Audrey will be genuinely supportive. She is a highly-trained CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPIST who is registered and complies with the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis's standards and ethics. Holding respected certificates in NLP and LIFE COACHING she draws on these additional 'agent-of change' skills for her clients' benefit. NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and Life Coaching grew from the study of hypnotherapy, language, excellence, and sports coaching. Audrey previously worked as a speech and language therapist (NHS) improving people's communication and behaviour. As mentioned in the testimonial below, she brings a professional approach and assures individual clients a personalised treatment plan.
What is hypnotherapy? Hypnosis?
Hypnotherapy aims to tackle a variety of medical and social conditions (see below). The Positive Psychology approach that Audrey favours has been shown to increase levels of mental well-being (Lewis 2015). Using relaxation and suggestion techniques to ease you into a trance, "hypnosis" helps you to access your store of unconscious resourcefulness. Be reassured that it is not stage hypnosis! We all go into trance naturally in our day-to-day lives, e.g. when day-dreaming, and we remain in control of ourselves throughout. Audrey combines hypnosis and techniques from all the main schools of therapeutic approaches to engage your conscious mind (e.g. person-centered counselling, Gestalt, CBT techniques, regression). New insights, recognitions and the development of new neural pathways bring about changes to thoughts, feelings and habits.
Hypnotherapy is commonly used to aid weight management, anxiety and stress related problems, smoking cessation, sleep problems, low mood, IBS, stammering, phobias, public speaking, performance (such as exam study / driving test / sports achievement), recovery from injury/illness, tinnitus and more. It can be used to release creativity. Audrey's introduction to hypnotherapy many years ago was the successful relief of a condition that her GP offered no cure. She continues to use self-hypnosis and visualisation for physical and mental well-being and sports achievement.
If you have any questions about hypnotherapy or its suitability for you or your condition, please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can send an email using the contact form (above) or phone 075 548 54321. Please note that sessions for Hypnotherapy / NLP are usually at Mulberry House Complementary Health Care Clinic in the West End of Edinburgh. Sports performance may be done in situ. Life coaching is possible by phone or Skype. Further details are on Audrey's Summit website www.summitlifecoaching.co.uk

Audrey likes to ensure hypnotherapy is right for you and to personalise the service by talking by phone in advance of the first appointment. This is free.
A typical first appointment involves taking a case history and teaches self-hypnosis if appropriate. If appropriate and you have a suitable phone, the trance section of the appointment will be recorded for use at home. (1.5 - 2 hours; £90) Thereafter appointments are typically an hour (£60).
Typically 3 - 5 appointments are needed.
Please expect to have an odd task or two to do between appointments.
Note that reduced fees may be available for students/other - please ask.
Sports coaching with hypnotherapy and NLP is available in situ (Central Scotland) - fee to be discussed.

Congratulations to Christine in Dunfermline. Hypnotherapy and NLP for weight-management helped her reach her lowest weight in 25 years in 5 appointments.
"Throughout my adult life my weight has been an issue and it had risen to a level that I had to do something to get it under control. I had tried every diet you can think of and knew that for me losing weight was complex; more than just counting calories. That's when I heard through a friend about Audrey and her methods to assist in addressing the issues in my life that contributed to comfort eating. From our first session I found Audrey to be excellent at putting me at ease, listening and identifying the areas in my life that needed attention. Through the use of hypnotherapy and NLP she gave me the confidence to confront, to deal with my anxieties and to help with weight-loss. So far I have lost nearly 3 stone with her help and understanding. She goes that extra mile for you and gets the results that you set out to achieve."
