Using an integrated approach of CBT and Hypnosis, I will work with you to introduce change at the very deepest levels. I’ll explain and teach hypnosis and self-hypnosis according to known principles in psychology. This not only helps treat you, but it also equips you with transferable skills that you can use across many life situations.
Issues I work with
Perhaps you have a habit you want to break? Or you lack confidence in the workplace? Do you have a fear that limits your enjoyment of life? Maybe you lack confidence in who you are or how you look?
Whether your issues are related to social anxiety, stress or phobias, low self-esteem, weight, smoking, unhelpful habits; or whether you are concerned about an important exam, interview, or presentation, I can help you achieve lasting change to transform your quality of life.
In the state of hypnosis and with CBT we can reset the way we think and in doing so change the things we do, or how we feel, for the better.
I work collaboratively with my clients to set clear and specific therapeutic goals that we can measure progress against at every session. It is my passion to help clients experience lasting change and to be equipped with valuable tools and techniques that will spill over positively into all aspects of life.
I integrate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Hypnosis in my practice. My approach is entirely evidence based, meaning I only use techniques that have satisfactory clinical evidence for their efficacy.
The CBT element of my approach helps you to understand the thoughts and feelings that influence your behaviours. During treatment you learn how to identify and change unhelpful thought patterns that have a negative influence on your behaviour and emotions, so that you can take control of how you interpret and deal with experiences.
Hypnosis is a special way of using various naturally occurring psychological and physiological states. There are quite a few myths about Hypnosis; for example, Hypnosis is definitely not a state of sleep or unconsciousness. Most clients report being aware of everything that happens, although slipping deeper into hypnosis at moments may give you the sense you ‘drifted out’. Hypnotherapy is a collaborative process in which you allow yourself to follow the guidance of the therapist by using your imagination to evoke positive emotions and rehearse behavioural change. Hypnotic suggestion is about experiencing certain helpful ideas at a level profound enough to directly influence your emotions and behaviour. Psychological and emotional problems can often be seen as a result of negative thinking, whereas Hypnotherapy offers positive ideas that lead to improvement.
