About me

Hilary_Austin_webPROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

I worked for many years in a Human Resources and Training capacity, during which time I gained professional qualifications in HR. However, in 2009 I re-trained to become a hypnotherapist and counsellor. I now help people from all walks of life to overcome personal, emotional and psychological issues, assisting them to move forward towards a happier, healthier, more fulfilled life.

TRAINING, QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE

I hold a Diploma in Hypnotherapy & Counselling Skills (Dip Hyp CS) and an Integrated Advanced Professional Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy (Ad.Dip CP), both of which are accredited by The Royal College of Nursing.

I am a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and work within the Code of Ethics and professional standards of these bodies.  I am in regular supervision and hold professional civil liability insurance.
