Are you ready to become the person you’ve always wanted to be?
Have you ever come across someone who displayed characteristics that you would love to call your own? Or have you had a momentary glimpse of the sort of life you would like to live? Perhaps you have a strong feeling that things needs to change and that something in your life is lacking. Not feeling fulfilled or leading a meaningful life can lead to low mood, destructive behaviour and conditions such as anxiety, stress and depression amongst other things. It can develop gradually, unnoticeable, until one day you realise that life has simply lost it’s sparkle.
You may experience:
- Sleep problems
- Out of control eating habits
- Rumination of the past and fretting about your future
- Relationship struggles
- Fear of public speaking
- Social anxiety
Negative thinking can be relentless and circular
When you struggle to fix problems in your life it is tempting to reach for coping strategies that help you feel better quick. From an evolutionary perspective we are programmed for instant gratification when times are dire. No wonder you reach for comfort food, have that extra glass of wine, smoke more than usual or spend way too much time on social media to distract yourself from the racing thoughts going on in your mind.
Feeling out of control and rudderless can have a huge impact on your personal relationships as well as your performance at work. When your confidence dwindles it is easy to compare yourself to others and not feeling good enough. Negative thinking can become very circular and obsessive and your health may deteriorate as a consequence.
Doing the same thing will lead you to the same outcome
Asking for help takes bravery. It means stepping out of your comfort zone yet it can be one of the most liberating things you;ve ever done. By taking that first big step of calling a professional you are already on your way to a new future, displaying that you are considering doing something very different which in turn will direct you to a new outcome.
When you come to see me, we’d focus on your preferred future, who you want 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. A life that is ideally suited to YOU. We work on strategies to change the underlying core beliefs that you may have been telling yourself for many years to free yourself from unhelpful thought patterns and we use hypnosis to help you make the reprogramming smooth and effective.
I am passionate about helping people living full and happy lives. We all have the ability to fulfil our potential yet anxiety and stress can be so overwhelming and detrimental that we loose perspective. Life becomes black and white and yet we know that it is always various shades of grey.
Clinical hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist
What you need to know is that I am a qualified clinical hypnotherapist and psychotherapist (CPHT) practicing in a clinic in South West London as well as online. In addition I hold a diploma in Medical Hypnotherapy from CHS which makes me qualified to work with those suffering chronic pain and health conditions, ongoing medical treatment as well as those in palliative care.
My methodologies are a combination of the latest neuroscience, CBT, NLP, Solution Focused BRIEF Therapy and hypnosis, meaning I am able to use a variety of techniques to make sure you get the support you need.
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 whilst finding solutions. 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”Birgitta Ronn
The nitty gritty
I am fully insured and have an enhanced DBS certificate which means I can work with adults and young people alike. I am a member of the following regulatory bodies; CNHC (Complimentary & Natural Healthcare Council, NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy), AfSFH) (Association for solution focused hypnotherapy) and NCP (National council of Psychotherapists). I am obliged to abide by their strict guidelines and code of conduct for therapists* and it is my duty to help you feel better in as few sessions as possible.
It is important that you understand that to achieve change you have to be willing to engage in the therapeutic process. The sessions are a collaborative endeavour and should be treated as such. For this reason I cannot guarantee results.
*The NHS strongly recommends that you only seek a professional therapist who belong to one or more of these accrediting bodies.
