Have you ever wondered what hypnosis actually involves? Well, its probably NOT what you think.
We all experience hypnosis (trance states) every day: Things like being lost in a book or a film, “being miles away” or even driving on autopilot are all examples of hypnosis. Sports people call it being in “the zone”.
There is no going to sleep, no mind control, in fact you are probably MORE aware not less.
You are in full control at all times, the hypnotherapist doesnt take over you- that’s just a misconception. You can’t get stuck in a trance state either.
You might feel a deep sense of relaxation, maybe more relaxed than ever before! The simplest way to think about hypnosis, in a way most people can relate to is retraining the brain.
In a trance state, the brain seems far more open to new ways of thinking and behaving than without.
With a good, caring therapist, hypnotherapy is completely safe and natural, and it can have deep lasting effects for life.

We all like a drink, maybe after work to unwind, release a bit of stress, or maybe its a social thing or even just like to have 1 or 2 when you get home. For an increasing number of people though, drinking goes beyond this enjoyable habit and becomes a lot more of a burden. It can get to a point where the drinking seems to take control, and if you’re one of those people that feels like they haven’t got a stop switch then why not try hypnotherapy and see how we can help.
Dont think there is nothing you can do, environmental factors such as your job, family, relationships, work can all be either a contributing factor or equally they can be the things that help you get out of this rut. It doesnt matter how much you drink, its what you think is an acceptable amount of alcohol that is what is in question. For some people a bottle of wine a night is ok, for some its far too much.
I know from experience of helping both clients who drink a bit too much to working with people who have serious drinking conditions that you can learn how to control it.
Below are some useful tips from helpguide.org/alcohol-treatment
After you’ve set your goals to either stop or cut back your drinking, write down some ideas on how you can help yourself accomplish these goals. For example:

People who suffer from this condition, which is often seen as a phobia of being sick can have a very tough time of it, which is why they turn to a hypnotherapist who can help. The thing with emetophobia is that it makes you anxious, feel nervous, worried etc. For a lot of people this means that the nerves in the stomach can be in turmoil which in turn, then makes them feel sick!
Of course, this then makes a sufferer get so wound up about their phobia, that it actually causes them to experience the thing they fear most.
A short paraphrased section on emetophobia from Dr Carbonell in America may help:
Emetophobia occurs in men and women, children and adults. Some are afraid that they will vomit. Others are afraid of seeing others vomit. Most have trouble describing what they fear will happen if they vomit, or see others vomit, but vaguely fear some terrible loss of control, a catastrophe from which they won’t recover. They fear insanity, death, endless vomiting, and so on. Most times they can recognize that these catastrophes aren’t really going to result from vomiting. But when they feel that vomiting may occur, then they don’t feel so sure.
The overwhelming majority have vomited in the past, since almost all of us have, with no lasting ill effects. Most have also seen others vomit. Yet the absence of any ill effects from past vomiting has generally not helped a person overcome the fear of vomiting. Instead, it usually leads people to try to avoid any possibility of vomiting, and they struggle to protect themselves against what they fear.
Generally speaking, most phobias can be treated quite quickly – in around 3 sessions (depending on the person of course). Hypnosis can help you break these vicious cycles of fear>>worry>>fear of being sick>> more fear etc etc. Believe it or not, its actually the subsequent fear that causes as many problems as the original fear. I have helped people across Derbyshire to beat their fear of being sick (emetophobia) for many years. It is a relatively common fear, but you can learn how to overcome it.
Sufferers can have a terrible time in trying to avoid any kind of situation that might make them feel sick/anxious. This can mean even avoiding trips to new or exciting places, holidays, restaurants the list goes on.
With a Master Practitioner certificate in NLP i can combine hypnotherapy and NLP to ensure that you get a fast and effective treatment for your emetophobia.

I had a very pleasant and positive experience going to Ripley Hypnotherapy. Always struggled with my weight and was desperate to get in that head space and finally lose the pounds. I’ve since lost a stone in 8 weeks and i’m 150% sure that I wouldn’t have achieved that without going to this clinic. Very professional and efficient.*

