Elaine Collins Dip Hyp CS, MHS, CHBP
Hello. My name is Elaine Collins and I am a professionally qualified hypnotherapist based in west Wales. I have personally experienced the benefits of hypnotherapy and I am genuinely interested in working with you to make the positive changes you want to make in your life.
At times our lives can be extremely stressful and we're not always aware of the unwanted effect that stress is having on us. Perhaps you have feelings of low mood or anxiety, or need help to overcome a fear or boost your confidence? Maybe you are struggling with your weight, want to get a good night's sleep or are finding it difficult to deal with pain or illness?
The good news is that hypnotherapy can help with these and many other conditions. It can help you to make those positive changes in your life that can improve both your physical and mental well-being:
Anxiety: Hypnotherapy can help your unconscious mind to calm down and find new ways of coping with situations that cause you anxiety and panic.
Stress: Session are deeply calming as your body becomes physically relaxed and your mind takes a break from worry. Learn how to identify new ways of responding to the stress in your life and build relaxation into your day.
Weight-loss: By changing your thoughts and behaviour around eating you can adopt a healthy lifestyle - one that keeps you slimmer and fitter long term. The Hypno-Band system could help you if you have a lot of weight to lose.
Fertility: Hypnotherapy is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress which can aid natural conception and support you through fertility treatment. It can also help to restore confidence in yourself and your body.
Childbirth: Learn how to use self-hypnosis, relaxation, visualisation and breathing methods so that you enter labour feeling calm, confident and in control.
Early Parenthood: I can support you while you adjust to your new lives as mum and dad.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or you'd like a chat about how I can help you.
I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to make the positive changes you want in your life.

Post Natal support
Helping you to adjust to your new lives as mum or dad. Hypnotherapy can help you to become ‘good enough’ parents, rather than striving for perfection. I can assist you to resist the temptation to criticise what you do and what what don’t do, to relax into your new role as a parent, whilst also keeping the juggling balls in the air of your individual needs, your needs as a couple as well as the needs of your new baby.

Initial Consultation: £20
Hypnotherapy Session: £40
Discounts are available for sessions paid for in advance. I can take payment by cash or cheque.
The first step is an initial consultation where we can talk in confidence about how I can help you. It's also chance for you to ask any questions you may have. This session also includes a relaxation recording to take away.
All sessions are tailored to meet your individual needs and last approximately 50 minutes. The number of hypnotherapy sessions needed varies from person to person depending on your needs and the goal you'd like to achieve.
Sessions take place in a private, comfortable environment in my own home where you can feel relaxed and confident, either in my home practice or Carmarthen's Nurture Centre.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or you'd like a chat about how I can help. I'm really looking forward to working with you.

"Elaine addressed my deep-seated reasons for emotional eating. Hypnosis has changed my relationship with food so I feel positive and in control. The weight has come off slowly but surely, and so far I've lost two stones. This has been totally life-changing for me". H.D
