The Power Package
This package uses an approach called single session therapy it is an approach developed by the acclaimed CBT Therapist and Academic Windy Dryden (of whom I was trained by). It is a purposeful endeavour where you and I set out with the intention of helping you at your time of need, in one session; knowing that more sessions are available if you would like further support.
Is it for me?
It for you if you have a specific issue that can be tackled in a focused way and you want to deal with it as quickly as possible.
It is for you if you find yourself wanting to move forward but are feeling a bit stuck or are unsure what to do.
It is for you if you don’t want to go into a detail about your past. In this package we will focus on the issue you are bringing, solutions and the future.
It may not be for you if you know you would like more than one session from the offset and would like ongoing therapy. This is absolutely fine as I can offer you ongoing therapy.
How it can help;
Improve relationships, reduce anxiety, help you feel more in control, help you feel better about yourself, help you to develop coping strategies, recognise triggers or things that make you feel worse, make sense of your feelings and your needs, help you to communicate your needs, give you clarity and identify steps to help you achieve your goal.
It can help in many ways with a variety of different circumstances. The most important things about it is it helps you with what you want help with as we work on the issue and the goal in which you would like to.

Children & Young People
Walk & Talk Therapy
We all know that being outside in nature can have a beneficial impact on both our mental health and our physical health.
Studies have shown that physical exercise and nature can reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, promote healing, boost our immune system and aid our ability to relax. Also there is a phenomenal quality that walking has on stimulating the brain which can help us think more clearly and see things differently – perfect to support the therapeutic process. Ever heard anyone say they are going for a walk to clear their mind? It really does have a restorative effect and doing this alongside therapy gives us the opportunity to harness this within our session.
The act of walking gives you something to focus on, allows for silences, breaks to notice the surroundings and gives opportunity for us to be walking side by side rather than opposite one another. This can feel more usual, normal and supportive. This may appeal to to you if you feel more comfortable with less eye contact and having something to focus on doing. How many walks have you been on where you have a chat to someone? I suspect quite a few. Therefore this can help you feel more comfortable and familiar with the process and help you to share.
We will walk at a place and pace that suits you and we can pause at any time. Walk and Talk therapy is offered in Nottingham during spring and summer.

I have a wealth of knowledge and experience working with children, young people and their families. From this experience I have found that offering children a safe, friendly, non-judgemental space can be extremely valuable. Children and young people often find it difficult to talk to their loved ones about how they are feeling as they don’t want to worry, upset or burden you. I know that all you want is for them to share so that you can understand and support them. This is where I can help.
I believe in helping children and young people share their feelings and experiences with their families as I know that you are their biggest supporter. This can be difficult and daunting for some children and young people therefore I often start with having a space where you can both join in and also offer you both individual time with me. This way I can help us work out what you want and the best way forward.
For those children and young people who wish to share with their parents / carers I am passionate about sharing my understanding, knowledge and skills with you so that when they are struggling you are equipped with the information and tools you need to help your child get through difficult times. It is much easier for us all to help ourselves and make positive changes when you have someone that understands you and what you are trying to achieve.

Therapy allows you to reflect upon your experiences and offer you insight into your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This can serve as a catalyst for promoting growth and positive change whilst providing you with support. I specialise in providing an approach which suits you.
Often individuals are referred for a specific therapy because it may be clinically recognised to help a specific difficulty however the timeframe, approach or individual therapist may not appeal to you and how you would like to experience therapy. This is where I come in. I have a wealth of knowledge and experience and I am trained in various different therapeutic approach (see 'about me'). I believe that there are three fundamental things that will help you achieve what you want in therapy:
The therapeutic relationship between us - simply put you like me, you feel I understand you and feel I have the skills to help you.
That you are ready - you have an idea of what you would like to achieve and want to achieve it.
That the approach is right for you - we are talking about the things you want to, in a way in which suits you.
This is where my free first conversation comes into place. Let’s have a chat and within this conversation we will be able to work out these three fundamentals. You will be able to get a sense of me and see if I am someone you can see yourself talking to, that I have an approach that makes you feel comfortable and your confident in what I am saying and we can talk about what you want to achieve.
Have you ever had a really good chat to a good friend and or loved one - the type where they have really understood you, listened to you and helped you reflect on your situation and afterwards you came away with clarity, hope and feeling validated? I hope that you have at some point felt this. This is the experience I can offer you in therapy. I am the professional version of this experience with many added advantages; the conversation will be about you, not me (as it may be with a friend or loved one), its completely confidential, impartial and my response is built upon a wealth of therapeutic knowledge, tools and experience to empower you to feel better and make positive changes to influence your current experiences.
Other advantages to speaking to myself compared to speaking with a friend or loved one. With a friend, colleague or loved one we often
Hold back what we share (worry about taking over the conversation, being negative and it being all about you)
Overthink what we are going to say
Worry about how it may be interpreted or understood
Worry what they will think of you
Worry about being a burden or putting a downer on the conversation
Worry about the impact it may have on your relationship
Get glib or bad advice that doesn’t help (even though given with the best intentions)
Would you like to feel listened to, heard, understood and validated? Would you like to feel hopeful & clear? Would you like to understand what can help you feel better? I imagine the answer is yes, then I invite you to have a chat with me I promise this experience can feel so comforting, freeing, helpful and good.

