Online Confidence coaching with Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
Hello, I'm Dr Rosalind (she/her), Dip CBH, BSc, MB BS, FRCP, MD.
I mainly help people who feel 'stuck' or want to reduce stress and anxiety in their life and grow in confidence. With my extensive NHS medical experience, it's important that I use evidence-based hypnotherapy techniques. As an online hypnotherapist, I offer clinically proven cognitive and behavioural techniques for anxiety and low mood. Although you may find some sessions challenging, I will work with you in incremental steps to help you build confidence in your growing skills whilst learning relaxation techniques.
We are taught from an early age that we need lifelong exercise to maintain physical health. Unfortunately, many of us are not taught helpful cognitive and behavioural skills needed to maintain our mental health; I can teach you.
My medical and university teaching background
I am aware of the detrimental effect of workplace stress and overload, 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, explaining difficult issues to families as well as reviewing outpatients referred by GP's.
I am familiar with the stresses on students and teaching staff, having been an honorary PGCE tutor at Edge Hill University for several years and teaching/supervising medical students, trainee doctors and nurses throughout my career. I was also a postgraduate examiner for the Royal College of Physicians (London). I can help students increase their confidence (assuming they have studied!)

Online psychotherapy services: I mostly help people age 16+ who experience stress/anxiety in its many forms +/- low mood
I can help you increase your confidence with therapies for:
insomnia and sleep issues
Covid19-related anxiety and fear of needles
worrying too much
Menopausal symptoms: hot flushes, insomnia, stress and no longer feeling like yourself

Although we work together as a team, you need to be fully committed to do the home assignments necessary to help you change your unhelpful ingrained patterns of thinking and behaviour. My aim is to teach you evidence-based skills which you can use in other areas of your life; you will grow in confidence, become your own therapist and no longer need me!
