A WOMAN who suffered anxiety whilst working in high pressure sales roles for 20 years and bringing up two children, has opened a new hypnotherapy service in Bromsgrove to help others with the issues she struggled with
Louise Squires has launched Inspired to Change on New Road after studying as a clinical solution focused hypnotherapist.
As well as helping her take back control, it also enabled her to develop the understanding and tools needed to get back the connection with herself and her life.
She said: “I understand how stress can impact every aspect of our lives, leading to weight gain, panic attacks, insomnia and negative self-talk, all common issues that my clients come to see me about.
“I always say ‘I never see the same person twice’.
“One week a client can come in for an initial consultation, in a really bad place, lack of eye contact, head dropped, shoulders hunched.
“Then over the following weeks I see the transformation, head held high, smiling face and a spring in their step.
“This is by far the most rewarding job I have ever had – I’ll never tire of hearing the words ‘you’ve changed my life’.”
Louise starts by asking clients what has been good about their week and focuses on small steps that lead to bigger change.
Her solution-focused hypnotherapy is based on modern, clinically proven, neuroscience-based techniques, helping clients understand how their brains work and why they sometimes ‘get stuck’.
She also teaches them how to get their brain working better for them so they can achieve the outcomes they want by guiding them to find their own solutions to getting their lives on track and feeling positive, confident, motivated and focused.
She prides herself on not having to revisit the past or ‘pick old problems’ and sees clients with a range of issues including anxiety, stress, insomnia, depression, phobias, addictions, smoking, emotional eating and IBS.
The initial consultation is free which allows Louise to gain an understanding of her clients’ issues, explain how hypnotherapy can create the positive changes and most importantly to ensure they feel comfortable working with her to achieve the results they want.
