Hypnosis could help you

take control of your thoughts

and take control

of your life

This is the hypnotherapy Sheffield has been looking for

“I help people like you who want to help themselves to improve. You may have struggled to change for years and still not achieved your goals. I could help you find a different way to bring about change and put you in the driving seat of your own life”

Here’s how we work together…

1. Chat on the phone

Call me for a no obligation chat so I can find out a few more details about your goals. You can also ask me to call you at a time that suits you. Full details are on my contact page.

2. Initial consultation

Let’s meet up, have a chat about where you are and what you want for your future. Find out what has got in the way or what is missing and start to develop a plan for change.

3. Make change happen

Trance/hypnosis is natural and powerful. I know you can go into trance already. Find out for yourself what it can be like and how it could help you achieve your goals more easily.

Richard was very helpful in helping me understand what may be causing my recurrent nightmares. Even after the initial consultation on the phone and then in person just by talking about the issue and having his input I felt I could control them more effectively. The hypnotherapy was something that I hadn't tried before and I found relaxing and interesting. It has been helpful to go back over the recordings of the sessions again. Richard also had some very sensible suggestions for improving my work life balance and skills / tips to decrease the things that cause me stress to do with my work. Thank you very 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

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

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

Richard may have saved my life! I was smoking 60 cigarettes a day and had no other way to quit. There was not a single thing I wanted to do without smoking and not a single emotion that I didn't associate with smoking. Richard sat with me and talked about all the triggers and issues that I felt, he spent a long time before the session started. Then in the session he made me feel relaxed about everything and confident that we were going to beat the habit. When I came out of the the session, I didn't smoke, and I haven't for over 7 months now. I had tried everything else previously, and he is the only person who has made me feel truly like a non smoker. I hang out with smokers, I go to smokey venues, and I just don't need it myself. He is truly a miracle worker and I am so impressed and grateful for what he did. Thank you Richard, please keep changing people's lives for the better. read more

I saw Richard during the course of four sessions to help me get my weight under control without going on some magic diet. Richard is a lovely, friendly, and knowledgeable person, who made me feel at ease from the word go. The sessions where highly enjoyable and allowed me to explore the inner knowledge and strength that I already possessed but wasn't aware of, by being nudged in the right direction. I immediately saw a change in my eating habits which have resulted steady loss of around 1 kg per week (16 kg in total so far) without much change in what I eat. Through the sessions, I have learn to regain control of my eating and to allow myself to enjoy food again. If you are serious about losing weight and need someone who you can trust to help you, I can HIGHLY recommend hypnotherapy with Richard! Many thanks :)read more

Just some of the issues a hypnotist can treat are…

Dieting does not work. Counting calories, points or syns doesn’t work either. Changing your beliefs and attitudes about food does. Hypnotherapy could help you make those changes.

Patches, gum and willpower are useless. When it comes to quitting smoking there is no technique more effective than hypnotherapy. Take control of your thoughts

Phobias are learned behaviours that don’t improve your quality of life and they can be beaten. Regain control of your irrational fear by taking control of your thoughts and feelings.

Anxiety is limiting. It makes your world smaller. It is often due to an uncontrolled and overly active imagination focused on the negative. Use hypnosis to find a better alternative

Confidence is a skill that is learned. Some people learn it quickly and easily while others sometimes struggle. Like any skill though, you can practice and you can get better. The hypnotherapy service from Focused Hypnosis could help you to improve your confidence.

Insomnia can have a significant impact on all aspects of life in a very short space of time. Once your sleep pattern has been affected it can sometimes be hard to re-establish your sleep. Hypnotherapy is very similar to sleep and can make a big difference to insomnia.

The stress reaction is not a foregone conclusion. You have much more potential for control than you perhaps realise. Hypnotherapy can help you manage your stress by taking control or your thoughts and feelings regarding the situation you are facing.

Perhaps you are afraid of giving presentations at work. Maybe you have been asked to be best man at a wedding. Perhaps you fall apart in job interviews. Whatever the circumstance the process is the same. Plan for what you want. Hypnosis can help you to beat your fear of public speaking.

Sheffield is the UK’s eighth largest city and is known throughout the world as “The Steel City” thanks to our industrial heritage (which is now sadly all but gone). The people of Sheffield are not hard as steel though and sometimes need some help to deal with life’s issues.

In the city we have Sheffield Hallam which hosts 31,000 students and University and the University of Sheffield which is ranked the 13th best in the UK and 82nd in the world in the QS World University Rankings 2018.

This means that a large number of the people who seek help from Focused Hypnosis are students looking for help coping with the stresses and strains of student life.

A wooded scene in Sheffield

Just a few of Sheffield’s 2 million trees

Sheffield is also known for its greenery. It is claimed that there are 2 million trees in Sheffield with more trees per head of population than any other city in Europe. There are some that claim that Sheffield is the greenest city in Europe but Sheffield is actually only the 6th greenest city in the UK.

Sheffield is also on the edge of the Peak District which means that within 30 minutes most people in the city can find themselves in the wilds of the Peaks. This has lead to the city slowly being more commonly known as “The Outdoor City” rather than “The Steel City”.

The reason this is important is that trees and nature generally can reduce levels of stress, anxiety, depression and obesity. While our environment might mean that Sheffielders are less prone to these problems they still exist for some individuals.

That is where hypnotherapy can make a big difference. To read more about how you could benefit from hypnotherapy read the blog posts related to the issue you wish to tackle or read the issue specific page found in the menu at the top of this page.
