Compulsive social media or smartphone use
How does your phone use affect you? Do you find it hard when you are unable to check your phone? Can a train journey, waiting in a queue or do times when you can’t connect to the internet feel intolerable?
Do you think too much about what to write or which pictures to post for a ‘status update’, 'story' or how to respond to a tweet or comment? Do you feel a very strong, perhaps exaggerated feeling of anger or insult after online interactions (often with strangers) on Twitter or Facebook?
Do you feel a positive boost from the amount of ‘like’s or comments a post receives, waiting and looking forward to checking these? Anticipating responses from social media or even text messages has been compared to the feeling gamblers expect when using a slot machine. The recognition or that feeling of ‘connectedness’ social media gives, can indeed be like a mini high. Looking forward to that positive interaction, be it a text or a ‘like’, creates a slightly nervous state. Not getting it or spending too long online can leave you feeling drained and down. This feeling is similar to withdrawal symptoms felt from other addictive patterns.
Do you sometimes engage in unhealthy patterns around smartphone use, gaming or social media? Are your real life interpersonal relationships being affected? Are you using gaming or social media to avoid forming meaningful real life relationships?
My approach is to view you as whole, capable and fully able to make choices. As such we will work together, helping you to deal well with thoughts and desires and reduce your feelings of dependence on gaming, your phone or social media.
There can be a great deal of shame associated with any addiction. Depending on your circumstances, your phone usage may involve some shame and therefore you may keep much of it a secret. It can feel a big enough deal to admit to yourself that something needs to change. I listen and support. I never judge anything you have done or anything you might say. Sessions are confidential.
Sessions are £110. Book four sessions for £400 or six for £570.
Living life fully and confidently
Phones and social media are a part of life. However you will be able to impose good and clear boundaries on your usage. This is something we will look at. Gaming or phone usage can be to avoid stress or deal with anxiety, relationships or social situations. It is time to find alternative ways to deal with life’s ups and downs. It is also important to consider other ways to relax and ways to nurture your well-being.
Gaming or social media can be used to avoid addressing and working towards those things you truly want out of life. Parallel to reducing usage of technology, I will support you, if needed, to re-discover confidence and remind yourself of all those goals you once wanted and those gifts you have to give to the world around you.
Moving from dependency or addiction will signal for you a movement in a positive and optimistic direction. I hope my hypnosis sessions will help you made those changes you would like to see.

Free Initial Consultation
Following your free initial phone consultation, you may be asked to keep a diary of technology usage for a few days and complete a helpful background questionnaire.
Your consultation will be by phone. It is a place for you to hear more about how I work and ask any questions, no matter how small. The call will also help you directly, focusing on your challenges. It should be a positive step for you on your road to recovering your old self. Helping you feel in control and more confident again.
And if, at the end of the consultation, you do not wish to book hypnosis sessions, that is totally fine. There is no pressure and you are under no obligation whatsoever.

Four or six powerful sessions of coaching, including therapy exercises and powerful hypnotherapy. Though there is some structure, it is vital that sessions are about your unique needs rather than a generic approach. I have a results-driven focus.
