Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapy at The Pebble Ridge Practice, Devon.

If you are ready to embrace POSITIVE change, will today be your Day 1 or will it be just one day?

 

COVID-19 UPDATE

During these unsettling times I have made the decision to be treating clients solely ONLINE via the Zoom platform. Zoom is live, face to face, interactive and very easy to use and I have been working online with clients in different locations in the UK for the past two years and the results are just as brilliant!!

It is so important to me to continue to support my clients and to be able to help in this very unusual situation we all find ourselves in. Consultations are still FREE of charge, so why not make today your Day 1 by contacting me where we can discuss how I can help you. 

Keep safe, healthy and positive and enjoy reading my website 🙂

Charlotte

I am an experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist & Psychotherapist, specialising in Solution Focused Therapy, which uses practical, modern and well researched strategies to help you make significant, positive changes in your life working with Children and Adults.   

I can help you with the treatment of:

  • Stress
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Post-natal depression
  • PTSD/Traumas
  • Insomnia & Sleeping patterns
  • Panic Attacks
  • Confidence & Self Esteem
  • Weight Loss
  • Fears & Phobias
  • Giving up Smoking

If you are stuck on the hamster wheel and fed up with negativity, feeling in a low mood and want more for yourself, your life and career… Let me help  you find happiness, success and that inner calmness to enable you to get the sparkle back in your life and become the best version of you

Working with Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, I look at what you want to achieve rather than the problem that may have prompted you to seek change, therefore the approach focuses on the present and future.

Hypnosis itself reduces anxiety and this is done very simply through relaxation and visualisation, allowing you to focus on the positive aspects of your life which encourages a shift in perspective. Session are made up of part Solution Focused Talking therapy, Psychotherapy (education about the brain) and deep relaxation.

I focus on where you WANT to be rather than the past and help to get the “real you back”, looking towards a future where you are in control and free to enjoy your life with a confident and a positive outlook.

Do you live too far away or are unable to get to me? This is not a problem as ONLINE appointments are available.

How does a session work online?

It is really very simple. You need a good internet connection and a quiet place to sit and get comfortable where you won’t be interrupted and you can use a smart phone, tablet, iPad or laptop.

Once we have confirmed an appointment time/day I send out a link and for confidentiality only you have access to it. On a phone or tablet you may need to download the ZOOM app from your app store. Once you click on the link we meet online!

The session runs exactly as it would if you were here with me in my treatment room. Easy!

How do I know if Hypnotherapy Online will work well for me?

Hypnotherapy online or in real life will work if:

*You like/trust your hypnotherapist

*YOU want to make changes

*YOU are open to the experience.

Stress Management

I came to Charlotte for stress management.  It was causing me to drink more alcohol as a method of coping.  The sessions were so relaxing and after the sessions I felt incredibly calm and in control.  The feeling of positivity remained with me and my sleep improved.  The sessions had an increasingly positive impact on my life, equipping me with skills to revisit to keep the feelings of control between sessions.  There is also a recording that you can listen to before bed, which is excellent.
I would definitely recommend  the practice.  I will revisit Charlotte again for top up sessions should the need arise! She is amazing. Kate Torquay

Fear and Phobias

My Daughter attended 6 weekly sessions with Charlotte to help her overcome her fear of needles.

She has to have various injections and blood tests at least once every 3 months. Before going to Charlotte these tests usually ended up being a 2+ hour visit to the hospital which included blacking out and vomiting. Since Charlotte we have had 2 very successful hospital visits for routine injections which we have been able to leave 10 mins after the injection was given. A first for us in 14 years.

My Daughter is very happy with this and would highly recommend Charlotte. She put my daughter at ease and gave her a positive attitude towards facing the needle in the future. Sarah

Depression and Anxiety

I started this looking for help with anxiety and depression, which I had suffered with for many years.
Having completed the course I can honestly say it has gone beyond that, I now sleep so much better, I am more confident and relaxed with a positive outlook on life. I have been able to take up old interests and pursue new ones. I am just a happier person all round and my depression and anxiety is a distant memory.
I would not hesitate to use Charlotte again and highly recommend her to anyone. Sarah, Paignton

Stress

Two months ago I was stressed and unable to cope. Since having weekly hypnotherapy sessions with Charlotte I feel calmer and able to deal with situations in a positive way. Thank you. Annie Torquay

Post-Natal Depression

I have recently completed an 8 week course of treatment with Charlotte at Pebble Ridge Practice. I can honestly say it has totally transformed my life.

When I first attended my initial consultation I was at rock bottom. I had been diagnosed with post-natal depression and was on anti-depressants. I was suffering from poor sleep, total exhaustion, low mood and I had totally lost my confidence. I had totally lost my sparkle, sense of humour and love for life.

Charlotte made me feel completely at ease and explained how her sessions would work and the idea behind 'emptying my stress bucket' which currently was over loaded and this wasn't helping my symptoms. I attended each week and listened to a CD she gave me every night before bed.

Every week I could see improvements in my symptoms. I was sleeping better, thinking better and was in control. By week 6 I felt confident to begin weaning off my anti depressants  (as agreed by my GP) and I was feeling great.

