Lynne Chiswick MSc, BSc, PGCE, D.Hyp, BSCH (Assoc)
Hello, my name is Lynne, I am an experienced and professionally qualified clinical hypnotherapist based in Eastbourne.
I offer a highly personalised, confidential service to help you overcome a range of problems that may be causing you difficulty, inconvenience, anxiety or stopping you from doing something you want or need to do. I would be delighted to help you with any of these issues using clinical hypnotherapy.
I am particularly interested in weight loss and helping people to stop smoking as well as helping people overcome fears and phobias, anxieties and breaking habits.
I believe strongly in the power and effectiveness of clinical hypnotherapy in helping people overcome problems, think more positively and make the most of their abilities. I use a combination of behavioural and cognitive approaches to help treat a variety of conditions. I can teach you deep relaxation techniques and self-hypnosis to provide you with invaluable lifelong tools to help you cope with future challenges.
Hypnotherapy is one of the oldest, most natural and safest of the complementary therapies, and can help you change the way you think and feel about things that may be causing you problems. Hypnotherapy can help you become so deeply relaxed that your mind is much more receptive to positive suggestions to allow you to change something that is affecting your life. .
My practice is based in Eastbourne in Sovereign Harbour North and within easy reach of many places in East Sussex. I offer hypnotherapy to people living in Hastings, St Leonards, Lewes, Seaford, Newhaven, Hailsham, Bexhill and Brighton in West Sussex.
If you are looking for an experienced hypnotherapist, please get in touch.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What happens during a hypnotherapy session? We will start by discussing the problem you are experiencing. I will then suggest the kind of treatment I would recommend. Depending on the problem, you may need just one session or several. Many conditions can be treated in just one or two sessions. I will also explain how hypnotherapy works and answer any questions that you may wish to ask about the treatment.
How does hypnotherapy work? We may not realise it but we all experience hypnosis regularly and naturally. For example, just before you fall asleep at night or as you awaken the following morning, you may feel drowsy and relaxed. You may also spend some time each day drifting off into a daydream. Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation and altered awareness.
During your treatment, you will feel very relaxed, both physically and mentally, and this makes your subconscious mind open to positive suggestions to help you to take back control and make changes to overcome problems that are affecting your life. A session of hypnotherapy should leave you feeling calm, with a sense of well being and the ability to meet the challenges of daily life with confidence and inner strength. In hypnosis, it is possible to consider new perspectives and discover inner strengths to help achieve your goals, overcome fears and make positive changes in your habits or patterns of thought.
Will I go to sleep or lose control? Hypnosis is not sleep. It does not involve losing consciousness. You are in control and aware of what is going on. Hypnotherapy cannot make you do anything against your will.
