Holly is a graduate of CPHT Surrey (formerly CPHT Guildford), having qualified in 2015. She runs a busy Hypnotherapy practice in Billingshurst, West Sussex and online.
Holly’s interest in psychology, and coincidentally hypnotherapy, started after she experienced several panic attacks following an extremely stressful period in her life. She made it her focus to establish why she was experiencing them, and more importantly, how she could prevent them from ever happening again. Since finding the CPHT course she has never looked back. It answered all her questions and gave her the tools to ensure that she has not had a panic attack since.
Following graduating with a Civil Engineering degree from City University London, her varied career has included running sailing holidays in Greece, recruitment management for an international property company gaining her CIPD, and latterly, recruitment management for the NHS. She then took a career break to have a family and has two amazing (well she would say that!) daughters and two needy golden retrievers.
“The course appealed to me because it had a clear basis in neuroscience. I was also attracted by the principles of the Solution Focused approach. At a time when I did not have the answers, the course offered the “light bulb” moment when it all fell into place. What started as a journey of “Self Help” has now become my passion and my career.
The thought of being able to help people without needing to focus on an unhappy past was immensely appealing. I was delighted to be accepted onto the first Guildford School intake and can honestly say that the HPD course is the best thing I have ever done in my life.”
Since then Holly has built up a busy Hypnotherapy practice in West Sussex. She has helped hundreds of clients (with a specialist interest in helping children and teens and those suffering with eating disorders) over the years, accumulating many thousands of hours of clinical practice.
She has kept her skills up to date by regularly attending CPD courses run by CPHT and other professional bodies and is currently working towards the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma and the Excellence in Practitioner Skills for eating disorders (with a view to gaining the Master Practitioner certification in 2023)
She is a Supervisor and runs group Supervision sessions in Surrey and West Sussex as well as offering 1-2-1 support both in person and online.
