What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a perfectly natural
state which we all pass through at least twice a day when we wake
up and go to sleep. For the purposes of therapy Hypnosis is really
all about relaxation. At all times you will remain conscious and
aware, there is absolutely no question of you being under the ‘control’
of anyone, including the hypnotist or anything else.
What is Cognitive Therapy?
Cognitive therapies, Psychotherapy and life coaching offered at ELK Hypnotherapy include the Paul Douglas Lifeshaping Programme and the Rob Kelly THRIVE programme. Many of our clients have found these service a great alternative to Cognitive Behavourial Therapy (CBT).
What problems and symptoms can be treated at ELK Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Therapy provide effective
treatment for any anxiety and stress related conditions, ranging
from phobias (including emetophobia), social
anxiety, shyness, Obessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), depression, sexual
problems, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) through to unwanted habits such as smoking and nail biting. There are three main types of hypnotherapy, cognitive therapy and life coaching offered
Firstly, we could use positive suggestion
therapy to control a particular symptom.
This type of hypnotism is suitable for smoking
cessation, nail biting, fear of public speaking, pre test nerves, weight loss and slimming, hypnotic gastric band etc.
Secondly, we could use analytic therapy (Hypnoanalysis)
to remove the root cause of a symptom, such as phobias, social
anxiety, shyness, depression, sexual
problems, gambling etc. This type of hypnotherapy would usually
take place over eight to ten sessions (certainly no more than twelve
Thirdly we could use cognitive therapy or life coaching to understand and change our 'thinking' to overcome phobias (including emetophobia), social
anxiety, shyness, depression, sexual
problems, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and much more.
Here is some recent feedback from our clients:
Im not sure u remember me but I came to you maybe 2 yrs ago for a virtual gastric band.
Just to let you know with the help of your treatment and sorting my head out I have now managed to loose 4.5 stone in weight and ive stopped smoking. After talking to you I found my addictive personality was far easier to control and did diet and stopped smoking at the same time.
Many thanks for your help money well spent.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the last 7 weeks. This has been an amazing journey and feel that I am in a place that I have never been before. When I came to see you abut my emetophobia I was at my lowest I have ever been! The book Thrive has had a huge impact in my life not only with my emetophobia but in my day to day life.
I can now see my future without the day to day worrying about sick!
Big thank you and I will be back for sure, as the hour on the couch is a great way to get perspective on all things challenging in life!
All the best
"I had a few different issues in my life I wanted to resolve. After going through every medical test for IBS and finding no solution. Along with some very personal men’s issues (ED/PE), which I also went through various medical tests, but equally to no avail. Eventually these all got to the stage where it felt they were controlling and ruining my life.
So I after reading through the ELK’s website all seemed quite promising. All my issues were listed as being treatable. Being quite a sceptical person, I thought I would try the free consultation and see if I could be helped. (Hey nothing to lose).
After meeting Richard and discussing my major issues, I thought I’d throw in that I had issues with heights. Turns out and initially I had issues believing. ED/PE, IBS and a fear of heights were all the same issue, Anxiety.
Now to be honest I had visions of being laid on a couch, with a watch being waved over my head, and waking up cured. When I was told that I would resolve this myself, my scepticism levels rose. However after having just a couple of sessions I could clearly see, and feel the change in myself.
I now feel so proud of how I have completely changed my life. Richard’s guidance and brilliant way of helping me understand what I needed to do was priceless.
Thank you Richard for all your help. I am so happy in what I have achieved.
"After suffering a panic attack 10 year ago, I found myself going into social situations worrying that it may happen again. Subsequently this spiralled into a situation where I was avoiding socialising and when I was forced to speak to someone for an extended period I would feel the panic rising and make any excuse to get out of the situation. With my up coming wedding approaching I knew I needed to resolve this once and forall. I was sceptical about getting outside help but decided to give it a go with encouragement from my partner. Over the coming weeks attending sessions with Richard he explained to me the negative thought processes that were causing my anxiety. With this new found understanding I began to build on my positive experiences and within weeks I was seeing a huge imrpovement. I would encourage anyone that is sceptical to give it a try. If I had realised how quickly Richard would help me to overcome my problem, I would have done it years ago. I can't thank him enough. Many thanks Z."
