Anxiety Hypnotherapy -anxiety disorders affect millions of UK residents each year, which makes anxiety the anxiety hypnotherapymost common mental illness in the UK. Many people are now choosing to treat their anxiety with Anxiety Hypnotherapy. Contrary to what you’ve seen in movies, hypnosis involves a lot more than traveling into a trancelike state after looking into someone’s eyes. During a hypnosis session, you undergo a process that helps you relax and focus your mind. This state is similar to sleep, but your mind will be very focused and more able to respond to suggestion. Anxiety Hypnotherapy is a painless, enjoyable and medication free way of dealing with anxiety.While in this relaxed state, it’s believed that the person is more willing to focus on their subconscious mind. This allows them to explore some of the deeper issues they’re dealing with.

Hypnotherapy sessions may be used to:

  • explore repressed memories, such as abuse
  • instil a desire for healthy habits that can lead to weight loss
  • help to relax and reprogram an anxious brain
  • I am there to help guide this process. I am not there to control my client’s mind.

What are the benefits of using Anxiety Hypnotherapy?

Even though hypnotherapy anxiety isn’t as widely known as psychotherapy and medication for treating anxiety, researchers and scientists have been studying the effects it can have on mental health conditions such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and depression for several years.In one 2016 study, researchers scanned the brains of people while they were undergoing guided Anxiety Hypnotherapy sessions. They found that a hypnotized brain experiences changes in the brain that give a person:

  • focused attention
  • greater physical and emotional control
  • less self-consciousness

How is Anxiety Hypnotherapy used?

Let’s say that I have a client with a fear of flying. During a hypnotherapy session, I can give them what’s known as a “posthypnotic suggestion” while they’re in a state of trance.In this wonderful relaxed almost dreamlike state, the mind becomes more open to suggestion. This allows me to suggest to my client how easily confident they will be the next time they sit on a plane. Because of the relaxed state they’re  in, it can be easier to avoid escalating any anxiety symptoms they may feel, such as:

  • a feeling of impending doom
  • shortness of breath
  • increased heart rate
  • muscle tension
  • irritability
  • nervous stomach

If someone only uses Anxiety Hypnotherapy to treat their anxiety, it could have effects similar to those of meditation. A hypnotic induction would help put them into this relaxed state, just like meditation. They can then use this state to address anxieties and phobias. So, if the subject trying to treat a fear of flying, they can visualize themselves going back to the first time they feared flying. They can use a technique called hypnoprojectives, where they visualize their past events as they would’ve liked to have seen them. Then they see themselves in the future, feeling calm and peaceful while on a plane.

What you need to know before trying Anxiety Hypnotherapy

As long as you’re seeing a qualified mental health professional who has extensive training in hypnosis, the use of hypnotherapy to treat anxiety is considered very safe. The first thing to consider when choosing a hypnotherapist is the practitioner’s qualifications. Look for a degree qualified mental health care professional — such as a psychologist, psychotherapist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, counsellor, social worker, or medical doctor — who is also a hypnotherapist. Unfortunately there are many therapists advertising who have nothing more than an online qualification, they will usually claim to have either a diploma or certificate in Hypnotherapy, these are not recognised qualifications. You can also ask if they’re affiliated with any professional associations, such as the International Hypnotherapy Association.

    Smoking Hypnosis can be an effective method in challenging unhelpful mindsets and negative Smoking Hypnosisbehaviours associated with smoking, helping you to live a healthier life. Smoking is the greatest single cause of illness and premature death in the UK. Worldwide the number is far greater. Tobacco is killing around seven million people each year, while almost one million deaths are due to non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke. Despite nearly 80,000 people in the UK dying from smoking-related illnesses each year, one in five adults is still a regular smoker.

    Though, it seems things are changing. 40 years ago, 51% of men and 41% of women were smokers. These rates have more than halved, with 15% of UK adults smoking, and 59% saying they have never smoked.

    Stopping smoking is a big challenge for a person to face, and they will often need more than just willpower. There are many options now available; from campaigns such as Stoptober and local support groups to medications. For many people, stop smoking hypnosis is an effective solution.

    When it comes to stopping smoking, it is important you know why you want to quit and are sure you are making the decision for yourself. Trying to quit when you’re not ready, or for reasons other than your own, can often lead to relapse and feeling like a failure. If you decide you want to quit and are committed to the decision, it’s more likely you’ll succeed and stop smoking hypnosis  can make it much easier

    Smoking Hypnosis – Why stop smoking?

