Hypnotherapy

What would you like to change in your life? Do you struggle with weight loss? Are cigarettes keeping you captive? Does Stress threaten your health and happiness? Is success a thing that others have, but not you? Hypnosis may be the answer. Utilising the power of your subconscious mind will allow you to make changes that normally high achievers and the Elites only do. There is no secret; they have no higher IQ to help them. What they do have is a thought process that allows them to reach each goal they set. Hypnotherapy can set the chains that hold you free. It can help you to achieve that state of mind that will allow your true potential to flourish. After that, nothing is impossible!

A Different Type of Hypnosis

Where classical hypnosis is authoritative and direct and often encounters resistance in the client, the Ericksonian approach is permissive, accommodating and indirect. Because the induction takes place during a normal conversation, Ericksonian hypnosis is often known as Covert or Conversational Hypnosis. Affording greater trust, a more relaxed environment for both client and therapist and is favoured within Access Health.

BIO-FEEDBACK


Bio-feedback is where Science Fiction meets Therapy. In normal therapy, the Therapist would watch for visual signs and ask some questions to ascertain if the treatment was working or the correct levels of trance had been gained before suggestions could be given. The technique described can be very hit or miss and is not a skill easily learned. Getting it wrong would mean a limited result which is detrimental to the client. Utilising Bio-feedback equipment that measures the electrical signals passing through the body (Similar to an ECG but without all the wires!) the grey area where the client is either too deep (Asleep) or not deep enough, can be seen and measured on a screen, ensuring that the session is maximised in its potential to achieve the aim. It is extremely useful in Speaking Therapy as it identifies immediate responses and stress levels continually. The equipment is noninvasive and records the session throughout, which you can take with you as a printout to impress friends after you leave.

Specialist: HYPNO-BAND WEIGHT LOSS SYSTEM ® LICENSED PRACTITIONER Access Health

Hypno-band weight loss
For those that have tried everything! The Hypno-Band Weight Loss System tm is the latest innovation in hypnotherapy for weight loss. Although gastric band hypnosis has been available for many years, it did not create a great stir amongst therapists or clients. This was primarily due to the results being short-term and inconsistent. Recently the UK Government has been making loud noises about the numbers of obese people in the UK and the need to educate people on good and healthy eating habits.

Which is all well and good, but the options open to those clinically obese people when it comes to losing weight are limited. Gastric band surgery has been popularised by celebrities and magazines but has several downsides. Costs aside, gastric band surgery has been responsible for a spate of fatalities and although deemed a “safe” procedure in itself, by the British Medical Council.
It is becoming a “last gasp” measure, and many are put off by the prospect of MRSA and other problems within the Hospital environment. When developing the Hypno-Band system, we realised that merely treating the symptoms of obesity was not enough. Clients had to understand the reason why over-eating was a problem for them. Combining traditional hypnotherapy weight loss techniques with CBT type analysis, then using gastric band imagery and sound effects, we developed and tested the Hypno-Band system.

To date, results worldwide have been excellent. Gastric Band hypnosis has certainly caught the attention of both the press and the public, and our system has made people sit up and take notice. Already we are inundated with inquiries from all over the world. We feel a lot of work has gone into developing a system that is user-friendly, and more to the point is effective. The Hypno-Band is a highly visible trademark with a network of over 1500 Licensed Practitioners in 44 countries.
Now the Hypno-Band program has arrived things are looking decidedly slimmer.

Quit Smoking / Vaping!



No matter how long you have been a smoker, you can quit! Smoking is a mental habit, not a physical need! Nicotine replacement therapies, pills, e-cigarettes, and chewing gum may give you another method to satisfy your craving for nicotine, but they do little to address the smoker’s lifestyle, emotional cravings or habitual responses. To successfully stop smoking, you need to lose the desire. With hypnosis, you can replace your daily smoking routine with healthier behaviours, neutralize the triggers and change your smoking responses so that you would prefer to do something else instead. You can become the “comfortable non-smoker" that you were before you lit that first cigarette, no matter what the age was. What are you waiting for? Contact Access Health

.Reduce Stress & Anxiety

A stressed man
Part of a specialised program.
Most people know that prolonged stress wreaks havoc on your body and can even cause degeneration in some areas of the brain. What may be surprising to know, is that short bursts of moderate stress are good for you! But when stress occurs too frequently or remains for extended periods of time, it is devastating to your health, mental functioning, and performance. Learn how to release stress and remain calm under pressure. We can help you to identify your emotional and environmental stressors and give you practical tools to manage them in everyday situations. You can remain calm, self-assured and in control, skilfully breezing through life’s ups and downs.
Check out the Quick and Easy Guide to Stress Management.

