Hypnotherapy in Hackney

A bit about me...

Hi, I’m Rowenna and I’m a Cognitive Hypnotherapist, offering Hypnotherapy in Hackney. I help people who are looking for an effective way to free themselves from the symptoms of trauma, CPTSD, addictions, attachment issues and more.

Like many people, I’ve faced my fair share of challenges in life. I found hypnotherapy first as when I was seeking ways to overcome my own struggles with trauma, anxiety and addictions. The incredible changes I experienced inspired me to retrain and help other people like you and me, to live a life free of fear, anxiety, addiction and codependence. I have now helped hundreds of people using Hypnotherapy in Hackney and online. Read more about my story below.

My Story

Growing up with parents who were addicted to drugs and alcohol, life didn’t get off to a rosy start for me and my siblings. Many days and nights were spent alone, hungry and afraid, not knowing where our parents were or when they’d be back. 

Surrounded by drugs and alcohol, unsurprisingly I went off the rails myself. I dropped out of school at 15 and spent my time on the dance floors of the underground party scene in London. Feeling like an outcast and as though I wasn’t enough for society, I created an identity based around drinking and drugs. 

It was all fun and games of course, until it wasn’t. The reality of living a life on the edge was becoming clearer with every friend I lost to drugs. I knew I was on a one way street, and that I wanted more from life.

Somehow, I pulled myself out of that downward spiral and started putting the pieces of my life together. Fighting daily battles with anxiety, I put myself through college and eventually ended up in a successful teaching career. However, the crippling anxiety was worse without the fog of all the drugs. Panic attacks were a daily occurrence, and in an effort to cope I self-medicated with heavy drinking and non-prescription sleeping tablets. By my late 30’s I was addicted and burnt out. I knew I needed help! 

How I came to offer Cognitive Hypnotherapy in Hackney

That was when I reached out for help. It took me years of therapy and learning about CPTSD and other symptoms of trauma. A journey that I am still on today. Now, thankfully I am free from those awful symptoms and I am grateful that I am able to use my experience to help others who struggle in similar ways. in 2018 I retrained as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist, and I now offer Hypnotherapy in Hackney and worldwide online. I have gone on to train in other trauma therapies, specialising in the effects of childhood trauma and CPTSD.

I help others to heal from the crippling effects of childhood trauma and abuse, such as codependency, attachment issues, addictions and more. Using these techniques I help people restore a sense of self-worth, connection and confidence to live life fully.

You Can Change Too…

If there’s one thing I know, it’s that if I can recover then so can you! If you’re struggling with low self esteem, addictive behaviours, attachment issues or any other symptom of CPTSD, please get in touch. Let’s go on this journey together!
