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 fourteen 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!

" “If you’re reading this, you’re probably seriously considering using hypnotherapy to make a change in your life. If you want to regain control over something in your life that you feel has fallen outside of your control, then a session or two with Chris is one of the most effective things you can do. After just a couple of hours of treatment, I feel in control of my alcohol consumption for the first time in years. What really impressed me was Chris’s obvious expertise in this area and his ability to adapt his treatment to meet my requirements. It has really opened my eyes to what hypnotherapy can achieve. I’d recommend Chris to anyone looking to make a positive change in their life.” Dan ".

The Key to Success with Hypnotherapy

Posted: 24 January 2020

The outcome of any hypnotherapy session is controlled by the brain of the client.  When people say: "I'm in two minds about that!" it is because they feel like there's a battle going on in their mind: part of them wants to change, part of them doesn't.  This is a conflict between the conscious mind and the Subconscious. Now, the only reason this happens is because the conscious mind is better informed, it knows something that the Subconscious doesn't.  For example, too much alcohol can damage your liver, or tobacco smoking can cause cancers.  The frog phobia is irrational, it.....

Quit smoking easily with hypnotherapy

Posted: 05 October 2019

Hi Chris, six months ago on April 1st you helped me to stop smoking.  After trying pretty much everything on the market, and failing, I decided to try hypnosis. "I didn't want to leave a review straight away in case a few months later I started smoking again.  I am very happy as I haven't smoked or thought about smoking since!  I can honestly say your service succeeded where all others failed. "I have told many colleagues and friends about hypnotherapy since and will continue to do so.  This actually works and my health has improved massively, so thank you! .....
