Manisha Odedra DFSH HPD MNCH (Reg.)
In Mind UK
First Floor, 939 Lincoln Road
I am a hypnotherapist who works with people who have been suffering from stress and anxiety and who feel they have lost their way in life. Often a fear, phobia or addiction may be holding them back and stopping them from moving forwards. My clients often say to me that they don't know how they got to this place in their life. They know they aren't happy there but they don't know what to do to make things better.
I help my clients to get back control of their lives, help them to regain their confidence and realise that the future holds so much more for them.
What sets me apart is that I use a solution focused approach. I only focus on the future and how we can achieve positive outcomes rather than dwelling on the past. I use a simple 5 step process which can turn people's lives round in as little as 6 weeks. I help them to understand why they are suffering the way they are, help them to set positive goals for the future, identify and undo any negative behaviour patterns that may be holding them back, create positive new behaviour patterns and habits and then lock those in for permanent change.
If you would like to find out how you can get your life back on track call or text me now on 07815 460 457 and book your free initial consultation.

Testimonials from my clients:
I was a chronic asthmatic and I wanted to try and control my anxiety and feel more comfortable to go out and be happy with my own company. I also wanted to get back into exercise and be able to do things again that made me happy. The sessions with Manisha were just wonderful. I really enjoyed unloading my troubles and working out how to deal with them. I also found it great how Manisha would help me work it out without really helping and it was me that worked it out without realising. I was so relaxed at the end of each visit and I always went in to a trance.I am very well in my health now. I haven't be anxious since I have finished my sessions. I am happy every day and even if I am having a bad day I know the tools to use to help me deal with things. I have lost 2 stone in weight and I am running 4 times a week and getting married next year. My life has totally changed as a result of Manisha!!!! If you’re thinking of trying hypnotherapy I would say “do it”, go in with an open mind and just go with it, it will change your life. I would also say you must see Manisha.
I felt stressed, angry, disillusioned, like every day was a challenge just to feel happy. I didn't know how to fix this, I just thought that this was just the way I was made. At one time or another, throughout my life, I'd tried everything to numb myself of being me. A lot of the time, I just didn't want to be who I was, but didn't know how to change. Having someone that took the time to unravel my head was pretty amazing to be honest. I'd never let anyone do this before or even thought it was actually possible to do so working with Manisha was cool. As time went on I started noticing that I was feeling better; more able to rationalise things. My thinking was taking a different shape. At times I was lost for words, at other times I was laughing about how much sense stuff made. Hypnotherapy itself was brilliant - a fantastic way to develop focus, reflect, and work out a new way forwards. The first benefit I noticed was clarity - from a tangled mess of emotional experiences I couldn't rationalise, to understanding. This was a hugely significant thing for me. I think anyone that can recite the quantity of information that I put in front of them in the first place should have a medal, but to be able to untangle it all is amazing. Add this to the tailored solution worked on as part of the treatment offered and you soon realise that hypnotherapy is going to be hugely beneficial and all that comes from the person providing the treatment. Forget what you may have heard about hypnotherapy - beyond any doubt, it works. If you're prepared to give it a serious go then you will change your life for the better, it's as simple as that.
Before seeing Manisha I felt very much out of control with a few aspects in my life, especially my weight - I couldn't get my head around dieting. During my visits with Manisha I felt very relaxed and comfortable. Hypnotherapy made me feel very much more relaxed and in control of my feelings and much more able to take back the control in my life that I was lacking in. I would definitely recommend any of my friends or family to try hypnotherapy. I think it's always good to open your mind to things you haven't tried before and give them a chance to improve your life.
It was by chance that I came across the idea of hypnotherapy. I was a smoker and in the words of Noel Coward 'giving up smoking was easy, I'd done it loads of times!' I was unmotivated, stressed and I wasn't positive about the prospect of hypnotherapy working! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working with Manisha. She was professional and effective!!! You will notice that I now refer to myself as a non smoker!! Having had 1 session I left the building not wanting a cigarette! What's remains a revelation to me was the lack of physical withdrawal I experienced. I also continued to lose weight! I had a particularly stressful time at work so felt in need of another session and left feeling in control and looking forward to returning to work! If you’re thinking of using hypnotherapy I’d say “Try it!!!” You may be surprised!
