... to achieve lasting change - Online Sessions UK Wide

Make the changes you want to make, to live the life you want to live.   
I offer a tailored approach, suitable for your individual needs, in a relaxing environment, ensuring a friendly, comfortable and confidential experience. Based in Stirling. 

A blend of therapeutic approaches are utilised to enhance the hypnotic experience and results achievable, drawing on 
Life Coaching and Counselling techniques, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), Mindfulness Techniques and Cognitive Behavioural Psychology. 

We all have basic emotional needs required to optimise our wellbeing and performance, recognised within the following broad categories:
  • To feel safe, stability, nurtured and accepted.
  • To have some autonomy, to feel competent and to have a sense of identity.
  • To have the freedom to express our own needs and emotions.
  • To be able to act spontaneously and to play (have fun).
  • To live within realistic limits, which help to apply self-control.

Therapeutic support can help us to access the resources and strategies required to better identify and meet these needs.

I have now returned to offering In-Person face-to-face sessions. I will keep doing Zoom sessions permanently for clients for whom this is their preferred option. 
This is my new perspex screen and clinic arrangement to maintain  appropriate social distancing, with hand sanitiser and sanitising spray. I have also removed soft furnishings (cushions and blankets) and payment is requested in advance of session, by PayPal or bank transfer to reduce any risk. I wear a face mask, and remain behind the safety screen. Clients wear a face mask  (can be provided). 

Achieving a Healthy Work-Life Balance
Achieving a positive, healthy work-life balance effectively bridging personal, professional and family roles and responsibilities is central to individual wellbeing. With variability in work patterns becoming the norm, flexible working, home offices, online meetings, and conference calls have become common place. The distinction between personal and professional wellbeing and performance is dissolving.  As a Chartered Occupational Psychologist I recognise that the demands of work have an impact on our private lives, just as our health and personal wellbeing impact our performance at work.

Job roles are more flexible, careers are no longer linear, and learning is lifelong. Our roles overlap, we can be simultaneously employees, bosses, owners, parents, family members, volunteers, carers and senior citizens ever developing our life long capacities as: successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors, as our children and young people now learn in school as they prepare for their futures. 

Into every situation, relationship and circumstance we bring our own unique set of talents, beliefs, expectations, experiences, traumas, fears, motivators, perspectives, preferences, personality and purpose. In modern day life, workplace and personal wellbeing, health, development, potential, resilience, motivation and performance are mutually inclusive, and our development as individuals must reflect this to achieve the greatest positive impact.

*Individual responses to hypnotherapy will vary, and results cannot be guaranteed. Results will vary from person to person.

What Happens during Hypnosis? 
Stirling Clinic: Make yourself comfortable, close your eyes and recharge with some valuable hypnotherapy time just for you at  the Stirling ClinicUsing hypnosis, a deep level of relaxation can be achieved in which our mind is more open to receiving positive suggestions, providing effective ways to help us achieve our desired outcomes, and eliminate  unhelpful beliefs that hold us back.

Hypnotherapy seeks the root cause of problems, empowering internal resources to resolve the symptoms and achieve lasting change.FREE Consultation  A free 20 minute telephone consultation is available  to clarify the suitability of hypnotherapy to meet your therapy goals. Should you decide to proceed, this can be followed by your first hypnotherapy session at that time or a later date.
Depending upon the issue, some clients achieve their desired outcome in 1-4 sessions, while some issues may require more, typically 5-10 sessions. Many clients find it beneficial to maintain results by returning every 4 weeks or so. I work in partnership with clients to ensure sessions are tailored to the specific needs of each individual. 
**It would not be realistic for me to make guarantees with  hypnotherapy. Results vary from individual to individual. Each client is unique and responds accordingly and will achieve the outcome in their own way with collaboration from me. Though I can offer an evidence base for the efficacy of  interventions used in this field, I cannot guarantee a client of success or of achieving absolutely what they wish, though I aim to do so best I can.
