What Can Hypnotherapy Help With?
Hi, I’m Zoe!
I provide a safe space for you to grow, evolve and become your best self.
My name is Zoe McAlpine, and I’m the heart and soul behind Thistle Green Hypnotherapy. I have a true passion for guiding individuals towards positive change and helping them unlock their full potential through the power of hypnotherapy.
My own journey into hypnotherapy began with a fascination for the intricate workings of the mind and a deep desire to make a meaningful impact in people’s lives. After working in teaching (among a few careers, I’ve lived many lives!), I embarked on a path of learning and growth that led me to the world of hypnotherapy.
With years of experience and a commitment to ongoing education, I’ve witnessed the incredible impact that hypnotherapy can have on individuals seeking relief from stress, anxiety, and other challenges. My approach is rooted in empathy, understanding, and creating a safe space for each individual’s unique journey. Whether you’re looking to overcome obstacles, enhance your well-being, or simply discover a greater sense of balance, I’m here to support you.
Client Success Stories
"Relaxed & Ready To Give Birth"
I understood the basic principle of hypnobirthing, but I didn’t know exactly what to expect from our sessions – I had hoped that it would result in a labour experience involving as little medical intervention as possible, and whilst I have not yet given birth, I am in the most relaxed and positive mindset possible. Not only do I feel relaxed and ready to give birth, but the sessions have allowed me to handle the usual day to day pressures of work, life, and planning for the baby’s arrival with ease.
"Changed My Life"
Hypnotherapy has been one of the best decisions I have made for myself in a very long time. Zoe was so supportive throughout and helped me through so many twists and turns that life threw at me. I was unsure of what to expect from our sessions as I had never tried hypnotherapy before, but I am so shocked and surprised at the impact it has had on my life and my thought processes. I would highly recommend Zoe to anyone struggling with confidence problems and anxiety; she has honestly changed my life for the better 🙂
"I Had Tried Almost Everything"
I had tried almost everything to treat my anxiety. I came across hypnotherapy, and I’m so glad I took the leap to give it a go! Zoe is incredibly knowledgeable in her field and a very welcoming individual who makes you feel instantly at ease. I leave each session feeling lighter, calmer, and more equipped to take on challenges. Solution focused hypnotherapy has been the best investment I have made for myself, and I would recommend anyone struggling with anxiety, confidence, or low mood to give it a go!
"Built Up My Confidence"
It could help you just like it helped me. I was having bad days and hadn’t realised how many things were bothering me. I wake up feeling better and not stressed. You have built up my confidence, and now I feel I can conquer what life throws at me without bursting into tears! I am calm, confident, and fully prepared. I wasn’t sure I believed it could work, but it definitely has!
"My Experience Was Amazing"
I began working with Zoe because I was suffering from insomnia, anxiety, and stress. My experience was amazing, Zoe is friendly, professional, and talks you through every step of the way. This process has changed the way I think about things, I have rationalised my thought process, and it has given me my confidence back. I would recommend Zoe to anyone, and if you are thinking about hypnotherapy, then go for it. It has helped me more than I could ever have imagined.
"Helped Me Feel More In Control"
Working with Zoe, I felt well supported, listened to, and received some useful information to help me reframe, understand, and address my situation. I came for help because I had had a year of poor sleep, and problems with stress and anxiety affecting my digestion and causing discomfort and pain. Now my stress is much reduced, I feel less anxious, and when I use the techniques provided, I do sleep better. It has improved my confidence that I can do something to help myself. I would encourage everyone to try hypnotherapy, especially if they are overwhelmed by physical or emotional feelings. It helped me feel more in control rather than being controlled.
