Whatever your situation, I’m pleased you are seeking help.  Take that first step and get in touch.  We can work together to build you back up and start enjoying life to the full.

Self-harming is a response to emotions that are hard to control or feel.  It serves as a distraction and release of emotions such as self-loathing, sadness, guilt or rage.  Self-harming may be conducted because you feel this is one area of your life you can control.

Due to that ‘distraction’ the subconscious believes it has found a solution but it’s an unhealthy solution.  We therefore need to work with the subconscious to create a healthy emotional foundation and build in the other aspects that make your life more positive.

The relief felt from the self-harming is only felt for a short period of time.  You then feel the need to repeat the behaviour.  Does any of this sound familiar to you?

In order to stop this behaviour, we address the underlying emotions and traumas that you have suffered in a safe and confidential environment.  The first step is making that call or sending that email and then you can start to feel empowered to take charge of your life. 

Most people have negative behaviour because they do not believe just how powerful they are and fail to recognise the choices they have in life.  I offer you an opportunity to make these positive changes by working with you at your pace.

One of the most rewarding parts of my role as a therapist is to see the change in my clients.  To see you stand a little taller, asserting yourself, set boundaries, talking to yourself in a more positive manner, stop people pleasing and stop listening to any negative talk from others.  I call this personal development because when we work through these processes, you are learning along the way.  This becomes knowledge that you take with you for life.

Ann was recommended to me by a friend who had been helped by Ann for her depression and anxiety. I decided I had nothing to lose by going along. I am quite a nervous person but Ann was really lovely. Self-harming is such a private issue to deal with so talking about it was initially a challenge but Ann calmly guided me and I felt very safe. Ann used a few different therapies on me – hypnotherapy, tapping and colour therapy. I was amazed at the colour therapy – this is colour bottles, the wording was completely relevant. Some of them were scented too and they were so calming. Ann has helped me massively overcome issues related to my self-harming and now I am back in control. I have more work to do but as Ann says “we are all work in progress”. I have no idea how the colour therapy works but those bottles are incredible and I would not hesitate in going back to Ann if I felt the need.
