Sometimes to make a change we have to be ‘sick and tired of being sick and tired’ (Albert Einstein) of those old habits, self-sabotaging patterns of behaviour and limiting beliefs you hold about yourself? If so, then now is as good a time as any to start making a change.

By using different approaches I can tailor sessions for you so that you can gain insights into your core issue/s, and support you in finding ways to cope more effectively with life: which in turn can enable you to manage situations in a more productive and effective way. I can also offer personality profiling to establish strengths and weaknesses and how to develop a balance. This is my way of offering you a helping hand towards achieving the changes you want to make and making the most out of your life.
I offer personality profiling to establish your strengths and weaknesses and how to develop a better balance in life for yourself. This offers you the opportunity to achieve the changes you want to make and by doing that making the most out of your life.

– Notwithstanding the list below I can help with many more issues, so please ask.

  • Anxiety/stress/panic attack
  • Depression
  • Weight loss/body image
  • Quit smoking
  • Fear of flying
  • Alcohol/drug/food dependency
  • Sleep issues
  • Obsessional Compulsive Disorders/Behaviours

If you feel you would prefer a non-hypnosis therapy the I can offer BWRT® Levels 1, 2 and 3 and BWRT® Master Coaching/Weight Management all of which offers models of psychology and psychotherapy created by UK professional therapist, Terence Watts, MCGI.
Like many other modern therapies, it allows a ‘core of privacy’ so that you do not have to divulge anything you would rather not talk about – in fact, the practitioner only needs to know how you feel and how you would prefer to feel instead. BWRT® is a completely new and different therapy based on the latest discoveries about the way the brain works and how it affects our moods, behaviour and emotions.
Only Certified Practitioners have been trained to deliver BWRT® and all have to adhere to a strict ethical code. Find out more at http://www.bwrt.org.uk.
BWRT® can often resolve difficulties in just a single session, where many therapies can take a lot longer. So whether you have a problem with stress, anxiety, fears, managing your weight, or something else entirely, arrange a consultation to see how I can help you.

My Background

Before becoming a Healthcare Professional and qualifying as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist and Advanced BWRT® Practitioner and BWRT® Master Life Coach and Weight Management Coach my background was as an Educationalist, holding lecturing and management positions in further and higher education.

With a Master’s Degree in Education and Training I mentored and trained staff and students and learned a great deal about the complexity of people and their needs.Many people, I found, struggled with various levels of anxiety, panic, stress, and lack of self-confidence, both on a personal and professional level.

These experiences, plus my own personal experience of dealing with the emotional rollercoaster of life which included bereavement, anxiety, stress, depression, much of which manifested in lowering my immune system as well as in physical illness and unease, which I had to work through and in turn led me to complementary/alternative therapies route, including Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy.

I found Clinical Hypnotherapy beneficial in helping and supporting me get back in control of my life and emotions and my physical wellbeing, which in turn influenced my decision to take that leap of faith and develop this area within my professional remit so I could help and support people experiencing these issues in their lives and who needed that help and support to help them work through.

Learning new ways of working can be challenging for some people although from my personal and professional experiences I can see that many of us could do with a helping hand now and again to create that focus, commitment and motivation to stay on track and create the changes we yearn. We also need that outside source from family and friends that can offer us a non-judgemental and unbiased approach with sound listening skills because sometimes we just need someone to listen.

Care and commitment

I find it motivating to be a part of a solution that can help people to make constructive changes because we all, in this complex world, at some time or another, have stressors in our lives or behaviours we would like to change. Some examples of these could include concerns or issues around work stress, social anxiety, public speaking, relationship stressors, self-confidence, fears, phobias, addictions or smoking, weight management, wanting to achieve a healthier lifestyle, to stop binge-eating or drinking too much etc.

Everyone is different and that is why the differing therapies I provide enable me to tailor therapy to your specific needs, because you are unique. All therapy is shaped to achieve, as quickly and effectively as possible, the goals and intent of the client and what they want to achieve. Therapy is about offering you, the client, the opportunity to empower yourself by getting control of who or how you want to be – to support you in recognising your own value and worth.

I offer a high standard of professional care and confidential service at Clinics in Newport and Monmouth, where you can make an appointment for an initial consultation to find out more about how we change habits, behaviours, addictions, mindset. Ring or text 07585 552462 or email monmouthclinic@yahoo.co.uk when you are ready to make that change.

Objectives of initial consultation and therapy sessions

Having that initial consultation to discuss what you want and to evaluate how best to support you is a fundamental first step.

Thereafter, sessions are working towards developing the most effective and efficient way forward for you: as you are unique with your own needs, challenges, aims and goals, the sessions can vary in time-scale, depending on the specific issues you wish to address.

Sessions are blended to fit your personality, preference, and requirements.
Therapy is reviewed, evaluated and realigned on an on-going basis to continually meet your presenting or changing needs.
Therapy can take one session or in certain cases and for certain issues may take 9-12 sessions, which when you think about that is 9-12 hours of one day of your life but in one-hour blocks over 9-12 weeks instead. The time-scale depends on you because therapy is about empowering you to empower yourself.

Investing in your future and taking that first step to finding out if this is the right therapy for you:

Email, text or telephone to make your initial consultation and take this opportunity to learn more about Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy and how it could help you or BWRT(R).

If you want to make a change then you have to do something different – you can plan to make that change but to do that you have to take action…because as Walt Disney said: ‘The best way to get started is to stop talking and begin doing.’

Do you:

  • Suffer with anxiety, stress, panic attacks, depression – whether work-related, relationship issue, social issue, personal development issue?
  • Want to lose weight, stop binge eating/comfort eating or binge drinking?
  • Want to give up a habit or addiction?
  • Want to quit smoking?
  • Have a fear of flying?
  • Find there is a recurring pattern in your life you want to change?
  • Lack confidence?
  • Need personal or professional coaching/mentoring?
  • Want to find the real you again?

By focusing on what you do want rather than what you don’t want can make a fundamental difference to you and the way you want to think, interact and behave, whether socially, in work, or with family and friends: as Einstein said ‘We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking that created them’. Sports Professionals can recognise that mindset is the difference between winning and losing.

Taking the first step can be the most difficult, however, there is no better time than the present to choose to start making the changes you want to make. An investment in yourself today could be one of the most important and rewarding steps you take to change your tomorrows.

If you are still wondering whether Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy or BrainWorking Recursive Therapy (BWRT®) is the right path for you then please telephone or text me on 07585 552462 or email me at monmouthclinic@yahoo.co.uk to make an initial consultation.
