Firstly, anxiety is very common so you are not alone. It is also NOT something you are expected to live with. Anxiety is a signal like a smoke alarm going off to get your attention! We wouldn’t quieten an alarm before discovering why it’s sounding would we? We can use your anxiety to heal it’s root cause at an unconscious level.
Approaching your anxiety from two directions, both cause and symptom, enables you to really triumph over it. You will learn new ways to ‘be’ and have much greater control over your emotions in those previously triggering environments.
Cognitive methods and talking therapies have a lower success rate with anxiety because quite simply, I believe that they focus consciousness to try and control what your powerful unconscious mind is running. Working with your unconscious mind is directly working with the part of you running the problem. Makes more sense doesn’t it? Your unconscious mind loves you, it also wants to run you efficiently and at an optimal level. It’s learnt how to do this response for you, quite probably as a protective mechanism that is not disproportionate and will learn another, different response if given the opportunity to learn. Hypnosis and other techniques working with the unconscious, allows it to do just that. Learn.
If you could have talked or thought your way out of this for good you would have by now wouldn’t you? Which is why using hypnosis to talk directly to the part of you running these automatic reactions works so brilliantly.

Hypnosis is safe and very normal. You often go in and out of mini trances throughout the day, such as driving or watching a movie or being absorbed in a book in fact, any time you are running on an auto-pilot mode doing anything. Any time you are focussed and your attention is absorbed – that’s a trance. Your eyes are open. It’s a state of focus. People often mistakenly think sleep is hypnosis or being ‘out’ like under anaesthetic. This is not the case at all. Hypnosis is a learning state and we want your unconscious mind to learn amazing new and empowering programs for you instead of anxiety-inducing ones.
I am a ‘Master Practitioner of NLP’ as well as being a hypnotherapist, I am also trained in a neuroscience-based method called Havening Technique. These combine to amplify the effectiveness of our session work together. I have been highly trained communication skills which I use during hypnosis to further enhance the results.
