Person - Centred

Guidance and Inspiration

Supportive and empathetic, I use a person-centred approach to counselling - simply because this is the best approach to empower the client.

Once a client has clarity and rediscovers that they know themselves better than anyone, then the changes can happy.

My techniques include unconditional positive regard and ensure two things:

You are in control

You always have a choice.

Make the Change

Hypnotherapy is a gentle talking therapy. It focuses a clients subconscious mind to help bring about positive change - change to thoughts, feelings, behaviours and emotions - but always changes that clients want to make. 

You will find yourself wonderfully relaxed after these sessions. 

Hypnotherapy is often a short course of treatment, with only a few sessions needed in most instances to address the particular issue.
