Audrey Scott PG Cert, BSc - Summit Hypnotherapy, NLP and Life Coaching
I am Audrey and run Summit Life Coaching Ltd with Hypnotherapy and NLP. I'm keen to support your positive change and offer you a free phone consultation. Please phone or email in the first instance.
I am a highly-trained clinical hypnotherapist who complies with the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis's standards and ethics. Holding respected certificates in NLP and life coaching, I draw on these additional 'agent-of change' skills for clients' benefit.
I previously worked as a speech and language therapist (NHS) improving people's communication and behaviour. As mentioned in the testimonial below, I bring a professional approach and assure individual clients a personalised treatment plan.
Hypnotherapy aims to tackle a variety of medical eg anxiety, and social conditions (please see list below) and I also uses generative trance for business/creativity. A positive, well-defined future goal is used as a starting point although analytical techniques including regression are incorporated when needed. The Positive Psychology approach that I favour has been shown to increase levels of mental well-being. Using relaxation and Ericksonian suggestion techniques, hypnosis helps you to access your store of unconscious resourcefulness. I combine hypnosis with techniques from all the main schools of therapeutic approaches to engage your conscious mind (e.g. person-centered counselling, Gestalt, CBT techniques) and NLP activities. New insights, recognitions and the development of new neural pathways bring about changes to thoughts, feelings and unwanted habits or behaviours.
My introduction to hypnotherapy many years ago was the successful relief of a condition when my GP offered no cure. I continues to use self-hypnosis and visualisation for physical and mental well-being. I am a sports enthusiast.
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 Mind & Body Health Centre 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

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."
