Yvonne Quaintrell MBACP
Counsellor & Hypnotherapist

Hello! I am an experienced counsellor and hypnotherapist. I am here to help you. I have worked with people from all walks of life and ages; I have extensive experience of working with business owners, parents, carers and children and young people. I am a calm, supportive and caring person and will take time to listen to you. 

We can all feel overwhelmed at times, but I firmly believe that each of us has the power to make changes to our lives and our environment. I will work with you on a solution that is realistic and right for you.  I have worked with people as young as 7 all the way up to 88! I enjoy helping people to find solutions that work for them.
