For the past 15 years I have been working with clients to help them develop an understanding of themselves, and make the changes in their outlooks and lives that will give them joy and fulfilment. The aims of my work are to reduce suffering and distress, and to help clients find ways to cope more effectively with the demands of everyday living by developing insight and a sense of self-mastery. As a Psychotherapist I have an integrative approach, utilising many tools and techniques to achieve rapid and lasting results. As an Advanced Ericksonian Hypnotherapist I consider how unconscious thoughts affect current behaviour Hypnotherapy utilises the hypnotic state of altered awareness to bypass the limiting beliefs of the conscious mind. Habits, phobias, stress, unhappiness and dissatisfaction are often the result of being locked into repetitive, ineffective patterns. Hypnotherapy provides the safe, relaxed, beneficial conditions which enable a person to access his/her own experience-based capabilities and resources to effect change and personal growth. The Health and Education Authority confirms the popularity, medical credibility and scientific validity of hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy has no relation to stage hypnosis, nor does it impose behaviour or manipulate memory. It is an interpersonal process in which the client initiates change, and the therapist supports and reinforces that which the client considers and desires. I offer an initial free consultation in a safe and compassionate space. Please feel free to contact me by telephone or email.
