What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is not what you see on TV or in the movies. It's a very gentle approach to simply help you relax, we first of all with have a talk beforehand for 30-45 minutes, so I can get to know you and what you may be struggling with. Then I read out a relaxation script and perform the therapeutic hypnosis while you are relaxing to really help cement in your mind the changes you want to make. I basically talk with your subconscious, which often controls your negative feelings and habits, and help re-train it so you can feel more freedom in your life and make better choices. This is a very relaxing process, all you need to do is talk and then relax into the session and the results can be amazing.
I trained thoroughly with the National Hypnotherapy Society for a year, am also an Anxiety UK approved therapist and can help you with whatever you may be struggling with in your life. In particular I specialise in stress management, anxiety control, self-confidence or low self-esteem, poor eating patters or habits, fears and phobias, healing the adult survivor of childhood trauma as well as weight loss, smoking etc. My rates are very reasonable at £60 for a full 90-minutes plus a Hypnotherapy MP3 provided after the session. Most people only really require a few sessions to see the full benefit from Hypnotherapy with perhaps a week or two in between.
JC – More confidence and reduced anxiety/ stress – one session was very last minute for an interview. My confidence increased dramatically and I am a lot calmer regardless of my busy schedule.
HC – Dave made me feel at ease straight away, especially considering this was a topic I hadn't fully talked about with anyone. He was very understanding and never made me feel that what I was describing was weird or ‘not normal' (I am aware my case was a fairly random one!) I was slightly nervous about how the hypnotherapy would work but Dave described it all in great detail and made sure I was fully comfortable before starting. I walked away from the session with an overwhelming sense of relief, Dave made my huge life problem feel so manageable and allowed me to see it as a past problem rather than a present one. I also really admired the way he was so open about his own experiences with anxiety and hypnotherapy, it created a very relaxed atmosphere and it was refreshing to talk to someone who was so confidently open about having struggled in the past.
FW – The amount of follow up information that Dave provides shows his true driving passion for this service! He is not simply offering help to make money or get business, he invests a lot of time and energy in making sure you feel fully supported and he ensures you have such a wide variety of options available so that after treatment you can learn to help yourself too! Dave provided me with nutrition information, mindfulness exercises and showed me how I can take control of my own eating again! I would recommend Dave to anyone who is struggling in life, no matter how big or small the problem, he can help you fix it!
KW – Fantastic. Dave is so incredibly warm and approachable which are invaluable traits in a therapist. I felt so at ease speaking with him and felt I could really open up which is important and not always easy to do. I have had hypnotherapy before Dave's session but none have made me feel so relaxed and at ease.
