Hypnotherapy in Chippenham – Penny Finnegan

Do you feel a bit stuck sometimes and struggle to make positive changes in your life? Perhaps you suffer with stress, or anxiety and it’s holding you back? Or, you struggle with poor quality sleep which leaves you feeling drained and unable to cope? Maybe you want to improve your performance in a certain area, have an unwanted habit you’d like to change, or would like to overcome a fear, or phobia?

Our minds are a powerful resource, which if given free rein and not exercised in the right way, may become more of a hindrance to our wellbeing, than a help. I am passionate about educating people about how they can use their mind as a force for good, helping people to make positive changes in their lives and free their minds from the unhelpful thinking habits that have been getting in their way. I do this by using cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy (CBH), leaving you free to achieve more of what you want (or less of what you don’t want) and live a happier life, in which you feel more in control.

I will create a bespoke programme for you, using a range of evidence based techniques that can help with:

  • Stress & anxiety
  • Low mood
  • Procrastination
  • Insomnia
  • Unhelpful habits
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Pain management
  • Low self-esteem and assertiveness
  • Focus and performance
Hypnotherapy in Chippenham

What is Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy?

Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy (CBH) is an effective, goal-focused form of hypnotherapy that can help to manage and overcome individual problems and challenges by changing the way we think, feel and behave, in a more positive way. It is essentially the integration of hypnosis with modern social, cognitive and behavioural psychology and benefits from a strong evidence base to support its use in the treatment of certain conditions, such as feelings of stress or anxiety, as well as to help manage certain physical ailments.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis can be described as an active process of focused attention on a particular idea, or suggestion (typically guided by the therapist) where you become so absorbed in something imagined that your body responds as if it’s actually happening, thereby increasing receptivity to therapeutic change work.

Therapeutic hypnosis creates a context where you can use your imagination to evoke positive emotions, rehearse behaviour change and absorb new ideas and new possibilities more easily. It creates a means to learn alternative ways of thinking about things, as well as to discover resources within you that you had forgotten, or didn’t know you had. The suggestions delivered in hypnosis are a means of experiencing certain helpful ideas at a level profound enough to directly influence your emotions and behaviour, at a therapeutic level. It is empowering and gives people a sense of control over their experience. And contrary to popular belief, it hasn’t nothing to do the therapist controlling your mind!

Mark Jones – Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.

Welcome to the start of an exciting journey of self-discovery.

I am a Solution-focused Hypnotherapist working out of CK Clinic in  Chippenham that covers the Wiltshire & Bath area, and I provide one of the most effective combinations in effective treatment of depression, anxiety, anger, phobias etc, and just as importantly a really powerful method of self-improvement  and development. Additionally more and more customers are coming to me for anti-smoking and weight-loss: the results are truly amazing!

I draw methods & techniques from the very latest scientific research and psychological studies with emphasis on parts of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), brain-based therapy, certain NLP techniques, solution-focused brief therapy which is then concluded within each session with hypnosis trance work.

Because we do not delve into the arena of counselling, the client doesn’t need to dwell on past traumas or re-live events. We certainly acknowledge the past, however we focus the therapy of today and where you would go tomorrow. This is the key part of why our clients achieve such incredible results and get their lives back under their control.

This forward-focused approach has proven to be so effective that we are now launching the therapy within the business world, helping would-be executives, developing sales teams & something that traditionally HR departments have neglected, the well-being of employees; if we can reduce long-term absenteeism and train managers to spot individuals that may be struggling by getting them help when they need it, then the money saved and increased productivity within industry are going to be off the scale.

Hypnotherapy can be used to help treat a wide range of issues such as:

  • Anxiety, depression, stress and anger.
  • Fears and phobias
  • Physical conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, skin conditions and migraines
  • Panic attacks
  • Tinnitus
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Insomnia
  • Lack of confidence
  • Weight loss
  • Giving up smoking & other addictions
  • Improve performance at work or in sport

Many of my clients have had eureka moments, those “Oh…my goodness…the answer is there right in front of me!” revelations, simply by you looking at where you want to get to, in a different way. Other times, the solution evolves and turns into new exciting goals as you move forward.
