Conditions Treated

Hypnotherapy can be used to treat a whole range of thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behaviours effectively and relatively quickly. If the condition is not listed, please feel free to discuss your condition. Many patients have never considered their condition to be treatable using a hypnotherapy treatment or to consider their condition to have a stress or anxiety connection. If you are in doubt, it is advisable to consult with your GP to deal with any underlying physiological issues.

Several patients enter a course of hypnotherapy already taking medication such as anti-depressants, tranquillizers or beta-blockers to deal with their symptoms. They may find that a psychological or emotional cause of the condition however, is still creating symptoms and affecting the quality of their life.
