During the crisis, I have been working via Zoom and telephone. More recently, I have met clients face-to-face in a park, (compliant with government guidelines). This work can be reinforced with individuated hypnotherapy, sent to your inbox.
The hypnotherapy I practice is gentle, collaborative, effective. It begins with deep relaxation, which most clients find very enjoyable.
Once the conscious mind is quietened, through this relaxation process, the subconscious can be addressed. It is in the subconscious that unwanted habits and fears lurk - the urge to smoke or to eat unhealthy food, for example.
Hypnotherapy can help clients to recognise, and overcome, long-standing and deep-rooted issues. Whether you experience generalized anxiety, fear of travel, social phobia, performance anxiety, overeating or an addiction, hypnotherapy may be able to help you.
I offer a fifty-minute introductory session, currently over telephone or Zoom, free of charge. The session is used to discuss your issues and lifestyle. I will also explain how hypnotherapy works in general, and how I work in particular. At the end of this free session, you will have a good idea as to whether hypnotherapy can work for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been running a hypnotherapy practice in Chorlton for eight years. Previously, I spent five years helping clients to overcome addictions. Prior to that, I worked with clients experiencing mental health issues.
Helping to understand and calm fears is a specialism. Hypnotherapy can be a highly effective tool, in the treatment of persistent anxiety and insomnia.
Helping people to stop smoking is a passion. In 2015, I hosted a free "Stop Smoking Through Hypnotherapy" event in Manchester. In October 2018, I was interviewed live for "Radio City Talk" about hypnotherapy and stopping smoking for good.
Weight loss through hypnotherapy is another specialism. I have extensive experience in this complex area and am happy to discuss hypnotherapy, food and weight, in the introductory session.
I hold a Diploma (distinction) in Hypnotherapy from Chrysalis, an accredited professional training scheme. I have a BA in Philosophy from the University of Essex, and MA in Creative Writing from the University of Manchester. I am also a fully-qualified Counsellor.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help 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 nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
- The current crisis.
- Insominia and troubling dreams.
- Health concerns.
- Generalized anxiety - fear for the future.
- Job interview nerves.
- Technology and its impact upon human life.
The introductory session is free of charge. This is used to decide whether we can work successfully together.
An individual, personal treatment package can then be agreed. If you are on furlough or have seen your working hours reduced, we can discuss how much you can afford to pay.
Normally, fees are £50 per hour-long session. I offer lower rates if you book 4 or 6 sessions.
"Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live" (Dorothy Thompson).
Fear is kept alive, and increased, through inaction. When we take positive action, we usually discover that fears begin to diminish and disappear.
Picking up the phone and calling me is the next step.
