Areas where hypnotherapy can help

Have a look at the 'Testimonials' page to see how other people have been helped.

 

Phobias and Fears

The origin of a phobia can be associated with a traumatic or unpleasant event earlier on in life, although can also be triggered during a time of high anxiety.  The subconscious, noting high anxiety, steps in with panic behaviour which we can then begin to associate with an object, place or event.  Fears and phobias can be extremely debilitating and restricting in many areas of life.  Using hypnotherapy, phobias can be resolved within three to five sessions.

 

The process enables the person to disassociate from the fear/phobia, using specific techniques that enable the emotion to be taken out of the experience.  More realistic patterns of thought are then developed helping the individual's subconscious become indifferent to the particular object of fear so that they will be less affected by it in the future.

Easing stress and anxiety

Stress or anxiety can be a common complaint in today's society and most people encounter it at some point.  A certain amount can be dealt with naturally, as long as it stays within our 'safe levels'.

 

When it becomes too much for us to cope with it can affect our quality of life.  Excessive or prolonged stress can lead to illness, physical and emotional exhaustion, increased anxiety or even panic attacks.  When we come under excessive pressure, from our home, work or social factors, we tend to respond with either anxiety, anger or depression or a combination of these three.

 

How I can help - Hypnotherapy gives us the ability to cope in different situations in a calm and effective way.  You will be able to control your anxiety levels and have a calmer, more confident approach to all situations.  Its success can be aided, by the use of self-hypnosis and/or a relaxation cd, recreating the calm state experienced during the hypnotherapy session.

 

Around twelve million adults see their GPs with mental health problems each year - most of these suffer from anxiety and depression, much of which is stress-related.

Self confidence

If you lack either confidence or motivation the likely cause is a degree of underlying stress, anxiety or depression.  When we lack confidence in our abilities we often have negative views of the future or are introspective about the past.

 

With solution-focused hypnotherapy anxiety can be reduced, unwanted behaviour patterns eliminated and subconscious processes developed to be more optimistic and motivated to succeed.  This is part of the successful treatment of problem areas such as public speaking, interviews and exams.

Weight control

The most common cause of being overweight relates to the individual's attitude to food -it's not just a matter of choice but also a matter of conditioning laid down in childhood and throughout life.  Your attitude to food and eating is the most important means of losing weight, and that's where hypnotherapy comes in.  Under hypnosis the subconscious can be allowed to form fresh perspectives on how, what, when and why you eat.  It's not so difficult once your subconscious mind better understands the role of food.

Old childhood behaviour patterns are updated so that food is not used for comfort at times of stress, making the task of losing weight so much easier.  You gain control over your eating habits as your shape changes to a more healthier you.
