Central Hypnotherapy Stockport, Manchester U.K.

Welcome to Central Hypnotherapy!

Based in offices in historic Market Place, Town Centre, Stockport (South Manchester) since 2001, Central Hypnotherapy specialises in providing expert help with all sorts of issues, eliminating them in a single session wherever possible.  Weight loss, drug and alcohol issues, stopping smoking, phobias and anxiety attacks, gambling addiction and emotional problems 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!  Or at least, not if you come here.  A few private therapists in Manchester and Stockport charge 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 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 thirteen years of practical experience since then, and you never stop learning because every client is different.  So call now for more information about rates and availability - no-obligation!  0161 474 8120 (Office Hours), or call/text 07748 838 644 any time, any day.     

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 0161 474 8120 (Office Hours) or call/text 07748 838 644 any time, any day.  You'll be glad you did!

" Hi Chris, Just wanted to let you know how I’m getting on just 3 days after my hypnotherapy session. Friday: I went straight to ASDA and bought a big healthy shop. Didn’t go out Friday night but didn’t feel the urge to drink at home either. Only ate half my tea and felt stuffed! Saturday: Banana & Yoghurt for breakfast, small chicken & bacon salad tub for lunch. At night I was at my Mum’s birthday party where I only had a bowl of chilli & rice and drank fruit juice – no alcohol. Sunday: Brunch of sausage, scrambled egg & toms – only ate half – and for tea, savoury rice with beef. No inclination to snack, drink diet coke or alcohol so I’m feeling pretty good about this! Thanks so much, Bev Jan 5th 2014 ".

Stop Smoking in One Session

Posted: 18 December 2017

The email was headed Fear of Flying, but it began with this:"Hi Chris,  About four years ago I had a single hypnosis session with you to stop smoking.  I went from 20 a day to absolutely nothing and I haven't touched one since.  I can't thank you enough!   G." So when I emailed back to explain that phobias are even easier to sort out, I asked if it would be OK to quote that smoking feedback on the website just to show everyone how easy stopping smoking without weight gain is when you use hypnotherapy.  She.....

Consistent success with hypnotherapy

Posted: 26 October 2017

Some people are so impressed with the way hypnosis eliminated their problem that they recommend it to all and sundry, and it's nice when that pays off consistently.  U.B. wrote: "Well over the past 4 years I've had a few issues I wanted to eradicate. I tried Chris with his hypnotherapy.  As soon as I left his office I was totally gobsmacked.  It was simple and so effective, with a bad habit gone within an hour.  "I couldn't praise this enough, therefore I have sent over 10 of my employees to see him... miracle worker, nonfiction pure fact.  The only.....
