Why did I choose to become a therapist?

Hypnotherapy near Basildon Essex - South Benfleet Well, I have always found that people seem able to come to me for support and find me easy to talk to and supportive. Plus on a personal note; hypnotherapy helped me to quit smoking (and I was a heavy smoker for years!) and grow as a person. I like to feel I am a sincere and compassionate individual and I am fascinated  about the mind/body connection.

I find it incredibly worthwhile helping people prevail over problems or conditions that may be holding them back and preventing them from being the best that can be. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are great ways to help people communicate their personal emotions, in a lovely, relaxed atmosphere, which may otherwise be difficult to do.
