private psychologist - hypnotherapyHypnosis is a natural state of mental focus and heightened awareness in which brain activity slows and suggestions for change are accepted. In a state of hypnosis it is easier to access memories which relate to current problems and difficulties. Once accessed the memories can be updated allowing  more helpful habits and behaviours to be formed.

Stress reduction - a combination of deep relaxation, guided imagery and mindfulness over 6 sessions to manage episodes of stress.

Weight loss – Hypnotherapy can make it much easier to lose excess weight. A course of 6 Hypnotherapy sessions over 2-3 months combines techniques and includes boosting motivation to eat less and take exercise, enjoy and prefer smaller portions and healthy foods and reduces indiscriminate snacking.

Dental Fears – a long standing collaboration with local dentists The Cedar Clinic has meant that many people with dental (and other) fears and phobias, teeth grinding, oversensitive gag reflex, needle and medical phobias are now able to relax at the dentist.

IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) – Hypnotherapy is increasingly recognised by Gastro-enterologists as a valid treatment for those with IBS. A course of 5 sessions over 3 months is usually required in addition to between session recordings.

Medically Unexplained infertility – I collaborate with a local acupuncturist in a combined approach for couples having difficulty to conceive.

Phobias – Following an interview about Hypnotherapy for cat and dog phobias (which featured in the Guardian and more recently in National Animal Welfare Trust Magazine) people often travel to see me for help with their animal phobias. Hypnotherapy and other techniques can be successfully used to treat other phobias such as Clown phobia, fear of flying. 3-6 sessions is usually required.
