I offer treatments for Hypnobirthing, Fertility and Weight Loss, as well as therapy and life coaching. I work from my private home practice, over the phone, or Skype. If you would like to move forward with a treatment, or have questions, get in touch with me today.

Hypnobirthing

I have supported over 100 couples, usually in private classes, in the comfortable setting of my home. We work for four, three or two sessions sessions, depending on the package chosen.

A relaxing and empowering way to give birth

I have supported over 100 couples, usually in private classes, in the comfortable setting of my home.

Teaching Hypnobirthing to women and couples is teaching them the skills to have a relaxed and happy birthing experience. Sessions focus on how your body works and changes during birth and eliminating any fears and concerns you may have.

I managed to have a calm and natural birth and even the midwife was shocked when I kept on turning down any pain relief.

How the sessions work

We work for four, three or two sessions, totaling around 10, 8 or 5 hours of work, with additional sessions always available.

We work on -

  • Breathing methods for during labour and birth
  • Relaxation - for before, during and after your birth - in fact, a life-time skill
  • How your body works during birth – and how best to support this
  • Use of visualisation to support the above
  • Eliminating fears and concerns
  • Giving your birth companion/s supporting roles

It is a very inclusive course as we also look at use of different positions for birth and relaxation,nutrition, other alternative methods available to support you.

Should your baby be in a breech position, hypnosis is very effective for encouraging him/her to turn to a vertex position ( I have supported 8 mums in achieving this – testimonial), encouraging a baby who is reluctant to put in an appearance even though due date has arrived.

When working with individual couples, we are not tied to specific times/days but can build inflexibility to suit work pattern.

Fertility

The sessions can be used with women who are struggling to conceive – without any obvious reason. It can also be used in support of those undertaking a course of IVF.

Finding it difficult to conceive? I can help.

This work is designed to support women – and their partners, where felt appropriate, through issues of undiagnosed infertility. Things can become very ‘medicalised’ – the aim is to introduce techniques which allow mums to make the process much more personalised. The sessions can be used with women who are struggling to conceive and in support of those undertaking a course of IVF.

The techniques that she gave me helped each time I had to go to see a doctor – I was able to go in feeling that I could soon be joining my friends rather than certain that I wouldn’t.

How the sessions work

Initial session

Intake involving a history of fertility issues. First relaxation under hypnosis session, including stress relief.  CD to take home.

Subsequent sessions

These include visualisation to allow women to feel that they have some degree of control over conception.

Techniques for relaxation during medical appointments

  • Setting a blueprint – focusing on woman’s goals – CD for use at home
  • I am happy to provide a recording specifically for IVF treatments

Counselling & Hypnotherapy

We work on a sessional basis – usually arranging four appointments, at the end of which we build in a review of progress made and future needs.

Counselling and Hypnotherapy for a number of issues

I am basically a person centred counsellor. This means that we work with what you bring, at a pace that suits you, having established a trusting relationship. However, through an on-going program of Professional Development, I have many strategies and techniques that can be used to support you. Our work can be either short or long term, with you having control of this.

Dee has supported me so much through the counselling and hypnotherapy and my life is changing so much for the better

I am also trained in the use of:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Solution Based Therapy and Gestalt work, Mindfulness.

As a Life Coach and Hypnotherapist, we are also able to include work in these areas if it is felt appropriate.

Weight loss

Using hypnosis for weight loss is proving very popular, safe and effective with gastric band work. I use it as part of an inclusive programme of education around food and your attitude towards eating.

An easy, safe and enjoyable programme of weight loss

Gastric Band Hypnosis

Using hypnosis for weight loss is proving very popular, safe and effective with gastric band work. I use it as part of an inclusive programme of education around food and your attitude towards eating.

We are setting new patterns of eating for life, not just a short term blast of weight loss – where the weight may go off, but more often than not, goes back on again.

the weight began to drop off, slowly but consistently.  I knew I could do it, having failed with fad ‘diets’ in the past. I feel good about myself, have bought clothes that show off my new body.
