About me

Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire Based Counsellor, Psychotherapist & Hypnotherapist

Sian Charman is a highly qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and hypnotherapist based in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire who works with adults and young adults (13+). Sian holds multiple qualifications and is, therefore, able to help people with different counselling techniques meaning she can tailor her approach to your individual needs. Sian holds the following qualifications:

  • Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling Ad Dip PC
  • Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills Dip Hyp CS
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) Therapy & Coaching
  • Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Counselling & Psychotherapy:

Sian is a highly experienced and dedicated counsellor, providing invaluable support to her clients as they work through life’s challenges. Offering a tailored approach, she has enabled countless individuals to gain insight into their issues and develop the resilience to overcome them.

Through her insightful analysis and compassionate nature, Sian is skilled in helping those dealing with anxiety, depression, abuse, bereavement, anger issues, family issues, low self-esteem, stress and more. She provides an incredibly valuable counselling service that has tangible results for her patients – improved mental well-being and a renewed sense of coping mechanisms.


Sian's hypnotherapy sessions provide her clients with a wide array of therapeutic benefits. The sessions utilise the power of suggestion to reduce stress levels and assist with achieving a healthy way of living. Clients have visited Sian to manage issues such as preparing for job interviews, overcoming sporting challenges and improving motivation. In addition, clients may also book sessions to focus on activities like meditation and relaxation. Self-Esteem improvement, Confidence building and increased ability to cope with medical interventions are all achievable, too. Lastly, Sian has been able to assist those suffering from fear associated with transportation such as Flying anxiety or Driving Issues as well as helping them make healthier dietary choices.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP):

Sian is a firm believer in the power of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and how it can assist her clients in overcoming their phobias. She has seen it help these individuals to regain more confidence in themselves and start to achieve more of their full potential. For those who find NLP sufficient on its own, Sian utilises a mix of tools such as exploring past memories, pacing and leading techniques, presenting alternate perspectives, and asking powerful questions - all with the intention of reframing the problem to create a better solution. However, for those cases where phobias are causing the client additional difficulty, Sian may combine NLP with other forms of therapy such as Hypnotherapy to give them an even greater chance of changing old habits and assumptions and moving forward.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy & Coaching:

EMDR Therapy & Coaching is an incredibly powerful form of therapy, offering life-changing results to those who may be dealing with traumatic experiences. From anxiousness at work to more severe issues like physical or sexual abuse, it can help victims to process their painful memories and reduce the emotional distress that has been brought on by these experiences. Sian's clients can attest to the power of EMDR Therapy & Coaching as it helps to provide a space for them to identify and deal with any unresolved emotional damage. Through this type of therapy, not only do clients come away with healing from difficult life situations, but they have also gained the necessary tools to help them in future life obstacles.
