From my base in Petersfield, close to the Hampshire/West Sussex border, in the heart of the South Downs, I help people make the changes they need to make, to create the life they want to live.

Blended Therapy has joined the team of health and beauty therapists at Hälsa of Petersfield.
I now offer 60-minute hypnotherapy sessions in Hälsa’s therapy room in the centre of Petersfield, Hampshire, as an alternative to 90-minute sessions in my own consulting room. This is an ideal opportunity to find out how hypnotherapy can help you (Re)Learn to Relax and how this in turn can lead to lasting change in any – and every – area of your life.
Call me on 01730 750272 to book at either location or call Hälsa Cosmetics on 07871 784564 or drop in to 1 The Square, Petersfield, Hants. GU32 3HJ to book a session there (and browse their lovely selection of organic and natural skincare and cosmetics at the same time!).
Just as no two people are alike, so there are no one-size-fits-all solutions to life’s challenges, but if anything on the list below resonates with you, give me a call on 01730 750272 or email me to find out more.
Yoga is not about being bendy! It’s about reconnecting with how your body feels and how it needs to move today…
Hypnotherapy is an incredibly powerful ally to have in your corner when you are making changes in your life…
A space to share with you some of the resources and products that have helped or inspired me during my own journey…
I’m Helen Davis, founder of Blended Therapy. After 20 years as a successful business analyst, a diagnosis of ME/CFS in 2012 led to a major reassessment of my priorities and the realisation that the time had come for a complete change of direction.
My own experience of chronic illness taught me that the first step in creating lasting change is to (re)learn how to be truly present: in the here and now. One reason most of us find this so hard is that we live almost entirely ‘in our head’. When we reconnect with our body, our mind becomes quieter. Like calm water, a calm mind brings clarity, and with clarity comes insight. And that’s where the miracles happen!
In late 2014, a couple of years after my diagnosis with ME/CFS, I started retraining in two of the practices that had proved key to restoring my own health and wellbeing. I completed my 200-hour training in Clinical, Analytical and Medical Hypnotherapy with Hypnotherapy Training International in 2015, and was awarded my full Diploma in 2018. Later that same year I also completed the Inner Yoga Trust‘s 3-year, 500+ hour Teaching Diploma.
I work with people who are ready to make lasting change in their life, whatever that looks like for them. For some it may simply mean joining a regular yoga class or learning to use essential oils to support their own and their family’s health. For others, it’s about harnessing the power of the sub-conscious mind to reframe past experiences and create the life of their dreams while for a dedicated few it means signing up for a bespoke Blended Therapy wellness package.
Whichever path appeals to you, the bottom line is that I help people like you make the changes they need to make, to live the life they want to live.
To find out more, contact me now for a free, confidential, no-strings consultation to see if the time feels right for us to work together, either in person from my base in Petersfield in Hampshire or, where appropriate, online. I very much look forward to hearing from you.
Highly recommend Helen, she changed my life. I could not have fought my cancer without [the hypnotherapy work] we did together before my diagnosis. She is truly amazing.
I thought [the Mind Body Connect workshop] was an absolutely wonderful experience and I would like to thank you very much. I really loved the session, you are an excellent teacher and explain things so well , it was so gentle and relaxing , I felt like I was floating the rest of the afternoon. I’m sorry I was yawning so much but I think that was stress release, and I felt deeply tired later in the day and slept like a log!
A wonderful few hours to escape and reconnect. The Blended Therapy yoga workshop was perhaps the most relaxing thing I have ever done! Helen immediately puts you at ease. A wonderful session no matter your yoga experience. I am fairly inexperienced with yoga and I found it extremely gentle and wholly relaxing. You leave with a wonderful feeling that lasts for a few days at the very least. Can not recommend enough. Thank you Helen.
I attended Helen's workshop on Saturday morning ... and what a treat it was for my mind, body and spirit. Helen's attention to care is obvious throughout the morning as she gently guides you through movement and stillness. I can’t recommend Helen enough.
Helen is a brilliant therapist and a fantastic yoga teacher. My 1:1 yoga sessions with her have been incredibly effective, and her passion and knowledge are a source of continuous inspiration!
