Let’s get you on your way

Whether you get anxious at times or in certain situations, find it difficult to relax or manage stress, struggle with addictive behaviour or with confidence issues, Cognitive Hypnotherapy is an effective way of getting to the root of the issue. Whatever the problem is, if it’s limiting your ability to enjoy life, it can be changed.

Are You Feeling Stuck?

We’ve all experienced times in our lives when we’ve felt stuck or limited in some way. Whether it’s because we were too afraid to go for something we really wanted, perhaps felt powerless to a destructive habit or overwhelmed by stress, anxiety and negative thoughts. We’ve all struggled in one way or another and often aren’t aware of the destructive coping strategies which prevent us from being the person we want to be. We are all fellow strugglers, And of course, I am no exception.

What I have found to be true is that we do not have to remain stuck. We always have a choice, and there will always be a way forward. Sometimes we need to dig deep to confront the things that prevent us from being happy in our own skin, to be with the person we are, and to live in a way which lines up with who we really want to be. And that’s why I’m here.


What next?

Together we can explore what’s really going on underneath. It is often the case that we are strangers to ourselves. Sometimes it takes the right questions to uncover what it is we need to understand about ourselves in order to let go of a problem and move forward with our lives. And the answers can very often surprise us.

As the therapist Dr Brian Roet says “everything is about something else”. So be gentle with yourself and adopt an open-minded and curious approach to what might arise during the sessions

You will find that I am non-judgemental, open-minded, warm, encouraging and practical. I will meet you wherever you are at and commit myself towards helping you find solutions. I will work with you so that you can move forward into the life that you want.

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a really effective way to personal transformation – and happily, we’re all capable of tremendous change and growth if we want it.


You are NOT lost or broken!

‘Finding yourself’ or ‘fixing yourself’ – That’s not really how it works. You aren’t lost or broken. 

“Your true self is right there, buried under cultural conditioning, other people’s opinions, and inaccurate conclusions you drew as a kid that become your beliefs about who you are. Finding yourself, or fixing yourself is actually returning to yourself. An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering of who you were before the world got its hands on you” (Emily McDowell is right)

Sometimes changing and growing is about unlearning – of all the stuff the world tells us we need to be, to be good enough.  

With Cognitive Hypnotherapy, it’s possible to explore how the world’s influences have impacted on your sense of self-worth and identity. It can bring you to a place where you can feel stronger, more confident and more at peace with who you are.

Let go of the past... It's never too late to rewrite your story!

We don’t have to let our past define who we are. We all experience traumas one way or another when we’re growing up and going through life. No one gets away unscathed. Sometimes life can be truly tough, we must fight to survive. As a result we can get stuck in the pain of our past and become trapped in a narrative which doesn’t help us – perhaps with thoughts such as “bad things always happen to me”.

The great news is that actually, we GROW through what we go through and I am a firm believer that out of our pain comes our power. We get to choose the narrative of our lives. Life is not what happens to us but how we respond to it. If you’re struggling with things that have happened recently or perhaps long ago, or you’re feeling dis-empowered by how things currently are, I invite you to get in touch and together we can reframe your experiences to your advantage. That means you can feel empowered to turn the page of a bright new chapter. 

Social Anxiety?

We all want to feel comfortable in our own skin.  Most of us care about what others think of us, at least to some extent, of course we do.  Friendships with others is vital for our sense of well-being. We all want the confidence to be ourselves with others without fear of judgement or rejection. If you feel stressed at the idea of meeting new people, being the centre of attention, or talking in front of groups of people, it can really put limits on your life. 

Cognitive Hypnotherapy can be the ideal solution to overcoming social anxiety, freeing you up to have fun and be yourself without worrying about what anyone else thinks of you.
