Gemma Anne Gibbons DSFH, MAfSFH, I am Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. I offer treatments for a variety of anxiety related disorders, hypno-birthing, fertility issues, smoking cessation and weight management.
The anxiety disorders include specific phobias, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), depression, panic attacks and trichotillomania (nervous compulsion to pull out hair)
I won't ask you to regurgitate your past traumas instead preferring to focus on the future you wish to achieve. I offer an initial consultation to allow you to make up your own mind about whether I am the right therapist for you. During this initial consultation, you will be able to ask any questions that you need to and I will take a brief history from you before explaining how the brain works in simple straight forward terms. This often helps to reassure people that they will be soon be able to regain control of their life and return to being their real selves. I give a CD or download during the initial consultation and this is yours to keep.
Hypnotherapy sessions contain a blend of hypnotherapy and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. Based on the latest research and neuroscience, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy brings about fast, long-lasting results.
During the treatment, you control the number and frequency of sessions. However, I do recommend that we begin by seeing each other weekly before spreading the appointments out to suit you.
I am based in Manchester City Centre (just off Deansgate) and also at The Worsley Centre

Some Reviews -
Gemma was so welcoming and such a lovely person. I was worried and very anxious before coming to the hypnotherapy sessions for my bulimia and anxiety struggles. She put me such at ease straight away and really looked forward to the sessions each week. I see her as a friend and was very comfortable and could relax. She explained the science behind hypnotherapy and about the brain which really helped me relax as I tend to be quite stubborn. She showed me techniques which I still practice and will definitely in the future go to her whenever needed. I can be honest and trust her to help me and she really really has! I'm in a much better place and cannot thank her enough. 100% recommend Gemma!!!! and this is after seeing several therapists previously and was losing faith xx
At a time when I just wanted to take stock of my life Gemma gave me the tools to take control. Hypnotherapy is not something I have ever considered before but would highly recommend Gemma's sessions. She is professional, welcoming and the sessions are so relaxing and refreshing. I have learnt so much which I now use in both my professional and personal life. Thanks Gemma X
I recently had a series of hypo birthing sessions provided by Gemma. Such a professional and relaxing service. Gemma is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic this certainly helps you learn. I was able to use her techniques to have a calming and no pain relief labour giving birth under 3 hours. I would recommend this to anyone as part of the preparation for labour.
I've had a fear of flying for 20 years, but recently took and international sales role involving a lot of travelling so needed a cure. From the start Gemma made me feel at ease, explained what the therapy entailed and the desired outcome. She has a very warm personality which also assists in the treatment I believe. After 3 sessions I travelled on 4 flights to Cairo and back without one scare !!! Amazing, would not hesitate to recommend this therapy and Gemma to anyone.
I was dubious about hypnotherapy but decided to give it a go. I'm so glad I did. Gemma puts you at ease straight away. She goes into great detail about how the brain works and how she can help you with your problem. Would definitely recommend to anyone
Monday to Saturday, Evening and Early morning appointment are available on request
