Coaching for Better Life Quality

Birth

Life can be viewed as a sequence of very distinct stages. The birth of a new child is probably the most significant. Of course we don’t work with babies, but we do work with parents to be, who have the hope or dream of a child.

Think of coaching as a chance for re-birth of all that is great about you. We can help you get clear on where you’re heading, and to be your true-self again, brimming with all the same confidence with which you entered this world in the first place.

Coming Of Age

Growing up does have its difficulties, particularly when you get into your teenage years. There’s exams, social peer pressures, and all those hormones, combined with the slings and arrows of social media and the internet. Many teenagers feel totally isolated and misunderstood, and they struggle to express what is really causing them difficulty and hardship.

We work with young adults from adolescence through to university and beyond. We help them get on top of personal issues, gain confidence, make good relationships, and cultivate a healthy self image and expectation from life. We love this, because we also get the opportunity early on to give them the tools they need to stay relaxed and focused, to go on and achieve their dreams in life.

We typically work with youngsters and young adults from age 14 upwards. If you are under 18 years of age, we will require parental consent to meet with you. Get in touch to find out more.

Manhood

Whether you’ve had a good male role model or not, stepping up to become the man you want to be is not always easy. To do well in your career, your relationships, and your chosen pursuits you really don’t need to be help back by negative thought patterns that can develop due to setbacks and challenges that you face.

You might be a high professional achiever with very strained personal relationships. Equally, you may be a great husband or father, but lack the confidence to get a satisfying job. Or you may be struggling with some personal issue or turmoil that leaves you feeling way too stressed to cope. It doesn’t matter where you’ve come from, but it does matter where you are going.

We want you to get the most from life in all areas, so get in touch and to learn more and see if you would like to explore your potential further with us.

Career

Many people fall into a routine of life and don’t find their true calling. You don’t have to have a high career focus to live a meaningful and happy life. However, there may just be a few things that are holding you back from really stepping up your life and your earnings potential.

Confidence is generally the major stumbling block. This combined with how you manage your stress levels, and stay positive and focused in the moment will often determine your outcomes. If you don’t value yourself, then you will probably also have weak boundaries, and give way to the bullies.

We believe that you can do better, and have seen this through the 100s of clients we’ve worked with.

Partnership

Nothing is more important than the connections we make with others. This is true in business as well as in our private lives. Human beings simply cannot be fulfilled and happy without establishing trust and love in relationships with others.

We help people with all aspects of their relationships, friendships, family dynamics, and romance. You might be single and looking for help with dating and eventually finding your perfect match. You may be in a stagnant marriage and feel like you don’t know where to turn to be happy again. Or anything in between.

We help people have the confidence to create the connections that their heart desires, with respect, compassion, love and freedom to be themselves at the same time.

Womanhood

As a woman you certainly have a lot of hats to wear; Mother, Sister, Partner, Daughter, Professional, and don’t forget the being YOU hat. Women have to learn to allow themselves more time and freedom, so they’re not wearing all the hats at the same time!

You have to be clear, which role you’re in, and make sure to come back to yourself at every opportunity, before being pulled in the next direction. Keeping this balance right means not only putting you first after 21:00 when the day is done, but making this your norm.

There’s always enough time when you know how to structure and reconcile these things in your mind. Strong boundaries are not only healthy for you, but they offer clarity and security to those around you too. Living a wonderful life is about quality, not quantity, and you simply must take your own needs seriously. After all, you’re already good enough. You don’t have to be perfect to have balance, love, laughter, and freedom.

Parenthood

Perhaps the next biggest event after our own birth is that of our children. But this can be a rocky road, and we often hear of complications that take place along the way.

If you are having difficulty with starting a family, from conception to coping with the coming of a new child, then we would like to help. We love it when we get happy new born baby pictures and visits from new parents who have overcome their stress and anxiety to learn to relax and enjoy the miracle of child birth.

The stories of mums in particular, who were too stressed to conceive, are probably the most significant and impactful cases we have seen. Get in touch if you’d like to talk further.

New Life

Change is a fact of life, and this is great when we are the ones who are making it happen in a way that is positive. But sometimes it creeps up on us and catches us un-prepared.

You might have spent the last 20 years raising children, or in a job before redundancy or retirement. Or you might have been in a long term relationship that is now over. These are some of the most significant transitions that life has to offer.

We help people to see the potential in these big changes and make a wonderful new start in the next chapter of life. Changing your perspective on your life’s situation has huge benefits, because will then be more open to see new opportunities that exist and are waiting for you. So why not get in touch to find out more.

Retirement

The golden years are reported by many as a time to appreciate and understand the things that are really important in life. Along with a lifetime of experience, it's highly likely that you have achieved a lot of the things you wanted to. But if you do have regrets or unfulfilled wishes, now is the perfect time to get things on an even keel.

What holds many people back may have to do with long-standing trauma's, limiting beliefs, or unhelpful thought habits, that stop us from feeling the joy in life. At this stage in life you have surely experienced a lot. You have a lot of wisdom. It's our job to help you use this to your best advantage.

You can have great relationships, hobbies, careers, interests, and worthwhile experiences today. It doesn’t matter whether you use our help to get you there. What does matter is that you stop wasting time. So why wait?

Hello! I’m Liane

I’ve been a full-time professional hypnotherapist in Stroud, Bristol & Online since my partner Sam and I established our practice in 2012. Since then, we are proud to have worked successfully with over 500 clients covering a huge variety of issues, symptoms, life goals and aspirations. Read More

Hypnotherapy for Symptoms

Stress

Read More

We’ve all been there; over-worked, with the world on our shoulders, and everybody wanting something from us.  Stress can cause sleeping problems, short temper, lost appetite, and obsessive worrying. These are some fairly typical things we hear from clients, but it doesn’t have to be this way. All of these experience can be effectively helped using the right approach.

