Does Hypnosis work?
Does Hypnosis work? There have been a number of studies (too many to list!) showing the efficacy of Hypnosis in habit control, smoking cessation, weight loss, reduction of distressing symptoms including IBS and hot flashes amongst others. Here are a few recent studies:
Clinical studies conducted by University Hospital of South Manchester found that Hypnosis is especially effective at reducing the uncomfortable symptoms of IBS. “Hypnotherapy in Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A Large Scale Audit of a Clinical Service With Examination of Factors Influencing Responsiveness.” W Consalkorale Ph.D., L Houghton Ph.D., P. Whorwell MD. F.R.C.P. Department of medicine, University of South Manchester
Clinical studies conducted by researchers at Baylor University in 2012 observed 187 women who suffered with hot flashes as a result of menopause and breast cancer treatment. After a 5 week course of Hypnosis participants noted a 75% drop in the occurrence of hot flashes.

What happens in a Hypnotherapy session?
Firstly, your exact requirements are elicited and a measure of success is defined. It is important that we get to the root of what you want, what your expectations are, timelines, how will we know it is working etc.
If appropriate, I will discuss and teach you an NLP technique that specifically targets the issue which you can use whenever you need.
Next, the hypnotherapy starts. You will be gently led into a calm and relaxing state of awareness. Shortly thereafter, the suggestions and therapy is delivered (as per the agreed requirements). Finally you will be awoken and a short discussion will conclude the session.
What is it like to be hypnotised?
Being hypnotised is nothing unusual, in fact you probably have already experienced a state of hypnosis today. Hypnosis quite simply is about focus and awareness. For instance, when you play a game you are focused on the game itself, but you are still aware of what is going on around you. You can choose to continue playing the game or not.
In a hypnotic state, you will be relaxed and focusing on what I am saying, but you will still be aware of what is going on around you. You can choose to continue or terminate the hypnosis as you wish. And just like the game doesn’t make you do things you don’t want to, in hypnosis, similarly I can not make you do anything you don’t want to.
How long will the effects of Hypnotherapy last?
The results and markers for success will be discussed at length during your first session. For smoking cessation, fears, phobias and panic attacks the results are often life long and results will vary from person to person.
“In a 2012 study, 85 percent of IBS patients who reported improvement after hypnosis still felt better up to seven years later. “The conclusion is that hypnotherapy could reduce both the consumption of healthcare and the cost to society, and that hypnosis therefore belongs in the arsenal of treatments for IBS,” researcher Magnus Simrén said in a statement.” Read more
Do you diagnose illnesses?
No, all diagnoses should be conducted by your GP.
If you want hypnotherapy for IBS, headaches, pain relief, eating disorders and extreme anxiety or depression you should always consult with your doctor first.
I do not treat clients who self-diagnose IBS, headaches and pain relief.
What if I am asthmatic, diabetic or epileptic?
Please let me know if you suffer from Asthma, Diabetes or Epilepsy when scheduling an appointment.
