The Benefits of telephone and Skype Coaching*
Why choose telephone and Skype coaching? Jonathan Conway has found that some find this preferable to face to face coaching sessions at his consulting rooms for a variety of reasons. Convenience is often an important factor, with distance no longer being an issue, saving valuable time and the expense of travel.
Many find that it is easier to openly express their feelings and concerns if they are not in the same room, without losing any of the personal attention that Jonathan is able to provide to the issues they may be facing. For anyone with a busy schedule or pressing commitments, taking time out to attend coaching sessions at the Conway Practice locations may simply add to existing pressures. Telephone and Skype coaching offers the benefits of being able to relax in the comfort of familiar surroundings, without being anxious about time constraints.
Perhaps you feel that you have reached a crossroads in your life and are unsure of the best way forward. Family, friends or colleagues may not be in a position to give impartial advice, or you feel unable to share your deeper feelings with anyone close to you. It’s common for emotional issues to surface when you’re far from home, alone in a hotel room with no one to offer guidance or a solution to what is troubling you. It can simply be that you have lost sight of your goal and are unsure where your life is heading. During distance coaching sessions, Jonathan can help you to get back on track and to focus on what you want to achieve and how that can be accomplished.
Anxiety frequently limits the ability to see opportunities clearly and to put things into true perspective. Stress management plays an important role in life coaching, together with providing help to increase confidence and self-esteem.* You may have employees who you feel would also benefit from leadership coaching, especially those holding high responsibility at executive level. The confidentiality and convenience of telephone and Skype coaching ensures there is no disruption to the working day and if preferred, without fellow colleagues being aware that guidance in career and life skills is being provided.
Time zones permitted, coaching sessions with Jonathan can be scheduled from anywhere in the world, enabling you to bridge the gap between your life at present and your vision of the future.* For more information call Jonathan Conway on 07956 855027
Manage Stress With the Help of Hypnotherapy in Harley Street*
Stress for many can be overwhelming with an impact on everyday life both professionally and socially. At the Conway Practice in Harley Street help to manage stress and anxiety with hypnotherapy can enable you to deal with the pressures you have been experiencing.* The weight of responsibility and meeting deadlines or set targets in the workplace for example can be a daily occurrence, making it difficult to switch off and relax when the day ends.
This work-day stress is likely to have a domino affect, impacting on home life and limiting enjoyment in leisure activities. You may find it difficult to explain to friends and family why you have no energy or are impatient and short-tempered at times. When anxiety is constant this can result in a dependence on alcohol or medication in an attempt to cope with the pressure, but while the symptoms may be masked this won’t address the underlying issues. Stress overload isn’t simply emotional and commonly results in physical ailments such as high blood pressure, loss of appetite with poor digestion and difficulty in sleeping. Hypnotherapy can help you to re-programme any negative thoughts and worries that are stored deep in the subconscious, increasing confidence and self-worth*
During hypnosis, Jonathan will approach your concerns by uncovering the route cause of your stress and tension and identify why you have been finding this difficult to deal with.* It can be the result of feeling of not living up to everyone’s expectations and of being considered a failure, especially if you are the main provider. Hypnotherapy will enable you to deal with the stressors in your life differently by using techniques such as relaxation and positive visualisation.*
There is no one size fits all approach in managing stress with hypnotherapy and Jonathan assesses each person individually and their unique lifestyle. He will show you how to tap into your positive resources and bring them into your conscious mind, drawing on these whenever emotions seem overwhelming.*

Help to manage exam stress with hypnotherapy in Brighton*
As we approach the exam season, for anyone experiencing exam stress any test situation can cause extreme anxiety and be overwhelming. Even the anticipation of being tested may trigger an anxious state of mind, often resulting in physical reactions, including difficulty in sleeping, headaches, feeling nauseous, a rapid heartbeat and panic attacks. Hypnotherapy can help to manage exam stress by looking deeper into the psychological reasons behind your fears and the negative thoughts stored in the subconscious mind.*
At the Conway Practice in Brighton during the hypnosis session Jonathan will explain how the body’s relaxation response can be activated, strengthening your coping mechanisms and releasing your true potential.* He will also discuss what your deeper fears are when undergoing a test. It may be due to a concern that you won’t live up to expectations and will be letting yourself and others down, or believe that your future will be affected if a good result isn’t gained. Parents can often put pressure on their children to do well even from an early age, making a comparison between siblings or other family members who may be high achievers.
Hypnosis can not only be very effective in overcoming exam nerves, but in other situations such as passing a driving test or improving presentation skills during an interview.* Hypnotherapy helps to create positive change, replacing the negative fears and beliefs enabling you to visualise a feeling of confidence and a positive perception of the test environment.*

