If these questions have struck a chord then...

Hypnotherapy could be your fast, effective solution.

Transform your life fast with

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy.


CB Hypnotherapy is a short-term therapy focused on how to get better TODAY. 

It’s one of the smartest methods available for you to regain control of those areas of your life that are troubling you.


CB hypnotherapy is effective because it opens you up to more helpful ways of feeling, thinking, and behaving. Through deep, hypnotic concentration you can reset your mind to be your greatest life ally. 

From the comfort and safety of the therapy session, you practise new thought patterns, and experience how this changes your feelings and frees your actions.


When you face the situation you want to change in reality, your mind and body adopt the new mental and physical pathway that you have experimented during the sessions. The old negative reactions become redundant.

Hypnosis is completely safe and natural. It’s a state of mind where you concentrate intensely on a particular thought, situation, or feeling. You remain in control throughout the whole process while the hypnotherapist helps you to discover and engage your own internal healing resources.


Hypnotherapy has a life-changing, long-lasting effect. In just a few sessions, using the power of your mind and motivation, you’ve done what you thought was impossible! You have freed yourself from your challenges, gained self-confidence, and now have a ‘toolbox’ of skills to hand when you need them.

​Yes, it really does work!

Thank you Morag for supporting me through a wobbly phase. I found the hypnotherapy very helpful. Your approach is calm and positive and containing. It's so nice to have someone really listen and I thank you for that. I found the exercises really useful and they provided me with a clear positive direction to move in, whilst managing some difficult feelings. I have really appreciated the added bonus of the Bootcamp and I feel I have received a very personalised service, delivered with real care. I would recommend Morag to anyone who needs some support.

I went into this not really knowing what to expect but feeling happy to give it a go as Morag was recommended by a friend.  During the initial phone call that we had I immediately felt that Morag was someone I could trust and would be comfortable talking with, she took the time to delve into what I was struggling with, but not in an intrusive way.  I remember feeling more positive after that initial call than I had in months, and that was before we had started any of our sessions.  Now at the end of the process, I still feel positive as well as more confident, more self-assured and happier.

Fritha, Switzerland

You helped me feel at ease from the outset. Sessions were planned around the times that worked for me, from the comfort of my sofa. You heard what I was saying, and acknowledged my thoughts and feelings, and then provided a wealth of theory and resources to help me make better sense of this, and activate positive changes. It’s so helpful to understand CBT and know that most people have these thoughts and feelings, a great first step to change. Also works so well with the mindfulness and hypnotherapy aspect. I haven't explored hypnotherapy before and was surprised at how deeply relaxed I could feel. Whilst still being fully present. There are so many resources I now have access to, to use as and when I need them, and which have provided great insight into what is happening for me in the moment. I have a calmer and more confident approach to things now, and can draw on some of the resources in my everyday life. Thank you Morag,

Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy FAQ

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a mindset or 'state' of deep concentration that lets you focus on different thoughts, feelings, or situations.

Everyone can learn this lifelong skill that connects you to the power of your mind. The hypnotic mindset is similar to the one you have when you’re totally absorbed in a film or a book and you're living the scenario.

You can either be guided into hypnosis during a hypnotherapy session with your hypnotherapist and/or learn self-hypnosis.

Hypnosis frees your mind and imagination from its normal constraints. You step off the hamster wheel and let your imagination flow.

What is hypnotherapy?

When you work with a hypnotherapist, she uses the hypnotic mindset and her suggestions, and imagery to guide you to imagine certain situations that you want to change, stop or develop.

You practice new behaviours, see yourself thinking and feeling differently.

Hypnotherapy can be used to help you

Overcome anxiety and stress

Overcome fears, and phobias.

Stop unwanted habits, 

Relieve chronic pain.

It is a process that you do with your hypnotherapist, you're very much an active participant in the therapy.

Is hypnosis mind control?

No, you're always in control of your own mind. If anything, CB hypnotherapy helps you gain a greater understanding as you take a step back and explore your mind.

The therapist suggests ideas that you have often worked on and discussed prior to the hypnosis part of the session, you are free to accept these or not.

Am I in a trance?

No, when you're in a hypnotic mindset, you're deeply focused on a particular subject, idea, or image. This undivided attention gives hypnosis its strength. You can test in your imagination the changes to your actions thoughts, and feelings that will help you with your challenges in the 'real' world. 

What is cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy?


CB Hypnotherapy is a short therapy that focuses on how to get better and feel better today. Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy is based on the way thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, and actions are interconnected.


Negative thoughts and feelings can lead to you feeling trapped in a vicious cycle. With CB hypnotherapy, you discover the strength, resilience, and adaptability of your mind. You discover that the problems you thought were with you for good can be resolved! 

it's a very practical, down to earth and evidence-based therapy.

Will I see and feel the benefits quickly?

CB hypnotherapy is a short-term therapy. Clients often feel and observe the benefits in their life after the first session. This is a therapy that always gives you a greater feeling of confidence and self-efficacy

Can I get stuck in hypnosis?

No, once the hypnosis part of the session is finished, the therapist will gradually bring your mind to focus on the room you are in and the feeling of your body. Even if this were not the case, you would gently come back to the present just as when you daydream.

Can hypnotherapy work online?

Hypnotherapy can be practised either in person or online - its effectiveness is the same. Online is the ideal solution when you want to fit sessions around your schedule and not spend time travelling to and from sessions. Using easily available video conference tools we can see each other clearly and establish a warm environment together. My clients have all appreciated this solution.
