What is 


Hypnotherapy is complementary verbalising technique used to initialise positive changes in our behaviour, feelings and thoughts. Hypnotherapy is a comfortable, safe therapy and is considered to be a highly liberating experience, beneficial for both mind and body.

I practice a suggestion, analytical AND SOLUTION BASED hypnotherapy DEPENDENT ON THE CLIENTS NEEDS to establish positive changes and bring permanent resolve within THEIR  lives. After an in depth consultation to establish the clients requirements and goals the hypnotherapist induces the client into a deep state of relaxation/trance where upon the hypnotherapist can begin to facilitate the change work with the subconscious mind to achieve the desired outcome.

Clients of all ages are seen with a host of varying issues, including some of the following:

YES, this is where most people get the wrong impression about hypnotherapy and think about ‘stage hypnosis, where suggestions are used on certain personality types for the use of entertainment purposes. These are based around mind control and using manipulation to perform silly or unnatural acts, “acts” being the key word here; under hypnosis, you, the client are always in control, even during the deepest trance you can not be made to say or do something that you do not agree with. It is worth remembering that at any time during a session a client has the ability to come out of trance by themselves, should the necessity arise.

NO, You will not be asleep, you will be in the deepest form of relaxation a person can be before entering sleep mode. Clients recall therapy sessions differently, some remembering all or parts that have been said during the session. Which ever way the recall, the therapy will have reached the subconscious mind to facilitate the desired change.
YES, the vast majority of people can be hypnotised, with the exception of those under the influence of drugs and alcohol, or do not have the ability to hold concentration for a certain degree.
SUCCESS is down to the individual, If you are ready to make a positive change to your life then Sunrise Hypnotherapy Practice has the skills and expertise to help facilitate that change;NB its worth remembering due to the complexities of the mind and body, no therapist whatever field they practice in can guarantee complete success for every client.

I also specialise in


As a life coach my aim is to support, guide, empower and motivate my clients to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals.

These can include excelling in the workplace, becoming fulfilled and happier within yourself, at home and in relationships. Improving and balancing life by exploring your potential, and achieving your goals.

Life coaches provide clients with the tools to confidently face difficult situations, to push past negative or emotional barriers by using various psychological models and techniques. Life coaching is about objectivity, structure and empowerment, it’s not about telling you what you should do, offering advice, opinions or judgment.

The fundamental objective to life coaching is to motivate and support by gently encouraging you to explore how to make positive and lasting changes within your life.

Clients are seen weekly over a set time frame with agreed periodic reviews.

Being Subjective

We all have different perspectives of the world, some perspectives are restrictive and can stop a person becoming who they want to be i.e “I’m not good enough” Who says? And why?



Everyone has the capability to adjust personal limits of their own perspective.With the help of life coaching, anyone can learn to open and expand their mind if they wish i.e. “Yes, you can” think more about “doing” and less about “not doing”.


The fundamental difference between an instructor and a guide is that an instructor shows a person exactly what to do, whereas a guide provides the tools and support a person requires do something for themselves. Therefore a life coach is a guide i.e. “let’s explore and see would could happen if you took a different approach to a situation”

What happens during a session?

Life coaching sessions will typically last about 55 minutes.

  • During our regular session, I will ask you a number of questions i.e
  • What do you want to get out of life?
  • What areas of your are you unhappy with?
  • Where would you like to see yourself going in the future?
  • What can you do to make change happen?
  • It’s important to remember a life coach works with you it’s up to you to challenge, set and reflect upon certain goals and
  • Ideas in order to help you move forward in life.
  • Sessions are confidential.

Commitment and reflective homework is required to ensure best results.

“I had been feeling very anxious and nervous about what was happening in my life Genevieve made me feel totally calm and relaxed in my sessions. Her tone of voice is lovely and the techniques she has shown me will continue to help me going forward in my life. I would recommend Genevieve to anyone looking for a Hypnotherapist”

Mia Steed | Powys

” I went to see Genevieve at Sunrise Hypnotherapy after being recommended by a family member. I was looking for help with relaxation and anxiety during pregnancy. Genevieve also made me a personal recording to listen to which I did up until the birth. During my labour I remained calm and in control whilst giving birth easily and naturally to my beautiful baby son. thank you.”


“I can’t wait for the next session, I really enjoy it.”

