My Approach

I work both face-to-face and online using a combination of evidence-based coping strategies, Mindfulness therapies, EMDR and Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy tailored to suit my client’s individual needs.

My Role

My role as a therapist is to provide support, advice and techniques to help you achieve your goals in a safe, non-judgemental environment where you feel comfortable to share your problems.


The more actively involved you are and willing to participate during treatment the more successful therapy will be. Being committed to the treatment plan will help you build self-confidence and you will benefit quicker and more powerfully from cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy.

Stress

As the symptoms of anxiety can vary considerably from person to person treatment plans are always tailored specifically to an individual’s needs.

Please do not hesitate to call or email me for a free initial consultation to discuss how best I can help you.

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a form of talking therapy that can help you overcome your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is based on the idea that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are all interconnected and that negative thoughts and feelings can leave you trapped in a vicious cycle. CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from the past.

In addition to the very strong research supporting the use of CBT for a wide range of conditions, such as anxiety, there is now good evidence to suggest that when hypnotherapy is combined with CBT the resulting treatment is significantly more effective than CBT alone.

Therapy Sessions

Therapy sessions last between 1-1.5 hours (sessions might run longer if we are practicing longer hypnoses or meditations as part of Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy/Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction).

 

My approach to therapy centres on teaching clients strategies to help them overcome their issues - these include meditations, psychoeducation, hypnotherapy and coping strategies.

 

Sufficient time is also set aside for clients to talk abut the different issues that may come up between session without any pressure or time constraints.

Cancellation Policy

A minimum of 24 hours’ notice to be given when re-arranging or cancelling an appointment, otherwise the full cost of the session will be payable. Exceptions will of course be made for emergencies.
