Introduction I provide one-on-one private consultations in a safe, quiet and nurturing space.
I am a registered counsellor and qualified clinical hypnotherapist, with a background in healthcare with nursing in psychiatric and general units. I am also a practitioner of energetic healing/reiki.
My philosophy is to respect and work with your beliefs and culture.
My goal is to support you to be well equipped in your life, to access inner wisdom and be your potential.
I work in conjunction with and respect other health practitioners such as your GP, nutritionist, physiotherapist, osteopath, psychologist, psychiatrist.
My training is in Transpersonal Counselling which combines analytical psychology, humanistic psychology, Jungian psychology, Eastern spiritual practices and shamanic practice. Transpersonal looks beyond the personality and supports the spiritual or transcendent self. I value it's emphasis on creative expression such as drawing, story, ritual and offer these tools in my practice.
I have done shamanic studies and this love of earth and nature influences my life and work. I am qualified in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Ego State Therapy taught by Dr Gordon Emmerson.

EGO STATE THERAPY
What is Ego State Therapy and how can it help me?
Ego State Therapy is a powerful and brief therapy based on the premise that personality is made up of separate parts, rather than being a homogeneous whole. These parts (which everyone has) are called ego states. The therapist works directly with the state that can best benefit from change, rather than merely working with the intellectual, talkative state.
We are each made up of a number of different states; each has its own feeling of power, weakness, emotion, logic, or other personal traits. When we say, "Part of me wants to," we are talking about an ego state. When we say, "I feel at peace with myself on this issue," we are talking about our ego states agreeing, not having an internal struggle. Our various states help to make our lives rich, productive, and enjoyable. A state harboring pain can cause unrest and unwanted emotional reactions.
The Goals of Ego State Therapy are to:

What is Hypnotherapy and how does it work?
Tired of having an intention and not seeing it thru?
Hypnotherapy is a tool to help you do what you want to do.
To do what you intend.
Hypnotherapy is is a tool to help you manage your mind and body.
In the first part of the session we will talk about your issue and together create your unique suggestions to affect the change you want. I guide you to a mental state where you are open and receptive to these suggestions.
The brain has a critical factor, a mechanism to protect us from doing anything that could cause harm or go against our moral beliefs. While in hypnosis, you will reject anything that your conscious mind thinks is ridiculous or untrue.
Hypnosis is a highly focused state where the subconscious mind is in the foreground. All of our thoughts, memories and emotions are stored in the subconscious. Habits, hurts and conditioning formed from our life history are held here. During hypnosis the subconscious is in a receptive state, and new information (positive suggestions) are offered.
The positive suggestions are heard by your subconscious mind and become part of your thinking, in turn influencing future thoughts, feelings and behaviour. This makes it possible to break old habits and create new desirable habits.
How will it feel to be hypnotised?
You are in control while in hypnosis, with your mind being super alert, and your body comfortably relaxed. You are aware of your external surroundings, at the same time being acutely focused on your emotions and thoughts. It is a pleasant, deeply relaxing state. You can be either lying down or comfortably sitting. You are able to interact with me throughout the whole process.

How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions for hypnotherapy varies from person to person, many issues can be taken care of in 3 to 6 sessions.
What is Reiki & how does it work?
I am a practitioner of Radiance Technique, The Authentic Reiki. Radiance Technique from Japan is a vibrational energy science accessing universal energy. It is a precise technique for balancing the whole person in body, emotions, mind and spirit.
Reiki works on the chakras, also known as energy wheels of the body. The treatment follows a traditional pattern of hand positions, resting without pressure on or above the body, above the chakras.
The treatment refreshes and balances the energy of each chakra affecting the organs and emotions that relate to each. Reiki is pure energy, and brings about deep relaxation and healing.
