About me

Suggestion Therapy (Clinical Hypnosis)
This therapy is ideally suited for simple problems such as smoking cessation, pre-test nerves, relaxation, slimming etc.
Suggestion work is very enjoyable and offers many positive benefits. When you achieve a state of relaxation your conscious mind will allow positive suggestions into your subconscious mind so that changes can happen.
A maximum of ONE or TWO sessions is sufficient for the above. However, it is NOT suitable for people suffering with phobias, anxiety, etc., as the effects for those conditions will be short-lived. In those situations a course of Regression to cause or Hypnoanalysis is recommended.

Regression to cause
Every problem began with a past experience. Sometimes we have no conscious memory of the original incident as it been repressed, but this does not mean it is not affecting us. Some incidents seem relatively minor when we access them through hypnotherapy because the younger we are, the more easily we are traumatised. Regression to cause therapy is a direct route to the source of the problem and it is therefore very successful for individuals who are "stuck" in a single area of their life. Identifying the cause of the incident can create change relatively easily and is particularly helpful for overcoming a phobia, reclaiming self-esteem and releasing unwanted behaviours.

Hypnoanalysis / free association
Hypnoanalysis is a useful approach for clients who are not aware of the original cause of their difficulties. The free association method helps to release emotional connections that have created the symptoms in the first place and, whilst the cause is not always obvious or even identified it is nevertheless neutralised, which leads to a profound positive change. When the emotions have been released, so too are the symptoms. It is particularly useful if a client presents with multiple problems which affects most areas of their life such as low self esteem, general anxiety or lack of confidence.
Regression to cause and Hypnoanalysis.

Both techniques are client centred therapies. The number of sessions required is dependent upon the client and their issues, though sessions can take as few as 3 appointments.

What is BrainWorking Recursive Therapy (BWRT®)?
BWRT® is a groundbreaking therapy that mirrors the way our brain operates to remove patterns that are preventing us from living life to the full.  Recent research shows that the brain has already processed our thoughts before our conscious mind is even aware of them. So when we are trying to address areas such as anxiety, stress, fears, phobias, relationship problems, confidence, and other negative or limiting habits, we often fail. BWRT® bypasses this problem by retraining the neuro-pathway of the brain’s patterns.

Advantages: This technique has numerous advantages over more traditional approaches including: Privacy: As most of us do not feel comfortable disclosing all of our private thoughts, I will work with you at a level where I will empower you to address the specific problem
Awareness: As this is a non-intrusive therapy, we will work together at a conscious level, so you will be completely aware of the process at all times
Immediacy: You will be surprised at how quickly you will notice the very positive feelings that BWRT® will bring about- usually after just one session!

Highly acclaimed and fully accredited:
BWRT® is based on groundbreaking research by Terence Watts, who is Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, the National Register of Advanced Hypnotherapists, the National Council for Hypnotherapy and the Royal Society for the Promotion of Health. Terence is also Founder/Chairman of the National Register for Psychotherapists and Counsellors and Principal of the Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy. He is a renowned international author.
