clinical Hypnotherapy

What is Clinical Hypnotherapy?


Our minds are composed of 3 parts the conscious mind, the subconscious and the unconscious.  We make decisions in our conscious mind to change things but if the long term programming in the subconscious is working to the old programmes, habits, ways of thinking.  It makes change very difficult and we find ourselves struggling, unable to create what we want.  Hypnosis relaxes the conscious mind and allows you to work with the subconscious, creating deep, lasting change, new habits and ways of thinking that support your desired success, happiness and well-being.

We agree the goals you want to achieve and under hypnosis I direct you towards removing the barriers and installing the ways of thinking that you choose to enable your success.  I draw on a range of therapies to support this process NLP, coaching, counselling skills, emotional intelligence, CBT, psychotherapy and so on.

How Can Hypnotherapy Help You?

Hypnotherapy can help you overcome many problems for example reduce anxiety, panic attacks, stress, low mood, eating problems, addictions, smoking, life changes such as grief, loss, divorce, redundancy, depression, sleep problems and feelings of low self-worth to name but a few.

Clients attend a 30 minute FREE consultation to discuss their needs and for many, an effective course of treatments lasts for between 3 and 6 sessions, the length of treatment will depend on the individual’s needs and goals.

Fears and Phobias

Hypnotherapy can be very successful in helping you put aside these very real fears e.g. flying, snakes, injections, spiders, snakes, exam nerves etc.  Clients usually find 3 sessions gets the results they want.

For more specific conditions such as smoking Fiona’s approach has proved very effective with a growing number of people.

Smoke Stop Treatments

Clients attend a 30 minute FREE consultation to discuss their needs and then attend a one hour preparation session followed, no longer than a week later, by the STOP Smoking session lasting an hour and a half.  Clients book a final booster, one hour session a week later. 

Hypnotherapy and Weight Issues.

You can join a group, opt for specialist, individual sessions or hypno-gastric band therapy.

4 week groups help you develop the skills to train your mind & meet your needs in more helpful ways, so following your chosen healthy diet feels natural and normal to you.  Ask for details of the next group.

Individual treatment plans, delivered one to one can help with more complex, emotional barriers to weight loss.  Usually 6 1 hour sessions are most effective, however this will be discussed during the free 30 minute consultation.

Hypno-gastric-band therapy can help those with more than 2 stone to lose, alongside an individual plan of treatment to address the mind issues that are causing the weight gain.  During hypnosis, a virtual gastric band is fitted and follow up sessions help to remove the barriers to your long term success remaining at your ideal weight.  Treatment includes 1 x 90 mins session, plus 5 x one hour sessions. Plus a free 30 minute consultation to discuss your individual needs.
