Are you looking for hypnotherapy to feel better about yourself?

I am a Trauma Therapist with over 19 years experience.  I offer hypnotherapy as well as lots of other therapies to help you with your mental health. I offer a Tailor Made Therapy Programme which can help you overcome all forms of mental health issues, stress and anxiety, fears or phobia. I use a combination of Hypnotherapy, Inner Child Therapy, EMDR, PTSD therapy and counselling specialising in PTSD and trauma work. This process can TOTALLY RESOLVE the CAUSE of unconscious anxieties leaving you free from your symptoms for life! Low cost, fast results, simple and life changing. I look forward to helping you find the right solution to your problems. Fareham hypnotherapy is available at The Spirit Within.

We all are very busy and stressed, trying to juggle our lives around work, children, partners and parents and sometimes you lose the ability to find the time to have a laugh and really enjoy yourself. What is it you want out of life? Are you living the life you want? Or is your mind like a monkey in a tree, jumping from branch to branch? We call this “monkey chatter”. Your mind jumping from thought to thought and trying to remember all the things you need to do. Exhausting isn’t it?

With clinical hypnotherapy we will work together to help you achieve your goals and aspirations and find the real you that you may be lost a long time ago. Now, wouldn’t that make you feel happier? We will work at your pace. Nothing is rushed and you are in a safe and nurturing space. Start to feel better today with hypnotherapy, what are you waiting for?

Here is a video about the truth of hypnosis.  Any questions please call me.

Deborah Baxter Hypnotherapist - Hypnotherapy in Fareham and Southampton

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis has long been associated with the strange and mysterious, with sideshows and faith healers. But the truth is that hypnosis is not the least bit mysterious or supernatural. In fact you have been in an hypnotic state literally thousands of times. You did not notice it because it is a natural state of mind.

What to expect

You will not be unconscious. I will guide you into hypnotherapy using a gentle relaxing language. You will experience the floating state between sleep and awakeness, just like when you are drifting off to sleep. You are in control at all times. Afterwards, you may feel extremely relaxed but, you will be aware of what you are doing and you will be able to drive home or go back to work.

How does it work?

Everything you have ever learned is stored in your subconscious. Hypnotherapy aims to tap into the subconscious to re-programme patterns of behaviour within the mind, enabling irrational fears, phobias, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome. Making you stronger and more confident than you have ever felt before.

What can be treated?

In recent years hypnotherapy has become accepted as part of the evolution of our health care system. If you are seeking treatment for yourself in a specific problem area – such as smoking, weight loss, stress, depression or lack of self-esteem then hypnotherapy can help with all of these and much more.

How many sessions are needed?

This depends on several factors. How long you have had your issue, how quickly you respond to therapy and how often you come for therapy. On the initial consultation I will be able to advise you on how many sessions I think you are likely to need. However, unlike counselling we are looking at weeks rather than years. You can change your life in as little as 10 weeks!

Hypnotherapy can help you release your stress and anxiety and find the right solution to your problem


Phobias of all kinds lend themselves well to hypnotherapy, and anyone suffering from panic attacks or obsessive compulsive behaviour, OCD and stress-related problems like insomnia, or depression may benefit. Conditions exacerbated by tension, such as irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, crohns, psoriasis and eczema, and excessive sweating, respond well, and even tinnitus can be treated by these techniques.

I highly recommend this lady…. I had every trust in Deborah from the moment I heard her voice. … It was nothing like you see on these TV shows, nothing wacky or weird about it. I found it to be deeply relaxing, my sessions with Deborah have changed my life, my friends all noticed the difference in me. …. My confidence and self-esteem has been restored and the emotional baggage I had been carrying all my life disappeared completely, its great to be free of all that.
