Hypnotherapy Treatments

Hypnotherapy can be used to treat a wide range problems by easing the symptoms of some physiological problems and resolving psychologically based issues such as phobias and bad habits. The main treatments are detailed below and are Stress, Anxiety, Phobias, Anger Management, Smoking Cessation, Past Life Regression (PLRT), Weight Loss, Self-Defeating Behavioural Patterns such smoking, vaping, Nail Biting and Skin Picking. There are many other issues I work with so please get in touch to discuss your own personal situation.

The number of recommended sessions may vary (approximated below). I have found that most of the time, less sessions are required due to their effectiveness and success which clients are experiencing. Full Terms and Conditions are available on Booking.

Hypnotherapy for Phobias
3 sessions £50 per 1 hour session

If you have a spider phobia, apologies, but looking at this picture can highlight the problems that people with phobias face. I have severely cropped the image to protect any Arachnophobes. Even seeing pictures of the culprits can send some clients into a hot, sweaty, panic. Our fight/flight/freeze response kicks in and we cannot seem to control it. Then we start to avoid the objects/places/situations where we may encounter them which is where our lives are impacted and limited. We can develop phobias from our own experiences, sometimes long forgotten or we can learn and inherit phobias from others.

Common phobias are of course spiders, heights, dogs, needles and dentists but there are phobias which are based on seemingly everyday objects or even farm animals. Some examples are phobias of buttons (koumpounophobia ), mirrors (Eisoptrophobia) and Hens (Alektorophobia). Regardless of the source of fear, the fears are real and can be terrifying. Rationality is not relevant when the emotional right brain overtakes with it’s primitive but protective response.

I use NLP techniques to help change the deep rooted automatic responses whilst you observe from a safe state of dissociation and deep relaxation. Together we work towards that ‘thing’ becoming totally irrelevant to your thoughts in your everyday life as you free yourself to enjoy lost moments/places and experiences which were previously out of bounds to you.

Hypnotherapy for Weight Management
4 – 6 sessions, £50 per 1 hour session

Hypnotherapy is a great tool to use to help in your transformation. Consuming more food than we burn results in weight gain. Hypnotherapy focuses on many aspects of our relationship with food and how it has literally shaped our bodies and minds. Together with clients, I work to uncover root causes for emotional eating, low self-image, low-confidence and self-esteem issues from sometimes as far back as our infant years. Together we work as a team to identify troublesome foods, danger times/situations and triggering emotions. Then the fun starts and all clients have to do in session is relax whilst I start the process of helping them to re-program their old subconscious patterns of eating for comfort/reward/solace/stress/protection. As with all change, commitment from the client is key, however it will feel natural and you will naturally want to eat better and move more. Hypnotherapy focuses on choices rather than amounts of food. Eating better and not less is the framework for natural and sustainable weight loss. Some clients have found themselves buying a new wardrobe, hiring a personal trainer and starting regular exercise purely because it feels good to do this for themselves and feels good to be free from the chains of years of emotional eating.

Past Life Regression Therapy (PLRT) 2hr Session £120

PLRT within a spiritual context – This is considered as a Holistic healing modality by some who may believe that our souls hold onto emotions from past life traumas and experiences. These may subconsciously re-surface in the form of unexplained phobias, difficult relationships and re-occurring negative experiences, all of which cannot be contributed to experiences in a current lifetime.

PLRT within a metaphorical context – Even if you are a completely logical and scientific person, your subconscious may offer insights and provide solutions to you through your past life regression. You may experience life as a King or Queen for example and within this archetype, there maybe lessons or messages for you which will help you in your current situation or life time.

A note on Past Life Phobias – There’s a good amount of research on people who believe in reincarnation, and who claim they remember details from their past lives. One University of Virginia study found that some children who claim to recall their previous lives suffer “unusual” phobias that they say are related to those past lives—and specifically the way they died. For example, a child might have an intense fear of water that she attributes to drowning in her past life.’ – Heid, M. (2018a). 29 Weird Phobias That Really Do Exist. [online] Prevention.

Hypnotherapy for Children
3 sessions £50 per 1 hour session

Now more than ever, children are growing up facing many more social, economical and relational challenges which can affect their formative years. Some of the most common issues Hypnotherapy can help children and young people with are anxiety around Exams, Driving tests, attending school, Phobias of dogs, dentists, flying, needles, the dark, bullying and Bed-wetting (Nocturnal Enuresis).

Hypnotherapy for Children is a great way, through play, stories, modelling and imagination to deliver empowering tools to children. Children spend much more of their time in self-hypnosis through play and fantasy than adults do, so working with them at this age involves applying techniques which are different from those used when working with adults. Parents and Primary Care givers play an important role in their child’s sessions and will be required to be present during each session. You as a parent/primary carer, will be given tools to support your child between sessions and after the sessions have finished so that your child can go on following their new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving with new strength, resilience and more space to be doing what they should be doing, reaching their full potentials.

Fees – Sessions per child are £50 an hour and are modelled on a three session plan (this may vary according to your child’s individual issue, needs and progress).

I prefer face to face sessions with children. Primary care givers are required to be present for every session. Current Enhanced DBS certificate and professional insurance held.

Please note, that I always work within my competence. If your child is Neurodiverse, then you should contact a Hypnotherapist who is specially trained in Hypnotherapy for Neurodiverse children. Treatments will be tailored taking on board your child’s specific sensory requirements.

Hypnosis for Stress Relief
4-6 sessions £50 per 1 hour session

Most stress is triggered by external events and situations that involve change in some form. We as humans react badly to changes especially unexpected ones such as job loss, bereavement, relocation or divorce. All types of stress (with the exception of Eustress) can lead to more serious health issues such as insomnia, depression, IBS, loss of appetite, loss of libido, increased blood pressure and risk of heart disease. Treating Stress as the root cause can reduce the chances of developing more serious stress-related illnesses, some of which are listed above. Providing clients with SELF-HYPNOSIS tools to cope in everyday life with stress is a essential part of this treatment. We can take you to a beach somewhere, maybe a lush green garden or a bright, warm, sunny woodland glade to refill your body and soul with peace and tranquility all from the comfort of our therapy space. Hypnotherapy gives your subconscious tools which help with coping and reducing stress levels at your command.

Hypnotherapy for Anxiety 4-6 sessions, £50 per 1 hour session

Anxiety is can be frightening and usually comes out of nowhere. Hypnotherapy most importantly helps to relax you which is the opposite biological state to that which anxiety brings on. Mindfulness tools are used in hypnosis to remind you of your surroundings, to connect you with our body so whenever you feel overwhelmed back in your everyday life, you can just drift by anxious thoughts. The idea is that within the state of calm hypnosis, your subconscious may reveal the root cause of your anxiety. Simply by bringing the unconscious to your conscious, you are already starting to break the cycle of anxiety. Our primitive monkey minds are always there to ensure we are kept safe, but living in a constant state of hyper-arousal can really debilitate us. When you start to avoid your sources of anxiety such as people, driving, new places, activities, your life can become very frustrating and limited. Long bouts of anxiety can develop into phobias, bring on dis-ease such as diabetes, stomach ulcers and heart problems.
