Be comfortable in your own skin

Success stories

By using both hypnotherapy and psychotherapy methods, which complement each other, we can transform your mindset to become more confident, happier and more successful.

I now offer online therapy, via Zoom. This is just as effective as face to face therapy but enables you to stay safe in the comfort of your own home.

"My time with Antonia has been a journey of self-discovery.  Although I was a little nervous at first, I began to really look forward to my weekly visits.  Antonia was always calm and welcoming and I felt completely safe in her hands.​ I went in the hope that I could relieve myself of my daily stresses but got so much more. I was getting to know myself and recognizing patterns in my life that were holding me back for many years."

About me

Over many years I have practised yoga and studied health, fitness and nutrition.  These disciplines have taught me that in order to adopt a truly holistic approach to the body, I needed to study the mind as well.

Graduating as an Analytical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist has allowed me the opportunity to put a genuine "whole person-focused" philosophy into practice.

Analytical Hypnotherapy can help you let go of your past so you can fulfil your true potential and learn how to be comfortable in your own skin, free of those limitations that once defined you.

Frequently asked questions

Who is hypnotherapy for?


It's for anyone! Hynotherapy is particularly useful for changing behaviours, breaking habits or even changing perceptions. It's a proactive way to move forward in your life and take steps towards being the best version of yourself.




What can I expect from a session?


Sessions take place over Zoom, so you benefit from a greater state of relaxation in the comfort of your own home. During the session it's recommended you have a comfortable spot to rest your head while remaining seated or lying down - this may be your favourite chair or sofa! We start with a similar format to talking therapy, giving me a chance to get to know you and find out more about what you'd like to focus on in your sessions. During the hypnotherapy, I paint a picture that helps you to relax and enter a deeper state of relaxation. In that state we will visit episodes from your past, helping you to uncover emotions and feelings, and view your story through a new lens.




How many sessions do I need?


Everyone is different so this really does depend on the individual. I recommend a minimum of six sessions, but there is a benefit to continue until you have reached your goals.




Does hypnotherapy work in the same way as therapy?


They are similar, but hypnotherapy goes much deeper and deals directly with the subconscious mind, which often results in quicker positive changes. Many people find that hypnotherapy provides answers from their subconscious mind that they otherwise could not access, while also allowing individuals to deal with and process underlying emotions that arise. If you're not sure what is best for you, please do book a discovery call to discuss your options.




Will I be out of my own control?


Not at all! You remain in control throughout all sessions and can pause or stop your session at any time. Think of hypnotherapy as a deep meditative state, you remain in control but benefit from greater access to your subconscious. If you are unsure if it is for you, I offer taster sessions where you can get a feel for the practice.




How much does a hypnotherapy session cost?


Initial consultations (90 mins): £100.00 Subsequent sessions (60 mins): £70.00




What can we work on?


I can help clients with the following: Anxiety and Panic Relationship Difficulties Weight Management Smoking Cessation Stress Management Childhood Neglect and Abuse Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders Dependencies and Addictions Irrational Fears and Phobias Bereavement and many others.....




What is hypnobirthing?


Hypnobirthing is a process designed for pregnant women, and their birth partners, to overcome any fears or anxieties they may have about giving birth. This process can help women have a quicker, gentler and less tiring labour and birth with less need for intervention.
