Hypnotherapy Life Coaching Stress Management Fertility & Hypnobirthing
My name is Gill Matthews and I am a professional Hypnotherapist, Life Coach and Stress Management Consultant. I practice in Barton on Sea, New Milton, between Southampton and Lymington in Hampshire and Bournemouth and Christchurch in Dorset. I offer Coaching sessions face-to-face or online via Skype or Facetime.
I am a Senior Practitioner and Peer Supervisor with the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and have been in full-time practice for 30 years. It is now scientifically recognised that stress is the pre-cursor to the malaise of humanity, my expertise lies in all stress related issues known to man, woman and child!
I am an Educational Performance Practioner, therefore I can help with study, exam performance and educational stress in adults and children.
As a qualified Fertile Body Method Therapist I use hypnosis with the mind-body approach for all fertility issues, IVF and hypnobirthing. I trained with Dr. Brian Roet (former GP and Anaesthetist) in Pain Relief and Stress Management.
I am a Registered Hypnotherapy professional with the CNHC (an Accredited Register approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care) and a recognised PruHealth Practitioner.
'If you are not willing to risk the unusual,
you are going to have to settle for the ordinary.'
In my work I use the many approaches I have learned during my years in practice to help you find solutions to issues and problems you may be experiencing, to educate and empower you to grow, flourish and reach your full potential. There is rarely a single way of treating a problem, even if it comes with a nice clear label. I will work with you to achieve your aims and your goals. You will always be treated as the totally unique person you are because you perceive life your own way!
The other aspect of sessions with me is that I will listen. How often do you get the undivided attention of another person with the time to explore exactly who you are, without judgement?
'We not only can't separate the mind from the body, but we can't change one without changing the other.
Our perspectives on life can have a huge impact on our emotional and physical health.
Sometimes a slight shift in thinking can make a huge difference.

"I found Gill following a severe bout of depression. I'd suffered a breakdown. I wanted to habituate to the tinnitus that I had developed as a result of this dark time. At the lowest point I had ever experienced in a lifetime of low points and periods of depression I decided to give something a bit different a go. I had been prescribed antidepressants throughout my life and I had found myself on them again at this time, but I was getting worse, the tinnitus was becoming more terrifying and I had to try something I considered at the time to be radical. It wasn't radical at all, it was exactly what I needed. At the end of my first phone call to Gill I knew I had made a good decision.
It would be hard to condense my entire experience or treatment into a few paragraphs and to be honest it wouldn't be right to. The therapy I received was of a highly personalised nature, tailored to me and my own experiences. I'd had CBT before through the NHS and after my time with Gill I realise that my previous experience of therapy was very clinical and impersonal, literally given leaflets on a general run down of depression and anxiety.
I would love to go on about my journey but it's a long story. Gill helped me in ways I didn't know possible, not only to understand myself but to provide me with techniques and 'tools' to combat my demons. Techniques that work. Tools I use to this day.
The time I spent with Gill was absolutely essential to my recovery. The best thing about it is that I know I will never need antidepressants again. I've learned through Gill and I've got to say my own hard work that I possess the knowledge and techniques to help myself in the future to stay out of any more depressions.
Oh, and the tinnitus is no longer a problem!"
