I provide a modern approach to working with Emotional and Psychological issues using pluralistic and psychodynamic counselling and hypnotherapy to manage attitudes and behaviours, to include emotional trauma and depression, anxiety, stress, relieve pain, and facilitate personal motivational change.
In life each one of us acts in any situation based on who we think we are in that setting, the values and beliefs we hold around that identity, and the skills we possess. Our emotional response and reaction to the situation can define us or undermine us; our emotions being ‘triggered’ in micro-seconds by the situation. In understanding each person is particularly unique I can help you create a powerful, positive mindsight, help you understand your identity, capabilities, and your belief in yourself to effect change. I offer an internet based, and a personal face to face service, depending on your requirements location.
Hypnotherapy is a complimentary therapy. Its use is well established and documented in both psychology and medicine particularly for the relief of chronic pain and suffering. In more general situations in life hypnotherapy can provide the ability to identify the causes for negative self-beliefs, emotions, and behaviours and facilitate change. It enables people to review their coping strategies, enhance self-worth and self-confidence to help make new positive life choices. It can enable increased and more concentrated focus on life aims, aspirations, goal and motivational issues.
Pluralistic counselling and psychotherapy is a client centred talking therapy. The process adapts both psychology and humanistic principles in counselling techniques so they can be applied to the real life problems of each person. In the specific context of an understanding of each person in their particular social and emotional environment.
Both strategies can individually or together help relieve stress, anxiety, pain and emotional distress, and facilitate personal motivation and goal achievement, improve self-concept, creativity, and belief change.

Each person is particularly unique. Everyone has a way of looking at the world, its events, and their place in it that is personal to them. Consequently, there is no one size fits all in therapeutic approaches because of the unique perspective each person has on their view of the world and their particular place in it and of events and problems that arise. Through hypnotherapy and counselling, the person can be helped to understand that it is not the things that happen to us that define us it is what we decide those things mean to us that are crucial.
The reality each person creates is precious and fragile and needs nurturing. Hypnotherapy and counselling can help in balancing an individual’s well being and adjustment as necessary. Utilising relaxation and mindful techniques as part of the therapy can be beneficial overall as an aid to a healthy lifestyle. As such it can become important in aiding and building a resilience measure that can be applied in certain circumstances for health, well-being and personal growth. Such as in pain control, anxiety management, trauma management, phobias, stabilise identity and beliefs in achieving life goals and ambitions, all of which may mitigate the change in behaviour, health and well-being of an individual’s physical and mental state; and aid and stimulate personal growth and implementation of lifestyle changes to achieve personal and professional goals.
