Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I am a qualified and experienced Hypnotherapist and Counsellor who treats a wide range of issues to include anxiety, stress and depression, weight loss, stopping smoking (completed in 2 sessions), panic attacks, low self confidence, fears and phobias (including flying, driving, heights, claustrophobia, agoraphobia, giving presentations etc), pain relief, anger management, teeth grinding, insomnia, fertility issues, exam and driving test confidence, sports performance, general relaxation and much more.
I am passionate about helping people to take control of their lives so they can live as happily, calmly and productively as possible. I understand how negative habits and behaviours can limit your life but there really is no need to suffer unnecessary stress or anxiety - if you are open to hypnotherapy and really want to make changes to your life then you CAN replace old, unwanted behaviours with new, desired responses.
I know how hard it can be to seek help for life's difficulties and so I am glad that you have taken this first step of looking for a therapist to suit you. I give all my clients a warm and non judgemental welcome and I am happy to offer a free 15 minute consultation so that you can meet with me and discuss how hypnotherapy can be effective for you. No therapy will take place at this meeting and you are under no obligation to take matters further. However if you do wish to make changes to your life, then I should be pleased to devise a programme of therapy to suit your particular needs.
Many people worry that they will not be able to control their responses under hypnotherapy or that they will find themselves in a zombie like state. Such reactions may appear to occur when hypnosis is used for stage entertainment but is far removed from what occurs during therapeutic hypnosis. I will simply talk to you in a way that will induce a deep state of relaxation. Once in this enjoyable state, you will remain fully in control but your subconscious mind will be open to any therapeutic suggestions made for your benefit. This can bring about significant changes to your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Hypnotherapy is a completely natural intervention which harnesses your inner resources to bring about positive changes to your emotional and psychological well-being. It tends to be quickly effective so that in many cases 2-4 sessions are sufficient. The first session lasts for up to 1 hour and 15 minutes and subsequent sessions usually take place on a weekly basis and last for 50-60 minutes. All sessions are charged at the rate of £50.
In addition to tackling any current issues, many clients choose to attend on a regular basis for pure relaxation, as a way of switching off from, and maintaining control over, any stresses in their life. I also offer "booster" sessions to complement and reinforce therapy undertaken previously.
I look forward to meeting with you and making effective changes for the better to improve your life now. After all, why wait any longer to be happier, calmer, more confident and in control? Please email or call me to book your free initial consultation.
