About me

Hello, I’m Chris O’Connor & I am the proud owner of the award winning Eccleston Park Hypnotherapy.

I am a vastly experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist who specialises in all areas of anxiety reduction.

Over the course of the last few years, I have won many awards and have been recognised by several independent bodies as being one of the region's leading hypnotherapists. 

My work has also been featured on Sky Sports, BBC TV, Talk Sport and in several national newspapers.

I am passionate about helping and supporting people who suffer with mental health-related conditions. Through suffering with depression myself I soon came to realise that Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a fantastic way to help people overcome brain-related issues and reach new goals in their lives.

I can help with a broad range of issues including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Sleep
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Grief
  • Specific Fears & Phobias
  • Weight Management 
  • Addiction
  • Insomnia and sleep issues
  • Elite Sports Performance 
  • Recovery for athletes
  • Dartitis
  • Mental Blocks

The issues above may be having an impact on your day-to-day life, stopping you from enjoying your family, excelling at work, studying or even just getting through the day. They can bring with them a wide range of symptoms that may be physical (aches and pains), emotional (feeling low, sad, angry) or practical (lack of motivation, low concentration).

Whatever your reason for coming to therapy you will leave feeling extremely relaxed, refreshed and ready to face the world.

In the words of a former client:

"Chris, changes chaos into calm".

I am currently an active partner of the Professional Darts Players Association and I specialise in helping clients to sleep better, reduce anxiety levels, promote wellbeing and develop elite performance levels. I also specialise in helping darts players eliminate Dartitis.

I have helped elite sportspeople like UFC star Tom Aspinall and Snooker Champion Kyren Wilson achieve World Championship titles, as well as Darts Star Stephen Bunting achieve his first major PDC Masters Title. I also helped Lioness and Manchester City player Laura Coombs earn a call-up to the recent Ladies World Cup in Australia.

I can also boast several other world champions who are my clients and who, I have and currently work with, but I am unable to divulge names due to client confidentiality.

Further information

What happens when you come to me.

The Initial consultation which may takes 50 minutes.

  • It provides you with the opportunity to explain why you are seeking help
  • It assists me to assess whether hypnotherapy can help
  • Allows a rapport between us and gives you the opportunity to decide whether you wish to work with me
  • I will carry out some basic information gathering and establish the best way to help you
  • Explain thoroughly how the brains and why you may be suffering in the way that you are
  • Explain to you how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is different in many ways from other forms of therapy and why trance is an easy thing to do
  • I will be able to provide you with a rough guide to how many sessions you will need.
  • I will give you a Relaxation Track to listen to between the sessions. This track will assist the process immensely
  • Solution Focused Hypnotherapy sessions

Your first session and all sessions following the Initial Consultation will last for approximately fifty minutes.

Upon greeting you, I will be asking you to find positive events and experiences which have happened in your life since the Initial Consultation. We will then briefly revise and go the information which was provided during the consolation about how the brain works and why you may be suffering in the way which you are.

Before trance we will focus on how to improve whichever area(s) in your life in which you would like help with. This will then be followed up with trance which is the main body of the session. You will be empowered all times to focus on the solution and never the problem.

The fantastic part about Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is that you will be empowered to find your own solutions in a manner which is catered solely for you as an individual.

Despite this you do need to be committed and open minded as to giving the treatment your best effort. Upon conclusion of the trance session most people feel extremely, relaxed and refreshed.

Specific Phobias

This takes 4 sessions including the initial consultation. This involves a relaxation session, Rewind Technique session , and concludes with the use of a well know technique named ‘Reframe’.

Smoking Cessation

Stopping Smoking is over four sessions with the initial consultation included as part of the booking. Full client commitment is essential and willpower is required.
