My Approach

My approach is very much solution focused.
OK, so there’s a problem, issue, challenge or goal.
Let’s identify it and work out what to do about it!
I believe that the client is the expert in what they want and what they need.
I am a facilitator in that process – a platform, teacher and confidant.
I don’t do anything to the client or even for them. I help them to help themselves.
Think of this work as like going to a Brain Gym and I am the PT (Personal Trainer).
I will help them get on track, stay on track and get brain fit.
More than that, they will gain brain stamina and resilience.
This is a solution focused toolkit for life!
Accordingly, I offer a bespoke and integrative mix of the very best research-based and clinically-proven
psychotherapeutic techniques.

Natural Brain Chemistry Creating Positive Change
“Trailblazing Pioneers!” (Hypnotherapy Today)
“Named among the top bracket globally!” (The Penarth Times)
“This has been a wonderful experience for me. Through their enthusiastic and skilled approach, Alchemy Hypnotherapy has helped me manage anxiety and negative thoughts after a spell of serious illness and resulting treatments. I am more relaxed, sociable and confident. I also have more insight and clarity about my personal and professional goals. Thank you Alchemy Hypnotherapy for a very bespoke and positive experience!” (CW, January 2020)
“From my first session, I was aware that this would be something I’d never experienced in my life. It was the best decision I’d ever made. From being in the darkest place to coming out of the Hypnotherapy a new person, a better person, it makes me so happy to feel like me again. Thank you Alchemy Hypnotherapy for everything you’ve done for me!” (LS, December 2019)
“Alchemy Hypnotherapy has changed my life for the better. I am so grateful for the amazing help I received at a dark time in my life and I’ve gone from strength to strength since. Highly recommended team of warm and professional people who can actually help with issues holding you back in life.” (JD, October 2019)
“My son started seeing Alchemy Hypnotherapy due to ongoing issues with peers at school as well as anger issues. We have seen a complete change in our son who is getting along better with peers and teachers in school and his school work has drastically improved as well. We have seen a long-lasting improvement in our son’s mental wellbeing as we haven’t been for nearly a year but my son is still doing great, all thanks to the hard work and persistence from Alchemy Hypnotherapy. Couldn’t thank them enough!!” (LiW, October 2019)
