My name is Hilary Charman and I live in Dorchester, Dorset. I have four children, three grown up and an 8 year old. I began my Hypnotherapy training in 2016 and it completely transformed my life. By making my own self hypnosis recordings and listening to them daily I managed to come off medication I’d been on for years, lose four and a half stone and free myself from long term addiction. The changes in my psyche happened very quickly but my physical recovery took a lot longer. I had to take a year off my Hypnotherapy course because of ‘brain fog,’ but throughout that time I continued to make recordings for myself and friends. I got back to my studies in January 2018 and became qualified later that year. During that time I gained confidence and began to feel able to do things I would never have thought possible before. And even more importantly it gave me the tools to help other people who might be ‘stuck’ in a situation or behaviour and not know how to move on. Because of my life experiences I have a deep understanding of many of the issues that my clients come to me with. I have dealt with my own self-limiting beliefs and past traumas with the help of other Professional Hypnotherapists as I am careful not to bring any of my ‘stuff’ into the session. I hold a Diploma in Professional Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis and I am an accredited, licensed practitioner and member of the professional body APA (Andrew Parr Association). As an accredited member I agree to adhere to a strict code of conduct and ethics.
