I have worked as a nurse and midwife with the NHS and now work on a neonatel intensive care unit where I have worked for 30 years looking after very sick and very pre-term babies and their families. My hypnotherapy reflects the areas that I have a lot of experience in and where I have decided to use all the knowledge and skills that I have to help you to make the changes that you want to make.
Anxiety, stress and NHS staff
If you are working in a high powered professional job with little or no support I understand and can teach you tools and strategies to help you to manage your feelings emotions and reactions when working in these environments.
(COVID 19 Support)
After being extremely ill in hospital with Covid 19 I found that the techniques used in hypnotherapy were very useful in helping me in my recovery and helping me to cope with breathlessness, poor appetite, lack of energy, headaches, joint pains, irritability, and affecting my immune system. Hypnotherapy can support you in your recovery and the techniques can be very easy to use.
Hypnotherapy is not a cure but can support you through your journey teaching you relaxation, techniques and strategies to help with stress, frustration. Worries and fears. Research has shown there are many factors that can interfere with natural fertility so using the mind/body connection to teach you techniques during hypnosis that can assist you in your journey to optimise the chances of natural conception.
Research has shown that hypnotherapy can increase your milk supply when breastfeeding. Breast milk is amazing and changes constantly to meet the needs of your baby at that time, producing antibodies in relation to your babies illness. It makes sense, you relax your baby relaxes and your milk supply increases.
Support for new parents and those with babies in NICU
I offer a relaxation session with your baby helping you to make that vital connection with your baby. I offer this for mums and dads, recognising that dads can feel left out and struggle to make a connection with their baby or I can do the session with both parents together with their baby, connecting you as a family, with one of you holding the baby. This is such a good experience for you and your baby and for you to connect and bond as a family.
Post natal depression
It is very difficult with many feelings and hormones circulating. I offer support and coping tools and strategies to help you in a non judgmental empathetic way. Its also nice to combine this with a relaxation session with your baby. having some time together to bond and connect with your baby is an enjoyable experience for both of you.
