Clinical hypnotherapy

At the Soulfull Living Academy we can help you to improve your quality of life through tailored one to one sessions in person or online

Re-gain control of your weight


Many people struggle to maintain their ideal weight. Modern society bombards you with tempting treats, fast food/gourmet food and you wash it all down with plenty of alcohol. All of which are laden with calories which aren’t being burnt off in our increasingly sedentary lives.

Then maybe your thoughts on your body image run amok:-

  • If only I was slimmer/could put weight on then I would get ….. the perfect man/woman/job

Then your emotions follow those thoughts and kick in with:-

  • I hate my body
  • Clothes shopping gets me down because of my shape/size

Then you start your destructive cycle with food all over again!

BUT it doesn’t have to be this way. Hypnotherapy combined with coaching is an effective modality for taming your thought processes and in turn your emotions.

I know because I’ve been there and now by using hypnotherapy my weight is steadily melting away.

Through a programme of sessions, typically 5-6, I will work with you to discover your trigger points, to put alternative strategies in place and using hypnotherapy will re-programme your sub-conscious thoughts to be supportive rather than destructive.

Sessions are typically 1.25 – 1.5 hours long and are available in Duoon or Innellan, Argyll or online and cost £55 per session or you can pre-pay for blocks of  sessions and receive a discount. 

A group programme is available both in-person and online.

Get in touch to explore whether this could be the solution for you.

Phobias & Fears

Spiders? Umbrellas? Moths? Heights? Glass floors? Being sick?…. what’s yours?

Many people have a phobia of something… or at least a discomfort.

For some it becomes a debilitating condition, ruling their lives, affecting their day to day activities to such an extent that they can’t carry out usual daily tasks.

If this is you then clinical hypnotherapy can help – you don’t have to keep living in fear.

In just a few sessions, typically 2, you can re-gain control of your thoughts and feelings in response to your trigger – whatever that is! Imagine being free of worry. Free of not having to control your surroundings and of wondering where the next trigger might come from.

By using clinical hypnotherapy I can support you to re-programme your sub-conscious so that you have a normal ‘healthy’ response instead of an over-active one.

Sessions take place in Dunoon or Innellan, Argyll or online via Zoom and last up to 1 1/4 hours (the first session is usually longer at no extra cost) and cost £55.

If you’re ready to take back control over your phobia then get in touch to find out how I can help.

Anxiety & self-esteem

We all have times when our confidence gets dented… perhaps you’ve been struggling for some time and now it’s becoming a bigger problem and affecting more areas of your life?

Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool to help you to harness the power of your sub-conscious and re-gain your super powers! It can be used to boost your confidence in specific situations, e.g. giving presentations, or to generally boost your level of self-esteem and reduce your anxiety levels.

Stress management

Feeling stressed is a normal part of life, it’s our natural ‘flight or fright’ response to certain situations. Increasingly though, our fast paced and highly pressurised lives are leading to this response being permanently ‘on’ leading to ill health and time off work.

Hypnotherapy can support you to manage your response to stress  and put you back control of your life.

Stop Smoking

An average smoker spends £150 per month (based on smoking 10 per day) on their habit – is this you? Or perhaps you spend more?

Not to mention the health problems being stored up for the future. There are 4,000 poisonous chemicals in tobacco smoke entering your lungs every time you take a drag on a cigarette. Plus the impact of passive smoking on those around you.

  • Perhaps you’ve tried to give up smoking before just using your will-power or patches?
  • Perhaps you’re worried that if you stop smoking you will replace the activity that your hands are used to making by snacking on food?

Clinical hypnotherapy is now widely recognised as an effective method to support you to stop smoking and with the method I use you will easily choose healthy alternatives rather than snacking on food.

Using a proven method combining hypnotherapy and NLP/CBT techniques, in just 3 sessions you could be rid of your habit – if you’re committed to giving up.

Working over 3 sessions enables other contributing issues to also be addressed such as stress/anxiety etc.

The cost for 3 sessions is £147.

If you’re ready to stop smoking and this appeals to you then get in touch and we can explore whether clinical hypnotherapy will be a good option for you.
