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 ten 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!

" As promised, I am contacting you to let you know how I've got on since my back-up session with you for stopping smoking on March 20th. I am very happy to say that I have had no desire to smoke and I have not smoked since that day! ".

Panic, anxiety and insomnia

Posted: 25 September 2015

Panic attacks, acute anxiety and sleeplessness are stressful and exhausting, especially if they persist.  Medication can help temporarily but it does not address the cause, or causes, of these emotional issues so in the long run it can just lead to drug dependency as well as the original problem. Hypnosis – contrary to popular belief – is not just about ‘relaxation’!  It is a way of communicating with the part of the brain that controls the sleep cycle, and emotional reactions too.  Hypnotherapy is the only way to get detailed messages to.....

Drinking weekends and holidays only

Posted: 14 September 2015

Here's an interesting question: "Hello Chris,   I'm thinking about trying to give up drinking on week days but not on holidays and weekends. If this is a possibility do you have a Saturday morning slot or is it best to do the treatment on a day when you can see if it works?"  M.E. If your drinking has become habitual, then it is the Subconscious mind that uses the craving system to remind you when it is "time for a drink".  Alcoholics Anonymous would tell this person that because they drink every day, and cannot.....
