The Open Book Practice

Life isn’t only about what happens to us; it’s the stories we tell ourselves

Let me help you reclaim control of your narrative through a combination of coaching, hypnotherapy, CBT, NLP, and bibliotherapy.

As humans, we need to make meaning from our experiences, both good and bad. When we tell better stories about ourselves, we live happier, more fulfilled lives. 

I’ve been helping people tell better stories in a variety of ways for the past 23 years, first as a book editor, later as a ghostwriter, author, and hypnotherapist. I take a creative, open-hearted and open-minded approach with my clients, truly listening, reading between the lines and eliciting their gifts to help them create the lives they want. 

Call me if you believe I can be of help, and let your mind work for you.

And how it works
The mind is complex, but when it comes to human behaviour we know that we operate on two levels. At the conscious level of the mind, we make plans, we work, we exercise our limited willpower, we keep track of things in our short-term memory. The conscious mind can process 5-7 pieces of information at a time. It is logical and rational.

And how it works
Many of us have experienced the life-changing power of the right book at the right time. And it is the desire for that kind of transformation that drives sales of self-help books. But the typical experience can be somewhat frustrating.

  • I have enjoyed our sessions enormously and I am so pleased to be able to share with you the fact that I am truly feeling the benefits... I'm caring less about what other people think of me. I am happy to speak up without the feelings of inner turmoil and I'm enjoying finding ways to diffuse situations with difficult people with a little charm and humour. Also, I think I'm listening more and trying to understand other people more, instead of just concentrating on what I want to say or even what I'm not saying out loud. I’ve gained so much from the hypnosis but also from our conversations about life.

  • My therapist recommended that I explore hypnotherapy to help with anxiety and introduced me to Erin late last year.

After my first session with her, I felt a marked difference in my anxiety, with fewer intrusive thoughts and a greater sense of calm. 

Since then she and I have worked not only the anxiety, but she’s assisted me through a career change, a breakup and the uncertainty that COVID has brought.

 If you’re considering hypnotherapy, I would recommend Erin in a heartbeat. I’ve recommended her to countless people and there is genuinely not a single person I know who couldn’t benefit from a session with her.

Erin is a warm, engaging and talented hypnotherapist and I am grateful to my therapist for introducing me to her.

  • I had hypnotherapy surrounding my anger when I was going through a tough time in life and this really helped me manage it and let go of my anger in a healthy way.

    Erin has helped me shift in many areas in my life in such a short space of time and I would highly recommend hypnosis with Erin.

  • As I found my previous experiences had gone so well and massive changes happened within me, I asked Erin if she could help me bring more like-minded people into my life, using hypnosis. I have been working with a self-compassion recording Erin has provided for me for a few weeks, and I must say truthfully I am surrounding myself with more like-minded people and it just has been happening naturally.

  • I went with an open mind and no expectations. Erin has a wonderful inviting energy that really made me feel at ease about the entire process. After a few sessions with her I really did feel as though a persistent long-term issue had been resolved and for that I am eternally grateful. I would love to recommend her for anyone thinking of hypnotherapy as part of their journey.
