I am one of Manchester's leading private therapists based in the city centre with my own busy clinic of holistic therapists. I also provide coaching and therapy to London based clients in Marylebone.
I specialise in Anxiety based issues. Working with me will help you achieve more confidence, remove unwanted symptoms and find new faster ways to achieve relaxation. To do this, I use modern and traditional techniques.
Please note: Choosing a therapist is very important. I appreciate how confusing it often is when faced with lists of options. A few things to consider - experience, results and training. Personally I have over 7 years experience with paid clients that has built to a regular full time business in two cities both with private clients and corporate businesses. I am also trained to the highest level in NLP, in TFT to Voice Technology level and am also a certified and qualified Havening therapist. Other therapists I encounter in CPD or trainings are working only part time or supplementing their income and also often have issues of their own. I see a lot of therapists as clients! This is my full time dedicated vocation and I am successful for a reason - I work very hard for you and what I do has a high success rate. My new client waiting list varies from 2-4 weeks and clients typically come for between 1 and 3 sessions.
As I specialise in Anxiety Based Issues, this is what I tend to encounter: In my experience Anxiety, stress, AND PTSD are fully treatable. Anxiety is a behavioural response that you have learnt how to do rapidly. The good news is that there is a lot we can do now. This solution for you may include an approach such as Hypnosis other techniques that you may not have heard of in the public awareness and these cutting edge techniques allow me to work with you the most effectively.
In my experience Smoking and addiction, has its roots in anxiety and coded stress and trauma.
Weight and body issues including emotional eating - in my experience have their roots in negative emotions and negative self beliefs. We can work together to not only remove causes to the relationship with foods and your own self esteem. We can build your confidence, work on the skills you require to really go forward in life with better control and real tools that will help you get more of what you actually want in your life in the absence of these problems.
Phobias are coded events where your amygdala has 'coded' the event. This can be rapidly relieved with modern neuroscience techniques such as Havening (with an NLP approach) which work to produce delta wave remove the PKMZeta like enzyme holding the coding in place in the amygdala. More can be discovered about this technique at their site www.havening.org. (its advised to only seek fully qualified and certified therapists in havening that are on their website).
You are noticing unwanted symptoms - There is a reason why you are getting those. The symptoms and what I would refer to as the 'surface issue' you are aware of, is quite probably being triggered by a learning in your unconscious. Then from that learning, subsequent program you are running automatically in the unconscious and that the level that I work. I believe it working as close to the root cause as possible to make changes at that level so you also don't recreate the problem. Hypnosis communicates to the unconscious mind directly - where you are running the problem! That's why it has a higher success rate than other modalities such as CBT.
I'm a Master Practitioner of Hypnosis and of NLP. NLP (Neuroscience Linguistic Programming) is an approach that helps me understand what you are doing and how. It helps me communicate even more effectively with the part of you, the sub-conscious / Unconscious mind (they refer to the same thing) that is indeed running this problem of yours. The skill is in how to communicate with the unconscious and just knowing how to elicit a trance state in you as a client isn't enough. Its important that we are as targeted as possible to why you are choosing to do it so this can be changed ecologically, so helps us achieve a more effective session result.
I am also a certified Master Hypnotherapist and Coach. For those clients who following therapy require future based coaching to move them forwards beyond the problem, my coaching skills are often used to help you achieve more and get back on track.
What Will Happen When You Come To See Me?
I will take a lot of notes from you to learn about your problem - Before the session -usually in a phone consultation lasting between 30 minutes to an hour or so which is totally free. My aim for you is to work thoroughly and as effectively to create the most lasting positive change. I believe and see results in my clients that show reduced therapy times and increased efficacy meaning you can live the life you want to live sooner.
You will then come to the session fully relaxed knowing that I have answered all the questions you had and you might also enjoy it!
Please note that my session slots work best for the client and is up to 2hrs for a standard session. I also offer blocks of work up to a full day and this can very much depend on a bespoke session according to how soon you want the problem resolved.
The methods I use and have trained in allow me to work where the problem is running - in your subconscious mind and how you internally represent the problem at this level is important. Neuro Lingustic Programming along with hypnosis and other techniques create an abundance of flexibility and have improved my success rate significantly than when I used hypnosis alone.
I work with a core of the following problems and then complex off shoots of these also come from clients wanting to explore other issues when they find success with the combined techniques.
Though I often deal with many differing issues
Common problems include:
- Trauma (inc PTSD)
- Panic Attacks
- Weight Loss/ Emotional eating
- Smoking Cessation
I offer a FREE Skype or phone consultation worth over £50 and this can also be arranged for video Please call or email and I can book you in for this initial session, to learn about you, answer questions you may have and explain how I can help you.
My methods are designed to specifically focus on you and to get you to where you want to be.
I do this by using my unique pre-session system and I provide you with an online questionnaire to enable me to fully personalise my service to how you are experiencing the problem right now. This is how I consistently achieve the level of success rate and results I do. There is never a guarantee and importantly any therapist offering you one should be treated with caution. Every client is different. I find that those clients willing to let go of the problem and make positive changes, who can follow simple instructions given to them in the session achieve the best results!
By providing a variety of modalities to treat you with, it gives me enormous flexibility too, as your uniqueness requires a uniqueness of approach.
My style of coaching takes into consideration your specific goal and the result you want with the time we have available to us. I look for causes and aim to empower you giving you the tools to help yourself too when you are on your own going forward in life.
My clients know that I also offer client confidentiality and will not discuss them or their therapy. There is also the option in both cities to easily bypass any reception and have complete privacy.
I trained as an Actress graduating from the 3 year Acting course at RADA in 1997 the working successfully in the industry for the RSC, National Theatre, BBC, ITV, Film 4 and many other companies.
This background works very well helping clients wanting to make improvements to public speaking and confidence - along with NLP Hypnosis skill sets I can offer a lot in this department. I work especially effectively with Stage Fright for clients.
Many of these techniques are available for my clients all over the world via Skype. Call or email to enquire. Skype methods that are proving particularly popular for those have difficulty leaving the house with young children, experiencing OCD, heightened anxiety or are in another part of the country, you can still benefit from the same level of treatment in the comfort of your own home.
I appeared on BBC Radio as their 'expert coach and therapist' coaching clients for positive change in 2017 and discussing my approach and my work.
I trained and am qualified in Havening Techniques, a new psycho-sensory neuroscience approach to stress at the first UK conference under the founder and renowned neuroscientist and Harvard internist, Ronald Ruden MD.
I am fully qualified to treat clients in this amazing method to rapidly reduce uncomfortable emotions and feelings. This method is superb with anxiety based issues including PTSD Trauma and addictive behaviours. I find as a hypnotist, that Havening works very well when combined with hypnotherapy and NLP, used by Paul McKenna in this combination, who also trained with Dr Ronald Ruden in Havening.
I am CNHC and MNCH registered Hypnotherapist and abide by their code of conduct. Not every hypnotherapist is trained to a standard whereby they can register. Please check the training of the therapist you seek to work with. If anyone offers you a guarantee please look elsewhere - as guarantees don't exist in any area of mental health and already that therapist is not being honest with you.
There can be no and are no guarantees for good reason. Anyone who offers you a guarantee should be viewed with caution.
