Hi, my name is Deborah Hulse, but I prefer to be called Debbie
I first became very interested in hypnotherapy around 25 years ago, as I was a heavy smoker (20-30 daily) and had tried everything; unsuccessfully, to kick the habit. All those years ago, hypnotherapy was hardly heard of, but I was always intrigued by the concept and so decided to try it as a last resort. I was so pleased to find myself leaving the hypnotherapy session feeling like a true non-smoker. Consequently, with a little determination from that day onwards, I never touched a cigarette again.
As I have always immersed myself in topics that interest me, I proceeded to enjoy studying a wide range of academic and therapeutic subjects over the years. Combined with my voluntary work for Family Focus (working with children and families who experienced practical and emotional difficulties), I feel I have gained not only the experiences but supportive, communicative skills too.
Clinical hypnotherapy has helped me and countless others to make really significant life changes that have had tremendous, positive impacts. As we all know too well; life isn't always easy and anything that helps us de-stress or alter negative states/thoughts can only enhance our lives.
Due to the continual evidence that proves the benefits of hypnotherapy, I decided to study and successfully qualify as a clinical hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner.
This is now not only my immense, personal interest, but my opportunity to enable others to be able to access this safe and natural therapy, so that they can progress and move on with their lives.
You can be fully confident that I have an up-to-date, professional Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and a Diploma in NLP. (Endorsed by The Professional Guild of NLP).
My Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy is validated by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council. This council assesses the training of all its members, in order to ensure professional standards and regulations are met at all times.
I am also listed on the General Hypnotherapy Register; which is currently the largest, professional, registering organisation for practising, clinical hypnotherapists in the UK. This is where you can check whether a hypnotherapist is registered and is appropriately qualified; having undertaken all the necessary training to understand the theory and practice of hypnotherapy.
