How can I help you?

These are just some of the more common problems I offer treatment for:

Anxious face icon

Anxiety

Are you feeling stuck in a rut with anxious thoughts and feelings? Have you tried many ways to overcome this condition? 

A great many people suffer from anxiety, unhelpful thinking about their future and worry an unusual amount. In the UK, mixed anxiety & depression is the most common mental disorder, with 7.8% of people meeting this criteria for diagnosis. Most therapists and medical practitioners put those who suffer panic attacks and anxiety into the same box and treat them  in the same way.

Through my own journey and experiences, I take an individualised and caring approach to helping clients overcome anxiety, panic attacks and stress. I am passionate about getting you to a place of confidence so you can learn how to live in the now instead of worrying what the future will hold. Don't worry you are not alone, even I used to suffer from anxiety!

Alcohol

Do you feel like you drink to much? Does your drinking affect other parts of your life? Do you want to learn how to master alcohol instead of it mastering you?

recent study in the US found that 1 in 7 of people had serious alcohol problems or "alcohol-use disorder". Attitudes towards alcohol have changed and binge drinking is becoming more common and accepted in our western culture. For many people, stopping drinking is a very tall order and they don’t necessarily want to stop drinking or be teetotal, but also they don’t know how to cut back.

I specialise in helping men and women who have struggled with their over consumption of alcohol to learn how to drink less. Through my own experiences and client interactions I have formulated a clear action plan to get you back on track and on with your life and feeling great!

Weight Loss

Have you tried diets without success? Are you exercising regularly yet still can't lose the weight? Is your weight starting to affect your self-image and confidence?

Your not the only one, a 2015 survey of over 2,000 UK adults found that two thirds were on a diet "most of the time" and "48% of Brits have tried to lose weight in the last year".  Do ask yourself is there another way than continual dieting too?

Instead of just reducing calories that you are likely to put on again, hypnotherapy help you tap in to why you unconsciously eat. If you are the sort of person who struggles to stop after a small piece of chocolate and feels compelled to finish the packet, I can help you understand why. I use a highly effective combination of NLP coaching & hypnotherapy to help you create healthy habits that lead to big changes in the way you feel about yourself and how you behave in relation to food.

Insomnia sleep icon

Insomnia

Do you suffer from sleepless nights and find it impossible to get to sleep without taking sleeping tablets? Are you sick and tired of filling your shopping basket up with Nytol or prescription medication? Do you want to explore natural alternatives?

London like New York, really is a 24 hour city which makes it very hard for the average Londoner to switch off and get a good nights sleep. Did you know as many as 16 million UK adults are suffering from sleepless nights and a third (31%) say they have insomnia.  Lack to sleep can have adverse effects on your health and can lead to a lack of concentration, a decrease in motivation and a reduction in your tolerance to stress.

I can help treat your insomnia and get to the root cause of what is keeping you awake at night.  I use a combination of hypnotherapy using visualisation methods within a tailored plan to help you get into a calm and relaxed state when you are setting off to bed. Imagine  waking up in the morning fresh, energetic and excited to begin you day.

Unhealthy Eating Habits

I ignored the problem, convinced myself that it wasn’t serious and this is how I am. Hypnotherapy I felt was much structured I had a specific issue I wanted to tackle and left with measurable tasks that I had to do each week.

Tansy is brilliant. Her voice is magical and very soothing. She makes sure you are left empowered with clear objectives and realistic achievable, measurable tasks you say you can accomplish. The focus always comes back to how you can implement the things you want to change.

I’m on a definite path to healthy eating and I was able to discover that my resistance and reluctance stemmed from the awful school dinners I was subjected to as a child! I had no idea! I use to always think that culturally we just didn’t have enough vegetables in our cooking, which of course isn’t the case.

Ginika E.

