My passion is helping people have a better experience of life.
Throughout a career in nursing, and health education roles, my goal has always been and continues to be supporting people to make better choices for themselves by helping them explore new understandings and knowledge, to enable them to feel empowered and in control of their lives. I work from the understanding that our view of the world is shaped by our past experiences which form beliefs, and that we have the power to change this by gaining new awareness, and therefor restoring a sense of choice. Hypnotherapy simply helps to unlock that power.
My passion includes working with women, exploring the impact of parenting (birth trauma, postnatal depletion and parenting children of all ages) and transitional life stages (birth, change, grief) and how these impact women and their families. I also love helping women with body love/acceptance, and their connection to themselves.
The power of the subconscious mind. Where it all started.
I first discovered the power of subconscious mind work when I attended Calmbirth classes in preparation for the birth of our second child. During the months in preparation for our birth, as I listened to the relaxations daily, I was able to shift my mindset to be able to enter a birth free of fear and limitations. The subconscious mind work helped me release outdated programming (beliefs) which were no longer helpful. I went on to train as a Calmbirth Educator so I could help other women achieve empowered births and thoroughly enjoyed my time in that role.
My approach to individual therapy is holistic hypnotherapy incorporating psychotherapeutic and counselling elements.
Our work together is gentle, person-centred and collaborative; it can be carried out without having to dig into the details, or can include unpacking deeper layers, or sometimes, just a chance to talk things over in a safe space.
As an experienced group facilitator, loving the power of connection in group/circle work, I offer group workshops as well as individual therapy.
