How I became a Hypnotherapist & Havening Techniques Practitioner

My journey to become a hypnotherapist began when I got involved in personal development when working as a sales and marketing coach/trainer back in my mid twenties. I started studying NLP (neuro linguistics programming) back then which are a set of psychological techniques and strategies which can you help you to think more positive and to be more successful in your life.

Around that time of my life due to stress at work and pushing myself too hard I developed anxiety and started having severe panic attacks. I was aware at the time that hypnotherapy could be beneficial for anxiety so I started doing some research and came across the Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy here in Ireland. I was already quite curious about how hypnosis worked so I decided to enrol and kill two birds at the same time; learn in detail about hypnotherapy and cure the anxiety and panics attacks, which thankfully it did.

After becoming qualified as a hypnotherapist I set up a full time private practice. That was about 13 years ago and since then I have treated thousands of people on a range of psychological, emotional and behavioural issues. Issues such as weight loss, stop smoking, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, PTSD, depression and confidence issues. And even some physical ones too such as chronic pain.

As a hypnotherapist I have also studied a wide range of various other types of personal development and therapeutic modalities in the last decade such as psychoanalysis, hypno-analysis, NLP, hypnotherapy, BWRT, psychotherapy, the Demartini Method, EFT & TFT  (tapping acupuncture points on the body) so I could get the best outcomes as possible for my clients.

Hypnotherapist discovers the Havening Techniques.

About 4 years ago I discovered a new groundbreaking neuro scientific treatment called Havening Techniques which were researched and developed by  American medical Dr Ronald Ruden.

This treatment is the best I have come across to date for curing anxiety based disorders such as panic attacks, phobias, post- traumatic stress, depression and even chronic physical pain. Havening is being hailed by many of my peers as one of the biggest breakthroughs in psychology. Even the worlds most famous hypnotherapist Paul McKenna says,’Havening is going to change the face of therapy across the world’, and I agree because these unique techniques can astonishingly cure anxiety, stress and trauma related problems completely and permanently within minutes! Plus there are other powerful applications with hypnotherapy that be used with Havening.

I now personally work closely with the creator of Havening the American Dr Ronald Ruden & his brother Dr Steven Ruden. I am one of the most experienced Havening Practitioners in the world and I am an International Certified Havening Techniques Trainer. So I now train other health professionals such as psychologists, psychotherapists, hypnotherapists and counsellors how to apply this breakthrough approach. Recently I have also been made Deputy Head of UK & Europe for Havening as we continue to share Havening with the world.

In my sessions with clients I can quickly and effectively resolve most stress related issues such as anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, phobias, and various other negative emotional states, that are preventing them from leading a more fulfilling life. As a hypnotherapist I aim to resolve these issues at the start as they are often the main underlying causes of many unwanted thought patterns, emotions and behaviours that are holding people back in their lives. Once we clear and remove this negative emotional baggage,I then help my clients change any behavioural patterns that are causing problems, or that are no longer serving them.

I also use my hypnotic skills, knowledge and techniques to help my clients feel more confidence, happiness and resilience within themselves. The ultimate goal of most my sessions and programs is to help my clients become the best that they can be, & to help them focus on making their dreams and goals become realities. I feel very lucky and privileged to be able to do the work that I love and to help people transform their lives for the better in the process.
