About Renie and Therapy4Stress

My name is Renie and I have 10 years experience as a psychotherapist helping many people work through a variety of issues, such as anxiety, stress management, fears or phobias, confidence and self-worth issues. I believe that everyone is an individual and for that reason I tailor the therapy to suit the person and their issue.

More about Renie and her experience

Renie is a trained psychotherapist, who has successfully used hypnosis, BWRT and other stress management techniques to relax her clients who have been suffering from stress, low mood, lack of confidence and self-esteem and other issues.

As a cancer survivor, she now also help others, who are going through a similar journey, including the many aspects associated with serious illness, for the person diagnosed and also their involved family.

“Hypnosis, is simply a pleasant state of deep relaxation, during which you are in total control of all your actions, whilst I help you take some suggestions on board to help you overcome the issues that have presented, ” says Renie.

Throughout her life, Renie has always wanted to help people – ever since primary school, when other children always used come to her when they were hurt or to ask advice. At 17, she applied to be a nurse but at that time a trainee nurse was not allowed to get married during the 3 years of training and while waiting to begin her training she got married!

Undeterred, she built up a people-based career first in marketing and customer services and then as a successful financial adviser and administrator serving people from all walks of life.

‘I was always meeting people suffering from stress of one sort or another’.

“I was always meeting people suffering from anxiety, stress, and fears in their work or private life, while others were struggling with situations they didn’t want to be in. So when a friend told me about a thought field therapy course she’d taken, I started researching the whole field of therapy, counselling and communication skills. I put myself through a diploma course in hypnotherapy and in 2010 I left my full-time position and started my practice as a psychotherapist.”

She’s practised hypnotherapy ever since and is now also qualified to offer neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), timeline therapy (TLT), thought field therapy (TFT) and brain working recursive therapies (BWRT®) levels 1-2, all of which can be used alongside hypnotherapy, tailored to a person’s needs. She also volunteers one day a week helping cancer patients through the Cherry Lodge Cancer Care charity, in Barnet, Hertfordshire.

Renie is constantly studying new techniques, a reflection of her lifelong passion to help others. Her latest professional development course is BWRT® level 3, an area still in its research stages, but possibly one of the most exciting developments in therapy so far. It focuses on the physiological aspects of the mind/body connection, and how they can work together to improve some physical issues.

The range of therapies is increasing but, as Renie points out, clients need to be committed: “I tell everyone my therapies are not magic. For me to be able to help, you need to really desire the result – so your full commitment is essential.”

I wanted to write and thank you, for changing my life. I don’t think you will ever completely understand what you have done for me. I have suffered from a needle phobia all my life and simple blood test would reduce me to panic and tears. I came to see Renie and she talked me through the technique, but I wasn’t convinced that one session would be so life changing. After one session, I went …

As a doctor, I felt sceptical, even suspicious about the use of complimentary therapies. Unless there was a tablet I could throw at the situation, I wasn’t interested. I started seeing Renie at my local cancer support centre upon the suggestion of a Macmillan nurse. I was highly anxious and felt very bleak at the time. I started hypnotherapy with Renie and the effect was dramatic and immediate. The experience was positive and calming. I …


Went to see Rene not knowing what to expect, this lady has changed my life for the better. There is homework but that only takes a few minutes. Rene has the ability to make you feel calm and safe. I highly recommend her services, worth every penny. Thank you once again


I came to see Renie at possibly one of the hardest times of my life. I had a lot of fear and stress over a recent diagnosis. Renie’s approach was both down to earth and practical. It helped me put everything into perspective and in turn made it all manageable. It felt like a weight had been lifted off me. So much so that some of my physical symptoms abated a little also. With a …

Absolutely brilliant! Renie made me feel so at ease from the very first session, listened, understood me and we agreed the next steps together. The therapy has been so helpful to me, it was made clear to me that I had to invest in my journey, which I did, but Renie was supportive every step of the way. The therapy has made a real difference to my every day life. Can’t speak highly enough of …
