About Barbara

I am a qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist and also a psychotherapist. You will find me friendly and approachable. I will not judge you nor ‘diagnose’ you. I will listen to you, I will empathise with your situation. I will work with you to find your perfect solution state. I will not label you or your problem, you already know what the problem is and you already know what the solution is; I will help you find it. I will help you to make the changes in you so you can live your life differently.

I am an Accredited member of the National Council of Hypnotherapy [MNCH)] who promotes the highest professional standards in its members. Because of this, you can be certain that I happily adhere to their strict code of ethics and conduct. I have been awarded the NCH Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) which is the first nationally accredited hypnotherapy qualification awarded by the NCFE National Awarding Body.

I am fully insured, as are all members of the NCH and a member of the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) and I am  totally committed to undertake continuous professional development (CPD) so that you can be assured that I have access to the most up to date techniques available.

From the very first session I started to notice a difference and this radiated in my place of work. Those people who made me feel inferior before affected me much less and I started to thrive within my workplace. As I progressed through my sessions my confidence grew and as did my self esteem. Everything started to feel a bit more positive and when faced with a negative or vulnerable situation, I was able to utilise the tools that she taught me to help me understand my feelings a little more and gradually untie the previous tangle that was once my everyday. I can honestly say that nobody has helped me as much as Barbara and I believe that there is no words to justify how much she has changed my life!

"Barbara has a natural gift for the incredible work that she does. Initially, before visiting the Natural Therapy Centre for a consultation, I was heavily sceptical. I had previously tried traditional counselling but had had some bad experiences with therapists and did not find traditional counselling very effective. When I met Barbara, she was warm, knowledgeable and genuinely passionate about her work. From the get go, I felt comfortable, able to talk through personal problems free of judgement and knew instantly Barbara was someone who could relate to my problems and who I could work with. She has wide-ranging expertise and draws on different techniques, such as Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and the exercises are heavily visual. It helps to arrive to sessions with an inquisitive mindset, willing to test the boundaries of your own mind, and explore the limitations of your thoughts and behaviour. I was genuinely surprised by the changes I was able to make, with Barbara's guidance, and the progress I was able to cover over a relatively short space of time. It is recommended to keep a mental note of what you would like to achieve over the course of your therapy session(s), but it is a truly worthwhile investment in yourself and your mental wellbeing." BARBARA HAS A NATURAL GIFT FOR THE INCREDIBLE WORK THAT SHE DOES. Since seeing Barbara I can honestly say she has changed my life around. I have had no panic attacks at all, I am more open and more social and I walk in to work straight away. I have had life throw some stuff at me and it wasn't until a couple of days after I had realised this would normally make me panic and increase my anxiety but it hasn't. What an incredible and professional lady, I've already recommended her to so many people with all the help she has given me I believe other people can benefit from seeing her for their own reasons. A five star business and I will never look back. Thank you for everything".

"I sought help from Barbara Hay for issues of anger and alcohol abuse and the consequential damage being suffered in my marriage. Her approach is totally professional, good humoured and empathetic and she achieved major, positive results with me in a relatively short time. In my direct experience, the effects of her therapies are nothing short of miraculous and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone seeking help and sustained relief from unwanted behavioural and addiction issues in their life" ACHIEVED MAJOR, POSITIVE RESULTS – TB SOUTHSEA "At a stage in my life when I needed support, Barbara was there to help me. We worked together through the sessions with no pressure from her, all led by me and my feelings. A great support in a time of need"

I came to Barbra just before I hit breaking point when I knew I needed help to try and prevent myself from spiralling further. At first I was terrified of the prospect of discussing my problems and I had lost faith that anyone could help me. On our initial meeting straight away I felt a connection with her, she made me feel at ease and I immediately felt I had a friend and a protector to guide me and help me understand why things felt so difficult. I automatically felt that a weight had been lifted and that If anyone could help she would be the person. Throughout our sessions we uncovered some emotional memories but I never left a session feeling worse then I did when I started. She always made me feel as though I was safe and in control and never pushed me further then I felt comfortable with.

"I cannot thank or recommended Barbara Hay enough. I was recommended to her by some family members and at first I was sceptical but after the first session with her I knew it was the best thing to do. Before I had visited Barbara, my life was hard to live I suffered from very high anxiety and panic attacks to the point it would take me half hour to walk in to work before Icould go in, I was not able to settle down because I felt like everyone was watching me, I was too scared to go to social events and when I did I would zone out and not even talk to my close friends and it affected me so much. I had lost count how many times I had an ambulance called out, it was really starting to affect me, my family and my relationship. Since seeing Barbara I can honestly say she has changed my life around. I have had no panic attacks at all, I am more open and more social and I walk in to work straight away. I have had life throw some stuff at me and it wasn't until a couple of days after I had realised this would normally make me panic and increase my anxiety but it hasn't. What an incredible and professional lady, I've already recommended her to so many people with all the help she has given me I believe other people can benefit from seeing her for their own reasons. A five star business and I will never look back. Thank you for everything". NO MORE PANIC ATTACKS –

DB, Southsea

Barbara has helped me discover so much about myself and through my sessions with her I've made huge changes in my life that benefit my whole well being and that of my family. It's been a difficult year with lots of health worries but Barbara has helped me get through them and I'm very grateful for her knowledge and support. If, like me, anxiety and depression has always been a part if your life, I can highly recommend seeing Barbara as she's helped me find a way to truly own it and by doing so it doesn't control me anymore! Thank you!

Barbara has helped me so so much, I can not recommend her enough. I have learnt so much about myself as well as come to terms with situations & feelings I had that weren’t serving me well but just brushing them away, thinking I was okay. I wasn’t deep down. Feelings & thoughts that stemmed from certain times in my life that ultimately lead to the way I felt for such a long time - I learnt about how our minds work, it’s absolutely fascinating & how it’s all linked that I find myself now reading up about it all & everything just falls into place It literally is mind blowing at how powerful our minds are & what they can do to our bodies when we feel stressed or anxious, low or depressed, panicked or helpless. I have come away from this experience not only stronger in my mind & able to think clearer, have a clear mind when I am relaxing - my favourite part. Not be defensive, think differently about situations & how to react, more importantly to not overthink things & to be open & honest about my feelings & how things affect me
