I developed my Hypnotherapy practice in 2002 and have worked with over 2000 clients since, helping them to make the changes they seek.
Since 2016, my clients have been located all over the UK as well as international, rather than locally to me, which has moved my work online via skype, facetime or facebook video. Please note – From May 2018, I will only be taking clients online.
“I have been amazed and astounded by the changes that my clients have made to their lives through hypnotherapy sessions with me over the past 15 years. I consider myself blessed to have been a part of each person’s journey; a journey which is often challenging – taking trust, determination and a willingness to overcome their individual obsticles in order to find the release and peace that each seeks. I am proud to have known and worked with each and every one of them.” – Julie
I have a busy practice, working with clients worldwide. I specialise in anxiety, trauma, and PTSD, working with clients suffering chronic fatigue, food intolerances, stress/anxiety, OCD, chronic pain, migraine, but also work with many other issues such as eating disorders, food intolerance, migraines, chronic fatigue, phobias, OCD, PTSD, depression, sleep issues and many more. I work with and use a variety of methods including behaviourism, conditioning, CBT, emotion code, energy release, emotional release, mindfulness and stress reduction, with a success rate of 98.7%.
I am the published author of three fiction novels (details on www.juliepooleauthor.com) as well as one, ‘non-fiction self-help’ book: ‘Moving Past the Past – A Guide for Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse.’ You can find all of my books on my shop on this website, or on Amazon worldwide.
Qualifications and Experience
I trained and qualified as a professional Hypnotherapist in 2002 obtaining a Diploma in Hypnotherapy (SAC Dip. Professional Hypnotherapy) and a Diploma in Regression Therapy (SAC Dip. Regression). I became registered with the GHR at that time – General Hypnotherapy Register (member number 1066) and the GHSC – General Hypnotherapy Standards Council. In October 2010 I was awarded SQHP from the GHR which is a Senior Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice status due to my experience and professional development. In February 2015 I became a full member of the CNCH (Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council) – registration number 000106-B15. Links to all organisations are at the bottom of this page within the registration body logo’s.
As part of my professional development, I began a degree in Psychology and Sociology in 2013. This further developed my understanding of mental health as well as gaining insight into biological issues such as stress factors on the hormones, amygdala, adrenals, the brain and glands. I also studied behaviour extensively, both individually and socially. I obtained my degree, BSc (Hons) in September 2017.
I am fully insured to practice professionally.
The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) was set up by the government to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of complementary therapists. To be admitted to the CNHC register, a complementary therapist must:
- Meet ‘National Occupational Standards’ for their therapy
- Confirm that they do not have a criminal record (including cautions)
- Confirm that there are no health issues that affect their ability to practise
- Confirm that there have not been any disciplinary or civil proceedings taken against them that relate to their practice
- Hold current professional indemnity insurance
- Agree to keep to CNHC’s Code of Conduct, Ethics and Performance
- Keep their knowledge and skills up to date
SQHP status explained
Since the 1st August 2003, The General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC) has been awarding the General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice (GQHP) to suitably qualified practitioners. The award is available to any hypnotherapist who:
- 1 – Has successfully completed a practitioner level training course as acknowledged by the GHSC and GHR
- 2 – Is registered within The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)
- 3 – Who maintains the requirements for such registration on an annual basis
A Senior award, the SQHP, is also available for practitioners who, in addition to the above requirements, have been in continual practice for a minimum of 5 years and who have maintained a minimum average client workload of 25 hours per month throughout that period.
Working with vulnerable adults and children
I hold an Enhanced DBS check which means I have been verified as safe to work with both vulnerable adults and children. Enhanced DBS Check April 2016 (Disclosure and Baring Service – was known as Criminal Records Bureaux)
Originally from Cardiff, my first career was in housing, support and homelessness, working predominantly with vulnerable people. In 2000 I left housing and trained and qualified in Hypnotherapy setting up my practice in 2002. Since that time I have used not only my training as a Hypnotherapist but also the skills, knowledge and experience I gained in my housing career along with my management experience and people skills to develop myself as a successful therapist.
Professional development & Registration Bodies
As a full member of the GHR, GHSC and CNCH, I receive monthly updates of training, development and new practice to ensure that I stay up to date with current guidelines and new emerging developments.
