Anxiety and panic disorders are debilitating conditions that can have a number of life limiting symptoms, dizziness, nausea, racing heartbeat, sweating, wanting to run away, feelings of not being able to breathe.
Social Anxiety Are you fearful in social situations? Do you worry what others think? Do you avoid social activities? Are you worried others are judging you? Do you sit quietly in the corner, afraid to say anything in case it's wrong or people won't be interested, or worry you'll make a fool of yourself?
Do you want to to feel confident and not worry what others think, do you want to enjoy and look forward to going to social gatherings?
Using Hypno - CBT I can help you build your resilience and manage your stress/anxiety more effectively and challenge negative thoughts.

I have frontline experience and am aware of the stresses and anxieties that the emergency services endure, my understanding of the stress experienced by the ambulance service personnel as well as other emergency service personnel gives me a unique insight into how to help treat difficult issues that you may have experienced.

Integrated into my training is the use of mindfulness and Self-awareness Exercises (from Gestalt Therapy/Mindfulness-based CBT) Helping clients become more aware of their thoughts, emotions, sensations and behaviour.
I have a Diploma in Psychodynamic counselling and have a keen interest in how our thoughts and behaviours are connected, through seeing clients I have experienced how changing our thoughts and behaviour can change our lives dramatically.

WHAT TO EXPECT
I can assure you that the consultation and all details that are given are totally confidential, and if there is something that you are not comfortable discussing I am sympathetic to your concerns.
The first session will entail getting information about the issue you wish to overcome, I will need to get a brief history of the issue, and complete some questionnaires relating to medical history and any medication that you are currently taking.
How hypnotherapy works and goal setting, any questions that you may have regarding the treatment.
It is unlikely that during the first assessment we will be able to experience any hypnosis due to time constraints.
Flexible appointments, some evening and Saturday availability
