How Hypnotherapy Can Help You to Overcome a Fear of Flying*

fear-of-flying-brightonAre friends or family preparing to fly off on holiday and leave you grounded as you can’t face boarding the aeroplane? As much as you would like to travel with them, perhaps you feel that you have to accept the situation, but this really needn’t be the case as hypnotherapy can help you to overcome a fear of flying*

At the Conway Practice, during hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway the source of your fear can be brought to light.* Contrary to what many might think, this is often not as simple as being afraid of crashing and other factors could well be involved. Perhaps you are uncomfortable at being seated next to a stranger for a considerable period of time and are concerned that you may embarrass yourself if you panic during the flight. Social anxiety frequently has a part to play in travel phobias and can be triggered even at the thought of being held in a large crowd at the airport or having to make small talk or eat in front of someone you don’t know on the aeroplane.

There is also the factor that you are not in control while you are in the air and you are relying on someone you have probably never met to get you safely to your destination. In the past you may have summoned the courage to board the plane and then spent the time away dwelling anxiously on the return journey. This fear of flying can not only spoil leisure trips but may also adversely affect business commitments if you are unable to travel by air for meetings.

During hypnosis, Jonathan Conway will trace the origins of your travel phobia,  helping to you deal with your anxiety and you will learn how to practice relaxation techniques on your own whenever you are in a situation that you find stressful.*

Help to manage your individual fear response with positive visualisation and deep breathing exercises together with self-hypnosis and NLP anchoring techniques will potentially open up a whole new world for you where you will find you actually look forward to flying.*

How Hypnotherapy can Help Overcome a Fear of Public Speaking*

confidenceDo you often wonder why some people appear to find public speaking easy, while for you it’s an ordeal? Actually, you’re not alone and a fear of public speaking is considered to be one of the most common phobias.* This can affect far more than speaking in front of an audience and you may find that you become anxious even when talking to strangers where you are outside of your ‘comfort zone’.

Most people are not conscious of when or where the phobia first began, but during Hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway at the Conway Practice in Brighton, the root cause of your anxiety can be uncovered while your subconscious mind is deeply relaxed and receptive.* Being afraid to speak in front of others is often linked to a fear of being judged, or that the words will simply dry up. In fact during an anxious state there are physically reactions, including a dry mouth and raised adrenalin, causing a ‘flight or fight’ reaction where you feel you just want to escape from the situation.

Perhaps your phobia can be traced back to your school years when you were reluctant to speak up in class due to the fear of saying the wrong thing and being ridiculed in front of your peers or in trouble with the teacher. If you’ve had a previous bad experience, your subconscious mind is likely to remind you of this by implanting a negative thought that it will be repeated every time you speak in front of others. If you’ve started to cough for example in the middle of a speech or a presentation you may be so concerned that this will happen again that you try to avoid similar situations.

No doubt you will have found however that you can’t always side-step times when you are expected to speak. Wedding speeches or other social gatherings shouldn’t be something to dread or your career progression limited due to a reluctance to present your ideas in front of colleagues or clients. While under hypnosis, Jonathan will use positive visualisation to improve your self-esteem and help you to eliminate any negative thoughts that have been the cause of your anxiety.* You will also be shown how deep-breathing and relaxation techniques will ensure you are calm and confident when speaking in public.*

Personal Development with Telephone and Skype Coaching*

self-esteemWho do you turn to when you need guidance on career issues or personal development? You may find yourself reluctant to seek help from colleagues and feel that family and friends may be biased, or you are uncomfortable about sharing your problems with them. Telephone and Skype coaching enables you to talk openly about areas of your life where you feel you are underachieving, with someone who is supportive and non-judgemental.*

Jonathan Conway finds that for many, life coaching by Skype or over the telephone  allows them to speak more freely from a distance, rather than face-to-face in the same room.* However, there is no lack of personal attention and as the sessions can be timed to fit in with the caller’s often busy schedule, it gives the opportunity to discuss any concerns in a relaxed environment. Executives frequently find that the pressure of daily commitments leave them little space to fit in other appointments outside of work and finding the time to seek help for stress management can be stressful in itself, especially when it isn’t close at hand.

