About Victoria

Hi, I’m Victoria Racey,

I’m a down to earth London girl thats always had a passion and desire to help people.

I first started learning about hypnotherapy over 20 years ago whilst working in a corporate environment. I loved the material and there my interest began and grew.

I first trained in Neuro Linguistic Programming NLP with Anthony Robbins whilst working for a training company that specialised in attitudinal based training & coaching in the workplace. This introduced me to the work of Richard Bandler the creator of NLP I went on to complete the NLP practitioner course in the late 1990’s. During this training I decided to become a fully licensed & accredited Counsellor and Hypnotherapist.

I first qualified in 2002 at The UK College of Complimentary Health Care based in St Charles Hospital, Notting Hill, London & Wembley Centre for Health & Care. Where I learnt Ericksonian based Hypnotherapy combined with Person Centred Counselling. We were taught how to work alongside the NHS, follow the codes of conduct set out by the GHR and become fully accredited and insured Hypnotherapists.

I completed a course in Cognitive, Behavioural Mindfulness at Oxford Mindfulness Centre this combines Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with Mindfulness. Should we work together I’ll teach you some Mindfulness that you’ll be able to easily  incorporate into your everyday life.

My most recent Diploma in Cognitive, Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBT) combines CBT with Hypnotherapy. I completed this Diploma at The UK College of Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy. This method takes a clinical evidence based approach and combines  Cognitive, Behavioural, Therapy (CBT) one of the most effective and now well used therapies and combines it with Hypnosis making it very effective this course is also approved by The British Psychological Society, General Hypnotherapy Register, Complimentary & National Healthcare Council and National Council of Hypnotherapy.

I’m fully insured and accredited hypnotherapist. I’m registered with:-

General Hypnotherapy Register – GHR

Complementary & National Healthcare Council – CNHC

National Council of Hypnotherapy – NCH

I’m currently working on another Diploma in Stress Management and Resilience Building thats recognised by the International Stress Management Association ISMA 

Since first becoming a therapist back in 2002… I’ve used these incredibly effective methods, unashamedly for my own self improvement. I’ve changed unhealthy habits, phobias, managed stress and anxiety.

I really do understand the challenges and mindset of a smoker, I’ve been there even though it was a very long time ago. I’ve had two children without medical pain control. I’ve used pain control and mindfulness to manage years of chronic arthritis. I’ve learnt to manage my weight. I survived and thrived a divorce. I’ve relocated three times. Enjoyed being a single mother. I’m now in a new relationship and settled in Swindon, Wiltshire.

Life is constantly changing and evolving we can’t always manage what happens around us but we are able to learn valuable techniques, new life skills to help us make better choices. We can develop new behaviours and more empowering ways of thinking. Our thought patterns really can be the key to our making better lifestyle choices. 

I’d love to share these methods with you so you too can live the life you really want.
