Manchester Hypnotherapy Other Problems
Each year, millions of people worldwide use hypnotherapy and other techniques to overcome their difficulties and live more rewarding lives. You can be one of them. Here are some of the issues I frequently help people with.
Relationships, jealousy, and insecurity
I am often contacted by people with relationships difficulties. Some need help with jealousy, insecurity, or overcoming the pain of infidelity. Others might be struggling with commitment or communication, or simply getting over an ex. One thing is certain: unhappy relationships are a huge source of stress in our lives.
Insecurity in relationships (or with siblings, friends, colleagues, etc.) is a toxic combination of thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This causes anxiety, and often reflects problems with low self-esteem or previous, destructive relationships.
Unchecked, these insecurities can jeopardise everything – leaving us prone to a pattern of dysfunctional relationships that never seems to end. People overcome such difficulties by boosting their self-esteem and confidence, learning to stay calm in ‘triggering’ situations, and recognising unhelpful thinking. Contact me to find out more.

Excessive Blushing or Sweating
I frequently help people who blush or sweat excessively. Both problems are facets of the the fight-or-flight response, and are tied to deeper concerns about fitting in. The usual trigger is sudden scrutiny or being the centre of attention.
Excessive blushing and sweating cause great embarrassment. This is especially a problem in work. Meetings, presentations, and even day-to-day interactions become fraught with anxiety. Frustratingly, we can feel ‘fine’ on the inside but still find ourselves blushing or sweating. We then come to fear this response, which makes matters worse.
Blushing can sometimes be ‘switched off’ using hypnotherapy. Sometimes, we need to improve our confidence and learn to ‘no longer care’ about blushing / sweating. Achieve a calm confidence within yourself, and you can remove these type of problems. Hypnotherapy works very well for this.
Motivation and procrastination
It takes effort and persistence to achieve anything worthwhile. Unfortunately, procrastination makes this difficult: challenges mount, we become overwhelmed, and often give up entirely. This destructive cycle holds us back from a rewarding life.
Procrastination is not just frustrating, at it’s worst it ruin lives… There is rarely a single cause, and rarely a single solution.
Ultimately, it boils down to self-control. The ability to focus, plan, start and carry on until every job is done enables us to define our goals and achieve them. There’s no magical formula, just a sense that you are in control of your own destiny.

Picking Habits, e.g. Nail Biting and Trichotillomaniana
Some people develop entrenched ‘picking’ habits: pulling hair or eyelashes; biting nails, lips, or skin. These habits can get out of control, creating painful and unsightly consequences.
Sometimes, people can leave difficult times behind but their picking habit still persists. In such cases, trichotillomania, nail biting, or lip picking can be easy to remove using hypnotherapy and NLP.
Obsessive Thoughts and OCD-Type Behaviour
Our ability to think is a tremendous gift. Everything ever invented – including the screen you’re reading this on – began with a single thought. We can rationalise, compare and contrast, summarise and consider. Without thought, what would we be?
However, sometimes our thinking can get out of control, and we become obsessively fixated on unnecessary things. Sometimes our thoughts become distorted: we make assumptions, think in black and white terms, or create catastrophic situations in our minds. This causes all kinds of difficulty with confidence, anxiety, overeating, smoking, and more.
Using a combination of hypnotherapy and NLP, I can help. I do this by teaching you how to cope better with stress and anxiety, boosting your confidence and self-esteem, and then eradicating the compulsive thoughts from within.

Most people will experience periods of insomnia in their lives. Usually, these spells end quite quickly and we return a healthy sleep pattern. The human body has an innate drive to sleep, which often recovers naturally.
However, some people can find themselves suffering with chronic insomnia. This usually encompasses a mixture of bad sleeping habits and overthinking. This can lead to anxiety, depression, memory loss and more. Worse still, we come to fear insomnia which leaves us even more anxious and alert.
Good ‘sleep hygiene’ – the collection of habits that promote sleep – is easily implemented. You can be taught this in a session or two. The significant challenge for insomnia suffers involves learning to think less when trying to go to sleep. Hypnotherapy and NLP are excellent tools for quieting the mind and readying yourself for sleep.
