Help to reduce executive stress with hypnotherapy in Harley Street*
Friends and family may believe that the solution to managing executive stress is to take a holiday. For many however who are struggling to overcome work related anxiety, downtime may actually increase stress levels when deadlines and staff performance are no longer in their control. If you find yourself in this situation, being able to fully switch off from work issues and relax can become a challenge, adding only more pressure when holiday companions resent the fact that your mind is elsewhere. Hypnotherapy in Harley Street at the Conway Practice can help to relieve executive stress by introducing new coping mechanisms and relaxation techniques.*
During hypnosis you will be guided to focus on yourself and your own well-being.* You may have set unrealistic targets in an attempt to prove that you are worthy of the role you’ve undertaken. Social and financial pressures frequently have a negative affect on performance, with the fear that others are reliant on your achievements. Living up to the expectations of those who are dependant on you can be extremely stressful. Although there maybe an outward appearance of confidence, if there is an inner lack of self-belief it can be difficult to admit that you need support from colleagues and family members.
With executive coaching, improved communication techniques and more efficient time management skills, potentially harmful stressors can be reduced and then eliminated. Hypnotherapy is a completely safe and natural way in which to manage anxiety which has become counter-productive and is undermining your natural abilities.* Jonathan will help you to regain a sense of control and motivation, establishing a far more healthy work-home life balance.*

Overcome social anxiety with hypnotherapy in Highgate*
Social anxiety is by no means limited to what is considered to be socialising situations and can be a combination of phobias, which generally present common symptoms. Any interaction with others can be overwhelming and often results in the attempt to avoid any circumstances out of the personal comfort zone. Help for social anxiety with hypnotherapy in Highgate at the Conway Practice, provides a safe and medication-free solution to overcoming this self-limiting phobia.*
What can you expect during a consultation with Jonathan Conway? Firstly, you will talk through your concerns together and how this anxious state of mind is negatively affecting your life. You may be consciously unaware of where your social anxiety stems from as past events or conditioning are often buried deeply in the sub-conscious.
During hypnosis these thoughts can be more easily accessed and brought to the surface where they can be acknowledged.* Once the anxiety triggers are recognised, social stressors can be replaced with positive coping mechanisms.*
How may a social phobia impact on your life? Although shyness to some extent may limit communication skills, it doesn’t compare to the intense feeling of fear when faced with interacting with others, or when eating, drinking or speaking in public. These are situations where you may be anxious about being judged or criticised and worried you will say or do the wrong thing. Avoiding an event due to stressing about what may happen, only increases the anxiety level and commonly results in missed opportunities and in forming meaningful relationships.
Hypnotherapy in Highgate can be beneficial by introducing new thought processes and pathways while your mind is open to positive suggestion.* Jonathan will guide you through focused breathing, relaxation and visualisation techniques which can be applied whenever stressful situations arise.* A social phobia is closely connected with your feelings of confidence and self-worth. Hypnosis can change any negative self-perception and restore emotional health, replacing limiting beliefs with a new outlook on life and the ability to approach challenges calmly and confidently.*

The Benefits of Hypnotherapy in Brighton for Weight Loss*
If this will be your first experience of hypnotherapy, you may be apprehensive about what can be expected and how affective this can be for achieving weight loss. Previous attempts to lose weight with fad diets or slimming products may well have failed, leaving you disheartened and concerned that you will never control your eating habits. Instead of dwelling on the problem, hypnotherapy in Brighton at the Conway Practice takes a different approach, by focusing on a future when you will feel much better about yourself and able to maintain a positive relationship with food.*
At the initial consultation, Jonathan Conway will take the time to listen to you; building an alliance of trust. Negative thought patterns and a reliance on food as an emotional substitute may have developed over a number of years, even from very early childhood. Recognising what food has represented in your life is the first step in overcoming poor eating habits which have contributed to weight gain.* Identifying the subconscious triggers which are responsible for excessive or mindless eating will bring about an understanding of how these can be controlled and overcome.
Environmental cues can be significant with a profound and long-term affect from social and family influences. If food has been considered as a form of reward or comfort, during hypnosis you will be guided to uncover and recognise the difference between emotional and physical hunger. Your critical inner voice may lead to a lack of self-worth and a feeling of inadequacy, with the misbelief that you don’t deserve to be fit and healthy. Hypnotherapy for weight loss in Brighton can help you to appreciate your true capabilities and to enable positive change.*
Whether you overeat due to a ‘hand-to-mouth’ habit, to reduce stress or boredom, hypnotherapy can be both uplifting and liberating, by introducing new coping-mechanisms, establishing a lifestyle change that brings long-term benefits.*

