About Nicola – Hypnotherapist

Find out more about me, my practice and how hypnotherapy can help you.

Hello and welcome to West Wales Hypnotherapy.  I am Nicola Hughes-Gage.  I am a clinical hypnotherapist and hypno-analyst.  I trained at the Essex Institute (www.essexinstitute.co.uk) with Terence Watts, who is one of the most experienced therapists and teachers in the UK.  He is one of the few hypnotherapy professionals to be admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine.

My road to hypnotherapy has been a long one. I worked for many years in the commercial sector as a Buyer and Administrator before giving it all up when I became a mother.  Once my children were in school I changed direction and went to work in a primary school, initially with children with special educational needs.  It was here that I first developed a passion for helping children, through nurture groups, to grow personally, socially and emotionally so that they could fulfil their potential academically.  Having run these groups successfully for many years I realised that in order to be more effective I needed to grow professionally.   Becoming a hypnotherapist has enabled me to fulfil this goal and so much more.  I feel I have found my true vocation in life.

My main focus now is to help both adults and children with a huge range of issues, particularly through hypnoanalysis where the results can be amazing.

Whatever your concern, I can offer a fully confidential, friendly and non-judgemental service. Your issues will be dealt with sensitively and together we can find a practical solution allowing you to move on and fulfil your potential.

Having worked very successfully with several hundred adults with  a huge variety of issues;

helping people suffering with anxiety, panic attacks, sleep issues, improving their self confidence, fears and phobias,having more confidence driving and quit smoking, are very common.

Seeing the transformation of clients that have gone through Analysis,which is used to discover and resolve the root cause of a problem or problems,is truly inspirational. One Client couldn’t believe she had “found the real me for the first time”

I have worked very successfully with Primary age children for issues such as confidence, concentration and selective eating, fear of death  and Secondary age for bullying,self harming, bedwetting, anger management, self confidence and  exam confidence.
