Where the condition is a medical one, I will ask if a diagnosis has been sought and obtained by a medical practitioner, prior to any sessions.  This will be in the form of written permission from your medical practitioner


Physical conditions which can be improved with hypnotherapy/NLP


  • Eczema

  • Pain management

  • Psoriasis

  • Insomnia

  • Irritable bowel syndrome

  • Migraines

  • Weight Management


The above are often a result of underlying stress or anxiety and may result in a ‘pattern’ in your symptoms. If this is the case, try and note when this happens so we can discover if there are any triggers


Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is routinely treated with hypnosis and is recommended as a treatment by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). Evidence shows that over 60% of sufferers show a significant improvement in their symptoms.


Skin Conditions                

Skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis may respond well to hypnosis. Like many chronic conditions, skin problems can be triggered by stress. 


Weight Problems        

Sustainable, healthy weight loss will need to be achieved over a suitable time period. Many people gain weight through poor eating habits and emotional eating. Hypnotherapy can help you gain insight into your behaviors and choices and help with changing your emotional responses that could lead to overeating, binge eating, or other unhelpful self- medicating behaviors.



Sleep Problems

Poor sleep can be caused by a number of factors including stress, anxiety, menopause, unhelpful behaviors, and environmental factors. 


Pain Management                

Hypnotherapy is often an effective therapy for people living with chronic, diagnosed pain. It has also been used to support those who need to manage their level of discomfort during medical treatment, after surgery or other procedures. Hypnosis has been used throughout history as a form of anesthesia and many people today, undergo surgery and dental work using hypnosis as anesthetic.     



The causes of headaches and migraines are varied, from stress and tension to hormonal changes. It is essential that if you have persistent headaches, you should consult with your GP before seeking an appointment with me, not to worry you, but to be safe 



Conditions which are not suited and should not be treated with Hypnosis:        

There are a few medical conditions where hypnosis is considered unsuitable:    

  • Epilepsy that is not under control with medication - written medical consent will be required

  • Severe mental health problems (psychosis) or learning disabilities where cooperation is difficult

  • Clients under the influence of alcohol or drugs where concentration is impaired

  • Hypnosis is considered inappropriate for very young children (U5) where there is a reduced attention span
