'Helping you use the power of your own mind'
Hello, my name is Zandra Russell, and I am a fully registered and insured Clinical Hypnotherapist and Stress Management Practitioner based in Ayrshire, Scotland. I have a local practise at the Haven Holistic & Hypnotherapy Centre where I meet and help my face to face clients with a variety of concerns and conditions.
I came to Hypnotherapy in 2016 when I decided I needed a change of direction in my life. I had worked for many years in the private sector as an Accounts Administrator and Manager and previous to that I was a Secondary School Teacher, teaching Business and IT.
Complementary therapies have always interested me, in particular hypnotherapy, which I received myself years earlier for a travel phobia. I have struggled on and off for many years with the symptoms of chronic stress and anxiety so I am well aware of the benefits of hypnosis when dealing with these uncomfortable and sometimes distressing symptoms, hence my study of stress management.
I always try to ensure that sessions are focussed on the client's goal. To do this I use a variety of protocols to ensure the focus is on finding the solution to the underlying issues. We all have the solution to our own problems, it sometimes just takes a little help to find the resources required and the confidence to use them. It is my job to help you to do that.
