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 in continuous professional development and have enhanced my therapeutic knowledge in:

  • Pain Management
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Parts Therapy Negotiations
  • Treating Phobias with Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH)
  • Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Communication Skills

I am in regular supervision and have professional civil liability insurance.
