What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a natural state of heightened awareness that occurs within all of us. It allows us to open our minds to beneficial suggestions and it allows the client to use their imagination to help make positive changes.
A brief way to describe a feeling similar to hypnosis is that moment you've been watching the tv and not heard a word that's been said, even though you've been staring straight at the screen. Alternatively it's the car journey where you wonder how you got to that certain place. Your mind is on autopilot and must have been in control, otherwise there would probably have been an accident.
What can hypnotherapy help with?
Anyone suffering from epilepsy, schizophrenia or severe depression should consult their GP before contacting a hypnotherapist.
Why choose hypnotherapy to stop smoking?
Hypnosis can be used to help a person stop smoking. By putting the mind into an altered state, one becomes more susceptible to suggestion, and for ex-smokers, this can help with stress and can foster a positive mindset for smoking cessation.

What will my hypnotherapy sessions involve?
Your first session will involve taking a detailed history from you including medical, lifestyle and information regarding your motivations and reasonings for becoming a non smoker.
I will then work with you to plan a positive programme to take you forward to your ultimate goal ... smoking cessation.
I will also ensure you have no conditions which are contra-indications to hypnosis.
Each session will then be designed personally for you to ensure that all contributing issues from the past are addressed and that after each session, you continue to feel more and more motivated and can plan your more positive future, knowing you have the control.
