Hypnotherapy & Parts Therapy

Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state of trance that we enter into naturally and normally all on our own on a daily basis.  It is a heightened  state of focused attention,  increased muscle

relaxation and suggestibility.  Many psycho-somatic illnesses and unresolved emotional issues relate to events, feelings and images that have been locked into the sub-conscious mind. Hypnosis is the key that unlocks the sub-conscious mind. 


Parts Therapy is a hypnotherapy process that allows clients to resolve inner - conflicts. When there is inner-conflict clients self-sabotage, procrastinate, amongst other things and do not reach their full potential. Many present with issues such as anxiety, depression, lack of motivation, addiction, anger and frustration.




Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a rapid change model for personal growth and  mental health. It can be used with individuals, families or organisational groups.  NLP works with processes and structures allowing the facilitator to work content free and allows the client to own the process and outcomes.

Bandler, Grinder and Pucelik in the mid seventies, followed by Dilts and Andreas developed a model that became know as NLP. It works on the neurology using language to change beliefs and behaviour. NLP patterns and  techniques bring about change quickly and eloquently.



Mental Space Psychology

The idea of space and our relationship to space has grown in popularity amongst social and cognitive scientists. We draw on Derk's Social Panorama and Clean Language - Clean Space  models in psychology to assist clients.  These models help clients understand how they relate space internally and how these relationships are used externally in a social context. By listening carefully to the clients metaphors related to space, helps to unlocks many psychological blocks for clients.

James Lawley, Penny Tompkins and Marian Way have extended the work started by David Grove that is known as Clean Language Clean Space. We utilise some of their  techniques to allow clients to discover the relationships they have to issues they want to deal with. 



Coaching & Mentoring

The Coaching process helps individuals and groups to establish strategic pathways and strategies that are aligned with clearly agreed and  defined goals. We help clients to use the Tree of Life, Balanced Wheel of Life or GROW models to flourish in life and business.


Mentoring is an important step in our Training programme. If you train with us you are then placed on a unique mentoring programme for 6 months where we walk the path with you. We will mentor you so that the skills you learnt in training can be applied in practice.  This will allow you to become competent and a force for good in the world.

Therapy Sessions
Our Approach

Our approach is client centred and outcome based. We facilitate our sessions from the client's frame of reference, language patterns, thinking styles and belief systems. The sessions are focused on getting the best results for  our clients rapidly as per their desired outcomes. Many clients need a single session, others may need two or three depending on their commitment to the process. We work from a loving and caring position, firmly believing that our clients are not broken , only stuck, and that they have all that is necessary inside of themselves to make the necessary changes.
