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. Whether you struggle with weight loss, or poor sleep I am sure you agree that us humans pick up various coping strategies throughout life that may not be very helpful for us to remain calm, in control and confident.
With Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, a fast growing 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. It uses practical, modern and well researched strategies, drawing from NLP and CBT, to help people make significant, positive and lasting changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time.
I practice from in East Sheen, South West London only minutes drive from Richmond, Kew, Barnes and Putney.
It's helpful to know a little about the past, but more importantly, train the mind to move on
I use a structured approach to develop clear goals and actions to help you achieve your desired result
I design all my hypnotherapy scripts according to the needs of each client
“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.”

“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."
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
This varies from client to client, however most clients benefit from at least 4-6 session as the mind needs repetition to change neural pathways of thinking and behaviour that are unhelpful.
When it comes to stubborn weight loss or ingrained anxiety and depression 10-12 sessions tend to be normal. Some clients come for top ups years after having first seen me – often when life throws them a curve ball or just to maintain a sound mind. It is a very individual process and some notices results faster than others. You will gradually start to notice small signs that you are thinking and behaving differently in situations that previously used to trigger you.
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.

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!
