With two degrees in psychology (BSc Hons in Psychology and an MSc Occupational Psychology) I understand the complex relationship of how the mind and body should work together …. and more importantly, why it doesn’t!
With my 'psychological background' in coaching and career development I have first hand experience of how the most capable amongst us, can be thwarted by deep rooted issues such as depression, low self esteem, fears and phobias.
I help people achieve their goals by combining relaxation techniques, hypnotherapeutic approaches and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) to realign their conscious and subconscious minds. Resulting in thoughts and behaviours enabling people to live their life rather than just endure it.
I help people with DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, STRESS, SLEEPING ISSUES, IBS*, CONFIDENCE, SELF ESTEEM, FEARS, HABITS & PHOBIAS, EMOTIONAL & FUSSY EATING and RELAXATION.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am client centered and use a variety of techniques including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuro-Linguistic Processing (NLP), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and suggestions dependent on the issue concerned.
Specialist Areas: Depression and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
I have additional specialised training to help people suffering with depression. Following an initial consultation, I offer a 12 week course* which develops:
- coping skills
- effective relationships and support networks
- social skills
- problem solving skills
- realistic and acheivable goals
In addition, the course addresses negative and de-motivating thoughts and expectations.
I have specialised training in Gut Specific & Gut Directed Protocol hypnotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. This is a recognised and recommended course of treatment by NICE as being suitable for IBS sufferers. Prior GP diagnosis is a mandatory requirement before treatment.
I work with the IBS Network and I am in the process of setting up a local support group for people with IBS. For more details either contract me or contact the IBS Network for more details.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
* If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies or treatments.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
I help people with emotional eating issues in addition to habitual fussy eating, food phobias and anxiety relating to new foods.
Hypnotherapy is a deeply personal process and it is important to me, that my clients feel comfortable discussing their issues.
Consequently, the first consultation is therefore longer than a standard session. It takes approximately 1-2 hours and the cost is £75. This addition time allows us to meet and chat about any concerns you may have and to experience hypnosis. This time is useful to find out the nature of your issue, your needs and expectations. I will ask questions relating to your general health and background history and address any issues you may have relating to hypnotherapy.
Thereafter generally hypnotherapy session lasts approximately 1 hour and costs £50 per hour, paid in advance.
I have a clear Enhanced Criminal Record Certificate - Disclosure & Barring Service.