"hypnotherapy is something that can be done regularly and definitely helps me - Tansy is empathetic and is not judgemental"

"I had no real plan for tackling over drinking. If you have the motivation and desire deep inside, hypnotherapy can tap into that. You can’t be hypnotised or helped unless you want to be. I’d only read a few self help books to help with my drinking, but hypnotherapy is something that can be done regularly and definitely helps me. Tansy is empathetic and is not judgemental, she has a calm, friendly and has a encouraging nature. I’ve enjoyed working with her and feel inspired by her."

Julia T.

"Tansy went out of her way to provide supportive guidance, reflection, reassurance and validation for my efforts toward moderating alcohol use"

I’m a very private person and was nervous to share my challenges with Tansy, but she was so understanding and empathetic. I was amazed at our first session. I could hardly believe it when she created a customised spoken hypnosis designed for my specific set of values, future aspirations and desires on the spot within the session. She even added background music, recorded it and emailed it to me. It was a lovely way to begin what otherwise would have been an anxiety provoking day at my new home business while home schooling my three children. Within each subsequent session Tansy went out of her way to provide supportive guidance, reflection, reassurance and validation for my efforts toward moderating alcohol use. At each subsequent session, Tansy has created an additional custom hypnosis recording that has addressed my unique set of strengths, challenges and life goals. I listen to them every morning and the subconscious part of my mind really is accepting the suggestions made in the recordings. I know this because I have stuck to my limits successfully for the past two months and my business and sense of inner peace are growing

C.J.

It was as if a dark filter had been lifted off of my life and allowed me to finally stop believing and getting sucked in by these negative thoughts, ( I can ) begin a new chapter of my life

I came to Tansy with an issue about self confidence that was dictating my life to a point where I couldn’t even see myself being able to enter adult life properly. Tansy opened my eyes to so much knowledge about myself and about the harmful way I was thinking that after the first session I almost laughed to myself at how subjective my whole problem really was. I genuinely now see negative thoughts I have as they truly, objectively are: thoughts.

By the end of our sessions it was as if a dark filter had been lifted off of my life and allowed me to finally stop believing and getting sucked in by these negative thoughts about my appearance and begin a new chapter of my life. Tansy I honestly can’t thank you enough for how much you have done and how much our work over the sessions will continue to do for me as a person and I also hope that these words do your service even the slightest bit of justice because it would be impossible to fully replicate just how much this has done for me.

Insomnia

I found the action plan Tansy gave me was helpful & something i can work on. I found her visualisation very good and personal to me.

I have had counselling in the past that address issues through talking therapies that uncover childhood issues but this takes sometime to do so along with the drama. Hypnotherapy gets to the point of an issue at the beginning of the first sessions, addressing a single issue through practical visualizing and offers a robust action plan at the end that gives options to try out exercises to aid sleep which i found useful.

Sylvia W.

"Besides very effective hypnotherapy recordings, which have helped me calm down and sleep at night, Tansy has provided a range of useful tools (including reading material) and practical advice. As a result, I now feel better than I have in years: I feel much calmer and sleep so well at night."

I had tried CBT for my anxiety previously, but found I needed more to help me calm me down and to allow me to focus. Hypnotherapy doesn't need to be fluffy or strange: it's an amazing and a well-proven technique to help calm the body and mind.

I feel so fortunate that I found Tansy through one of her YouTube videos which targeted my problem (health anxiety). Tansy is not just great at giving hypnotherapy, but provides the role of a counsellor. What I find so helpful about her is that she can draw on her own experience: to have that recognition has been amazingly helpful. Besides very effective hypnotherapy recordings, which have helped me calm down and sleep at night, Tansy has provided a range of useful tools (including reading material) and practical advice. As a result, I now feel better than I have in years: I feel much calmer and sleep so well at night.

Alice W.

