We all need a boost of confidence at times and I have many techniques and methods to use in order to help you improve yours. Whether you lack confidence in one area of your life, need a boost to help you deliver a speech or public performance or if you generally have never felt confident then I can help you find and utilise this from within your self.
We are all born confident â itâs what life throws at us and how we cope with it that often leads to a lack of confidence in the first place.
I specialise in the art of confidence â this is somewhat due to the fact that it was a lack of confidence in myself that drew me to hypnotherapy as a client, before I embarked on learning the art for myself.
I was a singer in a band, I always loved to sing but lacked confidence, it took until I was 28 years old before I even managed to get onto a stage. Despite my nerves I battled on until I reached the point of feeling I would never overcome the nerves. I got to the point of conquer it or quit â I knew I didnât want to quit so hypnotherapy was my last resort. I had 3 sessions and it changed my life as a performer.
I noticed the difference from the first session and so did everyone else (although no-one knew I was having hypnotherapy!) With each session my confidence improved and grew, and it continued to grow long after the hypnotherapy sessions had come to an end.
Stress & Anxiety
Stress and Anxiety seems to be harder and harder for us to avoid in todayâs fast paced and often high pressured society. It can have a negative impact on our physical and emotional lives, making it very difficult for us to function the way we would like. Stress and anxiety will affect all of us at some point in our lives and is one of the most commonly presented problems I deal with.
For the majority of clients improvement is normally rapid and can take place from the first session. You will also be taught techniques that you will be able to take away with you to use.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a condition affecting as many as 1 in 4 of the population. There is no known medical cure and the symptoms can be debilitating affecting many areas of a personâs life.
Scientific research carried out over the past 20 years has shown that hypnotherapy is a highly effective and inexpensive treatment for dealing with the symptoms of IBS, routinely producing positive results in over 80% of sufferers who use it as a treatment it is becoming widely recognised as the most effective treatment for sufferers of this condition. Most people do not need more than between 6 and 8 sessions to become and remain symptom free.
A medical diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome needs to have been made by a Doctor or other Medical Professional before therapy goes ahead. Many of the symptoms produced by IBS can also be the symptoms of other more serious conditions, therefore it is important that these diseases have been ruled out before hypnotherapy treatment begins.
Many people do not realise that hypnotherapy can be available on the NHS with a Doctors referral. Although I am not an NHS provider I do have an Independent NHS Provider Number which enables me to take referrals from NHS Doctors and Consultants.
Depression can affect children and adults alike. Females are twice as likely to be affected by depression than males. Many people will suffer depression at some time during their lives. There are many causes of depression and these include, bereavement, loss of a job, break up of the family, separation or divorce and insecurities.
It can be very difficult for a person to move forward and pull themselves out of the depressive cycle and it can affect all areas of a persons life, including personal relationships, family life, working life, social life, and sex drive. It can also affect the ability to think straight and make decisions, make good judgements and it can also affect the memory.
Depression has many symptoms including: feeling sadness, loss of appetite, tiredness, anger, guilt, frustration, overeating, difficulty in sleeping, despair, grief, inability to concentrate, lack of energy and enthusiasm for life.
Several therapeutic methods can help to overcome depression including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy, Counselling, Interpersonal Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy.
Therapy can help you to overcome depression and move forward in your life to a happier brighter future. Please book a free no obligation consultation to discuss things further and find out more about how therapy may help you.
