“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

World Health Organisation

Hypnotherapy, and the approach that I use on all the issues that affect your physical health, allow you to break the old subconscious programming and make more healthy positive choices for your future.

Physical health and mental health are strongly connected. Taking care of your physical health is scientifically shown to improve mental well-being, and vice versa. If one declines, the other can be affected too.

Having a balanced diet, exercising, having good quality sleep, and stopping unhealthy habits such as smoking, excess alcohol, and drugs are some of the key physical health factors that can promote mental well-being.

Stop Smoking

We often feel ‘stuck’ in an unhelpful pattern of behaviour that continues the smoking habit.

Every smoker knows the risks and negative effects of smoking – the smell, damage to their health, drain on their finances, effects on their energy, their fitness, yet they still feel compelled to smoke.

Hypnotherapy helps to break the unhelpful habit of smoking and frees yourself to have a healthier future. As soon as you stop smoking your body starts to repair and your risk of a smoking related disease is widely reduced.

Your fitness and energy can increase, sense of smell and taste can return and lung function can increase by up to a third.

Weight control

Most overweight people know the foods that they ‘should’ and shouldn’t eat but end up eating in the same old unhelpful ways often driven by their emotions and habits.

People often eat for comfort, out of boredom or habit and find it hard to break this cycle of behaviour.

Dropping just 5 to 10% of your body weight can improve your overall health and reduce your risk for chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes.

When we feel in control of our food decisions and feel more comfortable with our bodies we can increase in confidence and self esteem too.

Eating Disorders

Hypnotherapy helps to break the habits and emotions linked to foods that damage our health.


Problems with sleep are a major factor in physical and mental health. Sleep is as important to our health as eating, drinking and breathing.

It allows our bodies to repair themselves and our brains to consolidate our memories and process information. Poor sleep is linked to physical problems such as a weakened immune system and mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.

You may have noticed a desire to eat more when you are tired and this is due to concentrations of a hormone increasing with lack of sleep that makes you feel hungry and suppressing a companion hormone that signals that you are full and satisfied

The more we ‘try’ to sleep the more we chase sleep away. Sleep is not something we have to consciously ‘do’ so we often need to address the subconscious and the reasons why sleep alludes us

Studies are showing more and more that a holistic approach to health – linking physical, social, emotional, and mental health – is necessary for mental well-being.
