Stress Management in Harley Street

lose-weight-brighton-hoveWith the fast pace and demands of life today it is common to experience feelings of anxiety. If this becomes overwhelming help is available for stress management in Harley Street at the Conway Practice. Through hypnotherapy sessions, Jonathan Conway will take the time to uncover the cause of your stress which may not be immediately obvious to you. Often lack of confidence and self-belief, in a work-place for example, causes feelings of anxiety over something that may even be considered a simple task. Pressure to perform to a high standard at all times can be extremely stressful but through hypnosis you can learn how to change your approach to the situation and deal with it in a positive way.

Stress that isn’t managed well in the working environment is likely to spill over into your personal life, affecting relationships with friends and family. It may also be a catalyst for unhealthy habits such as a dependence on alcohol or medication, smoking or eating disorders. If an addiction develops due to stress, giving up the habit is in itself stressful and extremely difficult without help. Hypnotherapy enables you to deal with your anxiety and the root cause, creating positive change in your life and putting you back in control.

Fears may have been buried in your subconscious for many years, perhaps even as far back as childhood. Even though those fears may be irrational, they nevertheless seem very real to you. Typically, these fears may trigger panic attacks or phobias when your thoughts cause a physical reaction to what you believe to be a threat or danger. Hypnotherapy releases these negative thoughts, allowing them to be re-tuned while you are in a relaxed state of mind. At no time are you unconscious or not in control and you will be aware of your surroundings throughout. Jonathan will help you get rid of your stress, laying a well-balanced foundation for the future.

Stop Smoking with the Help of Hypnotherapy in Harley Street

Quit Smoking with The Conway PracticeThe Conway Practice provides help to stop smoking in Harley Street. Perhaps you have made attempts in the past to give up the habit but have failed each time. You may have managed to stop for a while only to return to smoking in a stressful situation, or simply by socially sharing a cigarette with others.

It’s easy to make excuses about not giving up, but that’s often simply a sign that you’re not ready to make the commitment. Hypnotherapy in Harley Street has an excellent success rate in dealing with the addiction, but hypnosis can’t make you do anything against your will. The majority of smokers report that they do want to quit, either due to the expense or for health reasons.

Nicotine is without doubt a powerful drug and as with other drugs when the substance is active in the system you feel good and bad when it’s absent. If you smoke due to stress, it becomes even more difficult to stop when quitting is in itself stressful. However, there are many reasons why people smoke and during hypnotherapy sessions in Harley Street with Jonathan Conway he will talk through the feelings you have about your addiction, take time to understand your lifestyle and discuss why you feel you are now ready to stop.

As with all habits there is always an underlying cause. Many start while they are young, simply due to peer pressure and wanting to fit in with the crowd. Others begin to smoke during periods of stress and then find it difficult to stop even when they are no longer anxious.

Although the conscious mind is aware that nicotine is harmful the unconscious limits your self-belief and ability to stop. It is important not to see a cigarette as a reward or a treat, such as smoking during a work break or after a good meal. Through hypnosis in Harley Street the root cause of the dependence can be identified and dealt with, helping you to change your attitude and break the habit permanently. If you are ready to stop smoking the Conway Practice can help you to change the way you think about your addiction and increase your motivation to quit.

Jonathan will work with you to enable you to create positive change in your life, releasing often irrational fears that may have been buried in your subconscious for years.

Hypnotherapy in Harley Street

lose-weight-brighton-hoveThere are a wide variety of reasons why people seek help through The Conway Practice’s hypnotherapy in Harley Street service. There may be a life-limiting phobia, overwhelming feelings of anxiety and stress, or a controlling habit that is difficult to break. Jonathan Conway, through hypnotherapy sessions, is able to reach the root of the problem, identifying whether the cause is psychosomatic, psychological, or emotional.

A phobia can be a very heavy burden to carry and can totally control your life. It can be triggered initially by even a seemingly insignificant incident in early childhood which then resurfaces later in life causing a phobic reaction.

One of the most common phobias is the fear of flying (aerophobia). This however may be a combination of phobias, including a fear of enclosed spaces (claustrophobia), a fear of heights (acrophobia), or a fear of being away from home or a safe place (agoraphobia). At which point in the journey that the anxiety starts can be addressed and dealt with through relaxed sessions of hypnosis, enabling you to approach travel with a calm and stress-free state of mind.

In the fast pace and demands of life today, stress in the work-place and expectations in family life can run out of control. We are expected to deliver a high performance on many levels and you may feel that you are pressured to be almost super-human at times. This struggle to cope can result in a cycle of stress and anxiety that seems impossible to break free of, making it difficult to function well in your personal or professional life.

