Hypnotherapy in Reading & surrounding areas.
As an experienced and responsible hypnotherapist you can find me on the hypnotherapy directory of the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) , Find a Therapy.Org and also the Complementary & Natural Health Care Council (CNHC). I maintain full Public Liability and Indemnity Insurance.
Over the years I have taken additional training's in weight loss hypnotherapy where I am licensed as a Hypno-Band™ hypnotherapist (The original gastric -band hypnotherapy) and smoking cessation (stop smoking hypnotherapy). My initial training in Stop Smoking was with Valarie Austin the creator of the "stop smoking in an hour technique". Since then I have studied with many other trainers as i am always seeking to improve. I can be found on the Central Register of Stop Smoking Therapists which is a specialised Hypnotherapy directory when you are looking for a smoking cessation hypnotherapist.
Choosing your hypnotherapist in Reading
Please exercise caution and make sure the hypnotherapist who says they are the leading hypnotherapist in this or that really are as good as they say they are. Unfortunately the Advertising Standards Authority do not cover websites. The greater percentage of quality therapists will be affiliated to one or more governing bodies and have agreed to be bound by their rules. This will also give you the piece of mind to know that you are in the hands of a fully trained professional. They will also most definitely carry adequate insurance and lastly most likely also offer a free initial consultation over the phone. and lastly know that there are 60 minutes in an hour.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a form of complementary therapy where by the therapist will guide the client into an altered state of consciousness, usually through various relaxation techniques. This state is called hypnosis.
Whilst the client is in this state they will find that the conscious mind is relaxed and the subconscious mind is actually in a heightened state of awareness.
How does Hypnotherapy work?
Whilst the client is in hypnosis the skilled therapist will now essentially talk to the subconscious mind to help the client achieve their desired outcome. You can not be made to do anything against your will.
What is Hypnosis like
Most people find it very relaxing and are surprised that they are still fully aware of their surroundings during the session. There may be a loss of time like when you are asleep. Some people will also not remember what was said on a conscious level.
Is it safe
Hypnotherapy is a safe practice however some conditions are contraindicated such as borderline personality disorders, psychosis, senility and even some serious heart conditions. Luckily we have other tools in the tool box should a contraindication be apparent from the initial consultation.

Stop Smoking & Vaping Hypnotherapy in Reading and surrounding areas
Stopping smoking is one of the best things you can do for your health Whether you want to stop smoking cigarettes, stop smoking cigars or stop vaping. However, I am aware from the hundreds of clients that I have successfully helped to stop over the last 16 years, that prior to coming to see me, they had tried patches, gums, nasal sprays or tablets or courses such as Allen Carr's Easyway or even seen another smoking cessation hypnotherapist all to no avail. Of course these methods will help some but nothing beats working with a qualified stop smoking hypnotherapist like myself.
So what happens in a session
The session is personal to you, as the reasons you started to smoke where probably different from the reasons that made me start. Likewise the reasons that made me stop may also be different from the reasons that will make you stop now.
All sessions are between 75 - 100 minutes even though I use Valarie Austins stop smoking in an hour method. I have found with the additional specialist stop smoking training and through experience that the more difficult part is to give my clients strategies to deal with the issues that life throws up from time to time. Imagine that stopping smoking is like cutting your grass. If you do not pull the weeds up (smoking habit) from the roots, they will only grow back so this has to be covered.
So once the form filling is out the way, we first eradicate the weeds (the smoking habit) like a good weed killer would getting down to the roots.
Then have the main hypnotherapy session then finish off with how to deal with any fresh weeds. Should someone drop them on you.
By following this method we are happy to offer a six month guarantee*. So would you like to stop for a few weeks or stop for good?
* If you smoke during the first 6 months please just contact us immediately and we will get you in for a top up session.
Weight loss hypnotherapy in Reading & surrounding areas.
Weight Loss is unfortunately now a part of society. A recent survey of 2000 UK adults found that almost twp thirds 64% said that they were on a weight loss diet almost all of the time. Now the reasons for this literal growth in the diet industry are expansive, from the proliferation of labour saving devices, through the fact that the greater majority of us are now in sedentary occupations. Not withstanding that the majority of the food like substances that adorn our shelves of our supermarkets have more chemicals than you would find in their cleaning cupboard. Unfortunately they do not come with the Safety Data Sheet like the products of the cleaning cupboard.
Diets Don't Work
Many people think they have tried every diet under the Sun and still never seem to to be able to get sustainable long term weight loss. Unfortunately it is not as simple as that. There is usually some pseudo science behind all of these diets however most people do not have the knowledge to see the full picture. The word diet in Greek history not only meant the food but how we lived our daily lives. When I say most people unfortunately I have to include many doctors, nurses, nutritionists, therapists and personal trainers who may all be specialists in their area but not in how to live our daily life.
