I am so impressed with the results and so grateful to have my life back. I would recommend hypnosis to anyone suffering with anxiety or panic attacks."

Review by Polly on Google My Business

An anxious woman leaning out of a window at her Sheffield houseThe first and most important thing to let you know up front is that you are not alone. In fact, more than 1 in 10 people are likely to have a ‘disabling anxiety disorder’ at some stage in their life.

There are just over 1.5 million people living in Sheffield, so around 156,900 people just like you will experience problems related to anxiety.

Don't suffer in silence

There are many different ways of tackling anxiety and there is the potential for improvement. If  you keep doing what you have done you will keep getting what you have got.

If you have reached the point of "enough is enough" we are here to help you to explore a potential solution to anxiety that you maybe hadn't considered before now.

I recently went to Richard for hypnotherapy because I was suffering crippling nerves and anxiety when attending job interviews. It was really affecting my ability to secure jobs at the interview stage because, although I was getting the interviews following what must have been good applications, I... was not managing to get the jobs.I had three sessions and found them fantastic. In addition, Richard forwards his recording of the sessions afterwards in case anything has been missed whilst under hypnosis, and also giving time to reflect again and reaffirming what he said during the hypnosis. The interview I attended after the last session went well and I secured the job. I can’t say that I wasn’t still very nervous because I was, but I managed to calm myself using the techniques Richard recommended. I would not hesitate to recommend Richard and his hypnotherapy to anyone. If you are experiencing confidence or anxiety issues, I would say just go for it as you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.read more

First off this place is amazing, I went without knowing what I was getting into but Richard is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. I went here for hypnosis sessions due to my anxiety and left with a renewed mindset and tips to help me deal with my problem day to day. For those questioning... wether you should go, don't hesitate. Richard knew more about my problem than I did and made me feel incredibly comfortable. Would definitely recommend!read more

I sought help from Richard with regard to anxiety and depression. I was looking for help to clear the 'chatter' in my mind so that I can more easily focus and make progress towards goals that are important to me. I found the deep mindfulness I gained from the sessions helped to clear my mind... and give me tools that I can use in everyday situations. I am more able to calm myself for work presentations and better focus on what is needed for my family.I feel like I have tapped into the core of who I am and can now channel my inner energy for postive outcomes for me.The recordings of the sessions were great in helping me continue my practice after my sessions with Richard and his nuturing and assertive style made me feel very comfortable and at ease.read more

I originally found Richard on Twitter (@mr_hypnotherapy) and had never really considered hypnotherapy for my irrational fear of flying so decided to contact him.We did an hour consultation where Richard found out about me and got all the info he needed to tailor the hypnotherapy sessions to my... unique requirements.The hypnosis itself was brilliant and one thing I found especially helpful was the fact that Richard taught me how to do self hypnosis, plus both of the hour long hypnotherapy sessions I had were recorded and given to me on a USB stick to take home, so I can listen back to them whenever I want!Safe to say Richard is excellent at what he does. I flew to Holland and back in the same day with ZERO anxiety a couple of months after my sessions. Fast forward 18 months and I've flown to America and back 4 times plus several internal flights whilst on business. I wouldn't have been able to do this before seeing Richard.Thank you so much Richard!read more

I had suffered from panic attacks regularly in the past due to anxiety, it got to a point where I felt like I couldn't cope anymore. I visited Richard for an initial consultation where he gave me some tips on how to cope until our first session and even that was an unbelievable amount of help. I... have had only one session with Richard and I feel as if the anxiety has near enough disappeared from my life. I finally feel like my old self again. Highly recommend, such a lovely man and so easy to get along with, felt like I had known him for years.read more

