Hello and thank you ….
for taking the time to read my profile. It takes courage to try and change or deal with personal issues and sometimes it is just easier to leave things and hope for the best but I would encourage you to pick up the phone and talk or email . The first step is to take advantage of the offer of an over the Phone or Skype consultation.

That consultation will help us both understand what it is that you want - compared to what you keep getting and it also allows us to understand what role fear has in keeping you stuck. During this conversation we can get a good idea how we will work well together won't we. This conversation is important so I use an answering service to make sure that having taken the right step to call someone is there to get your details - as I'm with clients most of my time.

About your brain and your body
Did you know that the part of you brain responsible for fear based behaviour is the Amygdala and that amygdala ( well you have two actually) effectively keeps you stuck doing things to protect yourself. Did you also know that neuroscience using Havening Techniques ™ can help change the way you think about the past and past trauma and with hypnotherapy and NLP you can target those areas and help create real change. Then there is another past of your brain thats responsible for storing habits. You activate those habits on a what feels better basis. So providing together we find out what happens right at the start of the habit we can help change it to something more rewarding. We do this by creating new pathways in the brain this is called Neuroplacsticity - the ability of the the brain to change itself.

And Spirit
Breath, life energy whatever you call it, did you also notice that when we are able to lead our lives confidently and with joy then everything else seems to go much better . When we are balanced, in the moment then we can deal with anything that comes up.

What to expect ?
There are many different ways of practicing hypnotherapy - the right way is the way that gets a result for you. Therefore depending upon the type of issue we are dealing with I may use approaches that I know work really well for certain types of problems. Havening techniques ™ and other Psy TAP ( psycho sensory techniques and practices - the tapping solutions ) are wonderful at helping problems the eminent form the amygdala, I will be using hypnosis and hypnotherapy and NLP throughout all the session it may feel like a talk but change may be happening throughout. What clients experience is very surprising.

I work in longer than average sessions normally 1.5 - 2 hours hours and then a follow up a week later then we take stock of the situation. Many clients use the 2nd session to review the work and practice techniques others ask to get started on clearing another problem.

Many of my clients want help with feeling better more comfortable, confident and in control of their attitude to food, alcohol, weight and body.There is no typical client.

Anxiety, phobias, panic attacks and Stress can and may respond to hypnotherapy interventions and being a certified NLP coach I'm there to support through different processes to help you achieve a result. In all hypnotherapy and NLP processes your open mindedness and willingness to develop yourself are key to the outcomes.

Virtual Gastric Band
The unique Hypnotic Gastric Band process incorporates tried and tested NLP, Hypnotherapy and best practice. I also offer an annual support programme on the first wednesday of every month called Weight Loss Wednesday - so you can be assured of support while you make all those amazing changes to your thinking , your body and your life.

Want to Stop Smoking ?
To stop smoking I am one of a few specialists trained in the world famous  "stop smoking in one hour process" - now I am able to integrate new techniques born out of neuroscience to eliminate the relationships to trauma that keep some people smoking and then help them stop. Its very useful to have new approaches integrated with the traditional.

Want to change your relationship with drinking ?

Its important to be realistic about what you really want to do, having a consultation helps clients understand the nature of the problem then make the decision that meets and fits with their life the best. So if you are a binge drinker the approach may be different to someone who wants to minimise alcohol to lose weight or from a person who wishes to stop completely . Like all situation we discuss and form a plan. Sometimes that plan may mean getting more support over a longer period.

Why Hypnosis ?
Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy deals with the unconscious mind or those things that happen beneath the surface that create the unwanted patterns of thinking and behaviour. Though relief from some types of issues is spontaneous and fast - I like to make sure that you connect permanently into your amazing personal resources permanently. .

You can be assured of some change, whatever your particular concern or issue is. Expect a relationship and therapy process that is aimed to clear the emotional root cause, beliefs and un-resourceful experiences that may have contributed your issues and enjoy a results orientated approach. Clients remark that they didn't expect the outcome to be so comprehensive.

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice.

Stop Smoking

"I have to admit I was a be sceptical about hypnosis but Louise explained things logically and thought I would give it a go. I have tried to kick the habit for years but never been able to break the social triggers that led to me smoking. All I can say is Hypnosis worked, I can't tell you how or why but it did. Strangely it's not like I have to make an effort not to smoke, I just don't smoke any more."

