How Hypnotherapy in Brighton Can Help Break a Smoking Habit*
How many times have you told yourself that this is the last cigarette from the last packet, only to lose your resolve and continue with your smoking habit? Any habitual actions are prompted by your subconscious and difficult to break, especially when accompanied by an addiction to harmful substances such as nicotine. At the Conway Practice, hypnotherapy in Brighton can help you to stop smoking through the recognition of the reason behind the dependence.*
Nicotine cravings are relatively short-lived compared to the hand-to-mouth routine of smoking. There may be no conscious awareness of the urge to light a cigarette, but while your mind is in the relaxed state of hypnosis and receptive to positive suggestion, these triggers can be identified and overcome. There will be certain situations and routines associated with smoking, such as emotional states of mind or social activities in environments where it’s difficult to resist a cigarette.
Jonathan Conway will use focusing exercises enabling positive management of cue-induced cravings.*
The subconscious is where all your memories are stored, often holding events which have long been consciously forgotten and the origin of first seeing yourself as a smoker and why the habit has continued will be addressed. Among many causes, this may have been due to curiosity, peer pressure or a stressful time in your life, responsible for activating a psychological dependence on a smoking habit. During hypnosis, with Jonathan’s guidance you will learn how to disassociate a cigarette as a reward or a pleasurable experience and replace any negative thoughts with new coping mechanisms.*
No one can be forced to do anything against their will during hypnosis and despite pressure and nagging from family or friends, a smoking cessation programme will only succeed if you have the motivation and self-belief that your goal can be achieved. Hypnotherapy will help you to realise that your old beliefs are outdated, retraining your subconscious mind to accept that you are no longer a smoker.*

Managing a Fear of Public Speaking with Hypnotherapy*
If speaking in public causes anxiety you are not alone and this is considered to be one of the most common phobias. Help with public speaking in Brighton through hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice, Jonathan will identify the deeper reasons behind the extreme discomfort felt.* A state of panic may occur at the mere thought of addressing an audience. This performance anxiety can be triggered when under pressure to deliver in an environment where you feel out of your comfort zone, even if you are called to present to a small number of people, or in a one-to-one situation.
Hypnotherapy will allow your subconscious to trace the origins of your fear, while your mind is more receptive and open to positive suggestion.* Perhaps without conscious recall, an incident in the past is now limiting your confidence with the belief that it will reoccur each time you are the focus of attention with others judging every word you say. The root cause may be an ingrained memory of something as simple as coughing in the middle of your speech, or your mind going blank during a presentation.
This fear of public speaking is often self-limiting, with a negative affect on both professional and personal life, resulting in the avoidance where possible of all situations where you are called upon to verbally share your thoughts and ideas with others. During hypnosis, Jonathan will help to reprogramme any negative misbeliefs that you are facing a hostile audience, allowing a positive visualisation of yourself as relaxed and completely in control.*
There are certain circumstances which can’t be avoided without affecting progress in your career, or enjoyment of social gatherings. Hypnotherapy can enable you to overcome the anxiety of giving a wedding speech or of delivering a presentation during an interview. Relaxation and calming methods absorbed while under hypnosis will allow fear to be transformed into a feeling of greater confidence and self-worth.* This new found positivity can be a great motivator with the potential to open the way to opportunities where your fear of public speaking has held you back in the past.*

Quit Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Harley Street*
If you have broken your resolution to stop smoking, you may well find it daunting as to where you go from here. You might be considering accepting that you will always be a smoker and will never free of the habit, especially if you’ve had several failed attempts in the past. Quitting smoking with hypnotherapy in Harley Street takes a different approach to dealing with the habitual need to smoke, allowing you to focus on the reasons behind the dependence, beyond the addiction to nicotine.*
When providing sessions in hypnotherapy in Harley Street, Jonathan Conway will help you to understand why you have found it so difficult to give up a habit which you know to be harmful to your health and is increasingly considered to be anti-social in many environments.* You may not be consciously aware of what you associate with the need to smoke. This may be a combination of factors with a common trigger, such as feeling anxious when socialising, where lighting a cigarette not only gives you a momentary relief from social anxiety, it also enables bonding with other smokers and a feeling of acceptance. When attempting to manage life’s stressors, smoking is frequently used as a coping method, but it’s not a solution to dealing with the issues which have caused the tension and unease.
During hypnosis in Harley Street, the mind is more open and receptive to positive suggestion, enabling the subconscious barriers which have prevented smoking cessation in the past to be replaced with the self-help tools promoting change and increased motivation.* Breaking the hand-to-mouth habit can be more challenging than overcoming the chemical addiction. These learning mechanisms can be deeply rooted and are often traced back to adolescence. Gently guided by Jonathan while you are in the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis, your underlying limiting beliefs can be addressed, accessing your emotional and intellectual experiences.* With a new coping ability you will be back in control and able to change negative behavioural patterns, freeing yourself from the smoking habit.* Hypnotherapy in Harley Street at the Conway Practice will not only help you to stop smoking, it can also awaken the inner potential for greater achievement, self-belief and well-being.*

