Julie Ilett FDSc DCH DHP Supervisor Reg MBACP GQHP
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
I am trained in various models of counselling so am able to tailor my sessions to suit your needs. Amongst other things I work with the following -
Generalised anxiety disorder
Low self esteem
Sexual and physical abuse
And many other issues that you may be struggling with.
There are so many pressures and stresses to deal with at times so being able to unpick them in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where you will be listened to emphatically is essential.
I can help you to affect change or gain acceptance and achieve peace in your life.
I use a combination of Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies and can tailor the session for your individual needs. I can assist you to make positive changes. You will be supported to find new insights and meanings to past and present issues.
I offer both long term counselling and short term therapy.
I feel the therapeutic relationship is key to success so offer a reduced rate no obligation initial consultation so you can decide if I am the right therapist for you.
People can often hold unconscious issues and negative beliefs about themselves, through past negative conditioning. These beliefs can sometimes be hard to shift on a conscious level. Under hypnosis the analytical left side of the brain is switched off whilst the non analytical right side is brought to the forefront, where positive suggestions can be installed. These new ideas filter back to the conscious mind affecting changes required.
Along with past negative conditions, we may also have to endure the devastating blows life can deal us. This can often lead to stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, fears, phobias, low self esteem, insomnia, relationship issues, sexual problems and many medical conditions, including chronic pain and fatigue.
Hypnotherapy can be an extremely effective tool to re programme patterns of behaviour in the mind, it is one of the best ways to create general relaxation and calmness, dispelling anxiety within the mind and body. It can also help dispel many fears or phobias.
A free copy of the recording is given each session to be listened to in between sessions and beyond to compound all suggestions in the unconscious mind which can help to speed up, or affirm, changes required.
Through my extensive work with clients I discovered sometimes counselling alone was not always enough to get to the root of the problem and affect changes needed. Interspersed with hypnotherapy it brought desired results. In the same sense using purely hypnotherapy often does not always give the space some people need to explore and uncover deep seated problems, so often a combination of Integrative counselling and hypnotherapy can be a powerful and effective treatment.
