I'm here to help you focus on the positives and feel good about the road ahead. I'm easy going, approachable and keen to help you out of your dark places.
I use solution focused hypnotherapy to find the best solution for you: to eliminate your fears of anxiety, depression, or any phobias you may have.
Many suffer for a long time before seeking help, either because GP waiting lists are so long or because they don't realise the effectiveness of treatments like hypnotherapy. I'm here to help you now so you move forward with your life.
Solution focused hypnotherapy is a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) neuro linguistic programming (NLP) and hypnosis. I am focused on helping individuals to heal, energise, and become aware of their inner strengths. My promise is to be there for you every step of your journey.
Areas of special interest and experience include:
My background was in the Armed Forces. When I finished my Royal Navy service in the late 90's I felt like a square peg in a round hole. Civilian life was very difficult to adjust to, and I started to suffer with anxiety. My GP referred me for counselling sessions, but these were not very effective for me. There wasn't much help back then for ex-service people, so I decided to undertake my own research. One afternoon I read an article online written by Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg- who are solution focused hypnotherapists in the USA. I decided to try hypnotherapy myself, at my own expense, and after my first session felt instantly much calmer!
My further research into anxiety, phobias and depression encouraged me to become a therapist myself. I enrolled with the Clifton Practice Bristol- the gold standard of hypnotherapy training-and re-trained to become a Solution focused hypnotherapist.
My training was intense, it deepened my knowledge, I finally understood how the mind worked - which was a revelation to me. I've never looked back since, it's been a great journey. I am very empathetic, focused, and dedicated to helping people become the very best versions of themselves.
My job is extremely rewarding when I witness the change in my clients quickly. My motivation is for my clients to feel self worth, to have self confidence, and to move forward with their lives. Solution focused hypnotherapy is positive, uplifting and relaxing!
