What is Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a mixture of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy. It combines the benefits of addressing underlying issues with a relaxing trance state. I specialise in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, which has the added benefit of focusing on the solutions to problems, instead of taking you back over the past, which enables people to get better quicker.

When in this state the subconscious mind accepts and acts on the positive and beneficial suggestions that enable the mind to focus on the changes you want to make, when the mind is relaxed it finds it easy to make the decisions needed to promote lasting change. As the client, all you need is the intention to change, enabling us to work together to bring about that change.

Trance is a state we enter every day, several times a day. It’s part of healthy brain activity. We experience it while driving, day dreaming, listening to music, reading a book, even watching TV!

Hypnotherapy is a natural and gentle way to treat many kinds of emotional, nervous or psychological problems.  It can also be helpful in motivation, whether that be for improved sports performance, or for increased success and confidence in business or personal life. The potential therapeutic applications for hypnotherapy are endless.

Hypnotherapy can help -

  • Phobias

  • Public Speaking

  • Sports Motivation and Performance

  • Confidence

  • Changing Habits

  • OCD

  • Persistent (Chronic) Pain

  • Anxiety and Stress

  • Depression

  • Anger Management

  • Weight loss

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

  • Panic Attacks

  • Sleep Disorders

  • Quitting Smoking


These are just some of the main areas that people find Hypnotherapy can benefit. Many conditions are caused by, or made worse by, underlying anxiety or by disrupted sleep patterns. Anxiety can present itself in a variety of ways, resulting in unhelpful emotional and physical symptoms.

Poor sleep can leave us feeling irritable, unable to cope or to make proper decisions and generally feeling lacklustre. Solution Focus Hypnotherapy can help by improving these patterns and with better sleep and less anxiety we are then able to enjoy life fully.
