She is experienced in many areas including anxiety, insomnia, panic attacks, phobia, social anxiety, work-related stress, weight loss, confidence issues and helping to stop bad habits such as smoking.

Harriet Walker – Registered Hypnotherapist

Harriet practices solution-focused hypnotherapy, gaining her diploma from the highly regarded Clifton Practice in Manchester.  She has also been awarded the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma from the National Council for Hypnotherapy.

Harriet has enjoyed a wide and varied career in a number of senior positions within the university of Manchester, working with Nobel Laureates, professors, PHD students and undergraduates.

It was whilst working in academia that Harriet became interested in solution focused hypnotherapy, and how scientific techniques can help re-train the mind in helping an individual overcome issues of stress, fear, anxiety, compulsion and addiction.  Solution-focused hypnotherapy is based on the premise that mental focus on imagery and language mediates the physical and psychological effects of dominant ideas – in practice this basically means re-training the mind to overcome problematic issues quickly and effectively.

At home, Harriet is a mother to two young daughters and is a graduate from the university of Manchester.  She is a good listener and will offer help and support throughout your course of sessions; all she asks of a client is their commitment in wanting – and expecting – change to happen.
