I'm Andy and I have been interested in how and why people change for about ten years now.
The way I work is unique to each person, for example some want structure and goals whilst others prefer a spontaneous approach.
I believe a mix of support and challenge is helpful, as well as awareness and empathy.
The language I use and how I talk can facilitate a trance state which is similar to daydreaming. In this state you can access material which may be previously inaccessible and generate new resources for yourself.
I have a number of techniques that can be helpful, working with metaphor using Clean Language for example, and use them should the opportunity arise.
You can meet me for a short introduction to see if I'm suitable, this is free of charge but would become the first paid session if you stay for the hour. I offer this because I think it's crucial to find a therapist you can work with, and I think you usually know pretty quickly.
I practice from my home in Loughton, Essex (North East London)
Parking is available and I am a few minutes walk from Loughton Underground Station.
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied Clinical Hypnosis (DipHE). The course provided a practical and scientific grounding in many hypnotic techniques and specialised therapeutic applications.
I studied Philosophy at Nottingham University and apply my learnings from that course in my therapeutic techniques.
I have attended multiple workshops on Parts Therapy and trained with the creator of Clean Language, I find the methods taught in them very effective to facilitate change, acceptance, and growth.
