About Lisa Bentley
Professionally, I am a Hypnotherapist with Counselling Skills, Stress Consultant and Health Facilitator. I have a successful business background and since qualifying as a Hypnotherapist in 2015, I now run my own Hypnotherapy practice in Rochester, Kent as well as working as a hypnotherapy tutor for Chrysalis Not For Profit Ltd, teaching students the Diploma in Hypnotherapy with Counselling Skills. In 2016 I started working for the Harmony Therapy Trust Cancer Charity, helping patients on a one to one basis, and for the last 2 years and I have also been working for the Public Health Department of her local authority, where I run 11-week healthy lifestyle programmes to groups of adults across Medway. I am a Time to Change Champion for Mind and A Better Medway Champion, where I proactively help residents in my area.
Personally, as both a teenager and adult, I suffered from issues with food, but back in 2005, after my husband tragically died in a road traffic accident and then hitting rock bottom, I decided I had no choice but to get up. It was live or die. And today, I stand tall and proud. I am free from the anguish, shame and self-disgust my issues with food brought. I am stronger, wiser, healthier, happier and fulfilled. I have learnt you can overcome anything with the right support and application.
My mission in life is simple: to help sufferers overcome anything that is holding them back, raise their self-esteem and enable them to live the life they deserve.
We are all on our own journey in life, but sometimes we need a guide.
