eye movement desensitisation + reprocessing (EMDR)

Traumatic or stressful memories are often stored in a different place in the mind to other less distressing memories. These isolated memories become “locked” and continue to affect us negatively because they haven’t been properly ‘processed’ due to the stress at the time they occurred. During EMDR we release and let them go, so that they no longer limit us and we can move forward positively. EMDR (eye movement desensitisation + reprocessing) was initially developed to treat post-traumatic stress but is also very effective for treating deeper-seated anxiety, fears, trauma and stress.

hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a powerful and empowering therapeutic tool, which makes use of and develops the positive power of the mind and belief. It is the conscious use of “the placebo response” – our natural ability to heal and create positive change through belief and expectation. It is safe, effective and wonderfully relaxing.

Some of the conditions treated by Hypnotherapy are; stress, anxiety and panic attacks, phobias, smoking cessation, weight loss, performance improvement, painless childbirth.

neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)

NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) explores how we interpret our world, how we think and feel, the power of our communication both verbal and non-verbal and how we create our patterns for living and our habits and ultimately the results we get. Using these powerful and highly effective techniques in a conversational coaching session, you can understand why you experience life the way you do and you can, therefore, change the things that aren’t working for you.

Some areas where these techniques are useful are:

  • Creating a compelling vision for your future.
  • Setting goals and an action plan for achieving your goals.
  • Overcoming obstacles which are holding you back.
  • Buildling confidence and self belief.
  • Changing negative habits and behaviours.
  • Creating and maintaining better relationships with others.

Another reading done after the regression helps shed light on what you experienced in your journey. This unique combination of astrology and regression can help overcome blocks, phobias and health issues as well as enable you to better understand all relationships.

solution oriented therapy

It is likely that you know a lot about your problem, but less about what might help you figure it out. The solution-orientated approach has ways of melting these problems away and creating a sense of spaciousness so that you feel free to take your next step forward. It is useful for all sorts of issues including those that are connected to: how you feel, who you are in a relationship with (friends/family/partner) and how you spend your time (working/having a family/pursuing a passion).

The focus of the solution-orientated approach is probably most different to a psychoanalytic or psychodynamic therapy as SOT doesn’t focus on the therapist-client relationship but instead focuses on how you can be resourced to make the movements in your life that you really wish for. Solution-oriented therapy is a flexible enough process to both meet an immediate short-term need (one appointment) or to work with an issue that you have had for a bit longer (several appointments).

stop smoking hypnotherapy

Hypnosis has been proven to out-perform all other methods to quit smoking, helping you to feel great and look great.

Using relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques, clients learn how to cope with situations where they would previously have used smoking to deal with feelings of anxiety and stress, especially in situations they associate with this habit.

trauma + tension release exercise (TRE)

TRE (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) is a revolutionary self-administered technique for stress reduction and trauma recovery. These simple and easy to learn exercises can assist the body in releasing chronic muscular tensions and deeply held traumas thus restoring a sense of inner peace and calm. It is a self help method for anyone who is looking for a way to self-regulate their tension levels and everyday stress. In the session, the practitioner will guide you through the exercises and monitor your response. Exercises are designed to access deep tensions and release them by induction of neurogenic tremors.

TRE is not designed to be a stand alone treatment but can greatly enhance any traditional therapeutic approach as it supports healing at the deepest level of the body, where traumatic responses originate.
