Is there anything hypnotherapy is not suitable for?

It is not advisable to seek treatment if you are currently suffering from the effects of severe depression, if you are heavily under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or if you have had and are currently experiencing a psychosis and are currently having psychotic episodes, if you have a personality disorder, if you are bipolar, have schizophrenia or have epilepsy. In these instances, please speak to your GP for referral.

I usually recommend a minimum of three to six sessions to address the route cause of the issue.

This is something I have had many years experience of dealing with as I have lived with the condition for the best part of my life and through perseverance and introspection, managed to successfully overcome 90 percent of the symptoms. OCD is like a wolf in sheep's clothing. It can come to you in many different disguises but the wolf is really an overwhelming feeling of anxiety and fear of certain future events over which we feel we have no control. OCD falsely persuades you that you can manage these difficult feelings and obsessive thoughts through doing compulsions which only serves to increase the anxiety and the need to continue doing compulsions. Trying to fight the thoughts and to control them makes the OCD stronger but there are ways to deal with OCD so that you can live a happier life. If you are struggling with OCD and really want to find a solution that enables you to be the person you want to be, then I would be delighted to help you. Cognitive Hypnotherapy was instrumental in helping me to overcome my difficulties and I would love the opportunity to help you too.

Depression, Stress & Anxiety:

According to HSE statistics, 12.5 million working days were lost to stress, anxiety and depression from data gathered between 2016/17 which goes to show just how many people struggle with these issues in today's fast paced modern society. These conditions are very common (especially in today's world) and if you have been struggling to deal with these issues, then we can work together to help you find a solution as a way to becoming calmer and more relaxed. I have spent many years battling with anxiety and I would love to help you overcome this obstacle so you can live the life you want feeling happier and more positive.

Sports Performance:

Are you training for a sporting event? Maybe you would like more help in a particular area so you can be the best you can be? If so, we can work together to achieve your goal.

Being a runner, I understand the nature and demands of training and what it takes to prepare for an athletic event. I would love to help you maximise your potential and help you on your way to the success you want to achieve by carefully creating a coaching strategy that supports your needs.

Public Speaking:

This is one of the most common fears and the good news is - it doesn't have to be! If you have a presentation coming up in work or if you would like to work on your confidence and presenting skills, we can work together to help accomplish your needs.

Smoking Cessation:

Have you been waiting for the right time to quit smoking but just not got round to it? Are you struggling to quit for good but always seem to go back? I can help you kick the habit for good by guiding you towards a solution that helps you to make better choices for your health and wellbeing.

Confidence & Self-esteem:

We all go through times where we feel we may be lacking confidence in certain situations. There is no reason why you should feel that you cannot achieve everything you want due to a limiting belief. This is something that we can work together on to find out what the root causes of these issues are so you can begin to live life to the fullest and enjoy being you.

Fears & Phobias:

Are you struggling with a particular fear? Perhaps you have a fear of flying or maybe you want to overcome a fear of heights? Feeling stressed due to a phobia can cause a lot of anxiety and can limit your potential to live the life you enjoy. You don't have to live your life restricted by these negative feelings. We can work together to resolve the root of whatever it is holding you back so you enjoy your life to the fullest.

If your particular issue is not listed above, please send an enquiry anyway and we can discuss the options.
