What is Hypnotherapy?


Hypnotherapy is used for a wide range of problems which include anxiety, phobias, weight reduction, smoking cessation, stress reduction, pain relief, anger management, confidence building, sleep problems and habits like nail biting.

The therapist induces the client into a state of deep relaxation and in doing so is able to 'talk to the subconscious mind'. We normally use the conscious mind in our daily lives with decision making, and in new situations where we need to fathom what we need to do we use rational thinking. Our subconscious mind is hidden but very important and works on 'auto pilot' and deals with our emotions, imagination, memories and autonomic nervous system.

Just some of the things hypnotherapy can help with:

  • Control your Weight and Virtual Gastric Band

  • Pain Management

  • Relax and learn to let go

  • Hang-Ups, Fears and Phobia cessation

  • Become a non-smoker

  • Stress Management

  • Relationship Issues

  • Eliminate restrictive behaviour patterns

  • Sleep disorders

  • Bereavement therapy

  • IBS therapy

  • Regression

  • Past Life Regression


I have a particular interest in helping people with ANXIETY problems and have obtained a Certificate of Working with Anxiety Issues

I also have a certificate in Weight Management and Gastric Band Hypnotherapy

Others include: Bereavement, fear of flying and fear of death.


What does a treatment involve?

Sensations will vary from person to person and may be described as a very relaxing experience.

Hypnosis, or trance, is an altered state of consciousness that we enter and leave naturally and feels very much like day dreaming, or the feeling between sleeping and waking.

Hypnotherapy is a two way process between therapist and client. A person cannot be hypnotised unless he or she agrees and co-operates. Whilst hypnotised, nobody can make the client do anything that they do not want to do.

By working together much can be achieved. Hypnotherapy can open doors and find answers. Every session is individually tailored to my client's needs.

In my first session with a new client I initially assess my client's needs by asking questions and listening carefully. I then work out a treatment plan with their full consent and at the end will do some relaxation therapy.

Everything that is said is strictly confidential. I also work to a code of ethics that is laid down by the National Council for Hypnotherapy.

Your comfort and peace of mind is always important to me and I am happy to answer any questions that you may have.
