Hello, I am Silvia and I am a clinical solution focused hypnotherapist based in Bristol.

Before becoming a hypnotherapist, I worked both as a teacher and a translator.

I have always been fascinated by complementary therapies, neuroscience and the innate potential that each of us has within. This fascination has started in my early twenties when I read “The Primal Scream” by Arthur Janov, which motivated me to search further for answers and therapies that explored the power of the human mind.

I have always known that what I was searching for was a therapy that is forward-looking, so when I learnt about hypnotherapy I realised instantly that it was a path that I wanted to pursue.

I got my Diploma at the prestigious Clifton Practice in Bristol and I am a member of the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy which insists on highest standards of practice, regular supervision and high level of professional conduct. I am registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council, the UK regulator for complementary healthcare approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. I hold and Enhanced DBS Certificate and I am fully insured to practise hypnotherapy.

I am passionate about hypnotherapy and dedicated to continual professional development to further my knowledge and skills. I regularly attend courses and workshops as I want to offer my clients only the best and stay updated with the latest research.

My special niche is stress and anxiety management, weight management, restoring confidence and self-esteem, overcoming fears and phobias and preparing for calm and comfortable birth. 

Hypnotherapy has been a huge influence in my life and gave me a greater sense of purpose. I am deeply fascinated by this knowledge and I am eager to share it with you. I work with individuals as well as groups so please check out my workshops page or follow me for further updates.

If you run a club or a group and would like me to share with you some ideas on how to be more calm, confident and solution-focused, do get in touch!

We all need a helping hand from time to time, and as poet John Donne put wisely: “No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent.”
