Metaphorically speaking, bridges allow us to travel between where we find ourselves and the places where we wish to be.
This premise was behind the establishment of Bridges Clinical Hypnotherapy Services. We make the statement “bridges the gap” using the present tense because while the past is something we cannot change, we have every opportunity right now to make changes that can result in a better tomorrow for each and every one of us.
After having worked in the corporate world for some time, I discovered the benefits of hypnosis quite accidentally. This led to an interest and subsequent passion for the many benefits hypnosis can offer.
The more I learned about hypnosis, the more convinced I became that this modality is something that everyone should have the right to access and a personal desire to share this valuable tool with as many individuals as I can was developed.
