I practise a variety of therapeutic techniques from the worlds of Psychotherapy, NLP, CBT, Clinical Hypnotherapy and Coaching. I will select the appropriate therapy (or mix of therapies) to create a tailored treatment plan and work with you through the challenges, supporting you at every step of your journey.
Psychotherapy is a combined approach to therapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies. The view being that there is not one single therapy that can support a client but a tailored approach bringing together cognitive, behavioural & physiological systems within a person. The aim of integrative psychotherapy is to facilitate wholeness and a greater self-awareness. Your therapist is a facilitator who can help you explore your innate resources to find your own solutions and fulfil your personal potential.
Clinical Hypnosis gives us a way to work with the subconscious mind, where our past memories, deep emotions and belief systems are stored. It is a deeply relaxed, focused state where you’re open to helpful suggestions. Hypnotherapy is a way of using hypnosis to change habits, motivate yourself and regain control in areas of your life. It gently removes ‘mental blocks’, such as fears or negative thinking patterns, which are getting in the way of you overcoming a problem. The language we use and the messages we tell ourselves are often old, outdated limiting beliefs that no longer benefit us. Hypnosis is a powerful and effective model of change.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
NLP is a coaching technique which explores the relationships between the way we think, the way we communicate, and our behavioural and emotional patterns.
Neuro – How we choose to view and sense the world.
Linguistic – The internal dialogue and external language we use.
Programming – The behaviours we exhibit.
NLP was founded in 1976 by a linguistics Professor John Grinder and Dr Richard Bandler, who was a computer scientist.
More Therapeutic Techniques
Wellbeing Coaching is an approach to understanding all round wellbeing rather than just the physical health aspect. It explores the pillars of wellbeing that underpin our fundamental health, helps clients achieve their goals or understand areas that may need focus. Practical skills and a personalised coaching programme are developed for the individual client.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is based on the idea that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are all connected and that because of this you can become stuck in a cycle of negative thoughts and feelings. This approach can help you navigate challenges you face by examining the way you think and behave; making conscious, gradual changes.
This approach is focused on goals and on making changes for the future. It focuses on solutions rather than on the problem and is particularly helpful for short-term work with clients. Perhaps you have a specific goal in mind or a confidence issue you'd like to overcome.
Mindfulness is a practice which seeks to improve our awareness of ourselves and the world around us. It can be a useful tool in improving our wellbeing and works well alongside the other approaches I use. In an ever changing world learning to utilise our human ability to connect with the world around us, stay present more and be in the moment. Mindfulness is the perfect tool for behavioural change; from eating habits to anxiety and stress management.
