Counsellor & Hypnotherapist in Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch in Dorset.
Thank you for visiting my website. I'm Louise and I work as a Counsellor and Hypnotherapist in Bournemouth, and within easy access to Poole & Christchurch in Dorset.
"I just wanted to say thank you for the help you've given me over the past couple of months, I found it really helpful and as I always said being able to air things in a safe environment has given me the confidence to apply things in my day to day life."
Counselling can support anyone who is experiencing emotional difficulties or psychological turmoil. It may be that your usual ways of coping with adversity are not working and you would like to seek alternative, more effective ways of behaving or responding, you might already know what is wrong in your life or simply feel that something isn't right. As your Counsellor I will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours related to your life experiences, unravel them, make sense of them all and then process them in a safe and confidential environment.
As your Counsellor our therapeutic relationship will be built on empathy, trust and respect. It is by offering these conditions that counselling can create a space for you to feel comfortable enough to express your deepest thoughts and feelings and not be or feel judged; a feeling that some people have never experienced before in their life. Through self-expression and exploration you and I, as your Counsellor, can work through some of the issues that have caused you difficulties and suffering in the past and you can begin to live a more harmonious and balanced life in the present and future. The counselling relationship and process is unique, and as your Counsellor I aim to make it as insightful and empowering for you as possible.
Some of the issues counselling can help you with are:
I offer individuals a 50 minute no obligation initial consultation, for a reduced rate of £25.
It’s an opportunity to come along and meet me, discuss your needs and goals of therapy and decide whether you feel I am the Counsellor for you and if you would like to work with me.
I do not offer couples counselling.
Hypnotherapy used alone or combined with counselling and analytical techniques can be extremely beneficial and improve certain psychological and physical complaints permanently, especially to stop smoking and fears and phobias. Being in a state of hypnosis allows you to be in a wonderful deep state of relaxation; a similar feeling to just before waking or falling asleep, although still aware and in control. The beauty of hypnotherapy is that when we are deeply relaxed, in a hypnotic state, we can bypass the conscious mind and access the subconscious. Whilst under hypnosis the subconscious mind becomes open and far more receptive to suggestion, reprogramming and positive change with long lasting emotional and behavioural results.
Hypnotherapy can be phenomenally successful where other forms of therapeutic intervention fail, this is because hypnotherapy deals directly with the subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind acts as a huge store for all our memories, knowledge, understanding and wisdom as well as the physical and emotional responses we attached to them at the time. Every time we find ourselves in the same or similar situation, to a previously stored memory, our automatic response is to behave and respond in the same way as we did the first time we experienced it.
Some of the issues hypnotherapy can help you with are:
“Happiness is found when we stop comparing ourselves to other people."
My counselling and hypnotherapy practice is in Bournemouth and within easy reach of Poole and Christchurch in Dorset too.
