From time to time, we can become overwhelmed with life. This can manifest in many ways including anxiety, stress, panic attacks, disturbed sleep patterns, anger etc. I have always had a passion for helping people and this form of therapy helps to reduce the negative impact that stress can have on us. I specialise in anxiety and stress reduction for all ages which has the knock on benefit of improving sleep patterns. My passion is with the youth as they live with more pressure and challenges than ever. This is especially true for students facing exams which is why I have developed a exam preparation/stress reduction program for the youth. The Solution Focused approach works with your existing resources and helps you to unlock your true potential. I can't change the circumstance in your life but I can help you to think about them in a way that will help you to change the way you experience them. This will help you cope with and overcome your issues.
Think of hypnotherapy as a means of tapping into your unconscious mind, while awake and alert, in order to change negative thought patterns. Our mind is a powerful tool and I can teach you how to use it to your benefit, unlocking untapped potential. The beauty of this treatment is that it is a quick and effective means of transforming your life in a positive way that can result in lasting changes. You are in control at all times.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is forward looking and not regressive. This means that we don't need to delve into potentially painful past experiences in order for it to work. You are asked to focus on positive thoughts and keep your view on now and the immediate future. This can be a huge relief to people who feel trapped in the past and don't wish to discuss it but know that it is creating a barrier in their lives. Instead, this therapy aims to illuminate and tap into your existing strengths and resources. By doing this, I can help you to move forward positively. You will quickly learn how to change your thought patterns from negative to positive. This change of focus will help you to feel better.
I am a people person and for decades have enjoyed a role in empowering people to help them unlock their potential and reach their goals. There is more pressure in society today than ever before. It is unnecessarily driven by the media and peer groups. I enjoy working with clients where I can get them to relax and within a comfortable state of trance, come to life changing realisations that are both profound and empowering.
My firsthand experience of the power of hypnotherapy many years ago, led me to set up my own practice. It was an enriching and life changing experience for me. I believe in it so strongly, I want others to benefit as I have done over the years.
I understand the pressures a busy work environment can place on ones shoulders. Hypnotherapy helps you to manage stress and keep you calm. As a practitioner, I pride myself in my ability to tune into clients specific needs and to structure their sessions accordingly, ensuring maximum sensitivity and understanding for how they wish to move forward.
I was awarded my Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy at the renowned Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT) in Bristol. I also hold the nationally accredited Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma awarded through The National Council For Hypnotherapy (NCH). I abide by the code of ethics of both the NCH and The Association for Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy.
I work with a wide range of clients with a variety of issues. I specialise in sleep and stress solutions for all and exam preparation for the youth market. I have an excellent success rate in helping people overcome their issues and live a more relaxed and fulfilled life.
