Alison Alexander - Devon Hypnotherapist
Alison Alexander HPD DSFH
I am a qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapist with experience of helping those with issues such as low mood, anger, fears and phobias, stress, panic attacks, confidence issues, relaxation, motivation issues, coping problems and much more.
I have many years experience of working with people, mainly in the health sector and am passionate about helping individuals to overcome their issues and move forward to a happier future. It was during my Nursing career that I first encountered the positive and very therapeutic qualities of Hypnotherapy. This inspired me to undertake hypnotherapy training for myself at the Observatory Practice in Plymouth, part of the renowned Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training.
The type of hypnotherapy that I practice is Solution Focused which involves working with you to help you move away from problems and to support you to take steps towards your personal well being. It is a very relaxing and positive process and has been shown to help many disorders and conditions. All sessions are tailored around your individual needs and are enjoyable as well as therapeutic.
I practice locally in Exminster, Central Exeter and Whimple and am able to work flexibly in all locations to best suit your needs. I offer a free Initial consultation which is a time for you to meet me and for us to discuss how Hypnotherapy can help you.

* If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.
Each session is £60 and lasts approximately 50- 60 mins. These sessions are a combination of psychotherapy and hypnotherapy, using modern Solution focused techniques.
The Initial Consultation is FREE and is a chance for us to meet and discuss the changes that you want to make, so that you can decide if this is the right therapy for you. I will explain the way the brain creates the conditions we experience, and this in itself is a powerful catalyst for change. I will let you know how many sessions we can expect to be working together – specific phobias and fears usually take 3 sessions following the initial consultation, whereas general therapy requires 8-12 sessions, although this will vary from person to person. No trance work is included in this consultation, which lasts for 40-50 minutes.
