Helping you to have the life you want
There comes a time when we need some help from a certified professional to help cope with many of life’s challenges. I’m a qualified and certified Hypnotherapist working from my private practice in Brentwood, Essex and also online.
I offer Neuro-Linguistic Programming therapy (NLP) as well as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in addition to Hypnotherapy.
I'd love you help you own your journey toward living the life you want.
I specialise in Weight Management working mostly with The Virtual Gastric Band Plan, Confidence & Anxiety & Past Life Regression & Relaxation.
These are all areas that are dear to me and that I'm passionate about due to my own personal experiences but also what I know has helped so many of my clients.
I'm proud to have been featured in the national magazine 'My Weekly' in December 2018 and local press in September 2018 with my clients success with The Virtual Gastric Band Plan.
"Honestly, I didn’t really believe it when Lisa told me that other clients had said that they had completely stopped eating biscuits and snacks. Or at best, I thought they had lots of will power (I don’t) and had really committed themselves to the plan.
But I have experienced exactly the same myself"
"I have found myself again"
"I've felt much calmer and less anxious"
"For me, there was an almost immediate impact. I became mindful of what and when I was eating from the very next day. I started to listen to my body and ate when i was actually hungry – a sensation that I now realise I hadn’t felt very often as I have always been a constant grazer"
"You have given me a different outlook on life and I feel I can normalise life more. Thank you for everything and will use your services in the future"
"I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone hoping to make a change in any aspect of their life. She is both warm and professional"
A Bit About Hypnotherapy
How does hypnotherapy work?
Hypnosis is simply a form of deep relaxation. When our minds and bodies relax, the conscious mind, the analytical mind is distracted and we can gain direct access to the unconscious mind. Communication with the unconscious works best in the medium of images, dreams and metaphors. Hypnotherapy uses imagery and indirect suggestions via metaphors to bring about the changes you want.
Does hypnosis work for everyone?
Hypnosis is quite an individual experience. Some people may go into a deeper trance more easily than others. Some will experience light trance. For your hypnotherapy to work, a deep trance is not necessary, you don’t have to feel like you’re asleep. Each time you practice hypnosis, however, as you become accustomed to the process, you may drift a little deeper into relaxation.
I’m not sure anyone could hypnotise me, can they?
All hypnosis is actually self-hypnosis, so no, nobody can hypnotise you but yourself. If you don’t want to be hypnostised, you won’t be. Don’t expect to feel that you’re in a deep sleep, you probably won’t feel like this until you want to. Remember you’re in control and the results are your results.
Who shouldn’t use hypnosis?
Those suffering from medical conditions such as epilepsy or those with psychiatric conditions (for example, psychosis, personality disorder, schizophrenia, bipolar, hysteria) should not engage in hypnotherapy. People with life-threatening diseases should consult their GP/doctor before using hypnotherapy. Anyone who is unsure about whether hypnotherapy would suit their issue/medication can be put at ease by consulting their GP/doctor.
Can I get stuck in a trance?
No, absolutely not. You are in control at all times, as such you control not only how deep your trance state, but also when you want to come out of trance. Nobody can force you into a trance or make you stay there, that’s impossible.
I’ve tried hypnosis before and I just couldn’t relax
Relaxation is actually not necessary, the suggestions will enter your unconscious mind whether your muscles in your body relax or not! The hypnosis is, however more beneficial if you can learn to relax.
What qualifications do you have?
I'm a certified Clinical and Transpersonal Hypnotherapist accredited by The General Hypnotherapy Register. I'm also a certified Master Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner and carry a Cognitive Behavioual Therapy Diploma.
I sometimes combine therapies depending on what's best for the client.
