Hello and welcome to Walkway Hypnotherapy. My name is Nikki Walker and I am a qualified hypnotherapist. I have a diploma in hypnotherapy and I am registered with the GHSC and GHR. I have also been a Reiki practitioner since 2009.
My path to hypnotherapy began when helping a family member suffering from anxiety and depression. Traditional counselling was ineffective so it was time to ‘think outside the box’. I research various therapies and decided hypnotherapy was the one to try. The positive effect that hypnosis had, was quite remarkable. It was quick and effective. My mind was opened to how extremely powerful hypnotherapy is. It is life changing.
I have experienced the benefits of hypnotherapy myself. Since an aborted takeoff over 20 years ago, I have had an intense fear of flying. I realised hypnotherapy could be the answer. I had managed a trip to Italy in that time but it was a very stressful experience! The prospect of flying for longer than a couple of hours was completely out of the question. However, after just two hypnotherapy sessions I felt completely different. There was no fear, no anxiety. A few weeks later I flew to New York, somewhere I (or my husband) never imagined I would be able to go. The entire duration of the flight I was completely calm, in fact the flight was almost pleasant! Now the world is my oyster and all thanks to the power hypnotherapy.
The way that hypnotherapy has changed my life and others around me is what inspired me to train as a hypnotherapist. It is amazing to see how much hypnotherapy helps people with very diverse problems.
I have a particular interest in working with young people. Especially those suffering from anxiety, depression, phobias or lack of confidence as this is a subject very close to my heart.
