What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a form of complementary therapy that utilises the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. The process itself aims to alter our state of consciousness in a way that relaxes the conscious part of the mind while simultaneously stimulating and focussing the subconscious part. This heightened state of awareness is reached using skilled relaxation techniques. By unlocking  your subconscience we can explore deeper issues and help stimualate new ways of dealing with the subject at hand





Hypnotherapy For Stress & Anxiety Management 

You are not alone. I pride myself on creating a trusting rapport with my clients. We will take this therapy one step at a time at a pace that suits you. Everyone is different and I respect that. Hypnotherapy is a beautiful experience and a therapy that will assist with all stress related problems with full support provided. I work closely with national charity Anxiety UK, check out their wesite for information and support.


               Hypnotherapy - Smoking Cessation

Maybe you have smoked every day for years or you may only smoke socially or on special occasions. We all know how unhealthy it is to smoke cigarettes or rolled tobacco. Even E-cigs have many health risks! Together we can stop this habit now!! I offer two types of therapy, Hypnopuncture which includes 2 sessions of acupuncture or a four visit programme which includes daily text support and free post therapy consultation. Break the habit before it breaks you!

                    Hypnotherapy for Addictions

We can be addicted to just about anything we do! Hypnotherapy techniques can alter your attitude towards addictions such as gambling, sex, TV and gaming to name just a few of the issues I have dealt with recently.

               Hypnotherapy for Fears & Phobias

Nobody is born afraid of spiders, heights or even clowns! Nobody is born with a dislike of water, flying or even cotton wool! Together we can quash these anxious feelings through hypnosis and look ahead to a less stressful life and maybe achieve something which fear has been holding back!

                       Gastric Band Therapy

I offer a gastric band therapy session for only £65 but I also offer a 4 session package which costs £195. This will also include motivation, willpower, portion control, focus, snacking and other techniques. I have pewrsonally lost nearly 5 stones so can relate to my clients' issues.

                      Hypnotherapy for Habits

Nail biting or teeth grinding are just two examples of unwanted habits that we can extinguish together. There are many different techniques of hypnotherapy which I will investigate on your behalf to achieve a positive outcome. Sometimes just one session can be enough as we teach the subconciuos mind redirection strategies.

                             Past Life Regression

Who were you in a past life? This hypnosis technique allows you to recover memories from your past, often having outstanding and intersting results.






Hypnopuncture is a therapy package that combines Hypnotherapy and Acupuncture for stopping smoking in the heart of York.


I have now joined forces with Tiziana of York Traditional Acupuncture and have decided to offer a smoking cessation package which will also help people with their e-cig addiction. Both of us are highly experienced in the treatment of smoking cessation.

Acupuncture and Hypnotherapy for stopping smoking work in synergy and one therapy enhances the effects of the other. Acupuncture works mainly on the body and on the physical addiction to smoking, helping the body to make more of its own beta-endorphins (the natural hormones that make you feel good), reducing tobacco cravings, calming the nervous system, helping the body to detoxify itself, and strengthening the lungs and the immune system.

Hypnotherapy works on the mind by tapping into your subconscious and getting you to think differently about quitting. Using various techniques, you will feel relaxed at all times as positive suggestions are skilfully relayed to you. Clients will also be taught the power of self – hypnosis which can be utilised for other issues too.

By combining the two therapies, David and I provide a healing system in York that is powerful, deep, and effective and which targets both the physical and psychological aspects of smoking addiction.

The therapy package includes two sessions with myself and two with David, and its total cost is £195.00. 

                   Self Hypnosis Group Therapy
