Linda Bromage (BSc Hons Hypnosis) Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist
I am an award winning Advanced Consultant Clinical Hypnotherapist. I have a first class (hons) degree in clinical Hypnotherapy and am PhD candidate in hypnosis. I am also a fully qualified cognitive behavioural hypnotherapist and have presented at the International Hypnosis Convention in London in November 2019.
My understanding of hypnosis and therapy is evidence based, meaning I look for the scientific evidence behind all that is written and taught with regards to hypnosis. To this end- I do not offer past life regression therapy- as there is no evidence to support its claims.Hypnosis is a very effective way for you to make the changes that you want to make in your life. It works by you learning and believing self hypnosis and challenging your negative self belief. I will guide you on your experience to enable you to continue to practice for effectiveness. It is not the 'trance' that many hypnotherapists talk about, it's what you learn to do for yourself by retraining your beliefs and behaviours. The more you want to experience the phenomena of hypnotherapy, the more effective it becomes. When you close your eyes and focus, something extraordinary happens to both the brain and the mind. The rigid boundaries of perception that have held you in place begin to soften, reality therefore becoming less real and more negotiable. You will be able to discover that you are capable of much more than you realise. The purpose of hypnosis is to create and enable the exploration of new awareness's and new possibilities, and to make the changes that you want.
I understand that our modern lives are stressful, and continual stress affects the immune system through emotional and/or behavioural manifestations such as fear, anxiety, tension, sadness, anger. Or maybe there are areas in your life that you feel are out of control, that cause you anxiety, or maybe there is stress in your relationships or confidence issues in your career.
You can change or stop lifelong habits NOW.
Life doesn’t have to be a struggle. A lot of people think that they have to fight or struggle to succeed, but in reality you have to change your mind to change your life. You have to free yourself from limiting beliefs. If your life is affected by any of the following issues, then hypnosis can help you to choose to quit smoking, relieve stress, manage anxiety and panic attacks, lose weight, deal with traumas and phobias, and build self -confidence. To motivate yourself to achieve a personal goal, whether it is running a marathon, changing eating habits for a healthier life, manage public speaking with confidence or pain management for child -birth - hypnotherapy can help you realise those goals.
I have a lot experience helping young people overcome anxiety, low self esteem and self harming.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is a powerful therapeutic practice which allows you to access a focused state of concentration, which assists you to make the behavioural changes you want, resulting in increased feelings of profound calmness , confidence and positive attitude to achieve success, during and after the sessions.
Hypnotherapy is an investment in your potential – the life improvements, personal growth and success that you will be able to achieve will exponentially outweigh your initial outlay of time and money.
Through hypnosis, I can offer you the best therapeutic tools to achieve improved health and well-being. I am a consultant cognitive behavioural clinical hypnotherapist and well qualified in this area of extremely effective therapy. There is a great deal of very good robust scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of hypnosis particularly when it is used with CBT, in the treatment of anxiety fears and phobias, pain relief and IBS.

Hypnotherapy integrates biology and psychology to restore the mind/body balance by accessing the client's own inner resources for healing and change. CBT Hypnotherapy utilises the essence of CBT and enhances the behavioural change with hypnosis and self- hypnosis.
