I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist and run a busy practice in Horspath, Oxfordshire. My practice is in a quiet village location with convenient off road parking. I am just five miles from Oxford, four miles from the M40 and an hour from London. My clients come from Oxford, surrounding towns and counties.
Prior to setting up my Hypnotherapy practice, I worked within the Police service. I have over 14 years experience in both operational and non-operational police roles. Delivery of excellent service has always been one of my key priorities, whether responding to a member of the public or coaching a member of the police. Having worked for many years in police training and coaching, I am accustomed to delivering to large groups and also working one to one with individuals. I have taught many subjects including law, psychology, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), mental health and stress management.
As a Clinical Hypnotherapist I continue to help people by supporting my clients, adapting my style to suit their individual needs and seeing them achieve the positive changes they strive for. I thoroughly enjoy being a hypnotherapist and have a natural affinity for helping people. I work with clients to help them make their desired changes and achieve their best possible outcomes. Clients often just need a little help to recognise the resources they already possess and educating them as to how their brain chemistry works helps enormously with this. One of the benefits of Solution Focused Therapy is that clients achieve change in a relatively short period of time, (many of my clients report significant changes after a couple of sessions or less). Another benefit of Solution Focused Therapy is that we focus on what you want to achieve, rather than your past and what led to you requiring help in the first place.
As a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, I trained with the respected Bristol based Clifton Practice (CPHT). I hold both the Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) and the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (The HPD is considered to be the gold standard of hypnotherapy qualifications). I am a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH), the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). These organisations ensure that their members adhere to their professional codes of practice, ethical standards, the data protection act and keep their skills up to date. The CNHC in particular was set up with governmental support to provide the public with an assured list of therapeutic practitioners.

When hypnotherapy was initially suggested I wasn’t sure what it entailed, Steph explained fully and answered all my questions, no matter how many questions I had. I came to Steph, for help with my mindset, maintaining a healthy life without taking medication, along with a healthy sleep pattern.
After each session I felt better. Every time I returned, I had made lots of progress by completing simple positive things, such as eating properly, football training and being able to focus better for longer periods of time.
I still utilise the hypnotherapy way of relaxing regularly, have made huge progress at work and have lost weight (2.5 stone) as well. Thanks to Steph I have made huge leaps forward within my life, I would definitely recommend Steph and her hypnotherapy to absolutely anyone. Thank you so much Steph for all your help and support.
