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 the problem within 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.  There are a few private therapists in Manchester and Stockport who charge high rates, but you just don't need to pay all 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 sixteen 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!

" “ What is it we're dealing with, Jo?” Quitting smoking :-) “Have you been here before?” Yes I saw you just before Christmas to deal with panic attacks and negativity. Seems to have done the trick so just working through my list of problems to solve :-) And the next message was: SMOKING Marvellous. Not smoked one cigarette, no cravings... all good. Will be coming back soon for weight loss! xxx ".

The right attitude for success with hypnotherapy

Posted: 20 July 2022

"Tried hypnotherapy and I'm glad I did!"  Jason, 20/07/22 What follows is some recent feedback from a client who had never had hypnotherapy before, and was obviously a bit wary of it!   "I arranged and attended a hypnosis session after a brief telephone chat with Chris.  One of the questions I had, referred to the possibility that not everyone can be hypnotised." What does it mean to "be hypnotised"?  Well the old-fashioned idea of it - still a pretty common idea - is that one person 'hypnotises' another, which involves somehow exerting influence over them, maybe even "taking control.....
