Heide Ziegenbein MSc Clin.Hyp./ DIHM (Heilpraktiker)
I am a qualified and accredited clinical hypnotherapist with 12 years experience working with people suffering from a variety of problems or who want to make a change in their lives. Interested in the science behind the way our mind works and influences our lives, I am looking for evidence based, and therefore solution orientated, approaches in the methods I choose in therapy.
In my work, I focus on treatments for stress and anxiety which are often associated with lack of self-confidence or self esteem. These problems can be experienced by musicians, actors or athletes but also generally in the work environment, in exam situations, or any kind of performance or demonstration. Likewise, medical conditions can lead to stress and anxiety.
The combination of Clinical Hypnotherapy with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Mindfulness provides an efficient approach in therapy. It can also be successfully used as an integrative adjunct to traditional therapy.
I am a member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) and registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
Originally I trained as a wood sculptor before retraining as a Heilpraktiker (Non-medical Practitioner). I established my own private practice in Germany in 2006, with hypnotherapy an essential part of my work, and an area I developed further though my studies at the London College of Clinical Hypnosis and the University of West London.
Having spent countless hours in rehearsal rooms and on stage myself, I know personally the feelings of doubt, fear and stage fright very well. However, I also know from personal experience the powerful and sometimes surprising benefits that individualised hypnotherapy can bring.
I don’t promise miracle cures or one session quick fixes. Change can take time. Still, hypnotherapy is a gentle way to make a difference in your life or to get to the root of what is holding you back. Knowing this, lasting and potentially life changing transformation becomes possible.
