Clinical Hypnotherapy

Clinical Hypnotherapy

Clinical hypnotherapy is a technique to aid and support the healing and wellbeing of the mind and physical. Often when the mind is in an overwhelmed state, it is unable to process events, emotions and trauma. Which become stored in the mind out of order and sequence and can become over time, fears, behaviours, responses and even phobias. The mind is a vast library, full of amazing memories from childhood to the present day, some we store at the front of the mind and are able to access with ease, some in the mid memory and we have to think a little more to retrieve them and some are lost within the vaulted depths of the inner most recesses of the back of the mind itself. Sometimes when those memories become stored out of sequence they can begin to influence our conscious mind and our everyday thinking and responses.

Clinical Hypnotherapy can help and support the conscious mind to process these thoughts, memories and behaviours and to store them appropriately in the the correct order to be able to process and store them without them influencing the present. By working with the subconscious mind to bring balance and healing, allowing the conscious mind to be more at peace and calm in everyday processing and living. Helping to alleviate many conditions such as depression, stress, anxiety, OCD, trauma, and the breaking of habits. Utilising many approaches to help support and elicit change to your wellbeing and mindset.

Clinical hypnosis is a powerful therapeutic tool that can offer a range of benefits to individuals seeking to improve their mental and physical health. By utilising various strategies and techniques, hypnotherapy can help elicit positive changes in a person's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, leading to transformational outcomes.

One of the primary benefits of clinical hypnosis is its ability to induce deep relaxation, which can help reduce stress, anxiety, and other negative emotions. This state of relaxation can also help individuals access their subconscious mind, where they can work on transforming negative thought patterns and behaviors into positive ones.

Bringing about repetitive and habitual routines that consume daily life and living.  Clinical Hypnotherapy can help to release its hold and the emotions that are being consumed. To bring about a more balanced state of mind.

It can also be related to divorce, the loss of a job, retirement, children growing up and leaving home,  house moves, surgery, menopause, relationships, aging, and many other aspects of life’s transitions.

Addiction & Habits

Addictions and habits are usually stress relegated or emotionally based. Of course some habits are positive and to be encouraged, however when addictions and habits take over our daily life and begin to influence our life it can be the very time to seek support to make positive changes. By working with the cause and not the habit itself change can be elicited and achieved to make those changes, there are many addictions and habits that can blight your own life and by delving into the creation it can be refocused into a positive and releasing the boundary of being tied to its demand, for example habits such as nail biting, skin picking, pulling hair, social media scrolling. Clinical Hypnotherapy can help to find the emotional cause behind the habit that you are seeking to stop and with support and strategies designed uniquely for each individual to make positive changes.

Food Phobias

Food Phobias can really influence your life in every aspect, from work, family and social. Some food phobias are maybe from a incident involving a particular food or texture, for example a time when you choked on something or when eating something and there was a trauma that you now associate with that food. Equally each can be supported through Clinical Hypnotherapy to overcome and regain a more healthy outlook with the relationships with food. When the mind is retrained to accept the foods that are currently phobic to the senses, the emotions behind it are often revealed. Thus creating the best mindset for change and reprogramming. Clinical Hypnotherapy can help to find the emotional cause behind the phobia and bring a new outlook to food and its beneficial applications. Working with children and adults to help support and to being about change.

Sleep Disorders  

There is nothing more demoralising than not being able to get a good nights sleep. Whether it is initialising sleep on the first instance, staying asleep or feeling refreshed in the morning. Sleep in one of the basics of human needs and without a good nights sleep it can affect every part of our life. From work, school, relationships, concentration, vitality and energy. Getting a good nights sleep is the basis to wellbeing and mindset. There are many reasons for not being able to sleep well and Clinical Hypnotherapy can get to the issues behind the cause. Adjusting sleep hygiene and routines, and looking at the emotions behind and the root cause, designing a program bespoke for the client and supporting with strategies to bring about change and to be able to sleep better and more productively to support the systems of the body and mind.

Pain Management

Pain Management can surprisingly be well supported with Clinical Hypnotherapy, by giving you the control to the dials that control the pain surrounding you. Through hypnosis the mind can be shown how to lessen the connection to the pain receptors and adjust it to a more accommodating sensation which is manageable and allowing you to live a more comfortable and sustainable life. It will not take away the cause unless it is psychosomatic, but it will negotiate with the response of the physical to pain stimulus. A course of sessions to discover the cause if it is unknown or the reaction to known pain is always recommended and giving you the full control and power of your life back in your hands.

Childrens Clinic

Children’s clinic helps to support a wide ranging array of childhood issues, from bedwetting, sleep issues, social anxiety, friendship worries, confidence to tantrums, fears and phobias and separation anxiety. That may appear to hold no basis at the core but to be limiting the gift of childhood in one way or another. Every child deserves to live their best life full of fun and discovery, carefree and exploring the world around them without the stress and worry that many children in today’s society hold. Phiona Holds an Enhanced DBS to work with children and a natural ability to connect with children’s needs and issues to hear the voice of the young person and discover many ways in which they can be helped and supported.

