Clinical hypnotherapy, when practised by a qualified therapist, is an absolutely safe therapeutic tool, endorsed by the BMA, and is often successful when other more conventional treatments have failed.  It has been found to be particularly useful in the following conditions though the list is by no means exhaustive and can be effective in any condition where emotional factors are involved or where behaviour patterns or habits need changing.

I must mention, however, that there can be no guarantee of specific results and that the results can vary.



Hypnosis can be particularly effective with weight control and maintenance of weight control, and I now offer the revolutionary gastric band hypnosis, Hypno-Band, designed for those who have a high Body Mass Index (BMI).



This one session technique lasts approximatley two and a half hours.  If you are in any doubt whether you should stop smoking, consider some of the following facts: Approximately 120,000 people die each year as a result of smoking; smoking is directly responsible for approximately 87% of lung cancer cases and causes most cases of emphysema and chronic bronchitis; it is a major factor in coronary heart disease and stroke; if you smoke 20 cigarettes a day your heart beats approximatley an extra 10,000 beats in 24 hours and every cigarette robs you of up to approximatley 6 minutes of life expectancy.

Within 24 hours of stopping smoking can experience benefits: your blood pressure may be nearer to normal; your pulse may drop and your hands and feet are likely to be warmer.  Within approximatley 72 hours your bronchial tubes may begin to relax and you should be able to breathe more easily.  Within 2-3 weeks circulation may improve, walking can become easier and lung function may increase by up to 30%
