About Ailsa

Ailsa has run east cheshire hypnotherapy for 16 years

I spent my early years into my 30's working in the super-yacht industry. This took me around the world enabling me to explore and experience different belief systems, cultures and mindsets, which in turn broadened my perspective and offered me the opportunity to attend many workshops, conferences and lectures on philosophy, psychology and consciousness.  

It soon became apparent that the core theme always seemed to be the subconscious mind, which underpins our decision making, beliefs and how we interact with others. I felt compelled to learn more and deepen my understanding so made the decision to return to the UK to train and gain qualifications in the field of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy. Over the last 16 years I've had the privilege and opportunity to help many individuals improve their mental and emotional wellbeing. 

In the year 1999  I trained with Peter Delves Associates in Ericksonian Hypnotherapy & NLP, and then continued my studies with the IAEBP.  The IAEBP is a non-profit making organization and as a member I have followed a course of training in Psychotherapy, Analysis, Hypnosis and The Thrive programme. I've recently gained a new qualification in BWRT (BrainWorking Recursive Therapy) which I'm incredibly excited about as it's proving to be remarkably quick and effective in completely resolving many emotional issues which would normally take weeks or even  months to remedy.

As a therapist, I incorporate Suggestion, Visualisation, NLP, BrainWorking Recursive Therapy, Positive Psychology, Analysis, Psychological well-being coaching and Mindfulness.

Every person who walks through my door is unique, and because we are all unique we all respond differently to therapy, therefore I use a more integrative approach and tailor sessions to each individual.
