Hello, I’m Tracy, an experienced Solution Focused Hypnotherapist who has been helping people from Poole and the surrounding areas for the past six years. I have helped many people with a large range of issues so whatever is troubling you, don’t feel embarrassed to seek my assistance. I aim to support you by offering a friendly, affordable, compassionate service tailored to your individual needs. I genuinely care about my clients and I want to help each person gain better emotional and mental well-being. I am a registered and qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Mindfulness instructor, FE Lecturer and Reiki practitioner. I enjoy working with people and helping them to get the best out of themselves and their lives.
Secure online sessions via Zoom are currently available at flexible appointment times for anyone who would prefer to see me without direct contact.
I work with people of all ages. I specialise in the management of stress, anxiety, including panic attacks, as well as low mood, overcoming unhelpful thinking patterns, self-limiting beliefs, weight loss and lack of confidence.
My approach is person-centred, caring, supportive and non-judgemental. My therapy room is a private, relaxing, comfortable space in which to offload problems and work toward finding solutions. I provide hypnotherapy recordings for your personal use as well as techniques for coping with stress, anxiety and low mood. Over the past few years, I have enabled many people to achieve successful outcomes and move forward with their lives.
How I work
I use an integrated approach mainly drawing upon Solution Focused Hypnotherapy which:
- Employs the use of modern, research-based techniques for positive results in a relatively short period of time.
- Is underpinned by up-to-date developments in neuroscience.
- Focuses upon what the client wants to achieve rather than the problem
- Is a positive and active process which engages the client in focusing upon the present and desired outcomes for the future, rather than focusing upon the problem or events of the past.
Having also undertaken training in Counselling and Mindfulness, I am able to use my knowledge and skills in these areas. Being able to use a variety of techniques gives me the opportunity to work in a flexible way. I would always ask for your consent before trying a different technique. No one size fits all. We are all unique and wonderful individuals!
What to expect during a session?
Each session lasts between 50 - 60 minutes. The first half of the session is dedicated to a therapeutic, solution focused discussion which assists you in identifying and working towards solutions. The second part of the session involves hypnosis using a light state of trance to enable you to absorb positive suggestions and achieve your personal goals.
My background is in education. I have spent many years working in the further education sector as a SEN lecturer as well as a lecturing in health and social care. I am passionate about health, wellness, and the mind body connection. My goal is to help you achieve a state of wellness, whatever that means to you.
