Given society's ever-increasing demands, it is no surprise that personal problems arise. Such problems as depression, addictive behaviours, stress-related conditions, relationship difficulties, weight gain, and low self-esteem can be difficult to manage.  Work-related issues may also arise, including loss of confidence, difficulty working in teams, and trouble managing workload.

Gaynor helps clients resolve personal issues and have a better chance at achieving their potential by devising an individual  psychotherapeutic plan that draws upon a variety of proven techniques.  These techniques include counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy, rational emotive behavioural therapy, Gestalt, and transactional analysis.

Where appropriate, Gaynor incorporates hypnotherapy to bring about desired changes. Hypnotherapy is an altered state of consciousness in which the body is relaxed and the mind freed from over-riding conscious restraints, allowing the hypnotherapist to introduce positive suggestions to the subconscious mind which help bring about desired changes in thought and behaviour.  The client is aware of what is going on at all times, and so is an active participant in the process.  Hypnotherapy is most effective when the client is motivated to change.  Hypnotherapy, therefore, can be seen as a therapeutic partnership between the practitioner and the client.

Gaynor has a proven track record in treating addictive behaviours, including (but not limited to)  smoking, excess and binge drinking, nail biting, and the use of recreational drugs.  One session usually is sufficient, although Gaynor is always available for follow-up or reinforcement.

Gaynor now has a dedicated Hypnotherapy website which carries far more detailed information that she is able to put here.  To reach Gaynor's dedicated site, please click here:
