The Coach House
I am a qualified Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist and I work from a calm and peaceful location between Keynsham and Queen Charlton which is mid-way between Bristol and Bath. I have over 30 years’ experience of working therapeutically with children young people and families in a local authority setting. My practice is based on many years of understanding the difficulties we can face when pressures get on top of us and when we get trapped in unhelpful cycles which reinforce negative behaviours and thought patterns. From both my personal and my professional knowledge I am passionate in my belief that with the appropriate support it is possible to create significant positive change in the areas of our lives that are most important to us, within relatively short timescales.
Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapy combines practical and clinically proven strategies with a scientific understanding of how the brain works. It reduces anxiety very simply by using a process of relaxation and visualization, allowing us to focus on the positive aspects of our lives and on the goals we want to achieve.
I can help with a wide range of areas and some of these include:
- treatment of fears and phobias including social anxiety disorder (social phobia)
- treatment of depression
- helping people to understand and manage their anger
- anxiety and its associated symptoms such as lack of self confidence and low self esteem
- addictions including smoking and weight control
- hypnotherapy with children and teenagers
I also specialise in Hypno-Birthing/Natural Childbirth (please see my website for more detail)
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist and I trained at The Clifton Hypnotherapy Practice, which is a recognised accredited Centre of Excellence in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy and a leading UK government recognised teaching authority.
I hold a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy (DHP) and the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), which is the first nationally accredited hypnotherapy qualification, awarded by the NCFE and is considered to be the gold standard in hypnotherapy training.
I am a qualified Social Worker with many years of experience of working therapeutically with children, young people and families.
I am registered with the National Council for Hypnotherapy, the General Hypnotherapy Register, the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, the Complimentary and National Healthcare Council and the Health & Care Professions Council. I work to the ethics and codes of conduct of these organisations which means that my practice is responsible and accountable.
I attend frequent supervision sessions, courses and workshops to keep up to date and increase my knowledge base.
