When you are feeling overwhelmed or vulnerable, you need to find a caring and empathetic therapist you can trust to guide you through these challenging times. Look no further.
I’m Elisabeth – an experienced, fully-qualified hypno-psychotherapeutic counsellor based in Darwen, Lancashire. As well as working with clients in my quiet therapy room, I can also offer online sessions and home visits. My aim is always to offer the best service to my clients, meeting them where they are in their lives and drawing on my counselling skills to really listen. From there, I use an integrated approach to choose whichever psychotherapeutic modality would be most effective for rapid change.
Hypnotherapy is my preferred technique for shifting any subconscious obstacles. My clients usually know what they want to achieve but struggle to utilise their inner strength. With gentle hypnosis, we can clear the pathway towards success.
I can help with a wide variety of issues including stress and anxiety, low self-esteem and lack of confidence, phobias, insomnia, pain management and tinnitus. Sessions cost £50, both face to face and online, and are approximately an hour long. I will often give you a free MP3 recording of any hypnosis that I have made for you to listen to at home. I also offer single sessions for smoking cessation which last about 90 minutes and cost £70. Home visits may incur additional cost for travel.
For further details of any of the services I have to offer, check out my website or get in touch.
If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition, please consult your GP for advice before starting any new therapies.
In addition to my private practice, as a former teacher I work in schools to support members of staff with their mental wellbeing and provide a variety of staff training packages including stress management, imposter syndrome and menopause.
As a big advocate of the power of nature for positive mental health, I also offer walking therapy sessions in the beautiful Lancashire countryside.
Over the last few years I have worked alongside the Better Hearing Clinic to provide tinnitus sufferers with a more holistic approach called Tinnitus Perception Therapy.
