How Hypnotherapy in Brighton Can Help With Your Fear of Flying

fear-of-flying-brightonAre you missing out on holidays or business trips abroad due the dread of getting on an aeroplane? You can be free of your fear of flying through help with hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Brighton.  This phobia is actually very common, with an estimated one out of ten people in the UK trying to cope with the problem, although this may in fact be even higher.

The fear may not actually be linked directly to the aircraft, but is likely to be a combination of phobias including claustrophobia, a fear of enclosed spaces. You could become anxious at the thought of being ‘trapped’ with strangers without an option to leave when you choose. Of course there is often anxiety about the safety aspect of flying, but you may be more concerned over how you will react in front of others if you panic and show that you are distressed.

However much reassurance you may get from family and friends that air travel is one of the safest ways to travel and that your fear of flying is irrational, you probably find it hard to be convinced. This is due to a ‘conditioned response’.  Anxiety is often triggered by the thought of leaving home and your ‘comfort zone’. You may find for example that you also become anxious about travelling in any situation where you aren’t behind the wheel and you are relying on someone else to get you safely to your destination.

Hypnotherapy has produced excellent results in dealing with all forms of travel phobias. If you are unsure of what to expect during the sessions at the Conway Practice, Jonathan will gently take you through the experience, with the assurance that you will remain in control and lucid throughout the hypnosis, just as if you were in a daydream-like state. You will be shown how to deal with the root cause, the trigger to your fears and how to manage them in the long term. Flying will become a pleasure to look forward to, knowing you will be completely relaxed before and during the flight with no anxious feelings about the return journey.

So much can be achieved through hypnotherapy to remove the stress and anxiety of flying and other travel phobias. No one is born with a phobia or chooses to be scared and hypnosis will liberate you from your fears, leaving you free to broaden your horizons and your experience of life as a confident passenger.

Help to Stop Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Harley Street

quit-smokingSo you want to give up smoking but you’re finding it difficult and may even believe it’s impossible. Jonathan Conway has helped many to stop smoking with hypnotherapy in Harley Street. Most importantly, you must want to quit for your own reasons, not just to please others. Giving up the habit takes a great deal of personal commitment and it should be made clear that during hypnosis, you can’t be made to do anything that deep down you really don’t want to do. You may have decided you’re ready to stop smoking due to health reasons and perhaps have even been advised to give up by medical practitioners before undergoing a surgical procedure or simply to improved your level of fitness and well-being.

If you have tried and failed in the past, you will probably have found that turning to the use of nicotine patches, e-cigarettes or by constantly chewing gum, this doesn’t solve the root cause of why you need to smoke. Props used during the withdrawal period simply replace one habit for another in the short-term, without addressing the dependency.

There are many reasons why someone becomes a smoker. Often peer pressure is a contributing factor; wanting be part of the crowd and to fit in socially. Regrettably, as with any habit that begins from a relatively young age, this can last a lifetime if you don’t know where to turn for help. You may well smoke during times of stress or anger and with the additional problem of trying to stop being stressful in itself this creates a vicious circle. You’re probably also very aware that every time you light up a cigarette, figuratively speaking your often hard-earned money is going up in smoke.

Having recognised why you have the habit, how can hypnotherapy in Harley Street help you to be free of the addiction? During the relaxed hypnotic state of mind, Jonathan will use safe and natural techniques, guiding you through a visualisation of how unpleasant smoking is and how much better you will feel once you have given up. The negative factors in your life that may be the cause of any stress will also be addressed and you will learn self-calming methods that you will be able to continue after the hypnotherapy sessions.

It doesn’t matter how long you have been addicted to smoking or how many cigarettes you smoke. Help through hypnotherapy in Harley Street will enable you to finally give up the habit once and for all.

How Weight Loss is Possible with Hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice

weight-controlIs it possible to lose weight with hypnotherapy? It has in fact, been proven to be an extremely successful method of achieving long term weight loss that is natural and safe. Hypnotherapy sessions at the Conway Practice will help you to readjust your eating habits and to have a far more positive approach towards food.

