Hypnotherapy: William James Therapy

Hypnotherapy is a skilled communication aimed at directing a person’s imagination in a way that helps elicit changes in some perceptions, sensations, feelings, thoughts and behaviours. The first session usually involves discussing the therapeutic goals desired, then considering factors related to previous medical history along with general health and lifestyle, before deciding on the best approach for the individual.

Hypnotherapy may be helpful for those seeking relief from a range of problems and is used alongside a person’s own willpower and motivation to seek a desired goal. It is often used to help relieve stress, anxiety, fears and phobias, to aid sleeping, address attitudes to weight, and help clients achieve behavioural change, (e.g. to stop smoking). It may also help with conditions that are exacerbated by stress and confidence issues, and is often used to enhance performance in areas such as sport and public speaking. Hypnotherapy may help people to cope with and manage the relief of perceived pain, (with medical conditions, clients should first consult their GP).

Hypnotherapy has also been used to help with irritable bowel (IBS) symptoms. Based on the evidence supporting its use with this condition, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Guidance (NICE) recommends the NHS should consider referring patients for hypnotherapy if their irritable bowel is persistent and has failed to respond to simple prescribed medicine.

After initially training in counselling work, William trained in hypnotherapy & psychotherapy with the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy. This training covers an integrative approach to therapy, which simply means that different therapeutic approaches can be employed to suit the specific needs of a client.

William is also qualified as a certified hypnotic fertility practitioner, and registered as an easybirthing® fertility specialist. He is registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council as a hypnotherapist, and is a member of the National Society of Hypnosis, Psychotherapy and Mindfulness.

Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation that can be used to facilitate inner change.  It’s a productive state of inner absorption where a natural learning state occurs from within. While in this state there is a measurable decrease in heart rate, blood pressure, breathing rate, stress hormone levels and muscle tension leaving you with a wonderful feeling of relaxation.  Hypnosis used in conjunction with Life Coaching , NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) & EFT(Emotional Freedom Technique) together are powerful tools to get to the heart of the problem allowing the body to return to a calm and balanced state.

Fertility to Natural Birth 

During our sessions, my aim is to help identify and resolve issues that may be preventing conception, we will explore conscious or unconscious resistance;

- Fears about pregnancy, birth & becoming parents

- Concerns about work vs family, finance

- Relationship issues

- Previous miscarriage, still birth or birth trauma

- Previous terminations

- Unresolved grief & trauma

These internal issues can affect work, friendships, family and relationships. Identifying and resolving them may clear your pathway to parenthood.  Fertility coaching will focus on preparing you for conception by helping you deal with;

- Making necessary changes in diet, lifestyle, exercise and sometimes smoking cessation.

- Working through emotions such as anxiety, anger, depression, guilt & jealousy

- Resolving relationship issues and increasing intimacy and affection

- Restoring self-esteem and self-worth and trust in one’s own body and building inner resources

- Working through unresolved grief and sometimes coming to terms with infertility.

What is EFT?


Developed by Gary Craig in the USA, EFT is the leading technique referred to as ‘Energy Psychology’ and has been developed from the ancient Chinese Meridian energy system. It’s a form of emotional acupuncture without the use of needles and is based on the premise that ‘all negative emotions are a result of a disruption in the body’s energy system’.


How does it work?


It works by clearing blockages or disruption by tapping on the body’s energy meridians (while thinking about a specific issue). The tapping sends pulses of energy to rebalance the body’s energy system in relation to the specific issue you were thinking about. Tapping while tuned into the issue is like rerouting the brain’s negative response and shifts the energy. EFT also works in the same way to release limiting thoughts and beliefs that stifle your health, happiness and life.
