About Me

Nigel Szczepaniak, Proprietor of Headworks HypnotherapyWho am I?

Hello, I’m Nigel and on this page you can find out more about me.

Are you feeling stuck, lacking in self-esteem or low in confidence?  Do you want to change but don’t know how?   I’ve felt the same way.

It was fine when I was a child.  I had loving parents, an older brother and sister to keep me entertained, a dog and a comfortable home.  I was happy, bright, imaginative with nothing about me to suggest I could ever find life difficult.

Things started to change when I went to secondary school.  I was fine academically but in other ways I began to feel that I didn’t quite fit in.  I found it difficult to make friends, became increasingly withdrawn, and retreated more and more from the world about me into books and my imagination.  That was where I stayed for about 30 years, just venturing out enough to go to school, University, then work.  Occasionally the real me would break through for a while – kind, funny and a bit silly – but it never felt quite safe to show that for too long.

Eventually the constant battle between the real me and the person I showed to the world just became too much for me and I imploded.  I sank into a deep depression where, at best, I could drag myself through the motions of life.  At my worst, all I could do was sleep and hope the pain would go away.

But the story has a happy ending.  With the aid of medication and various types of therapy, I recovered.  I know that I am still, and probably always will be, vulnerable to depression.  But I also know that I have the tools to prevent it from taking control of my life.  If only someone could have given me the help I needed at an earlier stage, things might never have got so bad.

And that’s why I want to help you.  I’m not going to pretend that I fully understand your personal difficulties – everyone has a different experience, unique to them.  But if you’ve lacked confidence, if you’ve felt you don’t fit in, if you’ve worried that everyone thinks you’re useless, or if you’ve been depressed – I know the territory, I speak the language.

As a qualified Hypnotherapist, I can help you change the way you feel about yourself.  I can give you the confidence and self-esteem to believe that you have a place in this world, and the motivation to go out there and get it.  I’ll show you how to get rid of all the negative emotional programming that’s made you miserable and held you back, and replace it with new ways of thinking and feeling.

Together we will change your life.
