Sue Drake, Cognitive Hypnotherapist

MSc, BSc(Hons), DipCHyp, HPD, MNLP, MNCH (Acc), DipCouns.

I consider myself very fortunate to have trained with amazing teachers.

I trained as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist with the Quest Institute whose training programme and qualification requirements are amongst the most rigorous in the UK. My teacher was Trevor Silvester author and creator of Cognitive Hypnotherapy and Wordweaving and Director of Quest. Quest is a wonderful collection of like minded people who work together with an active curiosity and sense of discovery. Through Quest I was awarded a Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy (DipCHyp) with Distinction.

I have also trained in the following:
  • NLP Certified to Master Practitioner level (Quest);
  • Certified Master Hypnotherapist (Erickson Hypnosis);
  • Eye Movement Integration Plus (EMI);
  • Emotional Freedom Technique. 

I am required to undertake regular continued personal development and as such consider myself fortunate to have studied with Dr Stephen Gilligan Internationally renowned Psychologist and author. Robert Dilts Internationally recognized author and one of the foremost developers and teacher in the field of NLP and EMI Plus Trauma Resolution with Nigel Hetherington.

As an Accredited Member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy MNCH (Acc.) I abide by their codes of conduct. I am a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). Its key function is to enhance public protection by setting standards for regulation with CNHC. The CNHC ‘quality mark’ is being recognised as a hallmark of quality for the sector. The Department of Health recommends that, when seeing a hypnotherapist you consult one who is CNHC registered.

Before training in Hypnotherapy and NLP I worked in a busy diversity department working with London communities, in public sector management, training and recruitment, obtaining a B.Sc.(Hons) in Police Studies, an M.Sc. in Forensic Psychology and a Diploma in Humanistic Counselling.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy brings my skills and experience of many years of working with people together with my belief that we can all achieve the changes we want in our life. I would love to help you achieve the changes you want.