From Stressed To Best Course Program


One size does not fit all! In the same circumstances, one person may be relaxed and happy while another becomes stressed. One person may become quiet and sullen while under stress, while another may lash out. Although the physical responses to stress are the same for everyone, the mental, emotional and behavioural responses are quite different. Therefore, changing from a state of stress to a state of relaxation requires an approach as individual as your personality.



It is not surprising that prolonged exposure to stress eventually will manifest into physical ailments. Some are more noticeable than others, a prime example of this is frequently seen on the biggest organ of the body! No, not the Liver, but the Skin! (about 20 square feet of it in an average adult). The Rash, Dermatitis, Eczema, discolouration, etc. Or it can have a detrimental effect on one of the most important and protective elements of the body, such as the Immune System or the Endocrine (Hormonal) System, which is also responsible for emotional stability.


Just as you have a preference for being right or left handed, you have natural, “hard-wired” preferences for how you engage in the world. You will discover your inborn strengths and how to access them. You will learn to recognize when you are moving into a stressed or un-resourceful state and have a plan of action to move out of it quickly. By understanding the in-born preferences of yourself and others, you gain insight and flexibility. You will have the ability to arrest the progression of stress and move quickly back into your most resourceful state.

Overcome PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)


Do you feel as if you are reliving past trauma through a series of horrifying memories? PTSD often goes unrecognized, yet its devastating effects can lead to serious physical, emotional and mental complications. Symptoms include becoming struck with fear even in safe surroundings. Lingering fears and memories can hinder your ability to concentrate. Recurring nightmares or sleeplessness. Terrifying flashbacks. PTSD triggers uncontrollable emotions that interfere with relationships, lead to depression, and destroy lives. Sufferers often feel isolated and out of alignment with the rest of the world. There is help available, Hypnosis and other therapies can access the subconscious and help you reconcile traumatic experiences of the past. With hypnosis and other means, we can work with the PTSD patterns in your subconscious mind gently and easily assisting you to cope with the past. The process can be quite quick, and effective depending on the level of trauma experienced. Freedom from the grip of fear is true liberation in the highest sense. Regain your power. You can be free to live an extraordinary life filled with happiness and adventure, as you deserve.
In recent years PTSD has grown to be known as a "War" related problem, however, as we are all individuals and capable of reacting and reliving all memories, PTSD has not been acknowledged as highly as it should be in our society. All uniformed services, both domestic and other will have been susceptible to PTSD and will have a varying degree of symptoms. However, they may not have the support or wish the attention while continuing to serve the community. That is why Access Health has made treatment Cost Free for all frontline uniformed service personnel and begun building a network of like-minded therapists across the country that are willing to give the time, without charge for the health of those that serve us.

Overcome Your Phobia

Do you live in dread that a phobia will reveal itself in an embarrassing situation? Yes, you know it’s irrational, but being confronted with your phobia (be it the fear of spiders, public toilets, elevators, flying, clowns, or commitment) sends you into a panic racing down your spine! You may have made light of it, and maybe even a couple of people have teased you about it, but the fear is very real. Maybe you have adjusted your life around it by taking long flights of stairs instead of elevators, staying out of the garden to avoid creepy crawlies or driving long distances to avoid flying, but isn’t it exhausting? No one is born with a phobia. You developed it through a series of experiences. By adjusting the fight, flight or freeze reaction to any given situation we help you to re-process and de-activate your phobic triggers. Imagine yourself relaxing with a good book while flying or simply walking up to a spider and admiring his beautiful web. Set yourself free with hypnosis, because life is too short to live in fear! A specially designed program for The Fear Of Flying is Available on request.

Drive Away Negativity

Do you have that little voice in your head that distrusts anything new? If someone is nice to you, do you look for an ulterior motive? Do you see too many reasons why your efforts go unrecognised? Do you believe that you will fail, and adopt a why bother attitude? You are only as successful as your beliefs will allow. Hypnosis can help you to increase your perspective, use the greater resources of your mind and live a life filled with hope, gratitude and real possibilities.

