Clinical Hypnotherapist, Mindfulness and Pilates Teacher
Mairi Connelly Dip.Hyp MBCH, CECCH (MNCH)
I work with people who are struggling to cope with their personal situations, helping you to take back control of your health, rebalance your life and feel re-energised and confident again.
By understanding your goals, both mental and physical, I will guide you through manageable changes that will optimise you and your health and help you to feel better every day.
Having worked for over 20 years in challenging corporate environments, I know how difficult it is to juggle career and home life and follow a healthy lifestyle at the same time.
In 2015, my husband was diagnosed with FND, a chronic pain disorder that left him barely able to function. With the stress that brought, I subsequently experienced my very own ‘annus horribilis’ which resulted in being rushed to hospital in an ambulance. It was then that I decided to take some time out to help both of us to heal.
I practised and studied Mindfulness and went on to complete my Certificate in Mindfulness Diploma. Experiencing first-hand the improvement in my husband’s chronic pain, in both of our stress levels, and to the quality of our lives led me to enrol on a further 2 year diploma course at the Central England College of Clinical Hypnotherapy, where I retrained as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. I have been teaching Pilates Matwork for many years, so focusing on how our minds and bodies work in synergy, and how this affects our behaviours and physical wellbeing is my passion. I love helping people to overcome the issues that have may have held them back in their life, or perhaps manifested into a physical condition.
Why choose me?
There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. I have the knowledge and coaching skills to support my clients with tailored clinical support and lifestyle programmes. And I try to keep things real… working together we will come to an understanding of your health goals and priorities. This will enable me to tailor your therapy specifically to suit you and may involve elements of hypnosis, fast phobia release, EMDR, parts integration, mindfulness, cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy (understanding how and why we do things), solution focused counselling and NLP. I am also a keen advocate of gut health - looking after your gut is one of the most effective ways to maintain an optimum and healthy weight, strengthen your immune system, reduce tissue and joint inflammation and enhance your overall health and wellbeing. I will guide you through realistic, achievable lifestyle changes to suit your requirements and will support your journey to a healthier, happier you. I can help you with:
mental and physical fitness
energy levels and focus
stress and anxiety
chronic pain and inflammatory conditions
weight management, IBS
phobias and fears
