J S HYPNOTHERAPY, Penarth,Vale of Glamorgan

“Balancing Life and Well-Being”

J S Hypnotherapy is a private hypnotherapy practice based in Vale of Glamorgan, near Cardiff. (Originally based in Newport, South Wales, for almost 10 years). Prices starting from £45* per session.

Hypnotherapy can be applied to issues.  I have a passion for working with people and can help YOU achieve your goals. I am a fully qualified hypnotherapist.  I also have  additional skills and qualifications in Guidance and Counselling, Psychology, Diet and Nutrition and Mindfulness – to support YOUR needs.

Hypnosis is a perfectly NATURAL and SAFE state between being awake and asleep .  My clients often experience a feeling of being in deeply relaxed state, and not dissimilar to daydreaming, and describe it as very pleasant.  You cannot be coerced into doing anything you don’t wish to do under hypnosis.

Hypnosis can be traced back to ancient civilisation.  It can be applied to a wide range of medical and psychological problems*, and also to enhance performance e.g. sport, confidence, public speaking, motivation, exams/tests.

Hypnotherapy is  one of the growing Complimentary and Alternative medicines (CAMs) used.  It can be used alongside medical treatments,  ie ‘Complementary’.  For example, with cancer treatments to help patients cope with the side effects of cancer treatments, such as pain and sickness.  A hypnotherapist will want to make it clear that hypnotherapy is not a “cure” for cancer, by any means.  However, there is plenty of evidence that hypnotherapy can help people with serious illnesses such as cancer, even if it is only to improve their quality of life for the time being.  The hypnotherapist will want to make it clear that he or she is not expecting to “cure” a person of cancer simply by taking them into a hypnotic trance. That said, there is plenty of evidence that hypnotherapy can help people with cancer, even if it is only to improve their quality of life for the time being.  https://www.hypnotherapists.org.uk/11304/hypnotherapy-for-cancer-care/  


Sometimes it is used  as an Alternative to medication.  For example, to help manage pain instead of medication – but it should never be used as an alternative option without taking medical advice.  There are various techniques a hypnotherapist may use, including reducing stress and relaxing  the nervous system to help it become less reactive to pain.   https://www.hypnotherapy-directory.org.uk/articles/pain-management.html#hypnosisforpainrelief

Hypnotherapy can help with many issues.  They include losing weight; stopping smoking;  stress and anxiety; pain management; habits (such as nail biting); fears and phobias (such as fear of flying; phobia of spiders); confidence; motivation; child birth (hypnobirthing); insomnia (sleeping problems) … and more – just ask me!

I will work with you and devise a tailor-made treatment plan.  This will involve a consultation  to assess your needs and requirements.  You are a unique individual- and so will be your treatment and experience. Counselling will run alongside your treatment, as required.  Similarly, aspects of Mindfulness may be included in treatment programmes, and for Weight loss, Diet and Nutrition advice.
