"Freedom isn't a destination; it's a state of mind."

I'm a fully qualified, registered and insured Clinical Hypnotherapist (HPD, Dip.Hyp, NLP Prac). I also hold a BA (Hons) Degree in Philosophy and Politics and a Master’s Degree in International Political Development (MA).

I studied at the highly reputable Anglo European College of Therapeutic Hypnosis. I hold a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma and I also have a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy. My training included a 10 month diploma course from a college that is known for some of the most rigorous standards in hypnotherapy training in the UK. I also hold an Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner Diploma. My Hypnotherapy training focused on the value of evidence-based techniques within practice and this has remained an important component of the way I work. This means that certain techniques, such as regression are not used within my own practice due to ongoing commitment  to client welfare.

I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR). As a member of these governing bodies, I adhere to and am regulated by the Code of Ethics and Conduct stipulated by each of these organisations and which can be found on each of their websites.


"I wholeheartedly recommend Etain to anyone seeking a balance in their life/careers, parts of their world that they consider stressful...slot into place after a few hours in her presence."

Working With Me..

No two hypnotherapists are the same and no two hypnotherapists will approach a particular client issue in the same way. Although each hypnotherapist will utilise hypnosis in some way, the way in which therapy is then applied can differ enormously. Hypnotherapy in the UK is not regulated by law which means the quality of hypnotherapy on offer varies hugely. When you are choosing a hypnotherapist please make sure you look into the type of hypnotherapy they are providing.


Background and Influences...

Since my Honors Degree, I have maintained a steady interest in Philosophy and Psychology, and particularly in the role played by the mind in generating our experience of life. I am constantly studying and improving upon what I know and the way I practice. My approach to Hypnotherapy is heavily influenced by the contributions of Marsha Linehan and her outstanding work in the field of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Influences on my work also include Aaron T Beck and his impact on Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Further influences include the highly esteemed research of Joseph LeDoux around anxiety and the way this is produced in the brain and body. My particular interest lies in helping clients understand and improve their confidence and all the skills that support a growth in confidence. 

Etain was recently invited as a guest on Adam Eason's popular Hypnosis podcast. This was a special Room 101 edition of the show in which guests were asked to discuss with the panel what they would send into room 101 from the field of hypnosis and hypnotherapy.
