Due to the current Health concerns about Coronavirus I would like to clarify that I am able to offer Online, telephone and email therapy to support you to get the help you need.
This can be achieved using a secure video link, Zoom. Please contact me to ask any questions in regard to online therapy.
THE BENEFITS OF ONLINE THERAPY
Therapy has traditionally been the meeting of the therapist and client face-to-face within a room. However, for clients this often means finding time in a hectic life for appointments. It can mean having to arrange childcare or time off work, while also having to accommodate for travel-time, to-and-from appointments. From this perspective, the meeting of the therapist and client within a virtual room at home can work well for both therapist and client. It offers a higher level of accessibility, flexibility and convenience compared to face-to-face counselliing.
Online counselling and therapy has rapidly increased in popularity. Most counsellors, therapists and psychologists now recognise that this way of meeting clients can be effective and more convenient for everyone.
Thinking about Hypnotherapy?
Then now might be the opportunity for you to create your own positive change.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and Counselling can help you to see things more clearly, make changes and move forward.
I offer a flexible support service to help you as an individual, with this in mind I am available for Hypnotherapy & Counselling sessions during extended hours, early mornings, evenings and weekends. I also offer extended sessions if you feel that you need more than the traditional Hour, this will be negotiated during the Initial Consultation.
Create your own positive change
It can feel daunting, reaching out to a professional for help, but the fact that you are here, reading this, shows that you are hopeful that positive change is possible. Life can feel demanding and we can sometimes feel overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or angry, overthinking/worrying can be a drain, leaving us feeling exhausted. This can be your opportunity to talk about what is troubling you, explore your thoughts and feelings and take action, gain better strategies to cope or deal with issues. Create your own positive change and feel happier.
As you can see from your search for Hypnotherapists there are so many of us, how can you choose?
Professional standards alongside a warm and honest therapeutic relationship create a successful environment for change.
I am an experienced therapist, a qualified Counsellor, registered with The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I believe I offer a therapeutic relationship with my clients which is professional yet nurturing, a safe space for you to overcome whatever issue you want to resolve.
We work together to discover what thoughts/beliefs or behaviours may be holding you back and most importantly how to change them so that you feel happier and healthier.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a positive talking therapy that specifically works with your ideas about where you want to be and what you want to achieve. I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy and The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.
Hypnotherapy can be a fabulous tool when used in the therapy room to consolidate change and open your thoughts to new perspectives, while calming the mind to put you back in control.
As a therapist I believe individuals have a great capacity for self-healing & personal growth when provided with a nurturing environment in which they feel safe to explore, experience and expand their understanding. My role is to provide these conditions, warmth, respect, empathic understanding, compassion, authenticity and unconditional Positive regard.
I work from my own Private Practice in Hutton, Weston Super Mare. We have a spacious, comfortable and accessible therapy room, with beautiful views over the countryside. There are many proven therapeutic benefits from spending time in Nature and so I hope that you will enjoy the journey to and from your sessions nearly as much as the sessions themselves
I regularly update my knowledge of therapeutic practice and so strive to offer you the best service possible. Helping you to achieve your desired results in a relatively short time frame.
Therapy sessions are generally 60-90 minutes.
You are never rushed out of the door, if you feel that your personal circumstances require a longer appointment, this can be catered for with prior notice.
Ongoing support While you are a client you will receive ongoing support in between sessions if needed, via text/phone/Facebook/email.
I pride myself at the level of service and support that I offer my clients, It is my belief that if you provide someone with the environment and support that they need to grow then they will flourish.
