Help to quit smoking with hypnotherapy in Highgate*
The affects of stopping smoking aren’t simply physical; they are also psychological and emotional. Understanding the reasons behind the need to smoke can be the key to giving up the habit for good. At the Conway Practice in Highgate, Jonathan will help you to trace the origins of when you first became a smoker and why you have found it so difficult to stop. Hypnotherapy provides a natural way in which to overcome the addiction and to recognise the sub-conscious triggers to lighting a cigarette.*
You are no doubt well aware of the long term benefits of being a non-smoker and family or friends may remind you of this constantly in an attempt to persuade you to quit smoking. The true commitment must however come from you and as you can’t be made to do anything against you will while under hypnosis, the choice on whether to give up the habit remains within your control.* While your mind is relaxed and in a heightened state of awareness, negative thoughts can be neutralised and replaced with positive messages.*
Using hypnotherapy to bring about change, is beyond finding a method to give up smoking. By focusing on the habit rather than the nicotine dependence, Jonathan will guide you through a quit-smoking journey, enabling you to understand how changing your routine and avoiding the automatic prompts can diffuse the cravings.* Smoking may have become an instinctive habit as a form of social bonding with friends and colleagues and serve as a boost your self-confidence.
A cigarette can also be used as an antidote to dealing with stress and frustration, but although this may be briefly calming it doesn’t relieve the reasons for the anxiety.
With hypnotherapy, relaxation methods can be introduced, together with effective and healthy ways in which to manage stressful situations and control negative behaviour.* With a change of mindset, achieving your goal to stop smoking can be attainable.*
Conquer a Fear of Public Speaking with Hypnotherapy in Highgate*
Most people would say they have some sort of phobia and may be able to easily avoid putting themselves in a situation which would cause anxiety. However, when a phobic reaction affects the daily enjoyment of life this can become extremely stressful. One of the most common types of phobias is the fear of public speaking and contrary to wide opinion, this doesn’t necessarily relate only to speaking in front of an audience or a large group of people. Help to overcome this distress is available with hypnotherapy in Highgate at the Conway Practice, where the underlying cause can be established and negative thoughts replaced with positivity.*
You may find that you become anxious simply at the very thought of joining in with a conversation where you feel out of your comfort zone. This can be a form of a social phobia where you are afraid of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time and will embarrass yourself. Negative thought patterns may well have formed over a long period of time, with early life influences and past experiences now stored deeply in the sub-conscious. Classrooms are a prime example of environments where being pressured to speak in front of your peers can trigger a negative reaction remaining as a core belief that you are under threat from criticism.
Hypnotherapy in Highgate, North London can greatly improve your interview and presentation techniques, relieving the discomfort of physical reactions to fear, such as perspiring and palpitations or feelings of nausea.
During hypnosis the mind is far more receptive to positive suggestion and guided by Jonathan you will begin to readdress misbeliefs with positive affirmations. Perhaps negative self-talk has led you to believe that you will be judged badly on what you have to say and previous troubling incidents will continue when faced with a similar situation. This mindset can be changed with the help of hypnotherapy by focusing on an improved self image and increased motivation.

Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss in Highgate, North London*
If you are one of the many serial dieters switching regularly from dieting to a rapid return to bad eating habits, you may have come to appreciate that this isn’t the solution to maintaining a healthy weight. Quick fix or fad diets aren’t sustainable in the long-term and once the target weight has been reached for an upcoming event such as a beach holiday or a social celebration, it’s easy to slip back into old eating habits. Hypnotherapy for weight loss in Highgate at the Conway Practice takes a different approach by enabling you to understand your relationship with food and how the underlying issues can be resolved.*
What can you expect during a session in hypnotherapy? Hypnosis is very similar to a daydream, where you are only vaguely aware of your surroundings but still remain in complete control.* In this relaxed state, while the mind is far more open to positive suggestion and is free of distraction, Jonathan Conway will gently guide you to recall memories of events or influences held deeply in the subconscious which are now negatively impacting on your relationship with food.*
What does food mean to you? Is it a form of comfort or reward, a reminder of childhood and a family environment in which you first learned how much and what to eat and continues to dominate your eating habits? There are likely to be particular prompts for mindless snacking with no conscious awareness of how much is being consumed. Stress can affect preferences for high calorie and sugary food and is often a trigger to overeating. Once you have entered the state of hypnosis while your mind is more receptive to making beneficial behavioural changes, Jonathan will give verbal suggestions which can be absorbed to improve self-esteem and motivation, reducing stress and anxiety.* Hypnotherapy in Highgate, North London provides a safe solution for losing weight with the long-term benefit of healthy lifestyle changes.*

