Online Confidence coaching with Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy

Hello, I'm Dr Rosalind (she/her). I'm an online confidence coach and help people who may feel 'stuck' with unhelpful habits and ways of thinking and want to change to improve their lives. With my medical background, it's important that I use evidence-based techniques. I offer clinically proven cognitive and behavioural techniques, complemented with evidence-based hypnosis.

I also enjoy working with people who need non-medical help with the changes associated with menopause.

About me

I am aware of the detrimental effect of overload at work, having worked in hospital medicine in the UK for over 25 years. I was an NHS consultant physician assessing and caring for patients admitted as emergencies, as well reviewing outpatients referred by GP's.

I am familiar with the stresses on students, having been an honorary tutor at Edge Hill University for several years and teaching/supervising medical students, trainee doctors and nurses throughout my career. I was also an examiner, question writer/editor and exam board member for the Royal College of Physicians (London).

Excepting current pandemic travel restrictions, I'm fortunate to spend part of the year in Spain (Fuengirola), home in the UK (Lyneham, Wiltshire) and France (Normandy). I therefore understand many immigration/'ex-pat' difficulties.

Relevant Qualifications and Regulatory Body membership:
Diploma in cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy (UK College of Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy)
Member of the British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis
General Hypnotherapy Register (registered practitioner)
General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (accredited practitioner)
GMC registration 3466216 (I have relinquished my licence to practise. This means, for example, I no longer prescribe medication and no longer give medical advice.)


I mostly help people who experience anxiety in its many forms

Such as:
insomnia
procrastination
exam nerves
public speaking
online dating anxiety
environmental concerns

Menopausal symptoms (hot flushes, insomnia, stress and anxiety at no longer feeling like yourself) can be reduced using cognitive, behavioural and hypnotherapy techniques. (references below)

For stopping bad habits therapy usually takes one 2-hour session with a follow-up session 2-3 weeks later to check how you are doing.
nail biting
trichotillomania (trich)

I can also help you if you are experiencing subclinical depression/low mood

I offer Behavioural Activation therapy for mild depression. However, please see your GP with more troublesome depression as I am not in a position to support people with suicidal ideation.


It is essential that we are able to work together as a team for you to achieve your desired therapeutic outcome.

If you want to find out more, please use the contact email form.
Our working alliance starts with a free, no-obligation video/VOIP discussion to gain an understanding of the issues you would like to address and to discuss suitability for the different interventions I offer.
My aim is to teach you evidence-based skills which you can use in other areas of your life; you become your own therapist and no longer need me!

Standard sessions
You need to be fully committed to change and prepared to devote time to practise the between session assigned tasks. You do the work to alter any unhelpful ingrained patterns of behaviour or thinking, and incorporate more helpful ways into your life.
If we decide to work together, you will be emailed administrative and health screening forms to complete and return. This makes most efficient use of the comprehensive assessment session. However, if you are very anxious, I can help you with your health screening questionnaires during the comprehensive assessment session.
After the initial session, you can choose to book further sessions singly or in a block of 4 (discounted).

For simple 'bad habits, such as nail biting, a single 2-hour session is usually sufficient for a motivated client.

Single Session Therapy
Offering some one-at-a-time sessions (also known as SST), means I can enable rapid access at the point of need (usually within 2 working days) with the focus on helping a client improve one area of concern.
SST is unlikely to produce a quantum/radical change of character overnight, (Dickens' Scrooge is a fictional character)!
However, we approach the session as if it could be the only one. There is no comprehensive assessment, no hypnosis, but we use standard cognitive and behavioural techniques to help you rationally learn how to improve one of your problems in the available time. You may find that changing how you manage one area, generalises into other areas of your life.