I can't thank Charlotte enough for all she has done for me, I worry where I might be now had I not taken that first step by booking an initial consultation with her. With Charlotte's help I am feeling better than ever, happy, enjoying life again and I have my sparkle back.

I would recommend anyone who is suffering from post natal depression, anxiety, fears or phobias to get in touch with Charlotte. You won't regret it.

Smoking

I just wanted to say a big thank-you! After just one of your therapy sessions, I found it so much easier to get off the dreaded cigarettes.
For years I’ve been trying to give up, using every method going. You really helped me to understand the reasons why I smoke, and the therapy has helped me to give up without the need for any other nicotine replacement therapy. Its been months since I last smoked! I will certainly recommend you to others. Alex Paignton Devon.

Bereavement

A long catalogue of personal challenges and bereavement had left me with appalling sleep habits and a tendency to comfort eat. A close friend suggested that Charlotte may be able to help. After a free consultation I knew that this was going to be the answer to my 3.00 am prayers. Charlotte is extremely professional and yet very approachable, the sessions were conducted over SKYPE which is remarkably easy and effective.
From the first session my sleep pattern improved dramatically. Charlotte explained the nature and importance of good quality sleep and had provided an MP3 for use when sleep was eluding me.
12 sessions with Charlotte saw me getting good quality sleep every night and getting so much more achieved in my day. I have subsequently lost weight without even noticing it. 6 months later and I'm a completely different person, I can not thank Charlotte enough for the difference she has made in my life. I now sleep well without feeling the need to tell everyone, as it's become the norm. Personal relationships have improved as a result of our sessions, I'm much calmer and more reasonable. I feel able to deal with any challenges calmly, rationally and immediately.
Thank you Charlotte, my guardian angel! Nicola Winchester. All SKYPE appointments

Insomnia


I spoke with Charlotte as I had been struggling to get any quality sleep for a number of years and I was running out of ideas on how to improve my sleeping (having tried all the usual ways). Charlotte suggested that I have a free and no obligation consultation with her, so she could determine if she may be able to help. I must admit I was sceptical, but felt that getting better sleep was needed and was willing to give it a go. Following the free consultation, Charlotte explained that she felt she could help me,
as well as why she thought this and how she could do it. In short, this was a form of 'trance' to help me change my mind-set and allow me to properly relax and gain more (and better) sleep, as well as improving other aspects of my life such as decision making and control.
Once again I was sceptical of this, I've never really believed in hypnotherapy or even heard of this 'trance' method. I am pleased to say that after session 3, it was becoming clear that not only was I starting to sleep better and for longer, but I was getting up earlier and felt more energetic. This trend continued until after about 7 or 8 sessions, when
Charlotte said that she felt I didn't need any more sessions but if I ever felt I needed more help, to give her a call.Two months since the sessions ended, I am still sleeping better and haven’t needed to call (but know I can if I need to).
Thank you Charlotte, as improving my sleep has benefited my life in so many other ways. John

General Therapy

After suffering a traumatic neurological disorder last summer which left me immobilised. I spent months going through the NHS system expecting to be cured. Eventually I was tired of being referred on and waiting for weeks and months for appointments, I received no help at all. My progression was very slow. Eventually I decided to take the matter into my own hands and looked into therapy. I found Charlotte and thank goodness I did. At the first appointment, I arrived using the walking frame that I’d needed for over 4 months. I came home and never used it again moving on to a walking stick which I gradually used less. I had 9 treatments and was able to walk unaided. I cannot put into words how very happy I am. Please don’t hesitate if you need help. I have my life back. Marilyn, Paignton.

Fear/Phobia Thunder

Just wanted to say a big 'THANK YOU'. We have just put all your hard work to the test today and I can't believe it has worked!! It has been at the back of my mind all day to check the weather as I was aware there may be storms. I have resisted telling myself that if a storm comes it will come, and no amount of checking will change that. I was looking out of the window when I saw a big flash of lightening. I kept calm, I didn't run or hide. I have just carried on as normal. I still have butterflies in my tummy and a little nervous feeling but I am SO PROUD of myself today. Thank you so much for helping me beat this!

Hypnobirthing

A big thank you to Charlotte for all her support in the run up to the birth of our daughter Rosie. I had 1-2-1 support with Charlotte which included visualisations, breathing exercises and downloadable MP3’s which I listened to both at home and during the early stages of labour.

Charlotte enabled me to have the best birth which I was able to achieve through a pool birth and a little gas and air. The calming atmosphere, breathing techniques and visualising the birth I wanted, helped me to deliver Rosie naturally, calmly and without causing stress to her or myself. I would recommend her to others seeking to bring their baby into the world in a calm and natural way.

Reducing Stress and Anxiety in Autism

In common with many young people with Autism, my son has bouts of depression. However, turning 18 and becoming an "adult" hit him hard and he went to a very dark place. Charlotte has been amazing, he is now back to his bright self and even more confident and ready to try different things than ever before. Without Charlotte I really don't know if he would still be here. That's not over exaggerating. Using Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, she has been able to gently show him his own strengths and prepared him to face the future. He still listens to the recording every day and Charlotte has given him the skills to communicate with others like never before. I cannot recommend Charlotte highly enough. Elizabeth
