Cambridge & Saffron Walden Clinics
Clinic now open for in person therapy.
Coronavirus & Lockdown Anxiety
Coronavirus & Lockdown Anxiety
Many people are finding that the stress of living in these strange times is causing an acute increase in anxiety and depression. I am available to see you via zoom or other online platforms as well as in my clinic in Saffron Walden.
I have been using hypnotherapy to help people for twenty years. Over the years I have had training in hypno-analysis, Time-line NLP, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Coherence Therapy and Memory Reconsolidation. I am also qualified as a counsellor, psychotherapist and a clinical hypnotherapist. Prior to becoming a Hypnotherapist I was a Physics Teacher at a Sixth Form College.
Health Professionals Treated
Many of my clients come from medical or mental health backgrounds. This includes doctors, nurses, a psychiatrist, psychologists and many psychotherapists and other hypnotherapists.
Hypnotherapy is a term used to describe the therapies that take place whilst the client or patient is under hypnosis. Hypnosis is state of deep relaxation and is often described as a state of heightened focus. It is a completely natural state to be in and my clients are incontrol of themselves at all times.
Can you be hypnotised?
Everyone I have ever had as a patient can be hypnotised. The hypnotic feeling is an individual experience. We all experience hypnosis in our own way. It is a pleasant state to be in and a natural state to be in.
Over the years I have seen more people with eating issues and weight problems than any other issue. My treatments depend upon the individual person.
Some clients need treatments that removes childhood habits and guilts about needing to finish everthing on the plate. Others need help to stop stress eating. Whatever your eating issue is I am very likely to have helped people like you.
Anxiety and Depression
Many of my clients who come to see me for phobias or confidence are also suffering from anxiety and perhaps some depression. Some have been on medication for years whilst others have been doing their best to avoid medication.
To help with anxiety I use suggesion hypnotherapy at first and then if necessary gentle psychotherpy under hypnosis. For my clients who are suffering from depression I will help them with memory reconsolidation.
Emetophobia or the fear of being sick is the most common phobia that I treat. I use memory reconsolidation to treat this issue. Once we have got to the underlying cause for this phobia then the issue just dissolves away.
One option for you if you want to stop smoking is to use E-cigarettes. If you do not want to suck on these devices then stopping smoking with hypnosis is your best option. I offer three sessions for stopping smoking. During the three sessions I will challenge your thoughts, feelings and beliefs about the habit of smoking.
Types of Hypnotherpy
Although it would appear that there are many different types of therapy under the term hypnotherapy there are really just two types. Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy under hypnosis. My Public Speaking Help and my Stop Smoking sessions are types of Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy. The rapid Hypnotic Psychotherapy that I use has the descriptive name of Memory Reconsolidation.
Memory Reconsolidation is an evidence based rapid form of psychotherapy using free association and hypnotic regression. Subconscious learned behaviour can cause feelings that are no longer relevant to our present lives.
Neuroscience has shown that it is possible to change these subconscious learned behaviours by finding the appropriate memories and contradicting them with the present day reality.
Using hypnosis as a technique to achieve memory reconsolidation is particulary effective for treating issues that other therapies have not fully resolved. This includes anxiety, emetophobia, trauma and many sexual issues.
Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy
Whilst the patient is under hypnosis the hypnotherapist will give positive suggestions to the patient. These are carefully worded so that the subconscious will accept them as safe and good alternatives to any previously learned behaviour or habits.
Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy is very effective for Stopping Smoking, Fear of Flying, Public Speaking Confidence and many issues related to confidence and relaxation.