    Smoking increases the risk of developing a wide range of health ailments and diseases. But unfortunately, the habit doesn’t only harm the smoker’s health, it can also have a negative impact on the people around them. If smoking around children and babies, for example, they become vulnerable to many smoking-related health problems, such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and the risk of cot death will increase. Adults who endure passive smoking for a long period of time are also at an increased risk of heart disease and lung cancer. Tobacco is also an irritant; therefore, it can make conditions such as asthma worse.

    Smoking Hypnosis What are the benefits of quitting smoking?

    It’s never too late to quit smoking. Whatever age you are, if you make the decision to stop, your health will benefit. However, the sooner you quit; the faster the body can recover and the risk of developing serious health conditions will decrease.

    There are many benefits to stopping smoking, including:

    • More energy
    • Improved immune system
    • Longer life expectancy
    • Better breathing
    • Less stress
    • Younger looking skin
    • More money

    Smoking Hypnosis how will my body react when I stop?

    The time since the last cigarette and how it affects the body:

    • 20 minutes: Blood pressure and heart rate return to normal.
    • 12 hours: Carbon monoxide levels drop back to normal.
    • 24 hours: The body starts to clear out the mucus build-up in the lungs.
    • 72 hours: Breathing becomes easier and energy levels increase.
    • 1 month: Appearance of the skin improves.
    • 3 to 9 months: Lung function can improve by up to 10 per cent.
    • 1 year: Risk of suffering from a heart attack falls to about half of that of a smoker.
    • 10 years: Risk of developing lung cancer falls to about half of that of a smoker.
    • 15 years: Risk of suffering heart attack falls to that of a non-smoker.

    Stop Smoking Hypnosis

    A great number of people find smoking hypnosis an effective treatment. The method works to break the negative behaviours and thinking patterns associated with smoking; like smoking to relieve stress. It is these negative thoughts and behaviours that often prevent people from successfully giving up. Quitting does not deal with the underlying issues.

    So, when a person makes the decision to stop smoking, the key aspect is to let go of the routine and change how they view cigarettes. Breaking an addiction like this is a challenge; it won’t be easy, especially if it is a lifelong habit, and changing how you think about something can be difficult.

    Smoking hypnosis focuses on this change. I will support you and guide you through the motions, you’re no longer alone in trying to quit. Because of this, smoking hypnosis is fast becoming one of the most popular forms

    When considering smoking hypnosis to stop smoking, the first thing to do is to make sure you are ready and are choosing to quit for yourself. Smoking hypnosis has been found to be most effective when the person really wants to quit and is determined in succeeding.

    The reason smoking hypnosis works so well is easy to understand. Smoking, like all habits, is controlled by the unconscious part of the mind. Smoking hypnosis works by guiding the individual into a deep, relaxed state. During this time, the mind is more open to suggestion and change. At this point, I will make suggestions, which will help you in changing your thought patterns and behaviours associated with smoking.

    My suggestions will be tailored to you, but will be along the lines of “I do not want a cigarette” and “the smell of cigarette smoke makes me feel unwell”. This can help build an association – when you think of smoking, the unpleasant thoughts will come as well.

    It is important to remember that hypnotherapy for smoking is not a quick fix. While for some people, one session is enough to quit smoking (or continue the journey alone), others may benefit from follow-up sessions. The ultimate aim of hypnosis for smoking is to empower people to take control of their addiction and improve their health.

    The first thing to consider when choosing a hypnotherapist is the practitioner’s qualifications. Look for a degree qualified mental health care professional — such as a psychologist, psychotherapist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, counsellor, social worker, or medical doctor — who is also a hypnotherapist. Unfortunately, there are many therapists advertising who have nothing more than an online qualification, they will usually claim to have either a diploma or certificate in Hypnotherapy, these are not recognised qualifications. You can also ask if they’re affiliated with any professional associations, such as the International Hypnotherapy Association. If for example, a hypnotist uncovers trauma while doing hypnotherapy, they need to know how to treat trauma. In other words, having the education and training to diagnose and treat mental health conditions — which comes from being a degree qualified Psychologist — is a key component in the success of hypnotherapy and of course your safety.

