Message to clients

I help adults seeking support with anxiety, depression, stress management, improving confidence and self- esteem, regulating emotions, and overcoming procrastination. If you suffer from phobias, I am trained in a technique in which I do not even need to know the details of what happened to you. The approach uses guided imagery and I normally expect to see improvement in symptoms after one session. I use hypnotherapy and can provide you with a recording that I will encourage you to listen to daily based on the belief that the mind learns by repetition. Depression and anxiety can make you feel hopeless. It drains the pleasure from things you used to enjoy, makes you see everything through gray-tinted glasses and eradicates hope and energy. In short, depression and anxiety are a parasites that feed off your life. But when you know how depression and anxiety works; what it needs to sustain it, then you start to gain power over it and hope starts to sprout again. But there is hope, and I think I can help. We will work together to: *reduce the amount of worrying and introspection you are doing *resolve any practical problems that are causing you stress *work on any relationship difficulties you may be having *help you balance your thinking so you are not plagued by *negative thoughts as you feel better.
