About Me

Welcome to Abbey Hypnotherapy NLP and Reiki, based here in Sheffield, S8 close to Chesterfield. Weight and Stress Management are my specialisms, as well as problems related to anxiety, phobias and confidence but I am trained to cover most issues. 

My name is Rebecca Dunn and I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner and Reiki/Seichem practitioner.  NLP stands for Neuro-linguistic-programming and teaches methods for reprogramming the mind. I incorporate NLP into my hypnosis session and am client centred in my approach.

I came to hypnotherapy about 10 years ago, first as a client suffering from anxiety, stress and chronic bladder pain, which caused me to feel very depressed at times.  I used hypnotherapy to help me get through a couple of daunting events and to help me radically change my diet in order to get well. I also became interested in how it worked as a process of personal development.  I began to research hypnotherapy and other psychotherapies in order to gain a basic awareness of how the mind works and gradually became more and more interested in hypnotherapy as a way of tackling my health issues at a much deeper level.

Hypnotherapy and NLP  have helped me to surpass my limiting beliefs, build my confidence and self -esteem which in turn motivated me to make huge changes in my life.  I finally gained control over my illness through eating a very strict food diet and used hypnotherapy to give me the discipline required to stick to the regime and help me to relax and take a more positive perspective towards the challenges I was facing. I am fully recovered now although I still need to avoid certain foods and I still use self hypnosis to keep me calm and positive in certain situations.  I am particularly interested in treating people who have weight, anxiety or stress management problems. Having a keen interest in Naturopathic medicine and a basic knowledge of herbal remedies, I feel I have a wealth of information to impart to people who are struggling with these issues.

Having read more about Hypnotherapy and experiencing it for myself, I knew that I was ready for a change in my career to something that was more meaningful to me. Although I have enjoyed many years in the teaching profession, I took the step of taking my qualifications in order to become a practising Hypnotherapist and Reiki Healer, enabling me to help others as well as myself. I am committed to this purpose and offer a relaxed, friendly and caring approach to all my clients.  My qualifications include:

  • Practitioners Diploma in Hypnotherapy (HPD)
