Pain Management.

Eliminate or manage pain hypnosis. Interventions consistently produce significant decreases in pain associated with a variety of chronic-pain problems. Also, hypnosis was generally found to be more effective than non-hypnotic interventions such as attention, physical therapy, and education. Most of the hypnosis interventions for chronic pain will include instructions in self-hypnosis. The number of sessions you'll need will depend on your individual circumstances, however, hypnosis for pain is usually delivered between 1 and 4 sessions. I will make recordings for you to use at home so you can continue to employ hypnosis techniques.

Autoimmune wellbeing

Autoimmune disorders are very often caused and worsened by our social environment, our physical, emotional, mental well-being, and choice of lifestyle. There is exciting Clinical Evidence that Hypnotherapy can really help. I have had my own challenges with autoimmune disorders I had Uveitis for many years leading to a temporary loss of sight in one eye and I've lived with Hidradenitus Suppurativa since I was about 12. The medication I was prescribed caused symptoms to offen worsen, the side effects led to tolerance, a need for more medication and often a worsening of symptoms. I had to step up and took my health into my own hands (healer heal thyself). I weaned myself off the medication and have hugely benefited from using hypnosis and hypnotherapy. I am now focusing my work to help clients with dysfunctional immune systems, and have helped many clients over the year's with chronic fatigue, pain and other invisible conditions. Hypnosis made a huge difference in my life, It's a game changer, really life changing and so freeing.

 A few weeks ago now I had a course of hypnotherapy with Amanda Joy Harrison to help me take control of my eating habits and lose some weight. Today I hit the 1 stone weight loss milestone and for the first time ever when trying to lose weight (especially after about 8 weeks) I am not starving hungry all the time. I am not obsessed with food. And I genuinely feel I could sustain my new eating habits long term. I just don't want to eat unhealthy things anymore."
