Paul Hancocks is a solution-focused hypnotherapist dealing with a wide range of issues ranging from phobias and anxiety to anti-smoking and other addictions.
The emphasis is on helping people resolve their problems as swiftly as practicable. That said, some issues will take longer to tackle than others.
The aim in the consulting room is to provide an upbeat atmosphere within a structured environment.
Modern techniques are used and progress is reviewed as we go along.

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
Initial consultation £20 (except for anti-smoking, which is a one-off session - see below).
Subsequent sessions are £60 (discount available for those who bring along a print-out of the front page of the website).
Anti-smoking costs £130 for the single two-hour session.
Relaxation CD or download provided for all clients.
Most evenings as well as online
There are so many ways in which solution-focused hypnotherapy can transform your life.
I have had the pleasure of helping many people over my career so far. I am looking forward to having the opportunity to assisting many more resolve their problems and realise their dreams.