Hypnotherapy in Brighton for Help to Stop Smoking*
As a long-term smoker, giving up may seem to be a daunting challenge especially for anyone who has made attempts to stop smoking in the past and failed. At the Conway Practice in Brighton, hypnotherapy can help you to quit smoking without the need for cigarette replacements such as vaping, by reducing the urge to repeat the hand-to-mouth habit triggered by an automatic response in certain situations and at specific times.*
Although some may choose to be in denial, most smokers are aware that this is a potentially deadly addiction with a detrimental affect on health and general well-being. Although smoking is no longer seen as sophisticated or glamorous and is increasingly considered to be anti-social, this doesn’t necessarily make it easy to break the habit which has become a significant part of daily life. The craving for nicotine is by no means the only thing which needs to be overcome as the habitual act of smoking can be even more difficult to deal with. You may find yourself smoking mindlessly, unaware of how many cigarettes have been finished until you have to buy another packet.
During hypnotherapy sessions in Brighton with Jonathan, your reasons for wanting to stop smoking will be discussed.* It would be rare not to recall lighting your first cigarette or what led you to do that, but you may not be consciously aware of the reasons for continuing to smoke and the influences in your life which have made it difficult to stop. While your mind is in the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis and more open to positive suggestion, you will be gently guided to recognise the subconscious prompts which compel you to reach for a cigarette.* This may be during times of stress when you convince yourself that smoking will help you to cope better or to relax after a difficult day.
With the help of hypnotherapy, new coping mechanisms can be introduced, enabling you to recognise the reasons behind your smoking behaviour.* In the same way in which you’ve conditioned yourself not to smoke in certain situations; during a long flight or in another smoke-free zone for example, your non-conscious mind can be re-programmed during hypnosis to consider yourself as a non-smoker in all situations, even when others around you are smoking.* You will be able to visualise a healthier future where you have broken the negative cycle of addiction once and for all.*

The pressure to perform well in the corporate sector and the resulting anxiety should never be underestimated. Help to manage executive stress with hypnotherapy in Highgate is available at the Conway Practice, providing a completely safe and medication-free solution by introducing a more positive coping mechanism.*
It’s common to feel isolated when trying to cope with increasing demands to meet constant deadlines and performance targets, when turning to work colleagues may be seen a weakness and family or friends are unable to comprehend the weight of responsibility felt. Inability to share this is only likely to increase the level of anxiety, affecting both professional and personal life. As with all stress related situations, there is the risk of damage to health and general well-being, often with sleepless nights, lack of appetite or comfort eating, loss of concentration and physical symptoms such as raised blood pressure or poor digestion,
During hypnosis the source of the anxiety will be identified and a positive strategy introduced to achieve organisational effectiveness.* The aim isn’t to remove stress from your life completely, but to appreciate how to handle stress when it occurs.
In combining hypnotherapy with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Jonathan will help you to improve your communication skills to gain support and co-operation from others, without feeling incompetent.
Pressure can be motivating and rewarding if you are able to manage it well and remain in control. If however, inwardly you have low self-worth your subconscious may sabotage any career progress or sense of achievement if you don’t believe in your own ability to succeed. This may be a long held belief from early conditioning, perhaps having been compared to high-achievers in the family and now feel that you won’t live up to their expectations. Hypnotherapy with Jonathan at the Conway Practice introduces re-programming of previously held negative assumptions, together with relaxation techniques which can be applied when faced with challenging situations, opening the mind to positive thought processes and new beliefs.*

During hypnosis, your relationship with food and your eating patterns will be discussed to determine where there are issues which need to be addressed.*
Weight control isn’t simply eating less, it’s also about understanding why you are compelled to eat specific foods at certain times and to appreciate how these subconscious triggers can be controlled.
In order to develop a healthier relationship with food, Jonathan will help you through hypnotherapy to recognise any negative self-talk resulting in a roller-coaster food related lift in mood, followed swiftly by a feeling of guilt, which can have a detrimental affect on health and state of mind.* There is a difference between being physically hungry and emotional hunger, with the latter often due to stress or boredom. You may find that you associate comfort food with certain pastimes, when watching TV for example with mindless eating and no conscious awareness of how much is being consumed.
While you are in the calm state of hypnosis, diversion techniques and intuitive strategies can be introduced, replacing misbeliefs which have been stored in the subconscious from past influences.* Being conditioned to clear everything on your plate can be a hangover from childhood and as an adult you may be unaware of the internal cues of fullness, resulting in habitual overeating. Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove can help you to overcome the need to resort to comfort food by introducing new stress-relieving coping mechanisms.*