The significant advantage of Telephone and Skype coaching is that sessions can be held from whenever and wherever in the world, time zones permitting of course.* You may find for instance that sitting alone in a hotel room is the very time that you need to turn to someone for advice and direction. No one chooses when they may reach a crossroads in their life, when big decisions need to be made. Coaching sessions with Jonathan will help you to find the inner confidence to take the right step towards your goals, both personally and professionally.*

Perhaps you feel you lack the self-esteem to achieve everything you hope for and are being held back from moving forward. Anxiety can often cloud the vision and during life coaching sessions, Jonathan will explain how you can reduce your stress levels by using positive visualisation, which you will be able to carry out on your own whenever needed.* Once you are able to recognise your strengths and your true potential you will feel more in control of your life and at ease with the decisions that need to be made.*

Life Coaching Help for Executive Stress with Hypnotherapy*

executive-stressThe pressure of responsibility at senior level in the corporate world can rest heavily on your shoulders, and at times even affecting all areas of your life. Hypnotherapy can help with executive stress in a completely safe and natural way, without the use of medication.* By combining hypnosis with NLP, during coaching sessions at the Conway Practice in Harley Street, Jonathan will assess how you have been handling stress and anxiety and how your coping mechanism can be improved.*

It’s common for someone holding an executive role to be reluctant to turn to colleagues for advice, not only with work issues but also to admit that they are in need of emotional support. This can be felt as a personal failure and an inability to achieve at the level demanded. Executive stress is often triggered by constant pressure to meet set targets and profitability, while managing the performance levels of others.*

When this stress spills over into the personal life, it may seem impossible to switch off and relax, even when on holiday. Alcohol or other mood enhancers may provide a brief escape from the pressure, but this is only likely to become one more issue that needs to be addressed.* Improved communication is often an important key to finding the way forward and by combining hypnotherapy with neuro linguistic programming (NLP), the appreciation of how words and body language can be used more positively has the potential to result in a more co-operative and supportive response from colleagues, family and friends* Life coaching with Jonathan Conway will help you to look at how you can manage all relationships, both professional and personal, increasing the level of support and understanding you may have been reluctant to admit that you need.*

Perhaps you lack self-esteem and either believe that you are not able to achieve all that is expected of you. You may feel trapped between wanting to move up on the professional ladder but don’t have the confidence to do so. Whatever you feel is holding you back from reducing anxiety and enjoying life to the full, hypnotherapy and NLP will get you back on track.* Coaching sessions will help you to re-establish the right work/life balance and effective self-management.*

The Natural Way to Give Up Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Harley Street*

quit-smokingAre you a smoker who regularly tells yourself that this packet of cigarettes will be the last you’ll buy, or that each cigarette will be the final one and yet it never is? If you are really determined to be a non-smoker, you can find help to stop smoking with hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Harley Street.* 

In the same way that it has been your choice to smoke, it’s also your choice alone when you decide to stop. No one can make this decision for you, even though family and friends may put constant pressure on you to quit smoking due to a concern for your health or the money being wasted. There is a scale of readiness for when you really intend to give up and as hypnotherapy can’t force you to do something you’re not truly committed to, Jonathan Conway will talk through your reasons for stopping before the sessions begin.

Nicotine is a highly addictive substance that gives a brief feeling of relaxation and it’s understandable why many smoke to relieve stress and anxiety. However, nicotine withdrawal is generally believed to last for 72 hours or so*, but it’s the actual habit of smoking; lighting a cigarette at certain times or during stressful situations that needs to be identified and addressed.

