Further Information

Diana Clift MA(Oxon), M.Phil, AIPTI, D,Hyp, PDCHyp, PDCBHyp, MBSCH
Hypnotherapy Godalming, Surrey

I originally trained in Biochemistry at Oxford University, followed by research in Neurochemistry at the Institute of Psychiatry in London.  I have worked for many years as a massage therapist and also as a musical entertainer/therapist in nursing homes.  I took up hypnotherapy in 2005 and trained at the London College of Clinical Hypnosis.  I have further qualifications in Practitioner Studies, Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy and in the ‘virtual gastric band’ technique and am a full member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis.  I am a ‘solution-focussed’ therapist.  I work on the assumption that the future doesn’t have to be the same as the past:  Everything can change...

My practice is based in my house where I have an ideal peaceful therapy room.  In some circumstances I can do house visits or sessions by skype
I specialise in treating:
  • Weight loss without dieting
  • Phobias including fear of flying, agoraphobia etc 
  • Anxiety and Panic attacks 
  • Habits and compulsions, eg smoking and nail biting
  • Alleviating physiological conditions such as chronic pain
  • Helping patients cope with chemotherapy, surgery and fertility treatment
  • I have also used hypnotherapy as an anaesthetic for minor surgery at the Royal Surrey County Hospital
Weight control
My approach uses hypnotherapy to ‘shrink’ the stomach and increase metabolic rate to enable effortless weight loss without dieting or will power.   It combines aspects of the ‘virtual gastric band’ technique with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Hypnotherapy to enable long term weight loss and increased wellbeing.  

“I found Di's weight loss plan effortless. I can still eat anything I want, but I don't have to eat everything. I haven't been to the gym at all since starting Di's plan, my exercise forms part of my normal daily activities. My plan is tailored to me. Di is supportive and encouraging.  I've made permanent changes, which are easy to stick to, and nothing is banned.  I’m losing about a kilo a month and I now walk with a spring in my step, feel more confident and have more energy and motivation to move - I feel great!”NL

“I am 59 years old and  I have had a bird phobia for as long as I can remember.  It got progressively worse over the years, to the point where I was virtually house bound! I would get cold sweats and panic the second I had to leave the house and if a bird even hovered near me I felt as though I could pass out. I heard about Diana and decided to give it a try. I had three sessions with her and even after the first one I felt better and I walked out of her house for the first time in years without that dreaded feeling.  By the time I had the third session I felt ready to meet her pet bird! I would not say my phobia has been cured,  but somehow after all these year, thanks to Diana, I have learned to control my fear and I can now walk around outside without panic.  She has changed my life. Thank you Diana!”  ME

Anxiety and Panic attacks 
“Diana Clift helped me overcome serious stress over exam periods through hypnosis. Previously to treatment, I had stomach pains, excess stomach acid and was sick on occasion during stressful periods in my life.  With Diana's help I dramatically reduced my stress, calmed myself down, and was better able to focus. This reduced the amount of prescription drugs I needed to take and made me feel much happier and healthier.” GBB

Habits and compulsions
“I suffered from Trichotillomania, which is the compulsive urge to pull out one's own hair leading to noticeable hair loss, distress, and social or functional impairment. It is classified as an impulse control disorder and is often chronic and difficult to treat. I had never tried hypnotherapy before and was a little skeptical about how or if it would work for someone like myself with the deep rooted habit that I had, given that no other treatments I had undergone before had worked.

I went to see Di on recommendation from a friend for a couple of hypnotherapy sessions. Although I was anxious Di made me feel relaxed and comfortable and talked me through what would happen in our session. I didn't know hypnotherapy would be so calming, Di has a very soothing tone to her voice and somehow aided me to let my mind wander. I don't remember a lot of what it was like while I was hypnotized but I can say with certainty that I was peaceful, calm and very relaxed. The hypnotherapy I had with Di somehow stopped the urge I had to pull my hair out as often as I used to. I can now go for weeks without touching a single hair on my head whereas before I would pull my hair out numerous times a day for sometimes hours on end. Di did wonders for my habit and also my self confidence and I will have absolutely no hesitation in going to see her again in the future for more treatment!" DT

“I was a 40 a day smoker when Diana Clift treated me for smoking cessation in 2006.  I had one session and I haven’t smoked a single cigarette since!  I was initially very sceptical and it was not an easy fix but the help Diana gave me in quitting is something I shall forever be grateful for.”  CH

“Diana has helped me with my insomnia.  I've battled it for a year now and after seeing her I noticed that her hypnotherapy enabled me in to a normal sleep pattern.  It has been life changing to say the least.  Diana is a massive inspiration and has educated me with the power of the mind.  I really recommend going to see Diana for sleep issues or anything else that can benefit you.  She is welcoming, friendly and always checks up to see how you are doing.  Thanks Diana for all your help.” - CB

Physiological conditions 
I never interfere with conventional medical treatment, but hypnotherapy can help people prepare for and recover from surgical procedures, chemotherapy, fertility treatment and with pain control

“I have been to see Diana for various problems in the last  four years ranging from nail biting to a three year battle with cancer.  Diana has helped me enormously and I cannot praise her help and kindness enough.  Many thanks Diana!”  DGW
