Hypnotherapy for Health Issues

Firstly, I have to state clearly. I am not a doctor. I am not medically trained (apart from my St. Johns First Aid Certificate). And I am not a magician. I don’t work with labels. I don’t care what disorder someone has diagnosed for you from their well-worn copy of the DSM-5. I only work with symptoms. If one by one we can help you to dissolve those symptoms … guess what? The label has dissolved as well.

I have had hundreds of clients who have seen hypnotherapy as the last throw of the dice.

Some have tolerated debilitating symptoms for years. Many have sought help from medical professionals, psychologists, psychiatrists, and other healing modalities, and for reasons unknown their health symptoms are still present.

In that situation I might suggest the following to a client …

You don’t have a conscious problem. If you did then you would be able to fix it. You have a subconscious problem. It is a problem that exists in the subconscious mind of which you are not consciously aware.

I’m a great believer in neural plasticity (the brain’s ability to rewire). I love the work of Dr Norman Doidge (The Brain’s Way of Healing) and other neurology specialists.

Hypnotherapy has helped many people to alleviate the symptoms of some of the following health issues:

IBS and other gut related issues

Anxiety, OCD and PTSD

Cutting and self-harm

Chronic pain



Alcohol and drug habits/addictions

Cancer support

Skin problems such as eczema


Post stroke recovery

And many other debilitating symptoms and labels.


For most issues I suggest a 3 session individual program.

The first session is 90 minutes while following sessions are up to 60 minutes each.

Hypnosis and NLP allows you to suspend the conscious mind, so that it is merely observing. This allows your subconscious mind to be accessed. This is where we store habits, behaviours, memories and automatic patterns. Hypnosis allows you to observe yourself and “the problem” from a different perspective. If the problem is indeed of a pscho-somatic nature, we will allow the subconscious mind to re-wire, knowing that the problem might have been created at a time for an unspecified reason, however that reason doesn’t apply now. The problem is from the past and it can remain in the past.
