Overcome a Fear of Speaking in Public with Hypnotherapy*
You may have the pre-conception that a fear of public speaking is only confined to communicating with a large audience. In fact this can be a common anxiety even in a one-to-one situation such as an interview or presenting to a higher level of authority in the work place. This fear of public speaking is considered to be one of the most common phobias, but help to overcome this is available with hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice.*
During sessions in hypnosis combined with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Jonathan will talk through your fears and identify the root cause of your speech anxiety.* In the past you might have had an unsettling experience when speaking in front of others which has remained deep in your sub-conscious, resurfacing when you find yourself in similar situations. You may now be afraid that whatever you say will be judged and adversely affect how people think of you. This can severely limit progression in a career if you find presentations and interviews difficult to handle calmly and with confidence.
Although you may frequently do everything you can to resist being in the role of the speaker, you will no doubt have found that at times this may be unavoidable. For anyone who fears speaking in public, holding the responsibility of giving a speech at a wedding reception or other social gathering can spoil the enjoyment of the celebration. Hypnotherapy will enable you to manage your stress and focus on your audience rather than your own negative thoughts.* Jonathan will talk you through relaxation, deep breathing and coping techniques which will make you feel more comfortable before your begin to speak.* These are powerful tools in reducing anxiety and limiting the associated physical reactions.*
Hypnotherapy and NLP can help you to visualise yourself as a competent speaker who is able to captivate and hold the full attention of the audience.* Giving a presentation can then become a pleasant experience instead of something you dread.*

Help to Control Your Weight With Hypnotherapy in Harley Street*
Do you want to lose weight but find it an uphill struggle? Hypnotherapy can help you with your weight loss safely without the need for potentially harmful slimming pills and supplements.* Hypnosis awakens the subconscious mind where your memories and past experiences are stored, leaving it open to positive suggestion.* During a hypnotherapy session at the Conway Practice in Harley Street, Jonathan will help you to change any negative association you have with food, identifying both the specific problem and the solution to maintaining your ideal weight.*
Your relationship with food may well have been formed over a considerable length of time, even though you might have no conscious recall of when this first began.
In the past you could perhaps have experienced food deprivation or at the other extreme have grown up within a family where excess food was given as a form of comfort or reward. In adult life you may now associate eating with emotional stability under the misconception that this will make you feel better. You will no doubt have discovered however that any lift in mood is rapidly followed by a low, often with feelings of guilt that you have overindulged or broken your resolve to lose weight.
While your subconscious mind is receptive during hypnosis, Jonathan will help you to recognise the triggers to your negative eating habits.* This may be a combination of factors, including lack of self-worth, stress and anxiety or boredom. Overeating is rarely a result of physical hunger. Hypnotherapy in Harley Street will enable you to focus on your weight loss goal with a clearer understanding of how you can make better food choices, resulting in a healthier lifestyle and improved fitness.*

You may find it difficult to share the responsibility with colleagues, fearing they will think of you as inadequate, leaving you to feel you are carrying the burden on your own.

Why Hypnotherapy in Harley Street can Help you to Stop Smoking*
If you are finding it difficult to stop smoking it’s important to recognise that nicotine dependence alone isn’t the root cause of the problem. Smoking is a psychological habit as well as being a physical addiction to a harmful substance.
Hypnotherapy in Harley Street can help you to give up smoking by discussing why you feel the need to smoke.* Jonathan will explain how you can change your way of thinking, enabling you to imagine yourself as a non-smoker.*
The reasons why you smoke now may be quite different from what caused you to take up the habit originally. It’s common to sample the first cigarette during the teenage years when smoking seems to be something of an adventure or forbidden. Role models within the family may have been smokers and following their example would have seemed acceptable. Even as an adult you may now continue to mirror your friends or family if they smoke, making it all the more difficult to stop.
During the hypnosis stage of the consultation Jonathan will help you to improve your self-control and motivation, enabling you to resist the negative influence from others who may doubt your ability to succeed in breaking the habit.* Understanding why you smoke will enable you to recognise the triggers and overcome your cravings. The nicotine dependence is relatively short-lived; it’s the hand to mouth habit which needs to be managed. If you find that you light a cigarette while you are anxious, hypnotherapy will identify any underlying emotional issues, helping you to reduce your stress levels with new coping strategies including relaxation techniques.*
If you are fully committed to stop smoking, hypnotherapy can be the most effective and natural way to be free of the habit, usually after a short period of time.*