Weight Management with Hypnotherapy in Brighton*
If you want to lose weight, have you considered your relationship with food? Weight loss with hypnotherapy in Brighton at the Conway Practice can be achieved by allowing you to address subconscious thoughts which result in negative eating habits undermining any attempts to lose weight.*
Unlike ineffective yo-yo dieting, or crash diets which are unsustainable, weight management with hypnotherapy is about understanding the role food plays in your life and why it has been difficult to control your cravings.* Hypnosis weight loss techniques can help you to recognise the underlying causes which trigger the unhealthy eating habits contributing to weight gain and the inability to achieve the necessary life-style changes.* The mind is far more open to positive suggestion during the relaxed state of hypnosis, enabling Jonathan to trace the origins of your attitude to food and where changes need to be introduced.*
The subconscious prompts which trigger patterns of negative eating have various sources. Mindless eating can be associated with boredom, where food is simply something to help pass the time, without an awareness of any feeling of fullness, or how much is being consumed. Hypnotherapy can enable you to recognise the specific danger zones and to disassociate food with situations where you are at most risk of temptation.*
Comfort eating is often a learned response which can be traced back to childhood and family influences with food continuing to be a coping mechanism when you’re feeling anxious or miserable. Hypnosis for weight loss is an effective coaching tool, allowing you to process negative emotions and understand the distinction between emotional and physical hunger.* In re-conditioning your subconscious, the delusion that food is the solution to stress or low self-esteem can be replaced with a new and positive mind-set and a far healthier lifestyle.*

Many obstacles to self-improvement can be traced to negative self-belief stored in the sub-conscious. During hypnosis while the mind is relaxed and open to a high absorption of positive suggestion, Jonathan will guide you gently through a visualisation process where you remain completely aware and in control throughout, similar to a pleasant day-dream state of mind.*
Hypnotherapy sessions in Brighton can help to identify areas of your life where your conscious mind has undermined your efforts to deal with certain issues which have been causing stress and concern.* You may want to stop smoking, be more confident, reduce anxiety or overcome phobias and fears.

Harley Street Hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice
As we enter a new year, it’s often a time of reflection on the achievements or regrets during the past 12 months. For those who feel there are personal or professional issues which need to be resolved, Harley Street hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice provides the opportunity to take make significant life-style changes and to re-take control of any areas which have been lacking in focus and direction.*
During the first consultation, Jonathan Conway will explain that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach with hypnotherapy. Phobias for example, such as a fear of flying, public speaking or social anxiety can share a common trigger which the conscious mind may be unaware of. Hypnosis in Harley Street enables access to the subconscious where negative experiences have been stored, resurfacing each time a similar situation arises.* For anyone faced with their phobia, avoidance may bring temporary relief, but when occurring on a daily basis this can be extremely disruptive and self-limiting.
Once these triggers have been identified, hypnosis can be applied to remove the learned response, whether this is something inherited from someone else or due to a traumatic incident in your own past. Fear and anxiety are self-sabotaging and dis-empowering and hypnotherapy can very effectively help you to recognise the origin of your fears and to re-programme negative thought patterns held in the subconscious. In seeking relief from anxiety or stress, hypnosis can change the way in which you react to stressors, with the power to increase confidence and creativity.*
Negative habits may have formed over a considerable length of time and be due to many different factors. Hypnosis can be applied to bridge the gap between the conscious and sub-conscious mind, enabling habitual behaviour such as compulsive eating or smoking to be understood and overcome.* At the Conway Practice, hypnotherapy in Harley Street will help you to introduce new coping mechanisms, overcome obstacles that have been holding you back and achieve your ambitions for the year ahead.*

Weight Loss in Brighton with Hypnotherapy*
Is this the year that you are determined to lose weight and maintain a healthy eating programme? New year resolutions may have been broken in the past simply due to not being in the right mindset and seeing a change of eating habits as a form of punishment by depriving yourself of the food you love most. Weight loss in Brighton with hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice, will help you to recognise the psychological triggers which cause compulsive eating or the need to rely on unhealthy foods for comfort.*
While the mind is in the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis and open to positive suggestion, Jonathan Conway will explore the sustainable lifestyle changes that can make a world of difference to achieving your ideal weight.* Perhaps you have self-sabotaged attempts to lose weight in the past due to a lack of self-worth, believing that you don’t deserve to be slimmer and fitter. Is your craving for high calorie comfort foods a sign of emotional need rather than physical hunger? It’s common to associate certain food with rewards, often buried in the subconscious from childhood.
Hypnotherapy in Brighton for weight loss enables the mind to disassociate itself from long held misconceptions and to form more positive attitudes and beliefs.* In identifying the underlying factors which have been responsible for weight gain, it becomes possible to initiate lifestyle changes, replacing the negative emotional triggers such as anxiety, boredom and low self-esteem with increased motivation and a sense of well-being. Hypnosis is a safe and natural way to achieve weight loss without resorting to unsustainable crash or fad diets, pills or diet supplements.* In helping you to take control of your eating habits, hypnotherapy can also enable you to establish positive life management and personal resilience, shaping the future by changing your self-limiting beliefs.*

