About Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is the application of hypnotic techniques as a therapy for a range of problems.

A hypnotherapist helps activate the client’s inner resources to achieve realistic goals. Under hypnosis, your imagination can be guided and shaped to enable you to achieve the outcome you want.

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a fast-acting listening and talking therapy that combines a variety of tools tailored to the client’s personality and needs to achieve a desired specific outcome.

All hypnotherapy sessions with an NCH hypnotherapist are confidential, giving you a safe space to explore what is troubling you.

Session length and the time span and frequency of sessions can vary, so always ask your hypnotherapist how they practise.


People can suffer from low self-esteem, or obsessive thoughts about someone or something. For example, they may not be able to rid their minds of the idea that a partner is unfaithful, or that they are suffering from an illness despite medical reassurance. Hypnotherapy can help them banish such obsessions.


People can suffer from a wide variety of distressing feelings such as panic attacks, anxiety, jealousy, guilt, anger or inadequacy. Whatever the feeling, hypnotherapy can offer an effective, natural treatment without any unpleasant side effects.


People often experience an irrational fear of a variety of insects, animals, objects or situations. Hypnotherapy is renowned for its effectiveness in helping sufferers overcome these distressing and inhibiting conditions.


People can find themselves in the grip of habits or patterns they seem unable to control, from nail-biting or smoking to more deep-seated compulsions. Hypnotherapy can help them overcome such habits.
