Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
Listening, encouraging discussion, and collaboration form the fundamentals of my approach to therapy and coaching.
Using a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnotherapy, mindfulness, and coaching for a holistic process, we can work together to help you overcome your challenges and live the life you want, judgement-free.
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
What is cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy (CBH)?
CBH is cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) + hypnotherapy + mindfulness.
CBT focuses on bringing awareness and understanding of how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours interact and influence one another.
Hypnotherapy can then be used to better implement useful, healthier thoughts to replace the unhelpful ones through visualisation and rehearsal. This is usually achieved through psycho-education, and by teaching clients how to achieve a heightened state of concentration and suggestibility, usually through relaxation. Clients can further develop this skill through practice outside of sessions.
Mindfulness teaches clients how to better digest their thoughts and feelings. For example, learning to notice a thought, feeling, or sensation, acknowledge it, and let it go. This is particularly useful for clients who find themselves becoming overwhelmed or avoidant.
How does CBH work?
When experiencing unwanted sensations such as anxiety, stress, anger, phobias, and compulsive habits, there is usually a sequence of events happening that we may not be conscious of.
For example, the thought, “I’m awkward in social settings” can lead to feelings of fear and negative emotions (anxiety). As a result, you may behave in a way that leads to uncomfortable interactions, you may choose to leave early or avoid social events entirely.
Using this information we can break the cycle, implement coping techniques, or replace negative thoughts with positive ones. By identifying triggers and the typical sequence that follows, these can be reframed in a way that is helpful for you.
Think of CBH as you would think of working with a personal trainer but with a focus on your mind.
A personal trainer supports you and tailors a regime to your requirements and goals, but it’s you who sets the goals and does the heavy lifting. This means that the more you put in, the faster and better the results, and the same applies to CBH. Consistency and willingness are key!
“I'm north London born and based. I've also lived in Bangkok & Singapore for 5 years as an expat. ”
“I've recently integrated my coaching practice with CBH. I have a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, an MSc in Psychology, a BA in Sociology & Social Policy, PGCert in Business & Personal Coaching, and a Cert in Relationship Coaching.”
“I'm mixed Chinese/Jamaican, but grew up in North London (N8).”
“My original career interest was in psychotherapy, however, after experiencing psychotherapy, coaching, and CBH, I personally found all to be invaluable, but CBH and coaching preferable to me for outcome-focused, short-term therapy, with long-term results.”
“I have an adorable rescue pup who occassionally makes an appearance in sessions (not the one in the photo - hah).”
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF THERAPY IS FOR YOU?
Would you like to take control of your life?
We’re all capable of leading happier lives. But, we self-sabotage our own happiness, often without realising we are doing it.
When’s the last time you did something that *really* made you happy?
Our beliefs of what will bring us happiness (e.g. consuming, money, s*x, things, substances, partying) tend to be defined by societal influence, habits, and expectations. This can cause us to overlook and neglect the things that truly make us happy. Repeating the same behaviours, hoping for different results? We know how this goes…
I’M STUCK, SEND HELP.
Think of therapy as a personal investment, ‘upgrading’ yourself.
Change is hard, so I focus on working with you to figure out what drives you and how you can make improvements in a way that is manageable, and realistic to your life. Sounds pretty simple? It is. The hard part is seeing ourselves objectively, keeping up momentum, holding ourselves accountable, and looking beyond the surface of our behaviours. And that’s where I come in.
What can you expect to gain from CBH?
CBH will equip you with a greater level of self-awareness, control over your life, and the tools you require to sustain this independently. Working together to empower you to realise how to lead and enjoy the life you want.
How many sessions do I need?
During your first session (assessment) we will discuss this. The amount of sessions needed varies from person to person and depends on what you would like to achieve. 6 sessions are recommended as a minimum for results, 8-12 for results and lasting change. However, clients have achieved their goals in as little as 4 sessions.
For efficacy, weekly sessions are advised to start. This can be adjusted to fortnightly to allow for time to utilise the assignments. Once your goal(s) are achieved, we can work together to devise a maintenance plan.
Why are we so good at helping others, but ineffective when it comes to ourselves?
It’s just easier. So, let me help you help yourself.

Tiffany truly helped change my mindset and improve my life within such a short amount of time.
Tiffany’s genuine, empathetic and kind nature allowed me to immediately feel at ease. She focused on solutions and adapting new methods into my daily life. There wasn’t anything that felt too out of reach or overwhelming and I was able to leave every session with more confidence.
I previously had CBH for sleep issues and felt I was quite self aware when walking into my first session. Although, in over ten years of work I had not reached the level of progress that I have had with Tiffany in just 5 weeks.
I was dissatisfied at work. Tiffany taught me to take stock of my life, assess what's important to me and identify the things that truly make me happy. She questioned my self-limiting beliefs and helped break them down. She triggered a paradigm shift in my approach to my personal and professional life. It’s no coincidence that shortly after finishing my sessions I was appointed Sales Director at work. I'd wholeheartedly recommend Tiffany to anyone who wants some direction in their life.

People would describe me as calm and helpful but inside I was starting to feel different, I felt lost as a busy mum and my self confidence was depleted. I reached out to Tiffany and my first session felt like a weight had been lifted. I could finally be honest with myself and after 5 sessions I feel like a much improved version of myself. I worked hard outside of the sessions and it’s paid off. Family and work life all seem great now but most importantly I feel I am being true to myself. Thank you so so much Tiffany, I couldn’t have made these changes without you ❤️ 100% best decision I have made for a long time. E. Healthcare
Tiffany was really down to earth and really tuned in well to my specific needs with the coaching. I felt that I made improvements in between each of my visits, which was a joy to report back on to Tiffany and work on improving even more for the next meeting. Tiffany really helped me focus on my dreams, and I am living some of them now! Thank you. Tasha Record Label Owner & DJ

I assumed coaching was similar to therapy and you'd be ‘’told’’ what you should do, but I was so wrong. Tiffany showed me how to break down my goals and find achievable approaches to fulfill them. Tiffany is the type of person you can open up to in a professional manner but almost as a friend. I never felt judged, it was always an open forum where I could be honest with myself and Tiffany. She helped me find the next steps towards happiness and my life goals - this is what I valued the most. Mel Analyst