Hypnosis services available in Harley Street are extremely effective in reaching the deepest level, opening the subconscious where your mind has stored everything you’ve experienced in the past and is now the source of your emotions. Hypnotherapy is completely safe and is similar to a dream-like state of mind where you remain in control throughout. Jonathan will show you how you can continue to release your anxiety and relax on your own after the sessions, making a positive difference in your life.

Stop Smoking in Highgate, North London with Hypnotherapy Services

Quit Smoking with The Conway PracticeAre you looking for help to stop smoking in Highgate, North London? You may have already made several unsuccessful attempts to quit, or perhaps you are only now ready to take the first step towards a nicotine-free healthier life.

Jonathan at the Conway Practice provides hypnotherapy sessions, helping you to retrain your mind on both a conscious and subconscious level, changing your attitude to smoking. 

Not only an addiction to nicotine, smoking is also a habit and as with all habits there is always an underlying cause. You may well find that it becomes automatic to light up a cigarette at certain times; during a work-break, after a meal or morning coffee, or in a social gathering. Stress however, plays a major part in the reason for smoking and also the prevention of giving up the habit.

Even the process of stopping is stressful in itself. The conscious mind knows that smoking is harmful to health but a self-limiting belief prevents you from having the confidence to stop. 

Nicotine is a powerful drug. You feel good when the substance is active, and bad when it’s not. Surveys have shown that the majority of smokers want to give up, whether that may be for health reasons or simply because they are aware of ‘burning money’ every time they light up.

During sessions at the Conway Practice, Jonathan will take time to understand your lifestyle, discuss why you believe you smoke and why you are now ready to stop. Everyone is viewed as an individual with their own account of why they first started to smoke and how they may have tried and failed in the past to stop. Hypnosis identifies the underlying cause of the dependence and can then change your way of thinking, enabling you to reach your goal and maintain it permanently. In 1992,

The New Scientist reported that hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking. 

Hypnotherapy services in Highgate, North London can help you to increase your motivation and change your way of thinking to break your habit. If you would like to stop smoking and to learn how to remain a non-smoker, please contact Jonathan at the Conway Practice, or leave a comment below.

Hypnotherapy Can Help You To Lose Weight in London This Summer

Hypnotherapy for weight loss.Have you failed with every diet but are determined to lose weight in London this Summer? With the onset of the Summer holidays the pressure is often even greater to slim down to look good on the beach or in lighter clothing and it becomes more difficult to hide under layers of thick garments.

However, losing weight is by no means simply an aesthetic need, it also improves health and well-being. We know that the latest weight-loss plan and crash diets aren’t the solution to maintaining an ideal size. Every time an attempt to diet fails, the weight is likely to rise again, leaving you feeling even more depressed.

In order to solve the pattern of yo-yo dieting where weight is lost and soon put back on again, old habits, perhaps from childhood, must be changed.

Jonathan Conway is able to help you to change this cycle of behaviour in a natural and safe way through hypnotherapy sessions at the Conway Practice in Harley Street, Central London.

There are many contributing factors for obesity.  Hypnosis identifies unconscious feelings and motivations, tracing the root of the problem. How you viewed food as a child and how your parents or carers approached the provision of food can be very significant to the part it now plays in your life.

Food may have been given as a treat, as with snacks and sweets, or as a form of control and even punishment. Hypnotherapy can be a great help in determining how you react to food, enabling you to make positive changes.

Periods of stress often trigger comfort eating and no diet will assist in altering that state of mind. Hypnosis however is found to have positive results in eliminating this pattern of behaviour, helping you to enjoy a more fulfilled and happier life.

Hypnotherapy services in Harley Street, near to Oxford Circus will increase your motivation to change your eating habits, enabling you to focus on a healthy lifestyle.

If you would like to lose weight and maintain that weight loss, please contact Jonathan at the Conway Practice, or leave a comment below.

lose-weight-brightonWould you like to lose weight in Brighton and Hove this Summer? There are probably two main peaks in the year when people decide enough is enough and they are determined to trim down and that’s in the New Year and pre-Summer holidays. It’s accepted that crash diets or trendy weight loss plans don’t solve the problem of a failure to maintain an ideal size. Each time a diet fails and the weight increases again you feel more miserable.

In order to break the cycle of losing weight and putting it back on, it’s essential to change old habits. Jonathan Conway offers a safe and natural way to change these patterns of behaviour through hypnotherapy sessions at the Conway Practice. Obesity has many different contributing factors. Hypnosis gets to the root of the problem, identifying unconscious motivations and feelings.

