with Sophie West

I am an experienced and accredited practitioner, holding the nationally recognised Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy (DSFH). I also hold the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD)- the gold standard sector qualification awarded from the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH).  To qualify for this you have to have submitted and had validated (by the NCH) a large portfolio of work of which I am also a member (MNCHReg), abiding by their code of conduct and ethics.


I am one of the few hypnotherapists who have been awarded the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma AHD, it is the highest award in hypnotherapy, it is accredited by the NCFE and benchmarked at level 5, it is an equivalent level to a foundation degree.
I trained at Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training Centre in Bristol. This highly respected UK and International training body is accredited by leading professional national organisations including: The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH), The General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC), the National Board for Modern Psychotherapy (NBMP), and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

As a registered and accredited Clinical Hypnotherapist, I am required to participate in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) through workshops, courses, supervision and personal development.

I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy, Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapists, and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and is bound by their strict codes of practice.  I also maintain full public liability and professional Indemnity insurance and have enhanced DBS certificates.

My hypnotherapy sessions with Sophie have been very beneficial; calming, encouraging and deeply relaxing. She is professional and has a safe, calming presence. I have found her CD helpful and been able to deal with my driving phobia with more confidence.
