Welcome to VanessaHammond.com

Queens Gate Hypnotherapy

Here at VanessaHammond.com my aim is for you to find the talking therapy that most suits you. You will be given the time and space to consider your concerns and then the choice to explore them in sessions of counselling or coaching. The important first step is to be considering doing something about those troublesome issues so that you can reduce the impact they have on your life.  By facing your issues and talking about them, you can reduce their intensity and live more comfortably.

With Counselling you can...

  • Explore feelings of anger, anxiety, vulnerability, depression or stress
  • Make sense of your life, its meaning and your identity
  • Take time to explore addictions and habits
  • Take time to heal following past abuse
  • Grieve for losses in your life

With Coaching you can...

  • Move towards improved wellbeing and happiness
  • Review your life, your values and your priorities
  • Find the motivation to push yourself into action
  • Fulfil your potential
  • Define success and what that means for you