Vera | Glos

“It’s just like being transported to a magical place, where all OF your worries and cares are taken away”

Sybil | Cheltenham

“The therapy makes me feel relaxed but at the same time refreshed”

E.WB | Glos

“Thank you for my lovely treatment last week, I slept incredibly well that night. It was as though somebody had switched off my brain so I did not have any unwanted dreams – which was great! then over the weekend I felt as though I had been given a massage as even my body felt relaxed too! strangely though when I know I would be normally be really stressing about the issues I had presented with I seem to be taking things in my stride and not allowing worries get the better of me. I would certainly recommend Genevieve to all of my friend.”

Rachel | Cheltenham

“I arrived in frankly a “manic” and anxiety filled place. My mind was racing at 100 mph with flitting disjointed thoughts. My body clenched and fidgety. i knew I retained control while Genevieve helped my body completely relax and mind slow down. Needless to say the transformation was enormous and tremendous, so much that others noticed the change in me too! I also gained “hope” hope that I can overcome my anxiety and stress. I continue to recommend “Mind Massage” to other to regain control and peace.”

Helen | Cheltenham

“Great news, I saw a big black spider last night that a few days ago I would have ran a mile from, I managed to put a glass over it and slide a card underneath then pick it up without any fuss to then let it go outside. I even had a picture taken of me kissing the glass with the spider in it!!! I’m so chuffed”

Marion | Gloucestershire

“Since attending my sessions I feel so much more relaxed around dogs, this treatment has helped my enormously with my phobia.Walking in the country and canal side will be more relaxing and struggle free. I cant believe that I actually make an effort to to get close to dogs whenever I possibly can. A life changer and I have Genevieve to thank for that..”

Nicky | Cheltenham

“I saw Genevieve for help with fear of public speaking and it was brilliant! Each session was amazingly relaxing and left me feeling both completely calm, energized and empowered. My Sessions worked fantastically well, I was able to speak publicly while feeling calm and in control and generally more confident for a long time afterwards. I found my sessions so beneficial that hypnotherapy for relaxation will now form part of my ongoing well being routine.”

R | Cheltenham

“BWRT® has literally changed my personal world, at first i thought i was too good to be true, however after just a few sessions I feel on top of the world”


“Wow a 30 year phobia gone in 40 minutes, BWRT® is astonishing”

M | Glos

“i must confess i have had several other therapies to try and help overcome sudden trauma, however nothing really seemed to shift the way i felt until I discovered BWRT. I had read an article in the Daily Mail and looked up BWRT®. this led to me to Genevieve and I am so glad it did. Genevieve made me feel at ease straight away, she explained in easy terms how the therapy gets to work on the neural pathways and how we work together to make this change, and we did! I am so grateful to have met such a wonderful and caring therapist, thank you”

T.S | Glos

“I have had a stressful time with one thing and another, and then I lost my mother. I was finding it hard to relax and my sleep was disturbed leaving me feeling tired and very low. I Spoke to Genevieve about Hypnotherapy as I knew very little about it, She explained in a very clear and professional way what the process involves. I arranged to have a few therapy sessions. Her voice has a lovely calming tone and I found the whole experience incredibly relaxing and beneficial, I was able to completely let go and be taken on a wonderful journey.

After the the sessions I felt safe, calm and rested, and able to see things with a more positive outlook. Genevieve recorded a CD for me to listen to, tor help with my sleep pattern, I only remember hearing the first ten minutes of the CD as I drift off into a deep sleep and I am only waking once in the night instead of four or five times! I would highly recommend Genevieve for anyone looking for a Hypnotherapist, I will continue to have sessions purely for the relaxation element and look forward to returning soon”.

BrainWorking Recursive Therapy

    BWRT ®

BWRT® is a cutting edge therapy for the twenty-first century. ‘BWRT® stands for ‘BrainWorking Recursive Therapy, created by one of the UK’s leading therapists and trainers, It’s a ‘content-free’ process that doesn’t rely on a therapist saying the right things or discovering private information or personal secrets should the client not want to divulge such information In fact, all the therapist needs to know is what the client wants to be able to do, or to be able to stop doing.

Personal problems, fears, anxieties, even severe difficulties that have lasted for years can dissipate quickly and, and often some issues in just a single session when working with a professionally registered BWRT® Practitioner. In a session, the client is guided to use their just their own thoughts – in a special way to create a totally natural change that comes from within the client rather than from something the therapist says or does.

All the work is done in a completely ‘awake state’ and doesn’t use hypnosis – it’s completely logical, practical and down-to-earth, and all it needs to be successful is for the client to want something in their life to be different. Only registered Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT and you can search the practitioners listing to find someone near you at

As a practitioner I have had the opportunity as speak at the BWRT World Congress, held in May 2018, on the fascinating subject of phobias.
