Consultations

My consultations have recently been re-structured to work in with my other commitments and voluntary work.

I can be seen at my Poulton Le Fylde (near Blackpool, Lancashire) base. First session will last for 60-90 minutes depending on the presenting issues. Second and further sessions last up to 60 minutes. It is impossible to say how many sessions will be required, until I have spoken to you, as some issues can be dealt with in one session but more complex issues can take up to eight sessions. To contact me for further information, or to book an appointment, please ring me on 07967 320092.

I use a mixture of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnotherapy and Thought Field Therapy (TFT), where necessary.

This is a list of the more popular Hypnotherapy treatments that I can work with you on;

  • Life Coaching
  • Hypnotic Slimming
  • Hypnotic Gastric Band
  • Anxiety & Panic Attacks
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Phobias
  • Regression
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Sports enhancement

This list is not exhaustive and I will discuss your personal requirements during the initial consultation.

Hypnotic Gastric Band & Hypnotic Slimming

Please also read the article here

Hypnotic Slimming and Gastric Band Hypnotherapy, has become the new tool celebrities are using to loose weight. Before we had Weight Loss Hypnosis we had Gastric Band Operations or Gastric Band Surgery as it is formally known to help people to loose weight but due to the huge expense at £8,500 a time and also the complications that have been reported which can happen during and after the operation, more and more people are now using Hypnosis for Weight Loss.

After the initial consultation (90mins) I would expect to see my clients for a further three session. This can vary depending on your circumstances but is a good rule of thumb.

Anxiety and Panic Attacks

There is a social, cultural and medical story that prevails at this time in human experience, and that is that many of our minds are somehow broken, everyone is becoming mentally ill and that the solution to that is to prescribe medication. This isn’t an opinion; it’s a fact borne out by the number of prescriptions for anti-depressants being doled out with alarming regularity.

Based on work by a close friend of mine (Gill Batty) of Neuro Psychological Reprogramming in Scotland, new ways have been found to deal with this age old condition.

Using a specially written hypnotic and relaxation script, the body can be re-programmed to understand its own messages in a new way; reacting in a different way and thereby achieving new results.

After the initial consultation (90mins) I would expect to see my clients for a further four to six sessions. This can vary depending on your circumstances but is a good rule of thumb.

Many clients find that the experience opens up new areas where they would like work to be done, but this usually can fit within the suggested number of sessions

Smoking Cessation

Please also read the article here

It’s no secret that lighting a cigarette is an easily formed habit, and one that can have some serious consequences.

Most people have a hard time quitting due to the addictive nature of nicotine, but also, at the end of they day, they don’t really want to or don’t have a reason formed in their mind as to why they truly want to quit.

There’s a big financial benefit, as you can save a lot of money by quitting, and in this economy, that’s important,” he said. “You can also affect your family in a positive way, especially your kids, if you quit. They really pay the saddest cost, because even if you smoke outside, the dust and fumes are still on you and there’s still health risks. Their health will improve immediately.

After the initial consultation (90mins) I would expect to see my clients for a further three to four sessions. This can vary depending on your circumstances but is a good rule of thumb.

Phobias

A phobia is an irrational, intense and persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, animals, or people. The main symptom of this disorder is the excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared stimulus. When the fear is beyond one’s control, and if the fear is interfering with daily life, then a diagnosis under one of the anxiety disorders can be made.When an individual has a phobia, the fear is immeasurable. It is so deeply set in the subconscious mind that it overpowers all normal thoughts when it is triggered.

Phobias are of two types – direct and indirect. Both are a symptom of pent up emotions, formed differently and need to be treated differently.

• Direct phobia is when an individual has experienced the emotion of being frightened but prefers to forget about it and tries to overcome the emotion of fear. However, when a he experiences similar event, fear erupts again.

• Indirect phobia is caused when one has been anxious on several occasions, over a long period of time.

Hypnotherapy helps you to understand the nature of the phobia and see it in a different light. Hypnotherapy will not only enable to lessen the effect of phobia but in many cases will remove it all together.

After the initial consultation (90mins) I would expect to see my clients for a further one to two sessions. This can vary depending on your circumstances but is a good rule of thumb.

Regression

Many people have little or no memories of childhood. This could be the minds way of protecting us from unhappy events and personal trauma or it might simply be that we cannot remember. Even the happy events, the Birthdays, the Holidays are hard to bring to mind.

With Regression Hypnosis you can safely return back to those happy events and relieve them in all their detail. Alternatively you can view them as an observor, watching the events unfold as thought they were on a cinema screen. Some people also want to understand feelings they have and wish to explore what really went on in their past. This can be achieved in a safe protected way.

If you thought you could never change your history, you may be right, but what if you could change how you react to your history, how you perceived your history to be? Maybe going back is your answer?

After the initial consultation (90mins) I would expect to see my clients for a further single session. Many clients want to do additional work or re-visit their past a number of times. The choice is up to you.

Sports Enhancement

Sports Hypnosis in the past has been focused mainly on visualisation. “See yourself doing well in your event etc etc”, but Sports Hypnosis has much more to offer…

A lot of athletes talk about being in the zone, or getting in the zone – but how do they do this? What is the zone?

A fully focused mind thinking only about the event ahead is certainly in the zone. But is this any different to being in a trance? I would argue not. The same mind concentration and focus is required in both. Some argue that Hypnosis is all about relaxing in a chair, in deep relaxation with music playing in the background. The athletes I have worked with have proved that this is a myth from the ill-informed. Together we have been doing hypnotic work on the poolside (they were swimmers) and whilst swimming; no music playing (in fact all the noise of a training session in progress), no chair to sink into (in fact standing wet on the poolside sliding into trance), just focused mind over matter performance. Perhaps this is exactly what the zone is – focused mental acuity for the task in hand, dismissing all distractions as merely events proving how focused you really are. I think we all could do with a dose of this in work and play!

After the initial consultation (90mins) I would expect to see my clients for as many sessions as they (and myself) feel necessary. The choice is up to you.
