Counselling, hypnotherapy & Parenting Support Services

Relieving stress and supporting parents to help their  children to reach their full potential. .

Understanding young and adult minds

Welcome to my website. I hope you find it informative and it gives you a clear idea of the sevice I provide. I am an itegrative therapist, which in plain terms means that I combine psychology knowledge with different types and styles of therapy including Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapeutic Counselling to find the best way of supporting my clients.

My work has two strands, one is working with adults dealing with their personal mind related issues. I deal with a variety of conditions such as anxiety,  phobias (irrational fears), exam anxiety, performance anxiety, excessive stress, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, unhealthy habits, low motivation, etc. The other strand, is working with parents who have concerns over their children’s behaviour, learning, development or mental health issues. I have personal and professional experience of dealing with children in the autistic spectrum, with ADHD, deafness, dyslexia and  dyspraxia.

Why “Mind in Focus”?

I chose this name for my website because for many years I have been focusing on understanding how the mind works. I sincerely believe that  undersanding at a basic level, how our minds function, helps to change any faulty thoughs and habits that cause mental stress or unhealthy behaviour. It also helps to maximise learning potential and resilience. Focusing on understanding how children’s minds develop, learn and adapt to the world, can help us to contribute to their healthy development, helping children to learn better and to become more independent and resilient in an increasingly challenging world.

My mother approached Gloria as I was experiencing panic attacks, these were becoming a problem especially during exam time and in social occasions. I attended around 4 sessions of hypnotherapy followed by some sessions of mindfulness. I was very sceptical about seeking help but, I have to say, that Gloria’s relaxed, confident and very discreet approach made me feel completely at home straight away. Only after a couple of sessions, I felt a dramatic reduction on my panic attacks, which seem to have faded away.  Gloria has also helped me to learn how to deal with anxiety and general stress management during exam times and changes in my family. I would recommend her sessions to anyone needing to cope with stress and anxiety during difficult times.
