What You Can Expect
People may choose to have hypnotherapy for a variety of reasons - they may want to learn to relax deeply getting rid of stress and anxieties; to change an unwanted habit; to conquer a fear such as public speaking .
Hypnotherapy works with the power of your unconscious mind and can often create positive benefits in a relatively short space of time. Most issues are successfully resolved with 3 to 5 sessions.
Most clients make initial contact by phone. During your telephone call we will briefly discuss what you want to achieve and how hypnotherapy may be able to help you. I will answer any questions you may have about hypnosis.
The first session focuses on clearly identifying what you want to achieve and putting simple strategies in place to do this. Together we will explore exactly what you want to achieve and this will enable me to personalise a strategy for you to enhance your wellbeing. Everything that you discuss will be in the strictest confidence.
We will have plenty of time to answer any questions you may have about hypnosis or NLP. By the end of the session we will have clearly defined your long and short term goals for our work together.
The second session is where the real fun starts - in this session I will use a combination of hypnosis and NLP to help you take control of your behaviour and make the changes you want.
You will relax in a comfortable chair as I guide you in to a state of hypnosis. Typically you will be very aware of everything that occurs, but will feel very relaxed and comfortable. While you continue to feel relaxed I will help guide your sub-conscious mind to find the perfect solution for you.
When the session is complete, you will remember all that has occurred. Some people like to talk about their experience.
Sessions 3 to 5 are similar to session 2. Having checked what progress you have made since the last session, I will vary my techniques to ensure that you have the best possible chance of success in the shortest time possible. Each session will build on the last, giving you plenty of strategies to achieve your goals.
Fears and Phobias
Don’t let your fear of flying, needles, the dentist, spiders, water, animals, (the list is endless) stop you from living your life to the full. There is no need to suffer any longer. Hypnotherapy and NLP can help you to overcome your fears and anxieties in as little as one session.

Stress and Anxieties
Learn to have a clearer understanding and a new inner control over your fear reactions by desensitising your mind and overriding unwelcome reactions.
Anxiety and stress can affect people in different ways. You may be experiencing anxious thoughts, sometimes obsessive thoughts. They may be focused on specific events in the past or in the future.
You might be experiencing physical symptoms such as shortness of breath, dizziness, increased heart rate, trembling, muscle tension, headaches, swearing, numbness, tingling, dry mouth, abdominal discomfort, diarrhoea, nausea, fatigue, or a full blown panic attack.
You may find yourself crying, screaming or avoiding certain situations. You may have trouble sleeping, restlessness, irritability, compulsions or obsessions.
When individuals suffer from an anxiety disorder it may lead to avoidance of certain situations because they fear their anxiety may be triggered. Whether your anxiety is hereditary, caused by too much pressure or as a result of life experiences hypnotherapy is an effective treatment for anxiety disorders, it aims to seek out the root cause of the anxiety and change your perception of it.
Addictions and Compulsions
There are many forms of addictions, and the more obvious ones are smoking, alcohol, drugs, and addictions to certain foods.
The truth is that all addictions are just illusions of the mind, which means that it is not real and not how the person really wants to behave. Alcohol shuts out unwanted thoughts for a while, as do drugs and overeating or binge eating, but it is short lived and an illusion.
Someone who has any kind of addiction or compulsion that is not wanted has an anxiety within them, and is not feeling at peace or in balance. No one truly in their right mind would harm themselves deliberately, or have any kind of death wise through smoking or taking drugs, and yet they seem to be unable to do anything about it.
Hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming help to change the distortions in the mind and creates a new way of thinking. It may help to see it as some faulty programming going on in your mind and that it needs to be re-programmed.
All my therapy is based on how you would like to think, feel and behave. It is important that you know how you would like to be in your future, so that I can personalise your therapy to exactly what you want to achieve.
The types of addictions I can help with include; smoking, alcohol, drugs, gambling, self-harming, compulsive shopping and OCD.
You may have been reading for many years that the only real successful way to get rid of unwanted pounds is to change your lifestyle. It may be that you don’t really want to read that, and instead want a quick fix.
Most people’s eating problems lie in the fact that it is a psychological problem. If you eat because you are bored, need comfort, or want to punish yourself, then it is a compulsion.
Hypnosis and other powerful techniques can help you change your attitude, and also help to increase your confidence even more.
We often have beliefs about food which can be negative, and sometimes use food to comfort us even when we are not hungry. My programme will help to eliminate negative beliefs and allow you to understand your eating patterns. We all like to be in control of what we do in both mind and body – I can show you how.
Virtual Gastric Band with Hypnosis
Imagine that your stomach could be smaller so you would naturally eat less! Most of our problems with eating are not caused by eating the wrong foods. It’s because we eat too much for our body to cope with, and if we eat too many calories our bodies store it and we will gain weight.
So, is it a simple equation – eat less, lose weight?
Not really, because to many people food is more than just fuel: sometimes we associate food with emotions – sad, happy, fed up, not in control of situations. Our stomach expects more food because we have stretched it too much. We feel it’s ‘not fair’ that we can’t eat what we want.
And then there are those ‘messages’ from our past such as ‘Eat everything on your plate’. These messages can affect our beliefs and values around food. If you are seriously considering using a virtual gastric band to enable you to eat less you need to believe that: ‘You can eat less and become slimmer’.
As a result of this treatment you will be able to enjoy all foods, but just eat less of them and feel totally satisfied with the amount you do eat. You can begin to exercise your body to tone it up by doing the exercises that are right for you and that you are happy doing. You deserve to be slimmer and wear the clothes you want to wear.
Virtual Gastric Band will take you through a virtual operation so that you feel as though your stomach is much smaller and therefore it is no hardship to eat less and lose weight consistently.
Even more importantly – you will remain slimmer. Having allowed your stomach to become smaller, you will keep it that way and if you try to eat too much you will feel very uncomfortable and overfull.
For clients with serious emotional issues and disorders, the virtual gastric band will only be used once the issues are dealt with in the first few sessions. This is a vital part of the process, because the virtual gastric band will not work if the old emotions are stronger than the new beliefs at this time.
Are you ready to stop smoking? If the answer is Yes then you’re on the right track here.
You already know intellectually that smoking is dangerous to your health. You have all the frightening facts and negative information, yet you continue to smoke. To graduate from smoking and become a non-smoker, getting your subconscious mind inspired is the key! It contains your emotions and habits - your intellect does not. With the help of hypnosis you can successfully become a non-smoker in a one off two hour session.
