About Me
Hi. I am Ana. I’m a fully qualified female Solution Focused Hypnotherapist based in Halifax, West Yorkshire. I work both face-to-face and online so wherever you are, I can help.

Why am I a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist?

The workings of the brain and its ability to adapt and change have always fascinated me: so much so that I took the plunge and returned to study a Psychology degree some 30 years after I last wrote an essay!

I devote my time now to helping my clients to achieve their therapy goals. I love empowering them with the knowledge, understanding and confidence to flourish. Seeing my clients thrive is my greatest motivation and I regard it as a privilege when clients are willing to entrust their mental well-being to me.

I see the therapeutic journey as an alliance – a partnership – and I ensure that our work takes place in a compassionate, professional, confidential and non-judgemental environment.

My career actually started in a very different direction: working my way up to become a branch manager for a leading building society in London and then heading north with my partner to take time out to raise our two children.

When they grew up and left home to start their own journeys, I began to feel redundant: lost and unsure of who Ana was. Feeling more and more anxious I became overwhelmed by negative thoughts which told me I was no longer useful. I felt a constant dread weighing me down and everyday life was becoming increasingly hard for me to cope with.

Over the next few years, I tried various talking therapies and by chance came across Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. The experience transformed the way I felt about myself, helped me to regain confidence and to make new discoveries about who I am and what I’m capable of.

The sphere of what was possible to me expanded exponentially. For example, it led me to volunteer for several years as a support line call handler for a leading charity helping people who were abused in childhood and also travelling to Cancun, Mexico as a volunteer, splitting my time between helping disadvantaged children in a local school and working in a community-based Vets practice.

I now hold the Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD) and the Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DFSH) having studied at the prestigious Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training Centre in Leeds. I am a registered member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I am enhanced DBS checked and fully insured.

As a professional Hypnotherapist, I am committed to continuing my development and have recently completed courses in providing group hypnotherapy, working with addictions, self-harm, PTSD, and supporting clients with menopausal issues.

I have recently completed a Postgraduate Certificate (with Distinction) in Criminal justice and Victimology at the University of Portsmouth.
