About Hilary

About Hilary

In the 90's I was working in language teaching and management in Further and Higher Education when I started to notice how stressful my working life had become.  I worked long hours, my colleagues were resistant to change and some behaved in negative and challenging ways. I’d always relied on my walking and yoga to stay sane and healthy and I felt I needed more help to remain calm. I did a short course of hypnotherapy to learn relaxation and self hypnosis techniques and have never looked back.

I decided to change my career, took courses in NLP, coaching and hypnotherapy, took the plunge and became self employed in 1997. The only thing missing was I was no longer teaching.

I enjoy helping people make changes in their lives and realise their full potential in sport, work and their personal lives. After being a successful hypnotherapist with a busy practice for eight years I finally started to train the next generation of hypnotherapists in 2005, combining my two passions of helping others and teaching.

I continue to learn and attend conferences and specialist courses such as hypnotherapy for easy childbirth, IBS, OCD, pre and post natal depression and have also trained as a Mindfulness teacher. I work as part of the Mindfulness Now team.

I like to use a tailor made approach to seeing clients, whether individuals or groups in organisations and companies, children, young people or adults, sports people and have developed a special way of helping problem gamblers. I also enjoy delivering resilience and leadership courses.

As well as training the next generation of hypnotherapists I deliver training to internationally to my colleagues on a range of issues, deliver supervision and assess the new generation of therapists.

I have held a directorship at NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy) and a post as specialist advisor for confidence and continue to encourage newer, less experienced hypnotherapists through supervision.

Hypnotherapy, mindfulness and teaching continue to influence my life for the better. Sometimes I don’t feel as if I am working as I work in an area I am passionate about. If only self hypnosis were taught as part of the National Curriculum I am convinced the children of today would grow up happier and healthier.

Testimonials

There are no testimonials on my website from any of my satisfied clients, because to publish testimonials would break the NCHP  Code of Ethics, explicitly the code relating to confidentiality of clients. In this respect I differ from other NCH hypnotherapists. In my opinion, if testimonials are anonymous they can be made up and have no meaning; if the name and address is stated then client confidentiality is breached.

Fees & Session

Sessions

You will need between 3-8 sessions, although, as you are in control of your own therapy length and intensity you can leave when you feel you can manage without my help. I always tailor make your therapy and give 100%, aiming to work with you as thoroughly and quickly as possible.

Fees

An initial FREE consultation of 15 minutes is available for you from Get Mind Fit to see if your problem would be appropriately treated with hypnotherapy. Afterwards, each session, lasting around 50 minutes costs £70 or lasting around 75 minutes costs £100.

To cover administration costs, appointments not cancelled 48 hours beforehand or no shows may be charged a fee of £50.