Lose Weight with Hypnotherapy in Highgate*
There are often certain times of the year which trigger a desire to lose weight and to get fit. Apart from the New Year resolutions, Summer days often motivate people into losing the extra kilos that may have been added during the colder months when it’s easier to disguise your body shape under layers of Winter clothing. Losing weight generally proves more difficult than putting it on and fad or crash dieting is rarely the solution.* Hypnotherapy in Highgate at the Conway Practice provides a safe and completely natural way to get your weight back under control.*
Jonathan Conway will discuss the reasons why you want to lose weight and what your personal goal is. You may be focusing on a Summer wedding or a holiday in the sun, or you may simply feel the need to be slimmer and fitter with a healthier lifestyle. During hypnosis Jonathan will help you to understand what causes you to overeat or why you are attracted to the wrong foods which contribute to weight gain.* Do you find that you eat when you are anxious during periods of stress? Comfort eating generally only brings a brief lift of mood, before guilt sets in and a negative relationship with food is established.*
Hypnotherapy in Highgate will help you to manage stress in your life through positive visualisation and relaxation methods.* You may relate to being fed with treats as a child when you were upset and subconsciously food is what you turn to now to make yourself feel better.* Emotional hunger can’t be satisfied with food and Jonathan will coach you in how to handle your cravings by recognising the triggers that may have sabotaged attempts to lose weight in the past.* Perhaps you find yourself eating through boredom and turn to food at certain times of the day without consciously being aware of why you do that.
Sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Highgate will address the deeper issues of your weight management and help you to increase your willpower to succeed in your weight loss with hypnotherapy, improve your self-esteem and know that everything is achievable if you believe in yourself and what you can accomplish.*

Hypnotherapy and NLP Coaching in Highgate
If you are considering seeking help through hypnotherapy in North London, Jonathan Conway combines hypnotherapy and NLP coaching in Highgate at the Conway Practice. You may be more aware of the beneficial affect that hypnotherapy has on the unconscious mind*, but have less understanding of NLP.
NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming and with the clue in ‘linguistic’ it refers primarily to the spoken word; what we say and how we say it. ‘Neuro’ relates to the mind and our words come from our thoughts, both positive and negative. There may be areas of your life where you are underachieving and although you probably say that you are ready for change, the words you use may give a different message.
How often do you find yourself using the cop out words ‘possibly’, ‘hopefully’, if I’m ‘lucky’, or I’ll ‘try’? You know for example when you’re talking to someone and they use phrases such as “I should be able to meet you” or “I’ll see if I can be there” that you won’t be able to rely on them as they aren’t fully committed.
During hypnotherapy and NLP coaching in Highgate, Jonathan Conway will evaluate your speech and thought patterns*. Although signals are given through the spoken word, body language is also a key and together they give a map to the mind. Often described as the science of achievement, NLP coaching will provide a set of insight and life-skills, facilitating clarity of thought and more effective communication*.
You will find it easier to manage your moods and behaviour and to think positively*. Combined with hypnotherapy, your subconscious negative perceptions can be changed, removing self-deceptive beliefs which have caused underlying problems*. Improving your own communication skills also empowers you to interpret how others communicate with you.
You will learn how to spot just how frequently metaphors are used in conversation, helping you to identify when true commitment is lacking*. This is invaluable not only in personal relationships, but also within a corporate environment, especially during negotiations.
Sessions in NLP and hypnotherapy enable personal and professional development and the ability ‘to do’ and not simply ‘aim to do’*.

Executive Coaching with Hypnotherapy in Highgate
Decision makers in a corporate environment can find it a lonely place to be at times, with few people to turn to for advice and support. Executive coaching in Highgate at the Conway Practice provides valuable help with improving personal performance and any issues which may need to be resolved*.
You may feel that you are expected to achieve at a high level day in and day out, possibly at the expense of your family and personal life.
When this pressure becomes too much and you’re expected to be almost super-human, it’s time to seek help to recognise the root cause of your stress in order to learn how to handle it positively. Hypnotherapy and NLP combine very effectively* with coaching sessions, enabling you to identify your career goals and understand how you can best achieve them.
You may feel that you have already reached the pinnacle professionally, but want to eliminate the pressure and perform more efficiently. At executive level colleagues may constantly turn to you for guidance and expect you to give the right answers. This can cause stress and anxiety if you feel unworthy of the confidence they have in you, or if your self-belief is poor. Or perhaps you feel you are ready to make a career move but find your personal presentation and interview skills are lacking.
These feelings can often be traced back to childhood when you may have felt under pressure to give the right answer in the classroom and were afraid you would be ridiculed by teachers and peers if you didn’t. Parental conditioning can play a significant part in how you now cope with challenging situations in the work-place.
Perhaps you were expected to over-achieve and meet their high expectations, or at the other end of the spectrum, were faced with parents giving little or no support to your ambitions, leaving you with low self-esteem.
During sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Highgate, the root cause of your anxieties will be identified and any fears you may have can be erased, enabling you to cope easily with stressful situations, increasing your motivation to succeed*. Improved management skills will ensure that your professional and personal life are well-balanced and that the improvement continues for the future*.
Hypnotherapy is extremely effective in reaching the deepest level of the subconscious mind, helping to re-tune the source of your negative emotions*. It is completely safe and you will remain relaxed and in control throughout.

