About me

Hi, my name is Rowenna and I am a qualified Master NLP Coach and Cognitive Hypnotherapist.

I help people break free from negative habits and unhelpful mindsets, and to develop a stronger sense of self, love, connection and lasting positive changes.

People usually come to me when they are tired of living a mediocre existence. You may have tried several other therapies, personal development tools or coaching styles, but you still feel stuck. I understand how frustrating this can feel.

NLP Coaching and Cognitive Hypnotherapy, is different. Using these techniques, I help people release the subconscious blocks that are keeping you from letting go of old fear based stories and safety behaviours.

These originally develop as a form of protection, but they ultimately hold you back from being your truest and most authentic self. In Cognitive Hypnotherapy, we recognise that if the mind can create a problem, then it can also create the solution. Our work together will help you to find your way forward, so you can let go of unhelpful patterns like these for good.

As well as running my own busy practice, I have worked with the NHS during the first part of the pandemic, offering health Coaching and support to patients and NHS staff in my local area.

I am also an Assistant Teacher for the Quest Institute, where I work alongside Trevor Silvester (the founder of Cognitive Hypnotherapy and who I originally trained with), based at Regent's University, where we deliver the Cognitive Hypnotherapy Diploma.

I have successfully helped hundreds of people experiencing all kinds of setbacks in life. Some of these include:

  • Lack of confidence and self-worth
  • Attachment and codependency issues
  • Communication difficulties
  • Imposter syndrome 
  • Fear of rejection or abandonment
  • Social phobias or anxieties
  • Burnout and work-life imbalance 
  • Self-abandonment due to trauma
  • Family or relationship breakdowns
  • Stress management 
  • Poor impulse control
  • Career choices
  • Blocks to money, love or success
  • Health issues and self-care
  • Post psychedelic integration 
  • Body awareness and emotional reconnection
  • Mindfulness and meditation practice development

These are just some of the issues I have helped people overcome.

By working with me you'll go on a journey to release old patterns and explore new ways of being yourself. Together we'll rediscover parts of you that may have been lost due to limiting or traumatic life experiences, and help you develop an empowered sense of identity.  

I offer F2F or online sessions, from my warm and friendly practice in Hackney, East London. I offer complete confidentiality and non-judgement whatever you are going through. I recognise and understand first hand, the courage and vulnerability it takes to reach out, and I'm here to support you with compassion all the way.

If you want to explore how we can work together and help you create lasting change, then I look forward to hearing from you.

"I cannot express how incredible Rowenna has been. From the beginning I felt incredibly comfortable and relaxed around her. Rowenna is such a warm, calm and understanding person. The techniques and exercises we went through have been life changing and have had the most positive impact on my life. I am forever grateful for Rowenna and for everything she has done for me." ~ Alicia, Jan 2021

"Rowenna sensitively supported me to dive deeply into my subconscious and find thought and behaviour patterns that had caused me suffering for years. She provided clarity on situations that has been holding me back. She helped me to detach from the past and reframe my thoughts positively which led me to feel liberated and have more compassion towards myself. I would thoroughly recommend Rowenna as an excellent therapist who provides a transformative therapy to let go of old habits and thought forms that prevent you from being your best self." ~ Merrigan, Feb 2021
