Training, Specialist Skills and Professional Memberships
As an accredited member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy’, a fellow of the ‘National Society of Hypnosis, Psychotherapy and Mindfulness’ and a registered member of the ‘Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council‘, I am required to abide by their Code of Ethics and Practice. This includes undertaking regular supervision, being covered by professional insurance and being committed to continued updating of my skills and training. I am also registered with The United Kingdom Confederation of Hypnotherapy Organisations (UKCHO)
I have been a fully qualified Psychotherapist, Hypnotherapist and Counsellor since 1995. Prior to this time, I gained extensive experience in the field of mental health: working within Social Services, National Health Service & voluntary sector.
I have been an affiliate counsellor working for Workplace Options since August 2003. Workplace Options are an international ‘Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)’ who contract with a number of client companies to deliver EAP services to their employees and family members. The service I offer as an affiliate counsellor is short-term focused therapy dealing with a personal or work issue identified by you, the client.
I am also a registered counsellor with the Immigrant Counselling and Psychotherapy (ICAP) organisation funded by the Irish Government to provide service for victims of abuse and their families.
I became a fully qualified Life Coach in 2004. Being a therapist as well as a coach means that I already understand the underlying processes of interaction, human development and blocks to progress. In 2005 I undertook my advanced Hypnotherapist training (S to the third power Hypnotherapy) with UK Academy of Therapeutic Arts and Sciences, and also became a certified specialist in working with depression.
I was invited in 2006 to join the Brookhouse Hypnotherapy Group as a member. Brookhouse Hypnotherapy is the name of a national group of practices, founded by Dr Shaun Brookhouse. Dr Brookhouse has appointed myself, Sharon Mustard to run the practice for the area of South Wiltshire and West Hampshire covered by the SP postcode.

I am also the founder and director of easibirthing – a UK model designed for using hypnosis with issues around fertility and in childbirth.
In addition to my private courses, since 2006 I have had a large contract with Salisbury District Hospital nhs Trust maternity services whereby I am funded to teach women, partners, and teenage mums-to-be; but also midwives and health care support workers to support individuals using these methods.
In partnership with the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy, I also train Hypnotherapy practitioners throughout the UK to specialise in both the areas of childbirth and fertility.
From January 2012 I also run the counselling service for Godolphin Boarding and day school for girls in Salisbury Wiltshire.
