My Approach To Hypnotherapy
I practice 'Analytical Hypnotherapy' or Hypno-Analysis which is a Psychotherapeutic and stress-trauma resolution therapeutic approach – based largely on Psychodynamic and Humanistic methodology, it focuses on dealing with the underlying originating cause of the client’s distress by providing a deeply investigative therapeutic environment. This practice means not merely treating the client’s symptoms superficially or providing a method of coping with life’s problems but actually handling cases of intense psychological malaise by resolving dilemmas naturally and effortlessly at the root of the problem.
The client can thus deal with distressing conditions, such as really deep-seated fears, crippling anxieties, stubborn habit disorders, low confidence, stressful-traumatic experience manifestations, relationship difficulties, grief-bereavement issues and the devastating effects of childhood abuse, neglect and abandonment.
Analytical Hypnotherapy can, of course, still equally be applied to more common presenting issues for which Hypnotherapy is popularly renowned for, such as weight management, smoking cessation and pain management, without inferring that Hypnotherapy is a quick-fix methodology and, thereby, giving the profession a disreputable name.
In my therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current presenting issues and improve positive thinking and behaviour. Using the relaxation techniques of Hypnotherapy with Psychotherapy, I will help you explore the root causes of your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles.
I’m confident you’ll find my personalised individual Therapy beneficial and inspirational.

We also have online downloadable Hypnotherapy CPD courses for Practising Hypnotherapists, and individual self development.
The Evolution of the Analytic Approach
Hypnotherapy was undoubtedly around in ancient times but has only in the last century been recognised fully as a therapeutic tool. The seeds of today’s Analytical Hypnotherapy were sewn in the days of Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) and Carl Jung (1875-1961) at the beginning of the twentieth century when Freud introduced his concepts of imaginative age-regression and free association of ideas, which shunned the populist suggestive therapy trend then in vogue, to the medical fraternity.
The humanists Carl Rogers (1902-1987) and Abraham Maslow (1809-1970) who laid the foundations for important counselling principles also added greatly to the analytical equation.
By the mid-twentieth century hypnotherapists, such as Neil French, Gil Boyne and Edgar Barnett, promoted the idea of Hypnoanalysis and age-regression as important components in an insight-oriented approach to therapeutic intervention with the aid of hypnosis. This work set the tone for the future when their students spawned Hypnotherapy schools of their own. Joe Keaney in the Republic of Ireland and Georges Philips in London, for instance, promoted the notion of Analytical Hypnotherapy.
