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" 

"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"

If Lisa's story has inspire you to learn more about Hypnotherapy, maybe I can help you too.


Certificate & Diploma Hypnotherapy Training

As well as helping people using my Hypnotherapy treatments, I also run hypnotherapy courses, training others to become hypnotherapists, enabling them to help people like Lisa. 

My weekend Certificate in Hypnotherapy Course provides a good start and is the first module of The Diploma Course.

The 10 Module Accredited Diploma In Hypnotherapy Course provides students with the successful methods that I use to treat people;  graduates leave with a high level of competence, ready to practice hypnotherapy professionally. 

I also offer a FREE EVENING TRAINING SESSION where I provide a good insight into Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis and how these treatments can be used to improve lives. During the fun two hours, I give a hypnosis demonstration and provide details of my courses.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Hypnotherapy The New Irritable Bowel Syndrome Treatment?


MedUni Vienna states that hypnotherapy is still one of the most effective treatments of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.


For those suffering stress-related IBS they have a distinctive microbial signature in their gut. Studies in MedUni, Austria, has found holistic therapy, typically hypnotherapy is significantly more effective in treating IBS than symptomatic or probiotic treatment alone.


Irritable Bowel Syndrome Treatment

The condition manifests by a range of digestive problems including bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, inflammation and general unease. It is estimated that the Western population is affected by 10-20%.

Upon diagnosis, often a set of probiotics is prescribed, but gut-directed hypnotherapy also alleviates symptoms. There continues to be a lot of research into gastrointestinal flora to track the cause of this condition.


Psychologically distressed IBS Sufferers

Using stress questionnaires and stool samples have shown a direct correlation of gut bacteria and psychological distress. This has validated the importance of the gut-brain axis, which is the relationship between the gut microbiome and the mine.

It is for this reason that many approaches focus on restoring gut flora using probiotic diets. However, Moser’s Study Group (MedUni), a holistic, psychosomatic approach works better-hypnotherapy.

Clients who have undergone hypnotherapy showed significant alleviation of symptoms. This did not alter the composition of their gut bacteria. Further studies need to be conducted to discover whether something has changed on another level, such as bacterial metabolism as the original gut flora has remained the same throughout the process.


Hypnotherapy Up To 70% More Successful

Up to 70% of those treated with hypnotherapy responded positively. The percentage for purely symptomatic or probiotic nutritional therapies is much lower.

The holistic approach to treating IBS with hypnotherapy will continue to offer the best results in the immediate future.


“The influence of the gut microbiome on the mind and nervous system is an exciting field of research. However, purely biological approaches are insufficient for the treatment of IBS, which also requires psychosocial approaches, which are currently much more successful for patients.

People with severe IBS are often suffering from trauma or are under enormous stress and require integrated psychosomatic treatment.” Moser
