You feel overwhelm
Your sleep is disturbed
You are irritable
Excessive thoughts that spiral

You feel tired and have poor concentration.
These are just some of the symptoms of anxiety however, after your first session with me you will feel relaxed, have tools to put you in control and you will feel more confident and hopeful about your future. You will be able to think more clearly, sleep better and enjoy better health and improve your relationships with others too.
You might even have been told that you were born anxious or that you get it from your mother, father or your aunt, but you haven't. Your anxiety has been learned over time to help you cope or avoid things. And because it has been learned, it can be unlearned. All you need is a commitment to make changes to the way you usually do react.
There are many different ways people experience anxiety such as general anxiety disorder, panic attacks, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder and specific fears or phobias. Anxiety levels can go from worry to a feeling of panic.
Stress and anxiety is a natural response which helps us cope in a short term emergency, however, problems occur when your stress response is going off all the time. The results of excessive stress can lead to migraines, skin complaints, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic pain and other anxiety disorders.
The stress response can have a profound effect on everyday life and so this is where i can help you gain back control. To speak to me about your anxiety book for a free consultation with me today.

Lose Weight and Feel Happier and Healthier
I offer two weight loss plans which are Slim Via Hypnosis and Hypnoband.
You struggle to lose weight and keep it off or even get started in the first place.
You have tried all the diets and slimming plans out there, lose a little bit of weight then put it back on again.
You find yourself constantly snacking, feeling guilty about eating a chocolate bar or biscuit or feeling down because the amount of weight you have to lose seems just too much.
If this sounds like you then maybe hypnosis is the right approach for you. I offer a five session package to help you develop the right mindset to reach your goals. We work together looking at why, where and when you eat as well as limiting believes and old stories that may be holding you back.
Over the weeks that you are with me you will begin to lose weight or inches as long as you do your homework and listen to the recordings that i give you which consolidate our sessions.
People often wonder why i offer a weight loss package.
I have found that people who book a complete package are more likely to succeed with their weight loss goals rather than booking just one or two sessions. This is an investment in your wellbeing and future health.

This may seem a lot of money but many people i see smoke between 10-20 cigarettes a day. So if an average pack of cigarettes costs around £10.00 and you smoke at least 10 a day. You would spend on average £40 per week. That's £160 per month and a massive £1,900 per year. You would also feel better, smell better and look better too. Especially at work, meeting people and socialising. You would easily recoup the cost of the therapy and instead of burning the money, you could go on holiday, save or buy something special for yourself.
Manage Chronic Pain and Live Life to the Fullest
Chronic pain comes in many forms and is usually caused by an injury or condition such as...
*Chronic fatigue syndrome
I had suffered from sciatica for many years and so the pain became a normal part of my life. However, a couple of years ago i was a volunteer for the OldPain2Go methodology and i was surprised at how much more energetic and alive i felt when i was able to turn off the pain. I also didn't realise how sapping and limiting my sciatica had become. I am now trained as an OldPain2Go Practitioner and i can help you reassess the need for old, persistent, chronic pain.
Like me, you will already know that pain can affect every part of your life, but what would it feel like to reduce or switch off that old pain?
Let me explain a bit about Steven Blakes OldPain2Go Methodology.
Pain is a message from the brain which lets us know that something is wrong or injured. After a period of healing the pain naturally reduces and goes as the body heals. But sometimes the pain message can remain on the 'on' position long after an injury has healed causing us to have persistent, chronic pain. OldPain2Go can help with conditions such as Arthritis, Sciatica, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and joint pain.
Our body is a miraculous creation so much so that if we injure ourselves our brain alerts us to the problem by giving us pain. This is so that we know something is wrong. Have you ever sliced bread and accidently cut yourself? Or been too close to a heat source such as a flame? Or lifted something far too heavy and pulled a muscle in your back? If you have then you would have immediately been alerted to the danger so that you could take appropriate action. Appropriate action maybe putting your hand under a cold tap, removing yourself from danger or seeing a medical practitioner.
After a period of time the body heals and the discomfort or pain messages become less and less. This is the normal process of how the body heals. However, sometimes pain messages can become trapped and the brain may keep sending the pain message when there is no need to.
The OldPain2Go Methodology uses a process called Brain Bargaining where i can help you to reassess the need for old pain messages so that you can greatly reduce or let go of it. There is no hypnosis or trance involved, just me talking to you. And you don't have to believe the process will work, you just need to Want to be pain free and not have more need to keep pain than to lose it.
You can visit the link below to find out more about OldPain2Go.
Treatment outcomes and number of sessions vary from person to person. Usually 1-2 sessions are all that is needed.
If you are ready to let go of old pain then call me to find out more and book your session. You must have already seen a medical professional before commencing this therapy.
The cost of OldPain2Go is £100 for a 90 minute session.
Subsequent session if needed is £70
What Reiki Can Do
Reiki works with the energetic, physical and emotional aspects of the individual to address imbalances on all levels.
Reasons you may want to experience a Reiki session:
*Clearing emotional blocks
*Tension and anxiety
*Issues with life
How is Reiki different from other therapies?
Reiki is holistic in its approach and works with not only the symptoms an individual experiences but the root cause of the imbalance as well.
How do I know this is right for me?
People who have a nagging feeling that something in their life or body mind is out of balance or they feel like they are struggling within themselves and their environment usually find Reiki at the perfect time for them. The fact that you are reading this could be the sign that your body mind is ready to begin healing and experience growth.
What to Expect During a Reiki Session
You will complete a confidential client history form that outlines the areas in your body and life that you would like the session to focus on. This will also help me to monitor your progress from session to session. Once you have asked any questions you have, you will lie fully clothed on a therapy table and relax. I will then place my hands above your body over various parts in a sequential method. At the end of the session, you can discuss any questions you may have with the practitioner.
What to Expect After a Reiki Session
People experience different things during a Reiki session but the most usual experience is feeling calm and relaxed. Some people report that they felt the Reiki as a tingling sensation or heat or that they saw colours during a session. Others do not experience anything in particular.
Sometimes there is an emotional release and after a session some people experience a healing reaction such as flu-like symptoms or a headache.
Sessions lengths vary from person to person and is your personal choice.
The cost of Reiki is £45 per session
I teach the Katherine Graves hypnobirthing course with antenatal which is taught over 4 days, lasting approximately 3 hours each day. The reason i teach it this way is because there is a lot of information to get through and the brain will only retain a tiny amount from a full day course or full weekend course, about 30% actually. By learning over 4 short days you will remember more and also have the benefit of hypnosis relaxations to reinforce confidence and calmness in yourself and your ability as parents. As well as antenatal education, you will learn Self-Hypnosis, visualisation and relaxation techniques as well as how to use your breath to assist you in the first and second stage of labour. You will also learn about the physiology of birth, freeze, fight and flight response, the hormones of pregnancy and the birth partners role. Plus lots more! Birth partners or a friend are welcome to come along too. There is a small comfort break of 20 minutes for rest and refreshments.

* The Katherine Graves Hypnobirthing book
* Relaxation mp3 downloads
