Smoking (and vaping) are becoming more and more socially unacceptable as well as increasingly expensive - let alone the well known risks to your health. Let me help you kick the habit and move forward to a smoke free life.
Anxiety is not uncommon although its severity can vary significantly from person to person. I can help you manage both your anxiety levels and your response to whenever an attack occurs.
Many of us (myself included) find our clothes become a little tighter as we get older. Some of us wish we could fill out our wardrobe that little bit more snugly. Whatever you would like to manage about your weight, I can help.
Stress afflicts us all in many and varied ways - and from a number of sources, which often shift in form and intensity. There are many tools to help you manage your stress and come to terms with your individual stressors. I can show you how to use some of them.
While a level of caution and wariness is often a healthy and appropriate response to a potentially hazardous situation, this can get out of hand with a phobia. I can work with you to reduce your sensitivity to potential triggers, whilst leaving a sensible level of self-protection.
Lack of sleep can be debilitating, physically and mentally. Depending on the specific issue, there are a number of approaches that can be employed, whether you are suffering from nightmares, night terrors (which are different), nocturnal enuresis (bed wetting), snoring or just regular insomnia.
Sometimes we all find ourselves stuck in a rut, at work, at play or at home. Maybe you lack self confidence, or have a fear of failure that prevents you from doing something - for example making that sales call or learning something new. We can work together to identify your goals and set you on the path you want to go down.
Money is one of the biggest causes of stress and anxiety - overspending, excessive caution, hiding bills in the hope they will go away, pressure over a large windfall. These are all very common. I do not offer financial advice (There are many excellent Independent Financial Advisers for that) but will help you to manage whatever emotional turmoil money is causing you.
There are a number of physical ailments that respond to hypnotherapy. Please note that I DO NOT offer a ‘cure’ although I can help you manage some of your symptoms.
I am able to assist with the following conditions among others: Allergies including hay fever; Tinnitus (ringing in the ears); Skin Picking and Nail Biting; Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS); Headaches (including migraines and cluster headaches); Bruxism (teeth clenching/grinding), Pain, Hypertension (high blood pressure).
Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Trauma and PTSD can affect anyone. It is not solely experienced by the armed forces or emergency personnel. It can be described as a normal reaction to an abnormal event. Trauma can be triggered by loss, accident, injury, assault, or just witnessing an event beyond the normal range of experience. Trauma and PTSD are unequivocally NOT the result of weakness or character flaw. If you have been diagnosed with PTSD by your GP, experience recurring intrusive thoughts or nightmares about a particular incident or feel hyper-vigilant and constantly on edge, then I may be able to help. I am experienced in the use of a technique call EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing which has brought relief to traumatised people world wide for a number of years.
