Maria Richards


Qualified and comprehensively insured Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapist.
Due to physical relocation, I now work more exclusively online which means that there are no barriers geographical for clients. Even if a busy life-style has prevented you in the past from seeking out therapy due to time and travel constraints. This is an opportunity to get the guidance you need from the comfort of your own home or office space. Or even if travel is something that is a constant for you, in any place either in the UK or the world. All you need is a PC, MAC, Laptop, or stable tablet. With a good broadband connection.
I offer therapy to adult men and women on a range of issues which are causing stress, anxiety or panic. Poor sleep, low mood or depression.
And you may be looking for ways to help in growing your confidence be that in work or in social situations.
I am also a certified Smoking Cessation specialist. And although it is still possible to see me at my venue in London, (stop smoking only), there is the potential for you to stop that smoking through on-line therapy.
And what about your emotional needs? As part of your therapy, reviewing your basic human needs if they aren’t being met can shine a light on further improvements which may lead to you growing towards a happier and fulfilling life.
I use the National Institute of Clinical Excellence* outcome measurements, so we can record and track your improvements as therapy progresses.
Methods from a wide range of practices, picked uniquely to suit your needs include: ‘Hypnosis and the language Science of Wordweaving™. Positive Psychology, Psychology, Evolutionary Psychology, Cognitive Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and Transactional Analysis. Eye Movement
Integration, Emotional Freedom Therapy and the Rewind technique for trauma and phobias and Lifting Depression.

I am specifically trained in The Simmons Method™ specialising how to guide you to stop the smoking.

Ethical and responsible: with client welfare in mind.
In the year 2000 the House of Lords produced a report which integrated a section on Complementary and Alternative Medicines. The then Princes Foundation for Integrated Health set up the Council of National Health Care (CNHC). This is a voluntary regulatory body which oversees the quality of practitioners to protect the public. As a practitioner, Maria Richards is a registered member of this organisation.
The program to register complementary and alternative practitioners was supported by the King’s Fund and Department of Health.