How Hypnotherapy can help with your Wedding Speech Anxiety*
If you are expected to give a wedding speech and are one of the many who have a fear of public speaking, the challenge may seem daunting. You may already have feelings of panic at the thought of how you will perform on the day in front of all the guests. Speech anxiety is often caused by the concern that others will judge you and think of you as a failure. This is a common fear experienced as stage fright by many performers every time they face their audience. Hypnotherapy at the Conway practice can help you to overcome your fear and increase your self-confidence, enabling you to feel calm and in control both before and during your presentation.*
The Greek origin of Glossophobia is literally translated as a ‘tongue fear’ and people with this anxiety often say they become tongue-tied when speaking in front of other people, even if they are among friends. If you have the responsibility of giving a speech at a wedding, being the centre of attention even for a few short minutes may trigger the early warning system in your subconscious recalling a negative incident in the past. Your fear of speaking in public may well stem from the belief that what has happened before will occur again.
Hypnotherapy provides a safe and natural way to calm your nerves, without the need for medication.* Jonathan will help you to identify the negative memories that are triggering your feelings of panic and anxiety. While you are in the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis, deep-rooted negative beliefs and mind-set can be replaced, resulting in a greatly improved response when faced with situations which call for you to speak in front of others.* With this increased sense of confidence you will be able to deliver your wedding speech clearly and calmly and enjoy the celebration.*