Crises Management and Dog Phobia

"I was sceptical about hypnotherapy.... not because I doubted it could work, more that I doubted it could work for me!   Then about six months ago my world was rocked when my brother was diagnosed with  terminal cancer, I desperately wanted to spend time with him and be useful to him and his family but there was a problem, a stupid problem! - I've always been fearful of dogs and he had a BIG dog. The dog was part of the family... visiting my brother meant visiting the dog. Visiting the dog meant sweating, racing heart beat and looking around constantly to see where it was. This was not how I wanted to spend this precious time and I felt disappointed with myself that such a stupid irrational thing might prevent me from focussing on was was important.   An understanding friend suggested I seek the help of a Hypnotherapist and recommended Louise.

I had a session with Louise at her therapy room in Marlow and felt the benefit immediately - I saw the dog in a different light straight away but what was really amazing was that the effect seemed to strengthen as the weeks went by, my fear of the dog dwindled further every time I saw it.

Energy and Stress Management

Having never tried hypnotherapy before I was a little apprehensive before my first appointment, I needn't have been.  For anyone out there who has issues with confidence and low energy levels as I did, I cannot recommend enough visiting Louise. My issues were affecting my family life to the point where I wasn't showing them enough attention, especially my wife. The best thing about Louise's treatments was that they were not a crutch. This isn't something you will have to do every week for the rest of your life to solve your problems. Louise will release the energy and strength from within to help you help yourself. My issues were resolved within 2 sessions but I wouldn't hesitate getting in touch with Louise again to help me achieve other personal goals.

Serious Heath Complications - Stop Smoking & Stop Drinking Alcohol

"Louise has saved my life quite literally, she helped me give up 2 very severe addictions, drinking and smoking.

Without her I don't know what I would of done. I can highly recommend her to anyone who needs this intense form of help and care".

Sandy – Marlow

Phobia  & Anxiety about water – Competitive Sport

It went really well.

I couldn't believe how calm I was entering the water and the

Temperature of the water didn't bother me at all. I got a prep talk about my first experience but none of those materialised. The guys who were on look out couldn't believe it was my first open water swim.

It was an exhilarating experience and next time I'll beout there on my own pushing the boundaries a little further. Thank you so much for your help. It made a huge difference.

Confidence and Limiting Beliefs

I went to Louise to sort out a niggling feeling I'd had for some time. It wasn't a major issue, but it was big enough for me to realise that life would be better without it. I now know that these feelings are termed "limiting beliefs' - a very good description! Louise really took the time to understand everything about the origin of my limiting belief and came up with a plan of action which, under hypnotherapy, involved revisiting the belief's triggers and looking forward to the future. It's now nearly two weeks since my second and final session and I'm pleased to say it worked! The best way to describe how I feel now is "brighter". The old limiting belief simply doesn't belong to me any more. A great experience and a very powerful solution!

Interview Confidence

Having recently applied for a new and challenging role at work I begun to have doubts about my ability to be successful in the potential role. It was a repeating self-destruct behavior I recognized, but had never successfully combated in the past, so I sought a new approach by looking to Hypnotherapy to help me re-direct my energy more positively. Louise developed a script to help me focus on my strengths and build my self-confidence, looking on the positive skills I knew I had to offer. The work has helped me enormously, with Louise providing a personalised MP3 recording for self -confidence  I’ve also been able to continue building stronger foundation.  Although I didn’t get the job this time, it was an immensely positive experience and has helped me grow as an individual and focus my career development in another more direction.

Crisis Interventions and Sleep

The download has worked an absolute treat and  I have slept so much better for the last week, so thank you so much.  I am feeling considerably stronger about things.

Driving Phobia

"I came to see Louise as I've had a serious phobia of driving for 22 years.

I had a car accident at the age of 17, about 6 months after passing my driving test. It shook me up so much that I have only been behind the wheel a handful of times. And hated it each time. Even "imagining" getting into a car gave me heart palpitations, cold sweats, and a general feeling of panic and fear.

I had come to a point in my life where I craved my freedom again (I'm 39!) and I had to drive my husband back from a hospital visit where he was unable to drive. I booked an appointment with Louise for some extra help as she could see I was clearly struggling and embarrassed.

Louise took me through a series of gentle exercises initially and then she got me into a relaxed state with the power of her beautiful soothing voice and gentle commands. I was in a totally relaxed state. When I came out of the session, I felt like my whole body and soul had had a weight lifted off of it. That weight must have been my phobia!

I wasn't sure how the hypnotherapy could work as all I was feeling was relaxed. But it certainly made sense the next day...

I got into the car, started up the engine... drove the car for a full hour, with a huge grin on my face. Whatever Louise does, she is magic. I hope she changes your life too. "
