About Hypnotherapy by Zoe Johnson, Wilmslow
Hypnosis is a state of mind, enhanced by mental and physical relaxation, whereby the subconscious mind works with our conscious mind.
This can be achieved by oneself – known as self-hypnosis – or via a therapist and this is known as Hypnotherapy.
Everyone can respond to Hypnotherapy and benefit from it, if they are open to make the changes or have a belief that changes can be achieved.
Hypnotherapy assist in bringing about a necessary or desired change in a person’s life Treatment covers many areas including but not limited to such as anxiety-based disorders, habits, phobias as well as personal development.
You will enter a state of deep and pleasant relaxation prior to the delivery of therapy. This is all achieved just by listening to the therapist as they speak to you in a calm and gentle way. A wide range of techniques are used during the session including power of imagination, metaphors, storytelling or simply by direct suggestion al designed to facilitate change.
It is generally considered helpful if the client is personally motivated to change (rather than relying solely on the therapist’s efforts) although a belief in the possibility of beneficial change may be a sufficient starting point.
Results from Hypnotherapy usually occur in a quicker time frame than other talking therapies. Between 3 and 5 session is average.
You are in full control for the duration of the session – you can fully talk if required or stand up and leave the room should you wish to! Hypnotherapy is in no way related to Stage Hypnosis!

I went to Zoe a few years ago to help with my insomnia and anxiety. I had tried a range of other therapies to help but none seemed to do the trick; then I came to Zoe – slightly dubious about Hypnotherapy I must add – and it has honestly changed my life.
I cannot thank Zoe enough for her help, she was amazing and I could not recommend her enough.
I developed a fear of flying after a bad experience and avoided overseas holidays for several years. I have wanted to to visit family in America but was reluctant to take the first steps. After talking to Zoe, she was so calm, reassuring, and made me feel so relaxed. She made me realise that my fears were not based on logical reasons. I am so happy that I have now been to see my brother in America and I am determined to enjoy future holidays overseas. I cannot recommend Zoe highly enough.
Zoe helped me with my anxiety and feelings of being unable to cope. I had stomach problems that were caused by the anxiety and these have gone now. I’m also feeling less overwhelmed and am more organised.
