Psychotherapy & Hypnotherapy


Helping you to ‘change your mind’



Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis as a means of communicating with the subconscious mind to bring about therapeutic change.

The ethical hypnotherapist will be a professionally trained hypnotist and therapist who acts as a facilitator, to help clients to help themselves.

As in any therapeutic relationship, for hypnotherapy to be effective and beneficial a combination of trust and rapport must be present.

About 85% of the population are believed to be susceptible to hypnosis (if they want to be) and actually only a light depth of trance is needed for many therapeutic purposes. Hypnotherapy can help with:

• Stop Smoking

• Weight Control

• Fears and Phobias

• Habits

• Anxiety/Panic Attacks

• Confidence

• Better Sleep

All treatments used are based on research and/or success in clinical practice.  As a complementary therapist, not an alternative one, I recognise the importance of working side-by-side with medical practitioners and in certain circumstances (e.g. where there is also a medical condition) will need to request permission to contact your GP prior to providing any treatment.