School Related Issues

School can be a harrowing time for a young person, filled with pitfalls of not only overcoming the obstacles of growing up and maturing, but those of relationships and the stress and anxiety that schools holds. The complications of the needs to succeed, be a top performer, to be progressive and in some cases popular can place untold demands on a young persons life. Add on top of that the pressures of exams whether it is SAT’s, GCSE’s, A levels, or college exams, the pressure upon the young mind can be intense. Clinical Hypnotherapy can help support the young person at a most vulnerable time during their school years and especially if they find it a struggle academically or socially. Enabling a grounded and balanced viewpoint with strategies in place to support the young mind and being. Phiona Holds an Enhanced DBS and offers bespoke sessions to the young persons needs.

Exam Stress

Exam stress can take its toll on not only the mind but the body also, we face many exams in life, not only at school and college, but when learning to drive, in training, education, work placed exams, and performance related exams. This stress can place unnecessary stress upon the self and can bring about a dysreglation of the body and mind. With effects such as loss of sleep, lack of focus and concentration, loss of appetite, skin issues, weight problems, high anxiety, panic and forgetfulness. Manifesting as stress the body struggle to assimilate new information whilst it tries to regulate itself. Clinical Hypnotherapy can help to ease the stress and anxiety and elicit strategies for the exams themselves. With positive results resulting in a calmer outlook, a more relaxed mind and overcoming the fear or worry of exams.

Confidence & Self Esteem

Confidence and self esteem go hand in hand and are at opposites ends of the seesaw, whilst some appear to have confidence in bucket loads others seem to struggle to obtain a spoonful and with confidence we often find self esteem also, they are bookends to one another, as such being low in one with also be low in the other. Yet both can be boosted and maintained with Clinical Hypnotherapy and the mindset adjusted to be more reciprocal to a more positive outlook. Boosting not only self esteem and the issues it may bring along with it, but the confidence to do the things you wish to do and try. Living the life of your dreams instead of those that are unfulfilled and abandoned due to not feeling confident enough. Sometimes these are born in childhood or lack of self esteem may come from being in abusive relationship, being bullied at some point in your life or lacking in the nourishment of the self. No matte of the cause, Clinical Hypnosis can help reset the imbalance and recover the confidence of all you are.

Fears & Phobias

Fears and phobias can have a profound impact on our lives, often limiting our potential and causing unnecessary distress. Clinical hypnotherapy offers a powerful solution to overcome these debilitating emotions and regain control over our lives.

When we allow fear to dominate our thoughts and actions, we become trapped in a cycle of avoidance and anxiety. Simple tasks can feel overwhelming, and our world begins to shrink as we avoid situations that trigger our fears. Hypnotherapy provides a safe and effective method to break free from this cycle and reclaim our freedom.

Phobias, on the other hand, can be even more restrictive. They are intense and irrational fears that can lead to extreme avoidance behaviors. Whether it's a fear of flying, spiders, or public speaking, phobias can severely limit our opportunities and prevent us from fully enjoying life. Through hypnotherapy, we can reprogram our subconscious mind to eliminate these irrational fears and replace them with feelings of calm and confidence.


Weight Management

Weight Management is not always about losing weight, it can also be maintaining or gaining and living a healthy and positive outlook of the body itself. Weight management can help with confidence and self esteem as well as weight related problems. Managing weight with Clinical Hypnotherapy can be a life changing moment when those values and self opinions are balanced and put into perspective and changing your relationship with food and the self. With visualisation and a tailored planned package, you can begin to release the emotional weight that holds you to your currant image of the self. Wight management can be received either in a 1:1 session or group sessions. Phiona has taken additional training  to be able to provide her clients with this aspect of Clinical Hypnotherapy.

Eating Disorders

Eating Disorders is a very specialised and focused aspect of Clinical Hypnotherapy and should not be utilised in place of Medical advice or treatment. However it is an ideal accompaniment to work alongside traditional medicine and to help get to the root cause of the emotions behind the eating disorders. Whilst hypnosis will not cure an eating disorder itself it will  look at the issues connected to food, their origins and the emotions that are connected to those aspects, in time possibly even changing the relationship with food itself and even body image if this is of issue to a positive and healthy relationship. There is no time frame for this form of therapy as often the issues are deeply embedded and take time to surface and reveal themselves.

Smoking Cessation

Clinical Hynotherapy is often the last point of call when looking to give up smoking or vaping. Having tried many other forms of support such as medical or over the counter, giving up nicotine and the act of smoking itself can be very hard. Smoking is an addiction that has its routine and habits that are linked innately to it, such as socialising, work breaks, home life and even driving in the car. Hypnosis can help support this process and is often achieved within one session. The mind can be reset and the habit stubbed out once and for all.  The subconscious mind is a most powerful advocate when activated to support the cessation of smoking or vaping and a Hypnotherapist can work with you to achieve this and bring about the changes that you are seeking.


