The approach resolves the core issue and works at a 'deep level', to re imprint the experience to create a new belief and behaviour enabling you to live a life 'free of the burden' of the behaviour or symptom which is limiting your life.

Additional Rate Information

I work with individuals, couples face to face and via skype. I am accredited and have trained in a wide range of approaches so I integrate a range of psychotherapeutic interventions according to your desired outcome. At our first meeting of 1.5 hours we discuss what you want to achieve, how you prefer to work, potential number, timing and length of sessions, so the therapy you require is tailored for your needs. Fees vary according to the length of sessions and the kind of therapeutic approach. e.g. a specific issue e.g. phobias, stop smoking, state of mind for performance, hypnotherapy is very focused and can be between 4 and 6 sessions of 1.5 hours. If you prefer longer term counselling, to resolve relationship, deeper or traumatic issues this is often on - going for 1 hour on a weekly basis. If you have suffer from anxiety or PTSD then we may use a process called EMDR, which is very effective in helping to resolve such experiences. For IBS/ eating disorders/weight control is the presenting issue we may use a range of interventions including hypno - psychotherapy and NLP. I also work with a nutritionist to support the programme.