Help to lose weight with hypnotherapy in Harley Street*
If you want to succeed with your weight loss, crash dieting with your eyes focused on a date on the calendar isn’t the solution. Reaching your goal and maintaining your ideal weight in the long term is a lifestyle issue and requires a new and positive relationship with food. Hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Harley Street can help you to lose weight by guiding you through the reasons behind your negative eating behaviour.*
Poor dietary habits could have developed over a number of years, with family influences affecting your attitude to food which you are now finding difficult to change. Although the reasons behind eating the wrong foods can be complex, during sessions in hypnosis while you are deeply relaxed, these issues can be identified and addressed.* When you are overeating your hunger may not be physical, but an emotional need for comfort. Hypnotherapy can help you to deal with the deeper feelings stored in your subconscious mind which may be limiting your self-worth and confidence.*
If you turn to food when you are bored or anxious, as with any compulsive behaviour which has formed over time this can be difficult to break. Perhaps you don’t feel that you have the support of family and friends to reach your target. If you have low self-esteem you may find yourself sabotaging your weight loss programme simply because you can’t visualise yourself achieving your desired size. Jonathan Conway will discuss the underlying reasons for these negative thoughts and how you can regain control of your eating habits and focus on reaching your goal.
Hypnotherapy in Harley Street will increase your motivation to be free of any emotional triggers to overeating and form a positive relationship with food, enabling you to practice mindful eating and enjoy a healthier lifestyle.*
Get Help for a Fear of Public Speaking with Hypnotherapy*
If you are someone who is trying to cope with a fear of speaking in public, the Conway Practice provides help to overcome this with hypnotherapy.* Speaking in public isn’t necessarily limited to addressing a large audience and anxiety can also be a triggered when presenting ideas and reporting to a small group of people or even on a one-to-one basis.
Hypnotherapy can help with a fear of public speaking by enabling you to recognise the source of the problem.* It could well be traced to an incident in the past which you may not even consciously recall. The subconscious mind can store negative thoughts which surface when you find yourself in a similar situation and fear that you will experience a repeat reaction. You may be afraid that you will let yourself down and others will judge you badly. This could relate as far back as childhood when you were called to speak in the classroom and were chastised by tutors or ridiculed by your peers.
Stage fright is a good example of when a fear of public speaking can become overwhelming. Adrenalin is raised in a fight or flight reaction when faced with performing in front of an audience, with acute anxiety about how people will react when you speak. You may be called to deliver a speech at a wedding or other social celebration and are anxious about how you will get through it on the day, concerned about forgetting your lines or the words simply drying up in front of everyone. This fear can also limit how well you are able to present yourself during an interview or when communicating with work colleagues, negatively affecting your career progression.
During hypnosis Jonathan will show you calming methods to enable you to relax not only during your presentation, but also while you are preparing to speak.* You will be able to visualise a positive outcome and erase any negative thought patterns that have been reducing your self-belief, enabling you to speak with confidence.* For more information call Jonathan Conway today on 01273 540425
Quit Smoking with the Help of Hypnotherapy in Harley Street*
There are various reasons why someone may want to stop smoking and there is often more than one deciding factor that strengthens the resolve to finally give up the habit. If you are a smoker and are determined to quit, hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Harley Street can help you to achieve your goal.*
You may have been advised by your medical practitioner to quit smoking for health reasons and have been given a specified time in which to do so. The affects of nicotine withdrawal can be unpleasant but this is relatively short-lived in comparison to letting go of the actual habit of smoking, especially if you’ve been a long-term smoker. Hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway provide help to deal not only with the physical aspects, but also with the deeper sub-subconscious reasons why you may have found it difficult to stop smoking in the past.*
While under hypnosis, you can’t be forced to do anything against your will and despite pressure you may be under from friends or family to give up the habit, the commitment must come from you. Jonathan will help you to understand the emotional triggers that prompt you to light a cigarette.* These may occur when you are anxious and you feel that smoking will reduce your stress levels, however briefly. Hypnotherapy is an effective and medication-free way to improve your natural coping mechanism and to manage anxiety.*
Perhaps you smoke to be accepted socially if your friends share the habit, but you have no doubt become well aware that smoking in now considered to be anti-social and you are limited to where you can gather to light up together. You may have finally had enough of standing huddled outside in the cold, or searching for an approved smoking area in an airport or workplace. Hypnotherapy can help to you stop smoking and change a negative perception you may have held since adolescence that you are only accepted by others if you mirror their habits.*
While under the relaxed state of hypnosis, your self-motivation to give up smoking can be strengthened, enabling you to visualise how much healthier and wealthier you will be as a non-smoker.* Call today on 0207 467 8460
Overcome a Fear of Flying & Other Travel Phobias with Hypnotherapy*
Are your family and friends planning their Summer holiday abroad and you are simply too afraid to contemplate getting on an aeroplane to travel with them? Hypnotherapy can help with a fear of flying by dealing with the deeper reasons for your phobia.* Contrary to what you may believe, the core problem may not be worrying that the aeroplane will crash. It may be more related to a fear that you won’t be in control during the journey and that you will be putting your trust in a stranger to get you safely to your destination.
You may well be experiencing a combination of phobias, including a fear of being confined in a small place for a long period of time (claustrophobia), without being able to escape should you wish to do so. This isn’t always limited to flying and can include train journeys, or being a passenger in a car where you are relying on the person in the driving seat. This anxiety may start well before the journey begins, anticipating something that may never happen. During hypnosis sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice, these negative thoughts will be addressed and traced back to incidents that may have occurred in the past.*
You might have stored negative influences deep in the subconscious originating from reports in the media of travel accidents or a graphic disaster movie, without even being aware of the affect these have had on the anxiety you are now experiencing. If you have a social phobia, your concern about sitting next to someone you don’t know during a flight without being able to move away to your own personal space is likely to trigger anxiety when you think of boarding an aeroplane.
This travel phobia can cause you to not only miss out on leisure breaks, but it can also adversely affect your career if you are required to travel as part of your professional duties. Jonathan will provide help with hypnotherapy and guide you in relaxation and stress-reducing techniques which you can apply before and during your journey to eliminate your fear.* There will be no longer be a need for air travel to signal danger.*

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.*
