What is Hypnotherapy?

GHRHypnosis for Health

I am counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist based in Leicestershire. I have been qualified for around 10 years having previously worked in Human Resources for a large International company. A strong interest in health, well being and welfare led me to continue my studies, progressing from HR into counselling then hypnotherapy enabling me to offer support and guidance to those in need and help them move on in their life.

Having experienced the positive effects of this type of therapy myself and seeing the results and delighted faces and change in the people I see, I am my own testament to the true power of counselling and hypnosis as a complimentary effective medical intervention. As a result and with my years of experience I am able to understand and empathise with my clients on a deep level which can facilitate great change.

Hypnotherapy can be instant, requiring nothing of you but a willingness to change. By working together, it is your subconscious mind that can bring about instant and lasting behavioural change, without the need for extensive therapy sessions.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis can best be described as when a persons mind enters an altered state of consciousness, like day dreaming. You are not in a deep sleep and not aware of what’s going on around you, you are awake the whole time, but in a deep trance like state. When in this trance state, the subconscious mind becomes extremely active and is more alert and imaginative than during a normal awake state. It’s at this point your subconscious mind takes over from your conscious and facilitate great change.

You have complete control throughout the session and you are awake, you could choose to end the therapy at any point if you wished. As your therapist I will guide you safely using professional techniques to achieve the results that we have previously agreed upon during consultation.

Your subconscious mind listens to my voice in a subliminal way and when I talk directly to your subconscious mind in this deeply relaxed state, this is then where we make the positive suggestions that automatically sit comfortably in your mind. When you come back into full conscious awareness these thoughts are enacted immediately.

All you need to do is truly want to change and be committed to it. Then you can sit back and relax in safety and comfort and let me do the rest. Often people have secondary conditions bought on by the presenting issue and we can review these independently, but an immediate and lasting change can be made that easily.

Contact me now and say goodbye to worry, dieting, cravings, stress, anxiety and any old behaviours or habits that don’t work for you any more – know that you can look, feel and be different!

Stop Smoking Campaign 2013

Have you seen the Department of Healths hard hitting campaign, where there is a Cancerous tumour growing inside a cigerette? It’s very graphic and is launched¬† in response to smokers who think that the health risks are greatly exagerated.

Stop Smoking 2013

If you’re a smoker its likely that you will quickly turn away from it as it is pretty gross, or like the smoker in the advert, pop outside for a well earned fag.

As an ex smoker, I know how hard people THINK it is to stop smoking. You’re ADDICTED to it, you can’t STOP yourself etc etc. The truth is, it isn’t difficult to stop smoking, you just have to want to do it. Usually something will trigger you to stop, whatever that may be is down to you. Most smokers wish they were non smokers. Of course there are the die hards who insist they love every fag they take, fine, see you in Hospital.

Does it look familiar, propped up outside the back door in all weathers, cold, lighting up and taking in that big inhale, seeing the grey noxious smoke billowing around you? Most smokers hate the smell of smoke, no matter how many times you scrub your hands, spray perfume and chew mints the smoke smell will still be there as it permeates through your SKIN. How can it not when you are inhaling poisonous smoke into the very core of your being?

A friend of mine contracted the Norovirus over Christmas along with a terrible chest and lung infection. As a smoker this was doubly worse as her lungs were smoke damaged and her recovery has been laborious. She has been in complete agony with bruised ribs and lungs through coughing so hard, amongst other unsalubrious symptoms. My smoker friends never ask me for help funnily enough, only when they need it, as was now in this case. She realised the damage she had some to herself and as a young mum didn’t want any repercussions that her past smoking habits can bring. I’m happy to report she hasn’t had a cigarette in 12 days and recovering well.

What will it take you to realise you need to/want to stop? Whatever it is, don’t let it be too late. Stopping smoking with hypnosis is one of the easiest ways to give up. The body starts to repair itself within hours and you can begin to feel better immediately. You can see my website and blog page for further details and¬†my Stop Smoking New Year offer.

Don’t let it be too late for you, you can stop smoking anytime you want, it will be easier than you think.

Can You Afford To Smoke?

Leicester Therapy Centre 

The Budget 2012 brought about an instant increase (what shopkeeper was going to wait until 6pm?!)¬†of 37p¬†on a packet of 20 cigarettes, bringing them up to an average price of a whopping ¬£8 a packet, unbelievable! By the time you’ve bought them, some mints and the paper there’s not much change out of a tenner¬†is there?! Can you afford to lose a tenner a day, to¬†literally go up in smoke?

If you are a smoker, it will have crossed your mind at some point, more than once, that you must stop smoking one day, but then another day goes by and so on. Little reminders every so often such as:

  • You start dating a new boy/girlfriend who doesn’t smoke and they complain about¬†your faggy smell and taste
  • Your morning coughing fits are so bad, you actually wee a little bit to go along side your attractive bouts of¬†wheezing
  • You’re out with the boss trying to make a good impression, but keep thinking about how/when you escape for a fag
  • Your child doesn’t like cuddling you because Mummy/Daddy smells of cigarettes

You promise yourself, right I’m going to Stop Smoking once and for all!! All smokers need some sort of motivation to finally quit for good. For you¬†it may be one of the above or something similar, we haven’t even begun to look at the Health reasons yet¬†and they tend to be the last reason to quit. It could be that you simply cannot afford to smoke any more.

If you smoke 20 a day, you could be spending up to ¬£225 a month on cigarettes. Thats ¬£2,700 a year! What ever salary you’re on, that’s a huge chunk of it!

Just think what you could do with all that money, a fantastic luxury holiday, home improvements, a super shopping trip, upgrade your car. . .  What would you do with £2,700? Do you choose to set it alight and burn it away?

We’re all about saving money, 5p on a litre of fuel so you make sure you go to that Supermarket when the offer is on, or 3 for 2, yes please! We go to¬†great lengths to save pennies yet think nothing of wasting thousands of pounds a year on something that does¬†no good for us whatsoever.

Hypnotherapy for stopping smoking is one of the most successful ways to quit smoking for good in Leicester. Quick, easy and it does what it says on the tin. You come in a smoker, you leave a non smoker.

‘Does it really work?’ Is often asked, Yes it does, if you are 100% ready and committed to giving up smoking, hypnosis to stop smoking can work for you. If my lady who has been smoking for 60 years can stop –¬†she started smoking when she was 14 years old in the days when it was thought smoking did you good! So can you.
