Hi, I’m Helen
I come from a Creative background with careers including Visual Merchandising, Photography Styling and Interior Design.
I’ve always been in touch with the feelings and emotions of those around me but at some point I lost sight of my own. This culminated with me one day saying ‘no more’ to a rather taxing job and demanding boss with questionable behaviour. My soul simply couldn’t take another moment. I wasn’t sleeping, I was waking up with high anxiety and living on my nerves for 9 hours a day. Walking away from this was the biggest, bravest, best thing I’ve ever done. I took back my power. However, my self-esteem had taken a battering over the 6 years of working within that environment and my confidence was somewhat diminished.
So, I sought help and found a wonderful Cognitive Hypnotherapist who supported me in recalibrating the outdated programming of my mind around my ability in the work place. I needed to connect back to what made my heart sing and not just with regards to work. Together, we worked to uncover my strengths, my core values and my beliefs. I now understand how I’ve always been able to provide ‘wise counsel’ to others; how I have the ability to understand what makes people tick, that honesty is one of my top values and how everything I do in life involves a little humour, plenty of kindness and considerable fairness.
Learning this inspired me to train with the Founder of Cognitive Hypnotherapy, Trevor Silvester, at The Quest Institute. I am now a Master Practitioner in Cognitive Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) & Coaching. I am qualified in a number of effective techniques including Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Wordweaving, which enables me to provide bespoke scripts for clients to encourage and bring about positive changes.
I am dedicated to continuing my professional development (CPD) so that I can offer the best service possible to my clients. I am a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNCH) and Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy Practitioner Association (QCHPA), abiding by their strict Code of Ethics. I am fully insured.
I have a holistic approach to therapy, offering simple, considered, down-to-earth sessions which everyone can relate to. I work very intuitively which enables me to inspire and empower you to make positive changes within your life, allowing you to move forward in the most positive and powerful way. Let’s have a chat about how I can help you take the first exciting steps to a new you.
