About me, Jane Stewart
Who I am and why I do this...
I am a qualified hypnotherapist practitioner established in the Highlands, and at present I work entirely online via Zoom, though, exciting news!
Coming soon, due the relaxation of Covid rules,
I'll be offering in-person appointments in Aviemore.
Expected date for this is early November 2021
I came to hypnotherapy in 2012 after using self-hypnosis successfully for pain management after I sustained a back injury. It was taught to me as part of a holistic approach at the local NHS chronic pain clinic and I quickly discovered that everything you need is already within you; it's simply a matter of learning how to access what you need and using the techniques when you have to deal with challenges.
My purpose now is simple. I am here to help you discover ways to make changes that benefit you and we can do this together by using the most appropriate techniques to let you discover and apply more helpful beliefs, habits and behaviours to support your efforts. Most of my new clients now come to me as referrals
I'm committed to promoting positive change for everyone and feel proud to have helped clients achieve lasting success in a variety of situations, including weight management, smoking cessation, sports performance, test success, anxiety relief, managing fears and phobias and also dealing with unwanted habits and behaviours. An additional benefit is that you can experience improved self-esteem and confidence as a result. Most of my new clients now come to me as referrals.
When I work with you I use the most appropriate therapy or technique(s) to help you open up new paths to success.
My therapy skills are backed up by a career in business training and facilitation and also experience of sport participation and coaching.
I am registered as practitioner with both the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and the National Register of Advanced Hypnotherapists (NRAH).
I am also a Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) Registered Hypnotherapist. The CHNC is the UK voluntary regulator for complementary therapists, set up with government support to protect the public. They provide a UK register of practitioners who have met national standards.
I'm committed to continuing professional development (CPD) and for 2021 am studying for a diploma with 2 of the UK's foremost hypnotists, Anthony and Freddy Jacquin, to consolidate my knowledge and skills. The course comprises 100 hours of study and includes a large proportion of practical work to hone effective techniques.
