What can hypnotherapy help with?
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
PTSD is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, in other words, the stress you feel after you have experienced a trauma. A trauma is just another name for a scary or upsetting experience.
Hypnotherapy for phobias
Do you suffer fear, anxiety or worry when you have to give a presentation at work? Does fear of flying spoil your holiday? Or is your fear about spiders, birds, injections, or something else? If the feelings are powerful and overwhelming you probably have a phobia, and I can help you get rid of it.
Hypnotherapy for anxiety and worry
Do you become worried about specific events like taking a driving test or exams, or meeting new people? Or does your anxiety affect you in all kinds of situations? Anxiety can restrict your activities and be physically and emotionally debilitating so perhaps it's time to get some help to relax, improve your confidence, reduce worrying and start to enjoy life again.
Hypnotherapy for stress
We get stressed when we feel the demands that are being placed on us are more than we can really cope with. It's true that you sometimes can't avoid the situations that make you feel stressed, but I can help you to learn coping strategies which give you more 'resilience' - the ability to cope with them better.
Hypnotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
It's generally believed that IBS is aggravated by stress rather than caused by it, but we know that stressful events are often connected both with the first appearance of the condition and with times when symptoms flare up and become more severe. It stands to reason, then, that if you learn to relax, improve your general sense of wellbeing and respond more creatively to stressful situations, you might have fewer IBS attacks. Gut-directed hypnosis aims to help you do this.
Hypnotherapy for children and teenagers
Children and teens can struggle with a wide range of issues, arising from school, exams or family: stress or anxiety, bedwetting, low confidence or self-esteem, even (on occasion) smoking or weight control. Read on to see if hypnotherapy is the help you're looking for.
Hypnotherapy for unwanted habits
Some habits are useful (or at least convenient), but some are not. They're the ones like smoking, unnecessary checking or biting your nails. You might hardly even notice when you do these things, and this can lead you to believe you have no choice. But there are ways to bring them under control.
Hypnotherapy for confidence and self esteem
Do you lack confidence in some situations? Or do you feel that everything is a struggle, that you may not be quite 'good enough' or that you have to 'put up a front' all the time so people will like or respect you? If so, it's possible you have low confidence or self-esteem, but this can be helped.
Relax - Why breathing exercises work
We're often told to take a deep breath or two if we’re feeling stressed, angry or anxious but does it work? Clients report back to me that, yes, it does. But how can such a simple thing help you to deal with such strong emotions?
