I served in the RAF during which time I learned that you don’t achieve anything worthwhile by staying in your comfort zone. The first time I was required to give a briefing was nerve racking to say the least, but I got through it and giving briefings became the norm. Over the years I coached and encouraged the younger airman and airwomen working with me to step outside their comfort zones and push themselves to do bigger, better and greater things. Often overcoming fears, anxieties or other difficulties to achieve their goals. I always reminded them that the only way to find out if you can do it is to try it ans asking for help when you need it isn't a weakness. It's just using resources and there's nothing wrong with that. Adding that if they fail, failure just means you need to change something for the next attempt. Learn, adjust and try again. I learnt what motivates people and how to apply that motivation to individuals in a way that is neither forceful nor dishonest, but allows them to prepare for and achieve their full potential. I always enjoyed helping others achieve and so when I came to leave the RAF I decided to follow my ambition and become a hypnotherapist and help others achieve their goals in both their personal and or professional lives.
My military experience along with my Diplomas in Hypnotherapy and EMDR puts me in an ideal situation to help you make that change in your life that you want. Goals and dreams that may seem beyond your grasp may well be easily within your capabilities. Whether you want to stop smoking, conquer a fear, get over anxiety, or you suffer from PTSD or much more, I can help you make that change and change your life for the positive. As we are all individuals, generic approaches only work so far and so all sessions are tailored to the individual to ensure you have optimum success.
Why am I so passionate about hypnotherapy!
The first book I read about hypnotherapy, I picked up in out of curiosity while killing time in a book shop way back in 1990. I was immediately gripped and need to know more and so bought that book. Over the years I read many books on the subject and it clear to me that hypnotherapy can help many people who just can't seem to resolve their issues through other methods. I decided that hypnotherapy was how I wanted to earn my living when the time was right.
Once my children had grown and the time looked right for a career change, took a diploma in hypnotherapy and counselling skills. I chose one of the longest hypnotherapy course I came across. Entailing 8 essays, 2 practical pass or fail assessments, 3 full case studies and at least 50 hours of verified practice. All designed to show a good understanding of hypnosis and how to use it for hypnotherapy purposes. I could of course, completed a much shorter course but there is no substitute for good training. Working together I am confident we can do great things and bring about the change you want.
I have continued to train, undergoing regular constant professional development including a diploma in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). A very effective tool when combined with hypnotherapy.
