Amanda Hope - Clackmannanshire Hypnotherapist
Amanda Hope Clinical Hypnotherapist, BA, DHyp, PDCHyp, MBSCH, A Life in Balance
I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist offering relaxing, confidential hypnotherapy sessions for a wide range of symptoms in a comfortable city centre location. Hypnotherapy is a safe, effective way to make life-changing adjustments to thoughts, behaviours and emotions. It can also help you to access and enhance your own inner strengths and resources.
Over the years I have worked within the NHS at Glasgow Health Centres and in hospital environments. With over thirteen years experience in private practice, I have been based in a variety of Clinics as well as at the BBC. I have advanced training in cancer support and I am presently the therapist for a Scottish cancer charity. I also have specialist fertility training (see more info below and on my website) and due to previous roles working with charities like Childline and Barnardos, I use a gentle form of hypnotherapy with children and young people too.
My advanced training means that I can incorporate other therapeutic methods into sessions where appropriate.
We often limit ourselves through our thinking, so why not free yourself and release your true potential through hypnosis today? Bring your life back into balance.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
I have many years experience working with those affected by cancer through Gartnavel Hospital, Melanoma Action and Support Scotland (MASScot) and Cancer Support Scotland, as well as clients who come to see me privately. Clients are usually experiencing or recovering from illness or treatment. Hypnotherapy is a great emotional support, building strengths and emotions, as well as potentially alleviating side effects of treatment or symptoms of illness. Stress relating to a variety of issues, such as hospital appointments, waiting on results, speaking to family members or work colleagues, attending scans, blood tests and so on, can also be effectively reduced by hypnotherapy. I also work with family members who are caring for those with cancer as well as those who are bereaved.
I use the Fertile Body Method of hypnotherapy to support fertility. The goal is to create the optimum environment for conception. Practical and emotional support is offered through hypnotherapy sessions, to create a fertile body (male and female), I also offer therapeutic support through IVF and ICSI treatments as well as infertility.
