George Lewis, DSFH, HPD, George Lewis Hypnotherapy
At George Lewis Hypnotherapy, we use a Solution Focused (SF) approach.
The first step is to identify what you want to achieve. We focus on that, and the solution, rather than the causes. It's all about the present and the future, and not the past.
Research shows that the SF model can help people make significant and positive changes relatively quickly.
Hypnosis, and the state of trance, is a very safe procedure, which can help you reduce stress and anxiety. This is done very simply through relaxation techniques, which allow you to focus on the positive aspects of your life. This helps to encourage the shift in your perspective which is central to the process.
Do you suffer from depression or low mood?
Together, we can get you back on track, and thinking positively again.
Do you have panic attacks, or a general anxiety about life that you can't get under control?
I can help you to use the tools that you already have, to get your balance back.
Do you want to stop smoking?
Of course you do. We can achieve that in one session.
Are you concerned about your weight?
Would you like help in managing it? Help is at hand, with no pills or fad diets.
Do you have a condition which causes you physical pain?
Hypnotherapy can help you to manage that pain, drug-free.
Are you scared of spiders, or heights, or something else that is preventing you from going about your daily life?
Together, we can rid you of it. Let's talk about how we do that.
Are you good (or maybe not so good) at what you do in the gym, the pool, on the track, the court or the road? Do you want to do better?
We can do that, together.
Do you want to be able to deal with the stresses of everyday life, and to switch off at the end of the day?
Let's talk about how we can achieve that.

Our first consultation is free.
Subsequent consultations, on the basis of sessions of 50-55 minutes, cost £60. We would expect to see positive results within a few weeks; a typical course of treatment, on issues such as depression and anxiety, normally lasts 8-12 weeks.
Treatment on phobias normally lasts 4 weeks.
Smoking cessation work, which is based on a double-session, costs £150.
Hypnotherapy can also help with the good things in your life. If you want to improve or enhance your own particular skills, SFH can help. Those things that you're already good at, but which you want to do better - like sports performance, business capabilities, general life skills - these can all be improved through appropriate SFH techniques.
I'm happy to talk over your issues and suggest a course of action.
I am flexible, and will try my best to fit in with your schedule. I am willing to see you at my premises, or yours, whichever is more appropriate and comfortable.
