Helping people change their lives

I believe that, just as life can throw us off course at times, we also have all that we need inside us to get back on track, its just that it can get a bit lost sometimes and we need a little help to find it again. Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a great way to do this.  By talking together and discovering what's holding you back I can put together an individual and flexible treatment plan that suits your particular needs.  Unlike some one size fits all therapies I have a wide variety of exciting techniques to choose from, which means we can adapt and change your programme to suit your needs and ensure you are helped in the best way possible to towards the future you want.

I come from a backgound in advice work which means that I have a lot of experience working with people who are facing life’s challenges; perhaps feeling lost, stuck or confused and needing help to know how to move forwards.  My ethos has always been that the best way to help people is to guide them towards finding the solution that works best for them, not one imposed by others.  In my practice I use the training and knowledge I have gained to help empower people to help themselves.  We all have strengths and resources that sometimes get a bit lost and I believe that together we can help rediscover them and make them stronger.

I came to Cognitive Hypnotherapy via experiences with Psychodynamic Counselling and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.  Though both useful I found that, for myself, it was the fact that Cognitive Hypnotherapy had the power to not only change behaviours and enable the letting go of long held damaging beliefs, it could achieve this in a short period of time and that really made the difference.  It allows participants to put their difficulties behind them and move on with their live so much more quickly. 

When you come to see me we will develop an individually tailored bespoke programme of therapy that acknowledges your unique perspective on life. By keeping an open mind, and being curious about what works for you, we will work together to find out what makes the difference for you.

I also have a keen interest in helping families and with this in mind I have undertaken further training in Relationship Counselling with the Human Givens Institute who are leaders in their field.

I trained with The Quest Institute because it is renowned for teaching in a very holistic, flexible and adaptable way including techniques that take in to account the different ways people interact with their world and, that as a model of therapy it doesn’t have a one size fits all attitude. I am fully trained to provide this treatment with a Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy from the Quest Institute and additionally a Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD) validated by the National Council of Hypnotherapy (NCH), and I hold a Master Practitoner Certificate as an NLP Practitioner.   I operate under the Code of Ethics of both the NCH and the CNHC and am fully insured for public liability and indemnity.

So whether is concerns around anxiety, depression, fears, phobias, loss of self-confidence, low self-esteem or any other issue that's affecting your life, I’m really pleased you've come to take a look at my website and taken that first important step towards taking back control over your own life - see here to learn more about how I can help.  If you don’t see your particular difficulty listed don't worry, just give me a call so we can discuss how I can help.
