“Be present as the watcher of your mind – of your thoughts and emotions as well as your reactions in various situations. Be at least as interested in your reactions as in the situation or person that causes you to react.”

- Aches / Pains?
- Coping vs Thriving
- “What I should do” vs “What I want to do”
- How easy is it to say no?
- What do I get angry about?
- What do I not want to show others, myself?
- What am I embarrassed about?
- What would I never say to my loved ones?

My Therapy Toolbox
Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as Tapping (EFT):
Energy psychology is a glorious synergy of ancient eastern traditions with modern western behavioural research. By tapping on a sequence of acupressure points you can interrupt the emotional charge of specific negative memories while they are being accessed. It produces an extended moment of psychological healing at an unconscious level which can create a snowball of positive physical and conscious effects.
Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP)
The techniques of NLP that I find powerful are modelling, language, reframing, and the purposeful employment of all the modalities available to a person, whether it be via sight, sound, smell, taste or physical movement and sensation.
The pin-up boy of NLP, Tony Robbins, said you need to be hungry for change if you want change to occur. How hungry for change are you?
I often use hypnotherapy to enable the client in experiencing a more relaxed state and they can use the techniques away from the session. I like to weave hypnotherapy through other elements of the sessions too, and it facilitates faster learning than purely conscious conversation. I am always happy to share these subtleties with my clients.
If you want change, if you want to feel better, do better; even if you don’t know what you want to feel better about or how to do what better, we can explore that. My role is to facilitate your curiosity within a safe and conducive environment. Some ways that work well are simply reflection, getting specific, and becoming in tune with your physical reaction to your thoughts, and vice versa.
