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.

I went to see Gloria at a moment where I felt my life was falling into pieces. For a long time I had struggled with seeking much needed help, but Gloria’s relaxed, sympathetic and professional approach made me feel comfortable straight away. Gloria prepared a program of hypnotherapy sessions and counselling that have been truly life changing. From the first session, I felt I had a clearer mind and felt straight away calmer and much more in control of my feelings.  Gloria helped me to regain my long lost self-esteem, and helped me to approach my feelings without anger or guilt. With her help, I feel stronger, more in control of my feelings and I am steadily regaining a sense of true empowerment.  Her sessions have helped me to look at things from a different perspective and I can say that I feel much happier with myself. Thank you Gloria.
