Helps you become at ease with yourself and others. Firstly, a trust needs to be established between therapist and client this helps both parties to be truly honest with each other. Counselling offers the space to feel truly validated in your thoughts, behaviour and emotions. Counselling works in a process that is very different for each individual person, and this helps you feel unique. After the initial first session the process continues where you learn a wider perspective of self. At times we become conditioned in what is, expected of us, to respond in certain ways to certain situations. Counselling helps to break down the conditions that no longer serve us well. During the process of counselling you are constantly learning and developing new ways of expressing, coping and living a fuller life. The self becomes fully present in the here and now and you feel you can truly respect yourself and others. This gives you good sense of self and autonomy and value.

Hypnotherapy is a relaxed state of inner focused attention. Where our minds become more concentrated and focused, we are able to utilise our minds more effectively. Throughout hypnosis the body goes into a deep relaxation, where the mind becomes, more alert and susceptible to positive suggestions.
Unhealthy memories and beliefs of events are stored in the mind, the relaxed mind opens to the previous events, during hypnotherapy. The mind becomes ready for change, enabling a release of the negativity, often with catharsis, but not always. Hypnotherapy enables change of the old memories, with the help of, positive suggestions that are formed from the creative self.
Hypnotherapy targets the unhealthy automatic memories and challenges old formed limiting beliefs (that may have formed in early childhood or just repeated actions of unhealthy behaviour in adulthood) and creates more healthy beliefs. An example can be, ‘I’m not good enough,’ changing the belief to ‘I am good enough.’
Hypnotherapy works towards positive changes that have been agreed upon initial consultation.
