Change your mind, change your life

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a cutting edge contemporary therapeutic approach. Dynamic, personalised and tailored to your needs; if you choose to work with me we can make effective changes in around 6 to 9 sessions.

Why Cognitive Hypnotherapy

I passionately believe that we all can have the life we want, it’s just that most people do not  realise that it is possible. We can feel happy and fulfilled, confident and in control. We can have happy relationships and successful careers. Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a effective model for helping people make the changes they want, to change their perspective or get rid of life limiting beliefs and move from the negative to the positive. These changes can happen over a  short period of time and the affects can be amazing whether it’s losing a fear or phobia that restricts your life or finding the confidence in you that helps you move forward in a relationship or your working life.

It is important to know that the hypnotherapy part of this powerful therapy approach is just one tool in the tool box. I use the best techniques from other proven therapeutic models to facilitate fundamental change also.

Why Cognitive Hypnotherapy is successful for so many people

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is not the same as clinical or traditional hypnotherapy. Clinical and traditional hypnotherapy focuses on the problem rather than how the individual ‘does the problem’  which means the issue is treated the same way for everyone. Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a dynamic solution focused therapy. We recognise that everyone is different, everyone sees the world differently and therefore we treat everyone differently. I can see 4 clients with the same presenting issue in any one week however every client’s treatment will be unique. I tailor the treatment to fit the client, this way the treatment proves to be quicker, successful and empowering.

  • "Barbara has a natural gift for the incredible work that she does.  Initially, before visiting the Natural Therapy Centre for a consultation, I was heavily sceptical.  I had previously tried traditional counselling but had had some bad experiences with therapists and did not find traditional counselling very effective.
    When I met Barbara, she was warm, knowledgeable and genuinely passionate about her work.  From the get go, I felt comfortable, able to talk through personal problems free of judgement and knew instantly Barbara was someone who could relate to my problems and who I could work with.  She has wide-ranging expertise and draws on different techniques, such as Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and the exercises are heavily visual.
    It helps to arrive to sessions with an inquisitive mindset, willing to test the boundaries of your own mind, and explore the limitations of your thoughts and behaviour.  I was genuinely surprised by the changes I was able to make, with Barbara's guidance, and the progress I was able to cover over a relatively short space of time.
    It is recommended to keep a mental note of what you would like to achieve over the course of your therapy session(s), but it is a truly worthwhile investment in yourself and your mental wellbeing."
  • Since seeing Barbara I can honestly say she has changed my life around. I have had no panic attacks at all, I am more open and more social and I walk in to work straight away. I have had life throw some stuff at me and it wasn't until a couple of days after I had realised this would normally make me panic and increase my anxiety but it hasn't. What an incredible and professional lady, I've already recommended her to so many people with all the help she has given me I believe other people can benefit from seeing her for their own reasons. A five star business and I will never look back. Thank you for everything".

  • "I sought help from Barbara Hay for issues of anger and alcohol abuse and the consequential damage being suffered in my marriage. Her approach is totally professional, good humoured and empathetic and she achieved major, positive results with me in a relatively short time. In my direct experience, the effects of her therapies are nothing short of miraculous and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone seeking help and sustained relief from unwanted behavioural and addiction issues in their life"

  • "At a stage in my life when I needed support, Barbara was there to help me. We worked together through the sessions with no pressure from her, all led by me and my feelings. A great support in a time of need"
