THE POWER OF States OF RELAXATION
Hypnosis is a state of gentle relaxation. In the peaceful state of awareness unresolved feelings and experiences from the past can be acknowledged and transformed.
This approach can help clients overcome phobias, ease many physical symptoms, manage stress & anxiety, quit smoking, build confidence and control weight.
In a uniquely crafted inner journey this therapy can also be used to heal the Inner Child and harness your inner wisdom and creative imagination.
Hypnotherapy can speed up the progress of therapy by reaching those parts of us that are most resistant to change. When focusing on specific issues that clients find particularly difficult to resolve Hypnotherapy can complement and enhance other therapeutic approaches.

THE POWER OF good COMMUNICATIOn
Exploring our language and style of communication is a powerful and effective way to deepen our understanding of ourselves and our relationships with others.
A lot of the stress, conflict and confusion in our lives can be the result of the way we communicate with others. Changing the way we communicate is a very effective way of resolving these issues.
Communicating our feelings and needs more effectively is more likely to receive a positive response.
Emotional coaching sessions draw on Counselling, Compassionate Communication methods and sometimes Hypnotherapy to help to transform stress and conflict into opportunities for greater understanding, growth and satisfaction.
