John Parker, Hypnotherapist, Counsellor, EFT Practitioner
Hello, if you're looking for a hypnotherapist you probably have a problem or an issue that you have been unable to sort out on your own -
Many complex illnesses, physical and psychological result from or are exacerbated by long-term stress. We all know that modern complex society is extremely stressful. Some thrive in this environment, some struggle!
Yet, why struggle when a good hypnotherapist can assist you in reducing your stress levels and learning how to be more resistant to future stress. Learn to maximise your internal resources by being more mindful and developing your emotional intelligence. Why not be:
- more self-aware
- more accepting
- more focussed
- more energised
- more aware of your true needs
- more able to achieve your true needs
- more satisfied
- more joyful
- more in control of your future
HYPNOTHERAPY may assist you with any of these problems...
- Addictions - Alcohol, drugs, prescribed medications, gambling etc.
- Anxiety Issues- panic attacks, excessive worrying, feeling overwhelmed - out of control
- Stress - work, relationships, inability to relax
- Trauma - something happened to you from which you can't recover
- Grief/loss issues
...dilemmas such that you can move forward with your life.
I also do performance enhancement work - sports performance improvement/ career development/ exam work/ speech and presentation preparation/ confidence and self-esteem.
What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy combines the simple technique of hypnosis with psychotherapeutic techniques to produce a very powerful technique for problem-solving and for resolving or getting rid of persistent symptoms.
Although we seek rational solutions, the human condition is imperfect and dominated by emotion.
It is your emotions that motivate you to either success or failure, and if you have never been taught how to manage your emotions then your life may be fraught with issues that cause you (and possibly others you are involved with) much pain/discomfort/consternation.
Hypnotherapy, Counselling or EFT, may assist you in managing such dilemmas help you move away from pain, make sense of your life and take control of your life situation.
Hypnotherapy is a natural therapy solution.
