Manchester Hypnotherapy

At his Manchester Hypnotherapy practice, Nigel always combines psychotherapy with clinical hypnotherapy, NLP and CBT.

Hypnotherapy can make it easier to explore and change your thoughts and behaviour patterns, and gain deeper insights, enabling irrational fears, anxieties, habits, negative thoughts and behaviours to be explored and altered.  Like other talking therapies, Hypnotherapy involves an active participation between you and the therapist. It is not a ‘magic wand’ or something that is done to you ‘while-u-wait’. Hypnosis itself is a natural state of highly focused attention and awareness, quite similar to what you might experience while daydreaming or relaxing.  Hypnotherapy is a generic term for any therapy process that is carried out while you are in hypnosis. Contrary to how hypnosis is often portrayed, you always remain aware and in control.

Anxiety Disorders

Often our mind can’t tell the difference between the thoughts about a situation and the situation itself. Therefore by simply thinking, worrying or ‘what if’-ing about something you are actually activating the fight-or-flight response in exactly the same way as if you were experiencing it in reality. I specialise in treating the various anxiety disorders and frequently work with Generalised Anxiety Disorder, OCD, PTSD, Social Anxiety, Phobias, Fear of Public Speaking, Blushing and Interview Anxiety.

The treatment for depression is available at my Manchester Hypnotherapy practice, and is highly tailored to each person’s unique requirements, so the exact form of treatment and number of sessions will vary from person to person. However significant improvements can often be made in as little as 8 to 12 sessions for single very specific issues.

Insomnia & Sleep Disorders

Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterised by a persistent difficulty falling asleep and/or maintaining sleep. Initially people often find they can’t get to sleep because their mind is full of thoughts about their problems. However after a while, it is often the worry about your inability to sleep, that becomes a major factor in maintaining the insomnia. The treatment combines various helpful approaches, such as sleep education, relaxation, hypnotherapy and psychotherapy, and is highly tailored to your unique individual requirements.
