Kensington Hypnosis

Anne Thornton Patterson

I am an experienced medical & clinical hypnotherapist offering a Free Initial Consultation. I have been helping people for over 20 years, to become more confident, manage their stress levels to feel calmer and more relaxed.

I often get asked to help with public speaking fears, phobias of all kinds, relationships and sexuality. I have a keen interest for helping with trichotillomania (hair pulling, eyebrow and eyelash pulling) in adults and children.

I run a busy hypnotherapy practice in Kensington and would delighted to help you too with weight loss, self esteem issues, anxiety and worry, memory and recall, motivation and procrastination, goal setting and career progression.

My approach is to help empower you and to release any issues you have been carrying from your past.

Published Trichotillomania Author

Having worked with many individuals affected by TTM, I realised that not everyone will be at the stage of seeking help with this affliction. So, as a way to reach and help those who are not ready to take the first steps with me, I published a book to help people deal with the issues related to trichotillomania on their own.  It is currently rated 5 stars on Amazon and you can email me directly to order your copy –


Strategies for Coping With Trichotillomania
