Hypnotherapy Psychotherapy Stress Management Fertility & Hypnobirthing
My name is Gill Matthews and I am a professional Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist 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 32 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!
There is significant scientific evidence suggesting that the mind has a direct effect on the body ... both for better and worse. Research demonstrates that we can cause our bodies to be sick just by the anticipation of a future event or the memory of a past experience.
In both cases, it is our thoughts that are creating powerful chemicals of stress to alter most of the systems in our body. So what we think about and the intensity of these thoughts directly influences our health, the choices we make, and our quality of life.

I am an Educational Performance Practioner, therefore I can help with study, concentration, confidence, 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.

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? Evolve into your best you, find the awesome person you really are.
'We not only can't separate the mind from the body, but we can't change one without changing the other.

If there is any area of your life that you would like to 'shift' pick up the phone or email me ... the treatments I can offer are an effective way of helping you to make lasting, beneficial changes!
Symptoms are nature's warning lights and nature has an unlimited supply of replacement bulbs.
If we seem to be failing to get what we want out of life or are finding it difficult to relate to other people, there are two fairly obvious choices open to us. We can wait for the world and other people to change or we can learn how to change ourselves.
The fact is that most of us have a sphere of identity that we have been conditioned by fear and ignorance to fail to explore, a veritable treasure house of self-understanding and health intelligence that is part of our birth right, just waiting to be claimed.
It is never too late to claim it.

Here is a small sample:
The first moment I met Gill I knew I'd come to the right place, she is extremely warm and welcoming which put me at ease straight away.
I had a difficult childhood which Gill helped me unravel and connect to my inner child thus answering many questions as to why some of my adult behaviours were the way they are today. Gill guided me through hypnosis, which for some may sound daunting but let me assure you Gill is first class at putting you at ease, is very professional and gently lets you make your own way, at a pace that is structured and tailored to you.
Gill also provided coaching over the time we worked together, which was also incredibly helpful. I am still in touch with Gill and will continue to see her from time to time, even if things are going extremely well, just to check in and enjoy her company. One thing is for sure you never leave her without something new to ponder and grow !
Speaking from a personal perspective, Gill goes above and beyond with a genuine care, empathy and wholehearted aim to help people along their journey. I wouldn't be where I am today without the work we did together last year and the roads of opportunity she led me to.

"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!"
"I brought my seven year old daughter along to see Gill primarily because of her deep fear of the sea and generally low sense of self esteem. Following our session, my daughter immediately showed signs of improved mental strength and her self esteem grew enormously. She now tackles new things with vigour and is more likely to take chances without fear of failure. She finds great happiness in playing in the sea and has brushed off her previous fears. She regularly uses the techniques shown to her by Gill to help manage her emotions and feels in control and empowered. We can't believe what a difference an hour has made to her life and her future."
This poem is about finding yourself again after a relationship breakup, but when I read it now it also really resonates with me in relation to the process Gill is guiding me through, finding the connection with my inner child and generally being true to myself where I was perhaps more concerned with conforming to life's expectations of me before."
The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the others' welcome
and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was yourself.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you
all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
