Prunella Seed MSc., MAR, GHQP, IAHP
Hypnotherapy has been my focus since 2008 when I trained with the psychologist Dr Keith Hearn. I first found my way to hypnotherapy in my desire to assist my clients reach their potential for health and healing. My expertise and experience are based on formal qualifications and commitment to Continued Professional Development (CPD). Many of my qualifications are registered in my married name, details available on request.
I have now retired as a podiatrist (working first for NHS and then in a private clinic). While working as a podiatrist I discovered reflexology - which was less well known in the 1980’s - and thoroughly enjoyed working with this modality. I have retained my reflexology qualifications, with 30+ years of experience, I find it helps clients connect to their bodies in a relaxing and beneficial way. My knowledge of feet, bio-mechanics and gait analysis remains with me, but I may only make suggestions rather than give definitive advice. Hypnosis is the art of suggestion, so this suits me well.

Diploma to Teach Meditation
I studied for an MSc in Integrated Healthcare, reflecting my passion for the possibility of combining holistic and allopathic medicine.

I update my skill base with continuous professional development (CPD) at various lectures and workshops.
My first work was in a vitally exciting new sub-fertility clinic at Kings College Hospital in London in 1976. The importance of the mind-body connection became evident and hypnotherapy was a natural progression. I am an Easibirthing ® practitioner for sub-fertility.
I regularly attend Masterclasses and workshops on a variety of approaches within mind-body medicine, pain management, self-care, etc. Hypnosis can be a wonderful direct route to your wellbeing, finding the root cause and adjusting the pathways of your mind to positivity and wellbeing.
Reiki Master Teacher
Energy work takes various forms. In the 1990's I studied Reiki, becoming a Master Teacher Level Reiki Practitioner, honouring the Usui method of training. I rarely offer Reiki today, but it remains part of my journey. The mind-body connection and work with the mental approach to therapeutics enhances my clinical practice.
I am a mother of two adult children and enjoy a work/life balance that includes meditation, yoga and swimming.
