How do I combine different therapies?

If the person has a problem they want to deal with, I use the main 3 talking therapies: cognitive behavioural therapy; hypnotherapy and life coaching. With CBT I can understand and help you modify the erroneous thought patterns and issues you might have.  Using hypnotherapy, I can delve deeper into the subconscious, if needed, understanding and uncovering the root of the problem. Both CBT and hypnotherapy are commonly used talking therapies that combined present an extremely effective way to deal with issues and problems.
By adding life coaching to these two therapies I can help you provide a plan of action on how to deal with the problems and achieve results. I use astrology as a way to understand the patterns and influences in your life.

What makes it so effective?

As I am a multidimensional therapist and coach, I can see, understand and explain the big picture. In many cases, someone who only does one therapy is limited to the restrictions of the same therapy. In case they can recommend you to another specialist, the other specialist will not be able to know the full details of each individual. Of course, if there are therapies or areas that I am not aware of, I’ll recommend you to another professional. Can be a GP, personal trainer, physiotherapist, nutritionist etc.

What happens in a hypnotherapy session?

There is an initial assessment where I will ask you some questions. According to the answers, we will then start the session. All you need to do is relax and follow my voice. You will be in a profoundly relaxed state yet aware of everything. In that state, you are more susceptible to POSITIVE affirmations. Hypnotherapy can be provide a quicker resolution of some situations that with other therapies could take longer. Be aware that each case is individual.

How long does a session last?

My sessions last 1 hour, if in-person,, which includes some time to discuss the matter at hand. I have been doing online sessions for over 3 years in the UK and overseas. When I do online sessions they can last up to 75 minutes.

Is it confidential?

It is 100% confidential!  As a qualified multi-therapist, I have a very strict code of ethics, where no information is shared outside of a session with anyone. Please note that each session is individual. I will not allow another person to be in the session.

People only connect with a therapist because they need to. The 3 main therapies I provide are mainly put into place to help you to heal; reach a solution and empower you! 

Nobody has contacted me just out of sheer curiosity unless it is for an astrology appointment.
Some people are curious to understand what that mysterious art is all about… 
What people don’t know is that kings and rulers have been using astrology as a tool from ancient times right up to today.

If you feel lost, if you need guidance or if you want to know more about your past, present and future situation, astrology can certainly help. Astrology can help discover parts of you that you might not be aware of. It can give you in-depth knowledge from areas of your life like work; career; relationships with parents; love relationships; belief system; inner perceptions; money; childhood; health, etc.