While you are in the state of hypnosis, Jonathan will uncover the reasons why you feel the need to smoke.* There may be specific times in the day when you reach for a cigarette. This might be to unwind during a break from a challenging day at work, due to boredom or socially to fit in with other smokers. It’s often significant to trace back to when your first started to smoke and why. Perhaps it was during your teenage years as a challenge to authority figures to show that you were independent and no longer a child, or simply to follow your peers and be part of the crowd. Frequently poor stress management or lack of self-confidence plays a major part.*

Hypnotherapy is a safe and natural way to give up smoking.* You will understand how to reduce stress levels without harmful substances and will be shown visualisation techniques that you can continue after the sessions.* Renewed self-empowerment will enable you to give up the habit for good.*

Be Motivated to Lose Weight for Summer with Hypnotherapy

lose-weightThe arrival of Spring often brings a determination to get fit and trim down ready for the Summer holidays. It also may also prompt the realisation that it won’t be as easy to cover up the extra inches that have been disguised under layers of thicker clothing. As with the good intentions of New Year resolutions this can be an excellent time to seek help to lose weight with hypnotherapy.*

Rest assured that you can’t be made to do something against your will while under hypnosis and if you truly want to succeed, with increased self-motivation, positive changes can be made and maintained.* Hypnotherapy is completely natural and you will be relaxed and in complete control throughout the sessions at the Conway Practice. Jonathan Conway will talk through your reasons for wanting to be slimmer. Perhaps this is for health reasons and you may have been advised by medical practitioners to lose weight before an operation. This can be difficult to achieve without support, especially if there is added pressure to reach a target within a specific time period.

You might of course simply want to look trimmer and feel more confident. Diets may have been tried and proven to be a failure, or only have made a difference in the short-term. During hypnosis your relationship with food will be addressed. Hypnotherapy for weight loss gives the opportunity to focus on what triggers the need to eat too much of the wrong foods.* Some people overeat for comfort during times of stress, or others for pleasure eating as a form of self-reward, but rarely due to hunger. Perhaps food wasn’t always plentiful during childhood and the subconscious stores the distant memory of looking forward to rare treats. When you feel down, these treats which are generally high sugar and high fat, briefly lift your spirits, but then are likely to leave you with a feeling of guilt for over-indulging.

In order to give to back the control over food, rather than food controlling you, during hypnotherapy sessions Jonathan will help you to deal with any stress and anxiety that may be the cause of your negative eating patterns, increasing your confidence to achieve your desired weight.*

Achieve More With Personal Development Coaching*

self-esteemThere are often times for all of us when we reach a crucial crossroads in life and feel that we would benefit from guidance. Jonathan Conway provides life coaching for personal development, helping you to take the right direction that will open up new options and opportunities*. It’s easy to become stuck in a rut in a situation where you feel you are unable to achieve your true potential. Perhaps you are unaware of how much more you are capable of due to a lack of confidence and low self-esteem.

Life coaching closely examines not only how well you are performing in your professional life, but also assesses whether you would benefit by making changes in how you manage personal relationships. You may have goals in mind but are unsure how these can be obtained, or how best to approach what you consider to be obstacles that have been holding you back. Personal development with NLP at the Conway Practice in Harley Street, helps you to focus on the positive, re-programming any negative thoughts which may be restricting your personal growth and progress*.

You may be disillusioned with the career choice you made a long time ago and your expectations may be very different now. Discontentment will have a negative affect in all areas of your life.  It’s common to continue along a path if you have been conditioned to believe it’s too late to take a different direction, but you should be aware that self-empowerment is within you.

If you have lost sight of your future goals and need guidance to increase your motivation and become more focused, personal development coaching will put you back on the right track.* It will help you to improve relationships and feel more fulfilled, both personally and professionally.

Help to Pass Your Driving Test with Hypnotherapy*

exam-stress-brightonYou may be a competent learner driver, but find that you become so nervous under exam conditions that you are unable to pass your driving test. You might even put off booking your test as you’re convinced you will fail. Exam stress is often due to a lack of self-confidence and a feeling that you are being judged by someone who will think less of you. This may not simply be concern over the examiner’s opinion, but also the opinion of family, friends and whoever has been teaching you to drive.

During hypnotherapy sessions at the Conway Practice in Brighton you will be guided in relaxation techniques, reducing stress levels.* Jonathan Conway will help you to recognise exactly what triggers your anxiety and why you may find all test environments threatening.* Perhaps this can be traced back to a school room situation, where while your peers sailed through the exams without a problem, your mind froze purely through nerves, even though you were well-prepared.

