I am an experienced Hypnotherapist having begun my hypnotherapy career in 1986. I work with clients to help them achieve their goals in a supportive client centred approach. I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and attend regular supervision.
I practice both hypnotherapy and counselling and have combined the two in my hypno-counselling approach. My Masters Degree dissertation, gained in 2005, focused on the combination of counselling and hypnotherapy - "Hypno-Counselling". By communicating with the subconscious where emotions are rooted and core beliefs held it is possible to assist clients through a wonderful process of change to help them accomplish their goal.
I have developed an integrated model using hypnosis and counselling that works well for a wide range of conditions such as:
- panic attacks, fears, nervousness.
- anxiety states
- lack of confidence
- smoking cessation
- weight loss
- creativity blocks
- sports motivation
- fear of flying/dentist/public speaking/public transport/social occasions
- sleep problems
- mind-body healing
- improving self belief
- relaxation though pregnancy
- Creative visualisation
- releasing past negative beliefs
- Inner child rescue
- Accepting change
- Exam nerves
- Please contact me to ask if I can help you with your condition as there are many emotionally problems that may be helped with hypnotherapy.
My hypnotic induction has been welcomed as a most calming and soothing experience.
"Dear Shirley, I thought it might be time for me to write to you and let you know I’ve been doing fine my panic attacks have stopped…Thank you very much, it has been lovely to forget about all the things that used to stress me out, thank you" from X
"Dear Shirley, I just wanted to say a proper thank you for the work you did with my daughter during the summer about her anxiety attacks. It is amazing to think how relaxed she is now and confident. She enjoys her life now as any well balanced 17 yr old girl should!! I remarked to her a short while ago how much she had moved on she couldn’t even remember how frightened and anxious she was!! Thank you so much Shirley, best wishes," XX
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied hypnotherapy at The Blue Stone Clinic, Upper Harley Street, London and qualified in 1986. Following on from a year in a Manchester Clinic I set up my practice in Llandudno, North Wales in 1987 and have been in full time practice ever since. My journey as a therapist has been one of ongoing professional development. I have attended therapists workshops and courses in my quest to develop my skills further. During the 1990s I completed a three year counselling course that covered a wide range of therapy approaches. I went on to complete my Masters Degree. All this coupled with 32 years of experience brings me to where I am now.
Through this time I have worked with a diverse range of conditions and am pleased to say I enjoy a high success rate.
The essence of my approach is about the connection between now and the past. I respect the power of the subconscious to uncover the root of the condition presented which then leads on to the process of change. You are welcome to email me if you need further information with regard to my approach being suitable for you. Or you are welcome to telephone, though do leave a message for me to return your call if I am unable to take the call personally.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
You may be experiencing a condition that is not listed or is made up of different aspects. You are welcome to email me, in confidence, and I will happily consider whether I am able to work with you.
I am often asked "how many sessions will it take" or "Will it just be one session".
More than one session would be required. It is impossible to say how many sessions are required. However, using hypnotherapy speeds up the process and I work as quickly as possible to help my clients achieve their goal.
