I have lived in Teesside for over 40 years – for most of my adult life I worked as a teacher; I loved my job. I thought I would be in teaching until I retired, then a stressful event led me to resign my post as Head of Department and follow my heart to help people feel better quickly, with hypnotherapy.
Several years ago, I had an experience which caused me so much stress and anxiety, I decided to leave my full time Head of Department teaching role. At that point, I had been teaching for over 15 years. I thought my career was over. I was constantly worried I wasn’t good enough and constantly worried I couldn’t do enough for my students.
I thought I would stressed and anxious forever. I did not want counselling – I was too embarrassed to talk about the fact that my life had ‘crashed’ around me. I felt ashamed and vulnerable that I had become a fearful person instead of the confident career professional I had once been. I felt helpless, hopeless and overwhelmed with my thoughts; my relationship and family life started to suffer and so did my self-esteem.
Eventually, I decided that I had to do something; I just wasn’t sure where to start or how to say what I needed; I didn’t really know how to explain what was wrong, I just knew I had to feel better quickly and I wanted to make a difference to others.
A chance encounter with a good friend was the turning point for me, I knew she had been suffering with post- traumatic stress disorder and had been going through a tough time. So you can imagine I was surprised to see she was positively glowing and shining with confidence. I asked her what had happened to make her this way. She told me she had been for hypnotherapy sessions with a lovely therapist who helped her feel better quickly. She said she the sessions made her feel so relaxed, like her old self again but better – she couldn’t put her finger on why but she was glad she had gone for hypnotherapy as it was such a simple solution .
Later that week, I booked my hypnotherapy sessions and the change was immediate. I felt lighter and much clearer in my own mind than I had in years – it was as if all that toxic stress had just melted away, I also learned some really useful techniques and strategies to manage my anxiety. I was just so happy to feel better so quickly; I decided that I would retrain and help other people feel better too.
Today, I run a hypnotherapy and coaching practice in Guisborough, I also run sessions over Skype. I help lots of people with their stress and anxiety to feel better quickly, I also help people with other stressful life problems including issues that just don’t to fit into a nice neat category! I also work with Teenagers who are feeling stressed and anxious; I know how overwhelmed the mental health services are – now I work one to one with teenagers or go into schools to support teenagers to manage their stress.
This is not counselling, this is Therapeutic Coaching: a powerful blend of hypnotherapy and gentle anxiety release therapies combined with coaching for confidence and clarity. I teach people how to use easy techniques to make a difference to their ability to manage stress quickly in any setting.
Hypnotherapy and Coaching sessions will help you sort the ‘overwhelm’, clearing your mind and restoring your calm. It is the fastest way I know to get help quickly without fuss. It’s great for teenagers because it’s not counselling – we work quickly and the results are evident from the first session.
Hypnotherapy is for you or your teenager if:
- Want a gentle, natural way to sort stress
- You want to know you can take that exam, go to that interview or manage in that social situation without panic getting in the way.
- You want to stop the ‘overwhelm’ quickly and feel better
- You want to feel calmer and more in control of those thoughts that feel negative and get in your way .
- You’d love it if you could get a good night’s sleep instead of worrying!
- You just want to feel better quickly with the minimum of fuss and be able to make decisions again with a clear mind.
