We all have our screw ups. Anything can change. That's what I do. I help you become the most free version of yourself. My approach is incredibly effective, requiring only 2-3 sessions for adults, and 3-4 sessions for kids.
A course of therapy is typically 3-4 sessions for a child (compared to 2-3 for an adult). Most of the groundwork is done in the first session (which generally lasts around an 45 minutes but they are not timed). Sometimes I will give your child a custom MP3 recording to listen to in between sessions. This contains special language, based on the science of the brain, to help accelerate the changes we started while we talked.
The second session happens 2 weeks later and is a critical catch up session to review the previous 2 weeks. It is typically shorter, taking around half an hour. This may be a surprise for some but my process is solution focussed. It's not really a talking therapy. We will review evidence of change over the last 2 weeks. I will give the child a new tasks to help them keep focussed on change. As we learn by doing, not by thinking, this time is deliberately built in to help your child experience changes. This is hard for an adult, and a lot more difficult for your child. We may need you to point out some of the differences you notice. Please be aware that no matter how good I am, you will not see months or even years of issues disappear within 2 weeks! I like to think of this gap between the first and second session as a sneak preview of what may be possible.
By the third session, 4 weeks after the second, your child is usually comfortable talking with me and more aware of some of the changes they will experience. We can now do some more work, dealing with anything that is still getting in the way of their progress.
The fourth session, if needed, happens at least 4 weeks after the second. Many clients don't need their fourth session, but even if not used, it remains as a safety net for any time they need it in the future.
A single session costs £100. I have a special offer where you buy a complete block of therapy and get 4 sessions for the price of 3, so £300** for a full course of therapy (up to 4 sessions)
**Prices are in GBP (British Pounds). International clients will be invoiced through Paypal and that will handle the conversion rates
I don't need to know your child's whole life story. I don't need them to have insight into where their problems come from. I am a problem solver. I am going to be working with my knowledge of neuroscience and the issues they tell be they are struggling with, to find the thing that is switching off their brain. I am then going to be working with them during the session to reprogramme their brain. I need them to interact with me but I don't need them to be particularly vocal or insightful.
The trickiest part of this process is the bit between sessions. You might find you notice more changes than your child does. Feel free to let me know when this is the case!

I have a Masters in Psychology and trained as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist at the Quest Institute (Check out the research here that shows Cognitive Hypnotherapy effectiveness is greater for the treatment of anxiety and depression than other talk therapies such as CBT used within the NHS (71% compared to 42%): Reseach on Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy).
I do not use a single approach. I am mainly a problem solver. I deal with what you tell me, and guide you to make the changes necessary so you are free to be whoever you want to be, without needing to come and see me constantly to stay on track. During the session you will be fully engaged and actively involved in reprogramming your brain. I don't believe we can think our way past our problems. The cognitive, thinking part of your brain is only engaged for at most 10% of the time. So I work with the automatic and reactionary part - the subconscious. That's why you need me. I guide you to change you.
