True life is lived when tiny changes occur
Solution Focused Hypnotherapist
Without Alexandra I truly do believe it would have taken me years to achieve the goals and mindset I have now.
Meet Alexandra Gibson
I am a caring, compassionate and non-judgemental hypnotherapist who uses Solution Focused Hypnotherapy to help people to make the changes they want to make to be successful and happy.
My focus is helping you find the solutions that are right for you and helping you access your resources and skills to make those changes.
My practice is underpinned by the latest research in neuroscience to help you understand how your brain works and how you can use that knowledge to make the changes you want to make.
My sessions consist of working on solutions with you and hypnosis. Hypnosis or 'trance' is very natural helps us access our subconscious to reduce stress/anxiety and focus on making positive changes.
I practice hypnotherapy in Harley Street, London and Whitstable, Kent. I also offer hypnotherapy online at at time and place to suit you. Read what my clients say. Contact me for an informal chat for more information.
I work with clients in a number of areas. Contact me for an informal chat so I can show you how I will help you.
Managing stress and anxiety
Modern life and the workplace can be very stressful. I work with individuals and organisations to help them learn how to reduce stress and anxiety to perform better and be happier at work and at home.
My approach is based on neuroscience and knowledge of how the brain works.
Sessions include working on solutions and trance, which helps clients access their subconscious to make the positive solutions they want to make leaving old and unwanted behaviours behind.
Good sleep is essential for mental health. I can help with many sleep problems such as:
Waking up at night
Difficulty getting to sleep
Difficulty waking up
Waking up too early
I work with clients suffering from insomnia to help them improve their sleep patterns. I do this by helping them understand why they may be having problems sleeping and then tackling those issues to help them wake up refreshed - free from stress and anxiety.
Fears and Phobias
All too often people have fears or phobias which can prevent them from leading the life they want to lead. It is estimated that as many as 85% of British people suffer from a fear or phobia. Happily, hypnotherapy can help free you from these. Here are just some of the fears that I can help you with:
Spiders or other insects
Please get in touch to see how I can help free you from these unwanted feelings.
Decision making and Procrastination
Difficulties with decision making and procrastination are very common for most of us from time to time. This is often caused by anxiety about the thing we are meant to do or around the decision we are meant to take.
Solution focused hypnotherapy can be very helpful in reducing anxiety and stress to put you back into intellectual control where you can draw on your vast intellectual resources to make the most suitable decision and take the most appropriate action for you.
I use a mixture of talking therapy and trance to help you come to the best solutions for you. Give me a call to discuss how I can help you move forward with decisions and actions.
Post traumatic stress disorder can be caused by experiencing or witnessing life threatening situations. These highly charged situations can interfere with the normal processing of emotional memories in the brain. This can mean that those suffering with PTSD can suffer from flashbacks and cannot control when they are taken back to those experiences.
Thankfully, there are tools that I can use with you to help you process these memories so that you have more intellectual control over them. I have a variety of techniques, including the Muss rewind, which I am qualified to use. Get in touch to find out how I can help you with this.
I often have pro bono slots for those working on the front line i.e. NHS staff, Police, Fire officers and military in the UK. Get in touch to see if I can work with you.
Performance and Exam anxiety
We are often called on to perform in front of an audience in the workplace or take important assessments:
I work with organisations and individuals to help them prepare for high stakes exams, meetings and presentations. I do this by helping you understand what may be limiting your success and helping you remove those barriers so you can be at your best on the day.
