    What is Hypnotherapy and NLP?

    Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is based on the latest brain research and neuroscience findings.

    The evidence shows that there is no need to revisit the past in order to move forward and make the changes that you wish to make.

    Hypnotherapy is a wonderfully gentle therapy for the mind which can give excellent results. Whether you’re struggling with anxiety or depression, or perhaps wanting to lose weight or stop smoking, or even wanting to move on from a phobia –

    As a qualified master of Neuro-Linguistic Programming since 2005, I trained in Hypnotherapy with Holly Wincote and I now combine the techniques of NLP with techniques of Hypnotherapy. I specialise in anchoring a client’s past experience of confidence, power and happiness in such a way in which they can be recreated and harnessed by a technique which I demonstrate to the client.

    Neuro-Linguistic Programming has become increasingly accepted over recent years, as a form of Applied Psychology; it combines particularly well with Hypnotherapy, to enable progress to be made in overcoming the effects of events and experiences that may be holding you back form enjoying life to the full.

    What can this help you with?

  • Reducing anxiety or depression symptoms
  • Overcome your phobia or fear.
  • Deal with post traumatic stress.
  • Improve self-esteem and confidence.
  • Long term weight loss goals.
  • Stop smoking.
  • Coping with grief.
  • Reduce stress.
  • Better quality sleep.
  • Manage chronic pain.
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
  • What happens during a treatment?

    I offer the first session free of charge, and this is used to get to know the client and explain something of the history of hypnosis and common misconceptions. I explain that there is no magic or stagecraft involved and that the client always has control of the situation and can leave at any point they choose. I emphasise that I can give no guarantee of success but I can assure them that at the end of the session or treatment period they will feel better and more hopeful. I use suggestions and imagery to eject unwanted thoughts and unwanted mental processes.

    Central to all this is my explaining how the subconscious affects conscious thoughts and decisions.

    Milton Erickson was a world famous hypnotherapist who used the unwanted condition as part of the healing process. I use the analogy of an unarmed combatant using his opponents’ energy and aggression against him or herself.

    Having completed the free introductory session I generally have an idea of what the client wants and needs so that we can work together. I would also expect the client to state whether he or she feels that hypnotherapy might help them. I encourage the client to express these feelings honestly.

    I also use the technique of modelling so that, when in trance the client is encouraged to picture someone they admire and imagine they have a resource to imitate desired characteristics possessed by the model. I believe that everyone has resources of which they may be unaware so I try to enable clients to tap in to their gifts, achievements and qualities which will enable them to go through an ego-strengthening routine which is a central technique in hypnotherapy. Part of this process involves what is known in N.L.P as reframing so that where appropriate, the client may be encouraged to see that the condition about which they seek help may have positive aspects.

    As a courtroom lawyer I have used extensive communication skills, for example, the use of humour, empathy and rapport which a good advocate needs in dealing successfully with a judge and jury. I use these as relaxation techniques and as part of a healing process. Again, as a courtroom advocate I know how to use my voice dynamics as part of good communication skills. Many of my clients have said that my speaking voice and manner are comforting. My belief which I seek to embed in the client’s subconscious, when in trance, is that no one need be a victim of addiction, stress, lack of self esteem or confidence. My favourite technique as a form of induction is to describe the client being in a place or setting in which they feel comfortable and happy, for example, a beach, a mountain in which they can feel safe. As an advocate having certain literary skills I am adept at painting a vivid picture in which the client can see themself.
