Prior to Debbie following her career path in Hypnotherapy, Debbie studied Business Studies and Management and has successfully started up her own businesses.
As part of her entrepreneurial experience she has ran her own restaurant, slimming clubs, sales and marketing posts, property ventures and currently has an interest in a care provision business.
Debbie was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on 11th March 1964 alongside her twin brother Ian Alexander and joined the Craig family of Ann and Sandy with their 3 daughters Sandra, Patricia and Gillian.
Little did she envisage the path ahead of her and the various rocky roads leading to her move to Tampa, Florida and her finding the Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy. Having successfully completed the course in Clinical Hypnotherapy, she has found her calling and set up practice both working in East Lothian, Scotland and Tampa, Florida. Registered with the ACHE (American Council of Hypnotist Examiners), she continues to learn and study more on the transpersonal and pain management side.
Hypnosis and the psyche have always been fascinating subjects for her. Having seen Robert Halpern, Hypnotist, at The Playhouse, Edinburgh in 1984, she understood hypnosis to be for entertainment purposes and had many myths and misconceptions. Years later, having had various spiritual readings, unexplained answers and ideas coming to her when she awoke, white feathers on her door step and many “déjà vu” encounters, Douglas McKay, a close friend of hers booked Debbie on a Neuro Linguistic Programming NLP Course in South Queensferry with David Taylor of Power2change. That was the turning point for her. There was no going back.
With her passion for working with people, being a good listener and having the life experience in business, relationships and family, Debbie’s ability to facilitate the hypnotic process and see life changing results in her clients is the most rewarding accomplishment of all.
