Barbara Shead (DHP) LAPHP,CNHC is a fully insured Clinical Hypnotherapist and Hypnoanalyst with an Advanced International Diploma in Psychotherapy. Barbara also holds the title of Nutritional Therapist (Dip) MFNTP, and whilst totally enamoured with the principles of nutritional therapy for optimal health, decided to study hypnotherapy because she felt that these new skills may be a beneficial addition to her qualifications to better enable her to help her clients to maintain and regain optimal health and well-being.

Barbara trained at The Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnosis under the tutorage of Terence Watts, well known and highly respected hypnotherapist, lecturer and author. The Essex Institute is one of the few schools who have the approval of the Secretary of State to use the title Institute, illustrating the fact they are eminent in the field of hypnotherapy.

Since qualifying as a hypnotherapist Barbara has undertaken further extensive training and can also now offer services such as helping to change or eradicate unwanted habits, beliefs and behaviours, helping with goal achievement, self confidence, exam nerves and driving test fears and helping alleviate anxiety and stress. A two hour smoking cessation programme is also very popular.

Barbara works at Body Kind/Yoma Therapies Clinic, Southend a multi-disciplinary complementary health clinic where she offers a confidential, non-judgmental and professional service for clients.
