Achieving a Healthy Work-Life Balance
Achieving a healthy work-life balance bridging personal, professional and family roles and responsibilities is central to individual wellbeing. With variability in work patterns becoming the norm, flexible working, home offices, online meetings, and conference calls have become common place. The distinction between personal and professional wellbeing and performance is dissolving. As a Chartered Occupational Psychologist I recognise that the demands of work have an impact on our private lives, just as our health and personal wellbeing impact our performance at work.
Job roles are more flexible, careers are no longer linear, and learning is lifelong. Our roles overlap, we can be simultaneously employees, bosses, owners, parents, family members, volunteers, carers and senior citizens ever developing our life long capacities as: successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors, as our children and young people now learn in school as they prepare for their futures.
Into every situation, relationship and circumstance we bring our own unique set of talents, beliefs, expectations, experiences, traumas, fears, motivators, perspectives, preferences, personality and purpose. In modern day life, workplace and personal wellbeing, health, development, potential, resilience, motivation and performance are mutually inclusive, and our development as individuals must reflect this to achieve the greatest positive impact.

*Individual responses to hypnotherapy will vary, and results cannot be guaranteed. Results will vary from person to person.
What Happens during Hypnosis?
Using hypnosis, a deep level of relaxation can be achieved in which our mind is more open to receiving positive suggestions, providing effective ways to help us achieve our desired outcomes, and eliminate unhelpful beliefs that hold us back.
(adapted from 'Doctor: What's the Alternative, by H Jones, credit: hypnosis.me.uk)
FREE Consultation A free 20 minute telephone consultation is available to clarify the suitability of therapy to meet your goals. Should you decide to proceed, this can be followed by your first therapy session at that time or a later date.
Depending upon the issue, some clients achieve their desired outcome in 1-4 sessions, while some issues may require more, typically 5-10 sessions. Many clients find it beneficial to maintain results by returning every 4 weeks or so. I work in partnership with clients to ensure sessions are tailored to the specific needs of each individual.
**It would not be realistic for me to make guarantees with hypnotherapy and other therapies. Results vary from individual to individual. Each client is unique and responds accordingly and will achieve the outcome in their own way with collaboration from me. Though I can offer an evidence base for the efficacy of interventions used in this field, I cannot guarantee a client of success or of achieving absolutely what they wish, though I aim to do so as best I can.
When you shouldn't use hypnotherapy
Do not use hypnotherapy if you have psychosis or certain types of personality disorder, as it could make your condition worse.
Check with a GP first if you've got a personality disorder.
