Gillian Wingard – Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist


I’m Gillian Wingard. For 25 years I worked in the fast-paced, continually-changing corporate world of sales and recruitment as a senior manager. I witnessed first-hand how stress and anxiety in such a pressure-cooker environment affects people at all levels. That’s why I started Behavioral Freedom.

That notwithstanding, I have also struggled personally with workplace stress and anxiety, how it feels and how to effectively treat it and my life experiences make me the perfect person to work with you to relieve whatever issues are stopping you from living a full, happy and worry-free life.

I studied Hypnotherapy and specifically Hypno-CBT, the combined use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnosis at the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy and the course is centred fundamentally on modern psychological approaches.

By using such an effective and proven combination of therapies, Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) is widely believed to be the treatment of choice for a growing number of conditions treated on the NHS over the next five years.

I am honest, easy to talk to and approachable. I have suffered with panic attacks, stress and anxiety myself and I sought hypnotherapy which I found both amazingly effective and profoundly life changing. Hypnotherapy opened up my mind and the way I thought and approached the aspects of my life that were causing me concern. I understand how the thought processes that go on inside your head can be adapted and amended to take a different journey, one of freedom of thought and behaviour.

I have the skills to work with different types of people, the life experience to understand what individuals may be feeling from the effects of stress and anxiety and an overwhelming desire to help people become free from unwanted behaviours.

I will equip you with the tools you need to positively and permanently change your behaviour using evidence-based Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH).

• Completely remove anxiety, tension and stress from your life
• Dramatically increase your confidence and self-esteem
• Become more assertive and independent
• Change or control your unwanted habits
• Improve your personal sales performance
• Increase your creativity and self-expression
• Move forward, remove your barriers and be who YOU want to be
