Hello, my name is Julie Phillips. Ten years ago I experienced high levels of stress, anxiety and panic symptoms whilst working as a teacher & Head of Department. The resulting 'burn out' lead to me leave my job. In 2013, I retrained as a hypnotherapist. Now I help people like you to reduce your stress, anxiety, trauma and deal with issues in work, relationships and life changes.
My teaching career started teaching in 2001. I loved it, I thought I would be in teaching forever! Sadly, as my career progressed, I felt the pressure of making sure I was on top form professionally whilst trying to be a good mother to my two children stressful and exhausting. Juggling work and family life was difficult. Looking back , it was not surprising that I developed physical symptoms of anxiety too, I wasn’t sleeping, eating properly and there was no time for exercise; life seemed overwhelming.
When my GP doctor signed me off work and diagnosed stress & anxiety, I knew this was a wake- up call; something had to change; I made the difficult decision to resign my teaching post and re-evaluate my work-life balance.
A friend mentioned hypnotherapy. I didn’t know what to expect but I decided to keep an open mind about therapy & coaching: I wanted something to help me feel better and quickly!
Hypnotherapy was wonderful: during the session I was fully aware of what was being said to me; I was totally relaxed. I felt like my body was heavy and my mind was floating. By the end of the session, my anxiety had reduced and the stress had gone. It felt like someone had pressed the ‘factory re-set button’ on my brain. In just one therapy session, I felt calmer and back in control of my life.
I knew then that hypnotherapy was powerful. There was total clarity about my next decision: I decided to retrain as a therapist with a focus on analytical hypnotherapy .

Today, I remain a down to earth ‘Yorkshire lass’, I love walking in nature with my family and my dogs. I have a comfortable therapy room in Stokesley to see clients face to face and I work nationally and internationally online. I run workshops and meditation classes. I understand how difficult it can feel thinking about starting therapy; I promise I will make it as easy possible for you to get the change your need.