How Hypnotherapy in Highgate Can Help With Your Fear of Public Speaking*
Do you need help to overcome your fear of public speaking When you’re faced with standing up and speaking in front of an audience, even a small one, your mind may go completely blank and a feeling of panic may set in.
That fear may be so powerful that your heart rate quickens, your breathing becomes shallow and you feel that you are close to collapse. This is actually a common phobia and can often be traced back to a conditioned belief or an upsetting incident that occurred earlier in your life.
Hypnotherapy sessions in Highgate help you to identify and recognise the root cause of your fear*.
The actual problem may not be the concern of whether you’ll remember what you have to say, it’s more likely to be a deep fear of receiving a negative reaction from your audience. In the past you may have felt that you were always being ‘put down’ or criticised by siblings, parents or teachers in the classroom in front of others.
This fear of public speaking may be limiting your professional life if you are expected to present to your superiors or talk at seminars. It may also inhibit your performance in interviews and restrict your chances of promotion if you have to present to a panel.
Students may avoid classes where they are afraid that they will perform badly if they have to explain their ideas or read out loud. This self-consciousness may also affect other situations when communication is necessary, such as asking a stranger for directions. This is especially the case when there is a combination of phobias; a fear of public speaking (glossophobia) and a social anxiety phobia.
What you are afraid of most, a negative reaction, is unlikely to happen. These unfounded fears can be helped through hypnotherapy and NLP, enabling you to overcome them and move forward*.
This will ultimately reduce your self-consciousness and increase your self-confidence*. Hypnotherapy and NLP sessions with Jonathan at the Conway Practice in Highgate are completely safe, leaving you in a relaxed state of mind and in control throughout.
Using the power of your own imagination, visualisation techniques will allow you to approach public speaking in a confident and calm state of mind*.

The Conway Practice Can Help With A Fear Of Flying in Highgate*
Have you missed out on a holiday this year due to being too nervous to travel? The Conway Practice provides help to overcome a fear of flying in Highgate, along with other travel fears*. One of the most common phobias, a fear of flying or aerophobia, affects around one in ten of the population.
It is often combined with other phobias, including a fear of heights (acrophobia), a fear of enclosed spaces (claustrophobia) and a fear of being away from a safe place, usually the home (agoraphobia).
It’s not surprising therefore, if someone finds themselves ‘trapped’ in an aeroplane for even a short flight with no means of escape or being able to retreat to a place of safety, panic can set in. The anxiety may even start with the anticipation of the journey, worrying about checking in at the terminal and what may happen during the flight. Often there is a fear of losing control and of being embarrassed in front of other passengers.
The media has a lot to answer for in being a catalyst to the fear of the aircraft crashing. You may have watched a film where the plane and the passengers were high-jacked or have seen graphic coverage of an air disaster in the news. No matter that statistics show air accidents are rare, the intense publicity may well remain vividly on your mind.
Your fear of flying could also have been linked to a stressful time in your life that coincided with a journey and you continue to subconsciously relate to those feelings or anxiety when you are travelling. The phobia often affects other forms of travel in situations where you have no personal control.
The same feeling of being unable to escape can occur on a train journey or even in a car when you are stuck in a traffic jam. You may be afraid of travelling alone or of losing your way, so you become extremely limited as to where you can go. Even daily commuting to work may become stressful.
Do you feel that your fear of flying or travel in general is severely restricting your life and separating you from visiting family and friends, or limiting your business opportunities? During hypnotherapy or NLP sessions in Highgate with Jonathan, the root of your anxiety can be identified, enabling you to fully understand and deal with your fears, allowing you to experience stress-free travel in a relaxed state of mind*.
