I was introduced to hypnotherapy when I was suffering from bereavement and work-related stress and was desperately looking for help. I was in a very demanding job which no longer made me happy and was becoming increasingly depressed. I had watched my partner die from cancer and was in a career that left me no time for myself or my family. I had tried counselling which certainly helped in terms of being able to identify my underlying issues, but I was looking to transform my life and take control in a measured way. Hypnotherapy, mindfulness and meditation are what stood out head and shoulders above the rest for me in terms of the transformation. Developing an approach with hypnosis helped me gain a much healthier approach to my life and my health.
As a result, I saw my wellbeing as a priority. I approached this systematically through yoga, regular workouts at the gym, mindfulness/meditation and hypnotherapy.
I felt so much more empowered that I went on to qualify, first in teaching yoga and then in cognitive hypnotherapy. As a result, I set up Hamilton Holistic so that I could help others to achieve the life changing transformation that I have experienced. I feel so lucky to do a job that I love and in which I can help others to transform their lives.
