What is Hypnotherapy?

It may surprise you to learn that we all experience trance states naturally several times each day during our normal daily lives. Just losing yourself in a good book or drifting into normal sleep both involve a kind of trance state. As a trained hypnotherapist, Heather will gently guide you to achieve a trance state which can then be used to make deep and long lasting changes to your thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

Hypnotherapy is very different to the hypnosis that you may have seen on the TV or on stage, where the Hypnotist commands the audience to obey their every command.  I can assure you that no-one can be hypnotised against their will and you will not lose control. You are likely to remember most, if not all, of what was said and while in trance you will remain aware of your surroundings.

Hypnosis is a natural and effective way of making contact with your unconscious self.  Heather believes that all people are individuals and will take the time with you to fully understand your difficulty and to agree with you a realistic outcome or required result before proceeding with any hypnotherapy. An initial session can take up to 90 minutes so please allow time for this, with future sessions lasting up to one hour. Initial sessions come with a free CD to keep and use at home.

For more information, please see our Frequently Asked Questions page, or feel free to call Heather to discuss your questions.

Dear Heather,

What can i say WOW. I brought my 9 year old son to you as he was diagnosed with anxiety and OCD. After a couple of sessions i have seen a massive difference in J. He panics less at school and doesn't cry when it comes to doing number work. He rearranges things less and has stopped washing his hands constantly they've managed to clear up, and all bad thoughts from his head are gone. Its like you have waved a magic wand. Jay has become more confident and now has a can do attitude rather than giving up at the first hurdle. His class teachers particularly learning support have seen a massive difference. J will now happily sit and do math's without any worry or anxiety. I cant thank you enough. I would highly recommend you to anyone. You have made my little boy so happy and he says he feels a lot better. He says you are a very nice lady and funny. He wishes all children that have anxiety and OCD would come to you then they will be happy and calm. J continues to listen to his cd every night. Thanks again.

Hi Heather

I would just like to thank you for all your recent help with my 12 year olds anxiety issue. You made a difference after the very first session allowing him to attend school free from the anxiety he was experiencing and continue with his sport in a relaxed manner. Further sessions reinforced his relaxed mood and we would not hesitate to use your services again.

Thanks again

I thought I'd drop you a message to let you know that I managed to go on the hulk ride twice and the rock n roller coaster! Both rides are ones I have avoided in recent years and along with these, I have managed to go on other rides I hadn't for years!

Thank you for your help! I honestly didn't think I would have been able to do it but I'm glad I did!

I was desperate for something other than medication to help with my anxiety. I had been seeing a cognitive behavioural therapist and felt like she had done all she could to help me but I was still very very anxious.

I have had 4 sessions with Heather and can say I'm in a completely different place to when I first came in. I've went from being highly anxious all day everyday to a couple of panic attacks before going to a function which I was able to control and have a great time at the function.

I feel totally different and a lot happier.

When I first came to see Heather, I was overthinking and stressing over every little thing. Things that didn’t even matter to me. After just 1 visit I had already noticed a change in my self. So did my family and friends. Would definitely recommend to anyone stressing or worrying, come give this a try. It worked for me.

Before any session of hypnotherapy my anxiety felt like it was taking over my life. Three sessions later and I feel like a different person and back to being me again. I would definitely recommend.

Initially I contacted Heather to try to conquer my fear of heights before going to Las Vegas. I had 3 sessions and was amazed at how I was able to cope with heights. I have since returned to see Heather for coping with stress and anxiety. I don’t think I’ll ever not come for hypnotherapy. I find it so relaxing and keeps me balanced and calm. I’d highly recommend it to anyone.

I came to Heather with a severe phobia of spiders; my life revolved around them. After 3 sessions with Heather my phobia has gone completely and has changed my life for the better. Heather is wonderful.

After suffering with anxiety for many years I decided to try hypnotherapy with Heather. After only 3 sessions my anxiety and stress levels were at an all time low and I was confident with the tools I was given to carry on. I would highly recommend Heather and hypnosis for anxiety sufferers.

Attended session to help reduce my fear of flying. First Session was 10 hours before flight. It is the best money I have spend as I was totally relaxed in flight, even through turbulence! It made my holiday so much more enjoyable. Second session now makes me feel like flying is like driving a car!

Came to Heather with a variety of personal and psychological issues. I was in a very dark place at that time and had negativity and anxiety. I now feel rejuvenated and more confident. My anxiety has gone and my IBS is virtually non-existent.

After 10 years of insomnia, I have finally managed to learn to relax and drift into dreams as a result of Heather’s skill and patience.

I first approached Heather about her services after failing a part of my survival training course for working offshore. I had a problem using the breathing apparatus used in the helicopter underwater escape training and I feared that my chances of working offshore had ended before they had even started. After three sessions with Heather her techniques enabled me to overcome my fear of using this breathing apparatus and also helped me cope with the stress and anxiety of having to go back and try the course again. I don’t think I realised how worked up I was about this until after the first session where I walked out feeling like a great weight had been lifted off my shoulders and I had a completely different attitude towards not only the survival course but things in general. The sessions themselves were an amazing experience taking me into a state of relaxation I would never have thought possible. Now thanks to Heather I completed the course with confidence and am now looking forward to a new and exciting career in the offshore energy industry. This itself is testament to the diversity of Heather’s skills and hopefully convinces people to contact Heather for help with things they might have thought no one could help with. My family and I would just like to thank Heather once again for her help.

This review will be too short to put into words what Hypnotherapy can do for you, I went along to see Heather as I have been suffering from being anxious, nervous etc. and have lived with this for over 20 years, my kids are getting older and not needing mummy as much so I found that it was time for me to try something different and get rid of this feeling forever. I am not an easy person to relax but found Heather very calming and making you at ease, did not think it would work but WOW it so does if you are reading this you must make that phone call to HMH Therapy. Thank you Heather x

When I first came to HMH Therapy I was feeling really low and not myself but after several months of consultations I am feeling a lot better and have benefited from the excellent service and experience from HMH Therapy. Thanks for everything.
