Chichester Hypnotherapy

Sussex Hypnotherapy -


Hypnotherapy is a completely safe, natural and non-invasive way to treat a huge variety of problems and issues, ranging from fears and phobias (fear of flying, of spiders, crowded places…people can develop irrational fears and phobias about almost anything), habits such as smoking or nail biting to depression, low self-esteem or lack of confidence; even medical conditions such as IBS can often be helped through hypnotherapy; in fact, the list is almost endless.

At Sussex Hypnotherapy we will always start with a conversation to discuss the problem and to explain in plain English how the therapy will go. Only when you are happy will we go on to the hypnosis.

If you have a problem or an issue, and you’re not sure about whether hypnotherapy might be of help, why not give us a no-obligation call  so we can discuss it.

Unusually, we like to combine hypnotherapy with some other ‘talking’ disciplines; sometimes coaching can be hugely beneficial either on its own or in combination with hypnotherapy. We also take a view that help should be available long-term, and so we can discuss a mentoring programme to help you continue to make the kind of progress you want to see in your life and career.

Hypnotherapy is simply having someone help you achieve a state of deep relaxation. You are always in control of your own actions, and no-one can make you do something you don’t want to. A safe and non-intrusive way to help you resolve many issues



Coaching is basically just a conversation with someone who asks questions and listens to your answers before asking the next question. It’s a quick and effective way of establishing what problems exist, and where they stem from.

Coaching is widely used in business, and can help increase productivity, cut down on absenteeism and staff ‘churn’.

When working with individuals, coaching can help to highlight those areas of life that are at the heart of a problem or an issue, but which may not be obvious to a casual observer.

Our unique blend of coaching and hypnotherapy is designed to allow the hypnotherapist to identify those aspects of daily life or of someone’s background that may be at the root of whatever might need changing, and help the client deal with issues quickly and effectively.

From a client’s point of view, it will seem to be nothing more than a chat, and it’s certainly not an uncomfortable experience. However, the coach/therapist will be listening and learning all the time, in order to offer the most effective treatment possible.


Mentoring, as we practise it, means that we will continue to help you and monitor your progress for as long as you want our help. We share our experience with you, so you don’t have to make unnecessary wrong moves in completing your journey to wellness.

Hypnotherapy & Depression

Depression is a huge and growing problem. indeed, you may have been affected yourself, or know someone who suffers from it.

But what IS depression? After all, the word ‘depression’  doesn’t really tell you much. Weather forecasters talk about ‘depression over the Atlantic’ or whatever and we know what they mean by that phrase, but what about when the word is applied to someone who has gone to their GP complaining about being tired and listless all the time? Or when someone just finds talking to others to be hard to cope with? What do we really understand about the condition called depression?

Getting a handle on what depression really is, and where it might stem from is a big first step in getting well again.

The old name for depression is maybe more helpful; nervous exhaustion was the term used until quite recently, and perhaps we should think about depression in those terms; a tiredness of, or stemming from the nervous system.

In most cases of depression, one of the main symptoms is tiredness, even exhaustion. There can be a feeling of hopelessness or ‘flatness’. Sometimes people suffer physical symptoms too and almost universally sufferers report that they spend time and energy worrying.

So what can hypnotherapy do to help?

First and foremost, hypnotherapy; and particularly hypnotherapy combined with coaching or counselling, gives the sufferer a chance to talk through how they feel with someone who won’t judge, and who really understands what’s going on.

Secondly, hypnotherapy allows the sufferer to focus on practical things that will help ease the condition; things like better regulated sleep and deeper relaxation which improve energy levels.

Of course, depression is a complex condition, and every person who has ever felt or been diagnosed as having depression experiences  something different, so what will work for one person may have the exact opposite effect for another. That’s why working with a hypnotherapist and coach is often more successful that other treatments, as the therapist is able to be flexible in their approach, and find the best way forward for the client rather than simply relying on one method or one course of action.

If you would like to know more about treating depression through hypnotherapy and coaching, please feel free to call or email for a no-obligation chat.
