Hypnotherapy and mental health well-being service in Welwyn

Are you finding that anxiety is stopping you from living life to the full? Can you remember the fun-loving, CONFIDENT person that you used to be and crave to feel and act like them again? Does it feel like negative thoughts are a constant companion?  They’re with you throughout the day, stop you from enjoying peaceful sleep and then greet you when you lethargically wake.

Thankfully we can use hypnotherapy to help you positively change your current mindset and enable you to confidently move forwards with your life.

Hypnotherapy can be used to help people overcome many different problem areas in their lives. High levels of stress and anxiety are unfortunately all too common in our modern-day society. Anxiety can easily be created as a result of the demands placed on us both at work and at home. This can leave us feeling OVERWHELMED, like we’re constantly trying to keep too many plates spinning and fearing the inevitable crash.

There are many conditions that are either exacerbated by or are created as a direct result of having high anxiety levels. I have successfully helped people to overcome a wide range of anxiety-related conditions, links to the most common ones are below

Solution focused hypnotherapy in Welwyn

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a safe, modern type of therapy that is based on neuroscience. It involves both talking therapy and hypnotherapy. Anxiety tends to build up gradually and when it does we spend more time thinking from the negative, obsessional and vigilant part of our brain.

This is why it can feel like negative thoughts are a CONSTANT companion. When eventually one negative thought disappears it seems like there’s always another one keen to take its place.

Unlike other forms of therapy, rather than focusing on your problem, our talk focuses on how you want to think, feel and act in the future. Your brain is constantly changing. It’s building up new connections all the time. By focusing our talk on your desired future you build up new pathways in your brain.

Using hypnotherapy at the end of your session helps to define and build those pathways more QUICKLY and effectively.

Within just a few short weeks your thinking changes, so that instead of thinking from the negative and emotional part of your brain, you are able to think from the positive, rational and intellectual parts. This allows you to find RELIEF from whatever type of anxiety you are currently suffering from. As there is no anxiety in this part of your brain, you break free from the cycle of negative thinking and instead can look forward to thinking positively about your future.

Just imagine what you could ACHIEVE without your anxiety holding you back!

Hypnotherapy for Children in Welwyn Garden City

Are you worried about the effect that anxiety is having on your child? Perhaps you are seeing them withdraw from activities they used to enjoy or are witnessing them respond to situations with anger and frustration more frequently. Maybe damaging habits have now taken hold and are NEGATIVELY affecting family life.

Solution focused hypnotherapy can be extremely effective in helping children from around the age of 7 upwards to find relief from their condition. As it is outcome and future-focused there is never any need for them to analyse and discuss the actual problem.

This allows your child to become ENGAGED in their therapy as they are able to imagine and describe their future when the problem no longer exists. Anxiety is unfortunately all too common in children. Statistics show that 3 in 4 mental illnesses start before the age of 18, with 2 in 4 being evident before the age of 14. The services CAMHS offers are under so much pressure that most children will no longer qualify for treatment.

My experience of being a teacher for the last 17 years paints a similar picture. Whilst there has without a doubt been a rise in the prevalence of children’s mental health conditions, there just aren’t the resources to help each child.

I love helping children take CONTROL of their anxiety so they can reach their POTENTIAL!

Why am I anxious?

Anxiety is created when we worry or think negatively about a situation or event. You can WORRY about things that have happened in the past, present, or may happen in the future.

Perhaps you find that you spend much of your day negatively forecasting the future, worrying about what might happen.

Your mind can’t tell the difference between imagination and reality, so if you think the outcome is likely to be negative your brain will accept that as fact. You’re activating your fight/ flight response which will mean that you find it difficult to switch off and RELAX.

When you are anxious you can’t think with logic, reason or intellect.  You think from a part of your brain that is negative. It will always see things from the worst possible perspective.

It’s constantly in a state of high alert looking out for the next thing to worry about. It’s common for people to feel as though they’re caught in a vicious circle, feeling like they are TRAPPED inside their heads with negative thoughts spinning around constantly.

TOGETHER we can quickly CALM your mind so you can look forward to making the most of your life!

Online hypnotherapy in Welwyn via Zoom

I conduct my therapy sessions via Zoom so I am able to help people from a wide geographical area. However, I find many of my clients come for hypnotherapy in Welwyn Garden City and its surrounding areas.

Clients have found working by Zoom really beneficial as it has meant that there is no need for them to make travel arrangements.

It’s just one less thing to worry about. It also means that it can fit more easily into a busy day, as you only need to schedule the therapy session without the need to include travel time on either side.
