Question that you might have are;-

What is the difference between counselling and psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is more in depth and is often long term work and it requires the counsellor to be more knowledgeable in working with complex issues. I am able to offer both counselling and psychotherapy according to what works best for you.

The issues that I can work with you work with are

I work with a wide variety of issues. In our first session I would like to find out about what you wish to work on and together we would decide the best way to work through your issues.

You might decide that you are not ready to work on some of your issues that’s  ok because counselling is about what is right for you and you have the right to choose.

What is hypnotherapy?

is  a form of  therapy where the therapist work with the client by  enabling the client to achieve a  state relaxation  where their mind is focused on making changes  such as treating phobias  and fears , anxiety disorders . Hypnotherapy can also be used to manage pain and weight loss, also in developing a positive self esteem and building confidence also smoking cessation. Like all counselling and therapy hypnotherapy is only used with clients who chose to access this form of therapy.