      Virtual Hypnotic Gastric Band – The Scam

      As a traditional fully qualified Hypnotherapist with over

      Virtual Hypnotic Gastric Band
      Don’t be Scammed

      30 years of clinical practice and experience I am annoyed when I see some rather dubious therapist offering to fit a virtual hypnotic gastric band using hypnotherapy. These claims are ridiculous, one of the first things that any prospective hypnotherapist learns on their training is that any suggestion given under hypnosis must be believable, now I ask you, are you really prepared to believe that I have gone into your stomach and fitted a hypnotic gastric band without any surgical tools and no anaesthetic…. Really!

      This is how the scam works, when you first contact the therapist to enquire about a virtual hypnotic gastric band, they will explain to you that this is a procedure that will require more than one session (anyone who has read any of my previous posts should immediately know this is a scam, because hypnotherapy never needs more than one session). Depending upon who you call you will be quoted anywhere from 4 sessions, essentially, they are going to try and get as many sessions (and money) out of you as possible, this is how the scam works:

      • Session 1 – this session will be anywhere between one and two hours long and will be so the therapist can find out exactly what you want to achieve and why you want a virtual hypnotic gastric band. (I usually find that asking the simple question ‘what would you like help with?’ gives me the information, but never mind)
      • Session 2 – The pre-operation assessment again this session will be between one to two hours long, depending upon how much money you have to waste. (What operation!!)
      • Session 3 – the fitting of the virtual hypnotic gastric band, during this session the therapist will try and convince your subconscious that they have entered your stomach and are fitting the virtual hypnotic gastric band. This session is usually accompanied with operating theatre sound effects.
      • Session 4 – the post operative session, the therapist will explain to you that just like a real band after having a virtual hypnotic gastric band fitted you need to change your diet. They will then give you a session of hypnotherapy to help you change your diet. (This is the only session that may help you, if you are very lucky now and the therapist has any knowledge at all they will give you a session of weight loss hypnotherapy).

      By the time you get to the point where you can start losing weight you will have spent many hundreds or even thousands of pounds.I am a traditional hypnotherapist I offer weight control hypnotherapy. I will change your relationship with food, I will make it so that you are satisfied with 3 small healthy meals a day, I will help you lose the taste for sweet and unhealthy food. You will only need one session and it will only cost £95.

        When someone comes to me for Alcohol dependence hypnotherapy the first question, I always ask them is, what do you enjoy about alcohol or why do you drink. Because if Alcohol dependence hypnotherapy is going to work it is important that my client is being honest with themselves.

        Alcohol dependency Hypnotherapy
        Quit now with one session!

        Thinking about this made me recall a funny memory from my teaching days in Malaysia, I was there teaching psychology and one day one girl in my class asked me if I drank alcohol, as I always believed in being honest with my pupils that indeed I did. Nodding her head, she then asked me why I drank alcohol. Fair question I thought. I told her that sometimes after a hard day at work I might have a glass of vodka, it would help me relax, mind you, I said if I have more than one it can start to make me feel a bit sad, and after two or three I might start talking nonsense and there will be a good chance I might have a headache the next morning.

        I felt also that I should tell her some of the risks of alcohol, so I told her that there is a significant risk of becoming addicted or dependent. I also told her of the risk of damaging your liver and how alcohol has been linked to at least seven different types of cancer. She looked at me with a very deep and piercing star and said, “Sir, I asked you why you drank alcohol”. If like me, you can not answer that question then you need to seriously think about quitting Alcohol dependence hypnotherapy can help you to take back control with just one easy affordable session. I have been a practising hypnotherapist for over 30 years and Alcohol dependence hypnotherapy is one of the more popular therapies that I offer.

          Fear of heights hypnotherapy – What Is Acrophobia?

          Acrophobia is the medical name of a fear of heights. It is fear of heightsunlike a specific phobia such as aerophobia, which is the fear of flying, acrophobia can cause you to fear a whole range of things related to being high up off the ground. Depending on the phobia’s severity, you may become anxious being on a high floor of a building or simply climbing a ladder.

