Anxiety

Approximately 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in the UK each year. Anxiety disorder is becoming increasingly common in society and can be extremely debilitating and over-whelming. Anxiety disorder is a heightened feeling of unease, worry or fear and sufferers can experience both psychological and physical symptoms which include:

  • Feeling restless or worried
  • A sense of dread
  • Difficultly concentrating
  • Dizziness
  • Feeling sick
  • Shortness of breath
  • Excessive sweating

Hypnotherapy is extremely effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders.

The Anxiety UK website states that hypnosis successfully treats anxiety disorder “more easily and quickly than many other forms of treatment” because hypnosis is able to target the root of the problem whilst using the power of suggestion to bring about lasting change.

Smoking Cessation

Cigarette smoking is the single greatest cause of illness and premature death in the UK. Despite nearly 100,000 people in the UK dying from smoking-related illnesses each year, 1 in 5 are still regular smokers. Quitting smoking can be very challenging, especially if you are a heavy smoker and/or have smoked for a long time.

It is never to late to stop smoking and the benefits to your health are enormous including more energy, improved immune system, longer life expectancy, less stress, younger looking skin and better breathing.

Research shows that Hypnotherapy is by far the most effective method used to stop smoking. The success rate of smoking cessation using hypnotherapy is nearly 70%, which is extremely impressive when compared to a success rate of 5% for quitting alone or 25% when using nicotine replacement products.

Weight Loss

It’s commonly accepted that healthy eating and regular exercise leads to weight loss. However, in modern society we are constantly tempted to veer away from healthy eating regimes by media food advertisements, the convenience of fast food and regular social outings.

Many of us have developed an unhealthy relationship with food and/or have tried a whole host of diets that ultimately only work temporarily. This is because most of us do not change our mindset or our negative thoughts about eating and what we put in our bodies.

Hypnosis can be highly effective in challenging these mindsets and moments of temptations and through powerful suggestion techniques can help you develop a positive relationship with food and exercise, which is the key to long-term weight loss.

Insomnia

Insomnia is a sleep disorder where the person struggles to fall asleep, stay asleep and/or has inadequate sleep at night. With the stresses of modern life, insomnia is becoming increasingly common with 30-40% of people suffering with some form of insomnia each year in the UK.

If left untreated, insomnia can lead to a variety of symptoms which can really interfere with everyday functioning including:

  • Fatigue
  • Lack of concentration/brain fog
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Hypnotherapy is highly successful in treating insomnia permanently. By accessing the sub-conscious mind, hypnosis aims to uncover the root cause of your inability to sleep. Once the cause is established, a tailored treatment plan can commence.

An important aspect of dealing with insomnia is teaching you how to relax. This may involve muscle relaxation techniques, breathing techniques and/or dealing with underlying issues that are preventing you from relaxing.
