Counsellor and Hypnotherapist
“Change your thoughts and you change your world”NV Peale
I have a firm belief in the capacity for change in all people who seek it, and I consider it a privilege accompanying those individuals on their journey towards a life more open to choice, hope and positivity.
My counselling and hypnotherapy practice is informed by formal academic training together with my own life experiences. I use this knowledge and experience to help my clients to increase their personal power and resilience, which provides them the opportunity for growth and self-discovery. I have complete confidence that we can work together towards your future happiness and emotional freedom.
I have successfully helped past clients tackle many issues including:
HypnotherapyMy interest in hypnotherapy stemmed from my work as a counsellor and the acknowledgement that sometimes a client would benefit from something more, to get them to where they want to be.
It is my belief that everybody has the ability to help themselves, and in practicing hypnotherapy, I work in ways that empower my client’s autonomy and their capacity to break through their limitations. During hypnosis your conscious mind will naturally only accept suggestions that are within your comfort zone and are beneficial to you. It is most effective when there is a genuine personal desire to make changes. The hypnotherapy techniques I use enable people to free their subconscious potential for solving their own problems. With a combination of Positive Suggestions and Visualisations, I offer help with; Confidence, Stress/Anxiety, Motivation, Self Sabotage, Weight Control, Smoking Cessation, Anger Management, Insomnia/Bad Dreams, Sports/Business Performance and much more.
I have found that hypnotherapy, either on its own or in addition to mainstream counselling methods, can be extremely effective in treating, managing and alleviating a large number of conditions. It is particularly useful for those clients whose physical or emotional problems stem from self limiting beliefs.
I look forward to helping you create the change you desire.
