SUZANNE GARDNER-CUTHBERT, GQHP
I am a Complementary Therapist, Specialing in Stress Management, EFT Tapping, Pregnancy Emotional Issues and Hypnobirthing.
I first became interested in Complementary Therapies, when suffering with an anxiety disorder, around 20 years ago. I began to read all that I could on different subjects such as nutrition, aromatherapy, herbs, exercise and mind management techniques, as I wanted to do all that I could to feel better again. After overcoming anxiety, I was left with a keen interest in Complementary Therapies.
I decided that for the birth of my third child in 2005, that I would like to have my son at home instead of hospital. I was not wanting to use any drugs for pain relief, if I didn't have too, and wanted a more natural birth.
Learning all that I could about natural birth, is when I discovered the benefits of relaxation, visualisation and hypnosis.
Unfortunately, I didn't experience a normal labour, and therefore was not able to have a home birth as planned. However, I was still able to use, and benefit from the techniques that I had learnt. Up until the arrival of my son, I worked 12 years for local government and held numerous roles during this time.
At the beginning of 2007, I began training in Complementary Therapies, first training in Clinical Hypnotherapy, and over the years, I have achieved the following qualifications
- Diploma - Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy
- Diploma - NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)
- EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Certificate, AAMET, Practitioner Level 2
- Certificate of Competence in Stress Managment
- Certified Hypnotic Birthing Practitioner Qualification (CHBP)
At the end of 2007, I formed the business Modern Day Holistic Therapies, based in Brough, East Yorkshire, later changing the name to Suzanne Gardner-Cuthbert Hypnotherapy. I am now based in Beverley, East Yorkshire.
I am registered with the GHR (General Hypnotherapy Register) and as an easibirthing® Practitioner.
