Do Hypnotherapy Treatments Work?
Can Hypnotherapy Really Improve Lives?
By Chris Fleet @hypno_teacher
I am often asked these questions.
And, the simple answer is "Yes, hypnotherapy very definitely can work"
I Have Been Helping People For 15 Years
I have been helping people for more than 15 years using hypnotherapy and hypnosis treatments. Many of these people had previously been long sufferers of depression, stress and anxiety and, for many years, had had the quality of their lives blighted until I treated them.
Many Relate Hypnosis To 'The Swinging Watch'
Unfortunately, many think that hypnotherapy involves the classic 'Swinging Watch' that has often been demonstrated on stage at shows and, as a result, this makes people sceptical about its effectiveness.
A patient of mine, Lisa from Newton Abbot was sceptical, too, but after suffering with PTSD, anxiety and depression for many years and, after many other treatments had failed, she decided to try hypnotherapy.
I am very pleased to report that it has worked and life is very much better now for Lisa.
Lisa's Story In Her Own Words
Lisa has written this piece, briefly describing her experience and she has given me permission to publish her words.
I love how she starts her piece:
"Life gets better by change, not chance"

Hypnotherapy was the best decision I ever could have made!!
I had always been sceptical of hypnotherapy but after suffering with PTSD, anxiety, and depression for as long as I can remember, I decided in March 2019 that I had to try an alternative treatment to give myself a chance of finally getting better as my issues impacted on my life, relationships and my decisions.
Previous to hypnotherapy, I received mental health support, counselling and CBT but I didn't feel any of this worked for me. I was also prescribed multiple medications that included anti depressants (which I had been on for over 10 years), diazapam for anxiety and zoplicone for my sleeping issues.
Chris began the therapy by measuring my depression and anxiety levels which indicated that I was on a severe level. After 7 sessions of hypnotherapy, over a period of 4 months, both scores have significantly reduced to a normal level and I am proud to say that I am no longer taking medication that I relied on for many years and I am feeling the best I have ever felt. 😁
Thank you Chris for making me feel alive. I didn't know I had it in me to feel so good and stable. The difference in me is truly amazing! I am strong, confident, happy, positive and feel ready to take on whatever life throws at me. Things are finally good and I'm excited for the future.
Chris. You are amazing. Thank you xxx"
Many thanks, Lisa, for letting me publish this and I am so pleased live is much better for you.
