Positive Psychology Therapy & Coaching

Positive Psychotherapy

Fundamental to positive psychotherapy is the tenet that human beings are unique. The discipline focuses on identifying and utilising the individual's positive resources, such as their character strengths, emotions,  values and passions.  Alongside the development of self-compassion, these resources serve as tools to create a more personally fulfilling life and the ability to deal with challenges from the past, present and future. 

Coaching​​​

Positive psychology coaching seeks to utilise the strengths, skills and resources of the client in the achievement of the goals and ambitions that they set themselves. 

This form of coaching holds the central belief that the individual is the expert on themselves.  The role of the coach is to facilitate the client's exploration of their own resources in order that they ascertain the  options and solutions that are best for them.

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a form of psychological therapy that uses hypnosis as a tool. Hypnosis is a very natural state that we enter into every day when we become absorbed in something. Daydream or losing a sense of time during an activity is a form of hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy can help tackle many issues such as anxiety, phobias, unwanted habits and performance issues.

My one-to-one practice was previously known as Billericay Hypnotherapy.  The name changed in order to reflect the more bespoke and eclectic approach that I take when working with clients. 
Meditation & Mindfulness
Meditation is the process of seeking to maintain attention on a focal point.

A focal point may be any single stimulus. For example, it may be a physical feeling such as the breath, word-based such as a mantra or affirmation, cognitive such as an idea or a guided inner journey, or it may be an object that we have in front of us.

Mindfulness is a form of meditation that uses the present moment as the focal point.

Meditation is often wrongly thought of as 'emptying the mind'. This may mean that people who would most benefit from meditation might avoid it because they feel that their minds are too busy to acheive this. In fact we don't seek to empty our mind, but rather to gradually develop the skill of being able to choose where we put our focus. This allows us to be less involved with or drawn in by negative or anxious thoughts.

Meditation has many evidenced-based benefits backed up through scientific research. Some of those include:

·       Stress reduction
·       Anxiety reduction
·       Better emotional health & wellbeing
·       Increased optimism
·       Increased focus
·       Improved sleep
·       Increased ability to deal with pain
The Positive In Mind Meditation and Wellbeing classes seek to develop both your meditation skills and your understanding of how to achieve better wellbeing and happiness.


 NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming).

NLP is the study of subjective experience. It looks at how the individual sees their world in order to ascertain whether their perceptions are useful or problematic. As there is a strong connection between thoughts, emotions and behaviour, a change in perception can impact greatly on an individual's emotions and behaviour.

Through its language patterns and techniques, NLP can bring about lasting change through identifying and  creating options, alternatives and choice. 

​IEMT (Integral Eye Movement Therapy)

IEMT is a rapid change work technique that is useful in issues where there is a learned emotional response to a stimulus. This may include specific anxiety responses, fears and phobias.