Clinical Hypnotherapy can help with relationships, in the understanding of the complexity and the narrative they hold. Hypnotherapy will not solve relationships or their issues, but will help you to look and understand your own emotions within them. Offering techniques and strategies you can apply to navigate the maze of emotions that can complicate and confuse your place within the relationship itself. Including family unions, platonic friendships, partnerships, sibling understanding, work relations, and group gatherings. One key aspect of relationships is harmony, which refers to the ability of individuals to work together in a positive and productive manner. When there is conflict in a relationship, it can create struggles and challenges that can be difficult to overcome. In some cases, clients may feel inferior or inadequate in their relationships, which can lead to feelings of frustration and dissatisfaction. However, through open and honest discussion, clients can work through these issues and develop stronger, more fulfilling relationships.

Performance Anxiety

Performance anxiety is a common issue that affects many individuals in the performing arts industry, including actors, singers, musicians, and dancers. This type of anxiety can be caused by a variety of factors, such as fear of failure, lack of confidence, stress, and mental blocks. Clinical hypnotherapy is a powerful tool that can be used to address performance anxiety in a safe and effective manner. By accessing the subconscious mind, hypnotherapy can help individuals overcome their fears and mental blocks, boost their confidence, and reduce stress levels. Through hypnosis, performers can learn to reframe their negative thoughts and replace them with positive affirmations, which can help them feel more relaxed and confident on stage. Hypnotherapy can also help performers develop coping mechanisms to deal with anxiety and stress, allowing them to perform at their best even under pressure.


Relaxation is a crucial component of clinical hypnotherapy, which aims to help individuals achieve a state of deep relaxation and calmness. Through mindfulness, meditation, and visualisation techniques, hypnotherapy can help support individuals who are experiencing stress, overwhelm, and dysfunction in their lives. By inducing a state of relaxation, hypnotherapy can help clients to reduce their stress levels, improve their mental clarity, and enhance their overall well-being. Through guided visualisation exercises, clients can learn to visualise positive outcomes and develop a more positive outlook on life. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues, hypnotherapy can help you to achieve a state of deep relaxation and calmness that can support your healing and recovery.

Health & Wellbeing

Health and wellbeing are essential components of a fulfilling life. Clinical hypnotherapy can help clients achieve a state of mindfillness, where they are fully present in the moment and aware of their thoughts and feelings. This awareness can help clients recognise when they are outside their window of tolerance, or the range of emotional experiences they can handle without becoming overwhelmed. The fight or flight response is a natural reaction to stress, but when it is triggered too often, it can lead to chronic stress and negatively impact health and wellbeing. Hypnotherapy can help individuals learn to manage their stress response and find ways to rest, relax, and slow down. Wellbeing is not just about physical health, but also encompasses mental and emotional health. Hypnotherapy can help clients take responsibility for their wellbeing and find ways to manage life pressures in a healthy and sustainable way. By prioritizing rest, relaxation, and self-care, clients can improve their overall health and wellbeing.

Past Life Regression

Past life regression is a fascinating concept within the realm of clinical hypnotherapy that explores the impact of previous lives on our present existence. By delving into our past lives through deep relaxation and guided imagery, we can gain valuable insights into our current life and understand the origins of certain traits and fears.

During a past life regression session, a trained hypnotherapist helps clients to access memories and experiences from their past lives. This process allows them to tap into their subconscious mind, where past life memories are believed to reside. By revisiting these memories, clients can gain a deeper understanding of their current life circumstances, relationships, and challenges.

Moreover, past life regression can be instrumental in addressing deep-rooted fears and phobias. Sometimes, fears or phobias that seem irrational in this lifetime may have their origins in past life traumas. By revisiting these traumas in a safe and controlled environment, individuals can release the emotional baggage associated with them, allowing for healing and personal growth.

Letting go of past traumas and negative experiences is an essential aspect of the past life regression process. Through this therapeutic technique, clients can finally release the emotional burdens they have been carrying, enabling them to move forward with a renewed sense of freedom and inner peace. By letting go,  can create space for positive transformation and embrace a more fulfilling and joyful life.

Hypno Gastric Band

Hypno gastric band is a revolutionary technique in the field of clinical hypnotherapy for weight loss. It involves using hypnotic suggestion to convince the subconscious mind that a gastric band has been fitted, resulting in reduced appetite and portion control.

This technique offers a safe and non-invasive alternative to traditional gastric band surgery. By harnessing the power of the subconscious mind, individuals can reclaim their lives and achieve their weight loss goals without resorting to extreme measures.

Unlike fad diets that often lead to short-term results, hypno gastric band focuses on promoting a healthy lifestyle and sustainable weight loss. It encourages individuals to adopt a balanced diet and make informed choices about their nutrition, leading to improved overall health and well-being.

Incorporating hypno gastric band into a weight loss journey also emphasizes the importance of regular exercise and fitness. By combining hypnotic suggestion with physical activity, individuals can achieve optimal results and maintain their weight loss in the long term.

With hypno gastric band, individuals can break free from the cycle of yo-yo dieting and achieve lasting weight loss. It is a holistic approach that addresses both the physical and psychological aspects of weight management, empowering individuals to lead healthier and happier lives.
