Current Specialties Include

Hypnotic Suggestion

Hypnotic suggestion or clinical hypnosis is the hypnotherapy most people think of when hypnosis is mentioned.

 

After an initial chat to find out what you do and don’t want, you will be relaxed into a calm and peaceful trance state of mind and given suggestions to help change your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

 

You will be aware throughout the whole process, but in a comfortable hypnotic trance.  You will be able to accept the suggestions that you do want and will naturally reject anything that you do not want.  You will be in complete control the whole time.

 

Hypnotic Suggestion is ideal for breaking habits such as Stopping Smoking, Nail-Biting, and Hair-Pulling (Trichotillomania), or boosting your confidence before a public speech, or with assistance with passing exams or driving test.

 

It can also be used for pain control, childbirth, IBS, boosting your immune system and a range of other medical applications, though medical examination with your GP may be required prior to such treatment.

Hypnotic suggestion is also great for general relaxation.

 

Hypnotic Suggestion CAN be permanent but it depends on the nature of the issue. If the suggestions ‘stick’ enough to permanently change your inner belief(s), then the results will be long-lasting.

 

However, if it is used as a short-term fix to help you get through a situation, then the results may be short-term as well, lasting perhaps a few weeks or so, depending on the individual circumstances.

 

(For more emotional issues, we would usually recommend a course of Hypno-Analysis.)

 

Hypnotic suggestion (sometimes called Clinical Hypnosis) typically requires 1 -3 sessions, but it does vary from person to person.

Hypnoanalysis

Hypnoanalysis is probably one of the kindest, quickest and most effective forms of therapy available in the world today for the resolution of personal emotional and psychological problems such as Anxiety, Depression, Fears, Phobias, Eating Disorders, Relationship Issues, Sexual Problems, Lack of Confidence, Poor Performance, Public Performance…Or anything where your thoughts and feelings are creating emotions that impact on your behaviour or experience.

 

Hypno-analysis helps to resolve the real root of the issue and underlying cause of the problem by combining methods drawn from a wide range of psychotherapeutic approaches – and often leads to permanent beneficial changes.

 

Sometimes hypno-analysis can work very quickly, often in just a few sessions, but it really does depend upon the individual situation. Usually, you would expect to attend for a course of 6 – 8 sessions as an average, but can be more or a lot less. The course of treatment will be tailored specifically to you and designed to resolve your issue as quickly, efficiently and kindly as possible.

 

Hypno-analysis will essentially give you a complete “emotional clear-out” – setting you free of old ideas and old feelings that may have been holding you back or causing problems for years.

 

Most people going through a course of hypno-analysis discover that not only do their issues get resolved, but also their personal and working lives take off in new and exciting ways as well.

 

You are still YOU at the end but usually a much happier, relaxed and more confident you.

Neuro Linguistic Programming

NLP offers some fantastic tools and methods for you to draw upon which are very effective when combined with clinical hypnosis and hypnoanalysis but can also be done very consciously without any formal hypnosis at all.

 

It is a method of influencing brain behaviour (the “neuro” part of the phrase) through the use of language (the “linguistic” part) and other types of communication to enable a person to “recode” the way the brain responds to stimuli (that’s the “programming”) and bring about new and better behaviours.

 

It is basically the use of language to influence how we think and respond to situations.  It is extremely effective to assist in learning new skills, improve a current skill, modify an existing behaviour or model a desired behaviour.   It offers some great techniques for overcoming phobias, improve public speaking, reduce anxiety, assisting with pain control and is very useful for accessing the right state at the right time for sports or performance related issues.

 

It aims to make the unconscious thinking we do conscious and allows you to reprogram your own mind to work in a more beneficial and helpful way.  It is often said that the mind is a fantastic servant but a terrible master.  NLP enables you to take control of your own thinking and use the mind as a tool to get the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that you want in life.

Personal, Emotional and Behavioural Changework

If you have a personal, emotional or behavioural problem that you would like to change Hypnoanalysis combined with hypnotic suggestion and NLP is probably one of the kindest, quickest and most effective forms of therapy available in the world today for the resolution of personal, emotional and psychological problems such as…

We will work together to get to the root cause of your problem.  Once we know what is causing it we can work out how to change it and give you back control over or even complete freedom from it.

