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.

"Working with Tansy has been a lifesaver for me, after spending years not knowing whether I drink too much or it's affecting my general happiness and lifestyle. It felt so liberating and cathartic to be so open and honest with somebody who could fully understand my situation and immediately know exactly how to look at overcoming it"

I'd previously attempted to manage my binge drinking issues simply through self-will - things like "I'm starting a fresh week" or "I'm not going to be the last man standing at a party".

I also attempted to be too strict on myself in other ways - i.e. exercise, work, diet, life admin but there was no balance with this and it just led me to binge drink even more as a "reward" later in the week. At this point, I wasn't acknowledging the more complex issues I had with alcohol and recognising how it needed to be explored directly, separate to my other "good lifestyle choices".

Working with Tansy has been a lifesaver for me, after spending years not knowing whether I drink too much or it's affecting my general happiness and lifestyle. It felt so liberating and cathartic to be so open and honest with somebody who could fully understand my situation and immediately know exactly how to look at overcoming it. Tansy's welcoming, communicative, super attentive and immediately puts you at ease. She knows exactly how to react and advise and make the most out of your highs and lows throughout the process.

My main benefit from working with Tansy is having the opportunity to work with and balance both CBT and Hypnotherapy methods to overcome my issues. As well as the hypnotherapy the exercises / literature / trigger testing alongside the audio element have been equally as brilliant at recognising, acknowledging and combatting my bad habits and toxic relationship with alcohol.

"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.

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.

"Having someone who understood what I was going through, who was very empathetic and patient, but also who knew when it was time to 'get tougher' with me"

I was a Yo-yo dieter but I never got to the bottom of the original cause of weight gain. I had also tried some CBT in the past, but haven't been very successful with it. I've enjoyed the hypnotherapy because I needed someone else to 'hold my hand' during the process and also actual hypnosis was very relaxing and comforting for me. I looked forward to it every week, as well as the listening to the recordings during the week!

If you are hesitant just go for it but remember that it takes time because you are re-learning years and years of wrong internal messages/cues/behaviours. Be patient. It all makes sense in the end!

I think Tansy has got her sessions just right. It is really nice being in a home environment rather than a clinical one. Having someone who understood what I was going through, who was very empathetic and patient, but also who knew when it was time to 'get tougher' with me and then hand over the reins to me to go forward myself.

"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.

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.

Weight Loss

I’ve been to Weight Watchers and various other organisations to help support me. They do work if you follow the program, but sometimes you find yourself at a level that is below par and you have no will power therefore attainment is far off.

Hypnotherapy is not scary because you trust your therapist, you know that you wouldn’t be taken anywhere you don’t want to go. It’s not like hypnosis on a TV program!! I felt relaxed, in control and that I was gently being lead to a greater understanding of my problem. I gained confidence in my daily life functions. I learnt how to be in control of my anxieties and disappointments and to face up to my problems and then do something about them.

Angela T.

"Tansy is very friendly and takes the time to research your issue if it happens to be something out of the ordinary"

I wasn't really able to manage with my health issues at all, it was very frustrating. Tansy is very friendly and takes the time to research your issue if it happens to be something out of the ordinary. I look forward to continuing treatment for more improvement using the recorded sessions she provided.

Russ S.

"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

"Tansy she has such a calming effect and is a hugely positive person that instills confidence in a very easy manner."

I had used CBT and psychotherapy before and I found Hypnotherapy can go to the root of the problem without having to spend years digging around for it.

Hypnotherapy is a very effortless kind of therapy, you can turn on the recordings before bed and fall asleep listening to them and they will still be effective as the subconscious will be listening.

I looked forward to my sessions with Tansy she has such a calming effect and is a hugely positive person that instills confidence in a very easy manner.

Tansy has had such a positive impact on where I am at the moment. I am considering a career change and Tansy helped build my confidence to be able to take this move fearlessly. She has a natural ability to empower people and is hugely gifted when it comes to helping people see their potential. Her scripts are so tailor made and personal that she stands out from any other hypnotherapist I've come across.

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.
