If you’ve come here it’s probably because you, or someone you care about, is struggling with feelings of anxiety.
We need feelings of stress and anxiety in our lives – it’s part of our internal system that keeps us safe and alive. If you were a caveman being chased by a sabre-toothed tiger you would be very glad for the boost of adrenaline and other chemicals that would give you the energy you needed to run away from it, or fight it off.
The problem comes when this system acts like you are under attack all the time. Your body only has 2 settings in that regard – fight and flight or rest and repair. If you’re constantly ready to make a run for it, your body isn’t able to relax and work as well as it could, which is why dealing with anxiety is both physically and mentally exhausting.
Let Me Ask You…
Do you often feel anxious? Stressed? Tired? Have trouble sleeping?
Are you over consuming? Not just food or drink, but TV, Netflix or social media?
Are you Bored? Restless?
Do you get Headaches? Tummy Trouble?
Are you sick of feeling that way?
Are you fed up of dragging all of that around with you?
Are you ready to make a change?
The good news is that you are not broken! You’ve gotten used to living in what is designed to be a temporary state all of the time and it’s worn you out.
The great news is you can choose to change that right now.
Why should you trust me to help?
I have been there. I have lived with anxiety on and off since I was a young teenager. Our experiences are going to be different but I can relate to where you are coming from. (You can read more about my experience of anxiety here if you wish.)
I work a little differently. If you have been to counselling or CBT before you’ll be used to talking about your feelings and the causes and events that have triggered them. I tend to work content free – I will help you let go of the emotions that are holding you back without you having to tell me, or even know yourself, where they came from.
I am trained in a number of different techniques, mainly different styles of Coaching, Hypnosis and Reiki and work with you as an individual to find the best way forward for you. Each of us experiences the world differently and that’s why I focus on what you want and need rather than reading scripts or trying to fit you into a set model or program.
What You’ll Get
When you work with me you will feel more capable, more in control and more able to cope with all the crap that gets thrown at you day to day. I like to think of it as coming back into balance. Whether you’re struggling to keep up with the 100mph you’re going, or failing to get enough speed to get out of 1st gear, I’ll support you while you level it out.
Known side effects of working with me are reductions in feelings of stress and anxiety, improved sleep, increased confidence and happiness, improved performance at work or in studying and more harmonious relationships.
Anxiety affects everyone in different ways. Whether its general anxiety, phobias, addictions, habits, weight issues or anything else you do it your own way. So, it stands to reason that the solution should be as individual as you are. I use a range of techniques, such as Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy, Life Coaching, EFT, Reiki and many other tools I’ve picked up along the way to work with YOU to find the best fit. We can work online from the comfort of your own home, or you can arrange to come to my private therapy room near Carlisle, Cumbria.
Got A Question?
Do you only deal with anxiety?
No! I also work with alcohol addiction issues.
I do general Hypnosis, Life Coaching, Reiki and EFT so if you want to ask whether I can support you with something else, such as weight loss, phobias, or to stop smoking etc please get in touch.
How many sessions will I need?
Good question. That’s hard to say. Some people find they are feeling much better after 1 session, some people need up to 6 or 7 if things are a bit more complex. The average is probably around 3.
Will I need regular follow ups?
It’s up to you! Some people are satisfied the job is done for them after their sessions. Others like to come back for regular “top ups”. Either way is fine and you can see how you go. You don’t have to decide that now.
Where will sessions take place?
I work mainly online via Zoom, so you can join the session from anywhere you won’t be disturbed, are comfortable and have a half decent internet connection. If you are lucky enough to live in North Cumbria you can come in see me in person in my therapy space in Armathwaite.
How Much Do Sessions Cost?
Sessions are upto 1.5 hrs long, with the option of a 30 minute follow up call about a week later. The cost for this is £100.
For more in depth issues I offer a flexible 5 session package for £375. You can decide on this either at consultation or after your first session. (If you decide to do this package after your first session it will be £275 for a further 4 sessions.) These sessions can be spread out however is suitable and can be used for several issues, but are not transferable to other people.
If you want to ask a few more questions before booking in I offer 15 minute consultation calls for free, just get in touch and we’ll sort out a time.
How do I pay?
I’ll send you an invoice and you can pay securely online with your credit or debit card. All sessions must be paid for in advance and are not refundable within 48 hours of your session.
