I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Supervisor who is passionate about helping others overcome their issues and improve their quality of life using a very powerful and positive therapy – Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. I have used it successfully myself to overcome a phobia in the past as well as using some of the techniques as part of the HypnoBirthing course my husband & I attended to prepare for the birth of our daughter in 2011. Her birth was incredible and, using self-hypnosis, my labour lasted only 6 hours and I didn’t need any pain relief whatsoever.
The following year I trained to become a HypnoBirthing Practioner and set up Serenity Birthing so I could teach HypnoBirthing to other expectant parents. I became aware early on that my sessions were helping mums and dads alleviate stress, sleep better generally and reduce anxiety. However, there were times when I wished I had further hypnotherapy training beyond the birthing parameters, to help some of my couples with their issues more directly.
That is why I decided early in 2014 that I wanted to further my training and become a Clinical Hypnotherapist so I could help those couples that needed additional support and also extend the help I offer to anyone – not just expectant mums and dads – as I know from experience just how effective and beneficial Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is.
I thoroughly enjoyed the training and have seen amazing results with my hypnotherapy clients – overcoming insomnia, panic attacks, OCD, anger issues and much more. And I am seeing people from all walks of life – nurses, mechanics, grandmothers, sales executives and travel experts, because anyone in any field can be affected by stress and anxiety.
I even used the techniques for myself and my family to great effect during our relocation to Cardiff in the summer of 2015 and then again to Bath in 2018 – selling, renting and buying properties is usually regarded as one of the most stressful things we can do in our lives, however this process was actually enjoyable for us as we managed our stress levels so much better and used techniques to make sure we remained calm and on top of things throughout the relocations.
I truly love my job and am passionate about helping people regain control in their lives and to feel more positive and empowered by the work we do together and I look forward to helping many more people in the years to come, as well as supporting my colleagues as a qualified Supervisor.
