My unique and speedy solution to your problem

Welcome to Dawn Rowley Hypnotherapy.

The fact that you are here on my site indicates that something is not quite right in your life, or that you have some sort of problem.  Perhaps you feel that you are stuck in a rut, doing the same old thing over and over again.  Or it may be that you have a habit or compulsion that you would like to be free of?   Maybe you are plagued with unpleasant feelings, such as fear, anxiety, self-doubt, guilt or loss?  If willpower, self-talk, self-help books, medication, or talking therapies, haven’t worked for you, or don’t appeal to you, then look no further.

The service I offer is really unique in that I mix together a number of pretty amazing, rapid, cutting edge, therapies and techniques (including Hypnotherapy, EMDR, NLP, BWRT, Symbolism, Kinetic Shift and Meridian Tapping) to bring about a very rapid change at an unconscious level.  I will swap the old problem pattern of behaviour for a much more desirable pattern of behaviour, and get you truly focused on what you really want.   The new behaviour will be as instinctive as breathing, and you’ll find yourself moving steadily towards your goals.

Most of my clients require between 2 and 4 sessions, for a huge change in the way they behave or think.  Sometimes just one session can be enough to bring about the change desired.  I endeavour to help you achieve your goal in the shortest time possible, so that you become the very best version of you in the fastest time possible.  Read some of the many positive testimonials for Dawn Rowley Hypnotherapy, then get the ball rolling and give me a call?

About Dawn Rowley

I first became fascinated by hypnosis in 2001, when I decided to try hypnotherapy to kick my 60-a-day smoking habit.  I walked away from that hypnosis session with absolutely NO desire to smoke ever again.  This experience impacted positively on many areas of my life, and made such an impression on me that I decided to train as a hypnotherapist.  Since then, I have continued my personal journey with hypnotherapy: overcoming PTSD arising from childhood traumas; social anxiety; and a phobia of spiders.  I continue to research and learn new skills and I am dedicated to helping others find their path to freedom.  There is nothing that gives me more satisfaction than the way a clients face lights up when they realise they have achieved the change they wanted.


Everyone has a different idea of what hypnosis is.  Some of my clients think they will be in a very relaxed state, some think they will be asleep, and others have absolutely no idea what to expect.  Hypnosis is NOT a state of eyes close and therefore often I will work with clients whilst their eyes are wide open and they are perfectly able to talk to me.

You can think of your mind as having two parts, the ‘subconscious’ part and the ‘conscious’ part. The subconscious part of your mind can be likened to a 9-year old child: imaginative; emotional; and (crucially) illogical. It chooses to do something, or not to do something, either to make you happy or to protect you in some way (although to your logical conscious mind this might not be clear to you).

The conscious mind on the other hand, is critical and logical, and weighs everything up. I am sure that from time to time you do something that later you regret and then ask yourself “Why did I do that?” The answer is simple, your subconscious, emotional mind had taken over. Unwanted habits and behaviours are choices made by that child-like subconscious mind,  It does not stop to weigh up the consequences, it just acts – just like a child would. When you later ask yourself “Why did I do that?” your conscious mind has kicked back in and is searching desperately for an explanation.

Hypnosis allows us to bypass the logical conscious mind and communicate directly with that child-like subconscious mind, so that we can ask it to behave in a different way that is more beneficial to you.

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

A form of eye movement therapy, and a highly effective and speedy way of resolving traumas.  Originally developed by Francine Shapiro in 1987 for the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), it has since been used to effectively treat many other disorders. I will ask you to follow my fingers, as I guide you through a series of eye movements.  During the session you might experience: physical sensations; changes in thoughts and internal dialogue; and/or fluctuating feelings as we process your trauma, or conflict.  This can leading to dramatic changes in the way you think and feel.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP was developed in the 1970’s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder.  It’s is the science of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce the results they do. By gaining insights into how we do the things we do well, we can apply these methodologies to the things that we don’t do well to get better results.

Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT)

This is a very unique therapy developed by Terence Watts which makes changes at the most ancient part of the human brain – the Reptilian Brain.  The Reptilian brain, responsible for our survival, can override our capacity to behave rationally.  This is why we might find ourselves going into the fight, flight or freeze responses even when we know logically we are not really under threat.  For example if a child sees her mother scream in fear at the sight of a spider, her brain might then assume that all spiders are dangerous and invoke fear and panic each time a spider is encountered.   It is not necessary to understand what caused a problem for BWRT to work, and it can dissolve issues really quickly.


A super fast, and effective way of changing behaviour and thought patterns, by using subconsious symbols.  I use a number of easy and fun techniques which have been developed by leading figures in the hypnotic field.

Kinetic Shift

A really innovative way to extract negative feelings and replace them with positive feelings.  Developed by Karl Smith, founder of the UK Hypnosis Academy, and author of the book ‘No D in PTSD’.

Meridian Tapping (TFT, EFT & Faster EFT)

Dr Roger Callahan developed a technique called Thought Field Therapy (TFT) which involves tapping on meridian points in a prescribed order whilst focusing on an unwanted feeling, thought or sensation.  It is believed that this facilitates the healing process that allows the issue to dissipate.  Gary Craig later developed this energy therapy further with his Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) which involves tapping on the same sequence of meridian points regardless of the problem.  I often introduce clients to these techniques as they are both easy to learn, and self-administer.  They can be very effective in dissolving cravings, and feelings of anger, fear, panic, and anxiety.
