Hypnotherapy Can Help You to Stop Smoking in Brighton & Hove

Quit Smoking with The Conway PracticeAre you a smoker who despite resolve and resolutions have seen Stoptober and national No Smoking days pass you by without being able to stop? As with any addiction, Nicotine can have a powerful hold and even with pressure from family and friends or being made to feel that you’ve become a social outcast, however determined you may be to give up it’s not going to be an easy habit to break.

That’s when The Conway Practice can step in with help to quit smoking in Brighton & Hove with hypnotherapy sessions.

You are probably well aware that apart from being hard on your pocket, smoking is bad for your health and nicotine is a highly toxic substance. The physical addiction however isn’t the only issue as there is also the problem of a psychological dependence.

You are likely to have certain times in the day when you ‘reward’ yourself with a cigarette, such as during a work break, when you’re out for a drink with friends, or to calm you down when you’re under stress and want to relax. You will therefore experience cravings on two levels when you attempt to stop, both physical and emotional. You may be surprised to hear that the psychological craving is often far more difficult to overcome than nicotine withdrawal.

Hypnosis in Brighton & Hove is a safe and holistic therapy, has been shown to have great success in helping smokers to quit. Smoking is to a large extent about habituation, but unlike some enjoyable habits it is actually a form of self-harm.

Hypnotherapy services available in Brighton & Hove will help you to identify and deal with the repetitive triggers that you associate with smoking. You will understand how you can use positive thought to eliminate the destructive side of your subconscious that has been allowing the addiction to continue. During this hyper-responsive state of mind, Jonathan Conway, BSc Dp EHP.NLP MNCH (acc), will guide you through a visualisation of personal motivation and change, learning how to respect your body.

lose-weight-brighton-hoveIf you feel you need help with a particular issue in your life that you are unable to resolve on your own, there are hypnotherapy services available in Brighton & Hove at the Conway Practice. Under hypnosis, many emotional and psychological disorders can be addressed in a purely safe and natural way without the use of medication. Hypnotherapy can in fact be the most effective method for prompting positive life changes.

In fact your awareness will be heightened, leaving you more receptive to suggestion. This trance-like state of mind could be likened to when you ‘switch off’ during a long train or plane journey and find yourself daydreaming until you reach your destination. You are aware of everything going on around you but you’re not focused on your surroundings.

Hypnotherapy services in Brighton & Hove can assist you in changing areas of your life where you feel you are being held back by the inability to change the way you cope with certain situations, for example in your career, relationships, education, or simply in your everyday routine.

Negative thoughts will have been gathered over time and under hypnosis in Brighton & Hove these can be unlearned and transformed into something positive.

How hypnotherapy in Harley Street can help you lose weight.

Are diets simply a waste of time? Jonathan Conway of the Conway Practice is unsure how helpful they are. Global Market Research company Mintel has reported that generally, at any given time one in four adults in the UK is attempting to lose weight and feel fitter or more attractive, which equates to around 13 million of the population.

Realistically, if dieting is effective and the excess weight stays off at the first attempt, companies producing the slimming products or promoting the diet plans would soon be out of business.

SoHypnotherapy for weight loss. how is hypnotherapy different? Primarily it looks at the relationship you have with food and helps you to change your behaviour and attitude to eating. Your subconscious mind is far more receptive to suggestion while you are under hypnosis and can be retrained to focus on positive goals, such as being slimmer, healthier and less reliant on ‘comfort eating’ during periods of stress.

Jonathan Conway, a fully qualified hypnotherapist, will explain how you can lose weight with hypnotherapy and show you how to use this focused concentration that you experience under hypnosis while you are at home or work, enabling you to achieve improvement in your eating habits and a better self-image.

Hypnotherapy will help you to avoid eating for the wrong reasons, such as boredom, anxiety, depression, or wrongly believing that you are rewarding yourself by eating ‘comfort’ food. The ‘reward’ is only likely to be followed rapidly by a feeling of guilt and disappointment. This is a familiar feeling when diets are broken.

When you need help losing weight, hypnotherapy sessions can bring about positive change and allow you to control the problems you may have been experiencing with your eating behaviour. Unlike dieting, this will have lasting affect and long-term weight maintenance with absolutely no risk to your health.

How Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove Can Help With Social Anxiety

self-esteem-brightonAt this time of the year whilst many are eagerly awaiting the start of the Christmas and New Year festivities, for some this brings a feeling of dread. If you panic at the thought of celebrating with others, you may need to seek help for social anxiety using hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Brighton & Hove.

