Hypnotherapy & Counselling Specialist
One of my favourite feelings in the world is the feeling I get from helping people. Hence, the reason for my profession.
If you are struggling with issues such as anxiety, depression, self doubt, a racing mind, please know that you are not alone. I’ve been there. I suffered severe anxiety, panic attacks and depression for half of my life. Thankfully, I am now in a much lighter place. So believe me, if I can get better, you can too!
As your Counsellor and Clinical Hypnotherapist,
I aim to:
1) Be a safe space where you can feel understood, respected and validated.
2) Be a sharp detective and:
a) find the beliefs and programs that are not serving you and help you change them.
b) find the strengths, qualities and resources which you already possess but perhaps have forgotten or aren’t aware of.
3) Empower you, with new skills so that when our work together is done you walk away with a positive sense of self and a handful of tools for living a happier, calmer, more fulfilling life.
What I can help you with
I have worked with many clients wanting to make positive changes to their lives in areas such as:
Why Choose Counselling with Hypnotherapy?
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a treatment where the client is induced into a trance/hypnosis, through deep relaxation, focused attention, or both, to treat a variety of conditions.
It’s well known that most elite athletes use hypnosis to enhance their performance. What is not so well known, is that just as physical skills can be learnt quicker and more effortlessly through hypnosis, so can mental and emotional skills.
Through science we now know that you have the capacity to rewire your brain and change old habitual ways of thinking, behaving and feeling. This re-wiring can be done through practice and repetition, or through hypnosis which is quicker and therefore takes less effort.
What is a trance/hypnosis?
We all go in and out of trance/hypnosis several times a day. Ever read a book, watched a movie or got so focused on something that you lost track of time, surroundings, even bodily sensations? Maybe you even had a headache and forgot all about it? That’s an everyday trance!
How does it work?
Being in hypnosis helps us bypass the conscious mind. This enables direct communication with the subconscious mind. When this happens:
• new skills can be learnt quicker and with less effort
• troublesome events or personal problems can be reframed easier
• trauma can be processed and transferred quickly through the limbic system to the long-term memory part of the brain, thereby calming the nervous system
• destructive beliefs and programs can be changed to constructive and helpful ones
• the creativity and wisdom of the subconscious mind brings about solutions and “aha” moments that could not be conceived consciously
• new neural pathways are created
