Around one in three people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. There are over 200 different types, all with differing treatments, all are long term conditions. Treatment has improved dramatically over the last decade, and a diagnosis now brings with it hope for treatment and recovery.
An initial diagnosis can turn your life upside down, almost overnight. You can go from looking and feeling healthy to what may feel like an endless round of decisions to be made.
Everyone affected feels overwhelmed, confused and scared. You may experience anxiety about treatment, the future and your loved ones with worry and fear becoming a part of daily life. Hypnotherapy can be a way of managing these thoughts and help find a path through the anguish to live life again.
Macmillan Cancer Support recognises hypnotherapy as beneficial in helping people cope with the fears and frustrations the illness, treatment and recovery can bring. There is evidence that hypnotherapy can help with all stages of the cancer journey from diagnosis, treatment and care. Hypnotherapy can be used with any other form of treatment and has no side effects.
My approach to hypnosis focuses on teaching you coping skills. I help you learn how relaxation techniques such as self hypnosis, mindfulness and breathing can improve your thoughts and feelings, the treatment process and any side-effects. I aim to empower you to make the choices you want about your treatment and recovery.

"Celia has really helped me to overcome a lot of anxiety issues after the loss of my husband three years ago to cancer. She has helped me to regain confidence in who I am as a person and as a mum to a teenager. I am learning to believe in myself and my abilities again. I would recommend Celia without hesitation. She takes the time to really understand the root of the problem and tailors the treatment to suit your needs. Thank
“I went to see Celia because I was having severe anxiety problems due to undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy for oesophageal cancer. I was struggling as I had to endure long waits for results of the treatment. I found Celia immensely helpful, understanding and supportive and helped me through this very difficult time. As well as giving me hypnosis she also helped me with coping strategies.
Following her treatment I now feel calmer and much more confident and able to cope.
She also went to a great deal of trouble to send me recordings our our sessions so that I could listen to them at home between visits which was a great help to me.I would have no hesitation in recommending Celia's services to anyone.”
