Understanding Anxiety

I will be hosting an Introductory FREE seminar Saturday 30th September 2017 from 4pm until 5pm. This seminar will help you to have a good understanding of why we suffer from anxiety and how it affects us both mentally and physically. There will be an opportunity to ask questions. This will enable you to understand both yourself and those around you, enabling you to take appropriate action.

This will be followed by a course “Handling Anxiety” this will run over two weeks Saturday 7th and 14th October from 2pm until 4pm. The aim of this course is to give healthy coping mechanisms and strategies for handling anxiety. These skills can be transferred to others in your family, particularly children during times of stress.

On completion of the course you will be better able to manage your anxiety and have the knowledge and techniques to help your children.

Both the seminar and the Course will be held at our premises 10/12 Culley Court, Orton Southgate. Peterborough. PE2 6WA in conduction with Abacus Tutoring Academy.

Do you need to address your eating habits?

Attempting to change your eating habits overnight isn’t sensible or lever. Altering everything at once usually leads to cheating or quitting on your new eating plan.

Changing your attitude towards food and increasing your motivation to exercise is the only way to achieve long lasting results.

Hypnotherapy can help you achieve this by altering your mindset. The subconscious mind can be addressed, whilst the conscious mind is quiet, helping to change habits and coping mechanisms that we have learned over the years.

Counselling, either alone or alongside hypnotherapy, can help us address the underlying issues that have caused the problem in the first place. Eating disorders, of any sort, bingeing, starving, or any version of those, stem from a time when we required a defense mechanism to help us cope with our feelings.

Take the first step towards your goal. Call, message or email me to arrange a free telephone consultation.

Are Childhood Issues Holding You Back?

When a client comes to see me, I ask them “what brings you here?” Sometimes the answer is “I don’t know but I just don’t feel right” often they say that are stressed, anxious or depressed. Although the here and now is the starting point, the lead up to the unsettled feelings need to be examined. There may or may not be hidden trauma, but when there is and the trauma is addressed, it is like starting life afresh, the cloud lifts and we can move forwards.

Feeling lost? 


You know what it’s like when you do something crazy, like go on a fairground ride, play on the trampoline with the kids, or something really crazy like jump out of a plane! In those moments you become that free child that you were,  before the pressures and responsibilities started to kick in. Sometimes we can forget that inner child, reconnecting with her can open up a world of fun, freedom and happiness.

What’s holding you back?

I meet people everyday that want help with things that on the surface, seem relatively easy to solve. Maybe its weight loss, nailbiting, failure to achieve their goals. The list is endless,  very often within a short period of time, possibly just minutes into a consultation, it becomes very obvious there are deeper issues which are holding them back. These are often childhood issues that just keep servicing, we keep pushing them down but they are like a balloon inside us,  bobbing about,  and until they are released they will always cause disruption.

It’s not selfish to put yourself first!

I hear it all the time, I can’t have counselling because I need to help my husband, wife, son, daughter, mum, dad etc.. but the fact is if you don’t look after yourself, you aren’t able to help anyone else. Especially as a parent, you owe it to a family to look after your own well-being. When we are stronger, we are more powerful, and we are more productive in both our personal, and our work life. To take a look at yourself, do you need a bit of self help? Are you are the proverbial Swan kicking beneath the water, whilst everyone thinks you are calm?  Take the first step and have some talking therapy.

Healing the Past and Embracing the Future

None of us like to feel hurt. Painful emotions are difficult to handle, we develop coping mechanisms to avoid them. To an extent this is healthy, but if we never allow ourselves to “feel”, those hurtful feeling will just resurface and gain momentum.

So just take time to simply “be”. Breath and know that the feelings will pass, you will feel better. You will come through the other side, and you will learn that feeling these emotions won’t destroy you.

Counselling and Hypnotherapy can help us work through difficult emotions, firstly need to recognise them, understand them then address them. This process brings healing and inner peace. This then allows us to move forwards and reach our life goals.

Coping with Grief and Loss

Grief is a natural process and can, in normal circumstances can take up to two years. Grief that is complicated by difficult relationships, or if you have suffered more than one loss in a relatively short period of time, this normal process can become more challenging. Counselling can help guide you successfully through this process. For more information please contact me and we can discuss how you can be helped.
