Hypnotherapy is a complementary therapy and should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical help regarding any health issues.
Always consult your doctor before having any complementary therapy, including hypnotherapy.
Anxiety can show itself in many ways. From feeling worried about your health, money, work, school and relationships to feeling overwhelmed and having panic attacks, agoraphobia and feeling frightened in social situations.
Anxiety is normal and exists due to a set of bodily functions that have helped us survive from our cave man days. When we feel anxious our flight and fight response is activated, triggering a racing heart, sweaty palms, butterflies and churning in the stomach, and hyperventilation (over breathing).
Anxiety can make you imagine that your life is worse than it is but Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can empower you to imagine your life in a new way.
What will your life be like when you are free from anxiety? You can feel calm and peaceful and in control of your life.
Fears and Phobia
Fear is a natural response to a dangerous situation activating our flight and fight response. It helps to protect us, however, when these fears start to take over our life and stop us from functioning normally it becomes a phobia and problematic.
People can develop phobias to anything including flying, spiders, heights, speaking in public, crowds and many more.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can treat phobias in just 4 sessions.
Picture your life when you are free of your fear and phobia and being able to live your life.
If you have trouble falling asleep, struggle to stay asleep or wake too early then you have a sleep disorder. It can cause you to feel exhausted and unable to function properly.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a fantastic way to relax and reduce your stress which will help you to sleep better and improve you day.
What will it be like to wake in the morning after a full night's restful sleep feeling energised and refreshed?
Through personal experience, I have found hypnotherapy to work extremely well in helping with the symptoms of migraine. I have suffered from migraines since I was 11 years old. I get aura, loss of vision in one eye, numbness down one side of my body, my tongue goes numb, I find it difficult to speak and formulate words, I vomit and the pain is like an ice pick stabbing through my eye and over one side of my head. I just can not function. They last about 24 - 48 hours. Thankfully they are infrequent but sometimes the fear of getting one can be just as debilitating. However, I have been able to use hypnotherapy to help with the symptoms of migraines for myself and can show you how as well.
Grief and bereavement
Grief is a natural reaction to loss. There is no length of time for grief. If you're suffering after losing a family member or friend, pet or the ending of a relationship then Solution Focused therapy can help. Bereavement can make you feel lost in life, causing anxiety, guilt and anger.
I can support you to process these difficult emotions and empower you to enjoy your future.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you to gain control of your eating habits. It's not about stopping you from enjoying the treats in life, but instead helping you to adjust your thought patterns and behaviour around food.
I can encourage you to change your relationship with food, with no more comfort eating or habitual eating.
Imagine feeling better about yourself, full of energy and vitality after losing any excess weight.
There are many symptoms associated with menopause such as feeling increasingly anxious and stressed, sleep disorders, weight gain and low self esteem and confidence concerns. Medication can help yet sometimes women don't want to or are unable to take HRT but hypnotherapy can help.
Hot flushes can be one of the main symptoms women have when going through the menopause. Hypnotherapy can help you to cope with hot flushes but I can also teach you a 'self hypnosis' technique, where you are in control the whole time, which can lessen the intensity and duration which in turn reduces the fear surrounding having one.
I like everything to be evidenced based and there is research which concluded that clinical hypnosis resulted in significant reductions in self-reported and physiologically measured hot flushes as well as hot flush scores in post-menopausal women.
Please see my dedicated menopause page for more information on how hypnotherapy can help with some of the associated symptoms of menopause and perimenopause.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
If you have been diagnosed with IBS by a doctor and you are struggling to control your symptoms then Hypnotherapy is highly effective.
NICE recommend hypnotherapy as a way to cope with the symptoms.
If you think your life could be better, you're right, it can!
Life is too precious to be burdened by anxiety.
