Introducing Anna Yates

Psychotherapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner
Life Coach, Virtual Gastric Band Therapist, Weight Management and Quit Smoking Specialist

"I have spent many years living and working in the Middle East since 1977, in Dubai, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Iran and am married with four wonderful children and three adorable grandchildren.

Since first embarking on my therapy training in 2006, I have been totally passionate about how we can use the power of our subconscious to get the life we truly want.

I am delighted and proud to be given the opportunity to put my skills to good use and help my clients to improve their quality and enjoyment of life.

Believing in the importance of continually updating my skills, I have now qualified as a Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming and Life Coach with the Blackford Centre, UK.

Please take a look through the other pages of my website for more indepth information on the therapies I offer, with relevant testimonials.

I work in a private and confidential environment, offering solutions to a wide range of issues, specialising in smoking, weight management and stress and sleep related issues. I can also help with confidence building, motivation, positive thinking and self esteem! I prefer to take a holistic approach, looking at all aspects of a client's life style, to seek the solution to their issues.

Many of the things that hold us back are purely in the mind and a combination of hypnosis, NLP and CBT is very often all that is required to set yourself free from self-limiting beliefs and those negative voices in your head!

I view therapy and life coaching as a journey which we will undertake together and I will be there every step of the way to ensure you not only enjoy the trip but successfully reach your destination feeling positive, confident and empowered to make your life successful and fun!

"There is an old saying: 'a problem shared is a problem halved'. If you are looking for a safe, comfortable, confidential place to share your problems, I am here to listen and help you find the answers you are looking for".

For testimonials from past clients please see relevant pages.
