Depression, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience in our lives. Through hypnotherapy, counselling or a combination of both, we are able to help you recover your motivation, your perspective, and find the joy and bliss that you can have in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger from post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. Maybe Things have happened in your childhood, that you are struggling to come to terms with. Counselling will help you to move forward.
Relationship counselling can be beneficial for those who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held in a supportive , nonjudgemental enviroment, so that you can discuss issues and decide on solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
However relationship counselling can also mean helping you move on from the end of a destructive relationship, find a loving partner, find out what has been holding you back, helping you find and keep happiness.
DEALING WITH PHOBIAS.
A phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an animal, object, situation, place or feeling. Hypnotherapy is well known for being able to get inside your conscious mind, and change a few of your long held beliefs. Hypnotherapy can be life changing if you are a sufferer of chronic phobias.
A phobic’s symptoms are much more pronounced than just being fearful or scared. The phobic can experience an unrealistic sense of danger and fright. You can have exaggerated feelings about a situation or object. Even though intellectually you may know the feelings are unreasonable or unrealistic, you can’t seem to help yourself.
If the phobia becomes very severe, you may start to arrange your life around the things that are causing you anxiety. As well as severely restricting your day to day life, it can also cause you considerable anguish.
Phobias can be associated with a particular event, incident, or trauma. A phobia may be a learned response copied from our parents. If your parents hate spiders, you are more likely to be scared of spiders too. Genetics also have a role to play. Some people are born with a tendency to be anxious or shy.
Certain phobias can be very severe and life changing. Complex phobias such as agoraphobia can be very disabling indeed if left untreated. This phobia is commonly thought to be the fear of wide open spaces, but often the person may be avoiding situations such as not wanting to travel on public transport. Not wanting to face crowds of people. A general feeling of acute anxiety when outside, can be enough to make the person want to stay indoors.
So, what to do?
Many people will choose to live with a phobia and just put-up with the symptoms. It often depends on how likely you are to encounter your phobia. If it is flying for instance, then you can avoid flying. ( very sad because hypnotherapy can easily fix this one.) You can avoid snakes fairly easily in the UK. However, if it is the fear of going outside, Agoraphobia, then you have a problem.
Phonics’ will take great care to avoid the object, animal or situation. However if you continue to try and avoid whatever you are afraid of, you can often make the situation worse.
Simple phobias can be treated through gradual exposure to the situation, animal, place or object. This is known as desensitisation therapy.
This is where Hypnotherapy can be an invaluable tool to help overcome simple phobias. Phobias such as flying, spiders, bees, heights, public speaking can be treated successfully, often after only one or two treatments. Clients often come back for a Top-up just before a long flight, or before an important speech or interview.
Treating complex phobias however, can take longer. This may involve counselling or life coaching as well as Hypnotherapy. Clients are always made to feel calm, comfortable and able to talk freely about their problems. Issues and anxieties can be frightening but are able to be addressed. Your life will improve beyond all your expectations.

“I contacted Julia regarding some help with dieting. I had been trying to lose weight without much success for ages, and felt that hypnotherapy was worth a try.
At the start of my session we discussed what foods/treats that I thought were my downfall, and this allowed Julia to personalise my session.
In the 4 months since my session I have lost 1 stone and 5 lbs, and more importantly I have kept it off in spite of going on holiday and regular meals out.
I would thoroughly recommend this lovely lady for any therapy that you might be considering”.

DEALING WITH STRESS.
We all have to deal with stress. In many ways,
Try to avoid, or at least restrict your consumption of drinks containing caffeine or alcohol. Nicotine, even chocolate can sometimes make you feel spaced out. You could even try them out one at a time to see which one affects you the most. Try to cut out the Nicotine, or Alcohol altogether if you possibly can. They are of course all stimulants and they do just that.
Managing your time is one of the best pieces of advice ever. We have all heard the expression work smarter not harder, well it’s true. If you can get organised so that things run smoothly, your life will be transformed. There are many tools and tricks out there to help, never miss that deadline, meeting, anniversary or birthday again.
Just talking to someone, your friends, family or even a professional, can make all the difference.
Make time for physical activity as part of your week. Stress can cause the fight or flight hormones to go crazy, as you navigate you’re stressed out work life balance. So although you don’t really have to run from a grizzly bear, your body thinks you do. Physical activity of almost any kind can help get rid of excessive stress hormones and restore your body and mind to a calmer and more relaxed.
Learning to say NO. This is one of the most important things you can say to protect yourself against stress. No need to be rude……… But you do not have to everyone else’s work as well as your own. You can practice saying, ”I can’t help you with that right now as I have other commitments” or “Now is not a great time for me as I am in the middle of something”. “Could you ask me again next week”? Again this takes practice, but the dividends will really pay off.
Try Relaxation Techniques.
One simple way is focus on one word or phrase that you find has a positive meaning for you. Such as love, peace or calm. Or self-affirming mantras such as “grant me peace and serenity” or “ I am getting stronger every day”. Don’t worry if your mind wanders at first. Every time you feel your attention wandering, just renew your focus. Start with just a minute, and work up to three. Relaxation is a skill that has to be learned.
If any of the above techniques, need more discussion, practice or help, please feel free to book a discovery call on 07967808250.

I had several hypnotherapy sessions with Julia prior to my daughters birth. I felt able to take myself to my special place. I am sure that my husband and I were able to relax during the birth more than we would have. Whilst I can’t say the birth was pain free……. I certainly think it was a nicer experience for having the treatment.

If you suffer from anxiety, then you will know how debilitating it can be. Everyone suffers from fear and anxiety sometimes. This a quite natural and normal reaction to specific events, or situations. Often it is a good emotion designed to keep you safe. Getting out of the way of a runaway train for instance, requires quick reactions, extra oxygen, and adrenaline to make things happen quickly. Sometimes anxiety can result from an unresolved medical condition.
The problems arise when the anxiety is present, but has no issue to deal with. The fear and anxiety you feel, is out of all proportion to the actual perceived danger.
Uncontrollable and irrational worries that can start to take up a lot of your time, need to be dealt with quickly. GAD (generalised anxiety disorder) can develop in childhood or Adulthood. Social anxiety disorders, are also common in both children and adults. Coping with anxiety on a regular basis can be very challenging, not to mention time consuming.
Constantly worrying about panic attacks, (that may never happen) worries about outcomes of situations that, again may never happen can severely restrict your ability to live your life, your way. Therapy can really help to gain perspective, through dissuasion, discussion, and rational thinking. Learning coping mechanisms can really help.
