Why Choose Counselling With Stephanie?
Is it ok to reach out for support?
Absolutely! The first step is to admit to yourself that you could benefit from sharing your thoughts and feelings in a safe, non judgemental space. Once you have articulated your worries you will most likely feel relief. You should not have to suffer alone.
What is a counselling session like?
Counselling sessions with Stephanie are relaxed and welcoming. The most important thing is for you to feel comfortable and heard. The therapeutic environment is an opportunity for you to speak freely, be honest and begin to understand what is going on for you.
How do I know if this is the type of counselling I require?
Stephanie is a pluralistic therapist, which simply means that she practices a range of different approaches. The great thing about this, is that sessions are bespoke and tailored to individual client needs. Whether that be talking about different coping tools to use in the present or discussing how the past has influenced and shaped the person you are.
Will Counselling Help Me to Heal?
Counselling by its very nature is conducive to healing, as giving yourself time every week to express your worries, fears and anxieties, simply allows you to process things more easily. You are the expert in your own life and therapy will help support and guide you towards making the right choices and connections, leading towards personal growth.

"Steph is by far the most calm and positive person I know and was the only person who could have helped me through my dark thoughts. After the session I was left feeling positive about the future and no longer fearful of the birth of my baby. During every wave I had Steph was in the back of my mind telling me that it was temporary and that it would end. I would recommend her calming influence to anyone. I would go back to Steph time and time again for all stages in life and I am very thankful to her for pulling me out of my cloud of fear."
"Thank you just doesn't do justice to the help and support that you have given me. After more than thirty years of headaches, jaw pain and unsightly blisters on my tongue I can't describe the joy of finally being able to be in control. Your research, methods and professionalism have left me with an arsenal of ways to contine to control my habit, but it is your warmth and encouragement that have given me the confidence to feel that I can keep it up. I can't thank you enough for changing my life."

"I am thrilled with the results of the hypnotherapy sessions that I undertook with Stephanie. I had suffered nightmares for more years than I care to remember and one day enough was enough. Stephanie made me feel at ease from the outset by explaining everything that would happen. The script was personalised and her voice soothing and calming. I can honestly say that it has been over six weeks since I have had a nightmare and I cannot express how grateful I am to Stephanie for her help with this."
EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique
I am a fully qualified EFT practitioner and a big advocate for the technique. It is an extremely effective way of providing relief from a plethora of issues from fear to pain management. It works by tapping certain parts of the face and hands and therefore changing the energy flow around the body's meridian points. It has been labelled acupuncture without the needles.
I feel like it goes hand in hand with hypnotherapy, as it provides a quick solution and enables a client to become "unstuck" and so hypnotherapy can commence with an enhanced level of relaxation achieved.
Listed below are some of the services that I offer as a trained Hypnotherapist.
The route to a natural and positive birth
Hypnobirthing is my speciality and I am passionate about giving you all the knowledge and tools you require for a calm and natural delivery. Together we will learn a deep level of relaxation through hypnosis and also breathing techniques, visualisation and other ways to educate you towards feeling in control and ready for the journey ahead.
I recommend a course of around four sessions, but each person is different and will require a bespoke service. I welcome mothers from three months pregnant onwards and also run early pregnancy and "Any moment now" sessions. Each one is priced at £60 per hour including the initial session which lasts 1.5 hours.
Treatments using Hypnotherapy
The Way Forward
Through the power of suggestion, you’ll enter a receptive state as you begin to focus on what you need to do in order to Stop Smoking. You’ll remain fully in control throughout the process of uncovering what’s holding you back.
Improve Self Esteem
Delve into the subconscious mind to shift the mental blocks stopping you from being able to improve self esteem. The hypnotic state makes it much easier to explore painful thoughts, feelings or memories and start working to overcome them.
Use the mind-body link to Lose Weight and see the results you have been seeking. You’ll enter a trance-like state that will give you heightened focus and concentration, making it easier to help you regain control.
Alleviate Stress and Anxiety
Our modern society encourages us to keep on and we can easily get weighed down with life's demands. Hypnotherapy offers you a way out by teaching you to take a step back and utilise your natural coping mechanisms. Whilst in hypnosis you will relax and discover your tension triggers and how to eliminate them.
Working with Children
Children are ideal for hypnotherapy, as they tend to be very suggestible, because their imaginations have no limitations. I will use different techniques such as storytelling, art and play to engage your child whilst hypnosis changes negative thought processes. This is a great way to alleviate exam nerves, boost self-confidence or ease fears and anxieties.
Overcome Fears and Phobias
Living with a fear of heights or having a phobia of spiders can be completely debilitating. Free yourself from these mental restraints by engaging in hypnosis to change negative pathways and get to the real route of the problem enabling you to live the life you choose.
As science continues to prove that there is a strong link between the mind and the body, we begin to see that pain is not only felt physically but also mentally. Hypnotherapy can really help control and manage pain by engaging with the subconscious mind.
Are you feeling demotivated and unsure about which pathway to choose? Hypnotherapy can help get you back on track and give you the tools you require to restore your ambition and inject some fresh productivity into your life.
The longing to bring a new life into the world can be all consuming and quickly take over completely. Infertility can be extremely stressful on you and your partner. Hypnotherapy helps by taking away this tension and equipping you with inner strength and making you feel more in control.
