Cognitive Hypnotherapy in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire.
My practice is based at the Herts Therapy Centre, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire. The Centre is very private and is home to a coalition of therapists providing therapy for our local community. Free parking spaces are available around the building.
I am fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS certificate. I am also a member of the Complementary and Natural Health Care Council, as well as the NCH and QCHPA.
I love working as a therapist and my aim is to give you the best care possible. I believe very strongly in keeping up to date with my professional development and have recently qualified as a Cognitive Hypnotherapy and NLP Master Practitioner.
I use a combination of CBT, traditional hypnotherapy, Positive Psychology and NLP to find out why you feel this way and then we work together to get you to your Solution State - that is, the person you want to be.
For me, you are the important person in the therapy partnership. We work at your pace and with your needs in mind. Care and customer service are of paramount importance.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Each person who comes to see me is an individual with differing causes and reasons for their problem. I cannot say how many sessions you will need. Some clients see me once, others from 3 to 5 times. Some come for longer.
I tend to see people fortnightly and then monthly. We work at your pace and with your needs in mind.
What Can Hypnotherapy help?
Just because something has been in your life for a long time, does not mean it has to be there forever. Sometimes we need help to enable us to break free of a negative loop of behaviour.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy can help many problems - among them Anxiety, Fears and Phobias, Unwanted Habits... Sometimes we can't put a name to how we feel. We just know that we need help. This form of therapy can help track down those negative thoughts and feelings and take away the emotion, the pain, leaving a calmness that enables you to work towards living the life you really want to live.
I love helping people to start on that road. We start together, but after a while you won't need me because you will have found your strength again.
Each client who comes to see me is important. I provide a service that is caring and non-judgemental. Unlike some other hypnotherapists I do not use set scripts, but use something called Wordweaving. This means that I write and record a tailor made MP3 for each person - consolidating the work we do together in my Practice Rooms. I will send you a bespoke recording several times during the course of treatment, depending on your needs, always working to help you on that journey, moving little by little to the person you would like to be.
Complimentary Telephone Consultation.
I know that it takes courage to make an appointment and courage to talk to a stranger about something that is personal and upsetting to you. Over time I have found that being able to have a chat over the phone really helps my clients to make the decision as to whether I am the right therapist for them.
You are very welcome to contact me and arrange to chat about the sort of service I provide. We can talk about how I work and you are welcome to ask any questions.I know that Hypnotherapy is a bit of an unknown for lots of people!
