Masha Bennett - Practical Happiness
Glossop, Derbyshire, SK13 6LN


Safe, gentle and confidential help for anxiety, trauma, phobias, insomnia, addictions, depression, OCD, eating disorders, weight management (including the hypnotic gastric band option) and many other emotional, psychological and psychosomatic issues, for adults, couples and children, in Glossop and Mossley.

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist, using NLPt (Neurolinguistic Psychotherapy), EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Hypno-Psychotherapy (including Hypnotic Gastric Band), Sandplay Therapy, Sandplay Coaching and Ecotherapy in my work with clients.

Hypnotension treatment programme for high blood pressure is also available, as is Hypno-Band Weight Loss System.

Together with each client we discover the best way of working together, to facilitate the healing, growth and learning - you are unique and so is your journey.

I combine my private practice with part-time work in the NHS as a Psychological Therapist in a Staff Support Service.

My standard session fee is £70, and I offer concessions to people on low income, war veterans and workers of emergency services traumatised in the course of the duties. Fees for children and adolescents are half-price, with further discounts possible for families on low income.

I also teach AAMET certified courses in EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques, or "tapping therapy") in the UK and internationally; I have taught many hundreds of psychologists, counsellors, nurses, psychiatrists, teachers, addiction professionals and members of general public to use this simple and effective technique. In-house courses are available by arrangement. Some of the pictures in the photo gallery illustrate a few of the varied groups I taught.

I'm better now

I began seeing Masha as I was generally very ill. She enabled me to help myself using a less rigid and more creative therapy - compared to what I had tried on the NHS. For me, there is no quick fix, but without Masha - I wonder if I ever would have coped. I am now more healthy than I ever thought I could be, and I am sure that Masha's calm, her resourcefulness and sense of humour enabled me to accept my situation and live life to the full.

When I went to see Masha I was extremely anxious but this lady put me at ease straight away. I went to see Masha because I had several ‘problems’ running around in my head, all of which, no matter how hard I tried I could not resolve. I was going in circles, and I knew I needed help.

Masha is such a wonderful person, she is unique, you just know that this lady is none judgemental and relaxes you in such a way you just want to unburden yourself, Masha used several methods to help me and each session was different, depending on what mood I was in and how Masha felt she could best help me.

I know for a fact that it is so hard to take that first step, but I can honestly say that if you see Masha you won’t be disappointed.
