What is Hypnotherapy?

 CALL ANN TODAY 07967 881372 


Hypnotherapy is a natural healing of mind and body through deep relaxation and heightened awareness induced by direct suggestions.

Hypnosis is becoming more accepted as a therapy for many emotional and mental problems where the use of medication is sometimes felt to be inappropriate or could possibly result in unpleasant side effects.

Hypnotherapy can be applied to a wide range of medical, dental and psychological problems. Areas of application include anxiety and stress conditions, weight control, addictive behaviours (including smoking and alcohol) and confidence issues. Hypnotherapy is also used to enhance performance in several areas such as sport and public speaking

What happens during Therapy?

Clinic at Bridgehouse, Shepley

Initially a free, no obligation consultation takes place online via Zoom. This allows you to meet or chat with me to see if the Therapy, and most importantly myself - the Therapist, is the right one for you. It is important that we get along and that you feel comfortable with me as your therapist.

Following the initial consultation your first appointment is arranged. During this session I will give you an outline of the treatment plan.

During the Therapy session We induce trance state either through a guided calm relaxation/inward focus/other techniques appropriate for you. Once the hypnotic state is achieved, different techniques & protocols are applied to help you make positive changes in line with your current needs. This is the part of the treatment we call therapy and can take in the form of suggestions, regression work, analysis or other techniques.

Following this I will then bring you into a gentle normal waking consciousness and the session and any follow-up treatments are discussed.

After the session you will remember everything fully and completely.

For online Therapy sessions you will need a Laptop/Tablet/iPad/PC, a reliable internet connection, set of ear phones/headset and can connect via Zoom.

GDPR Privacy Policy


I take the privacy rights of my patients very seriously. This privacy policy sets out how I deal with your ‘personal information’, that is, information that could identify, or is related to the identity of, an individual.

What personal information do I collect?

In order to treat you, I will ask you to provide certain information. This includes:

· Name

· Gender

· Date of birth

· Home address

· Email address

· Telephone number

· Medical history.

To this, over time, I will add details of the issues for which you have consulted me and the treatment plan that I have recommended.

How do I collect this personal information?

All the information collected is obtained directly from you. This is usually at the point of your initial consultation. The information is collected via a ‘Client Record form’ which we complete together during the initial consultation. In order for me to treat you effectively I do need to obtain this information from you; the gathering and processing of this information is covered under the legal base of ‘legitimate interests’ and this term is defined within data protection regulation and law. All changes to this policy or the way in which your data will be processed will be discussed with you.

How do use this personal information?

I use your personal information to analyse the issues for which you have consulted me and to recommend your treatment plan.

I will communicate with you by email, other digital methods, by telephone and by post.

With whom do I share your personal information?

I will not disclose any personal information that I hold on you to any unrelated third party, except where required by law.

How long do I keep your personal information?

I need to keep your information for as long as you continue to consult me. Since clients often return for more consultations after a period of absence, I will keep your information for seven years after your last consultation. In the case of children, 7 years after their 18th Birthday. At that point, your file will be securely destroyed and any digital information will be erased from my computer systems.

How your information can be updated or corrected?

To ensure that I have accurate and up-to-date information, you need to inform me of any changes you believe I should make to the personal information I hold. You can do this by contacting me by any of the methods previously described.

Under data protection legislation, you have the right to inspect the personal information I hold about you. You can make a request to do so by contacting me and I will endeavour to respond within 14 working days.

How do I store your personal information?

My client files are paper-based and are held securely within my locked filing cabinet in my home. I take steps to protect your personal information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification.

Your email address, if you have one, is held securely on the servers of my email providers, currently Google mail.

Changes to this policy

This policy may change from time to time. If I make any material changes, I will make you aware of them.
