IVF anxiety help manchester

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. She was particularly interested in how evidence-based techniques can help re-train the mind to overcome 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 means re-training the mind to overcome problematic issues quickly and effectively.

Harriet is the mother of two young daughters.  She is an excellent 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.

Zoe Johnson – Registered Hypnotherapist

Tinnitus treatment Manchester

I’m a fully qualified clinical hypnotherapist and life coach. I’m registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register.

I have always had an interest in people, and in helping them be the best they can. But didn’t initially follow a career path that allowed me to develop this further. After graduating from University I worked in marketing for many years.

After having children I wanted a change in direction that would allow me to pursue a fulfilling career.

Completing my Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy was a milestone for me. I love my work, and what it allows me to achieve, in helping people in so many ways.

Clients say that they love how well listened to they feel with me, as well as the amazing results they achieve. I’m passionate about helping people make the changes they need to move forward with their lives with confidence and happiness.