"It felt quite transforming to focus on a positive mind-set, rather than worrying about when the next anxiety attack would take place. Tansy is relatable, positive and calm as well as manages to create a relaxed atmosphere to discuss very sensitive subjects"

I had previously tried CBT and mediation to manager anxious thoughts. It felt quite transforming to focus on a positive mind-set, rather than worrying about when the next anxiety attack would take place. Tansy is relatable, positive and calm as well as manages to create a relaxed atmosphere to discuss very sensitive subjects. I felt entirely comfortable and safe during sessions. I liked that recordings from sessions were sent over to you afterwards, allowing me to listen to the hypnotherapy recording at your own leisure and when anxiety peaked, it was like a weight had been lifted

Hannah R.

"hypnotherapy has helped me in many ways, i think about what i eat snack less and eat a lot slower so i feel more full now"

I was a yoyo dieter I had joined several slimming clubs. I preferred hypnotherapy as it is great for feeling less stressed and more relaxed - counselling doesn't relax you in the same way.

Please give it a go i didn't think it would work for me it has helped me in many ways i think about what i eat snack less and eat a lot slower so i feel more full now.

Tansy is a lovely friendly lady who always made me feel at ease also very easy to talk too.

Kim M.

"I feel comfortable and have confidence in Tansy's abilities. She is excellent and knowledgeable."

Before hypnotherapy I tried medication and seeing Doctors as well as self-care but this was virtually ineffective.

I had also tried CBT but it was a short-term solution only and is forgotten in the long-term. With hypnotherapy it is long-term and the sessions are recorded so you can top up yourself - It is brilliant in comparison. If people are unsure about hypnotherapy, I would tell them it is 80-90% effective and for them to overcome any stereo-types about hypnotherapy. It is a different type of therapy but is very useful and helpful. My condition was not amenable to treatment but this cured me.

I feel comfortable and have confidence in Tansy's abilities. She is excellent and knowledgeable.

Hypnotherapy is effective but more importantly the therapy works.

Shami K.

"I went from being overwhelmed and depressed to now feeling positive, back to my outgoing self. After Tansy fixed that problem, I came back for help with being a bit overweight"

I was struggling to see the good in life, I felt like everything was too much and I was not coping with work, home, finances or my social life. I needed some help clearing my thinking and seeing things differently. After months of struggling, I decided I needed help, and found and contacted Tansy that day.

I was anxious going to my first session, but Tansy reassured me that hypnosis is actually a very pleasant experience. I was concerned about losing control of myself or clucking like a chicken for the rest of my life. But in actuality, it is a very relaxing and pleasant process, throughout which you have total control of your faculties. Hypnotherapy is very pleasant and a way to have someone else guide you through the dark times and into better times.

After our session together I felt great! I went from being overwhelmed and depressed to now feeling positive, back to my outgoing self. After Tansy fixed that problem, I came back for help with being a bit overweight and Tansy has been great with this different problem too.

Tansy not only delivers but over-delivers, with preparation and follow up from each session. It has been a really great experience and I recommend anyone to give it a try.

What is Hypnotherapy and NLP?

What is Hypnotherapy & Hypnosis?

Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state, similar to day dreaming and is induced when you are in a relaxed state, both physically and mentally. When in hypnosis the subconscious mind is unlocked, awoken and can communicate with the conscious mind, which is "switched off". 

Our subconscious mind is the more instinctive part of the brain than our conscious mind and this is the part that we are need to change or enhance in order to alter our own habits and behaviours.

Progress is made by gradually re-programming the subconscious mind so that deep-seated instincts and beliefs are challenged, removed, exchanged or even re-routed to something more healthier for the mind.

What is NLP?

Neuro-linguistic Programming

Neuro-Linguistic Programming or NLP, is a connection between your brain (neuro), language (linguistic) and behavioral patterns learned through experience (programming).  

When all three elements are enhanced through tools and techniques, this allows for rapid and mind altering change to meet a specific goal. One of the main benefits to NLP is that it changes the way we use our brain and allows us to understand why we might have a particular phobia such as spiders, we can't remove all the spiders in the world but we can  change a persons perception of the spider.

NLP has a track record for instilling fast and efficient change in a person and equips them with the tools to live their lives how they want.
