The most successful form of Hypnotherapy available

Fast, Effective, Empowering.

The are two main types of Hypnotherapy that I practice:

  1. Suggestion Therapy (sometimes called 'Clinical Hypnosis'), and
  2. Hypnoanalysis

Suggestion Therapy:

Suggestion Therapy is 'normal' hypnotherapy. When you hear the term 'hypnotherapy' used in the media, they are (most often) referring to this type of therapy. Basically, you will be relaxed into a lovely, calm light hypnotic state (where you will be wide awake and fully in control - but nice and relaxed) and you will be given suggestions that will effect your behaviour/feelings once you are out of the hypnotic state - hence the term 'post-hypnotic suggestion'.

The type of suggestion given will depend on the symptom you are wanting help with. If you are stopping smoking, a typical suggestion would be 'you will feel a huge sense of pride and pleasure now you are a non smoker' or 'you will find it easy to live your life as a non smoker'. Note that ALL suggestions given will be completely positive, and worded very carefull in order to get the very best results. This type of therapy session is ideal for: smokers wishing to quit, a person suffering from pre-test nerves, someone wanting help with their driving test, or help with pain control - particularly for childbirth.

Suggestion therapy can be very effective, but the results are only temporary - hence it is particularly useful when short-term benefits are needed(see above).

Suggestion therapy only requires one, or maybe two sessions.


Hypnoanalysis is in my opinion the single most effective form of Hypnotherapy available today, for the resolution of anxiety, depression, phobias, fears, eating disorders and other psychological and emotional problems/symptoms. This form of hypnotherapy can TOTALLY RESOLVE the CAUSE of unconscious anxieties - leaving the sufferer free of their symptoms! Hypnoanalysis usually takes between 6-12 weekly sessions, lasting about 45 minutes to an hour each session.

It is a very 'natural' form of therapy, its one that utilises the natural therapeutic process that everybody has within themselves - and this is EXACTLY what 'Pure Hypno-Analysis' does: it allows the person to quickly and easily resolve the bottled up emotions that were causing the symptoms, and the symptoms completely disappear, for good. Does that sound too good to be true? Does that sound unbelievable? Ask yourself this: look back to when you were a teenager, and to when your first relationship ended - the first time you were 'dumped' by a boyfriend or girlfriend.Remember how devastated you felt? Remember how depressed/angry/sad/lonely you felt? You may even have gone 'the whole hog' and written some poetry about it! You probably felt that life just wasn't worth living, and that life was never going to be the same again. You don't feel like that now though, do you?

Looking back on that incident 20 years ago, you don't feel the same about it now, do you? You don't STILL feel sad/depressed/angry/alone about the break up. Even if you really sit back and think about it, try and remember it all, in all its glory, you CAN NOT and WILL NOT feel those horrible feelings now - because you are over it. You have dealt with it, you have grieved for it, you have resolved it, and it will NEVER bother you again. Something that was traumatic, emotional, frightening, sad, painful etc doesn't bother you AT ALL anymore, because you have resolved it.

Much like the analogy above of the grieving process in respect of the death of a loved one, you have resolved the bulk of the emotion, and are able to get on with your life.

What would have happened though, if, for some reason, you couldn't or weren't able to grieve about your teenage relationship ending? Let's say it was SO emotional, that you simply couldn't face up to it, and you bottled it all up.. (this is called 'repression' - a repression occurs when the emotion is so strong that the persons psyche completely 'hides it' from their consciousness: it is not 'forgotten' like the way we sometimes forget things, it is totally hidden from consciousness - repressed) All those emotions would still be with you now, buried in the back of your mind, causing you untold grief and anxiety.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could create a safe, caring, trusting, confidential relationship with a me as your therapist, and slowly release those bottled up emotions? So how do we get to that point?

Resolving emotional conflicts

The answer is, of course, that we don't have to FIND those emotions (we don't have to find them when getting over the death of a loved-one.. we don't have to find them when getting over the breakdown in a relationship) those emotions WILL COME TO THE SURFACE BY THEMSELVES - if the correct therapeutic relationship is created, AND the therapist ALLOWS the clients Natural Therapeutic Process to work - rather than telling the client what they believe is wrong, and what they believe the client should do, in order to be freed from their symptoms.

So, every person that has a psychological or emotional symptom has some bottled up emotions that are causing those symptoms. To naturally and completely get rid of those symptoms we must allow those 'repressed' emotions to come to the surface so we can resolve them. So the only truly effective therapy is one that allows those 'bottled-up/repressed' emotions - how many therapies actually do that?

The answer to that question (as far as we can tell) is: just one - 'Hypnoanalysis'

To understand why the above is the case, we must look at what other types of therapy actually do

A closer look at other therapies, and how they work.

