Sophie ParkerHypnotherapy therapist
Hello, my name is Sophie and I'm a cognitive hypnotherapist, and the founder of The Inner, a mind health and wellbeing practice based in West London, and online.
What I do
I use Cognitive Hypnotherapy to guide clients to connect with their unconscious, so they can free themselves from patterns of behaviour that may be holding them back. I believe that the unconscious is our inner power and the key to eliciting change.
In addition to individual therapy sessions, I also run hypnobirthing courses to help provide mothers and their partners with the tools and techniques to creative a positive and calm experience into parenthood, from pregnancy to birth and beyond.
What is Cognitive Hypnotherapy?
Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a modern, holistic and flexible approach influenced by cognitive theory, neuroscience, evolutionary psychology and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). It utilises a range of techniques and tools including Timeline Regression, EMI (Eye Movement Integration), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique or Tapping), among many others to equip and empower the mind to resolve and fix its own issues.
How I can help
If you're feeling stuck, I can to help with things that may be affecting the way you think and feel about things in your life, from stress and anxiety to negative behaviour and habits including issues related to confidence and low self-esteem.
I think you'll be surprised about the different things I could help with, and how quickly you start to observe changes in how you think and feel after we start working together.
I am wholeheartedly committed to the clients I work with, which is why I only work with a handful of people at any one time. Before we agree to work together, we will have a conversation on the phone to see whether I am the right person to coach and support you. My goal is to ensure that you progress, which is why I only work with clients if I feel confident that I can help elicit positive and lasting change.
The conversation isn't a test, the fact is you wouldn't buy a pair of shoes first before checking it fits - so the call is also for my clients, as much as it is for me. I want you to be sure that you feel 100% certain I can give you the help and support you need to achieve your goals.