I got in contact with Richard because I was struggling with confidence and anxiety around my placement as a student paramedic. I had previously been having CBT sessions, which were okay but not impactful enough for me. Whilst having an occupational health check, I was encouraged to try hypnosis,... and a Google search later, I came across Richard. I was a little dubious at first, because I thought that I would not be able to go into trance and that it wouldn't work for me. But Richard had no doubt about the former. He talked me through all my questions and concerns and reassured me that if it wasn't for me, I would get my money back. He also highlighted to me that hypnosis is not a magic wand, it doesn't solve the problem for you; it gives you the tools to help you help yourself.Listening to Richard is like being immersed in honey; his words and the way he speaks makes you feel safe and calm. Being in a trance is like that period before you fall asleep. And it was so easy to get there. I was aware of everything at the time, but now I look back on it, I wouldn't remember the things that Richard was saying to me. If I wanted to move, I could have done, but I was so relaxed that I didn't even want to move my hand to scratch my nose. After every trance, I awoke feeling absolutely amazing and so good about myself. I don't feel like hypnosis particularly helped me when I think about it. However, it must have done, because I have since become a qualified paramedic. My mentor said that the change in my behaviour and confidence was profound. Maybe my conscious mind is unaware of the changes in my subconscious and that's why I don't feel different? I don't know how this stuff works, but I suppose it did! So, thank you Richard, you've helped me open the door to my brand new career.The only reason why Richard doesn't get 5 stars is because he forgot about one of our appointments and turned up 15minutes late, and I wasn't emailed a copy of our second recording session and was therefore unable to listen to it in my free time.read more

How could hypnotherapy help you tackle anxiousness?

Anxiety is a focus on the future combined with an overactive imagination that contemplates things being a way you don't want them to be. Your brain can't take the chance that what you are imagining isn't really happening right now so the fight of flight response is triggered.

Hypnosis in Sheffield for anxiety could help you to interrupt this learned behaviour. This could be interrupted consciously using specific imagination and breathing based techniques.

Hypnotherapy could help you to bring about unconscious changes as well. This is where you are more how you would like to be without trying to be. Your behaviour just happens to be what you would like it to be without consciously trying to make it that way. Quite often it can be a combination of both conscious and unconscious change.

My problem was weight loss and not having the motivation to do anything about it. I contacted Richard Hennessy and after one chat and one hypnosis... session I was on my way. The actual hypnosis was nothing like I imagined. I thought I would go into a trance like in the movies!! I was totally aware of everything the whole time and at the end felt completely relaxed. Before hypnosis I would eat because it was meal time regardless of whether I was hungry, but after, I only eat when I am hungry and I can leave food on my plate instead of clearing it - a flashback to childhood days when you couldn't leave the table until your plate was clear. I had one more recording from Richard, because I couldn't get to another appointment, and don't feel I need anymore. If I feel as if I am slipping back into old ways I listen to the recording and feel fine again. Richard provides a recording of all sessions to take away with you so its not like he is pressuring you to going back again and again.I would fully recommend him to anyone. Thankyou Richard!!read more

What is your unease based on?

Anxiety is the worrying about things that haven't yet happened. It tends to be that people can be very anxious about things that have a very small chance of actually happening. In some cases, the low chance of something happening does nothing to reduce the amount of worry it causes.Anxiety can be a totally normal and natural reaction in certain situations but when it has a negative impact on your life it is time to something about it.

Anxious person

Could feeling this unease actually be useful?

A study has shown that anxiety can actually be useful in some situations. Anxious people pick up on other people's aggressive facial expressions faster than non-anxious people.In this kind of social situation, anxiety helps but most of the time anxiety is not required to be at high levels. Hypnosis can help you reduce your stress levels.

Different people experience anxiety differently

We have treated countless people over the years who have been anxious and there are no two people who have experienced it identically. There are wide-ranging symptoms which may or may not occur when someone is experiencing anxiety or an anxiety attack.

What many people do experience as part of their anxiety is fear and worry that their symptoms are indicators of something more serious. People often think that they have heart problems because of the palpitations that sometimes happen. This can result in mobile monitoring being used over the course of a few days or weeks. The results from this testing is often the confirmation that there is no heart problem. They are told: "it's just anxiety".

This does not match in with their experience though. How could "just anxiety" cause that feeling that was SO unpleasant? It often leads to worry that the doctors have missed something which just fuels more anxiety. Far from the diagnosis of "just anxiety" helping, it often makes things worse.
