What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a type of complementary therapy that uses hypnosis to treat psychological conditions or change undesirable habits. Hypnosis is achieved with the help of a trained hypnotherapist, who uses guided relaxation methods to alter your state of consciousness, which is often referred to as a naturally occurring trance-like state. When under hypnosis, you will become completely relaxed and more susceptible to suggestion. Hypnotherapy services can be used in isolation or alongside other treatments and can benefit your physical health and mental wellbeing in many ways.
If you're looking to lose weight, our weight loss hypnotherapy service may be more effective and efficient for you than dieting techniques and exercise alone. At Focused Hypnosis, we look at the process of weight and work with you to tackle the thoughts and feelings that trigger bad habits, such as binge eating and not exercising, leading to weight gain. We help you tap into your drive and determination, which will enable you to make beneficial diet and exercise health choices.
Focused Hypnosis could also help you quit smoking, as our hypnotherapy service will help you discover what is triggering your smoking habits. We will work with you to disassociate the bad habit of smoking with positive outcomes, such as smoking relieving anxiety. By partnering you with an experienced stop smoking hypnotherapist and an effective method of quitting, we hope that you will achieve the right mindset for success. With your tenacity and the help of your hypnotherapist, we treat the root of the problem, so you can change your smoking habits and live a healthier lifestyle.
Low self-confidence and self-esteem can affect your performance at work, your behaviour in relationships and hold you back from achieving your aspirations if you leave them unchallenged and unaddressed. However, Focused Hypnosis' hypnotherapy services can help you regain your self-confidence. We will partner you with a qualified hypnotherapist who will encourage you to think positively about yourself, your goals, values and interests, and will help you tackle the cause of your low self-confidence.
Often waiting lists for anxiety treatment available on the NHS are long, so Focused Hypnosis' anxiety therapy could offer you an accessible and efficient form of natural therapy. At Focused Hypnosis, your hypnotherapist will help you achieve a deeply relaxed mindset, where you can clearly imagine the thing or situation which makes you anxious. Then, we will work with you to tackle the negative thought patterns that occur with anxiety and talk you through coping methods. By mentally facing your fear in a safe environment, you will be more likely to tackle it in real life.
Tackle a phobia
Phobias are common and have many causes, but they can be debilitating and can be tackled to ensure that you can live your life to the fullest. Hypnotherapy for phobias, with us, does not use exposure therapy.
Instead, we want you to gain a different perspective on your phobia so that it becomes less overwhelming and can no longer have a detrimental impact on your life. To find out more about how Focused Hypnosis could help you tackle your phobia, click the button below.
Insomnia is generally caused by an underlying anxiety, such as stress from work, relationship issues, or financial problems. However, hypnotherapy services have been commended for being one of the best natural remedies for the condition. In a safe, calm environment, your hypnotherapist will help you discover which anxiety is triggering your insomnia and disrupting your sleep. Then, the hypnotherapist will work with you to help you think more positively about your concern and help you relax.
We all experience stress from time to time, which we all deal with differently. Whilst some people thrive under pressure, often feeling stressed for a prolonged period can have a dramatic negative effect on both your mental wellbeing and physical health. At Focused Hypnosis, we will work with you to break the negative thought patterns that occur with stress and teach you more healthy ways of responding to overwhelming situations.

How does hypnotherapy work?
Hypnotherapy is about tapping into the naturally occurring state of trance, which is the same as glazing over or being zoned out. A hypnotherapist can help you to be in this state deliberately. They can then use language based tools and techniques to help you to change your thoughts, feelings and behaviour to help you to achieve your goals.
