Dorothea Read BA DHP HPD Hyp.Supervisor


Registered with CNHC and NCH, Dorothea is a full time Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and also a Solution Focused BRIEF* Therapist, trained with the BRIEF organisation.


She is experienced in using solution focused hypnotherapy in clients with significant health challenges, both in hospital and the therapy room. She also has a private practice in Cyncoed, Cardiff. 


Dorothea founded the Hospital Hypnotherapy Service in The University Hospital of Wales (UHW) in Cardiff, and now leads a team of Clinical Hypnotherapists in UHW.


She is founder of The Clinical Hypnotherapy School and is currently a supervisor and mentor for teachers. Dorothea founded the Diploma in Medical Hypnotherapy with Dr Rachel Gillibrand and has trained other hypnotherapists in how to support people with significant health challenges.

* ​When we have a problem we can sometimes lose sight of where we would like to be: a solution focused approach helps us to identify and achieve a better future. I aim to work quickly ( to be 'brief') This approach can be suitable for adults, couples and children.

Award Winning Hypnotherapist 

Dorothea has won a Beacon of Hope Award in November 2016 and a Staff Recognition Award from Cardiff and Vale University Health Board. She was also a finalist in the National Complementary Therapy Awards in October 2018.
