How Hypnotherapy can help

Confidence & motivation

Confidence & motivation

Being comfortable and confident in who you are and recognising the limitless possibilities in what you can achieve has far reaching benefits both professionally and personally; improving self-esteem, general well-being and most importantly Happiness!  The mind is a powerful tool and Hypnotherapy can help you identify solutions unique to you and give you the confidence and drive to reach those goals.

Depression, Anxiety and Anger

Depression, Anxiety and Anger

These are the brain’s primitive responses to helping us survive dangerous situations, but sadly the brain can misinterpret true danger and have a devastating impact on our daily life.  Hypnotherapy can help you to lift that cloud, see the beauty of life and start to get the real you back.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Hypnotherapy is now a recognised treatment for IBS by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).  Developing coping strategies and utilising relaxation techniques can reduce the physical and emotional symptoms associated with IBS and improve your general well-being & quality of life.  Hypnotherapy can help you see a more comfortable and brighter future.

Insomnia

Insomnia

Sleep is crucial to our physical & psychological health, yet anxiety & stress can lead to the vicious cycle of being kept a wake and feeling even more worried…. Hypnotherapy can help you reduce your stress, feel calm, relaxed and focused and look forward to the benefits of a good night’s sleep!

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Our brains encourage us to recheck things in order to be vigilant and keep us safe (It wouldn’t allow us to simply forget a nearby danger, we’d keep checking!)  Unfortunately, our brains can also develop misguided patterns of behaviour.  OCD can be debilitating and devastating, with compulsive thoughts or behaviours interfering with daily life and trapping people by a controlling routine.  Hypnotherapy can help you find solutions to break that cycle, regain control and have the freedom to enjoy your life.

Chronic Pain Management & migraine

Chronic Pain Management & migraine

Acute pain is crucial to survival, alerting your body to a danger or injury.  Chronic or persistent pain is relentless, serving no helpful purpose and often leaving us feeling depressed.   Hypnotherapy can disrupt the pain messages being sent to the brain, help you to focus on the positive aspects of your life and even produce endorphins (natural painkillers) helping you to focus on a brighter future.

Performance Enhancement

Performance Enhancement

Top Athletes now look inside themselves to access valuable resources and potential, recognising the power of the subconscious mind.  There are countless benefits of being able to automate our behaviours and muscle responses, in the same way we learn to tie our shoelaces.  Mental rehearsal and positive visualisation are powerful tools in enhancing performance and reaching our goals, in all aspects of our personal and professional life.

Fears, Phobias & trauma

Fears, Phobias & trauma

Our brains respond to life experiences and perceived threat; producing templates of behaviour and chemical responses to keep us safe.  When these behaviours do their job, they are further reinforced, forming automatic responses (eg flight or fight). We can be thankful for knowing instinctively to run away from a lion.   However, for a variety of reasons, irrational responses can develop in just the same way, creating the same intense feeling of fear and anxiety for phobias.  Hypnotherapy is an effective way to rewrite unhelpful templates and give you the freedom to move forwards and enjoy your life.

Relaxation

Relaxation

Relaxation is essential to us, yet often overlooked and undervalued in our busy lives.  This is a crucial part of healthy mental behaviour and allows our brains to help us solve problems, find answers and be the best we can be.  Allowing our mind to wander increases creativity and often leads to our best ideas… Einstein’s eureka moments often happened when he was thinking about other things!

Skin Disorders

Skin Disorders

Skin is the largest organ and reacts to chemical changes in the body and mind, eg blushing or goosebumps! There are many skin disorders directly linked to anxiety, often flaring up during times of stress.  Eczema and Psoriasis are common examples of physical symptom of stress, causing further discomfort and impacting upon confidence and self esteem.  By reducing stress, focusing on the positive aspects of your life and regulating your body’s chemical levels, Hypnotherapy can assist with removing the physical manifestations of anxiety and giving you back your confidence.

Stop Smoking

Stop Smoking

By reading this you are already well on your way to a healthier and wealthier life!  If you truly have the dedication and determination to stop smoking, it is remarkably easy once you understand how your brain works and tricks you into thinking you need that cigarette! Hypnotherapy will empower you to reach your goal, supporting you to imagine that positive future free from smoking.  This is reinforced through the use of trance; accessing the subconscious mind and reprogramming those urges to really embed that positive change.

Weight loss

Weight loss

Cupboards full of diet books, random exercise dvds? We all want to feel and look our best, to be healthy and have personal and social confidence.  There are many emotional and physiological links between weight loss and the brain. But quite simply, if we are calm, relaxed and happy, we make good decisions and enable our body to function well and manage our weight.  By reducing your stress levels and focusing on the positive aspects of life, you can bring about lasting change in your physical appearance, but most importantly in your general wellbeing and happiness.
