When you focus on what’s wrong or imperfect, it naturally activates many negative reactions; anger, frustration, resentment, self-criticism. Hypnotherapy works by shifting both the direction and intensity of focus by encouraging positive alterations to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
I provide you with a safe, confidential and totally non-judgemental space. You will remain in complete control and I will talk you through the process, which simply involves you going into deep state of relaxation, remaining conscious of where you are throughout.
Hypnotherapy is widely recommended as a treatment for stress related issues, habit breaking and for a range of long-term conditions. In recent years, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recognised hypnotherapy as a treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Anyone can be hypnotised as long as they want to be and have an ability to concentrate. I cannot force you to go into hypnosis against your will. It is not appropriate for very young children or people with certain mental disabilities.
I’m a professional Hypnotherapist working from my consultation room in Petersfield, Hampshire near the Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire borders.
My approach is modern and effective and my aim is to get you the best results in the shortest time. I am not about finger clicking, swinging watches or telling you to sleeeep…. During my hypnosis sessions, you are relaxed but remain in control throughout.
After 25 years business experience, in 2015, I began my training with The National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy and in 2016, I completed the Foundation Course followed by the Certificate Course to gain my Certificate in Hypno-Psychotherapy – CHP(NC).
Following a Humanistic and Integrative Hypno-Psychotherapy/Hypnotherapy programme, I am trained in the theory and practice of humanistic psychotherapy, solution focused therapy, mind body therapy with a particular emphasis on Ericksonian techniques. This integrative style means that I am able to match the style of therapy to suit your individuals needs and personality.
Life before being a Hypnotherapist was a very different one. Between 2002 and 2013, I started, grew and eventually sold a successful travel business, Planet Cruise. In 2010, we were placed 5th in the Sunday Times Fasttrack 100 businessess reaching a turnover of £33m and since 2008, I was the face of cruise holidays on TV by presenting a weekly live Cruise TV show on Sky, Freeview and Virgin.
Bringing all this experience and training together with a strong natural empathy, enables me to help you to find ways to live your life to its full potential.
