Dr Suzanne Lock PhD, DHP, HPD, AfSFH, MNCH (reg.), CNHC registered

I hold a Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy from Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (Oxford). This is the gold standard in hypnotherapy training, providing the knowledge and practical skills required to help clients to make positive changes in their lives. I am a member of the AfSFH, and registered with the NCH and CNHC, so you can have confidence that I have insurance and comply with a code of professional conduct and ethics.

My background is in Philosophy, with specialisation in the Philosophy of Mind. I was awarded a PhD from the University of Sheffield, with a doctoral thesis was on the subject of mental causation. My research included work on happiness, and interdisciplinary work with a psychologist on the subject of afterlife beliefs. I worked as a Lecturer at the University of Glasgow before moving to Bath determined to make happiness a way of life, not just a theoretical endeavour.

My private practice is located in Box, Wiltshire. You will be welcomed in to my garden room, which is a light, bright and relaxing setting for our sessions. I am available for online or face-to-face appointments. There is parking available nearby, and the X31 bus is convenient if you’re coming from Bath, Corsham or Chippenham.

I was introduced to hypnotherapy in 2016 when I used antenatal hypnotherapy to prepare for the birth of my daughter. It helped me enormously, giving me confidence and the ability to deeply relax, which were both vital skills helping me to achieve a positive birthing experience.
