Perhaps there is a specific issue or behaviour that you want to sort out, feeling depressed or anxious, or you have a specific goal such as stopping smoking, losing weight, overcoming nerves or enhancing self esteem, or cope better with discomfort or pain? Or maybe you need help to break through obstacles to rejuvenate your life, and deal with issues or conflicts when things just don`t seem to be working in quite the way you want and deserve.
Sometimes we can feel we have lost our way in life, career, and just do not know exactly what it is that is holding us back. Maybe you just don`t feel like yourself anymore. I do understand the courage sometimes needed to take the decision to move on. In offering a safe and caring space you to grow, I promise to listen to you with an open heart and not judge you.
I passionately believe that all of us have the capacity to change, but may need some guidance and help on how to do it. I will listen to you carefully to understand what your issue or desired outcome is.
There is too long a list of problems which may be amenable to hypnotherapy to cover all of them here. I use hypnotherapy and psychotherapy with various issues such as: anxiety, panic, phobias, unwanted habits and addictions eg smoking, over eating, disrupted sleep patterns, lack of confidence and low self esteem, fear of examinations and public speaking, allergies and skin disorders, migraine and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)......it has also been of value in the wider sphere of pain management and in the areas of both sporting and artistic performance enhancement.
