Inspiring Changes

Helping You Change Your Life

Nicolette Pinkney


As a Hypno-Psychotherapist, my training in 2009 included a broad background in psychotherapeutic techniques in addition to hypnotherapy, NLP and solution-focused counselling. This allows me to address clients’ issues with a greater understanding of the underlying causes and how these may successfully be resolved. In addition, I am now qualified as a Senior Hypnotherapist, holding a SQHP certificate issued by the General Hypnotherapy Register. This demonstrates extensive experience and many years working within this field.

Using the skills and expertise gained over ten years, I have worked with hundreds of clients, many of whom have been recommended to me. I always aim to treat clients in the minimum number of sessions, with the intention of getting positive, lasting results.

   It is really important to choose a therapist that you trust and feel comfortable with. I would therefore encourage you to give me a call in advance of any possible therapy so that you can find out more about me and the therapies I offer. There is no charge for this initial consultation, so please do contact me to find out where you go from here.

I run an informal but professional practice, with a friendly, understanding and non-judgemental approach. My aim is to allow you the opportunity to relax and where necessary, discuss things openly, enabling you to achieve positive change, create a sense of balance and purpose in your life and resolve your issues as quickly and effectively as possible. Every session is completely private and confidential.

About Me

 I am a professional, fully qualified and registered hypnotherapist, with a background in psychotherapy and NLP.

I work from my Inspiring Changes practice in the village of Lover, on the Wiltshire/Hampshire border and also at Neal’s Yard Remedies in the historic city of Salisbury and the Wessex Health Network in Christchurch.


I am a Senior Practitioner member of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR), the largest and one of the most highly regarded professional organisations for hypnotherapists and am also validated by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

I am regulated by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the UK regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners whose key function is to enhance public protection by setting standards for registration within CNHC. The CNHC ‘quality mark’ is being recognised as the hallmark of quality for the sector.

Peace of Mind

I have professional and public liability insurance and adhere to the National Code of Ethics for Hypnotherapists.

I have a DBS and Enhanced Disclosure CRB check enabling me to work with children, thereby giving parents and carers peace of mind.


Guarantees are considered irresponsible and disallowed by many of the top hypnotherapy associations, including the GHR with whom I am registered. As a result, I offer no guarantee with any type of therapeutic intervention. Each works differently with different people and at different times.

The cost of each session pays for my time. I do, however, assure you that I will work with you, to the best of my abilities, applying my years of experience with the aim of achieving the result you are seeking.

My Background

My background was initially in science and engineering, however, over the years I became more and more interested in the power of our minds; how our thoughts and feelings can affect not only our state of mind, but also our overall physical health and consequently our quality of life.

Following a personal experience of hypno-psychotherapy in which a long-term health issue was resolved, I realised how powerful and effective these therapies can be and wanted to be able to help others in a similar way.

I therefore studied and trained in hypnotherapy and psychotherapy, NLP and solution-focused counselling and subsequently qualified as a hypno-psychotherapist. Furthermore, I have undertaken extensive professional training in related fields, as part of my Continued Professional Development, including EMDR.

I have experienced many ‘alternative’ therapies, treatments and complementary medicines and am open and sceptical in equal measures! My belief is that many of these can have a significant impact at an emotional, physical and spiritual level and unless we try it, we’ll never know. What works for one, may not for another.

Reiki is one of those therapies that I connected with at a much deeper level (despite being somewhat skeptical initially). I read lots around the subject before studying for Level 1 Reiki, at which point I was hooked! Having worked with this powerful energy for a while and seen the enormous benefits friends and family were experiencing, I went on to gain the Reiki Level 2 Practitioner qualification and then the next and final level in Reiki, that of Reiki Master.

Using the combination of therapies I practice, I get immense satisfaction in helping my clients move on in their lives; whether it be by changing the things they want to change, feeling or responding differently or simply enabling them to take charge of their lives. Whilst the therapies are by no means guaranteed as a 100% ‘cure-all’, the difference they can make to so many peoples’ lives keeps me motivated, enthusiastic and inspired to help others, like yourself, change your life.