There may be various reasons why you are anxious to lose weight and the emphasis here is very much on the word ‘anxious’. Dieting can be extremely stressful, especially if you’ve tried to lose weight in the past and have failed. Feelings of anxiety about controlling the temptation to eat the wrong foods and the guilt experienced when you have over-indulged, all adds to the stress and the inner struggle of keeping to the diet.

You may feel that you are being controlled psychologically by food. Perhaps family and friends are unsupportive and insist that you are being anti-social if you don’t share their eating habits. Familial factors often play a significant part in dealing with the problem if food was treated as a means of punishment or reward during childhood. There are many factors that can influence our attitude to food and even when we eat for comfort, this is likely to have the opposite affect. Eating something that you consider to be a treat, may make you feel good in the short-term, followed by negative feelings soon after.

Hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway will prompt your unconscious motivation into losing weight. You will ‘feel’ that you want to make positive changes to your eating habits, rather than simply ‘thinking’ you do. Using age progression, you will be able to visualise a future ‘you’, focusing on not only how you will look, but also how much healthier and fitter you will feel.

During hypnosis, you will be in a relaxed but lucid state, remaining in complete control throughout. Self-defeating thought patterns that have contributed to your weight management conflict will be identified and resolved. Hypnotherapy will also help you to break the link between certain situations and settings which may trigger over-indulgence or poor food choices. You will learn to use positive self-statements, enabling you to make the lifestyle changes that will ensure you will be able to manage your relationship with food without stress and achieve your weight-loss goal.

Help for Executive Stress with Hypnotherapy & NLP

executive-coachingHave you been recently promoted as an executive or have been at this stage of your career for some time and find the pressure is taking its toll? Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming as help for executive stress at the Conway Practice has proved to be extremely successful.

You may find that you are expected to constantly perform at a high level, working long hours and finding it difficult to ‘switch off’, causing tension within your home and personal life. Anxiety caused by demands in the workplace is common and it may be difficult to turn to colleagues for help when everyone else is looking to you for direction and leadership. If you are new to responsibility, understanding how best to communicate with others, to delegate efficiently and to share ideas and projects without appearing ineffective is paramount. You need to develop good coping skills to deal calmly and effectively with issues as they present themselves on a daily basis.

Dealing with this on your own can be daunting, but Jonathan Conway will help you to manage your executive stress and create an environment where your response to challenges will be positive and effective, leaving you feeling confident and in control. During relaxed hypnotherapy sessions your subconscious mind will be refreshed with positive thoughts, focusing on self-improvement and personal development. NLP coaching will help you to understand how to communicate assertively rather than aggressively, enabling you to get the best response and co-operation from colleagues.

Feelings of dissatisfaction and stress will be replaced with increased self-esteem and motivation. Hypnotherapy and NLP will help you to appreciate how you can make time for yourself and find space in the day to wind down and relax, using techniques that Jonathan will have shown you during your coaching sessions together. Once your mind is focused and clear of negativity, you will be able to achieve so much more both professionally and personally.

Overcome a fear of public speaking with hypnotherapy and NLP

public-speakingDo you become extremely anxious at the very thought of speaking in public? We speak of ‘drying up’ during a speech and in fact a physical reaction to a psychological issue is often a dry mouth caused by anxiety. A combination of hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), has a high success rate in resolving a fear of public speaking. The dry mouth symptom can be addressed for  instance during hypnosis simply by learning a different way of relaxed breathing during periods of stress.

Reducing high adrenalin levels which naturally occur during a ‘flight or fight’ situation will also help considerably. During relaxing hypnotherapy and NLP sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice, in order to address the physical reactions the root cause of your fears will be identified, enabling you to begin your personal anxiety strategy programme. Your fear is unlikely to be limited to speaking in public and you might panic if you are expected to give a business presentation or answer questions during an interview. This may limit your progress within your career if however well you prepare beforehand, your anxious state of mind prevents you from performing to your true potential.

Although some people have had to deal with this fear since childhood, it’s also common for the problem to develop after a bad experience when a speech or a sales pitch has failed. The subconscious mind recalls the negative situation and visualises it happening again. You may find yourself doing your utmost to avoid situations where you will be expected to speak, to the extent where you steer clear of even social events where you know you will have to communicate with strangers.