          Fear of heights hypnotherapy – Related conditions

          Certain other fears and phobias related to acrophobia can also occur with it include:

          • Vertigo: This is a medical condition that causes a feeling of spinning and dizziness. See a doctor for tests if you experience vertigo symptoms to rule out any possible neurological conditions.
          • Bathophobia: this is the fear of slopes and or stairs it is is sometimes related to acrophobia. In bathophobia, the sufferer may panic when approaching a steep slope, even if they have no need to climb it. Although many people with bathophobia have acrophobia, most acrophobia sufferers do not also experience bathophobia.
          • Climacophobia: This fear is related to bathophobia, except that it normally happens only when the sufferer thinks about making a climb. If someone suffers from climacophobia, they’re often not anxious to see a steep set of stairs as long as they know they can remain safely at the bottom.
          • Aerophobia: This is the specific fear of flying. Depending on the severity of your fear, you may be afraid of airports and airplanes, or may only feel the fear when you’re in the air.

          Fear of heights hypnotherapy – Symptoms of Acrophobia

          Both psychologically and physically, the physical and emotional response to acrophobia is not unlike the response to any other phobia. They could include:

          Emotional Symptoms: The sufferer may feel a sense of panic when they perceive that they’re high off the ground. They may panic and start to search for something to cling to and find that they’re unable to trust their own sense of balance. Common reactions include descending immediately, crawling on all fours, and kneeling or otherwise lowering your body.

          Physical Symptoms: they may begin to shake, sweat, experience heart palpitations, and even cry or yell out. They may feel terrified and paralyzed, this is known as the fight or flight response. It might even become difficult to think.

          Anxiety and Avoidance: My clients report to me that they will begin to dread situations that may cause them to spend time in high places. For example, they tell me that they worry that an upcoming vacation will put them in a hotel room on a high floor. Some may even  put off home repairs for fear of climbing a ladder. Others have told me that they might avoid visiting friends’ homes if they have balconies or upstairs picture windows.

          However, the one thing that they all have in common is that they can overcome their fear with just one session of fear of heights hypnotherapy.

            Everyone can experience feeling low from time to time.

            Hypnosis for depression
            Help is at hand

            More often than not this will quickly pass, and the person will go back to feeling like their usual selves. However, there are some where this low mood persists and intrudes on everyday life. Depression is a mental health condition that causes the sufferer to feel low for a significant period of time. They may find it near impossible to carry out their day-to-day activities and lose interest in activities which previously they would have taken pleasure from.  In this article I will look at how depression can affect the suffers life and how hypnosis for depression can help.

            Hypnosis for depression – so what is depression?

            Depression is when you have a low or reduced mood for a long time, making it almost impossible for them to perform their usual life activities. The condition can affect different people in different ways and may be mild, severe, or somewhere in-between. The level we consider the severity will in essence depend on how much depression is interfering with their life.

            Hypnosis for depression – different types of depression:

            Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) – This as the name implies is when depression affects the sufferer in certain seasons of the year. of the year.

            Dysthymia – This is when the sufferer has symptoms mild depression continuously for two years or more and is also called chronic depression or persistent depressive disorder.

            Bipolar disorder – This is when the sufferer experience extreme lows and extreme highs commonly referred to as manic episodes.

            Prenatal depression – as the name suggests this is when depression happens during pregnancy.

            Postnatal depression (PND) – I think that most people now know that this is when depression happens after having a baby. It usually affects the mother, but fathers have been known to experience it too.

            Hypnosis for depression – signs of depression

            There are a several different signs of depression. No one sufferer will necessarily have all of them, but it’s important for someone to go to their GP if they’re experiencing symptoms for all of the day, for over two weeks. The signs of depression one should look out for are:

            • a low mood, feeling sad and/or angry
            • lacking in energy
            • losing interest or enjoyment in activities you used to enjoy
            • difficulty concentrating
            • feeling tired more easily
            • low self-confidence
            • different sleeping habits (difficulty sleeping or sleeping more than usual)
            • different eating habits (eating more or less than usual)
            • feeling guilty or feelings of worthlessness.
            • They may find they’re easily annoyed or have a feeling of being numb to everything. They may lose interest in sex or have thoughts of self-harm or even suicide. Talking to someone about how they feel is the first step and the best way to start to feel better.

            Hypnosis for depression – why am I depressed?

            The causes of depression in everyone will be different from person to person. Often the reasons are complicated and there may be more than one factor at play. Some of the most common causes include:

            Childhood experiences – Unpleasant or traumatic experiences in childhood can make a person more vulnerable to depression in their adulthood. They may have experienced trauma, physical, sexual or emotional abuse, bereavement or even had an unstable family environment. Circumstances such as these can affect mental health and make it more likely for someone to experience depression.

