About Gill Ruffles

Gill Ruffles

I am a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner, trained in Hypnotherapy, NLP, life coaching and Time Line Therapy. I am a registered member of CNHC* and the NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy).

As a committed professional, I am continually updating and consolidating my skills through research and training. My initial training was in Ericksonian Hypnosis, NLP and the Lightning Process with Phil Parker, one of the country's leading pioneers in self development. I was one of the first practitioners of the Lightning Process in the country, and worked as a Lightning Process practitioner and examiner between 2005-2010. I have worked as a coach and examiner on the ECHM training courses, and as a trainer and supervisor of newly-qualified practitioners. I have done further training in Hypnotherapy with Tom Nicoli, ‘Timeline Therapy’ and ‘Emotional Clarity’ with Johnny Lovell, 'Human Givens' with Joe Griffin, 'Wordweaving' with Trevor Silvestor and regular training with the NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy).

As well as working with adults, I also specialise in working with young people. I run short courses at the University of Bath, working with students and trainees. I have extensive experience working with teenagers: before training as hypnotherapist, I taught in secondary schools for over 25 years, in both academic and pastoral roles. My aim as a teacher was to develop in students the skills and confidence they needed to open their doors to the future and enable the choices they wanted in their lives. My aims are still the same, but now through my work as a hypnotherapist and trainer.



* ‘CNHC Registered’, means that the Hypnotherapist has followed, and successfully completed, a high quality course in hypnotherapy to national occupational standards, and is bound by a professional code of conduct, ethics and practice.
