Anxiety Therapy:

I have many years experience helping people with stress and anxiety and use hypnotherapy, Emotional Freedom Techniques and other anti- anxiety techniques to help you with overwhelm, worry, insomnia and negative thoughts.  Many people feel they have a constant knot in their stomach while others feel in a constant panic and that their anxiety is constantly there, especially at night when they try to sleep.

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 have the chance to tell your story and how anxiety and stress are affecting you. 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.

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 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.

Message me today to get help for anxiety and stress.


Stop Smoking Therapy:

I have helped hundreds of people over the years to quit smoking. After your quit smoking therapy you will leave my therapy room feeling relieved that you have stopped smoking. As soon as you stop smoking you will benefit from improved health, smell better, feel proud of yourself, be a role model for others, including your children and save lots of money in the long term.

Because hypnotherapy is a natural way to stop smoking there is no need to use patches, gums or vapes afterwards. You will simply have no desire to smoke and you will be so glad that you have stopped a habit that was never a natural part of you in the first place.

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 you are committed to stopping the habit.  So ask yourself this question: Am i 100% ready to become a non-smoker? If the answer is yes, then contact me for a free consultation.

It usually takes just one appointment with me to stop smoking.  Please visit my website to learn about my smoking cessation package.

Pain Therapy:

I had suffered from sciatica for many years and so the pain became a normal part of my life. However, a couple of years ago i was a volunteer for the OldPain2GO methodology and i was surprised at how much more energetic and alive i felt when i was able to turn off the pain. I also didn't realise how sapping and limiting my sciatica had become. I was so impressed that i trained as an OldPain2Go Practitioner. I have also trained in Emotional Freedom Techniques which is a powerful therapy which helps to reduce or even eliminate pain.

I can help you reassess the need for old, persistent, chronic pain. Like me, 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 help with conditions such as Arthritis, Sciatica, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and joint pain.

Contact me to find out if you are suitable for OldPain2Go.


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. Many people worry that they can't remember much of their childhood but they are always amazed at how much they do remember.
