Hello, I’m Derek, I’m a therapist specialising in ‘talking therapies’, especially Hypnotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). With these techniques, I can help you to connect with your unconscious mind and eradicate those unwanted thoughts or behaviours which have stopped you being able to live the life that you deserve.
It’s not uncommon to struggle with inner conflict, you want to succeed in your career, your relationships and be the best version of yourself. What’s stopping you? Those nagging thoughts in the back of your mind are holding you back. They tell you that “you’re not good enough”, “you shouldn’t behave that way” or “you can’t do it”. These thoughts can be caused by conventional social norms, a previous traumatic experience or even your upbringing. Your unconscious mind is, in essence, trying to protect you from harm by preventing you from moving forward into the unknown; familiar always feels safer.
Together we solve this by calming those thoughts, replacing the negative processes with positive, empowering ways forward. Every treatment is different, there is not a one-size-fits-all category. We work together to find a way to reassure your unconscious mind that the path you choose isn’t as dangerous as previously believed and that no harm will come to you from moving forward with your life.
It may take one session, it may take several, but as a result my clients are able to leave their psychological ‘nuisances’ behind and dramatically improve their life.
Over the years I have helped numerous clients to combat their phobias, free themselves from anxieties and believe in their abilities.
“When I first met Derek I was feeling lost in my career. I was questioning my decisions and my self- confidence was affected. Derek helped me to understand why I was feeling that way. Through our sessions I found clarity. I’m now loving my work every day and feel really in touch with my own sense of purpose. Everything makes more sense and I can see where I want to go on the road ahead. Thank you Derek! X”
