What is Anxiety?
I have many years experience helping people with anxiety and use hypnotherapy, anti- anxiety techniques and tapping. After your first session with me you will feel relaxed, have tools to put you in control and you will feel more confident and hopeful about your future. You will also learn the biology and physiology of anxiety so that you can recognise it and use your new tools to deal with it. I work in a solution focused way and i can help you feel more calm and relaxed in just 4 sessions.
We have all suffered from stress and anxiety at some point in our lives. It is part of the human condition and a perfectly normal response to various stressors that we face in life. Many people feel that they don't have a choice but to feel anxious in certain situations but you do have a choice and there there is a way to gain control over it. You were not born anxious, it has been learned over time to help you cope or avoid things. And because it has been learned, it can be unlearned. All you need is a commitment to make changes to the way you usually do react.
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.
Many people leave my therapy room feeling relieved that they have stopped smoking and they are also reassured by my stop smoking guarantee which can be found on my website. Hypnotherapy is a natural way to stop smoking and there is no need to use patches, gums or vapes.
Hypnosis works by helping 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 with me of between 90-120 minutes to stop smoking. Please visit my website to learn about my smoking cessation package.
What would your life feel like if you had less pain? As an OldPain2Go practitioner i help people 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 your childhood 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. Hypnoanalysis is usually over 12 sessions but may vary from person to person.
You are invited to message or call to arrange a free strategy call. When contacting me it is best if you can let me know the best day and time to call you. I always answer client enquiries so if you do not hear from me, please check your spam mail.
