Jackie Karkeek - Devon Hypnotherapist
Jackie Karkeek HPD, DipCAH, CHBP, NCH, CNHC
Hi, I’m Jackie and I am a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, specialising in anxiety, stress, trauma and PTSD.
The reason I specialise in anxiety and stress disorders, is because it is these conditions that underpin and exacerbate just about every problem issue for which you may be seeking hypnotherapy. So, to deal effectively with your personal issues, we need to begin by dissipating the anxiety state that is keeping you doing the negative activity that you have developed. Once we have achieved that, working together, it becomes more straightforward to subsequently break the habit, or the negative behaviour that you wish to change. This could be anything at all from addiction issues to anger management, weight problems, self-esteem issues to fears and phobias.
I have undergone extensive training in these areas, and in other scientifically researched and positive therapy treatments, such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and Rewind, to ensure I have the most powerful toolbox from which to help you deal with your particular concerns.These latter therapy techniques are widely used to treat PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), phobias and deep-seated trauma and published success rates are extremely positive.
No two people are alike, even if they come stating the same facts about their anxieties and general concerns. We are all completely individual - -our backgrounds, our life-experiences and our beliefs - and as such, no two clients will ever receive the same treatment or therapeutic sessions. Consequently, I tailor a plan individually for every person who comes to seek my help and this, I believe is the reason that I have positive results. I love what I do and am passionate about helping people wherever I can to get back to a place of calm, optimism and confidence in their lives.
Having great rapport between client and therapist, is essential to getting positive results - and to this end, I offer a free half hour telephone conversation, to allow you time to get all your questions answered, to also enable you to get a feeling for who I am and whether you feel you would like to work with me and of course, to ensure that from my side, I believe I am the right choice of clinician to help you to resolve those issues. Usually, well before the end of the 30 minutes, between us, we have those answers.
My best advice to you when choosing your therapist therefore, is that if it instinctively feels right to you, during that conversation - then it probably is! If you would like to find out more about me, please take a look at my website - www.mindinmotion.co.uk - where you will find a short video to show how I can help you, and a few client testimonials.
