Catherine Eland DHP HPD MNCH Acc Sup (Hyp)
I am a Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist, Supervisor and Senior Tutor at CPHT Leeds DHP HPD MNCH Acc Sup (Hyp).
I work from two informal clinics in Southport and Chorley. I practise a simple and modern hypnotherapy technique called Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. This approach differs from other methods of hypnotherapy by identifying the presenting problem and positively and swiftly facilitate change. The process is comfortable and simple and the you will feel in control, as we work together to achieve the changes needed. This approach offers you real hope to make your future life exactly as you wish it to be.
This cutting- edge therapy can help people with many familiar and unfamiliar problems. I work with difficult areas of depression, anxiety, panic attacks and OCD. Weight loss , sports performance and stopping smoking are other areas that can be addressed and can offer rewarding results.
The vital start to the process is the initial consultation, giving the client the time to explore the benefits of the therapy and giving me the chance to explain how I can help. The sessions are conducted professionally, confidentially and in a relaxed environment. A relaxation CD/ down load is given at this stage and that helps with confidence and aids sleeping. It is important the client listens to this between sessions to cement the therapeutic work.
I have had significant success with weight loss clients. I offer a 'slow burn', long term approach, and a 'fast burn', for those who need a quick pre- holiday boost or a helping hand with the diet.
My background is in Radiography and Mammography. I have been a radiographer for over 15 years specialising in symptomatic Mammography in the Lancashire Breast.
I am a member of the National Hypnotherapy Society and the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and abide by their strict code of standards and ethics. I am also a member of The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the Association of Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy(APHP) and the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapist (AfSFH).