Hypnotherapy and NLP will help you to feel confident and relaxed, enabling you to engage with others without worrying that you will forget your words or say the wrong thing. Once you understand how your nervous energy can be channelled into positive energy, you will be able to overcome your fear of public speaking and win your audience over.

Personal Development in Harley Street at the Conway Practice

self-esteem-brightonAs children, we are often asked “what do you want to be when you grow up?” The answer is generally a chosen job and is not always realistic; not many of us will have become astronauts or film stars! Rarely does a child say they just want to be happy, as they probably take it for granted that they will be. As adults if we are not contented with our life choices and get no enjoyment from what we’re doing, this discontentment will cause stress and frustration, with little motivation.

It’s easy to lose sight of goals and to lack the confidence needed to get back on track and achieve what you truly want in life. Personal development coaching sessions with hypnotherapy and NLP in Harley Street at the Conway Practice will help you to find a new and positive direction.

 You may feel that you are lacking in self-confidence and self-belief. If you don’t believe in your own abilities, how can you expect anyone to have confidence in you?

Jonathan Conway will help you to re-programme any negative thoughts that are holding you back. During childhood you may have been conditioned by parents, siblings or in the classroom to believe you have less potential than others. Self-esteem is how we feel about ourselves and when this is low it limits our ability to focus on positive change and development. When this increases with the help of hypnotherapy and NLP, you will be able to see your goals more clearly, move forward in your career and improve your personal life.

It’s easy to slip into the habit of spending so much time doing things for others that there may be very little left for yourself. Life coaching and personal development will show you how you can set-aside precious time doing whatever gives you pleasure and that makes you feel good about yourself. This isn’t being selfish, it will actually enhance the quality of your relationships, both personal and work-related. You will also come to recognise your strengths and weaknesses, where you will benefit from making improvements and where you can capitalise on your skills.

Hypnotherapy in Brighton Can Help Overcome Exam Stress

exam-stress-brightonAre you preparing for an exam and are concerned that your nerves will let you down on the day? The Conway Practice provides help with hypnotherapy in Brighton for exam stress. Experiencing anxiety both before and during a test is extremely common and in fact a recent NSPCC report showed that there has been a 200% increase in exam stress.

You might have studied thoroughly and actually know all the answers to the questions, but you may have a fear that your mind will go blank while you are under exam conditions. This anxiety often results in physical reactions such as panic attacks, feeling nauseous with an increase in the heart rate. This is even more likely if you are having to re-take an exam that you have failed in the past. Your sub-conscious mind will already be focusing on the negative picture of failure instead of success and achievement.

You may also be under pressure from parents, tutors or employers to do well and are concerned that you won’t live up to their expectations. Perhaps a sibling in the family is a high achiever and you believe you won’t be able to reach their level of success.

There is no need however to struggle with exams. Hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway will not only help with exam stress, your memory re-call will improve and your self-belief will strengthen. You will learn how to calm the butterflies in your stomach and the more extreme anxiety attacks.

The feeling of calm that you experience while under hypnosis can be maintained when preparing and sitting the test. Visualisation and anchoring techniques will help you to clear your mind of negative thoughts and increase your motivation to succeed.

Qualifications are often a requirement for career progression, with a great deal depending on the result. If you have been out of the classroom for some time you may find it difficult to get back into the discipline of studying again. Hypnotherapy will help you to approach exams with a focused, relaxed and confident state of mind. You will no longer perceive them to be threatening and stressful and once you believe you will succeed, then you will do well. 

 Contact Jonathan Conway today to see how hypnotherapy can help you to overcome your exam stress.

Helping You Lose Weight with Hypnotherapy in Highgate

lose-weightSummer is often the time of the year that prompts an incentive to lose weight, either for holidays or simply because it’s not so easy to cover up under layers of clothing. It’s also common to want to be more active in the sunshine. Struggling to shed the kilos can control your life, leaving you on a constant yo-yo cycle of overeating and dieting, achieving little or nothing despite your efforts.

Weight loss help with hypnotherapy in Highgate will put you back in control again, allowing you to focus on the cause instead of the symptoms.

 It’s ironic that what we call ‘comfort eating’, rarely gives a feeling of contentment for more than a short while before the guilt of overeating and a concern about weight gain sets in. Sugar addiction with its highs and lows, not only increases weight, it’s also a serious health issue, as are foods with a high fat content.

