The initial session(s) consist of the conversational stuff, information gathering.  I predominantly use NLP tools for this.  We look at past, present and future.  Through conversation, we have the potential to reframe your personal history, by bringing unconscious to conscious awareness, new insight help to dissipate old behaviours.  We uninstall old thoughts, feelings and beliefs that no longer serve you. Uncover unconscious payoffs.  Install and strengthen new thoughts, feelings and beliefs at an unconscious level.  We embed strategies that you can use moving forward to generate new behaviours which achieve your desired outcomes.

What some of my clients say about online hypnotherapy sessions

"There’s very little difference.   I started with face to face, then with the pandemic we moved to online.  It was more convenient for sure.”

“It’s made it more accessible for me.  Especially in lock down when I was so desperate for some help with pain management after an operatio.  With my limited mobility it was a god send.”

“I was unable to get to my face-to- face appointment, so we rescheduled for zoom, which was brilliant.” 

“As a busy mum with only one day off in the week, it’s been great because I’ve been able to sit in on the session. Then get back on with my day with minimal interruption which is fab. ” 

“I suffer with social anxiety and have mobility issues, so online was a perfect match for me.”
