MY APPROACH

I start by listening to you and help you achieve your goals efficiently and effectively.

I often use coaching for a practical route to changing behaviour. I also draw on Solution-Focused, Ericksonian and Cognitive-Behavioural hypnotherapies, and Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP).

Research supports treating our wellbeing as a system so I encourage clients to consider links between thoughts, feelings, the body and nutrition.

Everything discussed is kept in strict confidence.

WHO AM I 

My prior professional experience includes journalism and teaching ballroom dance – providing insight into relating to people on an individual level and from all walks of life.

And having lived abroad, I enjoy meeting people from different cultures and lifestyles, from traditional to alternative. I am LGBT friendly.

I was bulimic as a teenager so I am familiar with emotional challenges and therapy from the client point of view. I have had lot of hypnotherapy myself.

WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE:

(Important – Do not listen to this if driving or when you need to concentrate)

Hypnotherapy

 

Hypnotherapy is

… an age-old therapy, supported by clinical evidence. It is natural and safe.

… about harnessing the resources we already have.

…discussion, looking at things from different perspectives, visualisation and relaxation.

… a cooperation between the therapist and client.

 

Hypnotherapy isn’t

… about me controlling your mind or willpower. You always have control and you are an active participant.

… what you often see on TV or in films…

… a magic cure, but it can be fun.

 

What it can be used for

…adding positives to, and removing negatives from, your life. It can help: 

-Our body:

Pain control, healing (e.g. skin, intestinal, blood pressure issues), achieving sports goals, surgery preparation, sexual issues, IBS;

-Our habits:

Smoking cessation, hair pulling, overeating, self-sabotage;

-Our fears:

Phobias, confidence, sexual issues;

-Our hindrances:

Insomnia, fear of public speaking, procrastination, inferiority complexes, performance anxieties, anxiety, panic attacks, past traumas, depression;

-Our goals:

Weight loss, stress management, improved academic, sporting or work performance, speed reading, accelerated learning, using the mind-body connection.

How it works

Free, confidential initial consultation – A brief phone call so I can get a feel for the issue and how I can help, and you a chance to see if I am right for you.

Structure of the sessions – All sessions include  talking, coaching and relaxation.We might also do some other mental exercises and discuss possible self-hypnosis, mindfulness, or other exercises you can do on your own.

After the session – you can continue on with your day refreshed and alert.

The hypnosis – physical and mental relaxation followed by visualisation exercises.  It is enjoyable, natural and safe.

The experience can vary – you might stay conscious of the room and my voice, drift off somewhere else, or do both. It is often like daydreaming or the feeling just before/after sleep.

You don’t need to wear special clothes. Some people enjoy lying down during the hypnosis, others like to sit with their feet up.
