Louise Price - Blaenau Gwent Hypnotherapist
Louise Price - My Growing Space
I have a broad range of skills and experience, which enables me to tailor my sessions to effectively meet your individual needs. Whether it is for a specific issue, or personal development. I specialise in anxiety and stress management, bereavement and post traumatic stress disorder.
I have a particular interest in working with clients who have experienced significant life changing events, such as bereavement, relationship and health issues and major stress related incidents. With a nursing and patient safety background, my many years of experience providing emotional support and knowledge of health-related issues, informs my practice.
I have a forward focused approach, where we expand upon what is already working for you, how you would like to feel and how you would like your life to be. My sessions are about making things as easy as possible, to enable positive life change to be achievable and sustainable for you. I use a combination of hypnosis, counselling skills, coaching and relaxation techniques and have helped many clients very effectively with this approach.
If you would like to find out more about how I can help you, please don't hesitate in contacting me.
" I was lucky to have met you....you have a gift"
"Louise helped me greatly to move through the grieving process and a family funeral in the first weeks. Her approach to my anxiety was soothing and reassuring and her wise counselling applied techniques and therapies were reassuring and easy to embrace. With time and patience, she gradually helped me to get off tranquilisers then sleeping tablets with no adverse effects. Just soothing relaxation and breathing therapies, which enabled me to rebuild my life over the following months. Without Louise things may have been far different. The inside of a secure unit was not a place for recovery for me, but her empathetic counselling skills and reassuring techniques have made such a difference to my life. The sessions have helped me to move on with my life and feel grateful for what I have and who I am"
"I just wanted to get in touch! You may remember that I hated my job, but after seeing you I felt something take over me. So, I quit and decided to go back to University and am now training to be a teacher, and loving every single day! I’ve also lost 2.5 stone and am half a stone away from the 3 stone I wanted to lose when I first started seeing you. So really, it’s just a huge thank you, but I owe you so much more! This past year has been so positive and happy for me, and I truly believe that was because I started the year off by meeting you"
"You've taught me so much over the last few weeks and helped me to deal with and overcome my anxieties and I can't thank you enough"
"Thank you for guiding me in the right direction. I couldn't have done it without you! I feel so much better about myself and my life"
