Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to look through my website. If I had to use one word to describe my approach to counselling, it would have to be - practical.

I always listen intently and will keep your presenting needs front of mind. I use a combination of talk therapy and hypnosis to help you move forward with the intention of becoming unstuck.

When people hear or mention hypnosis in conversation, it can bring about varied initial impressions or reactions. Hypnosis, in itself, is simply a natural state of mind we slip in-and-out of unknowingly throughout our day. That said, while in a trance-like state you always remain in control and will not say or do anything you would not normally do. Hypnosis can be used as a way to access the unconscious mind or the “feeling mind”. It is a helpful tool or platform that can be used to apply proven psychotherapeutic methods. I use this approach to help you live a more fulfilling and meaningful life. 

 

By definition, hypnotherapy is an alternative healing method that is used to self-create positive subconscious change in a person. It helps to form new responses, thoughts, attitudes, behaviours or feelings towards a perceived challenge.

Hypnotherapy is:

  • Safe

  • Scientific|Evidence Based

  • Can Aid In Creating Positive Change

 

It is not always necessary to use hypnosis in counselling, but it can come in handy for certain situations. If needed, it can help deepen or help access parts of your mind that you are not consciously aware of. The therapeutic modalities I principally use in my practice are:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

  • Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH)

  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

  • Ericksonian Hypnosis

  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about my approach and what it can do for you, please send me an e-mail and I would be happy to assist.
