I am a clinical professionally qualified Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist, based in Bromyard and able to offer a new method of Hypnotherapy combined with proven Neuroscience, Solution Focused Therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
My past experience in HR, Training, Coaching and Counselling has given me the opportunity to encourage and support others, so that they are able to meet their own goals and aspirations.
Stress and anxiety can manifest itself in various ways; this may include panic attacks, depression, fears, and phobias. Anxiety may display itself indirectly through obsessive compulsive disorder, skin and eating disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia and many other conditions if not treated professionally.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses practical, modern and well-researched strategies to help clients make significant, positive changes to their lives in a relatively short period of time. The approach focuses on the present and future and not on the past. I work with clients to consider their preferred future, for instance, what would be better if the problem had improved? What would have changed? This enables the client’s possible solutions to become more apparent and worked towards. Hypnosis itself reduces anxiety and this is done very simply through relaxation and visualization, allowing the client to focus on the positive aspects of their lives that encourage a shift in perspective.
This type of treatment can help with Confidence and Self-Esteem problems. It can also help (if necessary in conjunction with medication) in the treatment of Depression, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Agoraphobia and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Plus phobias such as spiders, water, flying and public speaking can also be minimised, along with painful memories and traumatic experiences.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have achieved a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma and a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.
My experience as a Solution Focused Clinical Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist, and in life generally, has shown me time and time again how very easy it can be to hugely change our lives for the better by taking just small steps towards achieving what we want to achieve.
I trained as a clinical hypnotherapist and psychotherapist through the highly acclaimed Clifton Practice in Bristol. I have undertaken further training in hypnotherapy for helping people with eating disorders, undertaking chemotherapy and helping to take the stress out of childbirth. Also, I have studied and adapted the use of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming).
Many of my clients come to me for help with high levels of anxiety, stress, depression, and other related symptoms to include: Panic Attacks Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Fears and Phobias, Weight Loss and insomnia.
