Empowering you to be the best version of yourself

What is
Voice Your Mind?

Voice Your Mind enables you to offload negative thoughts with me, your therapist, in a confidential, non-judgmental and safe way. As we work together, Voicing Your Mind facilitates a more positive and desirable behaviour, which quickly and painlessly moves you from your current stuck frame of mind, to where you want to be.  It empowers you to respond better and more positively to situations, rather than react negatively and irrationally to things we ‘think’ are true.

 

What would you like to achieve as a future goal or outcome?

 

What would you like different in your life?

 

What would make life better for you?

 

  • A positive self-worth and self-esteem?

  • An improved social confidence?

  • A reduction of stress and anxiety?

  • Overcoming fears and phobias?

  • Trauma - BIG or small

  • Taking control of addictive habits - anger, bingeing, smoking, nail biting, skin picking, comfort eating …..?

 

What get's in the way?

Usually a lack of self-esteem, lack of confidence, a feeling of being judged, not feeling good enough.  All these, and more, can usually be traced back to childhood events, not necessarily trauma but silly, thoughtless things that our parents or teachers or even friends have said - 'your sister can do that, why can't you?' 'Why can't you get 11 out of 10?' 'No pain, no gain.' 'We're working class and not meant to have much money.'

No wonder we get screwed up. Our beliefs are formed by what our parents believe.  It's time to fight back, challenge their beliefs 'who said so?' be empowered and make informed decisions by questioning and then, move on.

I have both witnessed and experienced that in order to be a confident and self-loving person,  the mind has to be in the right place for the body to do its thing and we cannot get the mind and body to work efficiently when there’s a perceived threat or danger.  Our bodies protect us, and quite rightly so. However, for example, the seemingly irrational fear that grips when we're about to get into a lift and our refusal to eat turkey at Christmas and our fear of any birds, probably stems from the time we were locked in the downstairs cupboard with a dead bird at the age of eight.  Every cell of our body was traumatised at that time and it is still carried within every cell to this day.  Our eight year old self was frozen in time and it's time to unlock the door and let that little self free.

What Are Complementary Therapies?

Well, in a nutshell, they concentrate on boosting a general sense of well-being by calming negative emotions and relieving anxiety. We know that positive emotions aid in improving health both physically, mentally and emotionally, don’t we? We just need a bit of guidance in helping us move away from the brick walls that stop us from being empowered and from making those positive changes.

Complementary therapies can be 'standalones' or can work alongside conventional care that is provided by medical professionals.  It is not a substitute for medical care or medication and if in doubt, always check with your GP.

Within our session we can just talk or, depending on your issues and to give you a reboot, we can add any number of modalities to complement your healing, from hypnotherapy right through to vocal coaching.  A great tool for performers, presenters, teachers, barristers...anyone who has anxiety getting up and delivering in front of others.

Psychological
Well-Being

There are six dimensions of psychological well-being in the first column.  

But what of the opposites in the second column? 

How many of the below resonate with you and your life?

Well-Being
  • Self-acceptance

  • Autonomy

  • Environmental mastery

  • Personal growth

  • Positive relationships

  • Purpose in life

Dis-Ease
  • Dislike of self, non self-acceptance

  • Feeling helpless, powerless

  • Too many outside events knocking you down

  • In a slump, stagnating

  • Not being true to yourself, pleasing others

  • Just existing day by day, floundering

If any of the above resonate in the Dis-ease side, it’s time to take back control of your life.  I will give you the tools to realise your own potential. We are much more than we think but sometimes our reservoir of resources and resilience skills gets so low, it prevents us from making positive and effective decisions.

 

All those in the Dis-ease column have a knock on effect and therefore ask yourself these:

  • Do I have low self-esteem?

  • Do I have mood swings and feel tearful?

  • Do I have low quality sleep, live in the past and can’t see my future clearly?

  • Do I have low-energy, lack of motivation and procrastinate?

  • Do I have a toxic work environment but can’t see my way out?

  • Do I have stage fright, performance or presenting anxiety?

 

And most importantly..


Am I being the BEST VERSION of MYSELF?

Covid-19 and lockdowns have posed challenges.  Are you taking advantage of possible opportunities during this unprecedented time to improve yourself, or has lockdown made you feel anxious, insecure, challenged, and even taken away your personal power and you’ve become a victim?
How are you coping with the ups and downs of everyday life?

If your mental well-being is low (at Dis-ease level) and you’d welcome learning how to give it that positive boost and gain resilience strategies, we can work together on a bespoke package. Book that FREE 15 minute phone call with me.

What’s in your past?
Have you formed unhealthy habits and addictive behaviours overtime, such as anger, overeating, too much media, binge drinking, not exercising enough, smoking?  

The problem is usually not where you think it is i.e. in the present.  It’s often further back and formed around the age of six.  It shows up in the present as multiples of issues but its root cause needs to be addressed, otherwise unhealthy habits and negative mind-sets will continue to control and limit us.  We will sabotage our own personal growth.
​​

In my practising experience, root causes have been:

  • Childhood trauma (big or small) 

  • Abuse - physical, sexual and/or emotional

  • Neglect, abandonment

  • Social isolation or loneliness

  • Experiencing bullying, stigma and discrimination

  • Social disadvantage, poverty, debt

  • Bereavement, grief, loss

  • Severe and long-term stress

  • Guilt, shame

My Happy Clients

Amanda helped me with only one session of Emotional Freedom Tapping with her. During the pandemic we wanted to purchase a new car, a convertible. I felt a huge amount of guilt because I felt that it was an indulgence and we should not make such a purchase whilst other people were financially badly affected due to Covid19.

 

Amanda took time to analyse and resolve the feelings I struggled with and I love driving the convertible without any feeling of guilt or overindulgence.
