Hypnosis is a deeply relaxed state of mind, in which your attention and receptiveness to suggestions or ideas is heightened, allowing the Hypnotherapist to make positive changes. It has been approved for use by the British Medical Association for over 50 years. Many people have preconceived notions about Hypnotherapy, mostly as the result of recent trends in watching stage hypnotists using their skills for entertainment value. In reality, the stage hypnotist will usually select compliant, extrovert types who are willing to do silly things suggested to them anyway! Whoever you are, when you are in hypnosis you will never do or say anything you do not want to. The therapist has no control over the client, they simply facilitate requirements for change to help achieve success.

Hypnotherapy takes place by sitting in a relaxing chair with your eyes closed. The therapist will then talk to you calmly, often using guided imagery, so that your conscious mind switches off – much like the feeling of daydreaming. This then allows the therapist access to your subconscious mind, offering suggestions for change to a certain behaviour, stress or addiction and so on. The client will be aware of everything that is happening and hear everything being said. It is a perfectly natural state of deep relaxation.

The Hypno-Band is the World Leader in Gastric band Hypnotherapy and is the original Virtual Gastric Band method in UK, USA, Australia and many more countries. Using a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnotherapy our practitioners will help your change your eating habits forever! If you are really committed to losing weight then the Hypno-Band will help you to achieve your goals. Designed for those with a BMI over 25 the Hypno-Band is a safe, risk free and cheap alternative to Gastric Band Surgery. With over 1500 Licensed Practitioners in 44 countries the Hypno-Band is the World’s No.1 gastric band hypnotherapy system.

The Hypno-Band was created and developed by John Maclean of Newwave Hypnotherapy which is based in Mallorca, Spain and Exeter, United Kingdom. While seeing many clients for weight loss therapy John realised that for those clients who had a high Body Mass Index (BMI) regular weight loss hypnotherapy was not enough. The concept of Gastric band Hypnotherapy had been around for some time but John felt that what was needed was an integrated system that analysed and dealt with the client’s emotional and psychological reasons for over-eating. After many months of research and development the Hypno-Band was born and today it has become the world’s most used Gastric band Hypnotherapy system available through our network of Licensed Practitioners (over 800) in 39 countries.

The Hypno-Band could change your life for- ever. Imagine having the results usually achieved by having a surgical Gastric Band fitted but not having to go through surgery, and spending thousands of pounds! Gastric Band surgery is not for everyone. Usually the surgery is only carried out on people classified as “clinically obese” and with a high Body Mass Index (BMI)

A surgical Gastric Band works by reducing the size of the stomach and therefore you eat smaller portions and feel full. Through this method it is possible to lose weight easily. The surgical method does have drawbacks however. It is very costly, typically costing £4000 to £6000 and of course you will need to go through a surgical procedure.What if you could have all the benefits of a surgical Gastric Band, without the surgery and the cost? Well now you can!

By using the Hypno-Band hypnotherapy system we create a state of mind where you will believe you actually have a Gastric Band fitted! You will eat smaller portions and feel full. The Hypno-Band system is a long term solution to your weight problems.

How does it work?

Over four sessions we take you through the process of having a gastric band fitted, only in your mind. By using suggestion and visualisation your mind will be convinced that your stomach has become smaller and that you need less food. By eating less and less often you will begin to lose weight. The process uses hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural techniques to help you achieve your ideal weight – and stay there!

Each session in the Hypno-Band system lasts for one hour and before beginning the process a full assessment will be carried out.

Does it involve surgery? No! the HYPNO-BAND system is a non-invasive behaviour changing method using the techniques of hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy.

Does it hurt? On the contrary. The HYPNO-BAND procedure is extremely relaxing and pleasurable.

Are there side effects? No.  There are no side effects associated with undergoing this procedure

So it’s safe?  Yes! the HYPNO-BAND system is perfectly safe.

Will I be under the hypnotherapists control? Never. No hypnotherapist can make you do anything you do not want to do nor make you behave in a way you would not normally behave.

Am I suitable for the HYPNO-BAND weight loss system? If you are overweight and really want and are committed to losing weight then you should be suitable. The only exception would be if there is a physiological reason for your weight problems or if you are taking certain medications.

Will it work for me? The key to success is YOU! No weight loss system will work unless you are comitted to losing weight. You must be prepared to change your eating habits and lifestyle. If you are totally serious about losing weight then it will certainly work for you. The HYPNO-BAND system provides you with the tools and ability to lose weight and maintain a healthier body.

