Medical Conditions

Hypnotherapy is recommended by NICE for the management of (IBS) irritable bowel condition. In my experience hypnotherapy is especially suitable when the IBS is exacerbated by emotional states. Hypnotherapy may help with other conditions that where aggravation via emotional reactions has been observed, such as skin conditions.  


I am only permitted to work with medical conditions when a diagnosis has been made by a qualified physician. Hypnotherapy is not a substitute for medical treatment and success can never be guaranteed.  


The experience of hypnosis
In hypnosis the conscious and subconscious minds work together but with the critical part of the mind taking a back seat allowing more rapid changes to be made. Hypnosis is both associative and disassociative thus allowing unwanted reaction patterns, responses or habits to be released and the reactions or responses which are closer to the Client’s solution state to be more easily created. 
Hypnotherapy is not stage hypnosis and you would never do anything you do not wish to. My work focuses solely on helping you to do more of what you would like to do! You choose the changes, we build the pathway consciously together. I then use hypnosis to help you install those changes at a subconscious level. Pure and simple! 

Hypnosis is very pleasant and is described by many clients as being akin to the experience of drifting towards sleep, knowing they could wake up if they wished but simply not wanting to. Another way clients describe hypnosis is as a state of focused attention akin to concentrating fully on a film and then not initially noticing someone coming into the room and yet being aware at the same time. Other client’s describe the experience as “blissful like floating in a warm pool”, or as “concentrating absolutely and feeling totally motivated but with no feeling of effort”.

Did you know:
There is a significant body of scientific evidence supporting the concept that using hypnosis to “rehearse” a skill enables that skill to be performed with greater ease, at a higher level and with greater probability of accurate repetition. This applies equally whether the desired peak performance is to occur in sport, an exam, or some other field of endeavour.

A study at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York revealed the very positive input of just one session of hypnotherapy prior to breast cancer surgery (reported upon in the Daily Telegraph of 29 August 2007). The hypnotised patients not only had less pain, nausea and emotional distress than those who had a single session with a psychologist they also on average cost £384.48 less to treat mostly because they required less time in the operating theatre.
