Working in private practice, schools and the NHS, Dr Sharie Coombes is a qualified and experienced female psychodynamic neuropsychotherapist, solution-focused therapist and senior specialist children’s hypnotherapist. She has worked with children and young people of all ages for 30 years and uses her unique blend of psychological therapies, with paediatric hypnotherapy if indicated and wanted, to effectively treat a range of childhood problems.
Dr Coombes can help families with children from the age of 2 where there are difficulties. Children from the age of 4 can benefit from paediatric hypnosis and child hypnotherapy through use of Creative Play Technique (CPT), a relaxing, familiar, gentle, safe and often rapid therapy technique which I have devised and tested over 10 years. Children over the age of 7 or 8 often respond extremely well to hypnotic work. Significant reductions in anxiety and stress can be achieved through this work, which is vital for enabling young people to do well in all aspects of their lives. Did you know that recent scientific studies have shown that children under stress have worse general health overall and that there is a link between childhood stress, obesity and depression?
Utilising my own tested Creative Play Technique (CPT) with children and young people in and out of educational settings, I have been able to help clients to move towards a more positive future. CPT is a unique combination of psychodynamic psychotherapy, solution-focused psychotherapy, paediatric hypnotherapy, hypnosis, mindfulness, psychoanalytic therapy, play therapy, creativity, CBT, counselling, role-play and NLP.
Sharie has a full CRB/DBS clearance and work within the strict codes of ethics of the registered bodies I am accredited by as well as complying with all local authority child protection guidelines.
