Suzanne Hope Dip CP, Dip Hyp, GHR
2 Thomas Walls Close
You may be looking for some quick, short term help to deal with specific issues, symptoms or feelings; or you may be looking for a bit more help to deal with deeper issues. I aim to help you effectively AND give you techniques you can use for yourself immediately. I use integrative therapeutic approaches to support and help you resolve issues such as:
Low Self Esteem
Also as a Hypnotherapist I can also offer help with the above and also weight loss, smoking and other unwanted habits.
I also offer a FREE 30 minute consultation.
Training, qualifications & experience
In 1996 I began working in Ipswich, in adult mental health; assisting people to live independently in the community.
During the next thirteen years, as well as working one to one in Ipswich, Felixstowe and the rural areas of north Suffolk, I also managed an adult mental health project in Felixstowe. I then spent three years working in a Pupil Referral Unit with teenagers with mental health issues, during which time I continued my study and qualified as a Hypnotherapist and Counsellor, and began to build my practice. I have also worked as a corporate parent with adolescences in a residential setting, who had emotional and behavioural issues, and challenging behaviour.
I have an excellent understanding of mental health issues, not only from my career but from my own personal experience. I was diagnosed with depression in 1998, and was significantly affected by anxiety and panic attacks. This gave me a great insight into how this type of illness can seriously affect your life, and with the aid of Counselling and Hypnotherapy and a great deal of determination I was able to move forward.
The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) I am bound by their ethical framework for good practice in Counselling, Psychotherapy, and Hypnotherapy, and subject to the professional conduct procedure for the time being in force.
I have a background of working in adult mental health with both adults and children. I also have 6 years experience of working with adolescents both within an educational setting and within a local authority children's home. More recently I have been working with Suffolk MIND.
