Hi, my name is Michaela Addis (call me Ki) and thank you for taking the time to look through my website. I am a professional hypnotherapist based in West Bridgford, ready to help you awaken your inner confidence and potential.
I have a Diploma in Hypnotherapy & Counselling Skills, an Advanced Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy, a degree in Psychology and over 12 years experience helping people deal with their internal barriers, particularly around stress and anxiety. I have extensive experience working with young people in a secondary school setting as a teacher and in a range of roles within pastoral care, safeguarding and leadership.
I am a Registrant Member of The National Hypnotherapy Society, which is the only hypnotherapy organisation with a register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. Being a member of this society demonstrates my commitment to high professional standards, to enhancing safety and delivering a better service. I am fully insured and hold enhanced DBS clearance. I am a member of The British Psychological Society, which means I am part of the UK's biggest community of psychologists.
What I love about hypnotherapy is the wide range of issues that can be treated in a relatively short space of time, not to mention the pleasant and relaxing experience for clients during the process itself. Who couldn't do with more relaxation in their life?
Hypnotherapy involves deep relaxation and achieving a trance like state in order to access your subconscious mind. The subconscious is powerful and limitless but not under our conscious control but through hypnosis, it is possible to change unwanted feelings and behaviour and replace them with more positive beliefs and responses.
You are fully in control throughout hypnosis and cannot be made to do anything you do not want to do. Whilst we may think that we find moments of relaxation in our busy lives, this is often not the case and our brains usually remain highly alert and active. Hypnosis achieves a true state of deep relaxation and inner calm and most people feel refreshed and relaxed after their session. Add to this the fact that it can also help you to achieve your goals and it makes for a fantastic form of therapy.
Each session will be specifically tailored to you personally in order to ensure the greatest possible chance of success. If you are ready, willing and able to make positive change then hypnotherapy could very well be the answer. It is important to keep in mind that hypnotherapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix and as such, a "cure" can never be guaranteed.
However, where a client is committed to change and wants things to improve then there is more chance of you achieving your desired results.
Please get in touch if you would like to know more and I will happily answer any questions you may have.
