Hi, and thank you for taking the time to visit the Abbey Hypnotherapy NLP and Reiki website.
My name is Rebecca Dunn and I run Abbey Hypnotherapy NLP and Reiki in Sheffield S8, South Yorkshire. I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner, Stress Management consultant and Reiki/Seichem practitioner. NLP stands for Neuro-linguistic-programming and teaches methods for reprogramming the mind.
I came to hypnotherapy first as a client suffering from anxiety, stress and chronic pain in the form of Interstitial cystitis (a life changing and debilitating disease), which caused me to feel very depressed at times. I used hypnotherapy to help me get through a couple of daunting events but 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 feel they have helped me a great deal, together with Reiki, for which I am attuned, to completely transform the way I see the world. I finally gained control over my illness through eating a very strict raw 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 still use it to help me control the pain and help to keep me calm and positive about my situation. 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.
I offer Reiki and Seichem alongside my hypnotherapy work as I find that they complement each other and both have been valuable tools for overcoming my own illness, to find out more about how it works and how you could benefit from it, please visit the Reiki and Seichem page listed at the side.
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.

- Practitioners Diploma in Hypnotherapy (HPD)
- Diploma in Hypnotherapy (DipH)
- Advanced Certificate in Hypnotherapy for Stress (ACHS)
- Diploma in Neuro-linguistic-Programming (DipNLP)
- Certificate in Discursive Empowerment(CertDE)
- Bachelor of Education Degree (B-ED hons)
- Reiki Level 1 and 2 initiation Certificate

I am part of the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHR) therefore my work is checked and well regulated. I abide by their code of ethics as well as continue to develop my knowledge and skills with regular Professional Development Courses. I am also fully insured with Holistic Insurance Services.