Overcoming a Fear of Flying with Hypnotherapy in Brighton*
At the time of writing, the UK is gripped in an icy Winter chill and many may be planning a holiday on warmer shores. However, for those with a travel phobia the journey is likely to be more of an endurance than an enjoyable experience. Help to overcome a fear of flying with hypnotherapy in Brighton at the Conway Practice provides an affective way in which to recognise the deeper issues buried in the non-conscious mind, contributing to the phobia.*
This intense anxiety, way beyond excitement can begin well before boarding the aircraft and often surfaces simply in the anticipation of the airport environment. Contrary to popular belief, the fear of the aeroplane falling out of the skies is often not the root cause. There is often a combination of phobias, including claustrophobia where the fear of being trapped in a confined space, unable to escape whenever you choose, can be overwhelming. This isn’t by any means related only to air travel and feelings of anxiety and panic may be triggered when faced with any journey where you aren’t completely in control, such as public transport or as a passenger in a car.
Social phobia has a negative affect on interaction with others and the inability to avoid close contact with fellow travellers can provoke the unconscious mind to believe that you are under scrutiny and may embarrass yourself if your nervous state is recognised. There may be anxiety over who you will sit next to, or if you will be unable to leave your seat during the journey. These fears can have an impact on personal relationships or in your career due to an inability to join family or friends on holiday, or attend business meetings.
While the conscious mind is relaxed during hypnosis it is open to positive suggestion and focused attention, Jonathan will help you to identify the catalyst to your fear and take you through a calming visualisation exercise. During this atmosphere of ease you will remain completely in control, similar to a pleasant day-dream. By introducing a positive affirmation and coping strategies, hypnotherapy can be very empowering, opening the way to a world of new possibilities.*

Give up Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Brighton*
Are you committed to stop smoking but don’t know how to achieve it? Help is available with hypnotherapy in Brighton at the Conway Practice, bringing awareness of the psychological issues behind your habit*. Being addicted to nicotine is by no means the only factor and withdrawal from the substance can last for a relatively short period, leaving the hand-to-mouth behaviour to be resolved.
You are likely to associate specific situations with lighting a cigarette, even when there is no physical urge for nicotine. Much depends on why and where you are conditioned to smoke and during hypnosis while the conscious mind is relaxed, Jonathan will guide you to recognise the subconscious triggers which have been preventing you from becoming a non-smoker.*
Tracing back to when you tried your first cigarette can give an indication of why the habit has continued in the long-term. If smoking was originally a reason to establish empathy with your peers this may be repeated as a form of social bonding by mirroring the habits of others. The association of sharing a cigarette during work breaks when all smokers congregate in the specified smoking area can bring a sense of rapport, even if the action is a negative one. This non-verbal interaction generally occurs subconsciously and is often a result of low self-esteem and the need to be socially accepted.
Hypnotherapy in Brighton can help you to accept your self-worth and to fully appreciate your personal value.* Unresolved emotions, including any negative response to stress and anxiety will be brought into a state of conscious awareness, introducing new coping strategies with positive visualisation of yourself as a calm and confident non-smoker.*

Conquer a Fear of Public Speaking with Hypnotherapy in Highgate*
Most people would say they have some sort of phobia and may be able to easily avoid putting themselves in a situation which would cause anxiety. However, when a phobic reaction affects the daily enjoyment of life this can become extremely stressful. One of the most common types of phobias is the fear of public speaking and contrary to wide opinion, this doesn’t necessarily relate only to speaking in front of an audience or a large group of people. Help to overcome this distress is available with hypnotherapy in Highgate at the Conway Practice, where the underlying cause can be established and negative thoughts replaced with positivity.*
You may find that you become anxious simply at the very thought of joining in with a conversation where you feel out of your comfort zone. This can be a form of a social phobia where you are afraid of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time and will embarrass yourself. Negative thought patterns may well have formed over a long period of time, with early life influences and past experiences now stored deeply in the sub-conscious. Classrooms are a prime example of environments where being pressured to speak in front of your peers can trigger a negative reaction remaining as a core belief that you are under threat from criticism.
Hypnotherapy in Highgate, North London can greatly improve your interview and presentation techniques, relieving the discomfort of physical reactions to fear, such as perspiring and palpitations or feelings of nausea.
During hypnosis the mind is far more receptive to positive suggestion and guided by Jonathan you will begin to readdress misbeliefs with positive affirmations. Perhaps negative self-talk has led you to believe that you will be judged badly on what you have to say and previous troubling incidents will continue when faced with a similar situation. This mindset can be changed with the help of hypnotherapy by focusing on an improved self image and increased motivation.
