Do you need help to switch off/unwind/relax/cope with the daily stresses and strains of modern life?
My name is Lesley Farrell and I am a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and Complementary Therapist.
I work from home in a calm, restful and tranquil environment allowing you to switch off from daily life and concentrate on yourself whilst you are having your wonderfully, relaxing hypnotherapy session. My home in the Pitcorthie area of Dunfermline, is in a very quiet area and there is plenty of space to park.
How I Became a Hypnotherapist
I became interested in Hypnotherapy about five years ago as I suffered from extreme anxiety. I was looking for an alternative treatment rather than a 'medical' one so I decided to go for a hypnotherapy session. In all, I had seven sessions to sort me out, and I can honestly say that it has transformed my life as it led to me training to become a hypnotherapist.
I discovered how the past can influence our present behaviour, and how we all get into bad habits and negative ways of thinking, all caused by events earlier on in life. I discovered how hypnotherapy can help in almost all areas of life and how certain 'tools' can aid us in every day situations when we feel under pressure, anxious or nervous.
I love being a hypnotherapist, as it give me a chance to do what I do best - which is help people to help themselves solve problems or difficulties in their lives. I believe we all experience problems in life; it's how we cope with it that matters. My approach involves myself and any client working together as a team.
For my part, I give you all the tools, support, encouragement, confidence boosting and motivation that you need to conquer your current difficulties and all I ask is that clients come with an open mind and be open to change.
The most common areas that I deal with are weight issues and stopping smoking. Most people who come to see me to lose weight seem to have difficulties with certain foods such as take aways, snacking on crisps, biscuits, chocolate, fizzy juice or they have problems with binge eating. As I say to people in their session, it's about changing old, bad habits and creating new ones with some psycological tools to help with distraction, boost self esteem, confidence and motivation.
Below are more examples of areas I have had experience in :
Bed wetting/bullying/anxiety in children,
Deep seated issues from the past causing depression, anxiety, agoraphobia,
Driving test nerves,
Pregnancy & hynobirthing,
Relationship issues and many more.
If you would like a sympathetic ear and some kindness and understanding plus some practical help for your difficulties, then please give me a call on 01383 730 565 to find out more about how I can help you. I can also be contacted by email on :

Past life regression
A typical hypnotherapy session will last from between 1-2 hours and costs £80 which includes a CD for you to take away and listen to. At this current time, I am only able to accept cash or cheque as payment.
When you initially attend for hypnotherapy, in the first hour of the session, I would be asking some general questions and then more specific questions relating to your reason for coming to see me.
I would then spend the next hour doing your hypnotherapy session, whilst you relax in an extremely comfortable recliner chair.
I offer evening appointments from 7-9pm in the evening which is unusual for most hypnotherapists who do the bulk of their sessions during the day.
I am particularly interested in working with children using hypnotherapy. It can be surprisingly effective in children over the age of seven years old, and hypnotherapy works very well as children have a very active imagination which would help greatly in picturing things during a session.
Another of my favourite areas is working with ladies who have are pregnant. I like to tailor my sessions so that there is an initial session after they have found out they are pregnant which can help with nausea and feeling unwell. I would then offer another session at around 6 months which involves imagining bonding with your unborn baby in the womb and then a final session at around 8 months where I ask the client to imagination the start of labour, whilst remaining relaxed, calm and in control at all times.
I find it extremely rewarding to work with people who have experienced lots of trauma during their earlier years which has led to anxiety, depression, illness, relationship difficulties and many more signs. As I have personal experience of this, I can very much empathise with any one who is going through the same emotions and experiences which I have gone through at some time in my past.
I also offer varies types of massage as part of my services :
Oriental Facial Massage,
Thai Hand & Foot Massage,
Full Body Massage.
As well as hypnotherapy, these varies types of massage can have wonderful health benefits to us all as well as being incredibly relaxing. I also offer pampering parties with massage. Please contact me for more details.
