‘19 Certificate of Excellence

I offer both Counselling and Hypnotherapy. My style of counselling is known as person centered, I trained using the humanistic model at Bristol University. This model deals with the ways in which individuals perceive themselves consciously rather than how a counsellor can interpret unconscious thoughts or ideas. It is a non-authoritarian approach that allows you to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, you will discover you own solutions. I am there to offer compassion, to listen without judgement and to encourage, support and guide you without interrupting or interfering with your process of self-discovery. It works extremely well for anyone who would be would like to gain more self-confidence, a stronger sense of identity, and the ability to build healthy interpersonal relationships and to trust his or her own decisions could benefit from person-centered therapy. It can also be very helpful for those who suffer from grief, depression or anxiety. Counselling will give you an opportunity to think and talk about yourself and concerns that you often cannot do with family and friends. I offer a safe, confidential space where you can talk about yourself and your life. To listen with no judgment, helping you to make the changes that you would like to happen, working towards improving your life and well-being. I am registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within the BACP ethical framework. Helpful information sheets are available on line which give a fuller explanation of what might be expected during therapy. www.bacp.co.uk/seeking_therapist. I also offer Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH). Chances are when you think of hypnotherapy, you either imagine a swinging pocket watch or a hapless audience member being made to cluck like a chicken on stage in the name of entertainment. Neither of these preconceptions is true. Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy combines cognitive behavioural therapy and hypnosis with theories based on modern neuroscience. CBH is a collaborative process, not simply ‘done to you’. The object is to enable you to essentially become your own therapist over time learning self-hypnosis and mindfulness thus leading to more helpful ways of thinking and behaving. Over the course of the sessions, you will learn relaxation techniques which you can apply yourself and then hypnosis and self hypnosis to deepen the effects and heighten feelings of confidence. The client therapist collaboration is very important. Goal setting is an important part of the process it is important to be specific and have a time frame to work within. The principle of CBH is when you are fully relaxed and in a hypnotic state, this is when you are more susceptible to positive suggestion. Therefore each treatment is bespoke for each client as we are all different and have our own unique ways of seeing our worlds even if it is unhelpful at times. When choosing my training it was imperative to me that the training I undertook was based on theory and evidence which it very much is. I studied at the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy in London. My accredited Hypnotherapy training is the only externally verified hypnotherapy training programme approved by The British Psychological Society Learning Centre. I am a registered Practitioner with the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR). I am fully insured for professional and public liability. Hypnotherapy is recognised by the British Medical Association (BMA), the American Medical Association and the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE). Hypnotherapy has proven to be a safe and effective alternative that can help with a wide range of problems in just a few hours of treatment. If you are hoping to be taken back to a previous life in a trance then I am not the hypnotherapist for you. If however you want to experience effective treatment and have a desire to make positive changes in your life and believe that hypnotherapy will work for you then look no further. As Albert Einstein was quoted as saying “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we create them”. I am also a trained Smoking Cessation Hypnotherapist. This is a two-hour session, a treatment that is bespoke for each individual. Both disciplines can help with a multitude of issues. To establish if it can help you please call or email for a free informal chat. Counselling per hour is £45 Hypnotherapy per hour is £70 Smoking cessation is £130 for two-hour session.
