Hypnotherapy Mindful Life Coaching Stress Management

My name is Gill Matthews and I am a professional Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist, Mindful Life Coach and Stress Management Consultant. I practice in Barton on Sea, New Milton, between Southampton and Lymington in Hampshire, Bournemouth and Christchurch in Dorset.

I am a Registered Hypnotherapy professional with the CNHC (an Accredited Register approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care).

I am a Senior Practitioner and Peer Supervisor with the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and have been in full-time practice for 36 years. It is now scientifically recognised that stress is the pre-cursor to the malaise of humanity, my expertise lies in all stress related issues known to man, woman and child!

I offer all sessions face-to-face or online.

I am very committed to helping people heal their minds but am acutely aware that our environment is also affecting us and have been looking for something to help the body heal from the effects of things like EMF’s. I found Somavedic and have bought devices not only for me but also my two sons. I am happy to talk to you about what we experienced.

Home. Reaching goals

In my work I use the many approaches I have learned during 36 years in practice to help you find solutions to issues and problems you may be experiencing, to educate and empower you to grow, flourish and reach your full potential. There is rarely a single way of treating a problem, even if it comes with a nice clear label. I will work with you to achieve your aims and your goals. You will always be treated as the totally unique person you are because you perceive life your own way!

The other aspect of sessions with me is that I will listen. How often do you get the undivided attention of another person with the time to explore exactly who you are, without judgement? Evolve into your best you, find the awesome person you really are.

”Within our purpose we are always learning 
and growing,
Yet, today, we are enough.
It is about the journey (as the saying goes),
rather than arriving at the destination.
The destination is always moving;
and that is what makes living 
an exciting adventure.
We never know what is there for us
around the next bend.
Best, accept the present
it is a gift after all”.

"I had been to see Gill with my son for a "Blow Away" session 5 years ago when he was 10 years old. It was to help him with settling into a new school, area and overcome a fear of water. The results were amazing and life changing for him.

I knew where to turn when I started suffering from anxiety, for no apparent reason other than fear of something, when being driven on long journeys, and was basically not really coping well with life.

Age-old baggage and painful life experiences - as I learnt with Gill - can come back to pain us at any time in our lives and exhibit themselves in a range of different physical ways. Through hypnosis, Gill helped me to find and understand the root of my current anxieties and essentially change how I thought about them, and so put them to rest. Something that past, standard counselling sessions hadn't got close to achieving
My sessions with Gill also helped me deeply realise and see that unwanted behaviours, practised for a lifetime, can still be stopped and replaced by behaviours and thoughts that are much kinder for myself and those around me.

I have signed off for now, a much stronger person, a lot more content in myself. I am starting to accept myself, like myself and am feeling far more relaxed - and free - than I have done in years.

Thank you Gill, I'll be in touch :-)

I wanted to thank you so much for all your hard work giving me the tools / showing me the way to enable my scared inner child to come out to play and stop hiding! I really feel that my adult self and child self have been merging over the last few months so I now feel like one person.  I feel so much more confident talking to people as the real me this week - not having to hide my gentleness and not feeling scared to show my vulnerability.

I have been so very happy inside and out!

I have come a long way thanks to your help but I ‘know’ (😊) I have also put the hard work in too!

I feel I am ready to take the reins but hopefully if I need to go any further at a later date you will have me back!

Update 5 months later…….

When I sent the last email I was still processing!- but wow am I there now!! You wouldn’t recognise me! (some days I don’t even recognise me haha!!)

I still can’t thank you enough for all your hard work helping me to be the whole person I have become- life is amazing… I am so open/strong, I now say how I feel!!

I also have an amazing man in my life! So thank you as this wouldn’t have happened without the work we did together. 🙏😘xx

"I brought my seven year old daughter along to see Gill primarily because of her deep fear of the sea and generally low sense of self esteem. Following our session, my daughter immediately showed signs of improved mental strength and her self esteem grew enormously. She now tackles new things with vigour and is more likely to take chances without fear of failure. She finds great happiness in playing in the sea and has brushed off her previous fears. She regularly uses the techniques shown to her by Gill to help manage her emotions and feels in control and empowered. We can't believe what a difference an hour has made to her life and her future."

'What if the worst thing that happened to you turns out to be the best thing that ever happened to you?'
Dr. Joe Dispenza

"Whilst generally a fairly balanced person, I have always lived with an underlying degree of uncertainty about myself and a lack of assertiveness which I believe has impacted on my career progression, my relationships with others and my happiness in general. I felt that as a result I was always a step behind where I could be, or perhaps deserved to be.

After years of telling myself to 'pull myself together' and 'just be more confident', but with no real progress, I decided to try something new. That's when I found Gill.

Gill helped me to understand where my thoughts and behaviour patterns were coming from and rather than just giving me coping techniques, she taught me how to address the blockages at the root cause.

By applying the methods Gill has taught me, I am learning so much about myself and building a better relationship with myself. The result is that I feel calmer and more 'complete' somehow and the positive effect this is having on my life, my confidence, my stress levels and even the way others respond to me is noticable daily.

The further along this facinating journey I go, the more pleased I am that I made that first appointment with Gill. It is literally life transforming. Thank you Gill!
