How to Give Up Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Brighton*
Why do so many smokers find it difficult to stop? Of course nicotine is well known to be a powerful narcotic, causing addiction and unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, but this is only part of the problem. Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking by looking at the reason why you first started to smoke and what now compels you to continue.*
Peer pressure during the teenage years often has a lot to answer for as to why someone is attracted to smoking.* The desire to fit in with friends and appear more grown up can trigger a lifetime habit that is hard to break. Even now you may find that you are more comfortable socially with a cigarette in your hand, especially if you are with other smokers. Before the restriction on tobacco advertising was introduced, one particular brand told us that we’d never be alone if we smoked one of their cigarettes, while other brands featured attractive or celebrity couples smoking together. This implied that a smoker would find it easier to make friends, form relationships and find it easier to relax, leaving false impressions that can remain firmly fixed in the subconscious.*
While under hypnosis at the Conway Practice in Brighton, Jonathan will explore why you want to stop smoking and how you visualise your life will be improved as a non-smoker.* If you find yourself self-sabotaging your attempts to give up, is this due to not valuing yourself highly? Giving up smoking is a crucial step forward in putting your emotional and physical health first and erasing old negative patterns that you may have found difficult to change without help. Hypnotherapy will address any emotional baggage that may be stressful and the root cause of why you smoke when you are anxious.*
You will also learn how to break or the habit of smoking and of lighting a cigarette at certain situations and times of the day.* During hypnosis and NLP coaching you will understand how you are able to re-programme the association and interrupt the pattern, perhaps after enjoying a meal or when you ‘reward’ yourself while on a work break to re-wind after a difficult day. Hypnotherapy can help you to improve your willpower and strengthen your resolve to quit smoking and look forward to a healthier future as a non-smoker.*

The Benefits of Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss*
Imagine how you would feel if you could manage your weight without being a slave to dieting. At the Conway Practice, hypnotherapy for weight loss will help you to understand your reasons for overeating or why you feel compelled to eat the wrong foods.* You may be confused about why you are driven to eat more when you are anxious, lonely or bored. If you are stressed about your size, this may simply cause you to turn to food for comfort, followed by guilt and more stress leaving you in a negative cycle that is difficult to escape from.
Food has a very strong emotional connection and can be a means of showing love. This emotional link will have started from birth with nurturing from parents and your nostalgic recall of your early relationship with food will still be buried deep in the sub-conscious, either positively or negatively.* If someone close to you is a feeder, they will want to show they care by providing food often in abundance, which is difficult to refuse in fear of rejecting their feelings. Sharing food with friends and family is a form of camaraderie and of social bonding and could be called people-pleasing.
You may find that you blame others for your overeating instead of accepting personal responsibility. During hypnotherapy and NLP coaching sessions with Jonathan Conway, your desire to make other people feel comfortable even at your own expense will be discussed.* You will be able to recognise the reasons why you put the needs of others before your own, knowing that you will regret it later.*
Emotional eating for comfort or to alleviate stress may briefly lift your spirits, but it’s essential that the deeper issues triggering these self-destructive compulsions are addressed.* Losing weight with hypnotherapy can help you to take conscious control over your eating habits and prepare you for a lifetime of well-balanced, healthy eating and weight management.*

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 how what smoking means to you.

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.

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.

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.

Weight Management with Hypnotherapy in Brighton
Many people who seek help to manage their weight with hypnotherapy, do so following failed attempts at dieting which may have been affective in the short term, but are not a lasting solution to weight management.* During sessions in hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice, your relationship with food will be addressed.* There are many reasons why you may find yourself controlled by food, instead of being totally in control over what you eat and when you eat it. Hypnotherapy can help you to understand the trigger to your overeating.*
Of course there is a connection with the choice of food and the affect it has on our weight. A great deal may depend on your parents’ eating habits while you were growing up and the eating routine within the family is likely to continue later in life as this is what is naturally perceived as normal.* A child who is forced to clear everything on the plate whether they feel full or not may well carry this subconsciously into adulthood, eating despite not being hungry.*
Compulsive eating is likely to occur during times of boredom when reaching for a snack becomes an unconscious habit that is hard to break.* Most of us find eating pleasurable and food is frequently used to cheer ourselves up if we’re feeling low or stressed as a soothing self-reward.* Comfort foods however are generally the very ones that are high in fat, sugar and carbohydrates and can all be main contributors to an expanding waistline and weight gain.*
You also may find that you eat to please others in a social situation and feel that if you don’t mirror the eating habits of the those you’re sharing a meal with, they will think less of you, or you will be the odd one out. Even with families, there may be pressure to show that you appreciate the food, by eating everything you are offered. While you are deeply relaxed under hypnosis, Jonathan Conway will help you to become aware of the reasons why you overeat or feel compelled to eat unhealthy foods.* You will be coached in relaxation techniques that you will be able to continue after the sessions whenever you need to reduce your stress levels which would have previously enticed you to reach for food.* You will have greater motivation to control your weight and your self-worth will improve, resulting in long term weight management and a healthier lifestyle.*

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

How Hypnotherapy can Help Overcome a Fear of Public Speaking*
Do 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 http://www.theconwaypractice.co.uk/hypnotherapy-in-brighton-hove/speech 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*
Who 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.*
