Clinical Hypnotherapy For Menopause

RGN, BSc (Health Studies/Nursing), HPD, DSFH, DSFBT, CHS Dip Med

I am a Registered Nurse and fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and Solution Focused Therapist, with a special interest in women's health, especially menopause. I have completed professional training with The British Menopause Society and Newson Health Menopause Society. I am a member of The British Menopause Society, NMC and RCN.

Menopause and perimenopause is a time in a woman's life which can bring many changes, which can sometimes feel daunting and challenging.

By using Clinical Hypnotherapy I can help you to feel better, live happier and to adjust. Imagine how wonderful it would be embracing your new self.

Clinical Hypnotherapy can help alleviate some of the symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flushes, stress, anxiety and panic attacks. As well as sleep problems, weight gain, low self esteem, lack of confidence and motivation, IBS and many more.

I can show you how to manage physical and psychological symptoms through various 'self-hypnosis' techniques where you are in control the whole time. Empowering you to take charge and ultimately enabling you to feel more positive and uplifted.

Clinical Hypnotherapy for Menopause

Supporting your wellbeing

I currently work as a Practice Nurse in a busy doctor's surgery in Somerset.

My Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practice is based in Winscombe, Somerset. I also take referrals from Cowan House, Weston Super Mare.

I am also a tutor at The Clinical Hypnotherapy School where I deliver a CPD on menopause.

I have worked in the NHS for over 20 years. Becoming a nurse came from a desire to care for people at their time of need. I became interested in hypnotherapy when I wanted a way to help people to live better emotionally and physically. 

My interest in menopause began when I was approaching the age when menopause symptoms start. I have always had an interest in mental health and wellbeing, yet I did not realise how many psychological symptoms were associated with menopause and perimenopause and this is when my interest grew. I also mistakenly thought that I would not be able to take HRT because I have migraines with aura, yet I can! HRT is the best way to treat menopause and perimenopause however, some women either can’t or don’t want to take it and hypnotherapy is perfectly placed to help with some of the associated physical and psychological symptoms. I believe that taking HRT it is an individual choice and I do not judge or persuade this decision. Menopause not only affects the woman but their family, friends, work colleagues and everyone she has contact with, yet it's common to also feel isolated, alone and misunderstood.

By using evidence based practice, I can help you to feel better emotionally and physically, increasing the joy in your life, helping you to see this time as an opportunity, to realise how much wisdom and life experience you have and how much more you have to offer. Together we can work towards changing your attitude and the way you cope with and manage this wonderful time of life.

Embrace this time in your life and be the best version of you
