Being a new parent or with a growing family is a transition which is exciting but at the same time can also be very challenging. Trying to cope after having a difficult birth, sleep deprivation, a loss of identity and feeling low are just some of the issues parents can face. Perhaps everyone else appears to be coping really well so finding it more difficult comes with feelings of guilt or shame. If you are struggling and feel you need a bit of support, a chat, or someone to listen, please come and find me at my free wellbeing drop-in every Wednesday between 10am-12pm at Langton Pavilion Cafe, Langton Green, Tunbridge Wells TN3 0JJ.
Achieve My Goals…Be More Confident and Self-Assured…Feel More In Control…Feel Good About My Self…Move Forward In My Life…These are just a few of the ‘wants’ which people have but can’t seem to reach. This is because it’s not easy to change they way we think, feel and subsequently behave. But I believe with hypnosis and hypnotherapy you can achieve whatever you want and make that change! But you have to go deep within yourself as this is where your inner thoughts and feelings lie which can be extremely limiting and of which can prevent you from moving forward in your life in some way. Life has a way of hypnotising us by creating limiting beliefs and picking up habits, fears and anxieties along the way through the experiences we are exposed to. Surprisingly, what I do through hypnosis and hypnotherapy is de-hypnotise people so that they can release those limiting beliefs, anxieties and fears in order to have the happy and fulfilled life they want.
Here’s what some people have said about me, hypnosis and hypnotherapy
Your download has really helped. Since we saw you, my daughter has spent all day with her puppy and taken her on walks, fed her, cuddled her, and helped teach her tricks. It has been amazing. I have been telling all my family and friends how amazing it has been. I never thought my daughter would be able to do all these things but she has become pretty much inseparable and best buddies with her puppy. I really can’t thank you enough.
I have noticed so much change. I am much more relaxed and when I choose to stop work I stop. I am choosing things for me and feeling that my time off is that, time off. My day off this week really felt like a day off. There is a definite change – thank you! I feel so much more free to enjoy both work time work and play time!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your support over the last few months. Having your support, and that couple of hours to myself to process everything, made such a difference to how I’ve approached everything and I really can’t thank you enough. You’ll be glad to hear I also listened to your recording in the hospital - the triage room stressed me out a bit but it refocused me beautifully.
I came to see Anne shortly before the birth of my second child, seeking help to overcome a previous traumatic birth and to make a decision on what type of birth would be best this time. The time we spent together was invaluable to help me process what had happened last time, overcome fears, make clear decisions and learn relaxation techniques (useful beyond birth). I have no doubt that this is why my son’s birth was as good as I could have hoped for, enabling me to feel calm, positive and in control, before, during and after. I am so thankful for Anne’s help, kindness and support and will recommend her to anyone.
I contacted Anne in the hope of feeling more positive about my birthing experience. It was all too easy to remember and focus on the negatives rather than the positives, and I strongly felt that I could never have another baby because I had experienced such a traumatic labour. My daughter was ten months old yet I still avoided taking about her birth and was terrified of becoming pregnant again, despite always wanting a big family. I hadn't considered how dramatic the change in my feelings would be after our first session. Anne helped me to focus on what my "perfect birth" would look like, and I came to realise that the positive aspects of my labour weren't far from the "perfect" I envisaged. I went from being terrified of becoming pregnant again, to feeling really empowered by my previous experience, and actually positive about doing it again! I'd never experienced hypnotherapy before; it's nothing like you see on TV, I would describe it more as relaxation techniques combined with mindfulness, but that doesn't do it justice. The mind is an incredibly powerful tool, and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone suffering from birth trauma. It's changed my focus on my previous birth and given me a really positive outlook on the prospect of having a second child.
As a very skeptical, realistic individual I didn't have a positive opinion of hypnotherapy. However, after speaking with Anne and having an open-mind, I thought I'd give it a go. What. A. Decision. I. Made! It was as if Anne pulled out multiple thorns I had been carrying all my adult life. I had no idea I had been carrying these feelings. After a few sessions with Anne, I can honestly say I feel like a whole woman for the first time in my life. I'm now self aware of me, my emotions, my being and my decisions. Absolutely incredible. I'd highly recommend hypnotherapy with Anne to anyone.
I came to visit Anne for a reason I wasn’t sure could be dealt with by hypnotherapy as it relates to a mother / daughter relationship, but Anne immediately calmed my thoughts and said that hypnotherapy can tackle all sorts of issues. In my first session with Anne, I knew I had come to the right person. Anne was supportive and caring and had a deep understanding of my worries. I was concerned that I wouldn’t necessarily ease in to the hypnotherapy, but Anne was there with a calming voice and the right questions to work through my situation. Thank you Anne for your help and support.
My daughter suffers with severe anxiety and we have been seeking a way to give her the tools to manage it. I am fortunate to be a colleague of Anne’s and knew I could trust her. We spoke about my daughters anxieties prior to our appointment and some of her favourite things so that when they met, all would be familiar to her. Anne was warm, calm and welcoming and my daughter settled straight away. They spoke about how the worries made her feel and the session was so focused and I saw my little girl open up. I understood more. Toward the end we relaxed into a personalised script that made both of us drift away. At the end of the session she was given a helium balloon to take her worries away. We now listen to the script every night before bed and we do a lot more talking. We talk over problems and acknowledge them before sending them away. My daughter now has the skills to manage her own anxiety with the help and support of us. It is so empowering to know that we, as parents, have the ability to help our little girl and that the support of Anne is always there.
"I had been suffering with a very complicated family relationships and my childhood experiences for many many years. I had never talked about my childhood to anyone apart from my husband, but I know it was always giving me a negative energy. I didn't know much about hypnotherapy, so I didn't know what to expect or if it would work. I was very nervous when I went to see Anne for the first time, but she made me feel relaxed and welcome. Her approach was very calming and it was very easy to follow her instructions in a very relaxed situation. It was a strange but pleasant feeling after the session, I felt very refreshed and started to think very positively. Anne is an amazing hypnotherapist. I highly recommend her to anyone who has any issues, big or small, and they think that hypnotherapy might help. "
"Anne has really helped me deal with a phobia I have which was starting to impact on my life. Anne took time to really listen without any judgment and really helped me get to the root of the problem and helped me with techniques to deal with issues of anxiety and feeling trapped. She provides a safe and caring environment to deal with your issues and discuss them with her. Hypnosis helped my sub-conscious get on the same page as my conscious mind without constantly fearing my phobia and letting it dictate my life. Hypnosis is a fantastic way to deal with issues your sub-conscious is worrying about and throughout the whole process, I knew I was in control but was in a safe place to deal with my issues. I can’t thank Anne enough for her help in letting me get my life back on track."
