Hello, my name is Leonora Brooker and I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I truly believe that you have the ability to change anything in your life that is currently holding you back and preventing you from experiencing life as a happy, confident, optimistic and balanced human being.
I know this may seem like a bold statement or even a complete impossibility. Especially if your mind is full of negative thinking, or self doubt.
Perhaps you've been experiencing anxiety and seem to be in a constant state of acute stress, a cycle that you can't seem to get out of.
You may possibly have developed some self sabotaging habits or addictions like over-eating, smoking or gambling.
Your relationships or career may be full of challenge and a source of discontent or unhappiness.
We can all get a bit stuck or lost from time to time. Whatever your own personal situation is right now, the most important thing for you to know is, that if it's causing you a problem, it really doesn't have to stay that way.
As an integrative therapist, I can use a combination of therapeutic tools such as hypnotherapy, NLP, counselling, life coaching and psychotherapy to help free you from any of these unwanted conditions. Remember you weren't born this way. These are things that you've learned or produced as you have progressed through life and as such can be changed, improved or completely eliminated.
My sessions are two hours long which means they are lengthier than the norm. I work in this way because it allows you to feel very comfortably at ease without the need to clock watch, which I personally believe is very important and beneficial. It also means of course, that we can cover a lot of valuable ground. I feel that we live in a very 'time starved' society these days, so maybe it's just my way of fighting back!
So if there is something in your life that is not working well for you and you feel ready to make some positive changes, please give me a call on 01206 683069 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can have a chat. Please feel free to ask as many questions as you can think of. I understand that it can be a little bit daunting and it's really important to me that you feel comfortable.
Training, qualifications & experience
During my training I have had the opportunity to study with some of the best in this field.
I am a Master Practioner of NLP, having trained extensively with Richard Bandler (co-developer of NLP) and Paul McKenna.
I trained with SACH - The School oh Analytical & Cognitive Hypnotherapy and hold an Avanced Qualification in Hypnotherapy, Hypnoanalysis, Psychotherapy & Counselling.
I am a certified Life Coach, having been trained at Newcastle College.
I am a qualified teacher in Adult and Further Education, awarded by City & Guilds.
I also hold a diploma in Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy, awarded by the Hypnotism Training Institute in California.
I am also trained to use a number of other therapeutic models including EMDR, EFT and Past Life Regression.
I belong to the following professional associations which are bound by a strict code of practice and ethics of the highest order.
MHA - Member of the Hypnotherapy Association
SQHP - Senior Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice
GHR Reg. - General Hypnotherapy Register
CNHC - Complimentary & Natural Healthcare Council
These associations also insist on Continued Professional Development which is something I have always really believed in. New discoveries are constantly being made and new interventions continue to be developed, which is really exciting and means that as a therapist I can continue to add more tools to my toolbox.
I have been a therapist for over 16 years now and I can honestly say that I love what I do. I still experience the same delight when I see people make such positive changes in their lives. I also feel very privileged and extremely appreciative that they have trusted me enough to guide them through their journey. I am very aware that for some, it has taken a great deal of courage. I also can confirm that their decisive action has been very worthwhile.
