Hypnotherapy is essentially a state of deep relaxation where the conscious, controlling mind takes a rest, allowing for the subconscious mind to take the lead and be more receptive to accepting new and positive, and maybe even life changing, ideas.

Hypnotherapy can be very effective for the following:

  • Increasing confidence
  • Smoking cessation
  • Weight management
  • Pain management
  • Reducing fears
  • Stress management
  • Changing unwanted behaviour
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Worries during pregnancy
  • Enhancing sports performance
  • Motivation...


During a session of hypnotherapy you will firstly be encouraged to relax through what is called an 'induction script'; a gentle slow paced invitation for you to switch off your conscious mind and let all of your daily worries drift away. This will then be followed by the 'suggestion' part of the therapy which is made up of positive and beneficial ideas in tune with the emotions and behaviours that you wish to change, and which have been discussed at the outset of working together. The session finishes with a 'wake-up' element which sets you back on course for continuing with your day.


Unlike stage hypnotism, you are in full control throughout the process and likely to be aware of what is going on around you.  You are not 'knocked out' but will hopefully be relaxed enough to take the time you need to listen and absorb all the new and positive ideas that are available to you.

You can never be made to say, or do, anything you do not want to and if I, or anyone else, were to make suggestions that you did not morally approve of, you would simply disregard them.  You will never give away any secrets or be made to act in a ridiculous way.  You are always in control but at the same time you are also very deeply relaxed. 

I offer a free 30 minute consultation, in person or by phone, during which we will look together at what you want to change in order to help you to improve your life, and we then decide together how we are going to achieve that. You will always be treated as an individual and the approach that I use will be tailored to suit your needs and issues.


Reflections from a client:

I found Nicky on www.hypnotherapist-directory.org.uk as I was struggling with direction in life and also felt as if I had a few mental demons that needed sorted out and were holding me back in life. I talked to a few other therapists over the phone as well, but Nicky was the quickest to reply..... so I decided I would stick with her and see how it goes. I must say I am extremely pleased with how things turned out. 
Nicky first of all is a lovely women, and I found it very easy to talk and open up to her about all the things on my mind. She was very professional during our sessions, yet still very personable, and I could tell early on she knew what she was doing so I felt reassured that I wasn't wasting my time. During the first session I mostly talked whilst Nicky paid close attention, making notes, and by the end she made some very acute observations which really penetrated the surface and struck me on a deeper level. In the second session we talked some more before proceeding onto some visualisation exercises, which were incredibly powerful and revealing to me, and finally we commenced hypnotherapy. Nicky had prepared this beautiful and personally tailored script (which she later sent to me as part of the session - amazing!) which she read out whilst I entered this semi-conscious state. It was an incredible experience and clearly worked as afterwords I felt incredible. I will be continuing to listen to the recording daily for a long time to come. 
Can't thank her or recommend her enough.

Past Life Regression

For those interested in the possibility of past lives, I firstly help to create a feeling of relaxation before encouraging clients to look back at key times in their childhood. They are then invited to look beyond this current life to see if there is anything for them to learn, or be aware of that may have happened in a previous existence.

From experience of using this approach, clients have told me that they feel very relaxed, safe and interested in what has come to mind for them, both in terms of childhood memories and of a time before that. 

As a therapist, my role is to facilitate this experience, not to prove or disprove the existence of a past life. I do not offer suggestions or try to uncover facts that can necessarily be substantiated. I work only to create a relaxing space so clients can explore past life possibilities for themselves.
