Arantxa is passionate about helping people overcome problems or challenges in their life. She specialises in assisting those who are struggling with something by teaching them ways of reducing and managing stress and anxiety, and by giving them the inner resilience and coping strategies to deal with whatever life throws at them. Arantxa’s aim is to equip her clients with a wide range of tools and coping mechanisms to use in their everyday lives. She assists clients with unlocking the obstacles and barriers from the past by connecting with these unpleasant emotions in order to take, at both the unconscious and conscious level, the positives and learning from them and to let go of the negativity.

Arantxa can help with overcoming traumatic events, stress and anxiety, fears and phobias, grief, weight loss, smoking cessation, addictions along with general confidence building and releasing negative emotions which are creating that ‘stuck’ feeling through a mix of Hypnotherapy, NLP and Coaching.

The therapy is tailored to clients’ specific needs and designed to enable them to develop their confidence and skills to manage their life and thrive, both now in the future.

BREAKTHROUGH IN 10 WEEKS

If you’ve been struggling with an ongoing issue that’s keeping you stuck and unable to move forward with your life and be happy.
If you’ve tried several different ways to tackle the issue without success, my “breakthrough in 10 weeks” program might be the answer.

I specialise in working with clients to help them better cope with life pressures, providing them with effective tools to build resilience.

My expertise across different modalities and my unique approach of blending different techniques allows me to tailor therapy the specific to your needs.
I’ve worked with hundred clients from all walks of life, successfully helping them to process and come to terms with traumatic events, overcome anger, stress, anxiety, fear, phobias, grief and addiction, work on confidence building and releasing negative emotions.
My methods work especially well with those in high-pressured environments including Company Directors, Executives and Professional Sports People.

My clients can achieve a major breakthrough in as little as 8-10 weeks on issues they have been trying unsuccessfully to solve for years.

The program lasts for 10 weeks and will take you through a 5 step process of:

1. Identification of the issue where we examine whats currently holding you back and the effect it currently has on you and your life. This will give you an opportunity to better understand the issue and allow me to decide the best therapies to use to help you achieve your goal.

2. The next phase looks at helping you understand where your worries come from, reframing your negative thoughts and understanding that you you have the freedom to control your thoughts and feelings. You will feel empowered to deal with negative emotions and thoughts as and when they arise. During this process I will share some powerful tools and techniques to manage worries that manifest as stress or anxiety.

3. Next we look at consciously shifting your lifting beliefs to help support your desired goals. Through interrupting unhelpful thought patterns with new interpretation and perspectives, we literally rewire you brain for success – allowing you to overcome your personal limitations, boundaries, phobias, fears and even trauma.

4. Understanding your relationship dynamics – we will look into your current relationships and communication patterns you engage in. Looking at any conflicts, confusion or lack. As a result you will be in a position to understand and develop constructive communication channels in all your relationships.

5. Once we have worked through the process we will measure your progress against your first session. We will recap on the tools and techniques and when best to use them. You will end the engagement confident in applying the tools on your own or you may wish to continue meeting to explore any other issues that may have come to the surface during our time together.
