Claire has been practising Clinical Hypnotherapy full time since 1999, so she has the experience and expertise to address a wide variety of issues clients can present with. Her specialist areas are in helping clients overcome Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, Fears and self limiting beliefs and behaviours. Her passion has been to find out what works in therapy, to create the change that clients are looking for, as quickly as possible.
Integrity: Claire is one of the few Registered and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists in this Province. Hypnotherapy, unfortunately, is not a regulated industry, so anyone can call themselves a Hypnotherapist after just a weekend course (and some do!). Adding “Clinical” to one’s title should mean your Hypnotherapist has a degree or at least some background in a social science, ideally Psychology. Some Hypnotherapist’s may use the term ‘’Clinical’’ without fully understanding or even knowing this.
Claire’s integrity coupled with her desire to get you the results you want are the main reasons why she has been so successful in her practice.
Experience and Expertise: Claire has a BA (Hons) Degree in Psychology from Staffordshire University in the UK, has qualifications in Counselling and a SACH Diploma (one year of training) in Clinical and Analytical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy. She has also achieved the Mastery Level in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). More recently she has found that Family Constellation Therapy has been a very important addition to her therapy process in helping clients reframe and let go of the past issues that can hold some people back.
Claire has been in private practice in Calgary, Canada since 2001 as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, prior to this she was in the UK. In addition to her hypnotherapy practice, Claire teaches and lectures other Hypnotherapists and has been an Examiner for UK Hypnotherapy courses. Claire has taught many Hypnotherapy Workshops for the City of Calgary, Alberta Health Services, Women’s Health Resources and runs her own workshops on a wide variety of the applications of Hypnosis in the Health and Wellness field.
Honest, realistic up front pricing (no hidden costs): There are no gimmicks or misleading marketing strategies with Claire, such as a free consultation or being told you only need just one session as a fix. Realistically no one works for free and if someone offers you this as part of their marketing, expect to be charged somewhere else for the cost of the time spent together, usually with higher priced sessions or sessions you don’t need.
