At Swanstherapy we appreciate that it is sometimes very difficult to pick up the phone and ask someone for help, but we recognise that this shows that you are, at least, willing to talk about making those changes that will improve your life and that is a big step on your own personal journey.
We accept that you are a unique, valuable individual and that you deserve to be listened to and understood, so that we can give you the best treatment we can offer, tailored to suit your own personal needs and circumstances.
We may have ten clients, for example, that all want to lose weight, but each will have their own reasons, their own strengths and weaknesses, their own eating habits and their own personal backgrounds, so it follows that one set agenda will not suit everyone. Whatever your particular problem, we need to hear your story, understand where you are now and where you want to be and then do the best we can to help you to reach that goal.
If you haven't experienced hypnotherapy before, you will find some useful information on our Q &A page and may be suprised by the wide range of problems that can be treated successfully using hypnotherapy in our treatments section. For those who have had previous experience of hypnotherapy, we are sure that you are already aware of the many benefits it can bring, not only helping to alleviate a particular problem but also leaving you feeling totally relaxed and positive about yourself.
Counselling and psychotherapy are perhaps more familiar terms for some people, particularly in dealing with issues such as bereavement and relationship problems, but can also be used to address more deep rooted issues such as anger and depression. For more information visit our counselling page.
At Swans Therapy we have found that a combination of treatments can be very effective and often suggest a hynotherapy session to help with a counselling issue or a counselling session to get to the root of a hypnotherapy issue giving us a wide platform of skills to help you to reach a successful resolution.