Help to Quit Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Harley Street*
If you are a smoker who is wants to quit the habit once and for all, you may need to change your attitude to what smoking means to you. Do you view a cigarette as your best friend that you are reluctant to let go, or your worst enemy that you can’t wait to see the last of? At the Conway Practice in Harley Street, during sessions using hypnosis, Jonathan will address the reasons why you smoke and what is now motivating you to stop.*
Hypnotherapy can be very affective as a help to stop smoking and is medication free and completely safe.* Smoking is an involuntary habit and you will find yourself reaching for a cigarette at certain times of the day, during work breaks, after a meal or when socialising for example. You are likely to naturally associate these situations with smoking and they become subconsciously linked. While you are in the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis, Jonathan Conway will guide you through a visualisation, enabling you to understand the trigger points which compel you to light a cigarette and how you can avoid them in the future.
Anxiety is often a major contributor and although smoking is used to reduce stress levels as a form of self-medication, the calming affect is very short-lived. The addiction to nicotine causes withdrawal symptoms and increased cravings, which in themselves are unpleasant and stressful. Using hypnotherapy, Jonathan will approach the underlying cause of your anxiety and guide you in relaxation methods and stress management, changing your reliance on cigarettes as a means of coping.
If you are truly committed, hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking and to remain a non-smoker.* During hypnosis you will be able to imagine how much fitter and healthier you will feel once you are free of the habit with significant benefits to your lifestyle and improved finances.

Help to Manage a Fear of Flying with Hypnotherapy*
Have you booked your flight and are dreading the day of travel, or are avoiding travelling by air completely, unable to face boarding an aeroplane? Help is available to overcome a fear of flying with hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice.*

A fear of flying, or aerophobia can actually be a combination of phobias and while undergoing hypnotherapy these can be easily identified and addressed.* Is your fear perhaps not due to being afraid of crashing, but a form of social anxiety where you are anxious about spending time with strangers in a situation where you will have no means of escape? It’s common for stress levels to rise simply at the thought of being in the airport terminal with crowds of people in an unfamiliar environment away from the familiarity of home or wherever you consider to be your place of safety.
For many, air travel means being not being in control over a considerable length of time and having to rely on the pilot and crew for a safe arrival. This fear is often experienced in other forms of transport where someone else is in the driving seat, such as on a train or as a passenger in a car when you are unable to get off when you choose. A travel phobia can not only severely restrict your opportunities to enjoy holidays with friends and family, but may well also have a limiting affect on your professional life if business travel is a requirement.
During hypnosis negative thought patterns and can be re-programmed, helping you to overcome suppressed emotions and phobias by replacing them with positive thoughts, resulting in increased confidence and self-belief.* Jonathan will show how you can access this calm state of mind whenever you feel the need to reduce your stress levels before and during your journey.*
With over 21 years of experience, Jonathan Conway is a highly qualified NLP Master Practitioner & NLP Coach, providing sessions in hypnosis from his consulting rooms in London and East Sussex.
How Hypnotherapy Can Help You to Lose Weight*
When facing the challenge of losing weight, this may seem to be an overwhelming task especially if previous attempts have been unsuccessful. Poor eating habits may well have started during childhood and followed the same eating pattern later in life. Hypnotherapy can help with weight loss by not only addressing your negative relationship with food, but also enabling you to increase your motivation to achieve your goal.*

During the relaxed state of hypnosis, Jonathan Conway will discuss your attitude to food and the triggers which result in overeating or compel you to eat unhealthy, weight-gaining foods.* Boredom often plays a significant part, with mindless eating as a means to pass the time, without being consciously aware of what or how much is being consumed.
For anyone with low self-esteem there may be the misconception they don’t deserve to improve their lifestyle and feel that others are justified in poorly judging them. This lack of confidence can result in self-sabotage when attempting to change eating habits if there’s no belief that you are worthy of achieving your goal. Hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice will help in implementing a step-by-step strategy to improve your self-worth and enable you to visualise how much healthier and fitter you will feel once you have a new and positive relationship with food.* For more information call Jonathan Conway today on 01273 540425 or use the Contact Form.