Hypnosis is considered to be an excellent way to change your automatic negative response to one of confidence and self-belief.* Instead of imagining how you will feel if you fail, positive visualisation will create an impression of how good success will look. Overcoming pressure and feelings of panic will leave you free to achieve everything you are capable of, even more than you may have imagined.* Hypnotherapy can help with all forms of exam stress, including preparation and presentation during interviews.* It will also increase motivation during study and revision.* Jonathan will coach you in how to remain focused, calm and in control before your driving test or when sitting any other exam. The same principles can be applied during all times of stress, using deep relaxation.

Hypnotherapy will enable you to make positive changes in your life wherever you feel you would like to achieve more.* Self-awareness and a higher self-esteem has the potential to open new doors and reach goals that may have previously seemed unobtainable.*  Call Jonathan Conway today on 01273 540425

Resolving a Fear of Public Speaking with Hypnotherapy

public-speaking-brightonAre you someone who becomes anxious simply at the thought of engaging with people who you don’t know very well? If so, you are certainly not alone. It’s very common to have concerns about how you will cope in social situations, especially if it involves being the centre of attention. A fear of public speaking is generally related to a social anxiety disorder, which is also a social phobia. We all know people who are shy and introverted, but for some this shyness can become distressing and very difficult to cope with.

Jonathan Conway has helped many who have problems with speaking in public with hypnotherapy and NLP at the Conway Practice in Brighton.* Time is spent on uncovering the layers of distant memories buried in the subconscious, focusing on when the phobia first began to develop. There may now be specific situations that trigger the recall of past experiences, which result in a feeling of panic and a ‘fight or flight’ rush of adrenalin. These easily forgotten and overlooked issues that are the root cause of the problem may be tiny and seem insignificant, but need to be resolved.

Social anxiety can be extremely self-limiting, not only affecting your relationship with friends and family, but also professionally. Presenting to authority figures in an interview or during meetings with colleagues and clients, can be a daunting experience. This may not be limited to speaking in front of others and some may find eating or drinking in public extremely uncomfortable and will find excuses to avoid parties and other social gatherings even though they feel they are missing out.

The state of hypnosis is similar to being in a daydream, where your mind is relaxed and responsive. You have probably experienced times when you’ve been a passenger on a train or driving a car and although remaining in control throughout, reacting normally to what’s going on around you, when you arrive at your destination you remember virtually nothing of the journey. Hypnotherapy is completely safe and medication-free.

Hypnotherapy and NLP will help you to find greater freedom, putting you back firmly in control and able to achieve far more, confidently and calmly.*  For more information please call Jonathan Conway on 01273 540425

Control Your Weight with Hypnotherapy*

Hypnotherapy for weight loss.Are you someone who constantly struggles to maintain your ideal weight? Perhaps you have tried an assortment of diets and found none of them to be effective in the long term. Losing weight with hypnotherapy has a different approach; it addresses your relationship with food and why you are not in control of how much or what you eat. 

At the Conway Practice in Harley Street, Jonathan Conway will explore the reasons why you may be overeating or are have a compulsion to eat the wrong foods, leading to a weight gain. These habits may have started as far back as childhood, being influenced by parents and often by the eating patterns of adults in the household, passed from one generation to another. You might have been led to believe that your growth and even survival relied on you finishing everything on your plate. These distant memories buried in the subconscious, form the foundation for the development of future eating patterns.* Unhealthy sweets and snacks offered as an incentive or a reward for good behaviour, will continue to trigger an automatic response during times of stress or low spirits, causing a desire for ‘comfort’ food.

When presented with large portions, adults as with children will tend to eat more than they really need. During hypnotherapy sessions you will come to appreciate why you are compelled to eat even when you are not hungry and why your emotional level draws you towards ‘forbidden’ foods.* The pattern of yo-yo dieting is common, with fad diets generally failing to provide a sustainable solution to losing weight and maintaining that weight loss. If stress or boredom are a cause of out of control eating then hypnotherapy can help to resolve the problem.* You will learn to recognise why you may eat compulsively and overindulge to lift your mood, which rapidly results in guilt or regret soon after.*

Using hypnosis, you will be able to let go of the negative thoughts that have led to self-sabotage and visualise how you will look and feel once you are finally in complete control of your weight and well-being.*
