Hi, I'm Amanda. I've been working as an NHS dentist for 32 years and have run my own practice for 25 years. I have gained much experience working with people to help alleviate their anxiety in the dental setting.


I came to hypnotherapy almost by accident, following a bereavement. I wanted to help my co-workers with our joint loss. 


I have gained so much understanding of how we tick and can relate behaviours to myself and see it so easily in others. I find it rewarding working with clients, helping them to make such an obvious positive difference in their lives.

Hypnotherapy has taught me how to enjoy life more, and to find joy and positives in so many things around me. I have met some really wonderful and truly inspiring people during my training. I have helped my grieving colleagues to cope better and feel proud of that.


Hypnotherapy has reignited my excitement of learning and studying in a field that is so rewarding. It is a privilege to be able to help people to become the best version of themselves. 

I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and as such I am bound by a strict Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

I am fully registered and insured to work with both adults and children and hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

I attend regular CPD courses and professional supervision to ensure that my skills and knowledge remain up to date with current Psychological and Neuroscientific research.

Hello I’m Tabitha 👋 
I qualified as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist in 2019. At the time I was practicing as a Forensic Occupational Therapist working with patients with acquired brain injuries. I went traveling to Canada after the pandemic and returned home last year due to becoming ill.  At the start of this health journey my confidence was shattered, and my anxiety was through the roof. I couldn't continue this way, so I moved back home in September 2023. I referred myself for CBT but had to wait 6 weeks for a 30 minute phone call appointment. So I turned to Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (from my Amanda) and my life changed. I then remembered why I had studied it in the first place.
It changed my perspective on my health, it allowed me to see the positives in my life and I’ve now found my purpose. I have joined Best Self Solution Focused Hypnotherapy to offer online 1:1 hypnotherapy sessions, but also to start groups at a discounted rate. During the groups I will teach tools and techniques that increase resilience, reduce anxiety and imporve overall well-being.
My aim is to empower people to become the best versions of themselves, and to achieve whatever it is they want to achieve in life.
