Manage your Anxiety and Stress, Sleep Better and Feel More Relaxed
Symptoms of stress and anxiety
You are irritable
Excessive thoughts that spiral
Lack of appetite
These are just some of the symptoms of anxiety however, after your first session with me you will feel relaxed, have tools to put you in control and you will feel more confident and hopeful about your future. You will be able to think more clearly, sleep better and enjoy better health and improve your relationships with others too.
You might even have been told that you were born anxious or that you get it from your mother, father or your aunt, but you haven't. Your anxiety has been learned over time to help you cope or avoid things. And because it has been learned, it can be unlearned. All you need is a commitment to make changes to the way you usually do react.
There are many different ways people experience anxiety such as general anxiety disorder, panic attacks, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder and specific fears or phobias. Anxiety levels can go from worry to a feeling of panic.
Stress and anxiety is a natural response which helps us cope in a short term emergency, however, problems occur when your stress response is going off all the time. The results of excessive stress can lead to migraines, skin complaints, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic pain and other anxiety disorders.
The stress response can have a profound effect on everyday life and so this is where i can help you gain back control.
The cost of Hypnotherapy for anxiety is £60 per session.
Lose Weight and Feel Happier and Healthier
Do you struggle to lose weight and keep it off or even get started in the first place.
Have you tried all the diets and slimming plans out there, lose a little bit of weight then put it back on again.
Do you find yourself constantly snacking, feeling guilty about eating a chocolate bar or biscuit or feeling down because the amount of weight you have to lose seems just too much.
If this sounds like you then maybe hypnosis is the right approach for you. I offer a four week weight loss package to help you develop the right mindset to reach your goals. We work together looking at why, where and when you eat as well as limiting believes and old stories that may be holding you back.
Over the weeks that you are with me you will begin to lose weight or inches as long as you do your homework and listen to the recordings that i give you which consolidate our sessions.
People often wonder why i offer a weight loss package.
I have found that people who book a complete package are more likely to succeed with their weight loss goals rather than booking just one or two sessions. This is an investment in your wellbeing and future health.
Using a combination of Hypnotherapy, CBT and NLP you can empower yourself to make better choices regarding lifestyle changes and food. You will find that you can change and reprogram old patterns of negative thinking. Imagine how you will feel when you discover your waist again, or being able to go to the shops and fit into the clothes you are trying on. It is so worth it.
There are no diets with your weight loss hypnotherapy because if you deprive yourself of what you like, then chances are you will go back to your old eating habits. I can help you find a more balanced approach to eating food. It is not the end of the world if you have something unhealthy from time to time. As long as you have made sensible changes to your eating habits and you add a little bit of exercise then you Will lose weight.

Hypnotherapy is a natural way to stop smoking and there is no need to use patches, gums or vapes.

Hypnotherapy works by changing the way you think about smoking cigarettes and establishing the reasons why you want to stop. During your treatment, you will be put into a deeply relaxed hypnotic state so that your subconscious will be receptive to suggestion.
Hypnosis for quitting works best when you are committed to stopping the habit. So ask yourself this question: Am i 100% ready to become a non-smoker?

The cost of the one session Stop Smoking Therapy is £150
This may seem a lot of money but many people i see smoke between 10-20 cigarettes a day. So if an average pack of cigarettes costs around £10.00 and you smoke at least 10 a day. You would spend on average £40 per week. That's £160 per month and a massive £1,900 per year. You would also feel better, smell better and look better too. Especially at work, meeting people and socialising. You would easily recoup the cost of the therapy and instead of burning the money, you could go on holiday, save or buy something special for yourself.
Manage Chronic Pain and Live Life to the Fullest
Chronic pain comes in many forms and is usually caused by an injury or condition such as...
*Chronic fatigue syndrome
I had suffered from sciatica for many years and so the pain became a normal part of my life. However, a couple of years ago i was a volunteer for the OldPain2Go methodology and i was surprised at how much more energetic and alive i felt when i was able to turn off the pain. I also didn't realise how sapping and limiting my sciatica had become. I am now trained as an OldPain2Go Practitioner and i can help you reassess the need for old, persistent, chronic pain.
Like me, you will already know that pain can affect every part of your life, but what would it feel like to reduce or switch off that old pain?
Let me explain a bit about Steven Blakes OldPain2Go Methodology.
Pain is a message from the brain which lets us know that something is wrong or injured. After a period of healing the pain naturally reduces and goes as the body heals. But sometimes the pain message can remain on the 'on' position long after an injury has healed causing us to have persistent, chronic pain. OldPain2Go can help with conditions such as Arthritis, Sciatica, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and joint pain.
Our body is a miraculous creation so much so that if we injure ourselves our brain alerts us to the problem by giving us pain. This is so that we know something is wrong. Have you ever sliced bread and accidently cut yourself? Or been too close to a heat source such as a flame? Or lifted something far too heavy and pulled a muscle in your back? If you have then you would have immediately been alerted to the danger so that you could take appropriate action. Appropriate action maybe putting your hand under a cold tap, removing yourself from danger or seeing a medical practitioner.
After a period of time the body heals and the discomfort or pain messages become less and less. This is the normal process of how the body heals. However, sometimes pain messages can become trapped and the brain may keep sending the pain message when there is no need to.
The OldPain2Go Methodology uses a process called Brain Bargaining where i can help you to reassess the need for old pain messages so that you can greatly reduce or let go of it. There is no hypnosis or trance involved, just me talking to you. And you don't have to believe the process will work, you just need to Want to be pain free and not have more need to keep pain than to lose it.
You can visit the link below to find out more about OldPain2Go.
Treatment outcomes and number of sessions vary from person to person. Usually 1-2 sessions are all that is needed.
If you are ready to let go of old pain then call me to find out more and book your session. You must have already seen a medical professional before commencing this therapy.
The cost of OldPain2Go is £80 for a 90 minute session.
Subsequent session if needed is £60
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the name given to a collection of symptoms which affect the digestive system. Although the exact cause of IBS is unknown it has been linked to stress, family history, food passing through the gut too fast or too slowly. IBS can be uncomfortable, distressing and can affect your enjoyment of life.
The National Institute for Clinical and Care Excellence (NICE) lists hypnotherapy as one of the treatments to help with IBS.
Symptoms of IBS include:
Abdominal cramps, often relieved by going to the toilet
Frustrated defaecation (needing to go to the toilet but not being able to)
Heartburn and indigestion
Needing to pass urine frequently
Fears and Phobias
Do you have a fear or phobia that is stopping you from living your life to the full?
Fear is a natural response we all have to protect us from danger. It’s our natural survival instinct which is designed to help us avoid and escape threatening situations. About 11% of the population have experienced a fear or phobia during their lives.
Phobias, however, are different to fears as they are more intense and can lead to panic attacks and severe anxiety.
The most common things that hypnotherapists see people for are:
Fear of flying
Fear of snakes
Fear of Heights
Fear of dogs
Many fears and phobias exist in our subconscious mind and are learned responses, usually from an experience we have had earlier on in life. And because they are learned responses, they can be unlearned. Hypnotherapy can help you unlearn the fear response, build up your exposure to the phobia and help you ease the anxiety that you feel around the situation.
The number of sessions required for treating fears and phobias differs from person. Some people are helped after 2-3 sessions and some people with more deep routed fears may take a little longer.