The Convenience of Telephone or Skype Coaching*
For anyone who finds face-to-face coaching too uncomfortable when discussing personal issues, telephone & Skype coaching provides the opportunity to share concerns freely without any awkwardness or unease. Jonathan Conway has found that when someone is in need of guidance it is often easier to open up at a distance rather than in person during an in-situ session.
Coaching by telephone or via Skype gives the opportunity to schedule sessions without compromising work or personal commitments and can be the ideal solution for busy executives who find it difficult to take time out from pressing responsibilities. Geographic restrictions are removed and time zones permitting, coaching sessions can be pre-arranged whenever resolution is sought to overcome an obstacle which may be self-limiting.
Jonathan is well aware that when faced with a crucial decision you may be located far from your home base and feel isolated with the choices that need to be made.
Skype or telephone coaching offers the convenience to seek help when the need arises without the cost or time limitations of travelling to keep an appointment. Many also find they are more at ease and less distracted in the familiar surroundings of their physical comfort zone.
Whether you find yourself at a crossroads in your life and need direction to find the best way forward, or are seeking help to improve performance and personal development, distance coaching by telephone or via Skype can be extremely effective. It’s often difficult to ask for advice from work colleagues, friends or family who may be unable to advise impartially. Coaching in a virtual environment can of course be alternated with face-to-face sessions at the Conway Practice, tailored to your individual needs and circumstances.

How Hypnotherapy in Harley Street can Help Achieve Positive Change*
What can you expect from hypnotherapy in Harley Street at The Conway Practice?
If you know little about the benefits of hypnosis, it may come as a surprise that help is available which could bring positive change if you are underachieving or have psychologically related issues which are having a negative affect in your professional or personal life.*
Problems can be due to habits which have built up over a number of years and have proved difficult to break. This includes the hand to mouth habits of smoking or overeating, both of which are automatic responses to subconscious triggers. During the hypnosis sessions in Harley Street, Jonathan will help you to identify and trace the roots of any compulsive behaviour and introduce new coping mechanisms.* Stress is often responsible for a reliance on alcohol or an addiction to harmful substances such as nicotine. Hypnotherapy provides a safe environment where any anxiety can be managed, enabling you to overcome behavioural problems which have been disrupting your life.*
Phobic reactions are generally deeply rooted in the subconscious, often with no conscious awareness of the original cause. Phobias due to a traumatic event can be passed on by parents or a fear of flying for instance may be instigated by a disaster movie or a report of an air accident in the media. There can however be a combination of phobias, including social anxiety, a fear of enclosed spaces (claustrophobia), or a sense of panic when you are away from a place that represents safety.
Hypnosis enables the unconscious mind to desensitise and re-programme negative thought patterns.* Hypnotherapy in Harley Street with Jonathan Conway can help you to eliminate any self-sabotaging behaviour and learn how to practice visualisation and relaxation techniques which will ensure you are on track to achieve positive change.*

Lose Weight with Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove*
As the festive season approaches with the temptation to indulge in excess, you might be torn between getting into shape before the celebrations start or waiting until the New Year to address any bad eating habits. Delaying the weight management programme may simply serve as an excuse to overeat, especially when this is generally recognised as acceptable behaviour at this time of the year. Hypnotherapy in Brighton can help you to lose weight without spoiling your enjoyment of family meals and social gatherings.*
During sessions in hypnosis at the Conway Practice in Brighton & Hove, Jonathan Conway will discuss your relationship with food and what it means to you.* Is it perhaps a form of comfort and self-reward, or something which you rely on during times of stress? Without doubt, festivities can be stressful for some and even more so for those who experience social anxiety. Do you reach for something to eat in order to appear occupied when faced with making conversation? If you’re eating you can’t be talking at the same time, allowing you to avoid interaction. Mindless eating during a social situation can be a form of mirroring the habits of others in order to fit in, despite not being physically hungry.
Hypnotherapy enables the subconscious to co-operate with the conscious mind and to build a defence against the overeating triggers.* While in the state of hypnosis, powerful resources stored deep in the unconscious can be drawn upon to establish new coping mechanisms.* Relaxation techniques to reduce stress and manage anxiety can be combined with positive imaging, the rehearsal for a relationship with food where you, rather than your emotions are in control.*
Weight loss with hypnotherapy in Brighton can be achieved by overcoming self-limiting beliefs and creating beneficial life-style changes.* In the re-programming of unhealthy eating habits the way you think about food and what it represents will be transformed, resulting in much healthier and sustainable weight management.*
