A note about Child Hypnotherapy
A hypnotherapist may agree to treat your child, but many do not have the correct skills or knowledge to do this safely and effectively and it is worth checking whether they have had specific and adequate training to treat children/young adults. Not all hypnotherapists will have an up to date CRB/DBS.
I am trained to treat PTSD and am an EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) Therapist. I use EMDR in conjunction with NLP, EFT and Mindfulness.
My very busy practice is just off the motorway close to Ikea and I also have a practice in Rodney Street, Liverpool, Merseyside. I am a member of the General Hypnotherapy Register and IBS therapists Register and on a Register of Child Hypnotherapists as trained by Lynda Hudson, the Child Psychotherapist/Hypnotherapist and author of Scripts and Strategies in Hypnotherapy with Children.
I am down to earth in my approach, up to date with the latest techniques, professional and confidential. I try to be as flexible as I can when offering appointments and will also visit your home if necessary.
Training, qualifications & experience
- 20 years in NHS in nursing/admin/management. Registered Advanced Adult and Child Clinical Hypnotherapist. I am also fully insured and CRB checked.
I have recently been involved in a documentary on addictions with a German (RTL) TV company.
Specialist training in:
IBS by the founder of the IBS Register. I belong to the IBS therapists register.
Children and Young Adults - trained by Lynda Hudson who is also an accomplished author on the subject and one of few Hypnotherapists who specialise in this area. I use a solution focused approach for children, as in my opinion this works best. Cognitive behavioural therapy techniques are offered, but in the more ideal state of mind of hypnosis.
I have special training in:
Anxiety and phobias
Exam pressures and study skills
Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome
I am a special interest and experience in Autism, ADD, ADHD, OCD and other ASD symptoms.
I am also a member of the British Psychological Society.
I visit schools to teach ratio breathing and relaxation techniques for anxiety as well as a trained Youth Mindfullness Kids Program trainer for primary school children.
After many successes in weight loss and hypnotic gastric band hypnotherapy, culminating in my appearance in a national newspaper and appearing in local radio, I now advise other hypnotherapists on this area of hypnotherapy.
My experience in the NHS gives me a useful medical insight and this has helped me refer some of my clients onto other areas when I have felt that their problem is more physical than psychological.
I am also fully qualified in EFT (tapping) and NLP.
