About me

Hello, my name is Judith Stafford and I'm a Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner.

How would like to achieve your full potential so that you can become the person you want and deserve to be?

Most of us have things we would like to change about ourselves and or that we would like to do differently. If you want to make a change to your life, with the right help problems can be solved and changes achieved.

I have worked in different careers including 15 years in the IT sector. Several year ago, after many failed attempts, I successfully stopping smoking with hypnosis. I was so impressed that I and decided to train as a clinical hypnotherapist.

I have a wealth of life experiences and have gone through many of the same difficulties my clients are experiencing. Now I use my skills to help people who are suffering from stress and anxiety, low confidence and self-esteem, menopause symptoms, panic attacks and weight loss and of course, stopping smoking.

So, whether you have spent years trying to make changes to your life or you have a recent problem hypnotherapy can help you to finally overcome these issues.

I use several techniques during treatment, as well as hypnotherapy, depending on the person and the problem.

  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
  • NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)
  • Mindfulness
  • EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)

I treat a diverse number of problems, but my specialist areas are:

  • Menopause Relief
    Help easing symptoms and making the menopause a time of growth and transition rather than fear and misery
  • Stress, Anxiety and Panic Attacks
    General Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Performance and Social Anxiety
  • Confidence Courses
    Confidence courses to help improve your overall confidence and self-esteem or in a specific area such as public speaking or driving

  • Stopping Smoking
    Two sessions working with you to help quit smoking for good

As well as being a useful tool for helping a number of issues, hypnosis can be a very enjoyable, relaxing experience.

I am based in Clevedon and practice in the Somerset area. I also offer home visits.

Further information


"After the death of my father in April I found myself in a position of needing some help although I didn't want to take medication.

Judith made me feel relaxed and at ease. As I didn't really know what to expect from the first session it was lovely to just be able to talk to someone outside of my situation.

I can't recommend Judith's services enough, I will never get over losing my Dad but Judith has given me some great techniques to help me deal with my anxiety and keep perspective. I do feel that the hypnotherapy she provided worked for me and I would absolutely consider her services again in the future."
