“self-doubt creeps in and that swiftly turns to depression“

THE PROBLEM

Depression can happen to any one of us during our lifetimes. It can cause us to lose track of ourselves and sometimes of our lives too. It is a proper illness with many facets and problems.

  • little little/ to much of 

  • an appetite

  • tearful

  • unhappiness even in things which used to bring you joy

  • loss of interest in things

  • low sex drive

  • low in spirit

  • feelings of suicidal thoughts

  • can‘t be bothered to go on

THE SOLUTION

I will be able to explain to you exactly what is happening in your brain, and why you feel the way in which you do. I will also be able to show you how we can get the old you back again. Solution Focused Therapy will help you to unwind and relax. Using deep relaxation methods and focusing on the positive aspects of your life we will very quickly start to see a difference in your demeanour. You will be given an MP3 which you can use at night to help you to sleep and this will start to have an immediate effect. Your Serotonin levels will start to rise and so will your mood.

If you are currently on medication for depression Solution Focused Therapy is a complimentary therapy to these medications.

This treatment will usually take between 8 to 10 weeks to complete.

Positive Outlook

Alison has been seeing me weekly for low mood. The sessions have really helped me to have a more positive outlook on my life and helped me to relax. I am now able to stop and think about changing my mood to a positive one rather than reverting to old negative behaviours . Alison a a calm, kind and very positive person and is able to put you at ease quickly. She is reliable and professional and I would have no hesitation  in returning to her for more sessions should the need arise. Thank you AlIson for your help !

I Have My Life Back

“So as most of you know depression has been a massive part of my life and has especially made the last couple of yours pretty bleak. Gave up playing rugby, couldn’t work, became an awful husband and a crappy dad BUT that’s all changing and very rapidly right now and it’s all down to Solution focused Therapy. With as little as 8 sessions, I’m comfortably back at work full time, coaching rugby, occasionally playing rugby, and becoming more social again. I couldn’t thank Alison Tomlinson more for returning my life back to me”.

I couldn’t recommend her enough

What a wonderful lady she has helped me so much . I have been seeing Ali for a few months and she has changed me from someone who had no self esteem and no confidence who didn’t sleep and had panic attack’s. To a person who has just started a new job , sleeps like a baby and is full of confidence. I also have been on two flights with no panic attacks . I can not recommend Ali enough and if you have any doubts about getting any help and support don’t , do it now contact Ali you won’t regret it .

Hypnotherapy has changed my life

Well what can I say.... Ali is just an amazing lady. As soon as I attended at Ali Tomlinson Therapy I felt at ease and had instant trust for Ali. I can honestly say hypnotherapy has changed my life...

Having suffered from on and off depression and anxiety for half of my life (15 years) I am finally able to cope with it and overcome and deal with stressful situations. When I first met with Ali she asked me what I truly wanted from this... I said to come off my anti depressants... well guess what.. after 7 years of being on them l am today medication free. Ali has taught me that if you focus on what you want you can get it!!


Don’t listen to doctors and their pharmaceutical money scams.... alternative therapy is honestly just what you need! It also makes all the difference when you find a therapist that truly cares!

To this day I still speak to Ali should I need her... she is always there... for everyone.

Make a difference in your life today and see this wonderful lady.. you won’t regret it
