Hello I’m Gabby, I'm glad you're here.
I'm a Hypnotherapist, Solution Focused Psychotherapist and EFT Practitioner.
Essentially I work with what is going on in your head, your heart and your energy - thoughts & beliefs, emotions & feelings and how they affect us -everything is connected.
Human+Human has evolved from my intention to normalise therapy. We all have 'stuff' to deal with, we may dress it up differently and we experience it in our individual ways through our own unique filters but the 'stuff' is much the same. I want you to know that you don't need to remain in that place, that change is always possible.
As humans we are in constant cycle of evolving and learning. We thrive on connection- it is one of our basic human needs- with our deeper self, with each other and with the world around us - and I want to help facilitate and expand these positive connections.
I'm the middle one of seven children, my dad was a psychiatrist and my mum a nurse, when they met. As the daughter of a Naval Officer, my mum and her family had lived in Singapore and Hong Kong during her teens in the 1950s and her experiences there had a huge impact on her. Both mum and her mum talked frequently of their time in Asia with great passion and encouraged me and my siblings to go and discover it for ourselves. I lived and worked in Bangkok and Hong Kong for six years, before coming back home to stay briefly in London and then to Brighton where I have been for the last 20 years. Mum to two humans, an enthusiastic whippet and two cats; I am a natural nurturer, a quiet observer and a lover of alternative solutions (growing up with six siblings and an array of rescue animals will do that to you).
I have been involved with complementary health for over 18 years and qualified in Reflexology and Indian Head Massage originally, as well as my more recent training in Hypnotherapy, Solution Focused Therapy and EFT (Tapping). My fascination with a more holistic approach to wellness began in my 20s when I was living and working in Bangkok and Hong Kong. I was intrigued by the difference in the Eastern approach to wellness - Thai Massage and Buddhism in Thailand, Ayurvedic principles in India, Chinese Medicine and the theory of meridians and energy in Thailand and Hong Kong. This curiosity led me to question my own western traditions around health that I had been brought up with, and learn about a more holistic approach. Once back in the UK, I started my first training in a meridian/energy based therapy - Reflexology.
My interest in Hypnotherapy, the power of the mind and the concept of looking after my mental health began when I experienced the power of it myself (more about that here ...). I then returned to it to work through other faulty pattern matches in the years that followed. Over time my interest in my own healing journey, evolved into a passion to facilitate transformations for others, similar to those that I had experienced myself. When I discovered EFT, another therapy that works with meridians, (tapping on them rather than putting pressure on points or using needles), I was keen to add it to my toolkit, it blends so well with Hypnotherapy too.
I'd really like to connect with you - whether that is through an introductory call to see if we should work together, a booked session, via my social media pages or one of my upcoming projects,
do get in touch.
