Phoebe Weiland - UKCP accredited psychotherapist and Human Givens Practitioner.
Managing thoughts and feelings
When we feel strong emotion - whether this be stress, anger or depression - our rational, thinking brain is compromised. This means that although part of us 'knows' something to be true, a stronger part overwhelms this knowledge and feels something quite different. Our work together will be about learning to calm and tolerate strong emotion and help your problem solving brain draw on all your resources to feel more balanced and positive.
Talk first then relax and meditate
Hypno-psychotherapy combines tried and tested counselling techniques with guided meditation This approach works in many ways, for example to:
- defuse difficult memories and experiences
- overcome depression or anxiety
- feel more confident
- manage pain
- break a habit
- face a challenge
- alleviate physical symptoms
Feel better fast
My aim is to make you feel more balanced and resilient after every appointment. Although I will need to know something about your past to understand your present, our work together will always be about the future and how to get you up and running again as quickly as possible.
How therapy sessions work
Each session begins with a focussed and practical discussion to help you work out what makes you feel better, create a road map to reach this and identify the personal resources you already have to get there as quickly as possible.
This is then followed by a relaxing few moments of guided meditation to reflect on the ideas you have generated and imagine putting them into practice. This conversation with the subconscious strengthens communication between rational thought and instinctive emotions, to get them working together again.
Learning skills and strategies
Much of what we do together will be highly practical. You may learn how to manage your time better, be more assertive or feel more comfortable in social situations. Or you could be taught strategies to defuse stress or panic, sleep better or counter negative thought patterns, which make you unhappy.
Our body often reflects our emotional state
Many of us have physical symptoms which are fuelled by our thoughts and feelings. This may be anything from a 'nervous tummy' (IBS) to joint or muscle pain, feelings of exhaustion, skin conditions or some forms of migraine. Sometimes our body is telling us something our mind finds hard to face. When the two are helped to connect and communicate with each other properly, solutions are found and symptoms often disappear.
Pain is often driven by tension, anxiety or any other high emotion. Learning to manage these feelings can have a huge impact on helping you feel more comfortable, so you can return to your normal activities.
