Weight loss support
Many people who are overweight yo yo diet. They may make a supreme effort and lose pounds or stones and then put it all back on again. This is because the subconscious mind goes into panic- 'we are in a famine, I must lay down the fat! As soon as food is available I must eat to survive!'
Food has never been so readily available and so convenient. It is very tempting to eat more than we need and more and more people are becoming obese.
Comfort eating is also common. Even if you know that chocolate, crisps, cakes, biscuits and other fattening foods are not good for you, it's difficult to resist when you are feeling low and in need of some comfort.
In our weight loss programme, we start by discussing your current food choices and eating habits.
Together we decide on your best options, food to buy, to prepare, when to eat etc and preferred exercise and build this into our hypnotherapy session.
Any foods that are addictive, we can use techniques to reduce their appeal. To avoid the subconscious diet scare, in hypnosis we emphasise healthy eating and good eating habits. We encourage you to value and take good care of your body, your temple.
More serious eating disorders have many underlying issues to resolve and we need to look at how you were treated as a child to understand them.
Stress Reduction and Management
Stress is acknowledged as one of the greatest causes of illness so it needs to be kept under control.
Stress may be something that happens when you struggle to cope with a demanding job, bereavement, change of job, house or other life challenges. It may also be internal, for example, demands that you put upon yourself to be perfect, to be the best or to cope in a situation that you think you should endure.
Stress can be relieved by understanding the causes and how the flight and flight reflex is triggered by the autonomous nervous system, whenever the subconscious body mind perceives itself to be in danger. Hypnotherapy and positive suggestions combined with NLP give a boost to confidence levels and feelings of wellbeing, reducing the stress and anxiety.
Pain is a message from the body that something is wrong and needs attention. It is also a warning not to injure the body any further.
It is important to listen to this message and rest when the pain is recent injury or due to a known cause. Hopefully the pain will cease as the body repairs itself. Medication, therapy or arnica balm may help.
However, chronic or long term pain may be due to on-going physical trauma, illness or disease or a dysfunctional pain system. Instead of the expectation of relief, there is the expectation of continuing pain and discomfort. This in itself causes more distress and pain may become a disease entity in its own right, when you focus on the pain to the detriment of the rest of your life.
As you fear the pain, you may fear to do anything and lose all quality of life. This of course impacts upon mental health and you may suffer from depression. Research suggests that people with pain benefit from exercise, manual therapies, electrophysical agents like TENS, ultrasound and acupuncture and psychological treatments like ours. Massage may help musculoskeletal pain. Painless Spinal Touch will correct posture and undue stress on the spine and muscles. Hypnotherapy will relax the body and teach pain killing techniques.

It is common for clients come to us because they are distressed over their relationship with a relative or love one. It may be a bereavement or the ending of a relationship that they struggle to accept.
It may be that they feel uncomfortable, bullied, denigrated or betrayed. Obviously we cannot 'fix' the relationship and make it everything the client would like it to be. What we can do, however, is help the client to see how they are contributing to the problem and why. When we have this new perception we can use hypnotherapy to make the client stronger with more self esteem and more self confidence to do whatever they need to do to make things better. This may mean finishing a relationship or putting it on a different footing. Only the client decides as they understand the situation more clearly and become more empowered.
Excessively jealous men often have an issue of abandonment in their past and so they are subconsciously afraid of losing their wife or girlfriend. An emotional issue can often be traced back to a past event or trauma.
Sometimes the treatments we do, have a knock on effect on relationships for example, a lady who came for past life therapy uncovered a past life where she was raped and consequently distrusted all men. When she realised that she still had these feelings, it saved the marriage she was thinking of finishing. Another lady, who came for help with a lack of confidence in driving, subsequently left her bullying husband.

Support during major life changes
When your life goes through major changes we offer support and healing to smoothen the transition and provide you with new ways to cope and deal with everything thats going on.
Past life regression
In Past Life Regression you are taken into a past life by deep relaxation or hypnosis to experience it for yourself. We explain the possibilities that might be found in this session and ensure that all safeguards are in place before you go into hypnosis. With the light of the information revealed in the session, we help you to understand the relevance of the past life or lives to you today. We also heal significant past life events and release any issues found like guilt, trauma and soul contracts.
Normally one or possibly two past lives are uncovered in one session. A recording is made and sent to you on CD or by email. If you are stressed or particularly nervous, it is recommended that you purchase our anxiety and stress CD, (cost £ 5) or be prepared to come for an additional session to learn to relax more deeply.
If you don't want to experience a past life for yourself, perhaps because you believe something traumatic happened, you can still learn about the past without being regressed. This involves a Past Life Reading which will reveal several past lives relevant to current life issues. After discussion, we heal the trauma and issues found. Using this therapy many more past lives can rapidly be found, verified and resolved.
