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

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. When I found out about hypnotherapy I knew instantly that it was the 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 also registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council, the UK regulator for complementary healthcare. I hold and Enhanced DBS Certificate and I am fully insured to practise hypnotherapy. 

As a lifelong learner, I take my continual professional development very seriously and I have furthered my skills with the Essex Institute of clinical hypnosis and The Institute of Brainworking recursive therapy. I regularly attend training and workshops as I want to stay updated with the latest research.

I have always believed that, despite how challenging life can sometimes be, every situation can be seen as an opportunity. Even in our darkest hour we still have the power – the power to steer our thoughts in the direction we want to go. Despite all the difficulties, fears or limiting beliefs, as long as there is willingness to move forward, we can create a better life for ourselves. We may sometimes wish to wait until the circumstances change or others recognise our efforts so we can finally be what we have always wanted to be. The truth is – even if we think that somebody owes it to us, we owe it to ourselves even more. Our life is too valuable to be left to chance. Despite how it may feel in this very moment, it can all be so much better in the next. So, reach out, talk to me. I will show you how.
