You have probably come to this website because you are curious about therapy or hypnosis or maybe you have a particular issue and you are looking for a solution?
You will probably have tried other methods to solve your problems, but you are still struggling with unwanted habits, behaviours or emotions that are holding you back.
Using a variety of approaches including Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling, CBT, Hypnoanalysis, Inner Child Work, Imagery and NLP I can help you to deal with the issues you may have and to make the positive changes that you require.
I qualified as a Hypnotherapist in 2009. I chose to do a course that covered a range of different approaches and techniques. My belief is that one size doesn’t fit all in therapy, we are all individual and different approaches suit different people. This approach is very much the cornerstone of how I approach therapy today.
Hypnotherapy can be an incredibly powerful tool through which we can learn to let go of any negative beliefs or behaviours that are holding us back, we can learn to be happy in our own skin and to reach our potential. If you would like to discuss how you can make positive changes in your life, why not contact me today to find out more?

Hypnotherapy / Cognitive Hypnotherapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Psychotherapy / Counselling
Hypnosis is simply a state of heightened relaxation and altered awareness. It can feel as if you are very relaxed or daydreaming and is a natural form of consciousness which many people experience regularly.
Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy which uses the hypnotic state to bring about desired changes. It is usually a brief, strategic therapy - one that is aimed specifically at finding a resolution to your problems as quickly and safely as possible.
Cognitive hypnotherapy combines cognitive behavioural therapy and hypnosis with theories based on modern neuroscience.
This way of working is an "uncovering" therapy. It looks at the deeper roots or cause of an issue or problem. It helps to answer questions like: Why do I do this? and why do I feel this way? By using a set of techniques including Regression and Parks Inner Child Therapy (PICT) freedom can be gained from the past, eradicating the present day problem.
This is essentially a way of working that identifies and helps change specific unwanted responses or behaviours e.g. phobias, anxiety and panic attacks. It effectively focuses on the thoughts and feelings that drive the unwanted behaviour, the assumption being if our thoughts change, then so will the behaviour. As well as being a standalone therapy, CBT also works well combined with hypnotherapy techniques.
Psychotherapy is the application of psychological principles to the treatment of those suffering from disorders that are of psychological origin or that are exacerbated by psychological factors.
Counselling is simply a purposeful relationship in which one person helps another to help themselves. The aim is to provide help and support by the aid of an understanding, independent listener.
