Dawn Bissell. RN, Dip Integ Coun, HPD, D.Hyp, MBACP (Accred), MNCH (Reg).
I provide hypnotherapy to adults of 16 years and above. As your Hypnotherapist (and Counsellor) I will listen, support and work with you in order to help facilitate the changes you want to make.
Hypnosis is a natural and effective technique for unleashing our potential, changing our unwanted habits and behaviours and finding solutions to our problems and concerns. I use a variety of theories and strategies while you are in trance, which I mix and match depending on what your worries are, what you want to achieve, how you process things and your personality. I then adapt each session in order for you to gain insight, movement and to help you achieve your goals.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked in the NHS for over 30 years. I started my career as a Registered General Nurse. I moved on from physical care to psychological care by training as an Integrative Counsellor as I wanted to make more of a difference to people’s lives, to have time to talk to them, to empower them to make changes in their lives. I chose to train in three different theories in Counselling; Person Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as we are all unique and one theory doesn’t fit us all.
I believe that we all have the resources to help ourselves we just need time, space and some motivation to work it all out. In order to help us tap into our inner resources and the subconscious mind I further trained in Clinical Hypnotherapy, in different theories; Solution Focused, CBT and Ericksonian in order to complement my counselling. Hypnotherapy enables me to tackle some issues that counselling cannot always get too and vice versa.
In order to be able to carry out more short term work I have further trained in Solution Focused, Transactional Analysis (TA), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and I am a Mindfulness Practitioner.