            Life events – In some cases that I see, my client’s depression has been triggered by a particular event. Perhaps they may have ended a relationship, lost someone close to them or lost their job. Psychologists Holes and Rhah identified that major life changes like moving, getting married and changing jobs can lead to depression.

            Mental or physical health problems – I sometimes find that other mental health conditions can cause depression in my client. Anxiety, eating disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are conditions I often see linked to depression. If someone struggles with their physical health or if they have chronic pain, they may also find this affects their mood and triggers depression.

            Genetic factors  (the nature or nurture debate) – Much empirical research has demonstrated that if a member of the depressive’s family has depression, then they are more likely to develop the condition themselves. This could be linked to genetic and biological factors (nature), or it may be down to learnt behaviours (nurture).

            Substance abuse – Drinking alcohol or taking recreational drugs may hold appeal or feel like a good way to feel more positive, but they can often make mental health issues worse.

            Hypnosis for depression – An increasingly popular and preferred treatment option to manage and overcome depression is hypnotherapy. This approach works on a subconscious level, using techniques to identify and address the root causes while offering positive suggestions to break negative thinking patterns. Rather than treat the symptoms of depression, hypnotherapy aims to tackle what triggers lead to the depression Hypnosis for depression works because it targets the underlying causes of depression, and completes the “unfinished business” that otherwise continues to recycle as self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviours. With hypnosis for depression, my client can go down deeper into their subconscious mind to where their traumatic experiences, memories are being stored as emotions, which means they can quickly release them from their lives.

            The first thing to consider when choosing a hypnotherapist is the practitioner’s qualifications. Look for a degree qualified mental health care professional — such as a psychologist, psychotherapist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, counsellor, social worker, or medical doctor — who is also a hypnotherapist. Unfortunately, there are many therapists advertising who have nothing more than an online qualification, they will usually claim to have either a diploma or certificate in Hypnotherapy, these are not recognised qualifications. You can also ask if they’re affiliated with any professional associations, such as the International Hypnotherapy Association.

            If for example, a hypnotist uncovers trauma while doing hypnotherapy, they need to know how to treat trauma. In other words, having the education and training to diagnose and treat mental health conditions — which comes from being a degree qualified Psychologist — is a key component in the success of hypnotherapy and of course your safety.

              Hypnotherapy insomnia – No matter who we are, we all

              Hypnotherapy Insomnia
              Restore your sleep

              need sleep. It has a very important role in both our physical and mental well-being. But, sleeping issues, such as insomnia, can make it difficult for some people to get the right amount of sleep. Of course not getting enough sleep can make you feel tired, not getting enough sleep can cause physical illness and increase your chances of heart disease. Mentally, not getting enough sleep can cause anxiety and can make it difficult for you to concentrate.

               Hypnotherapy Insomnia – What is insomnia?

              The common definition of insomnia is a difficulty getting to sleep or staying asleep for long enough to feel refreshed after waking. There won’t be many of us who haven’t experienced a disrupted sleep and we all know how it feels when we can’t seem to fall asleep. It may be that we’re thinking about something we have to do the next day or perhaps have had a coffee just before bed and so find it difficult to fall asleep (onset insomnia). Some people find it easy to fall asleep, but then keep waking up through the night (maintenance insomnia). Whichever applies to you, a rough sleep can leave you feeling tired and cross the following day. Those who suffer from insomnia will experience these feelings regularly. Whichever you suffer one session of hypnotherapy insomnia will help you to get a good night’s sleep.

              Research suggests that a third of people in the UK will suffer from insomnia during their lives, it can affect anyone at any age.

              Hypnotherapy insomnia is a method that many people have found effective. Hypnotherapy insomnia will tackle any known or hidden causes helping you to unwind relax and drop off to sleep. For example, if stress, worry or anxiety are the cause of your insomnia, hypnotherapy insomnia will complement or replace your existing treatment. Solving these issues will then help to bring about restful and relaxing sleep. Perhaps a habit is causing your lack of sleep (such as alcohol) hypnotherapy insomnia can work to break this habit.

                Fear of germs hypnotherapy – What Is Mysophobia?

