Counselling and Hypnotherapy in Harrogate, North Yorkshire


My name is Pauline Brumwell. I am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and GHR Registered Hypnotherapist based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. I have been working as a therapist for over thirty years. In that time, I have developed an effective, integrative approach that incorporates traditional talking therapies with creative approaches such as Gestalt, artwork, writing, and, where appropriate, hypnotherapy.

I particularly enjoy working with clients who are keen to fully understand the situations that are distressing them. This often includes coming to terms with events we had, or have, little or no control over. It also frequently requires acknowledging where we may have, unconsciously, been contributing to difficult situations by continuing to use coping strategies that served us well in the past, but which may need updating now.

I have substantial experience in helping with...

  • Depression.

  • Anxiety.

  • Stress.

  • Problems relating to recent or past trauma or traumas.

  • Destructive recurring patterns in relationships, career, or self-care.

  • Difficulty in letting go of old hurts.

  • Problems of over-work or perfectionism.


  • I have spent many years working with these kinds of issues and negotiate individually with each new client to find an approach that honours their own unique experience and strength.

    I am based in the centre of Harrogate, about 6 minutes walk from the bus and train station, where there are frequent services from Knaresborough, York, Ripon, Leeds and surrounding areas. My office is also less than 5 minutes walk from the Jubilee multi-storey car park for those clients who prefer to come by car.

    If it is difficult for you to get to my office for any reason, I can work via Skype or phone with many issues. I can also provide personalised home hypnotherapy packages with hypnosis sessions in the form of downloadable MP3 recordings where appropriate.
