Building confidence Against Workplace Bullies

I was talking to a friend today about an interview he’d had and starting a new job. I remembered how nerve-wracking it is meeting new people as an adult. How joining an established ‘team’ leaves you feeling exposed and vulnerable. It’s great if it works out but I also remember situations in the past when that feeling didn’t go away. Of course we can’t all get on with everyone but what if you feel picked on or maybe a group of people leave you out, talk behind your back, or involve you but make nasty comments under the guise of being friendly…. Make no mistake, this is bullying. While childhood bullying is one of the issues now being addressed more openly, being bullied as an adult is still a sadly taboo subject leaving victims at risk of depression and suicidal thoughts. It can happen at work, your neighborhood, your relationship or even from family members.

Adults feel they should be able to stand up for themselves and often feel ashamed of being bullied but be assured you MUST NOT tolerate such behaviour. No one should feel victimised or made to be afraid by anyone, ever. Talking to someone is the hardest but most positive step you can make toward freeing yourself. You deserve better and to be respected for who you are. Please talk to a friend, family, colleague, and if you can’t, talk to me…

Love who you are

America… Everything is big, and therapy is biggest of all. According to research over 50 million people have a therapist they see on average once a month. Maybe they know something we don’t?

Sometimes you just need to vent, or to talk about issues arising on a regular basis that trouble you. Maybe you have something to address that you’ve never even told your nearest and dearest?

Hypnotherapy, Emotional Behaviour Therapy, CBT and a right good natter could be exactly what you’re looking for to make sense and calm out of the maze that is life today. Whatever you do, don’t be alone!

Give me a call and join those who have changed their lives.

Look after yourself

Student Life

Student life! Well, it’s a lot of reading, a bit of writing, messing about on the computer, loads of parties and a cracking job for life at the end… Isn’t it?

I was a once a degree student at Huddersfield and it wasn’t like that even then. Students tell me of being homesick in a new town, worrying about debt, workload and feeling out of their depth. Some even wonder how they ended up on the roller-coaster of College/University life in the first place. This can be coupled with dealing with a home and family for mature students which adds even more pressure. 

Day to day anxieties about fitting in with your peers and making your parents proud can be crushing if you have noone to talk to. Counselling within the education sector has long waiting lists but you need someone NOW. Here’s where I can help.. 

Practicing Hypnotherapy in Huddersfield, combined with counselling and Emotional Behaviour Therapy I give continuous STUDENT DISCOUNTS. I strongly believe that as a past (and continuing professional development) student it’s hard enough already without being unable to afford the help you need, at the time of your life you may need it most. I will do my best to fit in our meetings around your studies and am open 6 days a week including evenings. 

Reach for the stars is a cliche you’ll probably hear a lot, but if you reach out for help first, you’ll doubtless get there! Give me a call and make your student years the best time of your life. 

Look after yourself

Insomnia Sucks!

How many problems that keep you awake at night are actually practical ones? Did your car break down today? Have a swarm of wasps moved into your loft for the winter? (yikes! Fair enough I’ll give you that one!) But seriously, over 85% of all worry and anxiety is emotional. We FEEL it. It hurts our hearts, it shakes our security and goes around and around in our heads as if it’s searching for an escape, desperately seeking a way out.

If you can’t afford long term counselling but need to work through a solution with real, non judgemental coping strategies why not call for a chat about hypnotherapy. Sometimes only one session is necessary but if you need more time, a combination of counselling, Hypnotherapy and Rational Emotional Behaviour Therapy can stop the carousel of life affecting worries from continuing. I’m a Hypnotherapist in Huddersfield, here to listen and help… After all, in giving me a call you have nothing to lose and peace of mind to gain.

Be kind to yourself

Let’s Not Be Strangers

I was listening to the radio today and a song came on from my teenage years called ‘Dance Away’. It has the line ‘Loneliness is a crowded room’. I started thinking about how we all can identify with lines in music when we are feeling something deep within us which troubles us… It can be loneliness, or sadness, heartache or any number of emotional problems. We can’t always put our finger on what it is but you can guarantee someone, sometime has written a song that describes it perfectly.

But what about when the music stops? Counselling and Emotional Behaviour Therapy combined with Hypnotherapy brings an ear, someone to listen and to hear you. We all need to engage with another person who doesn’t just give us a ‘line’ to fit our mood, but who allows us to talk and works with us to resolve the issues we carry.

Of course self-help books and YouTube videos have their place but sometimes you just need to offload to a stranger, but a stranger who is on your side, who is there just for you, to be that other person, that other human being who puts you first. A good therapist should never feel like a stranger…

As a therapist in Huddersfield I will always put YOU first. I will never treat your problems with a one ‘cure’ fits all attitude but will work with you to reach your full potential. Let’s work together to find a happier tune… Give me a call and I can help.

Look after yourself

What About The Guys?

Social media is a strange and often biased place to be. Every day there is a new post asking us to like and share if we have an awesome Mum, Sister, Daughter or Grandma. Posts asking us to like and share the Mums who go above and beyond for their children. We share about the concerns, abuses and unfairness toward women and we celebrate the rights of women to be free-spirited and be valued.

BUT, what about the guys? The men who suffer, who are sidelined in a society which simply assumes they’re all OK, that life as a man is somehow privileged and devoid of worry. Well men DO worry. They worry about health or becoming a new Dad, they worry about work and relationships. They worry about retirement and feeling undervalued. And they cry… Often silently and alone, feeling they can’t reach out because society says they shouldn’t need to. I mean after all, men are tough aren’t they?

A man often has concerns unique to him such as vasectomy worries, baldness and self-esteem, maybe being the breadwinner as a single Father or if Mum is taking care of the children…and he feels ‘less of a man’ if he expresses these worries aloud.

If this is you, I can help. Men matter and at Finally Free Therapies NO problem is a problem, you can talk in a friendly space knowing there is help ready and waiting.

I’m a Hypnotherapist in Huddersfield. Guys, call for me for a chat about what matters to YOU.
