Vanessa MichaelMy aim is to help you overcome nicotine addiction and help you find a path to health vitality and freedom.

I am a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Counsellor and Psychotherapist and practice as a fully qualified Hatha Yoga and Meditation Teacher.  During my early teens I developed an interest in the subconscious thought patterns and how they influence our conscious choices.

Since then I have studied various therapies, experienced a range of treatment therapies and completed qualifications to explore further the subconscious and conscious mind and how it affects our Mind Body health and well-being. Having worked in a variety of fields, holding senior positions in national corporations, as well as managing my own manufacturing business, I am familiar with many of the daily challenges we all experience in life.

It was whilst working in various countries around Asia pacific, that I began to explore the eastern philosophies of healing. My strong belief, is that the most permanent and effective changes happen at the subconscious level. This healing process has helped me to overcome some of my own challenges in life.

Over the years, my work with Hypnosis, Meditation, Mind Body Therapies and Visualisations has led me to develop new methods which have helped many others gain insight into the deeper levels of the mind and find new pathways to tap into the body’s own intelligence system.

In my role as a support for you, I allow you to be part of the process in deciding the style of therapy that would best suit you, your personality and your issues.

When we realise how emotional and mental blockages can interfere with our goals, we can work towards releasing these and developing the knowledge and skills in finding our own way to be who we want to be.

Some of the therapies and techniques I work with include:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Counselling
  • Hypnotherapy
  • Emotion Focused Therapy
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Meditation and Mindfulness
  • Person Centered Counselling
  • Gestalt Therapy
  • Psychodynamic Psychology
  • Western and Eastern Psychology and Philosophy
  • Spiritual Counselling

In my therapy practice, the approach is friendly, non-judgemental compassionate and one of acceptance so that you can feel comfortable and supported throughout the process.

I look forward to working with you in helping you find your freedom to live the life you choose and be the person you want to be.
