Therapeutic Hypnosis is not to be confused with Stage Hypnotism. Everyone can enjoy the positive benefits of hypnotherapy, except Children under the age of 5 years, those with a current, severe mental health problem (for example, psychosis, hyper-mania, paranoia) or anyone who doesn’t want to be hypnotised. Being hypnotised feels similar to when you are just going to sleep or just waking up, - in a deep state of relaxation, you feel warm, safe and relaxed, you will hear all the sounds within and outside the room, but just won’t want to pull yourself round to a fully waking state. You will not disclose all your inner-most secrets, and you will not be in my power.
Many people are dealing with the pain of resentment, criticism, guilt, fear, and self hatred that we acquire over the years, but remember, we are dealing with thoughts, and thoughts can be changed, we have unlimited choices about what we think and believe about ourselves. The key to positive change is in the present moment, the past has gone and the future hasn’t arrived yet.
As a Hypnotherapist I speak with your subconscious mind, where memories from the past are stored, I work upon releasing negative thoughts and behaviour patterns which have become “stuck” (e.g. “I am not good enough”) replacing them with positive thoughts and feelings, for example, self approval, self acceptance, and confidence. With my unique, tailored and bespoke system of Hypnotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Complete Mind and Body Therapy, I will help you cope and adapt in difficult situations, becoming Calm, Competent, Confident and Capable in all areas of your life.
Where Hypnotherapy is Particularly Helpful
Hypnotherapy is often helpful in addressing anxiety, stress, panic disorder, post traumatic stress or depression, where I can assist you to feel calm, confident and in control, without causing further trauma.
Hypnotherapy is also wonderful for boosting self-confidence, self-esteem and motivation. Just think what you could achieve if you knew you could not fail...
Controlling your eating pattern and reaching your desired healthy weight (whether you are overweight or underweight) can be helped by my unique combination of Hypnotherapy and Neuro-linguistic Programming.
The high success rate of my Clients in Stopping Smoking is very gratifying. This can happen in just one session, at a cost of £150, with a free follow up session if required.
Hypnotherapy helps people relax and sleep deeply and peacefully at night.
Alcohol, drug addictions and obsessive behaviour patterns e.g. excessive gambling or spending binges can all be effectively helped with my special combination of Hypnotherapy and Complete Mind and Body Therapy.
Phobias whether it is Insects, Reptiles, Heights, Enclosed Spaces, Open Spaces, Flying, Travel by Air or Sea, Dental Phobia, and many others can be treated successfully by Hypnotherapy.
I am happy to report good success rates in dealing with fears, such as Public Speaking, Wedding Nerves, Driving Test, Exam Nerves and Job Interviews, Health Anxieties and many others.
I have a particular interest in helping clients who suffer from chronic pain, such as in Arthritis, Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, or when terminally ill.
Hypnotherapy is particularly successful when applied to working with couples experiencing difficulty in conception, problems with intimate relationships or erectile dysfunction.
Another of my special interests is assisting with healthy pregnancies and calm, contented childbirth for Mother, Father and Baby. Again, I am delighted by the positive feedback my Clients have given.
Hypnotherapy helps those suffering chronic or debilitating medical problems such as Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Breathing Difficulties, Heart Problems, Nocturnal Bed Wetting (eneuresis) and Bowel Disorders.
I have helped a number of Professional Sports People, - particularly in Snooker, Athletics and Golf, to achieve that “competitive edge” whilst participating in Sporting Events.
Some people have an interest in Past Life Regression. From a Psychological point of view, this can be interpreted in a number of ways, from the Psychoanalytical to the Esoteric. I am fully trained and experienced in this work, and previous Clients have reported that they have found this interesting and beneficial in their current lives. If this is something you might be interested in, why not ring me? You may find that a one to one exploratory discussion could be most useful.
An Initial Session for Hypnotherapy, lasting 1 hour 30 minutes, costs £50. On-going Sessions last 1 hour and cost £40.
A combined Stop Smoking assessment and therapy session lasts 1 hour 30 minutes and costs £150. In the unusual event that a follow-up session is required, this is included in the price.

All sessions are Confidential between you and me, except in certain circumstances.
If I believe you are at risk of injuring yourself or someone else, following discussion, I may enlist the help of your General Practitioner who may offer further care.
If you disclose a current Child Protection issue, I would be obliged to inform the Children’s Social Services Team so they could investigate and help the Parent or Guardian protect the Child.
Or if you were to tell me of a vulnerable adult who was being abused, I would need to enlist the help of the Adult Protection Team.
