Hypnotherapy works!
Think differently


Everyday life can be extremely stressful but it is how we deal with that stress that changes our perception of it. Anxiety has a physical effect on the body and because mind and body are closely linked, a physical ailment can often be cured by dealing with whatever stresses a person is under. I have had clients who have suffered serious back pain which then ‘magically cleared up’ once the ‘root cause’ of the anxiety in their lives was addressed.

Anxiety can cause insomnia which then creates its own ‘cycle’ by running the body down even more physically as it tries to deal with the mental strains and stresses. I provide support CDs and teach self hypnosis so that the good work is re-enforced between sessions and to aid mental relaxation prior to sleeping.

Links between stress and poor health include:         

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Colitis
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Hay fever
  • Heart attack
  • High blood pressure
  • Indigestion
  • Insomnia
  • Menstrual difficulties
  • Migraine
  • back problems
  • Overactive thyroid gland
  • Peptic ulcers
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Skin Disorders
  • Tuberculosis

IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) is often triggered by stress and hypnotherapy is regarded as a leading method by which to treat this. Managing the root cause of your stress could be the single element that changes your quality of life. Quite often the stress doesn’t change but what does is your perception of it, which then creates a deep shift in attitudes and behaviours that impacts into all areas of your life.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) develops after a stressful event or an exceptionally threatening and serious trauma, the resulting symptoms are recurrent dreams, ‘triggers’ that set off memories and flashbacks, insomnia, depression, intense distress and a feeling of being unable to move on with your life as a result.

People can suffer with this for years due to the memory of the triggering event not being processed correctly by the brain which is why time alone doesn’t necessarily heal. Trauma in childhood keeps the person stuck and they experience the emotions as if it is still happening today, this has a serious knock on effect into the perception of day to day life.  This technique actively moves and re-processes the memory into the right side of the brain, allowing the person to move on and experiencing a significant reduction of symptoms, resulting in an almost magical feeling of relief.

I use a combination of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitising & Reprocessing) NLP and hypnosis to work with PTSD and its related symptoms.

EMDR is a very powerful technique which I have used to treat a wide variety of issues from serious trauma such as rape, sexual abuse, physical abuse, murder and assault to combating ‘everyday’ issues such as food cravings, anxiety and phobias. I work with people to get through serious trauma using this technique and have many happy testimonials behind me from clients who have ‘gotten their lives back’ after our sessions.
