In Tanya’s own consulting room, she likes to work with lots of humour and friendliness. Many of her clients report an elevation in their moods just on their first visit to her. Working with a therapist doesn’t have to be all pain and hard work, it can be eased by the therapist humanising the sessions. Many of her clients have expressed concerns about their fears of having to go and look at painful stuff from the past, or having to make scary decisions about the future. The secret is to understand these thoughts and limiting beliefs, and once balanced, changes can happen automatically. Then her clients can’t wait to get stuck in!
Tanya may conduct an initial consultation over the phone. This helps her to gather the necessary information needed to make sure she offers the right therapy to the right client. This also helps the client feel comfortable talking to her and helps get a better insight into their own lives and a greater understanding that their life really can change. While Tanya encourages her clients through the therapy, she also believes in education. Helping her clients to understand some of the psychological workings of their mindset can help greatly.
Many people find the thought of visiting a therapist off-putting because they don’t know what to expect. It can be a little scary to some, to say the least!
Whilst Tanya can’t say how ‘all’ therapists conduct their sessions, she can say that while being a lecturer and teacher of clinical hypnosis and psychotherapy, she took great time in helping her students understand that putting their clients at ease is essential.
