IN PERSON & ON-LINE SESSIONS AVAILABLE - Over 18 years of experience in hypnotherapy, EFT & EMDR. Specialising in PTSD. Help with anxiety, stress, phobias, sleep issues, IBS, OCD and children's anxieties.
I qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2003 with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis. In addition, I have trained in EMDR and am an EFT Practitioner. I am a member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis and registered with the CNHC and AMT. I hold a DBS Enhanced Certificate for working with children.
We all have good and bad experiences in our lives and quite commonly a negative event, or series of events cause us to form negative beliefs about ourselves or a situation. This can then lead to a cycle of unhelpful patterns of thinking and feeling. Over time, stress and anxiety can build and have a general negative effect on our mental, physical and emotional well-being.
I use a combination of hypnotherapy, EFT & EMDR to help both adults and children alleviate whatever problem or issue is currently causing them difficulty or distress in their everyday lives. Supporting people through a relaxing process of positive change. Helping them to release negative feelings, beliefs and unhelpful negative responses and so alleviate associated emotional stress. Using relaxing hypnosis I help people to focus on their positive inner resources to promote personal growth and a more optimistic outlook. This enables people to feel more confident and in control. This process of gentle, positive change naturally reduces stress and anxiety, releases unwanted habits and creates a more positive focus.
