You must be completely committed, absolutely 100% committed to want to make that change, lose weight, stop smoking, overcome fear etc for Clinical Hypnotherapy to help you and be successful. There is no such thing as a “magic wand’ in Clinical Hypnotherapy . Comedy stage hypnosis has very little to do with clinical Clinical Hypnotherapy and has been shown to foster misconceptions which can prevent people from benefitting from treatment. Please take what you see on television with a generous pinch of salt. Clinical Hypnotherapy does not deliver immediate / instant solutions but with the right positive attitude, commitment and expectancy towards Clinical Hypnotherapy it can bring amazing results regardless of the change you are looking for.

"By using the deep relaxation techniques that I provide as a clinical hypnotherapist, I can help change negative thought patterns and learned behaviours. This in turn will improve quality of life and help to overcome both emotional and physical issues."

These suggestions help people make positive changes within themselves. In a Clinical Hypnotherapy session, you are always in control and are not made to do anything. All Hypnosis is Self-Hypnosis and as a Hypnotherapist I simply facilitate my client’s experience.

Hypnosis Facts:

  • Hypnosis was accepted by the American Medical Association is 1958
  • Hypnosis is a very natural state of mind and is safe
  • No-one has ever been hurt by Hypnosis
  • Hypnosis is not mind control
  • You cannot get stuck in Hypnosis – this has never happened to anyone
  • The worst-case scenario is that you fall asleep
  • Hypnosis is focused consciousness
  • Sleep is a state of unconsciousness
  • The wording of “Sleep” in Hypnosis means close your eyes and go deeply relaxed as if you are asleep. Hypnosis is simply a series of instructions and suggestions. All you have to do is focus on what the hypnotherapist is saying and follow his or her guidance and instructions with 100% commitment and focus.

What is Clinical Hypnotherapy ?

Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is not a state of deep sleep. It does involve the induction of a relaxed but highly focused state, therefore, when in it, the client is actually in an enhanced state of awareness, concentrating entirely on my voice. As the therapist, I am able to suggest ideas, concepts and lifestyle adaptations to my clients, the seeds of which become firmly planted.

The practice of promoting healing or positive development in any way is known as Clinical Hypnotherapy . As such, Clinical Hypnotherapy is a kind of psychotherapy. Clinical Hypnotherapy aims to re-programme patterns of behaviour within the mind, enabling irrational fears, phobias, negative thoughts and suppressed emotions to be overcome.

Our ability to rationalise our actions is what keeps us sane. For example, a smoker will rationalise his or her actions by saying “smoking helps me relax and focus.” The truth is that cigarettes raise heart rate and hand tremors by a large percent. So much for relaxing!! So, our rational mind is not always correct, but, as long as our rational mind can come up with some reasoning for our actions, we will be at peace. Our analytical mind recognises problems, such as a flat tyre, and it figures out how to fix it.

Also, Will Power. How many times have you tried changing an old habit by using will power? Will power is only temporary. It gives us short bursts of energy to help us get through a mental situation, but then it fades away. Will power cannot affect internal change.

What if I can’t be hypnotised?

What, you mean, “What if I am the only person in the entire world that can’t be hypnotised?”

Lots of people think that. Lots of people that come for some hypnosis and leave feeling relieved and elated at how they ever thought that in the first place. The only people who can’t be hypnotised are those who don’t want to be hypnotised. Everyone else can be hypnotised, but the depths and response levels do differ from person to person. However, evidence shows that you can advance your responsiveness with the practice of certain hypnotic skills training you’ll receive from me within our sessions. This ensures that you are making changes at a deep behavioural level and those changes are embedded in your neurology. You want long-lasting, progressive change, don’t you? Not just a flash in the pan.

  • Hypnotic suggestion is a means of experiencing certain helpful ideas at a level profound enough to directly influence our emotions and behaviour.
  • Psychological and emotional problems can be seen as the result of negative thinking, whereas Clinical Hypnotherapy aims to encourage ("suggest") positive ideas which lead to improvement.
  • Hypnosis is essentially a simple, down-to-earth, and common sense therapy. For example, by relaxing, thinking positively, and picturing your goals, hypnosis can help you to progressively improve your habitual feelings and behaviour.

I am trained and qualified in Clinical Hypnotherapy using the most evidence-based, Cognitive Behavioural Clinical Hypnotherapy , Clinical Hypnosis and Problem Solving Therapy approaches.


Hypnosis is not only a tool to make wonderful changes in your life. It's a way to de-stress. Your pulse slows. Your blood pressure comes down.
When that happens, you see things more clearly.
You're primed for making changes.
