Is it time to bring some self-compassion, acceptance and kindness into your life?

Hello and welcome to Ameigh Therapy. I'm Charlotte Ameigh, I'm a Yorkshire based therapist specialising in hypnotherapy and incorporating CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and NLP (neuro linguistic programming). I support people struggling with issues that are getting in the way of them leading the life they want.

I'll start by letting you into a secret. One of the best things about what I do, is when a client tells me that they feel like they don't need to see me anymore. That's when I know that creating time and space for self-compassion, kindness and yes, therapy has paid off.

I think one of the many reasons I was drawn to hypnotherapy and talking therapies is because I want people to see that as human beings, we aren't flawed or broken. It's just that sometimes we get stuck and overwhelmed or we just can't see our way out of a situation.And this is why I believe talking therapies alongside hypnotherapy are such a powerful solution to many of the issues holding us back in our lives. Plus, results can be quick. Whether it's a fear or phobia, low confidence or self-esteem, anxiety, depression, sleep problems or chronic pain. Therapy can help you find a way through.


Why specialise in hypnotherapy?


Simple! Because I know it works. I've turned to hypnotherapy several times in my life and I've felt the same breakthroughs and lightbulb moment as my clients. It never ceases to amaze me that just a few hypnotherapy sessions can lead to long lasting, positive change in someone's life.


My ethos and approach


I follow a 'person-centred' approach to therapy, which is based on three core concepts: that as your therapist I am genuine, non-judgmental and empathetic. These qualities underpin my practice and every client session interaction. I see my role as simply providing you with a safe and positive space to grow and develop. My ethos is based on the teachings of the psychologist Carl Rogers who developed the person or client centred approach to therapy I mention above, and Milton Erikson for his work in hypnosis and family therapy. I've added links so that you can read a little more about them, their work and theories. I love this Carl Rogers quote in particular because it sums up how I see people.

'A person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity, a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits.'

Carl R. Rogers, On Becoming a Person: A Therapist's View of Psychotherapy


How I can support you


While this page gives you an insight to who I am, what I do and why, what's more important is showing you how I can support you. There's more detail about hypnotherapy and the other talking therapies I practice on my What's it all about page while my Fees & Services page will show you just that - my fees. I've also added a free Relaxation recording for you to access whenever you want.

Virtual hypnotherapy in Yorkshire


I am based in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, and work with clients in person (when we're able to) and virtually using Zoom. Many clients have discovered a virtual Zoom hypnotherapy session can be just as wonderful and effective as meeting in person.


My experience and qualifications


I studied Psychology at Lancashire University before heading into the world of education. I spent 20 years as a primary school teacher, supporting young people in their learning and emotional education. As well as completing my hypnotherapy, CBT and NLP training I am part way through training to become a BACP accredited counsellor.
