I qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2007 and along with raising a large family, have a long and successful background in Public Health. Since qualifying I have helped many people overcome a variety of problems such as fears, phobias, anxiety, stress, weight loss, stopping smoking to name a few.
Hypnotherapy uses a trance like state to bring together the subconscious and conscious mind to work together in harmony, putting you back in control. It utilises the power of positive suggestion to help bring about change to our thoughts, behaviours and feelings.
It is very enjoyable,relaxing and also one of the oldest therapies. We go into trance many times a day, when we are daydreaming or just before we go to sleep and is a very pleasant state, and you will always be in control, awakening whenever you wish.
Hypnotherapy is used very successfully as a treatment for habit breaking, anxiety and stress related issues, fears and phobias and for many other conditions. It is also recognised by NICE, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence as a treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
I qualified as an Easibirthing Practitioner for Childbirth in 2012 training expectant women to use self-hypnosis, relaxation, visualisation and breathing methods to prepare mind and body for a natural birth. We also teach you to use hypnosis for pain management, helping you to go into labour feeling calm, confident and in and control.
I qualified as an Easibirth practitioner for Fertility in 2013 training those undergoing fertility treatment or have problems with fertility, to help them use relaxation techniques, reducing stress thereby enhancing the chance of conceiving either naturally or with treatment.
