Who Can I Help?

I work with imaginative, open-minded people who would like to make a change in one or more areas of their lives. My role is to help you find the fastest route to a permanent solution to your unique issue or goal.

Treating You as an Individual

Unlike some approaches where people with the same goal (such as weight loss) are offered the same treatment, cognitive hypnotherapy treats each person as an individual. For example, in one week I might see three clients who want to overcome anxiety, and each might require a completely different approach to reach their unique “solution”.

What’s Your Solution?

“Suppose that tonight while you are asleep a miracle occurs, and the miracle is that what prompted you to come and see me is solved. When you wake up tomorrow morning, what will have changed in your life? What will be different? How will you know that the miracle has occurred?”

Questions like this help make sure I understand exactly what you want out of our time together. The answer to the miracle question gives us both your unique “solution”. Of course, your answer the miracle question might change over time, and people often find that what they get out of our sessions is even better than their original answer to the “miracle question”. This is how our minds work – they tend to generalise – which is why sometimes problems can seem to spiral out of control, but, on a more positive note, when we experience even a small improvement in our issue, we start to notice more and more positive changes across all areas of our lives. Cognitive hypnotherapy can help bring about these improvements.

For example, I once saw a woman who wanted to overcome her nerves about public-speaking. She was a non-medically trained NHS employee who had been asked to give a talk to a hundred or so doctors. The thought terrified her. She told me a few months later she said that not only had the talk gone brilliantly, but that she had become much more confident in her personal life, as well as at work.
