Your unconscious mind stores an enormous amount of information and emotion, something over which you will probably have no conscious knowledge. However, this information still causes your conscious mind to think and react, creating conflicts between the ways both parts of the mind see the world. This internal conflict can give rise to problems that are seen and noticed externally, such as physical changes or emotional outbursts.

One example of this is phobias, some of the most common mental conditions people have.The conscious mind knows that there is no logical reason to be afraid of spiders, for example, but the subconscious mind has attached a fear to the spider. That fear overrides every other emotion that you might feel upon seeing one.

Hypnotherapy can help address these problems by taking you on a journey of personal development and self-discovery. Hypnosis works by recognising, and making use of, the unconscious (or subconscious) parts of the mind.

Hypnotherapy is a recognised complementary therapy for a variety of conditions. By guiding you into a safe, aware yet relaxed and completely controlled state of hypnosis, we help you to identify the root cause of many issues and then address them, leaving you with a positive outlook on life.

Weight loss/management

Mental barriers play as important a part in your weight loss as your diet and exercise habits. Under hypnosis, you’ll be able to rationally identify any negative associations that you have with food such as bingeing or feelings of shame and guilt.

Smoking cessation

Hypnosis can help you to quit smoking. Smoking is both a physical and mental addiction, and hypnotherapy gives you the calm mindset to look at your smoking habits in a different way.

Sexual dysfunction

Sexual issues for men and women can be treated with hypnotherapy sessions if they’re psychological in nature. You may be nervous about having sex if you expect it to be painful or uncomfortable, and hypnosis can help you relax and feel less anxious.

Eating disorders/IBS

Eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia can be effectively treated with hypnosis as they come from subconscious anxieties. Research has shown that hypnotherapy can also help to reduce the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.


A lack of confidence often comes from beliefs and fears that have been held for a long time. Hypnosis calms the mind and encourages positive thinking, replacing negative thoughts with positive and confident ones.

Fears and phobias

Hypnotherapy is one of the best-known treatments for phobias - you may need as little as one session to start seeing positive effects. Whether you have a simple and common phobia or more deeply-rooted fears, we can help.


Depression is one of the most common mental conditions, and is frequently treated with hypnotherapy sessions. A deep level of hypnosis creates a mental state where you can think about the roots of your depression more clearly and create positive emotional associations.


Hypnotherapy can lessen your feelings of loss and loneliness, and may also make you feel more spiritually connected to the person who has passed away. If you are very distressed and upset following bereavement, hypnosis can calm your emotions and bring you peace.

Pain Management

In a hypnotic trance, you are less likely to feel pain because you’re more relaxed. Acute and chronic pains can be lessened with hypnosis, by making muscles less tense and relieving mental and emotional stress.

Infertility/ Childbirth

Hypnotherapy is not a cure for genetic infertility, but it can reduce the anxiety and worry you might feel about trying to conceive. Hypnosis can also relieve any pain or discomfort you might feel during pregnancy and childbirth.


Relaxing into a trance-like hypnotic state is the first step towards sleeping more easily. When you’re not anxious about trying to sleep, or worrying about issues that have been keeping you awake, sleep will be simpler and you’ll wake feeling more refreshed.

Exam nerves

If nervousness about exams is affecting your ability to study and remember information, a course of hypnosis could help. It can improve your focus and concentration, give you more confidence and make sure you remain calm during each exam.

Panic attacks

Positive thought and visualisation during hypnotherapy reduces the anxiety that leads up to a panic attack. Being hypnotised will also slow down your breathing and heart rate to stop you from hyperventilating.

Sports motivation

Hypnosis can give you the motivation to get back into a gym routine, take part in sports games and increase both concentration and endurance. It’s also ideal for taking away pre-match nerves and hesitations that could cost sports players their win.


As the behaviours and patterns of OCD start in the mind, people with compulsive disorders are some of the most receptive to hypnotherapy. In a calmer state, you’ll be able to think more rationally about your habits and eventually change them for the better.

Motivation/ Public speaking

In every area of life, the most motivated people are some of the most successful at what they do. Hypnosis is a powerful motivational tool for shy speakers and anyone who wants to have more confidence and belief in themselves.
