My Approach

Mindfulness-Based Therapies

 

Mindfulness-Based Therapies including MBCT and MBSR have been scientifically shown to be an effective complement to a wide variety of medical and psychological conditions including: 

 

  • Anxiety

  • Chronic pain

  • Mood disorders 

  • Prevention of depressive relapse

  • Sleep disturbances 

  • Stress disorders

 

Please see the Mindfulness Therapies page for more information on the treatments and what to expect from sessions.  

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy

 

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a form of talking therapy that can help you manage 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.

 

Cognitive and behavioural approaches are at the forefront of modern hypnotherapy. Behavioural hypnotherapy helps clients change their habits and behaviours by conceptualising their problems using CBT methods and then using hypnosis to embed these positive changes. Cognitive hypnotherapy works in a very similar way but focuses on the thoughts and beliefs associated with behaviour, challenging unhelpful thoughts and then using hypnotherapy to help clients change their beliefs and think differently about things on a more subconscious level. Both are highly evidence-based, backed by empirical research and focus on an open and collaborative relationship between therapist and client.

My role 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.

Ego-Strengthening Hypnotherapy

 

I recorded this Ego-Strengthening Hypnosis for anyone looking to build their self-esteem and confidence or simply to reap the benefits of the relaxing effects of hypnotherapy. Repetition is the mother of all learning and it is designed to be listened to 3-4 times a week. 

 

Ego-strength is universally accepted as a significant predictor of psychotherapeutic success (Kernberg, et al., 1972). In this context ‘ego’ does not refer to a sense of arrogance or self-importance but more an individual’s overall adaptability and personal resourcefulness when it comes to facing and dealing with their problems.  

 

Find a quiet space, relax, think positively and immerse yourself in this 20 minute exercise.