Manage Anger


Everyone gets angry! It’s a very natural emotion. But if you find yourself getting angry often, or intensely, then perhaps, (and please don’t get upset and take this personally), you may need some help controlling yourself. Anger is an expression of the sympathetic nervous system (Yes! It's a Physiological response!!). Hypnosis can give you the means to adjust the reaction and provide the self-control you need to remain calm and resourceful even during confrontations. The past mistakes are not who you are, they are the vehicle that has brought you to the present, but you can decide the future. Let hypnosis help you process and express anger more effectively. Don’t boil over when a situation in life becomes difficult. You can learn to be the one who stays cool and takes control of the situation even when others lose it.

Bereavement

A broken heart does mend. Feeling overwhelming waves of sorrow is normal after a traumatic loss, but if the pain does not diminish with time, moving forward with your life may seem impossible. Processing grief can feel torturous and confusing. When grief clouds your mind, adjustment feels frightening, and the path to recovery appears to be concealed from you. You do have the courage to continue. Let hypnosis soothe the ache in your heart, open your mind to a higher understanding and bring closure. It is possible to accept, forgive, let go and live the full and happy life you not only deserve, but those we have lost would want for us.

Releasing the Past


Do old resentments intrude into your present? Have you ever noticed that it is usually the negative memories that seem to always creep into your consciousness robbing you of the life you are living now? Hypnosis can help you to release them. Melt the clouds of old unresolved experiences and feel the true richness of your life. The rest of your life is waiting for you!

Guilt and Forgiveness

Is there a wall of shame, guilt or resentment standing between you and your relationships? Do you replay painful scenarios in your mind? Do past experiences prevent you from trusting? Let yourself and others off the hook! The truth is, you are not upset for the reason you think. With hypnosis, you can discover and release old stuck feelings and replace them with insight, understanding and emotional flow. Forgive yourself and others and be free to love yourself and others, trust and grow.

Public Speaking and Performance

Of all fears, surveys show public speaking to be number one on more people’s list than any other. Even Performers and Royalty occasionally become frozen by stage fright. The ability to speak before groups of people is one of the most important career skills you can develop. If you find yourself having difficulty voicing up at meetings or giving presentations, hypnosis can help you to remain calm and present. By learning a few simple techniques that you can use anytime and anywhere, you can actually enjoy your time in the spotlight.

Gain Confidence

Do you unknowingly sabotage your success? Are you resigned to believing that don’t have what it takes to get what you want? Do you begin by setting an expectation of failure? Don’t let limiting beliefs become a “self-fulfilling prophecy.” You already have almost everything it takes to reach your dreams. Hypnosis can illuminate strengths you never knew you had and helped you to get the confidence you need to become your ideal self.

Get Rid of Bad Habits

Nail biting, teeth grinding, skin picking, hair pulling, gum popping, and other little tics and habits make you appear nervous, weak or immature to others. Annoying habits can also take a toll on your appearance and even your health! Your attractiveness and even the advancement of your career can be affected by the negative image of these nervous habits. Don’t let compulsive unconscious habits control you. Hypnosis can help you to disengage the reflex, and you can present a cool, calm, confident, in control image of yourself to the world!

Addiction

Whether it is alcohol, prescription pills or street narcotics, drugs eventually fail you. Where they once may have helped you cope with life, soon they become your biggest problem.

Release yourself from dependence. Set your mind free and get control of your life. You owe it to yourself and those you love.

Procrastination

Does your “to do list” keep getting longer and longer, while you peruse every inch of a social media platform? Do you have a vision, but never get past the dreaming stage? Do you keep saying, “tomorrow” and then put it off again? What bothers you most? Is it all the little things that have built up to become an obstacle? That house full of unfinished projects? Or a big project you’re never quite ready to tackle? Is it all piling up? Do you live in chaos? Are you followed by a nagging cloud of inadequacy? You can shift yourself into a joyful state of productivity with just a few simple adjustments. Hypnosis can give you the nudge you need to easily change your attitude from “I’ll do it later” to “Let’s get started!” Do yourself a favour. Take the first step to getting things done. Call us now!…..Yes, now!
