Can Hypnotherapy Help Me Break Bad Habits?

Can Hypnotherapy Help Me Break Bad Habits?

When we first learn to do something new, it takes a while for these new-found skills to become second nature. Taking driving, for example, most of us take many months of practice before we become competent, some can even take years before passing a driving test.

Simpler things, such as brushing our teeth become a habit far more easily, despite this, all behaviours follow the same neurological patterns.
Every habit will start with a trigger or cue, which tells the brain to go into ‘autopilot’ mode, which then allows the behaviour to take place, then follows the perceived reward.

Habits are in effect part of a neurological program, and the more the program runs, the more habitual our actions become.

It, of course then, makes sense that we need to break this cycle at a neurological level and hypnotherapy is a great way of helping facilitate this.

Let me help you to regain control?.

There can be any number of reasons why we have adopted a bad habit, and some can be quite costly to continue.

Hypnotherapy will help you and empower you, and through positive suggestion we will help bring about positive change, sometimes this can occur in just a single session, although this will not always be the case.

We can look at what the triggers are and work to reverse the impact of these, whatever they maybe.

Some habits can be more complex than others, regardless of their complexity, together we can instil new more positive ways of thinking and acting.

Typically, 1-5 sessions will be required to successfully resolve an unwanted habit.

Why choose me to help?

Around 1% of UK Hypnotherapists complete an advanced hypnotherapy qualification and whilst I am unsure of the actual numbers within each professional body, and even less so overseas, I know that this is the case with the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council and within my membership of the General Hypnotherapy Register. I have made the effort and investment required to complete this next phase of my professional development and can call myself an Advanced Practitioner.

In studying for my Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (NQF 6), I was fortunate enough to study with ex-Sheffield Hallam University lecturer Doctor Paul Peace, Philosophy (PHD), Psychology, and Karen Bartle who holds a master’s degree in Health/Medical Psychology.

Throughout my career as a Hypnotherapist, I have been fortunate to study with people whom I consider to be some of the best in the business and in addition to studying with Karen and Paul, I trained with Matthew Ferguson and he has worked with Olympic athletes, Doctors and Psychiatrists to name but a few professions and he has over 25 years’ experience of Hypnosis and Clinical Hypnotherapy, and he also shared some fantastic knowledge and expertise with me.

I was also, fortunate enough to study with Nick Davies who created the BLAST Technique®

The studying I completed with Nick, sees me able to resolve negative memories through eye movement, and this is one of the most valuable skills I possess. I have studied numerous times with him and there are less than 50 Advanced BLAST Technique practitioner® in the world (3/2/21), of which I am one.

In short, I have an Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, I am a Master Practitioner of Neuro-linguistic programming, a skilled eye movement therapist, a qualified Advanced BLAST Technique practitioner®, as well as also being a Motivation Therapist and Coach. I have helped thousands of people and I am confident that my help will positively make a difference, however, rather take my word for this, I would encourage you to read the reviews left by others, you can do this by clicking the link below.


So, if you are looking for a skilled hypnotherapist, with a wealth of experience in helping people to excel in their chosen discipline or field, then I recommend you get in touch, knowing that I can help wherever in the world you might be.
