About


Welcome to Q-Hypnosis! My name is Yvonne and I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, registered with the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council.  I work in many areas of hypnotherapy, specialising in helping people with anxiety and stress related difficulties. I also work with weight loss, phobias, confidence issues, dealing with trauma and quitting smoking. I work with people of all ages; I have worked with individuals as young as 7 all the way up to 88! I work with individuals, couples and groups and enjoy helping people to find personalised solutions to their problems.

Society today places lots of pressures on us and we are always planning ahead or dwelling on the past. I firmly believe that each of us has the power to reprogram our responses to life and our environment. My goal in life is to empower people to deal with these pressures by equipping them with skills such as self-hypnosis and mindfulness. My approach to hypnotherapy is to work with you on a solution that is realistic and unique to you.

I also offer specialist support for parents/ carers (including expectant parents/carers) or anyone who works with children and young people. I have over 25 years experience of working and lecturing in the fields of Psychology, Education and Childcare.

It's all about you.....

Attending hypnotherapy can feel like a big step. I'm here to make that step as comfortable as possible and explain the whole treatment to you and let you decide if it is the right thing for you.
