I have been working as a hypnotherapist in Andover since 2011 and have worked with a huge range of anxiety issues in that time. Clients come to me in my clinic if they live locally or use our online Telehealth system from across the UK and Ireland.
Common issues I work with include generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), panic attacks, social anxiety, health anxiety, phobias, performance anxiety such as public speaking or competing and anxiety around specific events such as driving tests or speaking at a wedding.
By using a range of techniques alongside therapeutic hypnosis I am able to tailor sessions to your individual needs and make sure we have a clear plan about how we are going to achieve your goals.
I started studying hypnotherapy initially after hypnotherapy helped me with my anxiety in my early twenties. My anxiety and mental health struggles at the time lead me to fail my first degree. Having qualified as a hypnotherapist, I was keen to understand as much as I could about my own mental health and how I can help others. I finally passed my undergraduate degree in 2018 and then graduated with a masters in psychology, with merit, in 2021. I have also completed courses in cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy and counselling to supplement my work.
As well as qualifications it is important that you feel comfortable and confident working with any therapist. My clients report that I am an empathetic listener and non-judgmental, I am also able to adapt my approach depending on what you feel you need most. I would strongly recommend booking the free phone consultation so that we can see if we are a good fit to work together.
In 2017, my husband and I bought the clinic we were working from and created YMYB Health and Wellness Centre. Our clinic has three treatment rooms and I am fortunate enough to work with a chiropractor, remedial massage therapist and an aromatherapist in a clinic designed to work with Your Mind and Your Body.
As well as my work I also volunteer with the Andover Riding for the Disabled branch, where I am currently training to be a coach and help organise two of our children’s rides. I also ran the 2020 Virtual London Marathon to raise money for the branch as it struggled through lockdown.
My volunteer work means that I have also undergone extensive safeguarding training and have a clear, enhanced DBS check.
What People Say
Both myself and my driving instructor firmly agree that me passing my test was due to the support and guidance received from Siobhan. She was incredible at putting my worries into perspective and helping me realise that my anxiety was something I could control. I can not recommend her enough!!Kayleigh
I needed somebody desperately to offer me guidance to steady myself. Siobhan helped me make sense of my Anxious self, to normalise it and give me the tools to make life a lot easier. Siobhan offers a very calming antidote to the muddled me I presented to her, which worked wonders in making me a better version of myself! Thank you.Kirsty
Went for several sessions and found an improvement in myself very quickly. Have been provided with some very simple techniques that I have taken in to real life situations so that I can manage myself so much better. Since then I have not looked back. I really cannot recommend highly enough.Christopher