How long does it take? The whole process takes four one hour sessions. Usually a week apart but that can be adapted for your convenience.

 Smoking Cessation

th (1)

If you have the desire to quit smoking, hypnotherapy can transform you into a non-smoker. You do not need to suffer withdrawal symptoms, cravings and perhaps most importantly, you will not need to use willpower.

If you are a smoker, you know the health risks and the benefits of quitting. I
am not going to bombard you with facts and figures. .

Hypnotherapy removes the craving in the mind helping you to stop smoking. By accessing your self conscious through Hypnosis, suggestions can be made to alter your feelings towards cigarettes.You will never need to think ‘I really want a cigarette but
know I shouldn’t have one’. You will have greater self-awareness along with a
healthier self-image, not to mention a terrific sense of personal achievement
and gain.

Normal methods require you to gradually reduce your intake, to stick patches on your
arm each morning or even worse, take unnecessary prescribed drugs. On top of
all that, you also need to have bucket loads of willpower because none of these
approaches address your emotional cravings and habits. They simply attempt to
remove the physical craving. The desire to smoke will not be removed from your
mind. Who wants to spend their lives trying to NOT have something they want?

Through Hypnosis you will enjoy being a confident non-smoker. Smoking will
become a thing of the past as you forget all about it.

 

Hypno-Birthing ”"

Would you like a calm and relaxed labour and birth?

 

Would you like to feel in control of your Birthing experience?

Would you like natural pain relief?

Then Hypnobirthing is for you!

You have probably heard many horror stories from friends or family about painful or traumatic births. You may even have experienced a traumatic birth yourself. However this doesn’t have to be the case.

The Hypnobirthing programme starts by helping you to release your fears of Childbirth and release any negative emotions associated with giving birth.

You then go on to learn different techniques to help you take control of your birth in a calm and relaxed way. This includes techniques for self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques.

The Hypnobirthing programme consists of 6 weekly one to one sessions. Your birthing partner is invited to come to one of these sessions to learn how they can help and support you during the birth.

Advantages of Hypnobirthing:

  • Less discomfort during labour, less fear and tension
  • Shorter labour (up to half the time)
  • Baby more alert when born – Apgar score is higher (Any drugs have side affects for the baby)
  • Feel in control of YOUR birthing experience
  • Less chance of intervention (Forceps etc)
  • These skills can be used for subsequent births ….these skills are for life!!

For a free consultation please contact me on 07739364821

It is best to book onto the programme 8 weeks before your due date.

There has been a lot of research into Hypnobirthing. Here are just a few examples…..

”Hypnosis, practical applications and theoretical considerations in normal labour” Dr. Mary Jenkins and Dr. M H Pritchard

Welsh maternity unit – study over 5 yrs, primagravidas and secondary para gravidas given 6 sessions of hypnotherapy (half hour each), midwives were unaware of this, in all cases analgesic requirements were lower aongst those who had hypnotherapy, and the duration of labour was shorter. 90% of the control group needed anesthetic help, 52% of the hypnotised group needed something.

Shawn Gallagher, Retrospective survey, Toronto, Canada

Pre-natal hypnotherapy classes 18% had epidurals and 6.7% had C sections. Those who had no hypnotherapy more than 40% had epidurals and 20% had C sections

The Effects of Hypnosis on the process of labour & Birth Outcomes of Pregnant adolescents, Alice Martin, Paul Schauble The Journal of Family Practice Vol 50 no 5

None of those 22 who were hypnotised needed surgical intervention, 12 of the 20 who were not hypnotised did.

 

Fears, Phobias, Habits

A phobia is an irrational fear of either a place, situation or object that in reality causes little or no real danger.

Specific or direct phobias are fears of things such as spiders, flying,
infections, snakes, heights, needles – the list goes on. These most common
phobias can be easily cured by hypnotherapy, which teaches a new behaviour
pattern in response to the phobia. So rather than feeling panicked when
boarding a plane, you would feel calm and in control.

A social phobia revolves around a fear of how others might see you, what they
think of you, and a feeling that whatever you’re doing is being noticed. Social
phobias can be treated using a variety of techniques. Visualization could allow
the client to ‘practice’ new behaviours while under hypnosis. Suggestions can
help raise the client’s self image and esteem so they start to see that they
are worthy and equal to anybody else.

I also treat:

  • Stress/Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Blushing
  • Exam Nerves
  • Confidence
  • OCD
  • Sports Success
  • Insomnia
