Hypnotherapy – What I can help you with:
Most people know something about hypnotherapy but often they have ideas about hypnosis based on stage hypnosis and people clucking like chickens. (Nothing to do with hypnotherapy, for the record!) Or perhaps, they only associate hypnotherapy with things like quitting smoking or overcoming a phobia.
You might be surprised to hear that hypnotherapy and especially an integrated approach which incorporates many different technique can help with a huge list of emotional, psychological and physical issues. By working with the unconscious mind, you can reprogramme unconscious beliefs and negative behavioural patterns, resolve past issues and start to build confidence for a new ways of being in the future.
This process of change can also be quicker than you think because our aim is not to spend loads of time analysing why you have an issue but rather discover what you really want to achieve and how to get you there.
Most clients notice a difference after the first couple of sessions. I generally see people between 3 to 9 sessions but sometimes we might only need one or two sessions to resolve a fear or remove a mind block. It’s amazing what is possible when you are ready, willing to focus and open to change.
Here is a list of some of the most common issues I helped many people overcome. Please note that I only work with adults over 18s at the moment.

Hypnotherapy for young children or Asperger’s Syndrome
As I only work with children from the age of 18 years and upwards, if you are looking for help with younger children, I recommend contacting Paul Hughes who’s based in Reading, Watlington and Thame
Paul also specialises in helping people on the autistic spectrum. You can find his site here: http://www.resolvedhypnotherapy.co.uk/
Help for alcohol or drug addiction
I cannot help with alcoholism or drug addiction as I believe it’s very specialist and needs specific help. I do help people change their lifestyle to healthier habits so as part of this it might be focused on reducing alcohol. However this is very different to working with alcoholism or drug issues so please see below for an option which might be useful to you or please contact me if you want a referral to a local hypnotherapist who works in this area.
