About me.

Barbara Hay Cognitive Hypnotherapist Dip Hyp CS. Dip C HYP. HPD. MNLP.Dip CP. I am a qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist and therapist and EFT practitioner. I specialise in helping children and adults  to be the best version of themselves.

Originally,  I trained with Chrysalis gaining a psychotherapy and counselling diploma I then went on to train at The Quest Institute. I consider myself fortunate to have been trained by Trevor Silvester, founder of the Quest Institute. I have been trained in the cutting edge of contemporary therapy, working in this way involves a higher level of skill than many traditional Hypnotherapy models, which depend mainly on using scripts to treat the problem.

I have also had the privilege of training with Russell Davies, co founder of the Baby Quest programme and Hugh Osborne, Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Addiction Specialist.

I am a trained EFT practitioner, having trained with Karl Dawson, the creator of Matrix Reimprinting. Karl  is one of only 29 EFT Masters worldwide.

I am trained to treat trauma using AMDR. AMDR is based on the clear understanding of the neuroscience underpinning every stage of the EMDR process. This is a more efficient and effective route to trauma memory and distressful thoughts.

I am  the founder of ‘Awesome Coaching for Kids which helps children and young people to identify and regulate their emotions, feel safe and to be the best version of themselves which means I can help younger children to recognise and regulate their emotions. I help children to take an active role in working through their issues and finding positive empowerment helping them to be the best version of themselves that they can be.

This means I have a huge range of skills and tools to help you make the changes you want to.

I am a member of the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) who promotes the highest professional standards in its members. Because of this, you can be certain that I happily adhere to their strict code of ethics and conduct. I have been awarded the NCH Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) which is the first nationally accredited hypnotherapy qualification awarded by the NCFE National Awarding Body. I am fully insured, as are all members of the CNHC, and am totally committed to undertake continuous professional development (CPD) so that you can be assured that I have access to the most up to date techniques available. I am fully trained in Safeguarding Adults and Children and hold an up to date DBS certificate.

You will find me friendly and approachable. I will not judge you nor ‘diagnose’ you. I will listen to you, I will empathise with your situation. I will work with you to find your perfect solution state. I will not label you or your problem, you already know what the problem is and you already know what the solution is; I will help you find it. I will help you to make the changes in you so you can live your life differently.    Give me a call on 07786314901 for a friendly informal chat.
