As a York-based Clinical Hypnotherapist. Why choose me?
Predominantly, based at one of York's longest established and most respected clinics, I offer fantastic flexibility with late evening and weekend availability (Until 9 pm on Tuesday and Thursday, alternate Saturday's until 2 pm).
There are a team of complementary therapists based at York Clinic and a number of professional Psychologists, Psychotherapists, and Counsellors, should I feel your needs might be better suited by their professional expertise, then I will make that introduction.
I'm also about to open an additional clinic in Heworth, York with details to follow.
Interested in what others have to say about me and my work?
It is easy to book an appointment through my online booking system.
Or, you may instead choose to arrange a complimentary telephone consultation to discuss your requirements and gain confidence in the positive results that I deliver.
Why I believe I can help you.
I have a range of skills to help my clients and I've invested thousands of pounds in my professional development. When I meet a client, together we choose what will work best for them, rather than adopting a 'one size' fits all approach, after all, we are all unique.
At my disposal, I have Clinical Hypnotherapy, Neuro-linguistic Programming and my skills as a Motivation Therapist and Coach. I'm qualified at an Advanced Level for Hypnotherapy (NQF 6) within my professional body of the General Hypnotherapy Register. I combine the skills I've developed as a Clinical Hypnotherapists and those gained as a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to help my clients.
Often people come and see me after struggling with issues for years, having found my profile it would be great if you became one of the growing numbers that say "I wished I had found your help sooner".
What will you say, after we resolve whatever has led you to read my profile?
Where I can help.
My aim is to become one of the UK's most trusted and recommended Clinical Hypnotherapists, and this can only be achieved by delivering great results, with care, compassion and understanding.
I am a member of both the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR). I trained and subsequently gained my professional qualifications (Dip.C.Hyp/NLP) with one of the UK’s leading trainers in Hypnotherapy and Neuro-linguistic programming. My initial trainer Matthew Ferguson has both trained and worked with Olympic athletes, Doctors, and numerous other medical professionals, and he has shared over 25 years’ experience of Hypnosis and Clinical Hypnotherapy with myself. I've since gone on to complete my Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy (NQF 6) with The Academy of Advanced Changework and Paul Peace PhD and Karen Bartle MSc.
Here is a list of the areas where more commonly hypnosis can resolve both short and long-term issues:
Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD), Habits, Weight Management, Fears & Phobias, Jealousy, Confidence, Anger Management, Sleep, Self-esteem, Eating and Addiction.
This is not an exhaustive list and please get in touch to explore how I can help you.
What to expect from the first session.
An initial session lasts for 90 minutes. I always offer my clients a cup of tea or coffee, and there is also always plenty of filtered water available. My office overlooks the Knavesmire and is extremely comfortable, spacious and situated in a Grade II listed building. (There are photos within my profile).
There will be a step by step explanation of what to expect at each stage and the great news is, you will have complete control over your level of relaxation. I will work to facilitate this relaxation and the positive changes you wish to make, and we will work at a speed to suit you and we are only making the changes you would like.
Your comfort and safety are paramount, I'm confident you will be pleasantly surprised by just how relaxing Hypnotherapy can be and just how effective it will be in helping deliver the positive lasting change you wish for.
Whilst in this deeply relaxed state, you will be aware of your surroundings, be able to hear the sound of my voice and I will play some music which helps enhance the experience.
Many times in your life you will have been in an eyes open state of hypnosis, whilst watching a film or when driving and arriving at your destination without quite remembering the journey. There are many myths and misconceptions about hypnosis and I will dispel any that you might have.
