My Approach

How many of these myths do you believe about change?

  • Change involves reliving lots of past events and talking a lot about your childhood.
  • Change is a long and drawn out process.
  • Change involves feeling lots of unpleasant negative emotions.
  • Change is difficult and hard to achieve.

Most, if not all, of my clients report enjoying sessions and change usually happens quicker and easier than people expect.

What I Have Found to Be Most Helpful:

- An educational approach that is engaging and easy to understand.

- Sessions are conducted in a positive, upbeat mood because we learn better when we are feeling good rather than bad. 

- The emphasis is always on the present moment and how you want your life to be now and going forward.

- Sessions are very practical and are aimed at giving you tools and understandings that you can take away and easily apply.

Common Questions

What happens in a session?

A typical session involves:

1) Discovery - learning about your specific situation. I use specific focusing questions to identify the key elements of the issue. 

2) Discussion and guided exercises - discussions about how the mind and emotions work and exercises aimed at helping you to discover how to work with your own mind to think or feel differently. This section of the session is very practical and interactive. 

3) Task setting - sessions may finish with some task setting for you to complete between the sessions.

What is a Mindset Coach?

A Mindset Coach is someone who coaches you to see something in a new way. Someone who helps you take on a different mindset in relation to something.

The way I look at human psychology is very hopeful. I do not believe that we get stuck because there is something inherently wrong with us, but because we don't have a way of making sense out of our experience that allows to move through it or beyond it.

My job as a Mindset Coach is to help you to find a new way of experiencing your situation, and the thoughts and feelings you are having, which allows you to learn and progress and move beyond where you currently are.

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnotic techniques to help someone make positive changes in their life.

Although I have done lots of hypnotherapy trainings and incorporate many principles from it into my work, like understanding how trance states facilitate change, you can breathe a sigh of relief as for most people I do not use hypnosis. Instead I use a conversational and educational approach, along with very honest conversations about how our thoughts and feelings work to help people to make life changes.

However, it is a tool that we have at our disposal should we need to use it.

If we do use hypnosis, it is not mind control. People undergoing hypnotic techniques don't usually report feeling out of control in anyway. People usually feel focused and relaxed.

How many sessions does it take?

This depends very much on how you engage, not just on my expertise. For some issues change involves a simple change in your mindset about a specific thing. For other issues a bigger lifestyle change may be needed that requires sustained effort, like changing a habitual breathing pattern.

As a result, it is hard to specify how many sessions a specific person will need. However, most people I usually work with for 4 to 8 sessions.

Most people experience a significant improvement after 2 sessions.         

Does it have to be face to face?

I see clients both face-to-face and online. Most of my work is done online and my experience is that online sessions are just as effective as sessions conducted in person.

How much do sessions cost?

Sessions are an investment in yourself. They are not counselling sessions or traditional therapy sessions. You are here to change. You are here to get a result. Our clear intention is that by the end of the sessions together, your life will be different. The issue you came in with will either be significantly improved, no longer present in your life, or you will be firmly on the learning curve to no longer having it.

A package of 4 sessions costs £495.