Let's take a fairly simple case of 'social phobia' (sometimes known as social anxiety. Social phobia is caused by bottled-up/repressed feelings of shame and guilt. The sufferer feels 'judged' by other people, and avoids places and situations where they might feel 'on the spot' or embarrassed - particularly in public. If the social phobia sufferer went for traditional counselling, the two of them would probably discuss the situations and experiences that were 'triggering off' the phobia (relationship/stress/work/confidence etc) The sufferer might feel a bit better, and feel a but more in control, BUT they would still have their phobia and it would still be having a profound effect upon their life. If the sufferer went for psychotherapy, they would probably receive a more in-depth version of the counselling above. Without getting to the bottled-up CAUSE of the phobia though, the sufferer can only obtain a limited resolution.

If the sufferer went for some CBT, they would probably feel more control of their life, and find life easier. but the phobia would still be there, affecting their life

If the sufferer went for normal hypnotherapy (sometimes called 'clinical' or 'suggestion') they would have one or two sessions and feel quite a lot better, BUT the emotion would find another way out, and the symptoms would soon likely return with a vengeance!

If, however, the sufferer went for a course of 'Hypno Analysis', they would very likely bring to the surface ALL the repressed/bottled-up emotions that were causing the phobia, freeing them from the symptoms completely and permanently.

Please don't think I am saying that these other forms of therapy aren't successful, because they are. They are all able to help people to change their lives - when they are used in the correct setting, for the right sort of problem. You wouldn't go to a 'grief counsellor' for help with a phobia. you wouldn't go to an NLP practitioner if you were contemplating suicide. you wouldn't go for four years of psychotherapy if you were simply frightened of flying! If your problems or symptoms in life are caused by bottled-up/repressed emotions, then there is no better therapy to help resolve them, than Hypnoanalysis and I have in fact taken an NLP Master Practionioner through the Hypno-Analysis proces because their own therapy would not resolve the root cause of the symptoms.

So how does Hypnoanalysis work?

Hypnoanalysis simply creates a safe, trusting and confidential environment where the natural therapeutic process can work, ALLOWING the client to slowly bring all the bottled up emotions to the surface. It doesn't rely on 'therapist insight', 'fishing techniques', regression techniques or any other 'invasive' techniques in order to work effectively. Create the right relationship, show the client how to utilise the natural therapeutic process, and in six to twelve sessions the bottled-up emotions will usually be resolved.

Over a period of about 6-12 weekly 45 minute to an hour-long sessions the client is gently relaxed into a very light hypnotic state (they are wide-awake, fully in control, but very relaxed) and whilst is this relaxed state, asked to verbalise recollections that spring into their mind. This free-association of experiences very quickly allows the client's subconscious mind to 'push to the surface' experiences that relate to the 'bottled up emotion' ... experiences keep on coming into mind and they keep on linking back to the 'trauma' (the bottled-up emotion) until all the emotion is released)

Other types of hypnotherapy (and other therapies) attempt to use the technique of 'free association' but (as far as I know) do not use it in its 'purest' form as taught within the IAPH. This is because UNLIKE many other therapies, Hypnoanalysis DOES NOT RELY on insight or intellect - in other words it doesn't rely on what the therapist (or the client) deems is important / significant.

So in Summary:

Hypnoanalysis has been in a constant state of development since 1974, and - I believe - is the most effective form of therapy.

Most other forms/types of therapy don't get to the underlying CAUSE of the problem (the unconscious causes of the anxiety/symptoms) and totally resolve them..... what they do is to try and 'mask' the symptom somehow - like putting a plaster over it . Hypnoanalysis offers a complete and permanent resolution

This Hypno-Analysis therapy - unlike psycho-analysis, counselling, and many of the psychotherapies, - does not rely on 'therapist insight'..... it's NOT about the therapist telling you what they THINK is the cause of the problem, or what their INTERPRETATION of the problem is, or about them being clever enough to guess what is going on in the back of someone else's brain..... it is about simply allowing the client to bring-up what is important and resolve it. completely and permanently

Hypnoanalysis usually only takes 6-12 sessions. Very occassionally, some people do require a couple more sessions if they are very dissociative, ie, they are very disconnected from the experiences and emotions and it's less easy for them to get in touch with things that are coming up for them.

The next Step?

Quite often you have had a fear or a phobia or lacked confidence for so long that its been normalised - "I have always had it, its just me and the way I am". But you were not born with the phobia or with other issues, it they were "acquired" as you went through your life, probably as a child. Just because you may have always suffered with these symptoms does not mean you have to continue suffering with them.
