Controlling Relationships and Abuse

Controlling relationships are damaging

I have a special interest in helping people to overcome the effects of controlling and abusive relationships. I have made a
special study of the techniques which some people use to control others. By studying these methods and understanding the underlying principles, I am able to help people recover from this kind of damage.

People who have been victimised in this way often suffer severe anxiety due to living in fear for many years. 

This includes people who have
broken free from extreme religious cults. (I do not impose my own spiritual
beliefs on anyone. I deal only with the psychological damage which certain
individuals and organisations inflict in order to keep control of members and discourage them from leaving).

Controlling and abusive relationships often cause relationship problems. This can be deliberate, because the abuser doesn't want their victim to enjoy relationships with any other person. Trusting anyone is difficult. In these cases hypnotherapy should be used carefully and gently. If necessary I can use other therapy methods which don't require the client to even close their eyes.
