Jane Sidwick
Clinical Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy.

View Hypnotherapy is a private practice situated in the village of Stevington near Bedford and Milton Keynes.
Research has shown Hypnosis integrated with up to date psychotherapies such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and talking therapies is a fast effective and gentle way to overcome issues.

I offer face to face and online therapy which some clients find more convenient due to travel or health issues.

Background & Qualifications

For the past ten years I have worked in voluntary sectors helping homeless young people and those struggling with mental health issues. My private practice is focussed more to the unresolved challenges of adults and to the difficulties which affect older people.

I trained with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis (LCCH) and awarded a post graduate certificate by The University of West London.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

My approach is one of compassionate therapy where we can work together to identify past unhelpful beliefs and unconscious biases which may interfere with the challenges of every day life.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy from an integrative approach tailored to your needs. I provide a safe, confidential place to overcome difficult emotional issues.

I specialise in treating depression and anxiety disorders which underpin many stress related conditions including any past or present trauma which you may not have fully understood or recovered from. Alternatively you may even want the sessions for counselling to unravel and off-load confusing day to day conflicts or irritations where you feel stuck and frustrated with life. I will offer you respect and sensitivity to your issue where confidentiality is upmost.

I am a full member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I follow the ethics laid down by the BSCH/BACP and have full professional indemnity insurance, along with an enhanced DBS certificate allowing me to work with children and vulnerable adults. I meet all regulations as required from my professional bodies relating to Continued professional development.
