Who Am I ?

hypnotherapy canterburyI’m a fully and insured qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist , NLP Practitioner and  Coach.

I initially trained and qualified as a coach in 2005 with the CIPD and Oxford School of Coaching and Mentoring in support of a passion to help the leaders and teams I worked with fulfill their full potential.

I have also qualified as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner at the Internationally acclaimed Quest Institute at Regents College in London. I am a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy, and also hold the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) – the first nationally accredited Hypnotherapy qualification. In addition to this I am also a trained Confident Childbirth Practitioner, Eye Movement Integration Accredited Practitioner, and Hypnodieting Consultant.

I now run a private practice for clients wanting to work on a variety of personal challenges. However, in addition I also work with corporate clients on personal and work related issues e.g. presenting confidently, stress management, building self-esteem and managing self-limiting beliefs etc.

I use Cognitive Hypnotherapy and coaching to help my clients, change the things in their lives that have held them back from being the person that want to be, achieving the things that want in life, or living life the way they want to.  I work with in partnership with my clients to help them let go of these limiting thoughts, feelings and behaviours so that can move forward to do the things they want, confidently and live a more fulfilled life.

I run a friendly and relaxed therapy practices in Canterbury, Clerkenwell and Canary Wharf London and Deal that provide a professional service in line with the standards and Code of Ethics of the National Council of Hypnotherapy.

I am passionate about working with people who want to do something to change their experience in life, if there is any part of their life that isn’t working for them, and to fulfil their personal and/or professional potential.  I work with people who are prepared to do something to achieve what they want.  I work with people who are ready for change.  I have the privilege to walk alongside my clients through the journey providing the tools and  opportunities for reflection, learning, growth. So if you are really committed to making changes in your life (even if you don’t know precisely what or how) I  would love to help you with that.

Here’s Some Client Feedback. This is What They Had to Say About My Services.

Nike worked with me on anxieties that have been with me for a very long time, and since working with her, my outlook on life has completely changed. Within a couple of sessions, she made me realise that I was hindering my own success with negative self-talk. Even just making this realisation was empowering, as it suddenly became something that I could make an effort to change.

Through Cognitive Hypnotherapy and coaching, Nike managed to ‘retrain’ my old, unhelpful ways of thinking. It quickly became apparent that she was completely focused on finding a unique solution to my problems, rather than trying to apply a ‘one size fits all’ solution.

One of the best things about working with Nike has been the support in between sessions. I didn’t have a great number of sessions with Nike – but we have been in constant communication since. She coaches me through challenges that I face in life, and always reminds me that I do have the strength to tackle them. I see Nike not only as a coach and hypnotherapist, but also as a friend, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is struggling in any area of their life.

I just wanted to let you know that I made it to my holiday and back again without a panic attack and without any medication to calm me. Even though I still felt a little nervous feeling I did it and was so chuffed with myself and can’t wait to start planning more journeys. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement they really helped

Just wanted to let you know that I have passed all of my exams with good marks. But even more amazingly – I have won an award for having the best marks for the year, (in all the subjects that terrified me). Thank you for all your help – I wouldn’t have made it without you, I was too overwhelmed with it all!

Also, do you remember when I first came to see you I needed help with confidence at work? Well, I’ve just been asked to become a “call-handling coach.” Once training is complete then I’ll be monitoring and coaching long term members of staff as well as the new ones. In my 34 years of working I’ve never done anything like that before

Everything is going so well. Believe it or not. In the last fortnight I have lost a whole stone. I have not touched one bit of junk food, or felt the urge too. Still eating breakfast, lunch and dinner and fruit/veg in between but feel like I have an invisible gastric band, and although I have sensible portion sizes I’m aware of being fuller, quicker, so just leave the rest.

I have just come back from a run and find this is a good time to listen to my recording, whilst I recover on the sofa as the house is peaceful then. I have been aware of how my thoughts are and change them if I feel they are negative. Trying to think of any struggles but really can’t say there have been any.

I can’t thank you enough for what you have done. I really do feel you were exactly what I needed to get things on track.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the help that you have given me over the last few months.

After one session you had enabled me to see why I was suffering from such extreme anxiety which was affecting my day to day life; and gave me the tools to be able to deal with my irrational fears.

The changes I felt; my friends and family saw; after this first session were amazing I felt stronger, more positive; above all in control of myself; my thoughts and feelings. After our second session I had really changed in such a positive way that I was able to control my fears on my own. I listen to the recordings that you made for me most nights. I find these an invaluable source of comfort that I will use forever.

Thank you so much Nike, you have changed my life.
