Although hypnosis has extremely wide applications in medicine, in this practice it is used for stress management, habit disorders and phobias, tension problems, low self-confidence, anxiety connected with physical disorders (e.g. asthma, peptic ulcers, heart problems, irritable bowel) and problems of childhood. Techniques of self-hypnosis can be adapted to enhance creativity and drive. It is not used for formal psychiatric therapy, as specialist referral usually helps more effectively.
Medical hypnosis is completely unrelated to stage hypnosis.
Therapy is individualised and where possible continued as self-therapy. Most people appreciate the benefits of letting their subconscious mind help them to greater confidence, awareness, flexibility and tolerance. Some problems only require a few treatment sessions, others require a more extensive commitment. A session is normally of one hour
Hypnosis can be very useful for problems involving:
- Anxiety, tension and stress. After a motor car accident, a 44 year old man successfuly overcame his ‘wobbly legs’ problem which was stopping him from driving
- A sixteen year old boy stopped bedwetting so that he could live in at the National Sports Institute.
- Pain management and rapid post illness / operation recovery
- A woman who was fearful of minor tranquilizer addiction found hypnosis a better alternative to managing her pain.
- A gynaecologist was amazed at his patient’s rapid post hysterectomy recovery after she used a personally designed hypnotic CD.

Some people are sceptical about the power of positive thinking and the unconscious mind. Well, let them be mediocre and stuck with no-good feelings and actions! One of my favourite sayings is:
POSITIVE THINKING MAY NOT WORK EVERY TIME
But negative thinking does!
YOU can be a positive thinker!
