Hi, I am Vaiva Jakimaviciene, B.Sc (Hons) DipHyp DNLP GQHP GHReg MHS CRSST-reg CHNC-reg. I am a fully qualified and nationally accredited clinical hypnotherapist. I earned my practitioner diploma in clinical hypnotherapy and a diploma in NLP (Endorsed by ‘The Professional Guild of NLP’) after attending a face to face training course approved by the British Psychological Society Learning Centre for the purposes of Continual Professional Development (CPD). I am a certified hypnotherapy smoking cessation and weight loss specialist and have full professional liability insurance and a CRB check.
I have almost 10 years’ experience working in the pharmaceutical industry. It was an environment where the emphasis was highly placed on taking pills, tablets, powders, injections, lotions and such to help alleviate physical and mental issues.
During that time, I became very interested in the mind-body connection and the mind’s ability to influence the body. I read a number of classic and modern books on the subject of clinical and medical hypnosis, neuro-linguistic programming, psycho-cybernetics, Ericksonian approaches, mindfulness and goal achievement and find the topic of hypnosis, hypnotherapy and NLP fascinating to this day, hence becoming a registered and accredited professional hypnotherapist to help others to discover the amazing power of their mind.
I am listed in the largest professional registering organisation for practising clinical hypnotherapists in the UK, the General Hypnotherapy Register. The organisation allows you to check whether a practicing hypnotherapist is appropriately qualified and have undertaken the necessary theory and practice training of hypnotherapy.
As per the strict guidelines of The General Hypnotherapy Standards Council, I attend clinical supervision with a highly qualified, clinical hypnotherapy master practitioner and stay upto date with the CPD to ensure safe and effective practice.
