About Chloë

CroppedCJMNov20151I have been using guided visualisation and counselling skills to help people improve their sense of wellness since 2006. Qualifying in clinical hypnosis was the culmination of this, and hypnotherapy and related wellness techniques such as tapping (EFT) are now my main focus.

To this end, I also use my training as a counsellor and life coach to help you get clear on what you need in order to achieve a greater sense of well-being, and to succeed at the goals you desire. Putting a plan into place that will get you where you’re going, and that is realistic, is an important part of any change.

In much of my work, I teach skills and resources to help you in your day-to-day. This is based on my experiences teaching yoga and meditation since 2001, and my ever-deepening exploration of mindfulness and other practices to calm the mind and emotions.

I find EFT or tapping to be a great adjunct to this, and it’s something I often recommend, as well as providing online resources to help you practice this technique at home. It’s a wonderful way to unblock emotional issues and install postive new ways of responding to the world.

One of my particular focuses is on anxiety and stress – the modern plague. Almost everyone suffers from stress at some point in their life. And leaving stress to run amok can lead to deeper issues including anxiety and depression.

This is especially important as stress and anxiety are not just mental issues. They can affect your health and physical well-being, as well as your emotions and ability to think and enjoy life. My focus on wellness incorporates physical problems that are often triggered by stress and anxiety. Often, you may not think these are ‘mental’ problems, yet they can be improved through hypnotherapy.

I also focus on nutrition as an important aspect of both physical and mental well-being. What you eat affects not just your body, but your mind and emotions. Of course, changing your nutrition isn’t always a simple matter.

Many people comfort eat, making nutritional change emotionally distressing. This is another way in which linking an understanding of nutrition with techniques to improve your mood and emotions can be very effective.
