Self Esteem / Self Worth


Low self-esteem affects so many people. In fact lots of other presenting symptoms like addictions stem from low self-esteem. Feelings of low self-worth stop people from living their best lives, the life they deserve to live. It keeps people stuck in situations that are destructive be that addictions, relationships, jobs or other situations that are not healthy and further entrench low self-worth. I truly believe we all deserve happiness. I believe this to be a selfless (not selfish!) act to work on yourself and to recognise the importance of self-acceptance. When you are happy with yourself this not only brings happiness to your own life but it radiates out of you and affects every single person you come into contact with in a positive way, truly a selfless act right?! Feelings of low self-worth can usually be found in the false beliefs we hold about ourselves. Beliefs that have often been taken on during childhood when we are too young to truly understand our experiences. I will help you to first find the beliefs that are holding you back, reframe these beliefs and experiences, see through the illusion, find forgiveness (this doesn’t mean condoning hurtful acts but true forgiveness brings powerful healing on in itself) and let go of the emotional baggage you may have been dragging around with you. I will help you open up to the power of your mind and see how simple it is to re-wire your thought patterns and update your disempowering beliefs to empowering beliefs that will propel you to the life you desire to live. Did you know that when we think a negative thought which creates negative feelings, that these feelings then release a flurry of neuropeptides which surge through the body and connect with peptide receptors which are found in the cells, our cells have thousands of these peptide receptors and as they connect it changes the structure of the cells as a whole. So when our cells divide to create new cells (happens approx every 2 months) if the cell has been more exposed to negative peptides compared to positive ones it will create a new cell that matches with those more negative peptides. So basically if the cells are communicating more often than not with negative feelings produced by negative thoughts then the new cells will be charged with more negative peptides. Likewise the cell will also have less receptors for peptides that it’s mother/sister cell was not exposed to as often. So if you are bombarding your cells with peptides from negative thoughts you are literally programming your cells to receive more of the same negative peptides in the future and lessening the number of positive peptides on the cells, making you more naturally inclined towards negativity. You are programming yourself for more negativity. This is why it can be so difficult consciously to change these patterns as 95% of our waking behaviours are driven by the subconscious mind. This is why hypnosis is one of the most effective tools to create health self esteem / self worth. Typically clients need 3 sessions, see fees page for further details on cost and what is included.




Stop Smoking


85% OF PEOPLE QUIT WITH ONE SESSION! BRITISH MEDICAL ASSOCIATION FOUND HYPNOTHERAPY TO BE THE MOST SUCCESSFUL TOOL TO QUIT SMOKING! Having once been a heavy smoker for over 15 years and failing time after time to kick the habit, I finally tried hypnotherapy and with just one session have now been a non-smoker for over 12 years. Smoking is something that everyone had to learn to like. Remember your first cigarette? Nobody enjoyed their first cigarette. The body’s natural defences made smoking such a concoction of poisonous chemicals an extremely unpleasant experience. Eventually though as we all pushed through this (I thought I was cool at 12, what can I say?!) the subconscious mind learned (falsely) to accept this poison and to in fact think (crave) it needs this poison. Through hypnosis I can help you unlearn and break this dangerous, expensive habit in one session. Only 1 session is required to quite smoking, see fees for further details on what is included in the fee of £150




Anxiety & Panic Attacks


Anxiety affects so many people, causing panic, nervousness, excessive worrying and fear (false experiences appearing real) and often manifests in the body as physical symptoms. Whilst it’s natural to worry from time to time, excessive worry can and does have debilitating effects on people’s lives. When you suffer from anxiety it is your mind and body's way of sending you a message that something in your life needs to change. It's a warning signal and if left unchecked can progress into serious health issues, but even if you aren't experience serious health issues, living with anxiety is miserable and unnecessary. Did you know that when we think a negative thought which creates negative feelings, that these feelings then release a flurry of neuropeptides which surge through the body and connect with peptide receptors which are found in the cells, our cells have thousands of these peptide receptors and as they connect it changes the structure of the cells as a whole. So when our cells divide to create new cells (happens approx every 2 months) if the cell has been more exposed to negative peptides compared to positive ones it will create a new cell that matches with those more negative peptides. So basically if the cells are communicating more often than not with negative feelings produced by negative thoughts then the new cells will be charged with more negative peptides. Likewise the cell will also have less receptors for peptides that it’s mother/sister cell was not exposed to as often. So if you are bombarding your cells with peptides from negative thoughts you are literally programming your cells to receive more of the same negative peptides in the future and lessening the number of positive peptides on the cells, making you more naturally inclined towards negativity. You are programming yourself for more negativity. This is why it can be so difficult consciously to change these patterns as 95% of our waking behaviours are driven by the subconscious mind. This is why hypnosis is one of the most effective tools to heal anxiety without medication. Typically clients need 3 sessions, see fees page for further details on cost and what is included.




Imposter Syndrome


Clare Josa an international speaker and researcher in this area defines imposter syndrome as "Imposter syndrome happens when there is a mismatch between who you see yourself as currently being, and who you think you need to be to achieve or create a goal, despite the evidence that you're more than capable" It's those thoughts and feelings that you will be found out as being a fraud, not being good enough, not deserving to be where you are despite the fact that all the external evidence shows you are good enough, like perhaps being promoted or being praised at work. This is because it's deeper than self doubt, it's about who you believe yourself to be at the core (identity) and no matter what other people tell you, or the evidence to the contrary internally you believe something different. This is very common in most work environments. In fact one study showed that 2/3 of workforces suffer or have suffered from this. I hope knowing this fact alone will ease the burden a little in that you are far from alone as nearly all of us at some point suffer in silence from this. Many people (me included at one point) think that these thoughts and feelings will lessen as they learn more and progress but actually they tend to get louder. Major life events and growth periods like promotions and becoming a parent can trigger these feelings even more. Imposter syndrome stops you from fulfilling your full potential as you hold back often procrastinating, not completing projects, or not putting forward ideas at work because you are deep down afraid of failure and being found out. You spend quite a lot of your working day under added stress putting your body into fight or flight which redirects blood flow from the part of the brain that regulates concentration, focus, decision making, into your body priming it ready to run. This means that not only does your physical health suffer but you cannot perform at your best in the situations you are worried about, it's like a double whammy! Typically clients need 2-3 sessions, see fees page for further details on cost and what is included.




Addictions


Starting out usually as a pleasurable activity, or a way to avoid emotional pain, however soon the once helpful distraction becomes an addiction. Addiction can quickly start negatively affecting your day to day life, perhaps at work, within your relationships and with your health. Addictions often come about as a symptom of repressed emotions or stress. Therefore, these underlying root causes are explored and dealt with during hypnosis as well as using direct suggestions to support and re-programme the mind to make healthier choices. Common addictions including, drinking, gambling, drugs, shopping, and sex. Typically clients need 2-3 sessions, see fees page for further details on cost and what is included.




Depression


Depression can make life feel impossible and people suffering can feel very isolated even when surrounded by a good network of friends and family. There is a miss conception that depression is simply a product of low serotonin levels and that by taking anti-depressants this will solve the problem. Whilsts its true these pills can have a role to play and give some much needed relief by boosting serotonin levels which is one of the brains feel good chemicals, many patients still continue to suffer from depression and end up in a cycle of increased doses and continued bouts of depression. In a world where the use of pills is increasing without depression reducing we have to ask the question why? This is because the underlying causes of depression are not explored and dealt with. Hypnotherapy is a brilliant therapy to quickly and easily get to the root of the depression so that it can be healed, released and transformed. Typically clients need 3-4 sessions, see fees page for further details on cost and what is included.
