I experienced anxiety, low confidence and self sabotage at work and social situations.

I was dubious about therapy but was instantly put at ease by Bernadette. She used a variety of techniques, set me homework and I started to notice positive changes.

Bernadette helped me re-evaluate my outlook on life and self belief. The coaching method used has also had a huge impact. I've gone on to have a promotion at work and am more relaxed about speaking up and sharing my knowledge. My team has given me great feedback for being supportive too.

Releasing the Past + Embracing the Now + Unleashing Future Potential

Cognitive hypnotherapy

Our unconscious is responsible for 95% of our behaviours which is why hypnotherapy is so effective. It helps us  get to the root of the issue instead of dealing with the symptom. 

We work at the client’s pace to get to deep seated beliefs and thought patterns in order to be able to live in the present and look to the future.

Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy incorporates the most effective elements from CBT, Neuroscience, Positive Psychology (but is not limited to that). This enables us to adapt to the individual and tailor make their treatment.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP): NLP is a psychological approach that explores how people think, communicate, and achieve their goals.

It empowers individuals to reprogram their thought patterns, improve their communication skills, and boost their confidence, leading to personal and professional growth.


Coaching enables us to look towards your future. It is a goal-oriented process that can focus on personal and professional development. As part of talking therapy we work towards new goals with their new found strengths and take action to achieve the future they want. 

Providing support, guidance as the client explores a future where they are not held back from previous issues.
