Do you want more of something (self-confidence, self-esteem, etc)?
Do you want less of something (weight, anxiety, stress, depression, fear, etc)?
Do you want to change something (a habit, an unwanted behaviour, an unwanted thought process, etc)?
You might be reading this because there is something you want to change and you’ve tried other things but you seem to be going round in circles. My name is Debbie and I’m a therapist. If you’re looking for a therapist to help you to get off the treadmill and achieve your goals, you’ve come to the right place.
THERAPY is an intimate and private way of resolving a problem at source. Whilst the first few times we do something (such as smoking or using food to change how we feel), we are doing it consciously (we are aware we are doing it), at some point it will become an unconscious action or behaviour – it becomes automatic and we do it without thinking about it. Hypnotherapy works with the unconscious mind to generate a more effective way of responding to particular situations or emotions. For example, if a client eats to change how they feel after a stressful day at work, hypnotherapy works at eliminating or, at the very least, reducing the client’s stress, as well as the stress triggers so that they don’t have the same pull as they did.
Effective therapists ensure that their knowledge and skills are kept up to date and that they have enough tools in their toolbox to help their clients. Being able to evidence extra training is also a requirement of all governing bodies, as part of their Code of Ethics.
In this section, qualified therapists will find details of training courses which contain the most up to date knowledge in the field so that they can help their clients more effectively.
CLINICAL SUPERVISION is about reflection and is a requirement for all therapists as part of their Code of Ethics. Without reflection, a therapist is much more likely to be at risk of burn out. Clinical Supervision requires a balance between three different tasks:
- To support and encourage therapists engaged in emotionally demanding tasks;
- To ensure that they know how to do what is expected of them;
- To uphold agreed standards and to support the supervisee to work towards them.

“I contacted Debbie because I was 4 stone overweight. I’m over the moon to say I am now 4 stone lighter, and I have so much more confidence, my knees no longer hurt, and I’ve saved a fortune by not buying takeaways three or four times a week. I learned that reducing my weight didn’t involve depriving myself and I also learned that I used food to change how I felt. Debbie taught me techniques to stop overeating and to find more effective ways to change how I felt.”
