sunset Curative Hypnotherapy in York

What is Curative Hypnotherapy?

The use of hypnosis and investigation to find and correct the cause of problems for the relief of conditions, symptoms and issues.

Do you recognise any of these concerns?


In spite of doing all the right things, or doing your best to, the weight stays the same or worsens - or maybe you get initial, encouraging, but only short-lived improvement.


A moth, a spider, a mouse, or some other apparently benign creature or object can send you into a panic.

Food Allergies

Some food you used to enjoy begins to make you ill, even though it has no adverse effects on others.


A worrying incident on a flight has a lasting effect on you - long after the other passengers have got over it, maybe even forgotten about it - and now you'll do anything to avoid getting on a plane.

Well-known treatable illness

It's routine and for most people, the reatment is simple with long-term success, but you find no improvement, or only temporary relief.


You can manage just about everything else in your life successfully but, whether it's alcohol, cigarettes, chocolate, gambling, drugs or something similar, your willpower and determination aren't enough to fully rid you of those urges and cravings.

Mysterious illness

The symptoms are quite common but blood tests and other investigations rule out any diagnosis - so the only option is pain relief.


Your quantity and quality of sleep has started to deteriorate so you find yourself lying there, noticing each waking hour - fatigued and weary but wide awake.

Curative Hypnotherapist - Qualified at Therapy Training College, Birmingham.

It's a big decision. I'm sure you are wondering what is the best type of treatment for you, and who would be the best therapist to work with.

To help you, I offer a free initial consultation. We take about 30 minutes to discuss what you want help with and how we would work on it.

There is no obligation - you decide what is best for you. All that I ask is that you allow up to 90 minutes and £ 40 fee in case you decide to start there and then.

I'm currently working online only, via Zoom/Skype, and since March 2020, clients have been finding it convenient. The results I've seen have been as good as those from in-person sessions. If you are unsure or unfamiliar with video calling, I can help you set up and try it out prior to the first session.

To book an initial session, please ring or email me some day/times when you are available and I will send you an appointment to fit in with you where possible.

Fees - £40. Please allow 45 to 60 minutes - up to 90 minutes for initial session.

Payment by Paypal or BACS/online

Please give at least 48 hours notice of changes to appointments or cancellations.
