Pauline Hetherington

Clinical Hypnotherapist, Dip. H.
& BWRT® Practitioner

I am a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and BWRT® Practitioner - fully qualified in hypnosis, hypnoanalysis, BWRT® and psychotherapy.  I studied with the Milton Keynes School of Clinical Hypnosis and the BWRT Institute.  I am a member of the Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (APHP), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and a Practitioner for the Hypnotherapy in Schools Programme (HISP).


I run sessions for private clients both online and from my home in Emerson Valley, Milton Keynes.  I also attend schools and organisations to help support their well-being provision and enhance performance.

Hypnotherapy is proving to be an ever more accepted and popular choice for dealing with issues and has the benefit of being carried out in a gentle and positive way. While there are still plenty of myths about hypnotherapy, please be assured that you will remain in full control of your mind during a session; you will not blurt out your deepest darkest secrets and will almost definitely enjoy the relaxing experience!


I provide a free consultation to clients to explain how my sessions run and also use this time to discuss and determine the desired results of our work together.

I practice a confidential and ethical service so please get in touch for more information and to find out how hypnotherapy can help you.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is purely a state of relaxation and something that you experience naturally up to 20 times a day.  It is that moment just before you drop off to sleep; when you're simply day-dreaming or when you are driving to a familiar place and 'zone out' momentarily - you are aware of the external noises but they are not 'present' enough to disturb you.

There are two parts of our mind - the conscious and the subconscious.  The subconscious mind keeps us alive and safe from harm - it makes sure we're breathing, blinking and everything else our body does automatically without consciously asking it to do so.  In fact between 90-95% of our decisions, actions, emotions and behaviours occur in the subconscious mind which demonstrates just how powerful it is.

Often when someone is struggling with a problem, consciously they know what they need to do in order to overcome the issue, but something is stopping them from achieving the desired change.  This is usually due to their subconscious mind holding them back (working on auto-pilot with learned behaviours that have been formed throughout their life).


Hypnotherapy can assist because, unlike all other therapies, it works directly with the subconscious mind and so is able to get to the root cause of the problem and deliver results which are fast and effective.

For those people who haven't experienced hypnosis before, clients have often described that they felt a tingling sensation in their limbs, or that their bodies felt heavy and very relaxed.  Sometimes with a sense of time distortion too, commenting that the session passed by very quickly.


In summary, hypnosis is an extremely positive experience and people often remark how relaxed and invigorated they feel at the end of a session.
