Why Choose Hypnolight for Therapy?

There are many people who offer hypnotherapy and psychotherapy services, so you’re probably wondering why you should choose me? Well, you can find out more about me on another page of my site, but you can also see a list of my training, education and qualifications below.

My Educational Qualifications

2014-2017 – Diploma in Hypno-psychotherapy (National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy, London). I’m currently working towards registration as a psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

2013 – PGCert Occupational Psychology (Birkbeck University of London). I focused on training and development as it is another area of interest for me. I also did a course on psychometric testing (NEO-PR).

2006-2010 – 1st class Psychology Degree BSc Hons (Queen Margaret University Edinburgh). For my undergraduate dissertation I collaborated with Crossreach, a charity that provides mental health services for post-natal depression (PND). It was a pilot study researching the effectiveness of brief group therapy for the treatment of PND. They experienced an increased number of referrals from the NHS without any extra funding so they had to come up with a novel idea to cope with the number of clients. Crossreach then used my research to apply for funding from the Scottish Government.