Hypnotherapy is extremely effective in dealing with a social anxiety disorder and related phobias. You may feel that you will be under scrutiny and judged by others in a social situation and this anxiety can wreak havoc in both your work and personal life. It’s not simply a case of shyness, but a far more deep-rooted fear of being humiliated or embarrassed when interacting socially.

This can mean that your enjoyment of life is severely limited, affecting relationships and family activities. These anxieties can even have an impact on everyday routines such as mixing with work colleagues, presenting at an interview, forming new relationships or joining clubs and social groups.

Typically, the social phobia is triggered by an incident as far back as childhood and may have seemed insignificant at the time. There is often a combination of phobias involved such as a fear of being away from home or where you consider as ‘safe’ (agoraphobia), or a fear of enclosed spaces and of having no escape (claustrophobia). These anxieties can cause an overwhelming feeling of stress which result in a full panic attack with a physical reaction such as breathlessness and feeling close to collapse.

Social phobias can be an extremely heavy burden to carry, leaving you feeling very much alone and unable to enjoy yourself with others. You’re likely to turn down invitations to parties and social gatherings which then makes you feel an outsider when people stop inviting you.

Phobic anxiety will restrict you from making the most of any opportunities that come along in your life due to fear and a lack of self-confidence. Any deep-rooted phobias and anxieties can be identified and addressed during hypnotherapy and NLP sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Brighton & Hove. You will learn how to release your fears and approach social situations in a positive way, changing your behaviour pattern and releasing negative thoughts that have been preventing you from fully enjoying life.

Hypnosis is medication-free and completely safe and you will remain in control and relaxed at all times.

Executive Coaching with Hypnotherapy in Highgate

lose-weight-brighton-hoveDecision makers in a corporate environment can find it a lonely place to be at times, with few people to turn to for advice and support. Executive coaching in Highgate at the Conway Practice provides valuable help with improving personal performance and any issues which may need to be resolved. You may feel that you are expected to achieve at a high level day in and day out, possibly at the expense of your family and personal life.

When this pressure becomes too much and you’re expected to be almost super-human, it’s time to seek help to recognise the root cause of your stress in order to learn how to handle it positively. 

Hypnotherapy and NLP combine very effectively with coaching sessions, enabling you to identify your career goals and understand how you can best achieve them.

You may feel that you have already reached the pinnacle professionally, but want to eliminate the pressure and perform more efficiently. At executive level colleagues may constantly turn to you for guidance and expect you to give the right answers. This can cause stress and anxiety if you feel unworthy of the confidence they have in you, or if your self-belief is poor. Or perhaps you feel you are ready to make a career move but find your personal presentation and interview skills are lacking.

These feelings can often be traced back to childhood when you may have felt under pressure to give the right answer in the classroom and were afraid you would be ridiculed by teachers and peers if you didn’t. Parental conditioning can play a significant part in how you now cope with challenging situations in the work-place.

Perhaps you were expected to over-achieve and meet their high expectations, or at the other end of the spectrum, were faced with parents giving little or no support to your ambitions, leaving you with low self-esteem.

During sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Highgate, the root cause of your anxieties will be identified and any fears you may have can be erased, enabling you to cope easily with stressful situations, increasing your motivation to succeed. 
Improved management skills will ensure that your professional and personal life are well-balanced and that the improvement continues for the future.

Hypnotherapy is extremely effective in reaching the deepest level of the subconscious mind, helping to re-tune the source of your negative emotions. It is completely safe and you will remain relaxed and in control throughout.

Executive Coaching with Hypnotherapy in Harley Street

The Conway PracticeDo you need help with executive coaching in Harley Street? In the corporate world, executives are expected to achieve a high level of performance every day. It’s becoming increasingly common to experience work-related stress and decision makers are constantly faced with challenges with the requirement to project a confident and ‘in control’ image to co-workers in order to retain a competitive edge.

In the fast pace of the world we live in demands are high, with stress in the work-place often spilling over into family and personal life. You may feel that your corporate role puts you under pressure so that at times you are expected to deliver a super-human performance.

This cycle of stress can result in a struggle to balance work and home life to the extent that you feel you are in danger of not managing either very well.

Hypnotherapy and NLP combined with coaching are extremely effective. During sessions at the Conway Practice, Jonathan will help you to identify where you want to be in your career and how you can best reach that goal. It may simply be that you want to continue in your current role but would like to perform more efficiently and without feeling under constant pressure. Jonathan will work with you to increase your motivation to succeed and improve your self-confidence.

