About Me


‘It was the best thing I ever did, coming to see you. It changed my life!’*
Enid Stevens has lost count of the number of times people have said similar things to her over the years.......

If you'd like to overcome a long standing problem and you are interested in using Hypnotherapy as a tool for healing you've come to the right place.

It is important that you feel you can trust and have confidence in your hypnotherapist. I am very aware that as a client you are in a vulnerable position and you might feel a bit nervous about disclosing personal information to someone you don't know well. That is why you should only trust a therapist that can provide you proof of qualifications, training, professional registration as well as long standing experience in the field. For details of my qualifications and professional associations please see below.

As well as having practiced for over twenty five years as a therapist I also believe in continuing professional development, which means that I am committed to always being aware of new techniques and developments in the field.

As a holistic therapist I believe in addressing the issues that lie underneath your symptoms and not just offering a temporary cure. My main focus, however, is on putting you back in control of your life. My approach is mainly about focusing on solutions to current problems, rather than dwelling too long on past events that cannot be changed. I take a 'down to earth', practical approach, which most people appreciate, since they want to address their problems as concisely and as quickly as possible While other therapists might use sensationalist techniques to draw you in and keep you dependent, I do not promise you a miracle cure that fits all, but I offer to teach you tools for self empowerment.

Enid’s training and experience includes a wide rang of therapeutic skills. Different people respond to different approaches and an important part of her work is developing a programme of therapy suited to each individual.

  • Enid’s qualifications include Fellow of the Institute of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy, and a Member of the Corporation of Advanced Hypnotherapy. She is also a Licentiate of the Association of Stress Management and on the Register of Approved Gastrointestinal Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists.

  • She has lectured at the University of Reading, and been a tutor with the Berkshire College of nursing and midwifery specialising in psychological topics.

At the Initial Consultation your specific needs and goals can be discussed and there is an opportunity to learn about the many possible ways of using the various approaches. A decision can then be made as to what might be most appropriate and helpful for you. The therapy is very much a partnership in this respect – helping people to help themselves.
