In 2003 I started to suffer from crippling anxiety that manifested itself as frequent panic attacks. As a consequence I became addicted to my work, a world in which I excelled, and a place in which I was able to control my nerves. In private, on the other hand, I drank like a fish to cope with my feelings of insufficiency.
A few years later it all got too much when I was no longer able to go to work due to the severity of my panic attacks. I had already been attending therapy for well over a year, however, whilst helpful, I was going nowhere fast.
By luck I stumbled across a hypnotherapist’s practice and within 48 hours I was sat opposite the hypnotherapist that would help me find my way out of the anxiety and panic attacks that had been following me around for years. And he did so in one session that lasted around 90 minutes.
Years went by until over a decade later I found help from hypnotherapy yet again, when I rid myself of a number of addictions, including alcohol. I, like so many others, used alcohol to counteract my stressful career until one day I understood that it was actually the cause of the stress in my life. While I allowed alcohol to control me, I would never be in control of my life. I kept on repeating the same patterns, unable to develop as a person. I could never meet my goals nor become the best version of me.
Today I live a life of which I am superbly proud, a life in which I am an alcohol free mother to a young child, in control of my emotions and my behaviours. I employ self-respect in all areas of my life and I now know what healthy boundaries look like, and this has lead to far improved relationships in my personal life.
I have trained with a well known Harley Street practitioner to form my practice. I am a Registered Hypnotherapist certified by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and I am registered with the National Guild of Hypnotherapists.
Through this personal experience of a whole spectrum of issues I hope to be able to work with you on your journey to finding your best confident and addiction free self.
Hypnotherapy can work wonders, and I would love to work with you to achieve the change that you are looking for in your life.
For me there is no doubt about it, having tried various courses and therapies: hypnotherapy is the fastest route to change IF you want it.
