Positivity Life Coaching and Hypnotherapy
I am a Life Coach, Counsellor and Hypnotherapist with additional training in Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy and Mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy, NLP and Thought Pattern Management. I offer help for many issues in particular, anxiety, depression, confidence issues, relationship difficulties, overcoming negative behaviours such as alcohol use, anger etc. I also deal with Chronic illness, PTSD and pain and IBS. I have a lot of experience working with teenagers and young adults and currently have a workshop in schools called STOP panic STAY Calm, and my online course of the same name is available at http://positivitylifecoaching.teachable.com/p/stop-panic-stay-calm.
I work one to one, with couples and in groups.
When working with clients my aim is to establish not only what created their problems and why but what is going on now to that is maintaining the problem. I follow a cognitive behavioural method helping the clients understand how their current issues are maintained through the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that feed them, we then create exits from this cycle using the abundance of techniques I have to eliminate the current feelings and behaviours but also the reasons why they occurred in the first place. Hypnotherapy is a very valuable tool in this as it enables the client to make fast effective and lasting change. When working on relationships it is usual to see one or both of the clients individually as well as in a couple as it invariably the individuals issues brought into a relationship eg. past history, lack of confidence, jealousy etc that are creating the friction. Learning a new way of communication of course is also essential.
Most clients start with a 2 hour intensive to enable us to get a full history, understand their past and the causes of their difficulties but it also gives enough time to get on with moving forward. After this the average course of treatment would be 6 sessions depending on the problem sometimes less sometimes more.
