Hypnotherapy Treatments

Hypnotherapy can help with any problem where you feel that your mind is acting on your body. 

Hypnosis can be applied to many symptoms and conditions – and is not limited to the conditions listed below.  To discuss your particular issue and how it is best dealt with, telephone Eve at the Surrey Hypnosis Clinic on 01737 842 683.

Hypnotherapy Sessions

Each session is tailored to your goals and outcomes for the therapy.  The number of sessions are dependent on the individual's circumstances.  To give you an idea, smoking cessation is generally a single session, anxiety is 3-4 sessions, phobia is 2-3 sessions, alcohol control is 3 sessions, alcoholism is 3-5 sessions, trichotillomania is 2 sessions and weight control is generally 3 sessions.


What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is an altered state of awareness - in that it is a state of highly focused internal concentration.  The body is very relaxed and the mind is alert and active.  It may surprise many to learn that we experience trance states often during the course of our day.  Hypnosis is just a different state of consciousness which you can enter naturally so that, for therapeutic purposes, beneficial corrections may be given directly to your unconscious mind.

During the hypnotic state the mind is more receptive and allows you to effect the change you desire.   When in trance the conscious part of your mind is sidestepped allowing access to the unconscious part of your mind.  This is important because this is where the unwanted behaviours, unwanted habits, unwanted emotions, unwanted symptoms, unwanted beliefs are stored.  Trance allows you to access this part of your mind to make the change you want in order for you to become unstuck and move forward.



Providing the presenting problem originates from experiences or trauma from the past, from repetitive learned behaviour (as with habits) or from performance related stress, then hypnosis may be used to give successful treatment.  It has been used to treat the following:

  • Changing unwanted habits such as: smoking, excessive drinking, nail biting.
  • Obtaining relief and often remission from symptoms such as: emotional and physical pain.
  • Hypnosis can help the individual from phobias, compulsions, emotional problems, sleeping problems, lack of confidence, low self esteem, guilt feelings, jealousy, and many of the worries and anxieties of everyday life.
  • The use of Self Hypnosis can help deal with the stress and tensions caused by modern living, reducing the risk of heart problems and blood pressure.


The Unconscious and Conscious Mind

The unconscious mind is responsible for around 90% of what we think, feel, and do – so by focusing and channelling this power in a positive way, you can change the conditions of a lifetime. 

The conscious mind seems to make all the decisions and direct all the activities – but this isn’t the case.  This is done by the unconscious mind. 

The unconscious mind is responsible for all our habits, our emotions, our creativity and managing the involuntary functions of the body such as our heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, controlling the body temperature, hunger and elimination of food from the body and activating the fight and flight emergency response.

During normal waking hours the conscious mind is the primary and predominant part of the mind gathering information.  The conscious mind is judgmental, analytical, critical.  The incoming information is analysed as to belief, importance and truth.  It is accepted or rejected and then stored in the unconscious part of the mind.

Like driving a car for the first time, you learn to drive at a conscious level.  As you practice and analyse your experience the information gets stored at an unconscious level.  After a while you find that you drive automatically, doing manoeuvres without thinking about it,

as the responses come from the unconscious mind.

When someone is under stress, anxiety the analytical portion of the conscious mind is directly affected and sometimes it cannot function effectively.  The greater the stress the greater the loss of efficiency.  Under extreme pressure the conscious mind can become almost non functioning. 

The unconscious mind also gathers information, however, the difference is that any information gathered it does so without first analysing it.  The subconscious mind cannot analyse.  It accepts or rejects in total.

When someone is stressed, highly anxious, and the conscious mind loses its efficiency it also begins to lower its dominancy, causing the unconscious mind to become more dominant.  At this point the the conscious mind is in the lower position and the unconscious mind becomes the primary information gathering faculty.  Now the person can no longer apply logic analyse or respond to the situation in their best interest. 

We've all be told if we ever get into trouble, don't panic.  The greater the emotional stress, the less logical we become.  It is during those situations of extreme emotional stress and anxiety that we take on board information, suggestions, learnings, which would otherwise have been actively rejected by the conscious part of the mind that then gives rise to future unwanted behavioural responses.
