About Dawn Reynolds-Smith

EMDR and Adult and Child Hypnotherapy

So you want to know about Dawn (me) .  I am not used to talking about me, but here goes.  I came to become a Hypnotherapist after working in the NHS for 20 years Even though I loved my job,  I became very stressed.  Consequently I sought treatment; and after a while I discovered Hypnotherapy and Mindfulness.  Because I found Hypnotherapy so amazing and life changing, I decided to look into this further.  Several weeks later I left my job and trained to become a Clinical Hypnotherapist.  I have never looked back.   Some years after I added EMDR, Psychotherapy and  Mindfulness to my skills.  This was because so many of my clients had  PTSD and I wanted to help them.

I am proudly neurodivergent and have ADHD and OCD.  This, I believe helps me work with my neurodivergent clients, of which there are many.

I now work with children and adults all over the world, including the United States and Europe.  Due to my years in the NHS I have an understanding of medical conditions.  Some hypnotherapists may have worked in unrelated areas.  This means they may not pick up on important symptoms.  I believe this helps me give client’s the best treatment.  All hypnotherapy carried out is recorded as a bespoke session.   Clients can listen in between sessions.  Consequently reducing the number of sessions needed.   This method of hypnotherapy is fully researched.
