Welcome to Artemis Hypnotherapy

Welcome to the Artemis Hypnotherapy website, specialising in analytical hypnotherapy and much more. I hope you find it helpful.

I am a fully qualified hypnotherapist, based in Whitstable, Kent. I hold clinics in a number of locations in Kent and London. I use Analytical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy to explore the root causes of my client’s psychological and emotional distress or trauma. I focus on investigating and therapeutically dealing with the underlying cause of the client’s psychological upset. This releases them to be free from emotional and psychological issues.

My Background

Before training as a therapist, I worked as a Criminologist; both as a practitioner and an academic. I have worked as a consultant in prisons with offenders and as a Senior Lecturer in Criminology and Sociology. I have also worked with young offenders, their families and victims of crime as a mediator in Restorative Justice Programmes in the North East and Kent.

My background as a Criminologist has given me a scientific training and knowledge which offers me a unique insight into a wide range of distressing psychological conditions and symptoms that clients may be experiencing.

Artemis Hypnotherapy is the culmination of my mission to draw on my background and my experiences to bring release, rebalance and resolve to my clients.
