Conquer a Fear of Public Speaking with Hypnotherapy in Highgate*

Hypnotherapy help you overcome your fear of public speakingMost 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.

Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss in Highgate, North London*

The Conway Practice - Hypnotherapy for weight lossIf you are one of the many serial dieters switching regularly from dieting to a rapid return to bad eating habits, you may have come to appreciate that this isn’t the solution to maintaining a healthy weight. Quick fix or fad diets aren’t sustainable in the long-term and once the target weight has been reached for an upcoming event such as a beach holiday or a social celebration, it’s easy to slip back into old eating habits. Hypnotherapy for weight loss in Highgate at the Conway Practice takes a different approach by enabling you to understand your relationship with food and how the underlying issues can be resolved.*

What can you expect during a session in hypnotherapy? Hypnosis is very similar to a daydream, where you are only vaguely aware of your surroundings but still remain in complete control.* In this relaxed state, while the mind is far more open to positive suggestion and is free of distraction, Jonathan Conway will gently guide you to recall memories of events or influences held deeply in the subconscious which are now negatively impacting on your relationship with food.*

What does food mean to you? Is it a form of comfort or reward, a reminder of childhood and a family environment in which you first learned how much and what to eat and continues to dominate your eating habits? There are likely to be particular prompts for mindless snacking with no conscious awareness of how much is being consumed. Stress can affect preferences for high calorie and sugary food and is often a trigger to overeating.  Once you have entered the state of hypnosis while your mind is more receptive to making beneficial behavioural changes, Jonathan will give verbal suggestions which can be absorbed to improve self-esteem and motivation, reducing stress and anxiety.* Hypnotherapy in Highgate, North London provides a safe solution for losing weight with the long-term benefit of healthy lifestyle changes.*

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.*

Overcome a Fear of Flying & Other Travel Phobias with Hypnotherapy*

fear-of-flying-brightonAre 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.*

Help to Control Your Weight With Hypnotherapy*

The Conway Practice - Hypnotherapy for weight lossIf you are finding it difficult to control your weight, you first need to understand what is triggering a need to overeat or to be attracted to the wrong foods. Hypnotherapy for weight loss addresses the various reasons why food has become a negative issue in your life, helping you to resolve what may have been a long term struggle to lose weight and to maintain the weight loss.*

If you were to keep a diary you would no doubt find that your poor eating habits follow a distinct pattern. You may eat through boredom when you’re looking for stimulation and when this happens to be provided by food, often of the unhealthy and fattening variety, it may well give you a feeling of self-reward and briefly make you feel better. If you are trying to lose weight however, this lift in spirits is likely to be swiftly followed by a feeling of guilt or regret. Your relationship to food may have been formed very early in life and much depends on the eating habits within the family home. You might find that you now eat for comfort to satisfy your emotional hunger when you’re not actually physically hungry.

Dieting is often something of a roller coaster ride with highs rapidly followed by lows, leaving you disheartened when you’ve failed to achieve the weight loss you had hoped for. If you have low self-esteem you may become easily discouraged and feel that if you don’t like yourself, others will also think less of you despite their reassurances. Hypnotherapy for weight loss can be extremely effective by helping you to recognise how misguided you are in assessing your worth.* Do you overeat due to loneliness or when you are stressed and anxious? While you are in a relaxed stated of hypnosis, you will be able to bring your true feelings to the surface that may have remained deeply buried over a long period of time.*

During hypnotherapy sessions at the Conway practice, Jonathan will take the time to talk to you about any personal issues that may be inhibiting your attempts to manage your weight.* You will be able to look at food differently and have a far more positive and healthy approach to your eating habits, putting you back in control both physically and emotionally.*

How Hypnotherapy can Help you to Give Up Smoking in Highgate*

hypnosis to stop smokingAre you a smoker who constantly says that tomorrow will be your last day of lighting a cigarette, but that day somehow never comes? Quitting the habit can be very tough on your own, but hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Highgate provides a safe and natural way to stop smoking.*

Firstly, you must be totally committed to giving up and pressure from family or friends alone is unlikely to motivate you into becoming a non-smoker if you’re only doing it to please others. During hypnotherapy sessions, Jonathan will determine why you want to stop and how you see yourself once you are free of the habit.* Perhaps you want to be healthier and more active, or are simply fed up with wasting money on cigarettes that could be spent on something far more enjoyable and worthwhile.

Visualisation while under hypnosis can be very powerful and is a similar state to daydreaming, enabling your subconscious mind to respond and recreate the positive images later as reality.* A successful sports person doesn’t see themselves as a loser; they only visualise crossing the winning line and positive thoughts will result in positive actions. Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking by getting to the root of why you smoke and what made you start originally.* Smoking isn’t simply an addiction to nicotine, it’s also an habitual behaviour.* If the reason is due to anxiety, then Jonathan will show you how to relax during stressful situations and to find your ‘peaceful place’, eliminating any negative thoughts and imagery.* These deep relaxation methods can also be used to help you through any withdrawal symptoms.*

Perhaps you have been using a cigarette as a prop to make yourself appear more confident and in control in professional or social situations. This can often stem back to adolescence when trying to fit in with the crowd and impress peers who were smoking.* During hypnosis in Highgate your subconscious mind can be retrained to eliminate unfounded fears, remove unhelpful beliefs and increase confidence and self-worth.* If you are truly committed to giving up smoking, hypnotherapy can help you to achieve that goal.*

Hypnotherapy in Highgate Can Help Overcome a Fear of Public Speaking*

public-speakingIt may come as a surprise to know that an estimated three out of four people have a speech anxiety. If you feel that you are being held back from achieving your true potential and enjoying life to the full due to this phobia, hypnotherapy at the Conway Practice in Highgate can help with a fear of public speaking*.

Hypnotherapy will enable you to speak with confidence whenever you are required to converse with others*.

‘Public speaking’ covers a multitude of situations, from a one-to-one conversation to presenting to a large audience. Identifying the source of your anxiety and getting past your fear is the first stage towards building your speaking and presentation skills*.

Often the root cause can be a fear of rejection, from something as simple as recalling a bad experience in the classroom or amongst peers. Perhaps in the past you feel your ideas have been criticised and you now dread a similar response. You may be afraid that you will ‘dry up’ when you start to speak and be unable to say anything at all. This is typical of ‘stage fright’ where the performer knows every word of the script but becomes frozen with fear.

Glossophobia, the fear of public speaking can adversely affect so many areas of life. On a career level, job seekers experience pre-interview nerves and executives may find it difficult and inhibiting to present their proposals at board meetings or to clients. Even social events can be spoiled if the anxiety extends to meeting someone outside of the normal circle of friends and the ‘comfort zone’.

So how can hypnotherapy help for speech anxiety?  During sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Highgate, hypnosis and NLP will be combined*.

You will be shown relaxation response and positive visualisation techniques* which you will be able to continue later on your own.

Relaxation is opposite to the ‘fight or flight’ response and reduces the adrenalin rush triggered by fear. Self-hypnosis can be practised at any time when you find yourself in a stressful situation*. The power of your own sub-conscious mind will be used to develop a more positive way of thinking, ensuring that with improved self-confidence there will be no missed opportunities or emotional distress due to a fear of speaking in public*.
