Treatment for
Types of Therapy

Do you want to achieve your goals and make lasting and powerful changes, so that you can enjoy your life more fully?

Therapy is probably the most powerful and effective tool you could ever have in your journey to success, health and happiness. Therapy is your investment in you!

I work with many clients to achieve positive goals and outcomes, using a comprehensive toolbox including the most effective and robust elements from CBT, hypnotherapy, REBT, EMDR and other modalities.

You may have goals such as;

Overcoming problems which are holding you back. For example, losing weight and developing a healthier lifestyle

Overcoming FEARS which are closing in the boundaries of your world. For example, fear of change, being alone/single, getting older

Dealing with depression

Dealing with anxiety problems

Setting and achieving personal goals for success, for example, more self confidence or increased motivation

Removal of fears and phobias

Breaking unwanted habits. For example, hair pulling, stopping smoking

For information on some of the issues therapy can help with, see the list on the left of this page.
