Hypnotherapist Claire Bader DSFH

 

Claire has lived and worked in the Stroud area for over 30 years, and qualified with a Diploma in Solution Focussed Hypnotherapy (DSFH) from CPHT after becoming interested in how the mind and body work together as a result of her work teaching Qi Gong (a moving meditation).

Having worked as a mainstream instructor, specialising in teaching exercise to the over 60’s or less able or for those wanting to return to exercise, Claire gained a further qualification – PSI (Postural Stability Instructor), which she trained and studied for alongside the physiotherapists at Stroud Hospital.  It was this course which led her to Qi Gong, as this is a component of the PSI course.

Over the years Claire has worked for several local GP practices and currently works for the GP Charitable Trust in Minchinhampton.

Claire firmly believes in hypnotherapy for change, without drug intervention and their side effects. Claire is confident that her clients have the answer, and that her role is to help them find it.

In her spare time, Claire likes to paint in water colours or mixed media.  She enjoys ‘jazz jive’ and walking her dog around our beautiful countryside, which is an inspiration for some of her art work.

I suffer from a stiff neck and shoulder pain mainly because of years sitting at a computer and not moving my body as it’s meant to move; also there is an age issue here (58). Dave has eased the stiffness and taken some of the pain away already after only 2 sessions. He is attentive and helps me to feel comfortable and at ease with the process.
Denise Eccles,

I have been visiting Claire regularly for 4 years now to help me effectively manage my Fibromyalgia Syndrome. My pain levels and muscle soreness have been reduced, and my energy levels significantly increased. I have also experienced debilitating episodes of Hemiplegic Migraine but with Claire's gentle 'needling' technique I am very happy to say I have been clear for 3 years now. Claire is a true professional and takes time needed to get to know her patients as individuals thus treating them accordingly.
Julie Haynes,

I visited Claire with severe crippling back pain being 18 weeks pregnant. I found my treatment very professional, time was taken to talk, the cause of my problem was identified and sorted. Friendly, helpful and a very calm environment. Never rushed and consideration for baby and myself at all times. So glad to have someone I can call on if it happens again.

Dave's skill in massage therapy, pin-pointing the exact area of muscular pain and tension in my leg, resulted in blessed relief, and after a few treatments I was running again. He is friendly and fun, taking one's mind off the pain as he works......and I didn't even need to take the car out of the drive. A great service!
Vicky Kelman

I initially sought Chiropractic care over 15 years ago for back and neck pain and Claire has very successfully treated me for the last 8 years. I can confidently say that she is by far the best Chiropractor that I have ever seen. My back used to regularly sieze or go into spasms but this rarely happens now and I believe it is because of the excellent treatment that I receive from Claire. She is gentle and effective, and I have no hesitation in recommending her treatment.
Sarah Smith

I would just like to say the help and caring treatment I had from Claire enabled me to get through a very difficult time. In particular her techniques for guiding me through a very distressing cardiac stress MRI scan which I was dreading as I am very claustrophobic.

It was all down to my mental control and use of visualisation telling me I was safe and could deal with the situation, combined with words of encouragement and affirmation. I would not hesitate to see her again if the need arises.

Thank you once again for a wonderful massage. It is always a great way to relax as you are so thorough. The pressure is always spot on. Helps me cope with the week ahead. Many thanks.
Sue Convery

As you know I have a muscular condition but after your very careful massages all my aches and pains are spirited away. I always look forward to my next one and the relief it gives me. You are very thorough with your questions and have totally taken on board my illness and the restrictions necessary. Thankyou.
Jane Sanders

I work at a computer and often suffer from neck and back discomfort. Having treatment right here in my office was the ultimate in convenience, even luxury, and several colleagues have now signed up for Dave's time-efficient and effective therapy.
Isabel Laird

I worked with Claire Bader during a period of intense stress and uncertainty. Her knowledge, skill and empathy were evident from our very first meeting, and I left every hypnotherapy session feeling calm, capable and in control. I highly recommend her!