 

The amount of sessions required will depend on the problem, the individual and the cause but we will usually have an idea of how many sessions will be required after our initial meeting.  We will then work out a plan to solve your issue as kindly, quickly and as effectively as possible.

Sports Performance

There are no short-cuts to Sports and Athletics Success – BUT – Mental Attitude is the deciding factor that will determine whether you achieve your full potential – or not.

 

If your mind is against you – you will always feel as if you are trying to run up a down escalator. When you focus your mind and programme your subconscious for Success, you are far more likely to achieve it.

 

Sports Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy is probably the most efficient and effective way of helping you do that.

 

Learn how to get in the zone and stay in the zone, or access it at the right time every time.

 

Using specialist sports psychology techniques we can work together to improve your performance in any area of your sporting life be it at a competitive level or just a personal fitness goal.

 

We can find and eliminate any mental blockages that may be holding you back, dissolve limiting beliefs, we can boost your self discipline and motivation, and can improve your focus and determination to give you that winning edge.

 

Athletic success does not happen by accident.  To be a champion you must train like a champion and to train like a champion you must think like a champion.

 

If you want to get the edge over your competitors, or feel you have lost your form and need to get it back – call today.

Tinnitus Treatment

For the symptomatic relief of Tinnitus, hypnosis & hypnotherapy can often be extremely effective.

 

Using some basic techniques, you may be able to discover surprisingly effective ways of reducing, controlling or even eliminating your awareness of your Tinnitus symptoms.

 

Once learned, these techniques are fairly easy to apply and can be put to use in almost any situation, even those ‘quiet’ moments when your symptoms are often at their worse.

 

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT TO NOTICE AFTERWARDS?
In an ideal situation, you can expect the overall level of your Tinnitus to appear to decrease and turn down, so that it no longer seems to be so intrusive. In some cases you may even be able to ‘turn it off’ for periods.

 

IS THIS GENUINE? CAN HYPNOSIS AND HYPNOTHERAPY REALLY HELP WITH TINNITUS?
In many cases, absolutely. There is no ‘magic’ involved and this is not necessarily a ‘cure’ in medical terms. Using this particular approach the hypnosis and hypnotherapy can primarily help you reduce your awareness of the Tinnitus – like not noticing the humming of your computer – until of course you draw your attention to it.

 

Different approaches, however, can use the calming and relaxing effects of the hypnosis itself to help you reduce stress – one of the primary aggravators of Tinnitus symptoms – as well as resolve any underlying emotional issues which are often contributing factors.

 

WILL THIS WORK FOR ANYONE? CAN EVERYONE BE HYPNOTISED?
The principles and techniques are applicable to all Tinnitus sufferers, though the results achieved will vary from person to person.

 

Most of the symptomatic-relief techniques do involve an element of self-hypnosis, which you will be able to learn during the sessions, and anyone who wants to experience self-hypnosis, can – so there is no need to worry about not being able to be hypnotised.

 

HOW LONG DOES THIS TAKE? HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL YOU NEED?
You would normally allow an average of 3 or 4 sessions to cover this properly, spread over a few weeks, but more will be available if required. Sessions last approximately 1 hour each.

Pain Management

If you suffer with chronic pain of any sort and have been medically checked and diagnosed, we can teach you some extremely effective techniques that very often makes a huge difference. It is important to note that pain is the body’s way of warning you something is wrong and needs attention, therefore, before any kind of pain relief treatment, we would of course require that you have first been to your GP or suitable medical specialist to address the underlying cause and get a diagnosis, though we dot require any kind of referral.

 

Hypnosis has been used to control pain for centuries and people have even undergone surgery whilst in a hypnotic trance. In fact, it was fast becoming the primary form of anaesthesia prior to the development of safe drugs to do the job in the 18 and 1900’s.

 

The mind is such a powerful tool that we can use its abilities to reduce or in some cases completely eliminate your pain.  Pain is generated in the brain as a result of nerve impulses; we can work together using special hypnotic techniques to change how the brain processes these impulses to make you feel a lot more comfortable and relaxed.

