Job Profile Image

Hypnotherapists use simple hypnotic or relaxation techniques as a form of therapy to treat a wide range of physical and psychological conditions.

They help their clients overcome problems such as low self-esteem, anxiety, unwanted habits (such as overeating or smoking), a personal crisis (such as bereavement or trauma), or stress related issues (like panic attacks, sleeping problems or phobias).

Most hypnotherapists are self-employed. They charge by the session, so your income would depend on the number of hours you spend treating clients. Current rates start at around £50 to £80 for a session lasting 60 to 90 minutes.
