My hypnotherapy practice is conveniently situated near Whitstable and Canterbury in Herne Bay, Kent, offering in-person sessions. Additionally, I provide online sessions to clients from anywhere in the UK.
How long are the sessions?
Typically, sessions last for about an hour. Certain treatments, such as smoking cessation, involve a single, extended 2-hour appointment.
Do you offer hypnotherapy packages?

This allows me to adjust my schedule accordingly. Please email me to initiate any changes, and I appreciate your adherence to this policy whenever possible.
How many sessions are typically required?
The number of sessions varies depending on individual needs and goals. Some clients experience significant progress in a few sessions, while others may benefit from more extended support. Treatment length is discussed at your initial consultation, and package options are available.
Are you registered and qualified as a hypnotherapist?
Absolutely. I trained at what is considered the gold standard for hypnotherapists, The Clifton Practice, obtaining a Diploma in Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy and a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma. In addition, I am registered with esteemed organisations, including the Association for Solution-Focused Hypnotherapists (AfSFH), the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

What can solution-focused hypnotherapy help with?
Solution-focused hypnotherapy can assist with a wide range of issues, including stress, anxiety, phobias, self-esteem, and more. It’s a versatile approach focused on positive change.
What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a safe, powerful psychotherapeutic tool grounded in neuroscience. Hypnosis or ‘trance’ is a very natural, relaxing state, encouraged by using guided relaxation, where the mind can relax and then focus on thoughts and suggestions that might be useful. Have you ever driven home and not remembered anything about the journey, or been engrossed in a book and not been conscious of time passing? If so, you’ve been in a state of focused attention, not unlike the feeling of being hypnotised.
Is solution-focused hypnotherapy suitable for everyone?
Yes, solution-focused hypnotherapy is generally suitable for individuals of various backgrounds and ages. However, I would always recommend using a qualified hypnotherapist to determine if it’s the right fit for your specific needs.
How does solution-focused hypnotherapy differ from traditional therapy?
Unlike traditional therapy, which may delve into past issues, solution-focused hypnotherapy primarily focuses on your desired future and solutions. It’s a forward-focused approach that leverages your strengths and resources for positive change.
What happens during a typical solution-focused hypnotherapy session?
A typical session involves discussing your goals, strengths, and the positive outcomes you want to achieve. You will then be guided into a relaxed state of hypnosis to help reframe negative thought patterns and foster lasting change.
Is hypnosis safe during solution-focused hypnotherapy?
Yes, the hypnosis used in solution-focused hypnotherapy is safe and guided by a trained professional. You remain in control throughout the process, and the goal is to help you achieve relaxation and positive change in a secure environment.
How does online hypnotherapy work?
Online hypnotherapy takes place through secure virtual platforms like Zoom. After scheduling your session, you’ll receive a link to our virtual meeting room. At the appointed time, you simply click the link to join the session from a quiet and comfortable space, just as you would for an in-person session.
Is online hypnotherapy as effective as in-person sessions?
Absolutely. Online hypnotherapy provides the same transformative benefits as in-person sessions. The process, techniques, and outcomes remain consistent, and many clients find the convenience of online sessions enhances their experience.
What technology do I need for online hypnotherapy?
All you need is a stable internet connection, a device (such as a computer, tablet, or smartphone), and a private space where you won’t be disturbed during the session.
Can I expect the same level of confidentiality with online sessions?
Yes, confidentiality is of the utmost importance, and our online sessions are conducted in a secure and private environment. The platforms we use adhere to strict privacy standards to ensure your information remains confidential.
Are there any specific requirements for the virtual session?
To make the most of your online hypnotherapy experience, ensure you have a comfortable space, a reliable internet connection, and a device with audio and video capabilities. Using headphones can enhance the audio quality and make the experience feel more private.
How do I book an online hypnotherapy session?
Booking an online session is simple. Just visit the bookings page and select a convenient time slot. After booking, you’ll receive confirmation details and a link to access the virtual session. It’s a hassle-free way to begin your journey towards positive change from wherever you are.
What Can Hypnotherapy Help With?
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.