Anxiety & Fear

Read More

Anxiety can rear it’s head in any context.  The question is whether this is an appropriate reaction under the circumstances. Very often we see people who are persistent worriers, perfectionists, control freaks, worst case scenario thinkers, stressed and unable to cope.  In most cases this relates to how we react to and think about situations (both internal & external), as well as how we see ourselves (self image).

Depression

Read More

We believe that effective help with depression will always involve getting the brain active, whilst cultivating a positive and optimistic outlook to life.  In primitive terms you can think of depression as a great way of conserving energy, when the outlook is bleak, in order to ‘survive the winter’.  This explains the slowing down and hibernation tendencies of depressed people.

Phobias

Read More

Phobias are a form of Anxiety Disorder, very similar to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  They can be defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation, which the affected person will go to great lengths to avoid, typically disproportional to the actual danger posed.

Confidence

Read More

Confidence is the natural state that exists in the absence of things such as fear, worry, or self-doubt.  It is our default position when there is nothing going on, which detracts us from this natural, relaxed & positive state. So how can we return to this state more easily, more quickly, and more importantly, during the times when we need it the most?

Motivation

Read More

We work with a model that encompasses the attitude of mind, as well the physiology of getting motivated, in a way that helps you get clear on what you want, without prescribing any do’s and don’ts. You will lead the way!

Insomnia

Read More

There’s no such thing as not being able to sleep. I know this is controversial, so let’s explain. Sleep is simply a process that occurs when you are relaxed enough. All this time you may have been trying to get to sleep, but all that trying is not relaxing.  Hypnotherapy helps you to relax, and when you are deeply relaxed, you can sleep. Hypnotherapy also helps you to empty your stress bucket, so that you don’t get woken up in the middle of this night with an over active mind.

Social Anxiety

If you’re fed up with feeling like you’re just one of life’s bystanders, not really getting the social life you crave for, you could join one of the 100’s of local people whose lives are now at a whole new level due to the effectiveness of our wide range of anxiety help services.

Addiction

Read More

Effective help with Addictions is about filling the hole that lead you there in the first place, whilst replacing the outdated patterns of thought and behavious that no longer serve you.

Anger

Read More

Anger may be a normal part of our human emotions, but it must be handled with care! Dealing with anger issues and patterns when you are already angry can also be difficult. We believe that ‘letting it out’ is not the answer. This approach is great for practicing the rage reaction, when in fact it is the opposite that is required.

OCD

Read More

Whether you have certain obsessive tendencies or a full-blown Obsessive Compulsary Disorder, there can be no doubt that this is stressful. In fact, stress is a defining feature of the issues caused by OCD.  When you are relaxed, however, you are not obsessive. This is where hypnotherapy comes in. By helping you take one step at a time in a more relaxed manner, you will be able to settle in with any given set of circumstances more readily.

Chronic Pain

Read More

Chronis or persistent pain is essentially caused by a redundant pain message that gets carried to the brain from the effective area. In most cases, you can think of it as an echo from a past accute issue, where the message was once very useful.  After all, it’s good to know that there is an injury that requires attention. Hypnotherapy can help you to override chronic and persistant pain messages by altering your focus and your physiology, so that other messages get put through instead.

"Liane is a great hypnotherapist and listener, she puts things into perspective and makes you feel really relaxed. I left each session feeling better than the last. I would highly recommend her to anyone!"

Hannah

"Changes Welcome helped me during a very difficult time in my life and I will be forever grateful for the support I received. Liane was also a very understanding and insightful therapist and I was very happy to be able to work with her throughout the process. I would recommend Changes Welcome to anyone looking to make changes in their life."

Zak

"I was struggling with positivity and optimism in my daily life. This was causing me to become quite down and depressed. And my lifestyle was being affected.Liane's simple explanation about how my interpretation of the situation was the main problem was very enlightening. That along with weekly sessions for about two months completely changed my perspective in day to day life. I found myself becoming gradually more positive as the weeks went by. After about two months I felt so much more positive, coping with life became much easier with the techniques Liane gave me to deal with stressful situations.I'd definitely recommend Changes Welcome to anyone who wants to make a small or big change to themselves. Whether that be an improvement in your home life, work life or just within yourself. I found it's all applicable through hypnotherapy."

Ben

"A fantastic experience. Liane is very calm and gentle and very positive which rubs off on you. After one session I felt so relaxed with her and could talk about anything. I am so much better now and if it does not last I will go back to her. The bedtime CD is a must it is so relaxing I go to sleep listening to it."

Peta

"I decided to try hypnotherapy as I was experiencing low mood and self esteem plus some anxiety and negative thinking. I didn't really know what to expect but Liane immediately put me at ease and explained very clearly how the brain works and how to care for and manage it. It all makes so much sense when you know how the mind works! Liane showed me some great exercises to help me towards changing my negative thoughts and feelings and her downloadable tracks to listen to in between sessions are a great resource. I would highly recommend the process as a whole and Liane as a therapist, she has a sensitivity and humour that immediately put me at ease and made me feel able to open up to the process."

Vicki

"My 10-year-old son has a strong character and we have had issues around food for a long time.I was surprised when he said he was willing to have a go at hypnotism to help him eat more foods in the run up to going to residential with his school.Liane was very effective at connecting with him in the session. I sat in but I was expected to be silent for the most part. She explained things to him in an age appropriate way but without being patronising. She also got him talking – much to my amazement! He then had around half an hour’s hypnotism each time which went in a flash.After just two sessions we have seen definite improvements and generally just a much more relaxed atmosphere around food. The today I noticed he has lovely long nails… he said he ‘just decided’ to stop biting them. Hurray for Liane!"