“I first approached Garry Webster with an alcohol-related problem not knowing at all what to expect but willing to “give it a go”. I was immediately at ease as Garry is easy to talk to and confide in. His expert knowledge meant that he could help me to identify that the alcohol was as a result of an issue and not the cause of it. This meant that through hypnosis and Counselling we were able to not only identify the problem but ways of dealing with, and ultimately, removing it. I am pleased to say that I now feel like this has changed my life, enabling me to be more confident, relaxed and happy and I cannot begin to thank Garry enough for his assistance in helping me to achieve this.”
“I came to see Garry after I had suffered with anxiety due to a horrendous presentation in front of 40 managers and directors with my role at work. I had reached the point where I would sit in meetings just hating that it would be me next. After researching hypnosis I decided that maybe it could help me overcome my issues and came across Garry’s website and made a booking.
Almost instantly after speaking to him he set my mind at ease and relaxed me as he listened to my experience and assured me I was not alone with my fears.
After a couple of hypnosis sessions with Garry I found more confidence within myself and was able to focus on the important things and not the negative.
Things have gone so well since that I’ve been in front of 90 people presenting my speech with not a worry in the world! 6 months before I’d have been hiding at the back of the room or under the table! I would encourage anyone with concerns or issues similar to mine to try hypnotherapy.
Garry thanks for everything and for helping me focus on the important things in life and not the negative!!!”
I would like to say thank you for your patience and understanding over the weeks that I have been coming to see you.
I felt I was a weak failure of a woman, lacked confidence, but you put me at my ease made it easy to talk to you and did not mind about my tears.
I was a bit dubious at the time as to whether the hypnotherapy would work especially in me being desperate to lose weight!! You did assure me it would happen given time.
After my first few visits I did begin to feel better and more relaxed, you helped me to realise that I was not a failure or weak and the guilty feelings I had were not my fault and I did not need to feel guilty about anything.
You talked me through why my weight and food phobia telling me I could do anything if I wanted to.
As you said, once you had guided my mind through my issues I began to feel better in myself and did realise I could do anything!! The big problem was my weight and hooray I did start to lose the weight that I wanted to.
When the time came for you to say that you felt I did not need to come anymore I did panic a little, but I feel I have managed quite well on my own and I do still hear your voice saying you can do it and I can.
I would not hesitate to recommend anyone that has any sort of problems to come along and talk to you.
Once again Gary thank you for helping me through what I thought was a difficult time for me.
I am very grateful thanks.”
“In July 2011 I was the heaviest weight I have ever been and my obsession with chocolate and food was dangerously out of control.
I knew I had to do something or I would literally eat myself to death.
I looked on the internet for someone to help me through hypnosis and I came across Garry’s website and arranged to go and see him.
Following my first session with him I never touched chocolate again – almost a year now and I don’t crave or want it anymore.
I knew once I got the chocolate under control I could conker anything and over the next 4 sessions Garry helped me with my eating problems and I have now lost over 5 stone in 11 months and feel so much better.
My next goal is 6 stone and I know I will get there.
I can’t recommend Garry enough, he was kind and caring and listened to my issues and tailored the sessions to my needs. I was sceptical at first but I can confidently say it worked for me.
The little voice in my head will say to me “Will that food help you lose weight? If not don’t eat it!”
I have so much more confidence and enjoy going to the gym all through Garry’s help.”

“Thanks to Garry I was able to stop smoking a few years ago. After only 1 session I felt transformed, i was no longer feeling the need for a cigarette, within weeks I was feeling better in myself & never looked back since. Not only did Gary save me years of future illness but a load of cash too.
As with most things it takes some will power but Gary helped change my mind set and gave me the tools to do what was needed. I highly recommend the treatment, you have nothing to lose and lots to gain if works for you too.”

A hypnotherapist ( a good one that is) uses hypnosis to help bring about change from all kinds of problems such as weight loss, stopping smoking, anxiety and panic attacks. A clinical hypnotherapist is trained to help you overcome so many of lifes problems, you could look at a clinical hypnotherapist as working on the mind where as a doctor works on the body.
Please note the distinction between a hypnotist, and a cinical hypnotherapist. They might sound similar but the 2 are very different, A hypnotherapist is a practitioner of hypnosis and hypnotherapeutic techniques- generally hypnotists are stage practitioners. Also, a hypno-psychotherapist ( i am one of these) is trained even longer than a hypnotherapist.
Our Derby hypnotherapist service covers Derby ( of course) but also Derbyshire and as the location of the Derby office is on the border of 2 counties, it also sees clients from right across Derbyshire – areas such as Amber Valley which is seen as the heart of Derbyshire, Alfreton, and even as far up as Buxton.

Did anyone see the Katy Hopkins program where she put weight on then lost it again to prove that losing weight “is easy” ??
What Katy doesnt seem to realise is that its not like that for everyone else. Not everyone has that type of metabolism, not everyone finds it that easy. Its quite offensive to a lot of people to say imply that everyone can do it like she did it.
If weight loss was that simple no one would be overweight. Don’t get me wrong, im not saying weight loss isnt possible,- it is! and its not the holy grail that a lot of people think it is= ie that they cant lose weight and in my experience there’s very few exceptions to that. We dont all have the pressure of 10’s of 1000’s of TV viewers watching us though do we?
The weight loss industry is one of not the biggest industries in the world, think about it how many people do you know who want to lose weight? probably 60-70% of your friends and family would change their weight if they could? Weight loss is a massive issue and and its at epidemic proportions!
The worst bit was that Katy was so rude to those people just because they are not “thin”, she showed her naivety when she told that woman she couldnt be healthy because she was big! You dont need to be stick thin to be fit.
So id be interested to hear of your experiences with this- do you think Katy is right or wrong to go about it like this?