Losing weight and maintaining that weight loss isn’t simply about looking better; it’s also crucial to a fitter and healthier lifestyle.

 The stress of being overweight can be overwhelming, but help through hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice will not only relieve the anxiety, but it will also isolate the reason for your ‘difficult’ relationship with food. Hypnosis is relaxing, completely safe and medication-free. It has been shown to have excellent results in maintaining long-term weight loss.

Jonathan Conway will help you to set goals and to visualise how much better you will look and feel once you have reached your target weight. He will take you through the negative eating behaviour you have learned over the years and show you how to develop a positive attitude towards the part food plays in your life.

Once you are able to adopt a new way of thinking about food, your subconscious mind will no longer need the emotional crutch that may well be the root cause of your overeating. With hypnotherapy, your self esteem will also increase, giving you the confidence to enjoy life as you choose.

Help For Your Fear of Flying with Hypnotherapy in Harley Street

fear-of-flying-brightonAre you envious of others as they prepare to take off for a Summer holiday abroad, aware that your fear of flying prevents you from getting on an aeroplane?

This overwhelming fear may have been with you for as long as you can remember, or it could be something that has only developed recently. You might feel that despite a longing to travel, nothing and no one will persuade you to travel by air. This however needn’t continue and the problem can be successfully resolved with hypnotherapy in Harley Street at the Conway Practice.

During hypnosis, Jonathan Conway will find the trigger to the phobia as you may not be consciously aware of what causes your anxiety. It’s quite common for example to be haunted by incidents you’ve seen or read about in the news, or by disaster movies and these visions are now buried in your subconscious. Even though flying is still the safest form of travel, nothing has been able to shift those thoughts from your mind.

As a fear of flying is often a combination of phobias, while you are in the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis feelings can be released, enabling the root cause to be established. Your anxiety for instance may actually be due to a fear of losing control in front of strangers with no means of escape, or of simply being in a confined space.

Many begin to feel anxious just at the thought of being in an airport terminal, or away from home where they feel safe. 

Why let your phobia prevent you from experiencing and enjoying life as you would like to do?

Hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan will give you the opportunity to look forward to holidays with family and friends, or to travel abroad on business without feeling anxious or distressed. You will not only appreciate that air travel is safe, you will actually be able to enjoy the experience.

For more information about how Hypnotherapy in Harley Street can help you overcome travel phobia and other issues please contact Jonathan today by calling 07956 855027.

How to Overcome Your Fear of Public Speaking with Hypnotherapy

public-speaking-brightonIf you suffer from a fear of public speaking you might be surprised to know just how common this is. You may experience intense anxiety simply at the thought of presenting publicly and if so, you will appreciate how difficult it is to control those feelings and to overcome the fear. Hypnotherapy has been proven to be a great help in the dealing with this phobia.

Although the tendency is to mention an anxiety with public speaking, this fear is generally triggered at the thought of communicating in any unfamiliar situation where you are out of your comfort zone; perhaps during an interview, when taking part in a business seminar, or at a social gathering where you are mixing with strangers. Executives may find that they panic when presenting at board meetings or to important clients. Even actors who are familiar with performing in front of an audience, frequently suffer from ‘stage fright’.

It’s vital to trace the cause in order to re-programme any negative thoughts that may have been stored for a considerable time. During hypnotherapy sessions at the Conway Practice, Jonathan Conway will help you to calm your anxiety and discover where your phobia stems from. Often there is a fear of being judged badly by others, perhaps recalling an upsetting incident in the past. Just thinking about it and remembering how it made you feel is likely to bring about a nervous state of mind and tension, fearing that it will happen again when standing up to speak in front of others.

During the relaxed state of hypnosis, your subconscious mind will openly accept that these fears are actually unfounded. With a more confident mood, you will find it much easier to engage with your audience, enhancing results for example in a sales presentation, receiving a positive response when networking or socialising in a new environment. Using hypnosis a speech anxiety can be successfully overcome so that there will be no need to make excuses to avoid situations where you know you will be expected to speak. Help with Hypnotherapy for a fear of pubic speaking will ensure that progress in your career and enjoyment of your social life will no longer be restricted, enabling you to express yourself freely with far more confidence.
