Professional Hypnotherapist

Integrative Psychotherapist & Hypnotherapist

Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming

Offering a personalised,confidential wellbeing service which provides a caring, listening approach to understand more fully your specific needs and issues. I use a combination of hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming  to create with you an agreed personalised therapeutic pathway. This enables improvement in your general wellbeing as well specific issues such as:

  • Emotional Issues: Anxiety, Stress, etc.
  • Health: Weight Control, Quitting Smoking, etc.
  • Social: Confidence, Self Esteem, etc.
  • Performance: Exam Nerves, Public Speaking, Motivation, etc.

Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation and concentration induced by suggestion within a state of heightened awareness. The state of hypnosis is completely natural and you are always in control.

To an onlooker it resembles sleep, for indeed the client may have their eyes closed. The word ‘hypnos’ is Greek for sleep.

As a client you are far from being asleep, experiencing heightened awareness. You still have overall control of your mind, whilst being open to the suggestions given by the hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapy works well with emotional issues such as anxiety, stress, habits, phobias, loss and separation, pre-test nerves, panic,  healing the adult survivor of child abuse; health issues such as weight control, quit smoking, sleep, pain control, overcoming depression; social issues such as self esteem, confidence, motivation;performance issues such as learning experiences, exam nerves, study techniques,driving test,enhancing creativity, sports performance and  public performance.

Integrative Psychotherapist

Psychotherapy assists the client to emerge from the present by making positive changes for the future to achieve goals and realise dreams. As the therapist my role is to understand the presenting issue and experiences, explore the past and help the client to map out the future in order to achieve healing.

A client comes to the therapy in the present time with a presenting issue or concern. This concern may be so great that it envelopes or completely surrounds their sense of self and they wish to be free of it. First of all the past needs to be mapped out in order to understand the presenting issue. The past issue should be faced, explored and healed in order to move forward. Psychotherapy is active and the use of practical wisdom. By using a multi modal, integrative approach a client's individual needs can be met instead of a "one that fits all" approach. The approaches used include:

  •    Person Centred Counselling
  •     Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  •     Transactional Analysis
  •     Psychoanalysis

In this way an appropriate approach can be used at different stages of the client's therapy.
