Are you suffering from anxiety and stress? Perhaps it is holding you back from doing what you really want to do? When was the last time you felt calm, confident and in control?
Anxiety and stress related conditions can show up in many areas of our life. You may be sleeping badly or not at all, ruminating incessantly about the past or worrying about the future. This makes us feel out of control and unable to help ourselves. When our confidence takes a knock it could affect the important relationships in our lives, leaving us feeling even lonelier and more isolated.
Some of us tries to cope by distracting ourselves with things that make us feel better short term. We overeat, we drink too much or we might spend more time than usual on social media to get away from our racing mind.
It may be time to ask for help
If this sounds familiar then Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can be incredibly helpful in the quest to get your mojo back. When you come to see me we focus on your preferred future, who you used to be, the outcome you really want without dwelling excessively on your past. This helps you to set goals and to move towards a happier and healthier way of life. We will work on a strategy to change the underlying story you have been telling yourself for many years to free yourself from limiting beliefs.
How is it done?
I use a combination of talk therapy based on the latest neuroscience, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Solution Focused BRIEF Therapy combined with clinical hypnosis. Hypnosis itself is a calm and wonderful state of focused attention, very similar to day dreaming, where we can access the part of your brain which is receptive to changing negative thinking habits and behaviour. This helps you create brand new and more positive ways of thinking.
Hypnotherapy is one of the most effective ways of reprogramming subconscious blocks that stops us from living happy, fulfilling and carefree lives”
I am absolutely passionate about helping people living full and happy lives. Anxiety and stress can be overwhelming and detrimental to seeing things in a clear perspective – life can take on a black and white quality and we risk spending our lives not fulfilling our goals of how we would really like to live.
Building on your existing strengths and accomplishments we find a strategy that is personalised to you and your goal by using a range of tools and methodologies to work out what would be best suited for you.
The nuts and bolts
I am fully insured and have an enhanced DBS certificate which means I can work with adults and young people alike. As a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH), the Association for solution focused hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and NCP (National council of Psychotherapists) I am obliged to abide by their strict guidelines and code of conduct for therapists.*
‘My sessions with Birgitta have been a life changing. I used to get really cross with most people, especially my kids, and I was always anxious and stressed, feeling I had not done enough. Through hypnosis with Birgitta I have learned that only I am in charge of my future and that my thoughts shape my reality. I love, love, love the deep relaxation and will come back for a top up when life gets the better of me. Thank you.’
As a therapist, it is my duty to help you feel better in as few sessions as possible which is why it’s important that you want to make the changes and be willing to engage in the therapeutic process. The sessions are a team effort and should be treated as such. For this reason I cannot guarantee results.
*The NHS strongly recommmends that you only seek a professional therapist who belong to one or more of these accrediting bodies.
