What's in a Name


Somebody asked me recently Why I chose the name Gracious Mountain Therapies? And what did Gracious Mountain have to do with hypnotherapy, especially due to the fact that I live in Norfolk and, as I am sure you are aware, it is quite flat and there are no mountains about? A really good point! So, that got me thinking, why did I decide on Gracious Mountain? Should I go back to the original idea of using my name, even though it’s double barrelled and a bit of a mouthful?

Well, there were a couple of reasons, so here is the explanation and then perhaps you can let me know what you think!

The first reason was of course that I was concerned that my surname is very long and when you add the word ‘Therapies’ to the end it makes it even worse. Of course I could have split the names and either used one or the other but is that right?

So I started to look at who I am, what I want to achieve through the therapies I use to help people, and my own beliefs in those therapies and the philosophies behind them – yes a bit deep but quite meaningful I think.

A synopsis of those thoughts :-

Everybody has their own personal mountain to climb and sometimes we all need a little help. It can be tough and somewhat lonely out there doing everything on your own and that’s where I come in. I want to be able to help you on that journey, for you to achieve your true potential and hopefully ease the hardships that we can all feel along the way.

And then there’s the ‘Gracious’ part. When you look at the word Gracious in a Thesaurus there are many words which are extremely relevant to how I believe a Therapist should be and how I strive to be with my clients. Here are a few - Courteous, Diplomatic, Amiable, Well-mannered, Sociable, Civil, Tactful, Polite, Kind, Compassionate, Humane, Understanding.

So there you have it. Why I chose the name Gracious Mountain Therapies. Do let me know what thoughts, it any, you may have, I’d be really interested to hear your opinion.