You may have particular issues that you need to resolve. For example, perhaps you are uncomfortable with public speaking or presenting to a panel. If you find interviews stressful this risks having a negative impact on progressing your career.

It’s essential that the root cause of any anxiety is identified. It may be traced to a difficulty in speaking up in the school classroom and you are now concerned that you will receive a poor response if you say the wrong thing.

This is a recognised phobia, known as glossophobia. Any unfounded fears you may have can be helped greatly by hypnotherapy and NLP, enabling you to develop the self-belief to demonstrate improved management skills and leave your stress and anxiety in the past.

Hypnotherapy allows your negative thoughts to be re-tuned, creating positive and long-lasting change in your life.

The Conway Practice Can Help With Your Fear Of Blushing

lose-weight-brighton-hoveYou may have arrived at the point in your life when you have decided you really need to find someone in Highgate who can help with your fear of blushing. We all blush, but for some this can affect their quality of life. You may feel that people will make fun of you if you blush, so you find yourself avoiding social functions where you believe you will be watched. In fact generally speaking, people aren’t likely to take pleasure in your embarrassment and would be supportive if you allowed them.

The fear of blushing (Elythrophobia) is far more common than you may think and you’re certainly not alone with the problem. It’s a complex phobia and may be combined with social anxiety and a general anxiety phobia (GAD). It can be self-perpetuating; the more concerned you are about blushing the more you increase the occasions when it happens. If your brain is focused on the stress of blushing the frequency will increase considerably, leaving you trapped in a vicious circle.

How does this happen? Our flight or fight response, which we all experience at times, is triggered by our nervous system. Adrenaline floods through the body, resulting in a physical reaction. This can increase the heart rate and adrenaline, which is also known as epinephrine, widens certain blood vessels. When the facial veins become temporarily wider, blushing is the side effect. If your fear of blushing is linked to a social anxiety disorder, this may be caused through irrational fears that are buried within past experiences, perhaps from when you were a child, relating to how you were conditioned to cope with fear. The trigger for blushing is likely to vary greatly for each person and identifying it is the key.

Through hypnotherapy and NLP sessions in Highgate you can learn how to let go of the belief that everyone is thinking less of you or making a negative judgement. You can be helped to increase your level of self-confidence and learn to relax. Even something as simple as releasing tension, especially in your neck and shoulders is likely to make a significant difference, allowing the redness to fade. It’s also important to understand that most people won’t even notice when you blush unless you draw attention to it.

Jonathan Conway, a qualified hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner & NLP Coach with over 18 years’ experience, will show you how to control your anxiety and help you to understand why you blush, enabling you to retrain your subconscious mind to accept that it’s quite normal and that no one will judge you for it.

How Hypnotherapy in Highgate Can Help With Your Fear of Public Speaking

public-speaking-brightonDo you need help to overcome your fear of public speaking When you’re faced with standing up and speaking in front of an audience, even a small one, your mind may go completely blank and a feeling of panic may set in.

That fear may be so powerful that your heart rate quickens, your breathing becomes shallow and you feel that you are close to collapse.

 This is actually a common phobia and can often be traced back to a conditioned belief or an upsetting incident that occurred earlier in your life.

Hypnotherapy sessions in Highgate help you to identify and recognise the root cause of your fear. The actual problem may not be the concern of whether you’ll remember what you have to say, it’s more likely to be a deep fear of receiving a negative reaction from your audience. In the past you may have felt that you were always being ‘put down’ or criticised by siblings, parents or teachers in the classroom in front of others.

This fear of public speaking may be limiting your professional life if you are expected to present to your superiors or talk at seminars. It may also inhibit your performance in interviews and restrict your chances of promotion if you have to present to a panel.

Students may avoid classes where they are afraid that they will perform badly if they have to explain their ideas or read out loud. This self-consciousness may also affect other situations when communication is necessary, such as asking a stranger for directions. This is especially the case when there is a combination of phobias; a fear of public speaking (glossophobia) and a social anxiety phobia.

What you are afraid of most, a negative reaction, is unlikely to happen. These unfounded fears can be helped through hypnotherapy and NLP, enabling you to overcome them and move forward. This will ultimately reduce your self-consciousness and increase your self-confidence. Hypnotherapy and NLP sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Highgate are completely safe, leaving you in a relaxed state of mind and in control throughout.

Using the power of your own imagination, visualisation techniques will allow you to approach public speaking in a confident and calm state of mind.
