Welcome to the course

Monica Black
Monica Black

My journey started back in January 2000 which was when I left a very stressful life in the City of London. 

I am now a highly experienced Master Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP, EMDR & NNRT Practitioner, Coach, Author of My Little Book of Helpfulness, Trainer, Tutor at the Life Practice Academy, Educator and Media Commentator. I feel that having worked in the City of London makes me exceptionally well qualified to help those who are dealing with all the Anxiety, Stress, Strains and everything else that seems to be thrown at us to bring us down in this modern day living.

I have a very pro-active press profile, writing and contributing to leading features on health and lifestyle across national newspapers, magazines and websites as well as appearing on the airwaves. These include BBC Radio 4, English Language Spanish Radio for the Costa del Sol, The Sunday Times, The Daily Mail, The Express, The Observer, The Telegraph, Stella magazine, The Mirror, You Magazine, Metro, Red and Woman & Home to name but a few.

Using my “toolbox” of Clinical Hypnotherapy, NLP, NNRT, Mindfulness and Coaching, I have successfully helped many people overcome all kinds of emotional and physical conditions, thus enabling them to take control of their life and become the person they’ve dreamed of being. 

I am also associated with the National Eczema Society helping people take control of both the physical and psychological effects of their skin conditions.

I practice in London, W1 and on-line, under the names of Hampstead Hypnotherapy and Monica Black Life Coach

I am a member of the GHR, GHSC, CNHC, Royal Society of Medicine. and a Fellow of the ACCPH.
