Step Away From. Step Towards. Step Up.

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 esteemed Anglo European College of Therapeutic Hypnosis in Bournemouth. I have a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma and in addition to this I have a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, this was a 10 month diploma course from a college that is known for some of the most rigorous standards in the UK. I also hold an 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..

We have the capacity to experience our lives in a totally different way to what has gone before and what we have known until this point. In some ways, this can be viewed as a process of de-hypnosis in that we create the means to step away from the unwanted patterns, thoughts, feelings and behaviour that may have been holding you back, or creating pain in your life, until this point

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 early studies, I have maintained a keen 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. Influences on my approach to Hypnotherapy include Albert Ellis, Aaron T Beck, the work of Michael Yapko and particularly his work on the use of hypnosis to treat depression.  My work is also influenced by the highly esteemed research of Joseph LeDoux around anxiety and the way this is produced in the brain and body. Further influences include Human Givens, Clean Language, Byron Katie and also the Three Principles.

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.
