Hypno therapy assisted birth is one of the nicest ways to introduce your new baby to the world.
When ever we see animals, where in the wild or in the zoo, it has been observed that they can sense they are being watched. It has been found that animals can speed up or slow thier labour according to the prevailing conditions.
its the same with Humans.
When a woman is expecting, it doesn't mean her sense of self preservation is suspended. In fact it is more acute,as she now has her unborn child to think of. If she saw a wild animal she would still be frightened. This would secrete hormones such as adrenaline and slow the birth whilst she found a safer place. FEAR SLOWS DOWN THE BIRTH PROCESS.
Tense muscles hold baby back from coming seamlessly down the birth canal. Your birthing is likely to be longer and more painful if you tense all your muscles in fear. learn to relax. Read the article below for more information.

I went to see Julia for some help with Life mapping and positivity. I had two sessions with her, and was instantly aware of some changes having taken place.
I found the sessions professional and relaxing.
Julia instantly made me feel calm.
I would like to thank Julia for helping me break through some self doubt and uncertainty, (I now run my own successful business) and i look fwd to more sessions with her.
Hi everyone,I am Bel and i am useless at writing reviews so please bear with me. Nine weeks ago, I had a virtual gastric band fitted by Julia. I am really pleased with the results so far! not only have my eating habits and food consumption changed, but I am feeling the results of the hypnosis in other ares of my life as well.
Julia has been truly instrumental in helping me to change my life for the better in an energising and productive way. Her guidance and encouragement on my journey to a better way of living has been absolutely invaluable. I always feel positive after our sessions. I would recommend her unhesitatingly to anyone seeking support for those problems that seem insurmountable- with Julia's help they are not!
As a trained Therapist myself, I am often critical when receiving services. but I can honestly say that Julia is Amazing. She is so friendly and welcoming, I immediately felt relaxed with her.
Although she is incredibly professional, she is also 'Real' and great fun. I trust her implicitly, and 100% RECOMMEND HER SERVICES!
Only after we had the four week follow up did I realise I had changed my mind set completely. Deep rooted perceptions about food, self image, and dare i say it self believe have changed. After years of crash dieting and self loathing, I am rediscovering myself again. I am phyiscally fitter, and mentally stronger, and although i am not at my goal yet, i know that i will get there. Thanks Julia for being by my side in my rediscovery journey.
I contacted Julia regarding some help with dieting. i had been trying to lose weight without success In the 4 months since my last session I have lost 1 stone 5 llbs. More importantly I have kept it off. Thank you so much.

I had a course of Hypnotherapy sessions before the birth of my daughter.I found myself able to relax far more at the birth than I would have anticipated. I am sure this led to less pain and trauma than would otherwise have been the case .
I had several hypnotherapy sessions prior to my baby's birth. I felt able to take myself off to my special place, and was far more relaxed than i expected. i am sure the whole experience was nicer than it would have been with out treatment. Sam
After a long and difficult time caught in a dept trap, Julia taught me strategies to Make a plan to get it under control. It took a while, but I am now dept free, and even have savings! I still have to be very careful, but i now have the strength to keep it up.
After several years of being too anxious to go on a flight, Julia gave me both the tools and the confidence to give flying another go. It was a great success. thanks! Jon
I would thoroughly recommend this lovely lady for any therapy you might be considering! Julia was able to personalise my sessions to include foods that have been my downfall before. I now have my weight under control.
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.
Phobics’ 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.
Please feel free to have a call and have a no obligation discovery chat about a course of action that will bring success.
Please call to discuss your own particular cicumstances.

“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.

First of all congratulations! A pregnancy is a wonderful time in a woman’s life, but good preparation cannot be emphasized enough!!
We all know that giving birth can be a very scary time. Leaning to relax and look forward to your new baby is such a joy. A relaxed new mum also means much more chance of a relaxed new baby!
I aim to teach you to relax into birth helping to minimize the pain, but also minimize the amount of drugs you may need. If you can relax during the labour, and not clench all of your muscles, then labour will also be quicker. Always a bonus.
In five sessions to suit you, you will learn to relax in the last few weeks, to recognise labour, how to relax into the feelings it brings, how to best share this with your partner and how to bond with your baby when he or she is born.
Learning to relax with your baby after he or she is born..
Choosing your special place and learning to take yourself there
Recognising labour, discussing a birth plan ( choosing the right one for you) and learning how to experience joy and excitement instead of fear and panic.
An optional session for both you and your birthing partner. Ways that your partner can be involved, and help to make the experience more relaxed and calm.
We will cover the many birth options open to you and decide on a birthing plan.
Please feel free to call and have an informal chat to answer any questions you may have.
My name is Helen, I had a course of hypnotherapy sessions before the birth of my daughter. I found the sessions really relaxing, I found myself able to relax far more at the birth than I would have anticipated. I am sure this lead to less pain and trauma than would otherwise have been the case. Will defiantly be coming back next time!
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 essential, 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.
Anxiety symptoms include, but are not restricted to the following,
Feeling nervous, restless or tense for no reason.
Having a sense of impending doom.
Feeling an increased heartbeat.
Having trouble sleeping.
Feeling weak and tired all the time.
Being Unable to concentrate.
Having the urge to avoid things/ certain people /events.
Experiencing gastrointestinal (tummy) problems.
Different types of anxiety can include
The fear of places or situations, that might make you feel embarrassed, trapped, helpless or out of control.
Anxiety disorders caused directly by a medical condition.
Physical feelings of sudden, fear, terror, intense anxiety. Shortness of breath, chest pain, pounding or fluttering heart. (Palpitations). This leads to worries about when more attacks may occur.
Separation anxiety disorder.
This is a childhood disorder that is related to the loss or separation of one or more parents or parental figure’s.
Social anxiety disorder.
Involves the avoidance of social situations due to high levels of fear and anxiety that could be caused be acute self-consciousness, acute concerns about being judged or viewed negatively by others.
Anxiety caused by phobias.
See phobias section.
Substance induced anxiety disorder.
Anxiety or panic caused by mis-use of drugs or alcohol. Prescription Medications over use, and or being exposed to a toxic substance.
To conclude, your symptoms may not go away on their own. They could get worse over time.
If you feel that your anxiety is interfering with your life, your relationships or your career too much. If you are finding it difficult to control your fears, then call for a discovery chat about how we can work together to help resolve these Issues.
The method of counselIing chosen should depend on you. Counselling can depend very much on your personality and your ability to talk or listen. Some people just want a shoulder to cry on, and somebody to listen to their problems. Others really need advice or help with making decisions. Still others may need another way to look at situations, perhaps giving you a different way forward than the one you had envisaged.
Sometimes when circumstances cannot be changed, a better understanding of how to deal with them can help. Accepting things you cannot change is always difficult, but if you change the way you look at life, maybe life can become more comfortable.
You need to find a counsellor who you feel you can empathise with, who you feel is sympathetic to your needs, and whom you feel has your best interests in mind. Someone who will encourage you to make sense of the situation you find yourself in, and find ways to make changes.
Always think about what you would like to achieve before getting in touch with a counsellor. You can always change your goals as time goes on, or perhaps in the light of new information.
With this in mind I like to provide a 20 minute discovery phone call to decide on the way forward, if together we can make a difference.
