Why Therapy?

Just as you don’t need to have health problems to go to the gym, therapy (whether hypnotherapy based, person centred, cognitive behavioural or transactional) doesn’t just have to benefit those with anxiety, low mood, self esteem or confidence issues!

It’s a great way of motivating change – such as ridding yourself of that annoying habit or motivating you to take that next step at work or in the sporting arena.

On the other hand you may feel angry or that you ‘shouldn’t need help’ but rather than changing who you are or showing that anxiety has defeated you therapy should be empowering! A reminder of the strengths and resources that you already have and a collaboration with the therapist that helps you come up with your own solutions.

Whilst it may not feel like you are the expert in your life you know it better than anybody else. You might not see strengths but just by picking up the phone, turning up to a session or talking to a friend or health professional you are already using those strengths and getting stronger every day.

So… If you would like to more and are curious why not call and ask ‘how hypnotherapy could benefit you?’. You’re not obliged to sign up, you won’t receive ‘the hard sell’ but you will have an honest and open chat about my passion – Solution Focused Hypnotherapy!