 

It usually takes one or two sessions to go through this, but sometimes, where appropriate, we can also look into any unconscious psychological reasons for the pain, too.   We will also teach you some self hypnosis techniques to empower you going forwards with your condition.

Relaxation/Stress Management

Relaxation is the key to health and wellbeing.  In this fast paced life people very often forget to take the time to relax and find their stresses to build up to harmful levels.

 

Some stress is useful and even necessary in life it motivates us to do the things we need to do and helps us survive.  The primitive fight or flight stress response is hardwired to our neurology and is essential to help us avoid danger.

 

The problem is too much stress or not being able to switch off the stress response after it has served its purpose not only feels bad but it is bad for your physical health as well.  Prolonged periods of stress have been shown to be devastating to your immune system and can certainly lead to ill health in the long term.

 

The good news is you can learn to take control by learning to relax and manage your stress properly. Working together we can give your mind and body the chance to reset and promote a relaxed state, which is perfect for healing and bringing balance and harmony back into your system.

 

By combining meditation breath work techniques from the east and the best hypnotic techniques from the west you can learn to truly relax and maintain that relaxation in a state of alert awareness.  These are skills that you can quickly learn and take away home with you to use.

 

If you feel constantly stressed or struggle to relax in general we can use special hypnoanalysis techniques to find the root cause and dissolve these feelings completely.

We will look at all aspects of your health and wellbeing from your diet, to exercise, to any emotional contributors, to the benefits of meditation and time in nature.  This plan can then be backed up with hypnosis if you wish to move you towards your goals more quickly.

 

If you have a chronic illness and are under the care of your GP or specialist medical professional already hypnotherapy can be a very effective complimentary therapy to promote healing and recovery.   There is a growing body of evidence to support the mind – body connection and the minds power to assist the healing of physical symptoms.

Motivation and Goal Achievement
Every business or goal starts with a vision and usually positive feelings such as excitement, anticipation and empowerment.

 

But as the day to day realities of running a business or working towards that goal kick in, the jobs no one wants to do mount up, and many people can be overwhelmed by feelings of frustration, anxiety and disenchantment leading to procrastination.

 

By combining powerful visualisation, NLP, Hypnosis and meditation techniques you can learn to maintain positive feelings that can pull you through the day to day nitty gritty of running a business and towards the success you deserve.

 

If you want to vastly improve your time management skills, stay motivated, learn some tips and tricks that have helped many others and feel excited, empowered and fulfilled as you do so I would love to help you discover some powerful tools that can help you do just that.

 

If you have a specific business or life goal you would like to move towards and feel great whilst you are doing it then we can work together to make a step by step goal achievement plan for you to follow.  We can then work out where any blockages may lie and use a variety of techniques from the hypnotic tool kit to clear your path to success.

 

We can also use NLP skills developed by Richard Bandler to model the behaviour of successful people and follow their example to forge your own pathway to success. Success leaves clues and does not happen by accident.  There are indeed strategies that can be learned and applied to bring you the results you desire.

Meditation and Mindfulness

Perhaps the best gift you can give yourself is the tool of meditation.  I have studied with gurus in India and monks in Korea and Nepal and practice the art daily.  It has only benefited my life and it can benefit yours too.  I would be happy to teach you how to apply meditation and mindfulness in such a way to not only bring calmness and peace of mind but enhance your busy and dynamic life.  We wash our bodies daily, why not take the time to cleanse and declutter your mind to bring about clarity, focus and a calmness of mind to face the days challenges?  This is by far one of the best self help skills you can learn and apply. Meditation is not a quick fix, but more a long term maintenance tool for healthy living when practiced regularly for as little as 20 minutes a day. However, when combined with self-hypnosis it becomes an even more powerful and dynamic tool to enhance your life.  It would be my pleasure to teach you how to combine the ancient art of meditation from the east with the most modern techniques in the hypnotic sciences from the west to apply to your life today or simply provide you with an hour of relaxation in a guided meditation.