                The fear of germs is a type of phobia that is

                Fear of germs hypnotherapy
                Free yourself with just one session

                concentrated around an severe and totally irrational fear of germs, dirt, or contamination of any kind. Of course, I am not saying it is abnormal to be careful and to be concerned about issues such as bacteria or viruses, exposure to the bodily fluids, and maintaining good hygiene. However, if a person has mysophobia, these normal acts of being careful become overblown and disruptive to the sufferers, and those around them everyday lives. In my 30+ years of clinical practice I have found the phobia is often manifests itself in the form of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), but clients who don’t have OCD can have it as well. I have found that this phobia is common and can affect people from all walks of life. Just like other phobias it can be easily helped with just one session of fear of germs hypnotherapy.

                Symptoms

                The most common symptoms of mysophobia I have observed include avoidance behaviours that are used to stay clear of exposure to germs or any form of contamination. The most common symptoms I have observed include:

                • Staying away from places that the sufferer perceives contain a lot of germs or dirt
                • Illogical fear of becoming contaminated
                • Excessive and continuous hand washing rituals
                • Obsessing over standards of cleanliness and never being satisfied with same.
                • The overuse of cleaning or sanitizing products
                • An irrational fear of contaminating others.

                If the sufferer of mysophobia is exposed to what they perceive as contamination, they may experience severe symptoms when they are exposed to dirt or bacteria. Such symptoms are:

                • Crying
                • Heart palpitations
                • Shaking
                • Sweating

                These symptoms are referred to a the fight or flight response and often may only occur only when the object of sufferers phobia is visible, as is the case when digging in a garden, or when they believe that germ contact may have occurred, such as when shaking hands with someone or using a doorknob. They may take several showers each day. They might carry and use hand sanitizer frequently. They may be unwilling to use public toilets, share food, or use public transportation.

                But do not despair help is at hand with fear of germs hypnotherapy. With just one easy and affordable session of fear of germs hypnotherapy I will help you to live a normal life.

                The first thing to consider when choosing a hypnotherapist whether for fear of germs hypnotherapy or indeed any other therapy, is the practitioner’s qualifications.

                  hypnotherapy the first question, I always ask them is, what do you enjoy about alcohol or why do you drink. Because if Alcohol dependency hypnotherapy is going to work it is important that my client is being honest with themselves. Thinking about this made me recall a funny memory from my teaching days in Malaysia, I was there teaching psychology and one day one girl in my class asked me if I drank alcohol, as I always believed in being honest with my pupils that indeed I did. Nodding her head, she then asked me why I drank alcohol. Fair question I thought. I told her that sometimes after a hard day at work I might have a glass of vodka, it would help me relax, mind you, I said if I have more than one it can start to make me feel a bit sad, and after two or three I might start talking nonsense and there will be a good chance I might have a headache the next morning.

                  I felt also that I should tell her some of the risks of alcohol, so I told her that there is a significant risk of becoming addicted or dependent. I also told her of the risk of damaging your liver and how alcohol has been linked to at least seven different types of cancer. She looked at me with a very deep and piercing star and said, “Sir, I asked you why you drank alcohol”.

                  If like me, you can not answer that question then you need to seriously think about quitting Alcohol dependency hypnotherapy can help you to take back control with just one easy affordable session.

Just one session of Weight loss hypnosis can prove to be the method to help people come unstuck when it comes to their healthy weight loss efforts.

                    Weight Loss Hypnosis
                    Only one session needed

                    It is reportedly used by celebs, think Adele, Jen An and Nigella Lawson, weight control hypnosis works by “reprograming” the limiting thoughts and feelings that keep people losing and gaining weight regularly.  An remember you will only need one session.

                    What is weight control hypnosis?

                    If you’re trying to lose weight but struggling, weight loss hypnosis may have popped up as an option. Today, let’s start with the basics: What is it and when should it be used?

                    Weight loss hypnosis is the application of hypnotherapy: a therapy which uses relaxation and your everyday experience to help you rewrite unwanted thoughts, behaviours and emotions.

                    In general terms, weight loss hypnosis is the process of hypnotising a patient into a deeply relaxed state. Here, I will use techniques and methods to change thought patters and bring about behavioural changes.

                    Weight loss hypnosis can be used to help you understand why you are struggling to maintain or get to a weight that you are happy with or help you to the reasons why you might be sabotaging achieving any success. Hypnotherapy is ultimately a tool that engages the imagination and uses the way you think to better your life.

                    When choosing a hypnotherapist it is very important that you find a reputable and qualified therapist who is a member of and governed by the ethics ad standards of the International Hypnotherapy Association.
