There are always exceptions in therapy
I can’t treat everything

To every 10 enquiries I receive, at least 2 are exceptions, where I can not or do not work. It’s important to get the correct therapist for the right job, (You wouldn’t see a dentist for a problem with your toes). So although there are many problems we help people with, there are equally health issues which are exceptions and I do not work with hypnosis or need specialist help.

So these are the exceptions for which Penny does not work:

  • Children under 16 – unless it’s a specific phobia like dogs or spiders, or exam stress based.
  • ADHD – unless they are managing it with medication. No management is likely to increase anxiety when under trance conditions.
  • Asperger’s syndrome – Please seek specialist treatment.
  • Epilepsy
  • Schizophrenia
  • Bi-Polar with psychotic episodes.
  • Hallucinations.
  • Heroin addiction.
  • Excessive alcohol dependence.

Also please bear in mind issues around panic attacks or agoraphobia if you smoke. The chances are you will need to stop smoking are 100%. If you want to reduce the panic, then I am happy to work with you to first give up smoking before addressing anything else. I have in the past visited clients in their homes if agoraphobia is an issue, however, if the environment is not right for therapy, I insist that some action be taken towards working online or in the clinic.

For further information please feel free to email Penny.

If you are happy that Penny can see you then please check out fees and sessions.
