Connecting with nature to reduce anxiety?

Hopefully you’ve had some time away over the summer months – space to reconnect with who you are and what you enjoy in your life.

Some moments to really appreciate where you are in your life.

If  you’ve struggled to achieve this on account of some thoughts, feelings or behaviours and reducing your ability to refresh and revitalise, maybe you would benefit from some support?

Is anxiety in the background?

My driving fear – time to fight back

I don’t drive. I would very much like to drive and I am learning. At least I am trying to learn. The thing is, I don’t like it. It terrifies me. I have never really talked about my fear of driving here before. I have talked about my anxiety before, but not the driving anxiety. […]

Positive psychology & wellbeing

stop-recycling-thoughts-dr-diva-verdun-1

There is a growing recognition of the impact our mental health has on our sense of well being.

The mind body connection!

How we think, feel and behave affects how our body functions.

If you are caught in a negative pattern of thinking, over time this will impact on your physical well being. This is why positive thought is so important in improving our outcome for good health.

Mental health affects our physical health.

Fine when you are in a good, positive place – what if your not!!

The first step of changing how we perform is recognition that we could do something different.

It may not feel like it, but our actions are our choices!?

Changing thoughts, feelings and actions can be very difficult to do, but by having a vision of how things could be different is the start of the process.

Support

to take small steps towards this new way of being is essential.

In my work as an Integrated therapist I help clients to identify their new intention and set goals using NLP, Psycho therapeutic coaching and possibly Hypnotherapy.

The power of the mind is amazing, use it to your full advantage.

Ever wanted to change something about yourself?

Improve a response, a habit, a way of interacting with others?

Known what you needed to do, but felt like the steps to make the change, particularly sustain change, were too difficult?

Hypnotherapy has the advantage of bypassing the conscious mind, allowing access to the subconscious. This enables resources you already have, but have lost sight of, to be accessed so that changes can be made more readily.

A little nervous about visiting a Hypnotherapist?

We enter hypnotic states naturally everyday, such as when we daydream, and this state can create a feeling of calmness and heightened awareness. In this state changes can be made with great affect.

By working with a Hypnotherapist this natural state can be tapped into so you feel more empowered too.

A boost to your confidence and self efficacy enables you to take the steps to use skills. This is the beginning of the change process.

What are you waiting for?

Do you want to make a change?

Change doesn’t happen overnight – it would be nice though wouldn’t it? So how do we change? For any change to happen we need to actually want it. How often do we say ‘I wish I could’ or ‘I really should’ but never make any progress towards it? It can be too easy to make […]

Wonders of hypnotherapy
