About me

My name is Emily and I am passionate about helping you find greater well being and happiness, no matter what your circumstances are. If you live with the effects of a chronic health problem, either your own or someone you care about, then your life may well revolve around that problem. I can help you to find a better balance and create a life that is more positive. You may need help to find yourself again if your old identity feels long lost and hidden behind symptoms and changes in your abilities. Regaining confidence and directing the passion you used to have in new positive directions can open up a world of possibilities. All of this of course needs to be enabled alongside improved management of symptoms such as pain, insomnia or nausea.

I can help you regain a sense of purpose and build the confidence to create a life that you truly enjoy. Even if you live with a chronic health problem, it is possible to take control and shape a better life for yourself.

I am qualified in Clinical Hypnotherapy and NLPas well as Life Coaching,which allows me to provide you with powerful sessions that enable you to work through limiting beliefs and to deal with difficult circumstances. Sessions are tailored to your situation and needs. Together we can identify the barriers to your well being and then set goals to negate them.

More about the methods I use to help you achieve change:

Life Coaching: with my expert coaching you can first identify and then achieve life goals that will benefit your well being and change your life for the better. Coaching is a powerful tool that encourages and enables you to achieve change and progress in any area of your life.  I will challenge you to look beyond your limitations and support you in finding ways to cope with difficulties and ultimately create a more fulfilling life.

Hypnotherapy: using hypnotherapy we can address deep seated issues such as a lack of confidence or phobias, or alternatively find relief from chronic symptoms and stress. Hypnotherapy can be used to learn to ease our awareness of pain, to improve nsomnia and anxiety amongst other things. It can also be very useful for tackling damaging patterns or limiting beliefs that are holding you back.

Relaxation: if stress is affecting your well being or mood then I can help you to experience a whole new level of relaxation. I can help you find techniques that work for you and help you experience profound relaxation! Learning to relax, is a life skill that most of us are never taught, and yet it can have a profound impact on our health and ability to deal with challenges.

Please feel free to contact me by email or phone for a chat, with no obligation.
