Hypnotherapy in Cheltenham with Collette Tupling

About Your Cheltenham Hypnotherapist...

Collette Tupling Ba(hons) DHP HPD MNCH (Lic.)

Hypnotherapist Collette Tupling - Hypnotherapy in CheltenhamI am a solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist based in Cheltenham and covering the North of Gloucestershire including Stroud.

I think I was always destined to be a psychotherapist. I have always been interested in people and the welfare of others. Coupled with my curiosity and desire to understand how those wonderful minds of ours work and what impacts on our behaviour and ultimately our health. I read constantly and what I find so exciting is how we now have all the scientific evidence and research at our fingertips to show how stress and anxiety really do affect us. We can truly begin to look at our behaviours and decide if they are really making us happy and allowing us to achieve our greatest potential.

Having worked for over 15 years in a high profile corporate sales environment, I became increasingly aware of the impact of stress and anxiety on my colleagues/peers (and me!). The money was great but driving over 25,000 miles a year and working on laptops to deadlines certainly didn’t make for a happy Collette. In 2007 I decided to opt out of this environment and put my interpersonal skills to better use in this fast moving and sometimes unforgiving modern world. I achieve success through assisting people to start working to live and not just living to work!

I feel passionately that we all deserve to be happy, motivated, confident and in control of our lives. We take for granted the power of waking up from a good nights sleep and feeling energised and empowered for the day ahead.

Since qualification I have quickly developed a strong client base with notable successes in anxiety related issues, improving sleep quality, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, addressing eating disorders , weight-management issues and increasing self confidence and self esteem.

My approach is positive, friendly and empowers you to address the issues that worry you and to take control of these issues on a permanent not short-term basis.

I will explain how your mind works, why it creates the behaviours it does and how you can harness and control it to improve the quality of your life. I am committed and passionate to working with you in developing an individual, tailored treatment plan, which is unique to you.

I have brought with me the high professional standards I have acquired from corporate life into this therapeutic profession. I am committed to providing therapy that works for you. I undertake that I will:

  • Listen to you, treating your ideas and issues seriously and treating you with dignity and respect
  • Build up a relationship of trust with you. I promise that everything you say will remain in the strictest confidence
  • Work with you to achieve the best possible results in the shortest possible time
  • Take your feedback seriously – I aim to base all our treatments on evidence, so if something is not working for you we will change it
  • Not pursue unnecessary length of treatment - this is a therapeutic partnership after all!
  • Teach you how to help yourself. My aim is to make you independent, so I will give you tools and techniques to help you help yourself and you will leave our time together with the resources to help you in your future life

The hypnotherapy I use utilises hypnosis and other psychotherapy techniques such as Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), and cognitive behavioural approaches including Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). A combination of these therapies allows us to access the conscious and subconscious parts of our mind. This enables us to gain the fresh attitudes and new ways of thinking required to change not only how we feel about ourselves but also our response to life.

The therapy focuses on your STRENGTHS and RESOURCES enabling you to form a vision of what you want rather than what you don’t want. You can then look forward to a more POSITIVE future where you are more IN CONTROL of your thoughts, feelings and actions.


I trained at The Clifton Practice Bristol, a Centre of Excellence for Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy in the UK. The practice is known as the leading accredited school for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.

I regularly access continuing professional development (CPD) and supervision to ensure my knowledge and skills are kept up to date with the latest scientific and therapeutic developments.


I was awarded both the Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy (DHP) and the Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD), The HPD is independently accredited by NCFE and equivalent to NQF Level 4. The course is accredited by:

  • The Hypnotherapy Society
  • The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH)
  • The National Council of Psychotherapy (NCP)
  • The Association for Professional Hypnosis & Psychotherapy (APHP)

I read my university degree in Economics and have a number of other qualifications relating to over 15 years of working for Blue Chip FMCG companies.

Member Organisations

Below are the reputable and accredited organisations of which I am a member:

  • Fully insured member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy, one of the main professional bodies for hypnotherapy in the UK. I am full (Licentiate) member of the NCH and I am registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)
  • Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapists (AfSFH) a support organisation set up to increase the awareness of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and its associated benefits

I am fully insured for working from home, on premises and in client’s homes. This is a professional requirement, but in fact the cost of insurance for hypnotherapists is exceedingly low, as hypnotherapy is commonly regarded so safe.

Code of Conduct

I work to a strict professional code of conduct and ethics that are set out by the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH).


The code I work with protects the client and their personal information from becoming public knowledge and safe guards their interest in expressing themselves without fear of reprisals from a third party. The exceptions to this are if I feel the client is endangering themselves or potentially others and may break the law.


I offer hypnotherapy in Gloucestershire at a friendly clinic in the centre of Cheltenham. It is a warm, friendly, professional environment and ensures confidentiality is maintained at all times. For details of appointment times and costs, please view my hypnotherapy appointments and fees pages.
