STRESS & ANXIETY

Talking to a professional counsellor about the stress and anxiety in your life can have an amazing therapeutic benefit.  In a safe, non-judgmental setting, you will be guided to organize and rationalize your thoughts and emotions and negative thinking will be challenged.  Hypnotherapy can give you effective coping mechanisms and implant positive messages so you will find healthier and more positive ways of dealing with difficult situations.


POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER

The fight or flight part of our minds can often hold on to traumatic events in order to protect us from putting ourselves in the same danger again.  This constant holding on to a highly stressful situation is not necessary and has a hugely debilitating effect on your life.  Hypnotherapy is a highly effective tool for uncovering and treating repressed memories and emotions, and freeing the mind from the effect of past traumas.


RELATIONSHIP ISSUES

Relationships take hard work to maintain and often life challenges even the strongest of ties.  It is hard to look objectively at what is happening and why. Having a professional counsellor to listen and understand will help you look at things in a more impartial way; help you take control of situations and interactions and make healthier, more rational and less emotive choices.


DEPRESSION

Depression is sadly an all-too common issue for so many people.  It casts a seemingly unbearable shadow over our lives and makes us believe there is no way out.  Using a combination of integrative counselling techniques, your counsellor will help you re-organise your thoughts, re-frame your negative thinking and cope with overwhelming emotions.


LOW SELF-CONFIDENCE & LOW SELF-ESTEEM

Lacking in self-confidence or having a negative self-image can hold you back in all walks of life.  Messages given to us from the day we were born are all stored up in our subconscious and set us on the life path we feel we deserve. Realising what path we are on and getting rid of negative labels gives us the self-belief, the strength and the power to change.


WEIGHT LOSS AND EATING DISORDERS

Food and what we eat can often be used as a form of self-harm or self-defeating behaviour.  Our weight and what we eat is an all-consuming concern for many people.  Sometimes we use it as a means of controlling our lives; other times we feel it actually controls us.  Hypnotherapy can help find the reasons behind our thoughts and behaviour and using a combination of hypnotherapy and integrative counselling, help you normalise and control it.


OBSESSIONS & COMPULSIONS

Being obsessed about something is often a manifestation of something lacking in other areas of life.  It can act as a distraction to prevent you from having to acknowledge something that may be painful.  Through a combination of counselling and hypnotherapy, you will gain the strength to address whatever issues that may be so your life can be more healthy and balanced. 


FEARS, PHOBIAS AND PANIC ATTACKS

Being afraid to go somewhere or do something from a deep-seated fear can ruin your life.  Hypnotherapy is a powerful and effective tool to help rewire the mind - getting rid of negative thoughts and building in powerful coping mechanisms. If needed, deeper work can be done to uncover where the fear comes from and desensitize the mind to it’s effects.


QUIT SMOKING AND EMOTIONAL ADDICTIONS

We often tell ourselves not to do something, even while we find ourselves actually doing it.  On a conscious level, we know it is bad for us and want to stop, yet we seem powerless to do so.  Hypnotherapy can help get rid of the positive messages your subconscious has about self-defeating habits and plant new ones, so you feel differently towards them and actually lose the desire to do them again*.  (*For drug and alcohol addictions, you should first consult your GP)


SELF-HARM AND OTHER SELF-DEFEATING BEHAVIOURS

Hurting or damaging ourselves is often an outward expression of the pain and confusion that is going on inside of us.  Physical pain or discomfort are more understandable to us than the psychological – and so easier to control and deal with.  Using a combination of hypnotherapy and counselling, your therapist will help you discover and understand what is going on at the deepest level and find healthier ways of dealing with it.
