Hypnotherapy could help with
Inner peace and calm
The stresses and strains of everyday life can be handled so very differently when dealt with viewed from a perspective of inner peace and calmness. In a calm and peaceful frame of mind you can easily find the solutions to those everyday problems that, at times, appear insurmountable. Clear your mind of clutter and discover a new you!
Often, many people find it difficult to relax and wind down after a busy day. Through learning self-hypnosis you can learn how to physically and mentally relax, leading to a more quality sleep time, a feeling of renewed energy, and the ability to cope with the next busy day ahead.
People differ with the amount of stress that they can cope with and many would argue that a small amount of stress is needed to enable you to function in a competitive workplace. However in many cases factors, other than your work, may contribute to stress in a bigger way, e.g., family turmoil, divorce, bereavement, and financial troubles are amongst the main causes of stress.
Hypnotherapy is a way to manage high stress levels, achieve life balance, reverse the effect that stress has on your physical and mental state, promote good health, and thereafter increase the quality of your life significantly.
If you have feelings of self-doubt, or in some way lack in self-confidence, then you are not alone! Indeed, many people find it much easier to put themselves down by negative thoughts than accept themselves as they are. Therapeutic hypnosis can help you to recognise and let go of much of this negativity, leading the way to an increased confidence and a real capacity to improve many aspects of your life.
Anything from the fear of flying to the fear of spiders – left unchecked deep seated fears often turn to full blown phobias. Sometimes thoughts or memories are processed following a trauma, and are remembered or even stored away in our unconscious mind. Often, very personal anxieties build up around these thoughts over a length of time leading to obsessive behaviour patterns that are difficult for us to understand. Through hypnosis these memories, fears and phobias, can be identified and dealt with as part of a desensitising process and leading to positive emotional freedom.
For those who are experiencing problems or conditions that are a direct result of a previous event or trauma, (identified or deep seated in the unconscious mind), Regression Therapy is very useful. It can also be very effective as part of the healing process for the client. The main aim of this kind of therapy is to ‘recover’ memories or feelings that may underline the present problem, and to ‘re-interpret’, or ‘reconstruct’ the memory with a more positive outcome. To further this point – it is not the actual traumatic event that causes the client a problem in the here and now, it is the memory of the event or trauma that can manifest to a negative pattern of behaviour.
Like many people, who need to shed a few pounds, I have tried every diet in the book! – from starvation one week to filling my plate with protein and fibre the next. However, it wasn’t until I addressed the real reason for my continuing need to overeat that I was able to change my attitude toward the food on my plate. Hypnotherapy is safe, and a natural technique that can help you take control of your weight, and also give you the motivation you may need to positively make changes to your lifestyle.
As with weight loss, understanding and then addressing the reasons for smoking will be of great value when giving up the habit. Hypnotherapy can assist you to take control over your life, giving you the motivation to break the habit of smoking, and make positive long lasting changes to your lifestyle.

Results prove that NLP techniques involve a process of creating fast and long lasting change to your life style, and in helping you to get the life that you want.
Unlike other therapies, NLP starts from the here and now without looking back to 'what went wrong and why'. It's more of an exploration of 'where we want to be' and offers us the tools to get there.
NLP is a fantastic technique when used in combination with, or as a follow up from hypnosis – helping to rid of unwanted behaviour patterns and confirm new thought processes.
EFT has been proven effective in the release of negative emotions that keep us from moving forward with our lives, and its has been widely used in cases of trauma and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety associated with abuse, pain relief, and anger management.
EFT has also shown great results in the combat of food cravings that are often associated with weight problems, for example: sweets, biscuits, chocolate, and crisps. Based on non invasive acupressure EFT has usually rapid and long lasting results.

The use of hypnosis in the lead up to childbirth is about having a positive comfortable and easier childbirth experience.
How is this possible?
Mums-to-be, along their birthing partners where appropriate, are taught some very simple techniques, including the use of self-hypnosis, visualisation and breathing methods in preparation of the birth.
Pain Management skills are taught to help boost confidence, develop a positive attitude, and reduce the fear of childbirth, empowering the mum-to-be through a sense of being in control.
Therefore relaxation through hypnosis helps to bring about a desired physiological and mental state.
Whilst it is recognised that things don’t always go according to plan, even during a relaxed state, if we take fear and anxiety out of the equation the vast majority of births proceed normally.
Through relaxation and controlled breathing hypnosis sends a positive message to the body that needs to produce the endorphins that will act as a natural anaesthesia.
