About Me

Aquila Hypnotherapy

Hi, I’m Brigitte Tong, and I am a clinical psychotherapist and hypnotherapist with a passion for helping people overcome their issues to achieve their highest potential. This comes from my own journey delving into personal development and the workings of the mind, and inspired me to study strategic psychotherapy and clinical hypnotherapy at the Institute of Applied Psychology, where I learned from the best in the tradition of the renowned American psychiatrist, Dr Milton Erickson. My teacher was himself taught by students of Dr Milton Erickson.

My journey led me to realise that psychological issues are real ‘injuries’ in the psyche of a person even though they are not visible but affect people just as adversely. They therefore need to be dealt with in the same sense as physical injuries in order for people to flourish.

If you have felt like you’ve been going around in circles dealing with the same issues or want to overcome them once and for all, please contact me now so that we can create the freedom and brilliant life that you deserve!
