CBT and Counselling
Have you noticed that sometimes what you think impacts how you feel and what you do? Of course. I imagine that it’s been like a battle. The unhelpful side often wins. Learning to think rationally in a sea of unhelpful thoughts and emotions is like trying to wrestle a shark. With councelling and CBT, wrestling the shark is easy and there’s a time tested method that will help you win, once you know what to do… wrestle the shark on dry land. In other words, with CBT and the right councelling support, you’ll become able to use the methods that you hadn’t thought of before and didn’t know were possible.
Training yourself to think differently, unlike the old “just think positive thoughts”, have been scientifically proven to give your rational self the edge over erratic emotions and habitual negative thinking.
CBT works. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy utilizes time tested tools that have been scientifically developed with an abundance of empirical research, giving you the power over the old unhelpful ways of thinking so that you take true control in a way that’s not only effective, it’s also empowering. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy helps you to see through the dense forest of your own mind. No more rumination! No more believing the nonsense! No more being controlled by negative thinking! This approach isn’t just effective; it’s incredibly empowering that you’ll own the tools to change yourself and those tools will never go away.
I’m just emailing to let you know how my dentist appointment went yesterday.
I’m just emailing to let you know how my dentist appointment went yesterday. So usually I would have been really nervous for the whole day, and then I would have worked myself up to a complete mess by the time I get there – making myself feel sick and faint. Yesterday however, I was not nervous at all in the day (which is unusual as I was off of work so I had nothing to keep my mind busy with). When I arrived at the dentist, I started to get a bit worried, but the staff were really friendly so talking to them took my mind off of it. When my appointment started, I asked to have the numbing gel and if I could listen to music as I wanted to try everything that I could to ensure that I got through it. And thankfully, I did it! I was sceptical beforehand as to whether it would work as i’ve never tried hypnosis before and I don’t know anyone else who has. However, I can definitely confirm that I felt a hell of a lot calmer than I did before, which meant that I managed to get the whole appointment done without feeling nauseous or faint – YAY! I’d like to say a massive thank you for all of your hard work, time and effort that you put into the sessions. Keep up the good work!
I found it really relaxing
I found it really relaxing. I started seeing the changes. Also people around me noticed. With Danny I get along well as a person. When you know someone and you get along well with them you can trust them and when you trust them you can let go of yourself and show them the real you. I think it’s all to his ability in what he does.
When I first met danny he seemed like a pretty
When I first met danny he seemed like a pretty likable sort of person. Danny’s quite a varied practitioner because he uses several different forms (techniques). It definitely helped me cut down on my drinking and my eating. You have to trust the person and the environment but yes, everybody should try it.
I had so much anxiety all the time about spiders
I had so much anxiety all the time about spiders. When I first came in I didn’t really know what to expect but Danny was really welcoming. I had 2 sessions with danny and I felt so relaxed after I’d left. I think Danny’s such a good therapist because he’s very friendly, very warm, he makes you very relaxed and he listens to you…and I think he genuinely cares as well.
I remember thinking Danny was so lovely
I remember thinking Danny was so lovely, he made me feel so relaxed. The process was a really good one a really positive one. And I came out and I threw my cigarettes in the bin and it wasn’t difficult…that’s the really lovely thing about it, it was really easy. He’s just very warm. He’s truly interested in helping people. From a psychologist’s point of view I could see he got right to the core of the issues. I found him easy to talk to, he got it right and I walked out thinking I want to give this man a hug.
In the last year when I haven’t been smoking
In the last year when I haven’t been smoking I haven’t even been thinking about smoking. I feel so much more relaxed now than when I smoked. Danny was really good at understanding what different excuses you use and what the fears are that stop you from stopping smoking. The way he got me to see how I was fooling myself; that helped a lot. A couple of my friends came for hypnotherapy after they saw how easy it was for me.
Dealing with it on your own is not easy and not everyone understands it
Dealing with it on your own is not easy and not everyone understands it. I have learnt through the therapy that I am stronger than I think. I like to call him my fairy godfather. He’s just lovely; he made everything so much easier. I couldn’t have asked for a better person really.
I was struggling with confidence
I was struggling with confidence. I came to see Danny and my next two appearances (exams) have been so much more confident in the chair and my delivery of an answer. If I’m truthfully honest I didn’t think that any of it would work… I have to say that when I left the first session I felt 10 feet tall. I do believe in myself a lot more. My wife even said that I’m a different person. It’s made me a better person. It was fantastic and I know it’s worked for me
Danny was very welcoming and he made me very really relaxed
Danny was very welcoming and he made me very really relaxed. I felt leaving the session that I’d started to sort the problem out. I left with more confidence that I would get back to at least somewhere where I had been. My advice to anyone who’s going through performance challenges or who’s had a knock in their confidence is to talk to Danny. The biggest take away for me has been to regain the self-belief.
I was dreading coming but Danny put me at ease
I was dreading coming but Danny put me at ease. It was calming and that’s when I realized perhaps this is something I should have done a long time ago. The first thing from the first session that we had that stuck with me wasn’t even a methodology or teachings of how to deal with things but just how attentively he listened and that’s the one thing that made me trust Danny enough to open up. After the final session it was just phenomenal. I’d laid my demons to rest and I’d had an opportunity to live my life how I wanted to and not be driven by something that wasn’t me.
I’d smoked for over 10 years
I’d smoked for over 10 years…and I could never imagine myself living any sort of life without smoking. After I left the room…I felt like a brand new person. I didn’t think about cigarettes; I didn’t crave them. I just felt brand new and really eager to start living my life without my smoking addiction.
