn to build your confidence.  Hypnotherapy helps you quickly get underneath to the unconscious causes of your issues. As a result you might be surprised how soon you can be free of old symptoms.

I’m passionate about helping people feel confidence and enjoy their lives more. Call me if you want to discuss how I’ve helped others.

Helping with confidence:

“I had three sessions with Clare to overcome self confidence issues and I can honestly say i feel like a different person. Not only is the therapy excellent but Clare takes time to talk through the rational aspects of the fear/condition so that you can understand it and further help overcome it. I would highly highly recommend her.” Nina Sawetz, August 2017 

“All I can say is amazing and what a lovely person thank for helping me” Hypnotherapy Reading –Luke Newman, August 2017 (Review on Facebook)

Overcome anxiety:

“I had three sessions with Clare, and found them very helpful. Feeling out of control and anxious were the main reasons for seeking help, and Clare made me feel at ease and was very understanding, at the same time helping me view things from a different perspective. Clare was very generous with sharing and suggesting useful resources, which I continue to use. Overall a very positive experience, would highly recommend.” Hypnotherapy in Wokingham, M Shepp, May 2017 (Freeindex Review)

I would highly recommend her !” Hypnotherapy in Reading –  Jayne Doyle, April 2016  (Review on Facebook)

Work and relationship issues:

“The few days following the session were the best few days I can remember having in years and years.  I had about 4 days of just feeling I was in this secure safe bubble, like I had a protective film over me and no-one could touch me, it was amazing!” Sarah, 2016
