How I can help you
The techniques I use.
Overview of my services.
As a hypnotherapist I work in collaboration with my clients to achieve hypnosis and then suggest powerfully crafted thoughts, ideas and visualisations that introduce deep levels of change. Through the process of working together we examine the scripts that your mind is playing and create more resourceful, positive and powerful scripts that help to change the way you think, feel and behave.
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy integrates hypnosis and hypnotherapy with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). We’ll work together really collaboratively to understand what your issue or problem is and map out a working model of how the issue or problem works. Then supporting you to become aware of the thoughts and feelings that influence your behaviour and the behavioural patterns that reinforce the negative thinking. As you will discover it is a cycle that, once understood, can be broken and redirected.
Mindfulness brings calm and space to your life, I will work with you to help you develop your own practice, allowing you to step back from your thoughts and emotions, more information about Mindfulness is here.
After a successful career in Human Resources in the corporate world I decided to retrain as a business coach and therapist. Initially focusing on nutrition, a lifelong interest, I studied and qualified as a nutritional advisor.
Whilst studying it soon became clear to me that knowing what to eat and why is only a small part of the puzzle. The mind, behaviours and attitudes to food are what really drives our relationship with food. This sparked an interest and understanding in what drives our behaviour, how the mind operates and how to achieve lasting change.
As a result, I went on to study hypnotherapy and neurolinguistic programming (NLP), cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy, mindfulness and meditation which I combine with traditional coaching techniques learnt during my HR career and through formal study with the Institute of Leadership & Management.
I use these techniques to help people achieve their potential or to overcome the things in their lives that are holding them back.
I work as a trainer in corporate environments, delivering workshops in the areas of Mindfulness, Wellbeing, Stress & Anxiety Management and related areas. I also now work as a teacher at the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy.
I now firmly believe, through my own experience as well as study, that we have more power than we realise to make change in our lives. A good therapist and coach will help you learn how you can make that change and with practice and determination you’ll be surprised at what you can achieve. And honestly, this is the best bit for me, seeing people develop and grow and start to value themselves and reach their potential.
