I qualified as a hypnotherapist and stress manager in 1995 and have been helping people ever since. I have worked with many people over the years with anxieties, fears and phobias, with low confidence and low self-esteem, with smoking cessation, and many other physical, mental and emotional issues. I work with all types of performance anxiety from driving test and exam nerves, public speaking, interviews and stage performances. I also offer other therapies, such as reiki and kinesiology. I am a trained maths teacher and have 3 grown up sons. I offer workshops and training, having run several Diploma courses for the Cambridge College of Hypnotherapy.
How it can help
Hypnotherapy is a great way of getting control back in your life, and understanding how to manage your own stresses and reactions to them. We learn from the moment we are born, and in our early years we can take on messages about ourselves which do not serve us. How many children are told that they are useless, stupid, clumsy, or basically unlovable! Or we can be affected by things that happen, which may be traumatic to us and leave us vulnerable and uncertain.
Hypnotherapy can be a way of changing those underlying beliefs about ourselves, and change them into positive and empowering thoughts, as well as changing thoughts that lead to habit behaviours. It can also help to process traumatic experiences so they are no longer affecting you.
I also use techniques from kinesiology as well as reiki and shamanic healing if requested. I offer soul retrieval which is a powerful process for regaining wholeness, and is used particularly when a person has experienced trauma.
What to expect from your first session
I am always happy to meet first to discuss the issues and decide if this is the way forward for you. I will gather more information at the first full session and do a relaxation to guide you gently into the hypnotic trance state where the changework will take place. You will most likely be aware of the process, and remain in full control. Trance is a natural human state during which we have an inward focus, and can be fully absorbed in the process. I will often record this relaxation to allow you to continue working with it. Very few problems need more than 5 sessions, and often less are required.
Please feel free to contact me to book a free initial assessment. I look forward to being able to work with you!
