Hypnotherapy Exeter & Torquay, Devon
Firstly, well done for arriving here at Bay Therapy - Hypnotherapy Exeter, Torquay and beyond.
Far too many people continue to live with a problem and often feel too embarrassed to even talk about it. If you want to make positive changes you have come to the right place.
I am Penny Albertella, and I am one of Devon’s most experienced Hypnotherapists. I am qualified in both Clinical Hypnotherapy and Hypnoanalysis and offer hypnotherapy in Exeter & Torquay. Clinical hypnotherapy is wonderful to help lose weight, quit smoking, fear of flying and sometimes phobias or panic attacks etc whereas Pure Hypnoanalysis is great for treating more serious anxiety related disorders or depression.
Detailed information about many of these medical conditions can be found in the menu above under symptoms treated.

The effects of hypnotherapy*
I am required, by my Professional Association, to use only genuine testimonials and to make all testimonials available to them on request along with the written permission of each client whose testimonial is used.

Hypnotherapy is a wonderfully fast, effective therapy which changes lives immeasurably in a very short time. This website is dedicated to make it as easy as possible for you to take the next steps by giving you the information you are looking for, whether it is the symptoms hypnotherapy treats, or to find out more about hypnotherapy and how/why it works.
I also explain about ‘Pure’ Hypnoanalysis– a very special type of hypnotherapy taught by IAEBP (The International Association of Evidence Based Psychotherapy), one of the best methods in the world for treating emotional, psychological or anxiety-related problems.
Pure Hypnoanalysis aims to treat the root cause of symptoms, rather than just the symptoms themselves. If you don’t treat the underlying cause, the symptoms often just return in the fullness of time, or you may even experience symptom substitution.
Typically, it treats the more serious phobias which are serious enough to stop the sufferer from living a normal day to day life such as emetophobia, tokophobia, fear of driving, agoraphobia etc and social phobia, sometimes known as social anxiety.
All types of physical problems can be treated with hypnotherapy – the mind and the body are inextricably linked – blood pressure can be lowered, pain relief achieved, give IBS relief, support IVF and help with unexplained infertility.
Hypnosis for Childbirth, usually known as Hypnobirthing, is often learned because of fear of the birth itself, fear of the pain, fear as a result of previous bad births, or because the Mum wants to give birth as naturally as possible, and with as little pain relief as possible.
* free initial consultation
I always offer a free initial consultation, as with all types of therapy and treatments, Hypnotherapy is not suitable for all issues and resolution cannot be guaranteed. For instance, hypnotherapy is not suitable if you are suffering from psychosis.
However, attending for a free initial consultation acts as a screening session and will help me to assess if this therapy is suitable for you. It also gives you a chance to meet me and assess if you feel comfortable working with me.
I want my therapy to work for you, so I will let you know, at the initial consultation, if I don't think it will and I will always tell you if at any point during therapy, if I feel things are not going well. This is incredibly an important part of the trust between therapist and client.