Video on Walk & Talk Therapy
Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation, focus, and increased suggestibility.
This deep state of relaxation is something that you have already experiences as we regularly find ourselves lost in thought or immersed. For an example when we are scrolling on social media or when we are on auto pilot whilst driving.
The difference is that during hypnotherapy, I guide you as you welcome in this deep state of relaxation, where you have increased suggestibility and I can support your subconscious and conscious mind to think, feel and behaviour differently in a way that you wish to and a way that serves you better to achieve your goal.
I specialise in offering hypnotherapy alongside theraputic support and approaches such as cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behavioural therapy to get you relief from anxiety, panic, feeling overwhelmed, overthinking, feelings of unworthiness, perfectionism and people pleasing.
There is a wealth of evidence to suggest that combining these therapies maximises the results that you will experience. Which of course makes sense as hypnotherapy works with your subconscious mind whilst the other approaches, I offer works with your conscious mind to support you to make changes in the way you experience your difficulties, how you feel about them, how they affect your and how you behave in relation to them
Hypnotherapy and the experience of hypnotherapy is quite different to what is portrayed in the entertainment industry. There are no gimmicks, swirling patterns, pendulums or looking into my eyes in my hypnotherapy. I offer you guidance through gently talking to you, guiding you through relaxing words and you choose to relax and feel peaceful whilst you are in full control. Following the session, I offer you a recording of these guided words for you to play to help you build new connections and habits. You can choose to play these in the day whilst you are relaxing or at night which will help you to fall asleep. Your subconscious mind will continue to listen even when you are asleep.
All hypnosis is technically self-hypnosis as you are allowing yourself to become relaxed and this is your choice. There isn’t a specific feeling of being ‘hypnotised’ it will simply feel like a relaxed state, lovely and relaxed and calm. An experience you have already felt.
Hypnosis works by relaxing you which calms the activity of the frontal cortex. The thinking part of our brain. Once this is relaxed we can fully engage our sub conscious mind become more open to information, more suggestible, and capable of creating more intense sensations in our minds (Thomson, 2019).
A fascinating study in 2006 found that when individuals were in a hypnotic relaxed state they were more able to imagine pleasant memories as if they were real as the areas of the brain involved in creativity, movement and sensation became more active
(Faymonville, Boly, & Laureys, 2006).
In 2019 Barnes et al 14 sperate studies and found hypnotherapy to be as effective as other forms of behavioural support six months after treatment.

You find yourself here with a difficulty that you want relief from. Maybe its anxiety, overthinking, panic, not feeling good enough, perfectionism, people pleasing or perhaps it’s something else.
You’re wondering what to do, how I can support you and if things can be different? They absolutely can! This complimentary call is my invitation to you, to explore these questions and any others you may have. You deserve to explore these questions.
I have supported so many where this complimentary call was the gateway for them to gain control, get relief and feel better. They were once here questioning all the above and more and if they had never taken the opportunity of this complementary call they wouldn’t have achieved the successes that they currently are. After all our emotional health affects us and our lives profoundly. There isn’t any aspect of our life that isn’t impacted by our emotional health.
This conversational may be welcoming and relaxed but I assure you it is mighty in its power to serve as a therapeutic process in itself and a way of directing you intentions to support your positive changes.
Have a look at what date and time suits you best. I have so much respect for you for putting yourself first and I will look forward to our conversation.
With love Emma
