A sunny warm welcome to you and thank you for visiting my profile. My name is Elizabeth and i am a Clinical Hypnotherapist based in Canterbury. I help people who are suffering from stress and anxiety, who have physical conditions which cause pain and people who have other issues which affect their quality and enjoyment of life. Some other areas I help with are weight loss, smoking cessation, insomnia, fears and phobias. Please do contact me if your issue is not listed. I use a range of different approaches to help people get to where they want to be in life which includes hypnosis, Tapping and NLP. As well as being a clinical hypnotherapist I am also a Master Tapping Practitioner and a Reiki Master. I regularly update my training and skills as part of my continuing professional development.
I have worked in children's settings for many years and so i have combined my experience with hypnotherapy so that i can help children and young people. I work with children from 5 years to 17 years old. I have been especially trained to provide hypnotherapy for children and i am a KidsMatters Practitioner.
I offer therapies online or from a private therapy room in central Canterbury. I am completely dedicated to helping people resolve difficulties in their lives and i work with my clients in a holistic and respectful way. You will find me to be a friendly, approachable, person-centred therapist.
What is Anxiety?
Anxiety can be described as a sense of apprehension at a perceived threat. The anxiety may be external such as a phobia or internal such as General Anxiety disorder. Anxiety levels can go from worry to a feeling of panic. Stress is a natural response which helps us cope in a short term emergency, however, problems occur when our stress response is going off all the time. The results of excessive stress can lead to migraines, skin complaints, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome and other anxiety disorders.
Hypnosis can help your subconscious accept the wanted suggestion to stop smoking and according to New Scientist magazine 'Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking', (vol 136). Hypnotherapy works by changing the way you think about smoking cigarettes and establishing the reasons why you want to stop. During your treatment, you will be put into a deeply relaxed hypnotic state so that your subconscious will be receptive to suggestion. Hypnosis for quitting works best when the smoker is committed to stopping the habit. By using the Easy Quit Smoking Package which received the Hypnotherapy Society's award for clinical excellence in 1998, it usually takes just one appointment of between 90-120 minutes to stop smoking.
What would your life feel like if you had less pain? As an OldPain2Go practitioner i help people to reassess the need for old, persistent, chronic pain. You will already know that pain can affect every part of your life, but what would it feel like to reduce or switch off that old pain? Pain is a message from the brain which lets us know that something is wrong or injured. After a period of healing the pain naturally reduces and goes as the body heals. But sometimes the pain message can remain on the 'on' position long after an injury has healed causing us to have persistent, chronic pain. OldPain2Go can work with Arthritis, Sciatica, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and joint pain.
What is Hypnoanalysis?
I am trained in the use of Hypnoanalysis which is a form of hypnotherapy that aims to discover and resolve the root cause of problems in someone's present day life. During Hypnoanalysis and whilst in hypnosis, your thoughts run free, moving from one to the other without judgment or consideration. This process allows you to bring up unresolved matters, usually from the formative years so that you can look at them from an adult perspective and hence resolve present day symptoms. Hypnoanalysis can help relieve stress, panic disorders, anxiety, phobias, poor self-esteem and weight issues.

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice.
