It's helpful to know a little about the past, but more importantly, train the mind to move on and focus on what you would want life to be like.
I use a structured approach to develop clear goals and actions to help you achieve your desired result
I will design a tailored hypnotherapy plan for your unique personal needs to ensure your sessions are as effective as possible
When we are feeling low or anxious, sometimes the hardest part is to know what to do next. If you've never asked for help before it can feel new and uncomfortable. Anxiety hijacks us and we start to belive we are not good enough, that life is difficult and hard. You may feel resistant to get help or have lots of questions you want answered which is why I am offering a free 30 minute Discovery Call to see if hypnotherapy could be right for you.
When I ring we’ll have a friendly and informal chat to give you a chance to explain, in your own words, what may be troubling you. This typically will feel strangely liberating, since you have taken a small but important step to address something that is not working in your life.
No problem is too big or small and chances are I will have heard it before. My clients find it very comforting to know that they are not alone in feeling worried or anxious and this in itself can relieve any feelings of weakness or shame. It can even spark hope that there may be a way out of feeling the way you do. The confidential phone call is aimed at putting you at ease and for you to feel free to ask any questions you may have about your current life situation, hypnotherapy or what working with me could look like.
If we start working together, I will begin to construct a tailored solution focused hypnotherapy plan personalised just for you so you can begin the journey to a happier and more fulfilled life.
When you visit my practice I will help you find new and positive ways to cope with and overcome debilitating anxiety and overwhelm that can manifests itself in so many ways. As humans, we can pick up various coping strategies throughout life that may not be very helpful for us to remain calm, in control and confident.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a fast and highly effective branch of hypnotherapy. You can rest assured that you will receive a gentle yet effective approach, that focuses on finding solutions to problems without excessive dwelling on your past. I use practical, modern and well researched strategies, drawing from NLP, CBT and solution focused BRIEF therapy, to help people make significant, positive and lasting changes in their lives in a short period of time.
I practice from in East Sheen, South West London only minutes drive from Richmond, Kew, Barnes and Putney. I am fully insured and hold an enhanced CRB licence to work with both children and adults.

“I have been seeing Birgitta weekly now for about 6 weeks and as early as after our first session I noticed subtle changes in my own behaviour and thinking. I am working with self-confidence issues, negative thought spirals and I’m also trying to change my relationship with alcohol as I use it to dampen feelings. Birgitta is very insightful and truly has a gift. Her approach is methodical and direct. I could not recommend her more highly.”
East Sheen, London
“My sessions with Birgitta have been a life changing. I used to get really cross with most people, especially my kids, and I was always anxious, feeling I had not done enough. Through hypnosis with Birgitta I have learned that only I am in charge of my future and that my thoughts shape my reality. I love, love, love the deep relaxation and will come back for a top up when life gets the better of me. Thank you."
“I had reached a point where I knew I didn’t know how to manage the upcoming changes in my life, and I felt none of my friends or family could help either. I was panicking and feeling very depressed. That’s the point when I searched for someone and I was extremely fortunate to find Birgitta. From my first meeting with Birgitta, simply talking through and verbalising my issues was a great relief.
Birgitta gently asked questions and then asked me what might some potential solutions look like, and how might I put those into practice. She then did a visualisation hypnosis session, which reinforced some of the desired feelings and actions we had discussed. Birgitta explained how our brains work under pressure and why we sometimes make poor decisions, and she also helped me to understand what exactly I had been fretting about, and helped me devise solutions that worked for me”
East Sheen, London
My private practice is located at 151 Sheen Lane, East Sheen, London S14 8LR
I charge £100 for a 1 hour hypnotherapy session
I also sell discounted sessions in a package of 6: £570 and a package of 10: £930
If you have to cancel your hypnotherapy appointment, please give me at least 24 hours notice. This ensures fairness to other clients who are waiting for an appointment. Room charges still have to be paid regardless of whether or not it is used. Missed appointments or appointments that are rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice will be charged at the full rate. Please ensure you are on time for your appointment. It is likely that there will be an appointment booked immediately after yours and as a result any lateness will reduce the time available for your session.
I trained at The Clifton Practice, where I also gained my Higher Practitioner Diploma (HPD) which is known as the gold standard of hypnotherapy training and the Clifton Practice is widely recognised as a centre for excellence.
I am fully insured, with an enhanced DBS certificate, which allows me to work with both adults and children. I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), the Association for Solution focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) as well as the the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and the National Council of Psychotherapists (NCP) which means that I adhere to their strict code of conduct.
Hypnotherapists like other health professionals cannot guarantee results. I do however guarantee you will be satisfied with our session together and feel like it has been of value in helping you get closer to your desired result. If after attending any face-to-face therapy session with me you are unsatisfied with how it went then I will be more than happy to offer another session FREE of charge or refund the cost of the session. I am giving you a risk free way to see if hypnotherapy will help you, so now you have nothing to lose!