These may be traced back to childhood when we are rewarded with food as a treat, especially sweets and snacks, or we are made to ‘clear the plate’ before being allowed to go out and play. Food may be a reward or a punishment and hypnotherapy can be a great help in determining exactly what role food plays in your life, enabling you to change the way you view it. 
Comfort eating for example can be triggered by stress and while no diet will eliminate that state of mind, hypnosis is shown to have positive results. Food can also be used as a form of control. By using self-control over the amount of food you eat, you will find that you can lead a happier and more fulfilled life.

Hypnotherapy services in Brighton & Hove will maximise your motivation to change eating habits and focus on a healthy lifestyle.

Hypnotherapy in Brighton and Hove, East Sussex

In the fast pace and high demands of modern life, stress-linked conditions are becoming more common and difficult to cope with. The most severe form of stress can be seen in a panic attack, when the ‘fight or flight’ response is triggered. Jonathan Conway has a wealth of experience in managing anxiety through hypnotherapy in Brighton and Hove.

Anxiety is often a matter of ‘what if’, worrying about what might happen and anticipating a negative outcome. A fear of flying for example can start to build well before the day of travel. You may find yourself avoiding activities that trigger your anxiety, limiting growth and performance in your personal or professional life.

Your subconscious or ‘inner voice’ tells you that something bad will happen to you or you will fail. Phobias and fears are often deep-rooted from childhood experiences that you may not be consciously aware of. Research has shown that around 80% of our behaviour is done without conscious thought.

Think for a moment what you’d like to change in your life.

This probably feels like a huge challenge, as you would need to change how you feel about yourself and how you believe others see you. An inability to stop smoking or a dependence on alcohol may be a form of comfort due to a lack of self-esteem and confidence. Hypnotherapy 
is extremely successful in helping to change negative thought patterns giving you the freedom to experience life as you would like to do.lose-weight-brighton-hove

A Helping Hand

Article appeared in Latest 7

Jonathan Conway, Hypnotherapist & NLP practitioner, answers your questions on changing the way you view the world.

Q. I want to run Brighton Marathon one day. Can Hypnotherapy help me perform better in sports?

A: Yes, absolutely. Using hypnosis to visualise being successful in sports is very powerful. It can also be helpful to use the anchoring techniques of NLP to help you get into a resourceful winning state and also to model success on other successful performers in professional sports.

Q. I wish I had more confidence. Can hypnotherapy make me more outgoing?

A. Yes. Hypnosis can be a careful tool in helping a person focus on the things that help them to feel better about themselves and help you to find the resources that every person has to do this. As you begin to notice your success there is likely to be a cumulative effect. In my experience confidence from the inside out is likely to be more effective and longer lasting than doing things with a short term boost in confidence. Also the more accepting a person can be of themselves the better they are likely to feel in their lives.

Q. I would love to fly abroad but have such a fear of flying after a bad experience when I was younger. Can hypnotherapy help me to overcome this phobia?

A. Flying phobias are usually connected with a past flying experience that didn’t go well such as extreme turbulence or engine failure whilst on board a flight. It is a feeling of being out of control sometimes accompanied by panic and anxiety. Hypnosis accompanied by an NLP Fast Phobia cure can help with overcoming a flying phobia and to help the person have a positive flying experience. To do this, the flying experience needs to be reframed to something more positive, in particular, the language that is used in thinking about the flying experience.

Q. Can hypnotherapy cure physical pain?

A. Pain management is a complex topic and before a non-medically trained hypnotherapist uses hypnosis for pain control it is important that the person has had a medical investigation beforehand. Once this has been done – and with a medical practitioner’s approval – hypnosis can be a powerful too in assisting with pain control. Hypnosis can help to change the perception of the pain into something more manageable and something which the unconscious mind is able to control.

Q. My new job means that I need to give public presentations. How many hypnotherapy sessions would I need to improve my public speaking performance?

A. Speaking in public is one of life’s greatest challenges and fears. Hypnosis and NLP can really assist a person to speak fluently and confidently, and to create a greater level of rapport with the audience. Even two or three sessions can make a significant and valuable change to someone’s ability to be a competent public speaker. The first task is to help the person build up some positive resources. NLP Anchoring techniques can be useful here followed by visualization and also learning a practicing self hypnosis techniques. Like all new skills it is necessary to practice and the more times you are able to do so, the easier it will be to perform well in presentations.

Q. I’m seeing a hypnotherapist to help me to kick my smoking habit. Am I going to be able to handle passive smoking after my hypnotherapy?

A. The biggest part of smoking addiction is not the physical craving but the psychological need to have a cigarette. Once the urge to smoke is replaced by other healthier and creative behaviours the person will have a sense of freedom and be in control of the unconscious urge to smoke. It is also probable that the hypnotherapist may have given some hypnotic suggestions that the person will no longer be attracted to the smell of nicotine and therefore passive smoking should not bother the person.
