Geraldine Joaquim DSFH - Quest Hypnotherapy
I am passionate about what I do - we all deserve to live the life we want live and by identifying how to get there, it is possible to climb our personal Everest!
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis. It is a collaborative process - change happens because you want it to and you're prepared to take the necessary steps to allow it to happen. Hypnotherapy can help with a range of anxiety-based issues as well as habit changing ones such as quit smoking, weight management, etc.
I have helped a wide range of clients to overcome various issues including phobias, quit smoking, weight management, generalised anxiety, depression and stress management, and also hypnobirthing techniques working with couples.
