How can hypnotherapy help me? What areas do you work in?
As a trained professional Clinical Hypnotherapist I have helped many clients move from being in an anxious, stressful, fearful state, to a much more improve and positive mindset. From fear to a confident, calm and more relaxed individual with a sense of clarity and control gained over thoughts, feelings and emotions. Helping them to move forward in their life and able to take back control, to make clear decisions and better choices. Learning how to cope much better with daily life and use the skills taught in my sessions.. I work with you to help you improve your lifestyle, by reaching your own goals, whether that is to overcome, negative habits, behaviours, or fears regarding mental health or physical health issues. I specialise in several areas, from experience in clients suffering with stress and anxiety, to hypno-birthing workshops and also supporting and helping clients that have had a cancer diagnosis and going through cancer treatment. I have several programmes too to help many areas from menopause support through to helping improve confidence and focus for preparation for job interviews, passing exams and tests, (driving test) and many more.
What is a typical hypnotherapy like?
In a session, it will be important for me to be supportive manner and listen carefully to what present or past personal history may have contributed to the present issue you wish to change. it also maybe a personal or health goal, so changes around food relationship or motivation to exercise may be your goal. If it is a habit or behaviour that is negative we will go back when it started and what was happening in your life at the time. It may be unknown to you, the trigger so hypnotherapy will help explore the subconscious to help us gather the information and then work on this to help you improve in the way best for you.  Hypnotherapy sessions are a excellent method to help arrange of issues from eliminating stress, anxiety, fears, phobias or to help get focus and motivated to reach a goal, confidence, exercise or lose weight, quit smoking or vaping. Also, hypnotherapy helps to letting go addictions to food and drink, quitting sugar, chocolate and generally to improve health. I listen to the client's needs and goals and provide a bespoke hypnosis service to help you.

The programme does cover such areas as immune system, reduce pain, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, pre and post surgery support.

The Hypno-Oncology is a very unique programme with real help and support and from my feed-back from clients that say it has really helped them during their treatment period and afterwards as well. I have worked with many clients going through cancer so have experience and understanding to know how all fearful the process can be and how to help to support the individual and their family too, and to help them focus more on the positive outcomes which helps to alleviate further fear, worry and upset. I have many years experience of dealing with Breast Cancer clients and other cancer patients too.

I pride myself on being a caring and welcoming clinical hypnotherapist and holistic therapist in Reiki, so know how to support the client on a holistic level, reviewing all of what has been building up in their personal and professional like to the point they need help from me. I truly engage with my clients to listen on how I can best help them reach their own personal goals. These goals that need help and support to lead the client reaching an improved  or better physical health, or reaching a mental health wellbeing improvement.  It could be a fear that has worsened over time, triggers or other contributing factors, and now its start to impact on your daily activities and your families life too, in a negative way, that you know, change is needed for you as you no longer want it to impact you, your family or your work area.

I will help you by reducing the anxiety and stress you have in your life and then we will work on focusing to improving your life by working on having a more confident and positive mind-set, which will help you access the relaxation feelings, able to feel calm, be confident and more in control. To be able to worry less and sleep better. I enable you with various techniques and tools, to take with you, so you know how to understand your mind, thoughts, feelings and then apply the techniques learnt so you can confidently know what to do in the future.

Hypnotherapy also helps with those who suffer with physical diagnosed conditions or chronic long term pain; conditions it can help with for example is Fibromalygia, Chronic Fatigue, IBS, Autoimmune issues, Pre-diabetes, Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholestrol, insomnia. Hypnosis helps to reduce physical pain, helping with preparation for surgery and help lessen pain post surgery, to help support recovery time. It can help with chronic long term pain, help to release emotional pain, related to past negative events or experiences, maybe as a young adult or as a young child, it may still be a underlying issue affecting your adult life today. All these negative memories or negative emotions can be released to past memories, in a safe, supported and gentle technique, helping you let go and able to move forward to enjoy your life to the full.
Within my hypnotherapy sessions, I help the client by listening to them carefully on all their personal circumstances and history too where we identify any negative events or thoughts of situations may have caused them illness, emotional pain, stress or anxiety. We work on releasing these negative emotions that can be connected to physical illness in the body, enabling client to let go and move forward in a more positive and healthy way, by doing so improving their thoughts, their mental and physical health too.
Hypnosis helps reduce joint pain, general ailments, feeling lack of joy, to help improve immune system, improve resilience, help to put healthy boundaries in place, accepting responsibility, act on forgiveness of self and others, able to generally be more relaxed, happy and positive, which provides more harmony and balance in your life. 

Hypnotherapy is a well researched and documented therapy that has proven to help clients mental and physical well-being effectively. Hypnotherapy is effective therapy for helping with ancestral patterns, and also help to let go and over come issues in current life using past life regression in a hypnotherapy session.

My aim is always to provide a warm and caring but professional service to my clients. To ensure clients are made to feel welcomed, feel safe to open up in a supportive, safe, private and confidential space without any judgement. To feel listened to and any issues addressed and understood so the client is helped by providing the correct and bespoke hypnotherapy sessions to help the client improve, feel happy and be relaxed and to have the confidence that transformation is there for them through hypnotherapy.

I support the client during and after their hypnotherapy sessions with me, so a continuing support is available to them after their hypnotherapy treatment plan is complete. Some clients will then ask for a monthly top-up sessions to keep well and able to have the continuity with a therapist for ongoing support and guidance.

I offer all new clients a FREE 30 minute chat to see if I am the right therapist to offer the right help and therapy suitable to help you. This also gives you the chance to ask any questions about the structure and what to expect from a session from me.
