Are you concerned about your financial future?
Do you worry about the recession?
In an interview do you feel confident you would stand out against the competition?
Do you feel confident that your job is secure?


Tough Times Ahead

In the current economic climate many people are becoming increasingly stressed about their financial future. Every week there seems to be more and more doom and gloom in the news about the struggling economy. Banks and even small countries are going bankrupt. Many companies are going bust, and others are tightening their financial belts, reducing costs where possible, freezing recruitment and making staff redundant. As a result fewer jobs are available, and competition for them increases, making it harder to get a job, and harder to hold onto onto the one you've got.

When times get tough its quite natural for you to become more and more stressed and worried. Stress, worries, limiting beliefs, negative thinking, low confidence, poor self esteem, poor relationship skills, insomnia, depression and unhelpful coping strategies all work against you. They reduce your effectiveness, performance and decision making ability.

Downward Spiral

The problem with stress and anxiety is that they often make the very thing your are worried about even worse. For example, lets say you are worried about your job security. Because of this worry, you might find your concentration, judgement, confidence, ability to sleep and clarity of thought are affected. Which means your performance at work becomes compromised further. As you feel less and less able to do your job, you worry more about it, and so the cycle continues. Actually taking you deeper and deeper in a downward spiral towards the very thing you are most worried about happening.

Are you performing at your best?

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
Henry Ford

Ironically this is also the very time in your life when you need to be performing at your absolute best. If you are not then you could lose out as your competition races ahead of you and takes the job and business that could be yours.

Resilient people view problems as challenges to be overcome, and turn difficulties into opportunities. They perservere despite obstacles and setbacks. They have a positive outlook and they believe in themselves and their abilities. Having this positive attitude allows them to stay ahead of the competition, think smarter, work smarter, be on the ball, be open to opportunities, and stay flexible and creative.

If you could improve yourself what would you change?

Would you like to...?

  • Stay ahead of the competition
  • View problems as challenges to be overcome
  • Turn difficulties into opportunities
  • Be able to perservere despite obstacles and setbacks
  • Have a positive outlook
  • Build confidence in yourself and your abilities
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Think smarter
  • Work smarter
  • Be open to opportunities
  • Stay flexible and creative
  • Reduce limiting beliefs
  • Overcome procrastination
  • Improve your relational skills
  • Manage your emotions behaviours


Upward Spiral - Finding a solution

Every small change at the root level of belief will produce amazing changes in behavior and performance.
Harry Alder, author

When it comes to personal problems you can either focus on the problem itself and get yourself mired deeper and deeper into it, or you can focus on finding a solution and begin to turn what was once a problem into an opportunity to improve yourself.

A solution is available at the Inner Changes Manchester practice and is highly individualised to your exact requirements, so the exact form of treatment and number of sessions will vary from person to person. Improvements can often be made in as little as 4 to 8 sessions for specific issues, for more deep rooted or complex problems, 8 or more will be required.

The approach is integrative, combining the best elements of Life Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Contemporary Psychotherapy, CBT, Stress Management, Self Relations Psychotherapy Counselling and Hypnotherapy which are individually recognised as highly successful ways of changing peoples behaviours and perceptions and I'm sure you can imagine the amazing benefits of combining these powerful processes, allowing you to quickly and easily change the thoughts and behaviours you currently have so you just find yourself changing in beneficial ways.  

I am a professional and experienced Solution-Focused Integrative Psychotherapist, Life Coach, Licensed NLP Master Practitioner and Advanced Hypnotherapist. I was trained by some of the best trainers in the United Kingdom including Paul McKenna, and Dr Richard Bandler - the creator of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). I combine all my skills and experience to produce a treatment that is unique to you and your needs. So that I can help you to change in the most effortless ways possible.

Each session lasts 1 hour (see the consultation fees page for standard session prices and discounts.)

Just how much is your health and well-being worth to you?

Booking is easy

I recommend booking an Initial Consultation/Assessment Session first. This gives us the chance to begin to explore your issues and your requirements further, give you honest answers to any questions you might have, give you a realistic estimate of the number of sessions you may require and begin the process of change.

I practice from a consulting room in my home located in Chorlton-cum-Hardy in South Manchester, close to junction 7 & 8 of the M60 and the end of the M56.

When you are ready to make the inner changes you need, simply phone me on 0161 881 4333 or to make an appointment now.

Please consider joining the email mailing list to be kept up to date with upcoming events.

I offer online scheduling using BookFresh
