Conditions that hypnotherapy can help with

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help with general and more specific conditions relating to anxiety and depression. Here are some recognised conditions that Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help with. Click on a condition for more information about how hypnotherapy can help:


Hypnotherapy for anxiety

Imagine feeling peaceful, calm, confident. Being able to trust in yourself. Hypnotherapy can help the feelings of anxiety.

Anxiety is a generalised term for a wide variety of problems. It can be related to feelings of worry and fear linked to everyday events. Anticipation of disaster for example, worries about money, health, family, work or school, feeling anxious or nervous.

Treating anxiety with hypnotherapy can be highly effective, so don’t put up with it any longer. Get in touch with me today to discuss how I can help.


Hypnotherapy for bereavement

You wake looking forward to the day. Your thoughts are happy ones and you now have the confidence to enjoy the future. Hypnotherapy can help with the painful emotions surrounding bereavement.

Bereavement is a natural reaction to loss. We may suffer when losing a family member or friend, a pet, we may mourn a relationship ending. There are many effects that can come when you are coping with grief. Bereavement can make you feel exhausted, lost and empty, leave you having trouble sleeping, make you feel anxious, numb, guilty, angry for example.

Hypnotherapy will help you to process these difficult emotions. It will help you to move forward. Contact me today to find out how Hypnotherapy will help you.


Hypnotherapy for childhood anxiety, depression, fears and phobias

Childhood fears and phobias are normal reactions to feeling unsure and vulnerable. Children may fear monsters, certain foods, being alone, imaginary creatures etc. Some children are more sensitive and overly fearful. Here they may need some extra support to reduce anxiety, to normalise the fears.

Your child may be finding it difficult with moving to a new house, bullying or a separation. Your child may be suffering from additional worries or feelings of sadness.

Introducing a comforting hypnotherapy approach, I have found to be helpful. Contact me today to book a chat on how this could help your child.


Hypnotherapy for childhood sleep problems

Every child is different, and every child has a different natural sleep pattern as do we. I can offer help with your babies sleep through to children in their teenage years. It could be a rhythm out of sync, comfort needed, fear, illness and so many more things that sometimes we will never fully understand.

Introducing a comforting hypnotherapy approach, I have found to be helpful. Contact me today to book a chat on how this could help your child.


Hypnotherapy for depression

Imagine waking up tomorrow feeling refreshed, positive, excited by life. Feeling resilient. Hypnotherapy can help you to step out of depression.

Depression is a complex problem. Generally, we associate this with feeling of sadness, hopelessness, low self-esteem, guilt, lack of motivation, feeling tearful and upset. You may lack motivation, have no interest in things, not want to get out of bed, feel no enjoyment in life, find making decisions difficult.

Depression and low mood can respond very well to hypnotherapy, so if you do one thing today, send me a message to make contact and I’ll get back to you about meeting up for a talk on how I can help.


Hypnotherapy for fears

Imagine feeling safe, courageous, confident. Having faith in your abilities in all situations. Hypnotherapy can help you to overcome your fears.

Fear is a normal human reaction. Your heart races, palms go sweaty and you can have rapid breathing for example. It’s there to help protect us from danger. The feelings we get are normal and, in some situations, appropriate. However, they can become problematic. A fear of flying when you need to fly to another country can be tricky. We can fear things such as spiders, crowded spaces, the dark, heights, dogs and many more.

Treating fears with hypnotherapy works by removing your red alert reaction to the fear. In most cases just 4 sessions can be all it takes to be free of your fear. Contact me today to book a chat on how we can help you to feel free.

The direction that your life takes is making you happy. Hypnotherapy can help you to achieve mental strength, motivation and focus.

Work, Life and Sports goals can sometimes feel a far away achievement. Sometimes too far and you may feel you will never get there.

Hypnotherapy can help with focus, confidence, performance enhancement. It can help you to find your own inner strengths and resources and use them to your highest ability. Contact me today to book a chat to find out how this is going to help you achieve where you really want to be.

Pain is a distressing feeling. It can be a physical or sometimes even an emotional sensation caused by injury or illness. When we are in pain our bodies send information to our brains where we process and acknowledge the pain. It can have a negative impact on your quality of life.
