Wendy Still - Berkshire Hypnotherapist
Wendy Still HPD, DipCHyp, NLP Master Prac, DCH, MNCH
Hello, my name is Wendy and I’m a caring and supportive Cognitive Hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner. I'm passionate about hypnotherapy because I understand what it’s like to suffer with anxiety, and to be held back by fears and self-doubt; and I know how amazing life can be when you are free, without those things holding you back. Through my own immensely transformative experience of hypnotherapy I've been able to enjoy my life more and just be happier being me and I'd like others to have this freedom too.
When you come to see me, it’s not me fixing you; you’re not broken. I believe everyone, including you, already has everything they need to be able to enjoy life more and achieve more.
· If you want to learn simple yet effective tools that put you in control of your emotions, so that you won't feel helpless or a victim of your problem any longer
· If you’d like to understand why your issue effects you the way it does and use these techniques to change the way you’re behaving and feeling, leaving you able to be more resilient in the future
· If you want to be happier being you, then
Cognitive Hypnotherapy could be for you. Contact me to discuss how you can be free from whatever it is that is making your life unhappy or difficult now.
I have been helping clients since 2008 and over the years I’ve loved helping my clients overcome all manner of issues, including anxiety and panic attacks, a variety of fears, like fear of failure and all manner of phobias, such as fear of public speaking and flying. I’ve helped clients break unwanted habits, like smoking and overeating and I’ve supported clients with bereavement, stress and depression; resulting in all my clients building up their self-belief, confidence and self-esteem.
I appreciate that choosing to come to a hypnotherapist could be a little daunting. Therefore, I always recommend a free, no obligation chat before making any commitment, where I can answer any concerns you may have. It is of the utmost importance to the success of your therapy that you feel comfortable with the therapist you choose.
I offer a safe and relaxed, yet professional service at my therapy room in Frimley where I can help you overcome all manner of issues, usually surprisingly quickly. I’d love you to call me on 07900 891854 or email me, via the email button above to find out more about how I can help you.

Student (Anxiety and Stress)
Very soon into my time with Wendy I noticed a rapid change in my behaviour. By the end of my sessions I found I had a much better control of my emotions, was able to put things into perspective and gained confidence in myself as well. I would absolutely recommend Wendy to anybody struggling with stress, anxiety and depression.
I felt very at ease and was pleased at how effective it was and how quickly it worked.
Fear of Flying
I’d like to thank you again for the amazing work you have done to help me overcome this phobia – in just a few sessions I have transformed into a completely unrecognisable person compared to my last attempt to board a plane. I genuinely thought I would be someone who couldn’t be ‘cured’ but at the risk of sounding cliché, this has quite literally changed my life.
Student 22, (Anxiety)
My first appointment already helped me to relax, even before we began the deeper work. Though my sessions have finished, I am still receiving support by listening to audio recordings from our previous sessions to help me relax and cement all the work we had put in. Thanks to Wendy, I am steadily becoming the person I want to be and used to be before the anxiety took over.
Stress and Anxiety and now ongoing well being
I first consulted Wendy for hypnotherapy nearly one year ago with stress and anxiety problems. Initially I had weekly sessions and later monthly which I continue to have.
Wendy is professional and skilful and I cannot overstate the help she has and continues to give me. There has been an amazing transformation in my wellbeing during the last year. I now feel more relaxed and most importantly do not over worry about things as I have done for many years.
My only regret is that I waited so long to have Hypnotherapy, I should have done it years ago
Anxiety visiting certain places
Wendy spent time fully exploring my feelings and then used a number of techniques to help me tackle the root causes of my anxiety. She also taught me some excellent coping strategies.
Wendy’s calm approach put me instantly at ease and she explained everything fully so that I had a good understanding of the way my thoughts and emotions were interacting together, and how to control these. I would fully recommend Wendy to others.
Phobia & Work pressure
As someone very sceptical about hypnotherapy I was amazed by how at ease Wendy made me feel and how easily I could relax with her.
After several sessions I had gone from a person who could not be in the same room as a wasp to someone who could brush them away without screaming!
I have also had further hypnotherapy to aid relaxation and wellbeing during times of work pressures because it made me feel so good.
HOW COGNITIVE HYPNOTHERAPY WORKS.
The approach is based on discoveries from neuroscience and Evolutionary Psychology about how people think and how your brain creates your problems and your solutions. It combines various techniques and interventions from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Positive Psychology, Traditional Hypnotherapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Gestalt.
By understanding you are unique and your issues are completely unique to you and using this eclectic approach, I have the flexibility to tailor make each treatment to your specific issues and desired outcomes.
