Central Hypnotherapy Stockport

Welcome to Central Hypnotherapy! Based in offices in Market Place, Town Centre, Stockport since 2001, Central Hypnotherapy specialises in providing expert help with all sorts of issues, eliminating them in a single session wherever possible.  Stopping smoking, weight loss, alcohol, gambling addiction, drug habits and phobias are just a few of the issues we can sort out rapidly and safely with hypnosis. So why do it the hard way?  

Consultant Hypnotherapist Chris Holmes prefers to let his clients speak for themselves. The prestigious law firm Keoghs Solicitors first engaged his hypnotherapy services for their employees in early 2002, and the programme was so successful that it continued for nearly three years, instead of the two weeks originally planned!  All sessions were paid for by the company and the following quote is from their assessment of the results: 

"We sought feedback from all who have attended and the results have been phenomenal. There have been numerous complimentary remarks about Chris and his ability to convey confidence in the whole process. We have received many notes of thanks from employees who claim the session to have been a life-changing experience." Frances Cross, Director of Human Resources, Keoghs Solicitors. (2005)

Phenomenal?  Life-changing?  Must cost a fortune, right?

Wrong!  It never ceases to surprise me that many people seem to expect hypnotherapy to cost hundreds of pounds - it doesn't!  Of course there are a very small number of persons out there who charge very high rates, but you just don't need to pay that to get brilliant results.  Just look at the Keoghs review above: that's an independent assessment by a very prestigious law firm of the outcomes of hundreds of sessions involving over 150 staff members over a period of about three years.  And that was in 2005 - I've had another eight years of experience since then!  So call now for more information about rates and availability - no-obligation!  0161-474-8120  or call/text  07748 838 644 any time.     

About Chris Holmes

My name is Chris Holmes and I have been a full-time professional hypnotherapist since August 2000. I am currently registered as a Senior Practitioner on the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR). Since launching Central Hypnotherapy in Stockport Town Centre I have personally helped thousands of people from all over Stockport, Manchester, Tameside and Cheshire reach their goals.

My original training in hypnotherapy was with the respected Washington School of Clinical and Advanced Hypnosis in 1999 but prior to that I had been a Lecturer in the English Department of Manchester Metropolitan University for six years, so as well as attending many courses and trainings in hypnotherapy since then I have also run courses myself and taught both beginners and other qualified hypnotherapists too.   

I love being a hypnotherapist. Most clients are new to the subject and do not know how much - or how quickly - hypnosis can help them. Whenever possible, I will get rid of their problem in just one session. This naturally amazes people, especially if they have had the problem for many years.  Some problems might take longer to eliminate but the only way to find out is to ask! 

For more information call now on 0161-474-8120 or call text any time, any day (including evenings and weekends!) on 07748 838 644. You'll be glad you did!

" Hi Chris You said to give you feedback and to let you know how I was getting on… It has been 4 days and 6 hours since my last cigarette! For the first few of days at every trigger point I thought about it – when I left your office, walking down the stairs I thought about it – the main thing I suppose is I don’t want one, the thought is more I would of/could of/ had a cigarette then/now. But I’ve no cravings, no withdrawals, no over eating and as far as I am aware no further habits forming in its place. And with each day the number of times I’ve thought about it are reducing. ".

I only smoke when I drink

Posted: 22 October 2014

Most tobacco smokers smoke at any time, but a few only smoke when they drink alcohol.  This may be because they started smoking in the pub and never developed the habit of smoking anywhere else - or it may be because they have quit, to a large extent, but smoking is associated with boozing and there is a temptation kicking in once alcohol gets into the system. This proves what I have always argued about tobacco - that it is a compulsive habit, not a drug addiction as of course you can't just be addicted when you go to the.....
