IMG_0129 (3).jpg Michelle Louise Balson  RGN, DSFH, AfSFH, MNCH (Reg), CNHC Michelle Louise Balson is a Registered Nurse and Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. Michelle obtained her degree in Nursing from Plymouth University and has trained at The Clifton Practice of Hypnotherapy Training which is a well renowned and respected, nationwide training establishment. She has achieved her Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy which is accredited by the NCFE. She currently sees hypnotherapy clients in Wedmore Surgery and The Hampden Osteopathic Clinic and works as a Practice Nurse in Bridgwater where she specialises in diabetes, COPD, asthma, contraception and minor illness. Michelle says ‘becoming a nurse came from a desire to care for people in their times of need. I became interested in hypnotherapy when I wanted a way to empower people to live better emotionally and physically. I believe that when we have greater control over our mental health then we are able to make healthier choices which can lead to a full and happy life. Living with conditions such as anxiety and panic attacks can have a huge impact on someone’s life and hypnotherapy can help enormously with these and other conditions. In my years of nursing I became acutely aware of how short life is and you can’t waste a moment of it on feelings of anxiety, fear, guilt or shame. You can’t change the past but you can change the way you feel about tomorrow’. Her therapy method is Solution Focused which means that visiting past, sometimes painful experiences, is not necessarily needed but instead finding a way to cope with the present and looking towards the preferred future is more helpful. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is the perfect way to change unwanted behaviour. Michelle has full insurance to work with adults and children and has enhanced DBS clearance.
