Hypnosis can help you with lots of problems, from quitting smoking and weight loss to exam nerves and anxiety. We teach you to go into a trance , where your conscious mind is day-dreaming about some pleasant scene or experience. Once you are in a trance, relaxed, with your eyes closed, we can make positive suggestions which will be accepted by your unconscious mind. We are constantly surprised when clients tell us how much difference hypnotherapy makes to their lives.
Using Hypnosis can help with problems like weight loss,quit smoking,alcohol abuse, exam nerves, anger, fear of flying, blushing, anxiety, phobias, insomnia, and other problems that cause stress.
Emotional Freedom Techniques is a tapping routine where you think about the issue you wish to address, while tapping on special points on your face and hands. EFT helps with lots of problems, and often works where nothing else will.It helps with issues like phobias and fear of flying. We teach you to use the technique at home, or at work. This enables you to cope better with panic attacks, phobias, and boosts your self-confidence.
Iridology is the art of examining the coloured part of your eye. The colour, texture, and markings of your iris can indicate a lot about your constitution. We look at your eye with a magnifying glass and light. We then make a report about what we saw and how we interpreted it. We offer advice about your lifestyle to enable you to safeguard your future health and well-being. Your diet and behaviour can affect you in many ways, and making changes can help in making you feel more confident and sleep better.
Neuro-linguistic Programming is the art and science of success. If you would like to be more effective at work, enjoy better relationships, and achieve your ambitions, then NLP Life Coaching is for you. We help you to indentify what you really want out of life, and how to get it. Your thoughts, words, behaviour and speech are all vital parts of your success, and we coach you to make changes where necessary. You can enhance your performance in sport, public speaking, exams, relationships, and generating wealth. Warning! NLP could change your life!
Acupressure is the art of easing pain and discomfort by pressing, tapping, or massaging special points on the body known as acupoints. This stimulates the flow of your body's energy and promotes self-healing. In some circumstances the flow of energy needs to be dispersed if over active. You can easily learn to help yourself and acupressure only takes a minute or so on each point. If you would like to experience acupressure for yourself, ask for a free taster session.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT) is a different form of therapy and will appeal to people who favour a practical approach to problem-solving. It has been shown to be useful in helping with anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress, eating disorders and drug misuse. The therapy varies between six and twenty-six sessions that will involve homework and practical work. Thoughts, feelings and behaviour are considered, and ways of making changes aim to remove negative patterns and improve coping skills. An assessment is given to ensure that CBT is the right form of therapy for the client.
Cancer Care Hypnosis aims to support the sufferer or the carer by complementing the medical treatment and other support. Stress is a handicap to the immune system and hypnotherapy can help to relieve stress and anxiety, helping your body to fight disease. A positive attitude to medical treatment and a healthy lifestyle is part of the therapy, and the client is encouraged to focus on a positive recovery and the enjoyment of life.
