Hello, my name is Chrissy Huffman and I’d like to tell you how I became a Hypnotherapist.

I left the Ambulance Service after 15 years of service, due to long shifts, nights and exhaustion. I thought, that time and rest would recharge and mend me however even after many months I was not where I wanted to be. So I did some research into therapies and discovered that Hypnotherapy is able to work quickly, achieve goals and all without having to digging up the past.

After my first session my mind was clearer, I was more focused and resilient. It was as if a great weight had been lifted. After experiencing this real change for myself it made total sense to train and become a hypnotherapist.

I do not use scripts. We are all unique so your therapy needs to be tailor-made for you and your needs. I use something called solution-focused therapy as well as Hypnotherapy. The session will involve an initial conversation. This will enable me to get to know you, find your clear goals (solution-focused therapy). This conversation then transitions into hypnotherapy, where I will be able use the information you provide to connect with the unconscious mind.

The unconscious mind stores unhelpful patterns, bad habits, unwanted beliefs and emotions. These have been imbedded by unhelpful influences from people, experiences and destructive thoughts.

With deeply relaxing hypnosis I will enable your mind to move on from the issue you want to let go of and put you on the path to your brighter future.

I am able to help you in a profound and significant way. I have worked with my clients to:

stop smoking after 40 years

sleep better after years of difficulty

clear traumatic memories & moving on

lose weight after years of diets

to name but a few.

Sessions last between 60 and 90 minutes and cost £100

It often happens that people notice a real change after just one session and for some people this is enough. However for long-lasting changes to more deeply entrenched problems you may benefit more from a short course of sessions. I will be able to give you a clear idea of what to expect at your first session and I am always happy to answer any questions you may have. You are free to take a break from a course of sessions at any time if you wish.

All you need to bring with you is an open mind

I am registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register, which protects the public and promotes good practice. I maintain continuous professional development (CPD) to further build on my skills.

With hypnotherapy and solution-focused therapy I can support you to…

* break bad habits * build relationships * ease pain * extinguish anger * feel calmer * feel relaxed * find focus * grow self-esteem * stop that busy mind * improve creativity * overcome fear * overcome grief * overcome phobias * perform better * put traumatic memories in the past * regain confidence * relieve anxiety * relieve stress * sleep better * stop compulsive behaviour * let go of the past * lose weight * maintain motivation * overcome depression * stop smoking * stop addictions

My insomnia had become increasingly worse as the pressure to juggle work and real life intensified - three gorgeous children and my role as a lecturer never let up! I’d tried giving up caffeine, alcohol, exercising more, exercising less, apps, but nothing worked. My sleep pattern was erratic and it was making me more and more anxious. I had one session with Chrissy and was amazed at the results. Chrissy is a calm and patient practitioner, she tuned in to my specific issues and worked with me on techniques to help me relax. She was attentive and professional and I felt at ease but the session was purposeful. Having established my needs, Chrissy then led me through a hypnotherapy session and by the end I felt soothed and relaxed. I didn’t have huge expectations from one session, I’d enjoyed it and it felt positive which seemed enough.

Since then however, my sleep has improved dramatically. The white noise and tossing and turning have stopped and I now confidently expect to get a full night’s sleep. It has made such a difference and I feel ready to face the challenges and joys each day brings. Knowing I can go back to Chrissy for further treatments is really reassuring and I absolutely will. I would recommend Chrissy to anyone who like me, feels there’s no solution - now I know, there is!

I have had 1 session with Chrissy. The focus was on weight loss, I wasn't convinced I was hypnotisable, never mind that it could work. Chrissy talked to me about my hopes and habits before starting the hypno part of the session. She tapped into my love of nature and history on a subconscious level, talking quietly to me whilst I closed my eyes and relaxed. 2 months on, I have lost a stone and a half, 9 cm around my waist-line and am fitting into clothes I had abandoned to younger days. I've completely lost the desire for chocolate, cake and most food that comes packaged. Great result. I am thrilled!

Chrissy is very calm and knowledgeable with an amazing gentle voice and approach. …I went and saw her because I was very anxious about traveling anywhere and using any form of transportation, especially alone. Even on the day I saw her I was extremely anxious and by the end of her approach and skills I was so relaxed and calm and now I am going everywhere, on my own. Using transportation, and if there’s a diversion, I’m very calm, relaxed and figure it out. Most of all I enjoy traveling now. While before I would hyperventilate, get cold and sweaty, panicky and so stressed out that I chicken out and go back. Or even I won’t travel, I cancel. Chrissy is a very passionate, caring therapist. I recommend her to any one. If you want to change your life, believe me, Chrissy is the right person.

Chrissy Huffman is an amazing person, and when we had our first session together, she amazed me at how she easily connected to me and knew what I needed and wanted. She was able to make a place aside, where I can come and go from, set goals, gain achievements and release some frustrations. I left feeling more relaxed, less stressed and in control of what was going to happen next in my life, which was a massive career change and not just for me but for my family life too. I trust Chrissy not only with my mind but with my feelings and emotions, she was professional and very caring.

Past issue

Chrissy is an understanding, intuitive therapist who ensures that time spent with her is enjoyable and relaxing. We worked together to resolve a past issue that was causing problems for me in the present and after just one session the results were evident. I have no hesitation in returning to Chrissy in the future if I need support, or in recommending her to others.

Past issues

I recently saw a hypnotist named Chrissy about a few problems I had. I had some issues regarding abuse when I was a child. Over the years I have found that I have self-sabotaged a lot in my life. Whether it be relationships or social situations. These problems would arise mainly when I had been drinking heavily. I would go back to the problems in my past and let out my frustrations.

Anyway I asked Chrissy not for help to stop drinking. But for help letting go of the past. From the moment I was in a trance to now. I am pleased to say that I have been able to laugh off the bad things that have happened in my life. I have also had a problem with my nail biting. I have always done it since I remember and I don't know where it stems from. My nails looked horrible as I was constantly biting them. Now I'm not going to lie. There are occasions where I might still have a nibble. But I can go for a week or two without feeling the need. This is something that I do believe I can stop doing.

Since seeing Chrissy I have not felt the need to have a drink like I used to. I am feeling a lot stronger in myself. Because of this I am determined to stop biting my nails and I know I will succeed. I have seen doctors numerous times over the years for help dealing with my issues. Being a spiritual person I have found that pills don't normally work. If anyone wants to be hypnotised but are sceptical, don't be. With Chrissy you are in safe hands and really puts you at ease.

I found Chrissy very reassuring, as I was slightly apprehensive about discussing a long-standing issue, which I couldn’t resolve on my own. It was a revelation when she quickly identified that my resistance to change was because of a fear my problem would move to the opposite extreme. The alternative perspectives experienced during Chrissy's techniques helped me gain awareness of the possible causes and clarity on how it impacted other areas in my life. Her amazing knowledge and ability has given me confidence in situations that I used to find stressful and try to avoid. The freedom that has come from this has not only improved my life but also of those close to me.
