other complimentary disciplines

For many people, complementary therapies are preferable to more orthodox treatments; however, their practices and techniques really do come to the fore at those times when conventional treatments cease to have a complete answer, as they sometime seem to do.

In my practice, I often employ a combination of treatments and techniques. Of course, no two clients are the same and no two people respond to either treatment or coaching in exactly the same way. For this reason, I find it is helpful to have a number of effective tools in my toolbox. Apart from actual hypnosis, NLP and mindfulness practices, I frequently also employ aspects of one or more of the following disciplines and therapies. My approach, however, very does much depend on the person I am seeing and the issue we are dealing with.

 

guided imagery

The term “guided imagery” covers a number of techniques now used in clinical practice. Your mental images are at the very heart of both who you think you are and what you believe the world to be like. They determine what you imagine is likely to happen to you and strongly influence your beliefs and attitudes in almost every other area of your life. Although to work with these mental images is probably one of the oldest and one of the most ubiquitous forms of medicine, it is also one that is beginning to find widespread scientific acceptance. read more ...

 

eye movement desensitisation and reprogramming (emdr)

EMDR is a form of psychotherapy that was first developed by the American psychologist and educator Francine Shapiro. It was established in the late 1980s, after she first noticed that certain eye movements had the effect of reducing the intensity of disturbing thoughts. She found that bringing one’s eye movements under voluntary control, while thinking about the traumatic thought or idea, could serve to reduce feelings of anxiety associated with that thought or idea. read more ...

 

cognitive behavioural therapy (cbt)

CBT is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems. It enables you to make sense of the difficult issues you face by breaking them down into smaller, easier to handle, parts. It works on the premise that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and behaviours are all interconnected. Each one affects the others, and together they can trigger negative spirals in us. Its methods set out to help break such unhelpful cycles. read more ...

 

age-regression

You are naturally shaped by the many experiences you have been through during your life. In each case, the resultant memories, be they good or bad, will have served to affect your outlook on things. Age-regression is a hypnotherapeutic technique that has the function of helping you to tap into this vital history and then go on to deal with its effects on your life. read more ...

 

emotional freedom technique (eft)

In theory, EFT is a healing technique that works with the body’s acupuncture/meridian points. Developed by American psychologist Dr Roger Callahan and others more than 30 years ago, it employs a gentle tapping protocol rather than needles, and is designed to release unwanted negative energies in order to stimulate the body’s own natural healing system. read more ...
