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
School refusal and other child problems.
Study, examination and Presentation anxieties.
daytime and evenings on weekdays
My first contact with hypnotherapy was as a client in the 1980's. I was so impressed by the effectiveness of hypnotherapy, and the changes it helped me to make in myself and my life, that I decided to train as a hypnotherapist myself.
I was ready to begin practice in 1990, and have never looked back! I regularly attend more courses to learn new skills, and to keep up to date. Recently I attended a course in hypnotherapy with children, and before that courses in working with IBS and Tinnitus. There is always something new to learn, even where I have some experience in helping with an issue.
Hypnotherapy is for me a really rewarding profession. I get a huge satisfaction when I hear from my clients who have made that successful presentation, flown without anxiety, achieved their desired weight, permanently stopped smoking. Every client brings a new interesting challenge - recently a lady who couldn't eat after her stomach had been removed for cancer, who a week later phoned to say she had put on three pounds; and a man terrified of all hospital procedures who managed a CT scan, chemotherapy and radiotherapy after a couple of sessions. I now have photographs of babies I "helped" into the world through hypnosis for fertility.
