About me

Seeking help.

If you're reading this, you may have started to question the ways you manage life and your reactions to it. Perhaps you are struggling with a specific issue, or just have a general sense that things aren't working as well as they could. Maybe you already know that more is possible, that there must be a better way to live, but don't quite know where to start.

Using hypnotherapy to help you explore the underlying emotions and beliefs that cause those strong reactions to challenges is a powerful first step. By working with your inner world and getting to know how your thoughts and beliefs inform your choices, and exploring what you really want out of life, you can truly be empowered to shape your life in the way you really want.

What can you achieve with hypnotherapy?

Deactivate the fight-or-flight stress/anxiety response for deep relaxation.
Cultivate an inner sense of safety and strength.
Explore and update automatic negative emotions and thoughts.
Determine what you really want from your current life circumstances.
Establish realistic strategies and responses that inspire you.
Experience a more loving and accepting relationship with yourself.

Working with me.

I am an experienced hypnotherapy counsellor working in Ledbury and Malvern. I am warm and personable, open and non-judgemental, and my intention is to understand what is happening in your life from your point of view and empower you to make changes for the better.

I practise progressive therapeutic hypnotherapy with an emphasis on self-care, and on uncovering and restructuring negative emotions and beliefs that have been holding you back. Working over a series of sessions you will approach the same issue from the somatic and emotional perspectives, exploring past experiences that may have contributed. By using the powerful gift of the unconscious mind, which contains answers beyond your rational abilities, you can start to make choices that positively impact your life.

What next?

If you want to find out if hypnotherapy is right for you, just give me a call on 07581 224539. Otherwise drop me a line at emma@innerjoyhypnotherapy.uk and I will offer you an appointment. In your first session we will discuss your situation further, explore what you specifically need, and I will offer an initial plan for you to think about. In the following sessions you will experience the gently transformative power of hypnotherapy, all of which will be explained and checked with you in advance.

Accept yourself. Appreciate yourself. Take care of yourself.

Further information

I also specialise in these areas.

Dealing with transition:
Our roles change throughout our lives, but it is not always easy to adjust to the new expectations each stage brings. Whether you need help to cope with the limitations of a new family or sick relative, or with the daunting freedom of retirement or children leaving home, using hypnotherapy will offer you the chance to experience insights and new perspectives on what it is you really want. When you really get certain on your own needs, decisions and abilities, you are empowered to make a difference for your future well-being.

Stress and Anxiety:
We live in a culture of continual pressure and worry. Many people simply do not realise how much tension they are carrying around both physically and mentally, and never get any respite. Hypnotherapy can help to switch off the fight-or-flight response, calm those physical symptoms, and rediscover a state of happiness you may not have experienced for years.

Who cares for the carer? Hypnotherapy can be used by both individuals and groups, including carers' groups and care staff, to make self-care a top priority. By renewing your sense of satisfaction and well-being in your life, you are better able to provide those around you with all they need and more.
