I qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2003, having trained with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis. In addition, I have trained in EMDR and am an EFT Practitioner. I am a full member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis and registered with the AMT and CNHC.
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 wellbeing.
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 relaxation and visualisation techniques, 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.
I work at three locations in North Somerset. The Mendip Suite, Mendip Vale Medical Practice, Langford. Bellissima, Langford and at my home in Winscombe. I can also visit people in their home if needed.
