What do I do?
I am a solution-focused hypnotherapist. What does that mean? Well it describes the type of approach I use, which concentrates on your desired future, rather than analysing past or painful memories.
What would you like to change?
All change comes about as a result of us changing either what we’re thinking about, or the way we think about it. Do you suffer from anxiety, severe stress or maybe even panic attacks. Do you want to have more confidence when doing presentations at work, or speaking before an audience? Perhaps you have a big event coming up, a driving test, wedding speech, or job interview? Or would you like to lose weight but are fed up with yo-yo dieting?
Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss
If you’re fed up with traditional methods of dieting why not try something else? The Virtual Gastric Band method uses hypnosis to help you lose weight, and keep it off. Successful long-term weight loss is not about more or different diets, it’s about changing your eating habits, approach to food and life-style.
How does it work?
By working with your unconscious mind, where your emotions, eating habits and attitudes to food are stored. The body has an inbuilt mechanism that tells us when we’ve had enough to eat, but often this signal has been suppressed or ignored for so long we no longer pay attention to it. With the VGB approach there is no dieting as such, you eat when you’re hungry, stopping when you feel full, and creating new, healthier eating habits that are designed to stay with you after your programme is finished.
I offer 4 sessions in the programme, which includes the gastric band ‘surgery’ session, and subsequent sessions designed to support you over the following weeks or months.
To find out more about this, and how it might help you lose that excess weight, please get in touch for a free 30 minute consultation.
What's the difference between hypnosis and Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy can help when those changes seem difficult, or out of reach. People often ask about the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Some think that hypnosis is all about laying on a couch and staring at a fob-watch being dangled in front of their eyes, while falling under the control of the hypnotist. Nothing could be further from the truth. While hypnosis has been around for thousands of years, it is simply the process of going into what we call 'an altered state of consciousness' or 'trance'. A bit like when you're driving home and when you get there find you can't remember driving the last 5 miles. Whereas Hypnotherapy is a Therapy, which uses hypnosis as a powerful tool to facilitate change, by communicating with the unconscious part of the mind which is responsible for so many of the things we do and the habits we have learned. By using the power of positive suggestions, while in an altered state, it can help bring about changes to your thought and behaviour patterns, as it by-passes the conscious (or thinking) part of the mind. This has the effect of retraining the brain at a subconscious level. And most importantly of all, you are in control at all times.
