About Us
Hi. I'm Lydia.
I know that modern day life can be difficult. Really difficult. The day to day pressures of work, school, relationships, social media, parenthood – it can all too easily become overwhelming. And when we feel overwhelmed, we often feel stressed, anxious, depressed or we may develop unhealthy behaviours, such as smoking, overeating, drinking. We may become withdrawn, lack motivation, feel worthless or angry.
But it does not have to be this way.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist with over 15 years experience working with children, adults and families. Using Solution Focussed techniques, alongside hypnotherapy, I can provide a range of therapeutic services designed to help you build your own path to a more positive future.

My Credentials.
As a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist I am a registered member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I am also accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.

I graduated from the University of Surrey in 2005 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology and went on to work with children and families in a variety of roles such as Assistant Psychologist, Education Welfare Officer and Primary School Teacher. I remained a teacher for 8 years before completing my Level 4 diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy with Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training School (CPHT) in 2020.

I opened Stepping Stones Practice in 2020 and as well as seeing private clients online and in my clinic in Horam I also enjoy delivering workshops to schools, charities and businesses. In 2023 I joined the lecturing team at CPHT, training other people to become Solution Focused Hypnotherapists. Also in 2023 I was very proud to receive the Prestige Southern England Award for "Hypnotherapy Clinic of the Year for East Sussex."
