Hypnotherapy in Hackney
Hi, I’m Rowenna and I’m a Cognitive Hypnotherapist, offering Hypnotherapy in Hackney and worldwide online. I help people who are looking for an effective way to free themselves from limiting self-beliefs and negative emotions that may be holding them back.
Like many people, I’ve faced my fair share of challenges in life. I first found hypnotherapy as when I was seeking ways to overcome my own struggles.
Having lived through abuse and grief trauma in my early years, I struggled with extreme low self-esteem, anxiety and addictions later in life. You can read more about my story below.
It has become my mission to help others who face similar struggles in life, offering Hypnotherapy in Hackney and online worldwide. I have now helped hundreds of people to recover, working in private practice and with the NHS.
Being born to parents who were addicted to drugs and alcohol, life didn’t get off to a easy 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.
As the daily fighting and abuse increased in their relationship (as with many relationships fuelled by drugs and alcohol), things got worse. When my father committed suicide when I was 12, I was so traumatised by the grief, I turned to drugs and alcohol 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 found a community where I felt I belonged, and created an identity based around drinking and drugs.
It was all great fun of course, until it wasn’t. The reality of living a life on the edge was becoming more real with every friend I lost to drugs. I knew I was on a one way street that didn’t end well, and 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 tranquillisers. By my mid 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. I found a good therapist and began learning about CPTSD and other symptoms of trauma. I managed to get sober and now, thankfully, I live a life free from addiction and daily anxiety.
In 2017 I left teaching and retrained as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist. I now offer Hypnotherapy in Hackney and worldwide online. I have also gone on to train in other trauma therapies such as IEMT and PIT (find out more about my training below).
I help others to heal from the crippling effects of low self-worth, anxiety, codependency, attachment issues, addictions and more. With the right guidance and support, it is possible to restore your self-worth, build healthy connections and find the 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 symptoms, please get in touch. We’ll go on this journey together!

All my life I suffered with some mild depression, anxiety and low self-esteem linked to childhood wounds. I did quite a lot of talk therapy and although it has been helpful in making me aware of some patterns, it didn't really help me change my behaviour. I have been working with Rowenna for a few months now and the changes in my behaviour and thinking are truly mind-blowing. Our work around family dynamics , inherited emotions and attachement wounds has helped change how I operate in relationships and professionally. Since starting working with Rowenna I have more confidence and compassion for myself. Most importantly I no longer see myself as broken or as a failure and I'm more excited about life in general.
Rowenna helped me with some emotional challenges that I was facing, which related to both my personal and professional life. We had six sessions and made significant progress during that time, I noted a considerable shift in my mindset in all of the areas addressed, which rippled out to other parts of my life.
Rowenna is very supportive and quick to work to the root of issues. The cognitive hypnotherapy practice during our sessions was a very active approach that directly worked on the core beliefs holding me back.
I'd recommend working with Rowenna if you're looking for a therapeutic approach that can tackle the root causes of issues, head-on.
I've had two sessions with Rowenna and I must say that the sessions have helped me immensely already and I thought it would take a lot longer to address the things that we have been working on.
She has a warm, kind compassionate way which immediately puts one at ease.
I would 100% recommend Rowenna's Congnitive Hypnotherapy to anyone that would like to work through any traumas that they may be struggling with.
Thank you once again Rowenna
I’ve been visiting Rowenna for a few months now and can honestly say that after trying other types of therapy, cognitive hypnotherapy with Rowenna has helped me enormously. I was a bit sceptical at first, partly due to my previous experiences with therapy, but I went in with an open mind and noticed a possitive change after my first session, which became more and more obvious over the next few weeks and months. I feel so much more relaxed and confident and it feels so natural to feel like this now.
Rowenna is extremely good at what she does and can identify what it is that will help you after your first discussion. She’s really knowledgable in her field and has given me a good understanding of how cognitive hypnotherapy works. She also takes the time to create personalised recordings for you, which I listen to once or twice a day between sessions. Rowenna is understanding, knowledgable and very calming, and I really can’t recommend her enough. Tom.
After years of counselling/CBT therapy to no avail, I decided to try Hypnotherapy. I can confidently say, Rowenna has helped transform my life. I have had 4 sessions with her & after years of suffering with severe anxiety, I see light at the end of the tunnel. Rowenna's sensitive, calm and sympathetic nature made it easy for me to delve deeply into past trauma and to confront it head on with her assistance. If you're reading this thinking maybe the idea of Hypnotherapy isn't for you, I urge you to try it. Rowenna will guide you step by step with compassion and understanding. She's a super hero!
