hypnotherapy - Dr John Barry
Description of Therapy:
One-to-one hypnotherapy by an experienced and well-qualified practitioner. I started practicing clinical hypnosis in 1999 and am a Chartered Psychologist.
Specific Conditions Treatable:
Stop smoking, build confidence, overcome fears and phobias.
I have published research in peer-reviewed journals on specific approaches for men and women (e.g. http://discovery.ucl.ac.uk/1564725/ ). For example, I have developed a six-session relaxation therapy for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) (details here http://discovery.ucl.ac.uk/1567722/ ).
Benefits of the Therapy:
I use evidence-based approaches to therapy.
How it works:
In general, relaxation and guided imagery with post-hypnotic suggestions to help you to achieve your goals.
What happens in a Session:
After an initial assessment of your issue (or after the first session, an assessment of your progress), hypnotherapy is used to help you feel deeply relaxed and ready to accept goal-focused and positive suggestions.
Length of Session and availability:
Sessions last 50-60 minutes usually. I also do a one-stop smoking session that lasts two hours.
My prices in Bury St Edmunds are £80 per session, or £200 for the one-stop smoking session (two hours).
