22a Limesford Road
Hello I’m Rita, a qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner working in South East London. I'm passionate about empowering people to make positive lasting change in their lives so that they can live more fulfilled lives. I spent over 30 years in Early Years Education and know that limiting beliefs about ourselves can be formed so early on that they can hinder our lives and stop us being who we really are if we let them.
We all experience times when we want to change, this may include changes to our lifestyle, habits we want to break, or even behaviours and beliefs that we no longer feel are useful to us. I can help you choose how you view your life and change this to work for you rather than hold you back, putting you in control of where you want to be and assisting you in becoming the best version of yourself, whatever that means to you.
How I work
I provide bespoke hypnotherapy to suit your individual needs that will ensure you receive the very best treatment available. I aim to resolve issues in as few sessions as possible. (Usually between 3-6, excluding smoking cessation which is a single 3 hr session).
I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation and if you feel like you would like to have hypnotherapy then we can arrange the first session, which will mainly consist of taking a history of the problem. After this we would normally have 2 or 3 more sessions but as everyone is different and depending on the issue it may take more longer. I use a combination of Hypnotherapy, NLP, EFT and other appropriate therapeutic techniques to help you make breakthroughs that will empower you to live the life you want.I offer treatments for many conditions such as; phobias, anxiety, stress management, exam nerves, smoking cessation, addictions and weight loss.
Are you ready to make that change? Call me now for a free 15 minute telephone consultation to discuss your therapy or if you prefer, email me. If I can help you further or if there is a condition or an issue not listed below, please contact me and we can chat over the phone.
“Thanks to Rita, I feel I possess newly found courage to now speak confidently in public situations. I feel I now have a sense of purpose and inspirational thoughts which will help me progress as an individual. During my sessions with Rita, she was able to get straight to the heart of the problem in a very relaxed and straightforward manner. I felt instantly at ease and would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone”
A.R Public Speaking
“I went to see Rita because I would eat chocolate uncontrollably. I couldn't stop at one bar I would eat several often making myself feel physically sick. As part of the treatment I was given a recording and I often fell asleep listening to it. Thanks to the sessions and the recording I have my addiction under control. This is the best result I could have wished for. Not completely stopping eating chocolate but in control of what I eat. Thanks Rita for breaking this 20 year old cycle”
