A Time For You
Hello, my name is Tina Deas and I am a therapist at A Time For You which conveniently based in my therapy room in west Swindon with plenty of parking and on a main bus route from the town centre. As well as being a registered Hypnotherapist, I am also a BACP accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with 10 years experience, a Reiki Master/Practitioner and a certified EFT and NLP Practitioner.
My core training and skill as a Counsellor underpins all of the work that I do and It enables me to effectively gain a deep understanding of you and the issues that you have when you come to see me. I use Hypnotherapy, as a tool which can help you to access your inner resources and potential, your innate healing ability and to help you to effect the positive changes that to want to make. You can enjoy feeling calm and deeply relaxed during treatment yet you will still remain in control. In my experience, I find that Hypnotherapy works well with Reiki. Reiki is a hands-on energy healing treatment which is deeply relaxing and beneficial. By combining the two therapies you can have a deeply relaxing energy boost as well as doing some of the deeper work with the Hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy can be very helpful for panic, fear and anxiety - being deeply relaxed is beneficial in itself if you suffer from any of these or anxiety and stress related physical problems such as IBS and migraines. Hypnotherapy can also help to prepare you for upcoming stressful events such as driving tests and can help with many other current and past issues too.
I completely understand that it may feel daunting to take this step to seek professional help, especially if its for the first time or if you have previously experienced help that has not been enough for you, It is absolutely normal to experience a level of anxiety before doing something new or before something that has previously been difficult for you - this is called "anticipatory anxiety". As a very experienced counsellor, I can help you to feel at ease and understood in a safe and confidential space where you will feel enabled to talk about and explore any issues that you want to bring.
I offer either 1 hour or 1.5 hour session. You can have a standalone therapy or a combination of therapies in one session/treatment plan (time permitting and where applicable)
I offer daytime, evening sessions during the week and some Saturday mornings
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Registered member of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)
I qualified as a counsellor in 2005 and became accredited with the BACP in 2008. You can find me on their official register.
I have a wide range of counselling experience working with individuals, couples and therapeutic groups and I have worked in the drug and alcohol field, for the NHS in GP Surgeries, as a partner in private practice for 6 years. I taught counselling skills to adults at New College as a part time lecturer for 5 years. Now, I work independently as a therapist in my own private practice, A Time For You, Counselling & Reiki, Swindon.
As well as a Counsellor, I am a Reiki Master/Teacher and Practitioner a certified EFT Practitioner, a Registered and Accredited Hypnotherapist (GHR) and a certified NLP Practitioner.
I began to realise that counselling had its limitations and as I became more and more interested in the "bodymind" and how emotional pain and negative thinking can lead to physical symptoms, pain and illness, I decided that I wanted to offer clients a more holistic approach to healing. I initially trained in Reiki healing in 2008 to get relief from my own chronic neck pain after other treatments has failed. Self healing with Reiki relieved my neck problem strengthening my belief that our "bodymind" is an integrated system. By treating myself with Reiki my emotional trauma, held energetically and blocking my own energy flow, causing my physical pain and suffering were released and my neck pain went away.
Continuing in the field of energy I then trained in Emotional Freedom Technique. EFT is sometimes call acupuncture without the needles and is a quick, painless and effective way to free negative emotions such as anxiety, depression, fears and phobias which can keep clients locked into their problems.
Taking EFT one step further and using a new concept called Matrix Reimprinting with clients helps them to rewrite old traumas and free them from the emotional intensity that is held in our sub-conscious.
Always trying to offer more to clients and being very committed to my continued professional development I then went on to complete a dual Diploma in Hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) which are the latest additional tools to add to my integrated therapeutic approach.
I am passionate about my work as a therapist and how I can offer the best help I can to facilitate my clients to heal at a deep level. I am very pleased to be able to integrate all of my unique skill set as and when required and to offer you a treatment plan that recognises your "body/mind" as being one.
