Millions of people around the world suffer from many forms of embarrassing habits like nail biting or teeth grinding to more serious addictions such as drugs, alcohol or gambling. People typically develop an addiction or a habit in the first instance as a way to deal with a difficult or unpleasant emotion or feeling. Because these emotions and feelings reside in the subconscious part of your mind Hypnotherapy is a very effective way of helping you change these behaviours. Using hypnosis and psycho-analysis techniques including CBT, Gestalt and Parts Therapy we are able to find and make sense of the root cause of the problem and then help you make whatever changes you need to make to starting living a better life, the life where you have both choice and control.

Recognising, understanding and then dealing with the reasons behind the habit or addiction can change your life. Whether it’s to do with relationships, your health and well-being, your career, your family life or your finances, hypnotherapy can make a huge different.
