Hello and Welcome!
My name is Evelyne Gilles and I am a fully bilingual (French and English ) Cognitive Behavioural hypnotherapist and I specialize in the treatment of stress and stress-related disorders such as anxiety, insomnia and depression.
If you have arrived on my page, perhaps you are searching for Resilience Building in Lewisham, Hypnotherapy in Greenwich, or Stress Management in Blackheath.. A warm welcome to you.
At one time or another we are all affected by stress. Whether during busy and hectic times at work, when managing our finances, disciplining our children, or coping with challenging relationships at home or in the workplace, stress is everywhere. And while some stress is actually beneficial, too much stress can wear us down and make us ill, both mentally and physically.
but too much stress can be detrimental.
Stress is not altogether a bad thing. When kept to a minimum, it can help us accomplish our daily tasks quite efficiently and can also serve to prevent us from getting hurt. In fact, our bodies are designed to handle controlled amounts of stress. But, it is not equipped to handle long-term, chronic stress without our suffering adverse consequences.
Unfortunately, traditional medicine struggles to cope with the common ailments of our times - stress, anxiety and depression to name but a few– offering little besides anti-depressants. Fortunately, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Hypnosis have been found to present powerful, natural and effective alternatives. CBT is also an evidence-based solution that does not take years of sitting on sofas to bear fruit.
Some of the most common causes of stress have been cited as:
- Upcoming Inspections
- Performance Appraisals
- Time Management
- Lesson Observations
- A combination of all of the above and much more.
What I can help you achieve:
Using proven therapeutic techniques, I can help you manage your stress levels and build your resilience so you can enjoy freedom from the unhealthy negative emotional states of (anxiety, anger, frustration, depression, fatigue...), that accompany stress, so you can finally experience greater ease, empowerment and effective living.
In addition, my systematic approach to mindfulness, relaxation, self-acceptance and to changing your thinking habits and behaviour, will make it easy for you to achieve your therapeutic goals.
Being resilient does not mean that you will never experience stress. It means that when a stressful situations do arise, you will be able to adapt to them, to cope with them, and also to recover quickly from any psychological impact the stressful situations may have caused.
More on my Approach:
I practise Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) which combines hypnotherapy with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). The combination of CBT and Hypnosis creates a powerful treatment solution that can help you manage stress and other stress-related conditions, by changing the way you think, feel and behave.
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy is an enjoyable and relaxing experience which allows you to access your full potential with relatively little effort and in a short time. It is most commonly used to treat stress and anxiety, but has also proven very useful for other mental and physical health problems as well. By using the latest advancements in CBT Techniques, I can help you easily and quickly learn a new approach to positive personal change.
Rest assured that during the process, you are in full control all the time. You cannot be made to do anything that you do not want to do (unlike in the case of "stage hypnosis" as shown on television, where individuals are seen to be made to behave in uncharacteristically strange ways!)

I adopt an evidence-based approach because I believe that all my clients deserve to know that the treatments I provide are effective.
I also believe that good therapy is common sense therapy. It shouldn't be mysterious or mystical or include unnecessary ideas or theories.
That is why I explain and teach self-hypnosis to my clients according to known principles in psychology and physiology.
At Healing With Hypnosis I use the following ways of dealing with a stress and related conditions, each of which has a strong evidence base for effectiveness:
- Cognitive behavioural therapy,
- Applied Relaxation Training,
- Mindfulness-Based Therapy (Mindfulness Meditation)
- Assertiveness and Self-Expression Training
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
- Attention Training
- Applied Relaxation (learning to relax as a skill and in the situation)
- Assertiveness and Self-expression (be yourself more!)
- Disengaging from thinking and greater contact with the present moment (mindfulness and cognitive defusion)
- Mental stillness and mind-centering techniques
- Taking action and approaching that which is meaningful and important in your life (commited action around valued living).
I believe that therapy should always be about giving you a sense of personal control. Clinical research shows that by giving clients more control and choice during the therapeutic process inevitably leads to a stronger and more robust personal mental health and psychology.
