Qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist

Fiona Vitel, a fully trained and certified clinical hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner, began her practice a decade ago in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Her highly successful hypnotherapy business flourished more by word-of-mouth than advertising and her name and presence was known through various media interviews on radio and various editorials in newspapers and magazines throughout the region.

Fiona trained in the USA and London. A first generation Australian, born to British parents, she decided to return to England, after nine years in the United Arab Emirates, and has established her office in the central Cotswold town of Winchcombe, near Cheltenham in Gloucestershire.

A decade of experience and with thousands of sessions under her belt, Fiona leads as an established professional.


Trained and Mentored by the Best

Beyond his therapeutic breakthroughs he revolutionized the profession with his instant induction techniques.  Gil created the first registration and certification program for hypnotherapists. He founded and developed the first hypnotherapist organization with serious standards for training, the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners.


Patrick’s a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and Hypnotherapy Instructor with the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners – ACHE, one of the oldest Hypnotherapy organizations in the United States. He’s presented at their annual International Hypnotherapy Conference in Glendale, California on three separate occasions since 1998. In 2010, he moved his office out of the Hypnotherapy school, in order to devote more time to focus on teaching NLP and on his private practice. Since 2005 he has taught and certified over a hundred students as Facilitators of NLP, and since 1995, has performed over 3,000 sessions in private practice.

In 2011 Patrick left the Hypnotherapy school entirely in order to present his training material and methods under his own name, later changing the name of his business to Inner Mind Sourcing™  to reflect the growing uniqueness of the work. He continues to develop and present classes under his new business name, joining the Better Business Bureau as  Inner Mind Sourcing™.
