Working together we will identify and challenge negative thoughts that may be fuelling depression and create positive patterns.
I feel ten feet tall and I'm normally 5'7 so I'm feeling great!
My teenage son is a different person! After the first session I immediately noticed an improvement in his ability to control his feelings and manage his anger.
After each session I see things a lot brighter. I really do see things differently. Even things like colours are more vibrant.
If you are struggling with depression then you may feel an overwhelming sense of helplessness or hopelessness. Together we will target your 'cognitive distortions' and embed the resources to create new and more effective patterns of thinking.
We identify what needs to change, why and look at things from a different perspective.
We actually change how you process and respond to what's going on around and within you.
Building on new patterns of behaviour we give you the tools to manage things on your own.
My name's Tom and I'm a mindset mentor and hypnotherapist. We'll usually get things started with a fee-free chat where we can get to know each other and whether we think we're a good fit!Start for Free
Then over about 3 weeks I'll use a range of proven, drug-free approaches to help you rapidly access and reprogram conscious and subconscious thinking that may be driving this pattern.
These include dialogue, writing, drawing, storytelling, mindset mentoring and remedial hypnosis (or hypnotherapy). Many of these techniques have been used in healing for thousands of years. Today they’re also used to create behavioural change and promote mental wellbeing in business, coaching, counselling, education, health & fitness, personal growth, professional development, relationships, sport and more.
We will also look at your holistic health and wellbeing and the impact of things like diet, sleep, movement, nature and relationships on your ability to process the world around you and your place in it.
Hypnotherapy can help you to change the negative thinking patterns that fuel depression by accessing the subconscious mind and reframing negative beliefs, promoting positive thoughts and behaviours and fostering a sense of control and empowerment over your thinking processes.
Through suggestions and visualisations, hypnotherapy aims to challenge and replace negative thought patterns with more realistic and positive ones, facilitating a shift in mindset and promoting emotional well-being. It can also help you to develop coping strategies and build resilience, ultimately contributing to alleviating symptoms of depression.
Before you choose to work with me and we embark on your Happy Self Project together, it's important that you read, understand and agree with these simple principles of practice:
Everything we discuss is confidential, unless I believe that someone may be in danger or if we agree that someone else needs to be involved.
This is not about spending hours trying to make sense of your past — it’s about creating the future you want. We combine previous experiences with realistic future goals to highlight how you can overcome challenges, make better decisions and utilise your resources to create change, fast.
I do not magically 'fix' you or give you the answers — all that's going to come from you! I simply guide you through a highly personalised process, tailored to your specific needs, that requires your honesty, commitment, input and action.
I am not here to help you 'feel' better. I am here to help you 'do' better (and by taking action you will be able to make yourself feel better)! The process of doing better can bring up things that you find confronting and unpleasant emotions or memories may surface. But this is part of the process, as only by identifying them can we truly target them.
Everyone is different, has different needs and thinks differently from one day to the next, so we take an adaptable approach with wriggle room for the unexpected! There may be tears, there is usually laughter and lots of other emotions in between.
We will establish what your true challenges are, their triggers and the impact on your life. Your processing, filtering and response patterns will be challenged and assessed.
We embed the courage, resources and power that enable you to continue to make choices that create long-lasting change, disrupt negative thinking and make decisions with confidence.
We establish what’s important to you — your sense of purpose or your ‘north star’ — and this becomes the platform from which you can process thoughts, filter feelings, amplify your strengths, add value and respond to the world around you in a new and positive way.
