Hello, my name is Tina Deas and I have been running my own holistic private practice, A Time For You, Counselling & Reiki for the last 15 years which is conveniently based in West Swindon.
I am a Senior Registered Hypnotherapist, a BACP Accredited registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist, a Reiki Master/Practitioner, a certified EFT and NLP Practitioner.
I created A Time For You in Swindon to integrate other skills and therapies into my counselling work, and to provide a more holistic approach to healing for my clients. Counselling is always at the heart of what I do, but by incorporating other treatments and techniques, I can offer my own unique combination of therapies to effectively help clients to feel better on all levels.
We are complex human beings and my core training and skill as a Counsellor enables me to effectively gain a deep understanding of you and the issues that you have when you come to see me.
I use Hypnotherapy, as a tool which can help you to access your inner resources and potential, your innate healing ability and to help you to effect the positive changes that to want to make. You can enjoy feeling calm and deeply relaxed during treatment yet you will still remain in control.
Hypnotherapy can be very helpful for panic, fear and anxiety - being deeply relaxed is beneficial in itself if you suffer from any of these or anxiety and stress related physical problems such as IBS and migraines. Hypnotherapy can also help to prepare you for upcoming stressful events such as driving tests and can help with many other current and past issues too.
I work differently to most other hypnotherapists as I usually combine hypnotherapy with Reiki when working face to face.
I have been using Reiki with my clients for over 12 years to provide a calming and relaxed space to facilitate deeper healing and therefore it is a natural starting point to do hypnotherapy. You will naturally go into a deeply relaxed state as you receive Reiki and it is from there that I can take you to an even deeper state of relaxation.
Once you are deeply relaxed and your mind is open to positive suggestion and change, I can then work on the issues that you have talked to me about. This may involve me helping you to visualise a situation or an experience or me talking to your or telling you a story. Although you hear what I am saying to your throughout the therapy, you may forget it afterwards - a bit like when we remember a dream at the time of waking but then forget it. This doesn't matter because you subconscious mind will remember what it experienced and will continue to act on it.
Not only will you leave benefitting from the work that is done during the therapy, you will also have the added benefit of an energy balance from the Reiki and leave feeling rested and refreshed with an improved sense of well being.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Senior Registered member of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)
I qualified as a counsellor in 2005 and became accredited with the BACP in 2008. You can find me on their official register.
I am also a Reiki Master, Certified EFT Practitioner and NLP Practitioner.
I started my journey as a qualified Counsellor in 2005 gaining solid experience in NHS GP Surgeries, a Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Agency, and as a partner in a private counselling practice at the Health Hydro in Swindon. I also taught counselling skills to adults at New College as a part time lecturer for 5 years.
By the time I became accredited with the BACP in 2008 and validated my approach to counselling, I had already realised the limitations of counselling as a standalone therapy and became interested in energy work and the power of our subconscious mind and I decided that I wanted to offer clients a more holistic approach to healing.
This was when 'A Time For You, Counselling and Reiki' was born.
Now, over 12 years later, 'A Time For You' has gone from strength to strength as a unique and successful practice where clients benefit from my combination of Counselling and additional therapies including Reiki, Hypnotherapy, EFT, Matrix Re-imprinting, Personal Coaching and Lifestyle Medicine.
I initially trained in Reiki healing in 2008 to get relief from my own chronic neck pain after other treatments has failed. Self healing with Reiki relieved my neck problem strengthening my belief that our "bodymind" is an integrated system. By treating myself with Reiki my emotional trauma, held energetically and blocking my own energy flow, causing my physical pain and suffering were released and my neck pain went away.
"By changing your thoughts, releasing and letting go or shifting your energy, your life begins to shift - often in quite breathtaking ways."
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
