I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, offering a service to clients in West Yorkshire. I work with adults at all life stages, and I will help you to deal with the stresses and challenges which are part of life in a constantly changing world.
I am also qualified to offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Re-processing).
As a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, my sessions concentrate on understanding the concerns of my clients and helping them move towards their own goals, through steps set for themselves. As well as the hypnosis itself, part of every session will include talking about progress towards the outcome which you want to see for yourself. whether that is improving your sleep patterns, losing weight, changing annoying or difficult behaviours, or regaining a sense of wellbeing generally in your life.
Learning the ability to relax is important for many clients, and can help in the achievement of their goals. Through a Solution Focused approach, we can gain an understanding of how we create stress for ourselves, which makes it easier to plan our goals to reduce it. That relaxation can also help at life events, including pregnancy and childbirth, weddings, exam and driving test nerves, moving, relocation and job changes.
I am also a fully qualified Clinical Reflexologist, and clients often enjoy the inclusion of this relaxing therapy in an integrated approach to their sessions.
If you are wondering whether hypnotherapy can help you, just call, text or email me; we can then set up a conversation to find out what you would like to get from hypnotherapy. This is without obligation or cost, and if you decide you'd like to continue, we'll agree the best way to progress for you and set up regular sessions.
