What is hypnotherapy?

For well over a hundred years hypnotherapy has been recognised by the medical profession as being an effective therapy for dealing with a wide range of conditions, phobias, anxieties, negative thoughts and unwanted habits.

The body which accredited my training - National Council for Hypnotherapy - provides a helpful definition of hypnotherapy:
HYPNOTHERAPY is the application of hypnotic techniques in such a way as to bring about therapeutic changes. An external influence – the Therapist – assists in activating the inner resources of a person – the Client – in order to achieve realistic goals.

The problems that HYPNOTHERAPY is best placed to help fall into the following broad classes:

Thoughts and ideas

People can suffer from thoughts of low self-esteem, or obsessive thoughts about someone or something. They may not be able, for example, to get out of their minds the idea that they are suffering from an illness, despite medical reassurance, or that a partner is unfaithful. HYPNOTHERAPY can help the client to change such ideas.


People often experience an irrational fear of a variety of insects, animals, objects or situations and HYPNOTHERAPY is particularly renowned for its effectiveness in assisting sufferers to overcome these distressing and inhibiting conditions.


People can suffer from a wide variety of distressing feelings such as panic attacks, anxiety, jealousy, guilt, anger or inadequacy. Whatever the problem feeling, HYPNOTHERAPY can deal with it more specifically than can a drug – and without harmful side effects.


People can find themselves in the grip of many habits that they seem unable to control, from something like nail-biting or smoking to more deep-seated compulsions.
HYPNOTHERAPY, using hypnotic techniques, can help to remove habits with precision and again, a total freedom from side effects.

There is a wide variety of issues and conditions which are generally accepted as being helped by hypnotherapy – here are the most common:

  • Smoking cessation

  • Nail biting
  • Enuresis
  • Anorexia Nervosa
  • Bulimia
