Hypnotherapy is very valuable in the treatment of Anxiety, Fears and Phobias. Sometimes only one or two sessions are required to help you change your situation, but more complex issues could require several sessions.  The approximate number of sessions required would be discussed at the initial consultation.   I would also offer you a free personalised recording, enabling you to continue to benefit from the process between appointments and to use forever.

See below for some more specific issues:


In today’s fast moving society, anxiety and stress starts younger and younger.  Hypnosis can be extremely effective in helping children and teenagers deal with their fears, phobias, anxieties and stress in a safe and nurturing environment.  I have 2 teenagers myself so understand how difficult this time can be with exam stress, friendship issues etc.  Before training to become a Hypnotherapist, I worked as a teaching assistant and Individual Special Needs Assistant for many years.  In fact, that is what inspired me to become a hypnotherapist as I saw first hand how stressed so many of the children were.  I am also a registered Chaperone and have a current DBS check.

Do you suffer with any of the following:  Feeling Sick/Butterflies in your Stomach, Anxiety,  Shakiness, Panic, Dry mouth, Fear that you might not remember all the things you have learnt or you may not run your fastest time in the race?

Hypnotherapy is often used very successfully for helping to increase self-belief and confidence.  It can be very useful to increase motivation, concentration, focus and relaxation. Using a combination of suggestion, visualisation and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) techniques amazing differences can be experienced, allowing you to feel calmer, more relaxed and in control whether making a speech, playing a football match, singing on stage or taking exams…

Whether you feel  ‘slightly nervous’or experience full-blown panic attacks, there is a way for you to resolve it and I am here to help you do that.

“Vanessa made me feel at ease straight away and the session was very interesting and powerful. I was very impressed with the way I felt afterwards and my phobia has since been a hundred times better. The aim of the session for me was to be able to ‘cope’ with spiders whenever I would encounter them in everyday life and so far I have managed to handle all encounters without panicking. Thanks again for your help!” – All the best, L

From NOW onwards, start thinking of yourself as someone who takes care of their nails.  As soon as you have that new belief firmly embedded, you will naturally STOP biting your nails.  Wouldn’t it be great if you could feel proud of your hands and never have to hide them and feel embarrassed by them again!

Cymatherapy is a form of audible sound and magnetic therapy. Its core principle is based upon the early work of pioneering scientists and medical researchers such as Dr Hans Jenny and Dr Peter Guy Manners who carried out research many years ago in Europe and discovered that ‘the rhythmic nature of sound produces a structuring and regulatory effect upon all substance’.

When the body and its integral energy fields are in a state of ‘disease’ their composite structures become chaotic and disorganised.

The resonant and rhythmic nature of specific sound and pulsed magnetic energy fields applied when using Cymatherapy is believed to assist the body in restoring its distorted physical and energetic structures back into a state of balance.
Cymatherapy is used to alleviate many physical, mental and energetic disturbances. Its soothing vibrational application makes each treatment both comfortable to administer and receive. Therapeutic effects of Cymatherapy are also easy to identify in the form of heat patterns, vibrational or subtle energy movements, which can be observed by both the practitioner and whoever is receiving the treatment.

How does it work?cyma picture
Cymatherapy works by using a computer (Cyma 1000) and a specially designed ergonomic applicator that is applied directly upon the body. Various acoustic sound and magnetic energy frequencies are applied during a treatment, which have harmonic ‘bio-resonant’ relationships with the vibrational frequencies that help to regulate structures and functions within the body. Cymatherapy can potentially support cellular and organ structures, as well as providing support to the more subtle energetic chakra and meridian systems that help govern our mental and spiritual health.

Cymatherapy has also been successfully used for pain management, addictions and stress reduction due to its ability to calm sensory nerves and restore balance to the more subtle energetic meridian and chakra systems.

Cymatherapy is not appropriate for those who are pregnant or have implanted electrical devices such as pacemakers.

Cymatherapy can also be easily and effectively combined with other forms of therapy during a treatment.

What to expect during a treatment
Upon receiving a comprehensive health assessment, a series of relevant frequencies will be applied to various parts of the body using the Cymatherapy applicator. You may feel a gentle and soothing vibration and warmth while the treatment is being applied. This treatment can often evoke a deep sense of relaxation and tension reduction. Treatment time can last between 30 minutes to an hour depending upon your needs.
