Keep your New Year’s resolution to stop smoking with hypnotherapy.*
If your New Year’s resolution is to become a non-smoker, you may be concerned about how you can remain committed and achieve your goal. Trying to deal with any long-term habit can without doubt be a tough challenge and this is even more difficult when an addictive substance is part of the problem. Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking, by strengthening your self-motivation and addressing the deeper reasons why you have found it so hard to give up.*
Stress is a high contributor to continuing a smoking habit, with the misconception that cigarettes are the only option to reducing anxiety. During the hypnosis sessions at the Conway Practice, Jonathan will assist you in identifying the subconscious triggers which prompt you to smoke at certain times of the day and in specific circumstances. Understanding why you first became a smoker and why you are now ready to stop can be extremely helpful in overcoming a habit which has become part of your daily life.
It’s common to smoke during adolescence as a form of social bonding, enabling you to feel part of a group with peers who are already smoking, in the belief that this is normal ‘adult’ behaviour. The need to be socially accepted often then continues by mirroring the habits of others and sharing cigarettes in a communal smoking environment. This is a psychological addiction which can be more difficult to deal with than the physical dependence on nicotine which is relatively short-lived. Hypnotherapy can be very effective in addressing any lack of self-worth which may be limiting your natural ability to express your own personality, due to a fear of failure or rejection.*
If you smoke as an antidote to stress, hypnosis is a completely safe therapy to relieve anxiety in a natural way by re-programming any negative thought processes which have been blocking previous attempts to stop smoking.* New coping mechanisms will be introduced which will give you the motivation to finally become a non-smoker with a healthier lifestyle model.*

Help to quit smoking with hypnotherapy in Highgate*
The affects of stopping smoking aren’t simply physical; they are also psychological and emotional. Understanding the reasons behind the need to smoke can be the key to giving up the habit for good. At the Conway Practice in Highgate, Jonathan will help you to trace the origins of when you first became a smoker and why you have found it so difficult to stop. Hypnotherapy provides a natural way in which to overcome the addiction and to recognise the sub-conscious triggers to lighting a cigarette.*
You are no doubt well aware of the long term benefits of being a non-smoker and family or friends may remind you of this constantly in an attempt to persuade you to quit smoking. The true commitment must however come from you and as you can’t be made to do anything against you will while under hypnosis, the choice on whether to give up the habit remains within your control.* While your mind is relaxed and in a heightened state of awareness, negative thoughts can be neutralised and replaced with positive messages.*
Using hypnotherapy to bring about change, is beyond finding a method to give up smoking. By focusing on the habit rather than the nicotine dependence, Jonathan will guide you through a quit-smoking journey, enabling you to understand how changing your routine and avoiding the automatic prompts can diffuse the cravings.* Smoking may have become an instinctive habit as a form of social bonding with friends and colleagues and serve as a boost your self-confidence.
A cigarette can also be used as an antidote to dealing with stress and frustration, but although this may be briefly calming it doesn’t relieve the reasons for the anxiety.
With hypnotherapy, relaxation methods can be introduced, together with effective and healthy ways in which to manage stressful situations and control negative behaviour.* With a change of mindset, achieving your goal to stop smoking can be attainable.*
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.*

Managing Executive Stress with Coaching in Highgate*
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.*

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.

Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss in Highgate, North London*
If 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*

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