I sought Helen’s help because, having been to one of her amazing yoga sessions, I knew she was extremely professional but also a deeply caring and spiritual person. The [hypnotherapy] session I had with her was very relaxing and highly effective. She listened carefully, explained fully and tailored everything exactly to my needs. Because of this, and her expert knowledge of hypnotherapy, I feel like the issue I trusted her with was fully addressed and I feel wonderful! I have no reservations in recommending Helen, she is a brilliant therapist!Helen Cooper Bowen Therapist
I just wanted to say thank you for today's session, I feel very confident that I am going to benefit from your classes and really like the way that you teach giving food for the body and the soul! Look forward to seeing you next week and learning more!
I had a hypnotherapy session with Helen to prepare me for hand surgery and for my recovery afterwards. I loved her calm, friendly approach. The personalised recordings (for pre- and post-op) were also very helpful. Definitely recommended!
Had a fab 1:1 yoga session with Helen this morning. As it's school holidays my usual class doesn't meet so I took the opportunity for some special 1:1 'me time'. I arrived tired, emotional, lacking in energy and even motivation, but, as I'd booked it I wasn't going to back out. By the time I left I felt bright eyed, motivated, relaxed, enthusiastic and so much calmer than when I arrived.Holistic Counselling Services
Helen's yoga classes are wonderful - friendly, informative and great for re-connecting with your body.
"I have been suffering from a bad back for several years, it’s intermittent in terms of pain but always bothers me. I hoped that yoga would help with overall flexibility and maybe even improve my back. I have been truly surprised that even after the first session there was a definite improvement, I did think it was maybe coincidence, but now after 3 sessions, there is a definite improvement. I really hope this continues. I feel that by actually attending a class on a regular basis, I will feel more in control and am actually making a difference myself to my wellbeing. I live a fairly hectic and stressful life, however I have been very surprised at how relaxed and calm I feel after each session. Helen is a wonderful teacher and makes me feel as though I am at the beginning of a journey. I’m so looking forward to seeing where it takes me."
“Having trained in hypnotherapy with Helen I was already familiar with her excellent work, and now speaking as a client I am thrilled to get to give her a review - I cannot recommend her highly enough. For a sensitive, caring, intuitive, gentle, positive and effective therapist, look no further.”Relationships & Life Coach
“I was very lucky to meet Helen about a year after I had become unwell with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). At the time I didn’t know what was wrong with me other than it had come on out of the blue and was trying to take my life away from me! In addition to the hypnotherapy, it was so inspirational to talk to Helen who herself had been so ill and to see how well she has recovered. She has learned so much through her own journey back to health. Her combination of wisdom, expertise and compassion set me on the right path to recovery myself.”
“I went to see Helen as I was worried about having a wisdom tooth removed, due to a previous difficult experience. I found Helen extremely easy to work with and she immediately put me at ease. I have to admit that I was slightly sceptical about hypnotherapy beforehand but the experience was wonderful! My dental surgery proved to be as complicated as the last time but I was able to use hypnotherapy to get me through in a completely calm way. The dentist was amazed at how calm I was considering how difficult the extraction was. I would definitely go back and see Helen and I highly recommend her as a therapist.”
"A friend recommended me to Helen as I was having panic attacks, was feeling very emotional and was not sleeping well. I had given up my voluntary job as an adviser because I did not feel strong enough in myself to help others. Any sort of deadline would make me start to panic, and this was not the person I was used to being. Having never done hypnotherapy before, I felt nervous about it and was worried about the loss of control. Helen is kind and has a gentle and reassuring manner. She explained carefully what would happen, and I immediately felt safe and trusted her. She has a lovely voice – very calm and reassuring while ‘under hypnosis’. Helen went out of her way to help me at short notice and her sessions calmed me down and gave me techniques to use which were invaluable when I started to feel anxious again. Working with her has been a pleasure as well as extremely helpful. I would highly recommend going to see her."
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help and assistance during my hypnotherapy sessions. Originally I was a little sceptical around the process having never experienced hypnotherapy before. However, within minutes of my initial session I felt at ease and knew that with time I would be able to overcome a number of personal barriers. I can say without any doubt the help and techniques you installed got me to a much more positive place. Therefore I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends, family or colleagues. I hope to have some follow up sessions in the future.”
