Broken sleep can have a major impact on our daily lives: a frustrating repeating pattern that leaves us drained, fuzzy headed and unable to function properly. It is a condition that some people live with for years. Clinical Hypnotherapy can be an effective way of getting your sleeping habits back on track and bring back the many benefits that come with a good night’s sleep.
Fears and Phobias
Does fear set your boundaries and affect your ability to realise your full potential? We can feel hijacked by fears leading us to adopt strategies and responses to avoid that fear at all costs. It might mean taking long diversions to avoid motorway driving, not travelling abroad for fear of spiders or living with toothache rather than face the dentist. Clinical Hypnotherapy can help you to change your perspective, help you edit your fears, converting them into non-threatening memories. It can be a very effective and liberating experience.
Why are bad habits so difficult to break? Habits persist because they are triggered subconsciously leaving us barely aware of them having started until it’s too late. It might not be a matter of willpower but instead of making our unconscious actions conscious again, and so bringing them back within our control. Clinical Hypnotherapy can help you achieve this.
Hypnotherapy can help with pain control and reduction.We feel pain for a reason: it is our body’s way of telling us when we are injured and it informs our healing process. Sometimes though, pain goes on longer than it should. At our Initial Consultation I’ll explain the pain response, how the brain makes sense of pain and what can be done to help alleviate your symptoms and get you back on track.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
IBS can be debilitating, painful and end up dominating your life. Sufferers can be left isolated with symptoms that are unpredictable and embarrassing. Hypnotherapy can help! The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends hypnotherapy as a treatment that can help manage persistent IBS symptoms for those people for whom medication has not been effective.
Struggling with the negative and heavy feelings that come with low mood and depression: feelings that leave you numb and unable to find the energy to find meaning or motivation? I’ll explain how solution-focused techniques can help you manage your feelings and rediscover your old get-up-and go: progressing from where you are now towards the future you want.
Anxiety and Stress
Anxiety, a natural human response to danger that has evolved over thousands of years, allows us to react quickly to protect ourselves from harm. But for some of us the feeling of high alert won’t turn off. Being anxious and stressed can become a way of dealing with life: we might worry about specific things - public speaking, exam nerves, social events or similar, or be in a state of constant generalised fearfulness, that might include obsessive thoughts, repetitive behaviour and panic attacks. Stressful reactions can leave us feeling tense and uncomfortable and stress is commonly cited as a contributory long-term factor to poor health. Clinical Hypnotherapy can be very effective at helping you to reduce the symptoms and impact of chronic anxiety, leaving you happier and feeling more in control.
