What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is a completely natural state that you probably enter and leave automatically several times a day. For example, when daydreaming, driving down the motorway, watching a good movie or reading a book. Hypnotherapy actively seeks to recreate this relaxed state in the client, as it is in this state of relaxation that your subconscious is most open to receiving new ideas. Except the ideas are generally not new! They are probably ways of thinking or behaving that your conscious mind has desired for a long time.

Hypnotherapy provides a way to get your subconscious mind to adopt the thoughts and behaviours you desire by temporarily bypassing any conscious thoughts to the contrary. And since the subconscious is where all of our automatic thought processes and actions originate, this is just what we need in order to make positive changes in our lives with immediate effect.

Can Hypnotherapy take place via Zoom or Skype?

Yes, in fact, there can be advantages. The online experience allows you to relax in your own quiet space, without the need to travel and the direct connection to the therapist’s voice through headphones could result in a heightened hypno-therapeutic experience.

About me

I live and practice hypnotherapy in Nottinghamshire. I have been a secondary school teacher for 30 years and I am still a teacher. I love my job. I am also a realist. What appeals to me hugely about hypnotherapy is that, contrary to popular belief, its success is entirely routed in logic and common sense. We are all aware that many of our everyday decisions are made automatically, by our subconscious minds: so it makes perfect sense to access our subconscious directly if we want to alter those unhelpful automatic thoughts.

I aim to provide a safe and empathetic environment in which we can explore the best way forward for you. I hold a Certificate in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills and am presently completing a three year Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I have a Level 3 award in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and a Level 4 award in Advanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I am a member of both the National Hypnotherapy Society and the National Counselling Society, both accredited organisations.


“I can fully recommend Briony’s hypnotherapy service. Very professional. And what’s more, it works. I have always understood that the subconscious is responsible for many of our automatic actions/reactions and these sessions gave me the chance to focus in and recondition my thinking in a relaxed, fully aware, state of mind.”

Male age 56

“I would highly recommend hypnotherapy with Briony. It’s an extremely relaxing experience. I felt focussed and positive after each session. Hypnotherapy helped me reach my fitness and weight loss goals. What’s amazing is that after the sessions were completed I continued to achieve great results..”

Female age 52

“Briony made me feel totally comfortable and at ease for each session we had, whilst also keeping me informed about the process and staying focussed on my end goals. Not only did hypnotherapy help me in achieving my goals, it also became something I really looked forward to each week to help me relax and ‘switch off.”

Male age 32

“Don’t wait any longer. Start making
changes to improve your life today.”
