Vanessa Bowman Reeves Hypnotherapist

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website!

I'm pleased to be able to introduce myself and give you a little information about my background and experience.

Having worked for 20 years in various roles within the NHS and local authority, I decided to pursue a long-standing interest and train as a clinical hypnotherapist. In September 2008 I established my practice, Choice Hypnotherapy, based in Stockton-on-Tees.

My approach to therapy centres on helping people to live life in ways they choose for themselves, through offering support, encouragement and guidance. I have been delighted to discover over the years how powerfully hypnotherapy can help people, and love my work, especially being able to help clients to make real, positive changes happen, as quickly and comfortably as possible.

My qualifications and experience allow me to offer clinical hypnotherapy for a wide range of issues. Many of these are described on other pages within this site, but if you can't find what you're looking for, then please call me and I'll be pleased to advise you on whether I may be able to help.

When welcoming and working with clients, my approach is professional, friendly and relaxed. I limit the number of clients I work with, to ensure that I have the time and energy to prepare and deliver high-quality therapy that is tailor-made for each individual person.

I am happy to answer telephone enquiries and offer free initial consultations, which offer an opportunity for us to talk about your situation and how hypnotherapy might help, so you can decide for yourself how you wish to proceed.

Client testimonial:

"At the initial consultation I felt that you listened and took time to understand my situation, asking appropriate questions and clarifying my desired outcomes from the hypnotherapy. You were incredibly clear about how it could help and what the process entailed, which left me feeling confident about starting the treatment. I also greatly appreciated your professionalism - from small things like wearing your badge (oddly reassuring when entering a stranger's home for the first time), to listening without judgement and remembering the smallest of details about my story.
The sessions themselves were transformational … I felt energised and renewed and more myself than I have done in years …Your description and delivery of the treatment was exactly as you had outlined and has had the desired outcome for me. Thank you (again!)"
