I specialise in supporting women experiencing the peri menopause, menopause and post menopause with a unique bespoke blend of cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy, meditation and mindfulness. I am passionate about helping women to positively change the way in which they feel and think so that they can address obstacles and challenges in life and ultimately thrive.
The menopause transition is a complex and challenging journey for most women and it often comes at a time in life when we are juggling many other issues in such as work, caring for children or elderly parents and relatives.The hormonal fluctuations during this time of transition can contribute to many symptoms such as anxiety, mood swings, hot flushes, poor sleep, brain fog, loss of confidence, and weight gain,
However with gentle support and understanding I am able to allow you the space to experience deep relaxation, self-discovery, self-compassion and self-acceptance.
What is Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which is commonly known as (CBT) is a talking therapy which helps you to identify negative ways of thinking, behaving and feeling whilst at the same time replacing those negative patterns with more positive ones.
The focus is very much upon dealing with any problems in the present rather than spending a huge amount of time looking at the past. The National Institute for health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the NHS recommend CBT in the treatment of anxiety and depression.
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy draws on the way we can use our imagination to fully challenge feelings and thoughts replacing them with more positive suggestions. Within a treatment session you may experience a deep sense of relaxation. within hypnosis you will be able to use your imagination to visualise your goals whilst changing the way you think, feel and behave in order to achieve them.
I combine hypnotherapy, mindfulness and CBT techniques to help you to explore and become aware of what is going on in your life. I work towards enabling you to then develop more positive ways of thinking, behaving and feeling.
How long is a session?
The first time you come to see me, the session will last about 90 minutes.
Subsequent sessions will last one hour.
How many sessions will I need?
You may need only two or three, or you may need several sessions over a period of months. On average though, most people need 3-6 sessions. We want to make sure that change is permanent for you.
One of the most important aspects of this therapy is your commitment to the process.
