Your Macclesfield Hypnotherapist and counsellor

Hello! I’m Alison, your Macclesfield based hypnotherapist and counsellor. I am here to help people like you to improve their life. I can offer you support and understanding in a calm, safe and confidential environment. Where you have the freedom to open up and develop yourself with an empathetic and experienced therapist. I teach you the tools for self-care and strategies that will help you to continue developing beyond our sessions. If you would like to free yourself from whatever is holding you back, hypnotherapy or counselling could give you that freedom!

‘I would highly recommend Alison Ralph Hypnotherapy. Alison works from a lovely purpose-made therapy room in her home which is calming, relaxing and very welcoming. Alison herself is very calm and relaxed and so immediately puts you at ease…’

Serving Macclesfield and the surrounding areas

In my private practice I welcome hypnotherapy and counselling clients not only from Macclesfield but the surrounding areas too. I am a short drive away from Prestbury, Wilmslow, and Bollington and people travel as far as Congleton and Stockport. 

I am proud to have a private hypnotherapy and counselling practice based in Macclesfield where I can get to know and understand my clients and their needs so I can be led by them and support them in the best possible way using my experience and knowledge in the field of therapy and hypnosis. 

When you are struggling with a mental health condition or just don’t know where else to turn in life it can be a lonely and scary place. I am here to help and support in a non-judgemental and understanding environment.

Hypnotherapy and counselling are two different therapies which I offer, working from my Macclesfield based therapy room, serving Macclesfield and the surrounding areas. It might be that you are interested in one, or both. You can find out more about how each therapy works on my website or feel free to get in touch via email or phone. 

‘Alison listened to my worries and reassured me, cured my anxiety and made it stay away, so much so I went on and had more sessions to stop smoking too and haven’t sampled since, absolutely would recommend to anyone, very relaxing atmosphere and a great listener and also explains everything so well, worth every single penny…and being anxious I wasn’t the best example to just go and do something like this but it was so worth plucking up the courage, transformed my day to day life and looking forward I’m now a non smoker too’.

Change your thinking with hypnotherapy

Overcome issues or embark on self-improvement through hypnotherapy sessions. Together we can challenge your thinking and find new ways of behaving giving you positive outcomes and helping you to achieve goals. In these sessions we will go on a journey together using the relaxing and fascinating technique of hypnosis.

Caring for your collegues with my corporate sessions

Are you interested in helping your employees through the use of holistic therapies? Hypnotherapy has many benefits, including helping the body to relax to help a person feel calmer and less anxious. I often go into workplaces to work with groups of people teaching them strategies that they can use at home and allowing them the wonderful experience of hypnosis. If a person is calmer, they feel less stressed and are able to cope and perform better in the work place. 


It might be that you would like to get a gift for someone who is struggling with anxiety or transitioning through the menopause or maybe you would like a recording to listen to every night so you can sleep well. I have a number of products, all made by me and helping you to improve your well-being. You can buy them from my website and have them posted out to your address or as a gift for somebody else. 

Is it time to make changes and feel in control?

Working with me in my therapy room based in Macclesfield you can make discoveries about yourself in a calming, non-judgemental, understanding and confidential environment. You will have the space to work through issues and resolve them in the best way for you. Any work I complete whether that be in my private practice or through other means is always client led and focussed on using my skills and experience to give my clients the best possible outcome for them.

Client's who have transformed their lives...

I went from 20 a day for 20 years to smoke free for the last 7 months after just 2 sessions. I can’t recommend highly enough. (Male)

I can’t thank Alison enough for helping me manage my anxiety and showing me some useful techniques to deal with daily situations. She made the environment cosy and safe and I felt completely comfortable opening up to her. (Female)

I came to Alison to try and stop my habit of hair pulling as I had tried myself with no success. Alison made me feel very comfortable and worked with me to put methods into place to stop my habit of pulling. After only a few hypnotherapy session I have stopped pulling daily and now know how to stop myself if I am tempted to pull. Before starting sessions, I didn’t know a lot about hypnotherapy but after having results in such a short amount of time I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stop a habit. (Female)
