Sleep & Insomnia

Lying in bed and trying to sleep is extremely frustrating when it does not occur naturally. 

Research has proven that treating insomnia can be achieved through techniques such as hypnosis, mindfulness, and CBT and is recommended by the NHS.

 

combine a range of these techniques to increase both the quality and quantity of your sleep, as well as address the underlying reasons for insomnia. 

More specifically, you will acquire skills on how to change your sleep habits while learning new techniques to reach a more relaxed state, without relying on medication.

Anxiety, Stress, & Phobias

Anxiety can be paralyzing. It can keep us from making friends, putting ourselves in social situations, or moving forward in our careers. Even more than that, it is extremely uncomfortable. It can interfere with our everyday lives and sometimes even our health.

Anxiety can be experienced both somatically and cognitively, and people’s reactions to their anxiety can often exacerbate the symptoms.

I utilize hypnotic techniques combined with CBT to address troubling symptoms. In reaching a relaxed and reflective state, you're able to decrease the intensity of your anxious feelings while gaining an insight into the root causes. 

I treat fears such as public speaking, flying, heights and test taking as well as phobias to needles, animals, or other anxiety-provoking stimuli. Generally, people become fearful of the stimuli, as well as their own somatic reaction to it. Hypnosis works by altering the way you view the fear, as well as calming your reaction to that fear.
