How hypnotherapy can help to stop smoking in 2017*
The start of a new year is an excellent time to give up smoking as you are likely to have set yourself a goal and to be more determined to succeed.* No matter how much pressure others may have put on you, the decision to stop must be down to your own commitment and self-motivation and not simply to please friends and family.
Hypnotherapy can help to stop smoking naturally without the aid of nicotine substitutes which don’t address the reason for your habit.* Contrary to what you may believe, nicotine addiction isn’t the sole issue in preventing you from giving up. During sessions in hypnosis with Jonathan at the Conway Practice, the reason behind why you feel the need to smoke and why you find it difficult to quit will be uncovered while your mind is in a relaxed state and your subconscious is receptive to positive suggestion.*
If your first experience of smoking was due to wanting to emulate role figures in your life or to mirror your peers, you may now find that you continue to see sharing a cigarette as a social activity. Hypnotherapy will enable you to reprogram your conception to understand that stopping smoking doesn’t mean that you will be lonely and less accepted by your friends.* If you refuse a cigarette when you’re offered one, you’re not rejecting their friendship.
There are of course other reasons why you continue to smoke even when you’re aware that it’s harmful to your health or your finances. Stress or boredom can be major factors, and although nicotine may provide a very brief feeling of relief, much is due to a psychological reassurance which again is short-lived. Hypnotherapy can not only be a very effective way to stop smoking but will also help you to identify and manage the underlying cause of your tension and anxiety which has been preventing you from giving up the habit.* Jonathan can help you to succeed in your resolution to become a non-smoker in 2017.*

How Hypnotherapy in Brighton Can Help With Social Anxiety*
Does the festive season fill you with dread, knowing that you will be expected to join in with the celebrations? For some, anxiety can spoil what should be an enjoyable time spent with friends and family, ranging from shyness to fear when faced with a social situation. So how can hypnotherapy help with social anxiety?* During sessions in hypnosis at the Conway Practice, Jonathan will sensitively reveal the core issues which trigger negative feelings.*
This problem is often related to a fear of being poorly judged and considered as the outsider within a group. You may be able to trace back to a particular incident which has left a negative imprint stored within your subconscious mind. However much you may wish to socialise with others, you may be reliving the same feeling
of a bad experience in the past and expect it to happen again. Recognising how you felt at the time and how you can now release and erase these feelings can be achieved through hypnotherapy.*
Social anxiety is often a combination of phobias. Agoraphobia for example manifests as a fear of being away from what you consider to be your safe place. You may be afraid that if you are not in control, you will be trapped and unable to leave if you wish to. Even if you are with people that you know, you might still be worried that you will say the wrong thing and be ridiculed in front of others and that a feeling of mild anxiety may turn into full blown panic. Whereas for some, an adrenalin surge is experienced as excitement, for others unable to manage their stress levels it could be felt as physical and emotional panic.*
Social anxiety is often a result of low self-esteem and Jonathan will help you to gain greater confidence and self-belief, enabling you to approach social situations in a relaxed state of mind.* Hypnotherapy can help you to look forward to socialising with others, opening up new friendships and opportunities.*

Hypnosis for Weight Loss in Brighton*
How can hypnotherapy help you to lose weight?* If you have tried to reduce your weight and not had the success you had hoped for, during hypnosis sessions at the Conway Practice in Brighton, Jonathan will help you to recognise why you are finding your relationship with food has such a negative affect on your life.*
A fad or a crash diet isn’t the solution as it won’t be sustainable in the long term and bad eating habits with simply return. Approaching weight management in this way creates a negative cycle of dieting, followed by periods of unhealthy eating. You may find that you have a brief determination to lose weight, perhaps for a special occasion or for medical reasons and when you don’t achieve rapid success you immediately become disheartened and turn to food for emotional compensation.
There are many contributing factors to obesity and hypnotherapy can help you to identify the unconscious motivation behind your poor eating habits.* Stress can be a contributing factor when food is a substitute for comfort. There may be certain foods that you reach for when you are under pressure, but realistically the lift in mood will be brief and eating for comfort won’t actually improve your day. Jonathan will show you relaxation and breathing techniques which can be followed whenever you need to reduce your stress levels, avoiding the temptation to turn to unhealthy, high calorie food.*
Eating through boredom when you are not actually hungry is a compulsive disorder and you may find yourself snacking without consciously being aware of what you are eating. You will recognise the triggers to your overeating and come to appreciate that food isn’t the solution to relieving your boredom.* During hypnosis you will learn how to focus on a positive activity as a distraction from eating mindlessly.* Hypnotherapy can help you increase your willpower to step out of your comfort zone and take positive steps to fill your life with more rewarding diversions.*
With hypnotherapy, weight management need not be a struggle and you can be back in control of healthy and well-balanced eating with a new and positive attitude towards food.*
