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!

" Hello Chris, I came to visit you on Wednesday to discuss my drinking habit & was very nervous to be honest...not knowing what to expect as I'd never tried hypnotherapy ever before...I really enjoyed the session & it was surreal listening to your voice and recognising everything you were saying to me...I felt very relaxed after the session & on my journey home I was wondering whether I would actually stop drinking. That night was the first time in years that I didn't feel the urge to buy a bottle of wine on the way home... It's nearly a week since I came to see you and I've not felt the urge to buy or drink wine at the end of the day. Saturday felt strange as I almost felt guilty for not wanting to drink wine on a Saturday evening! It's only been a week since our session and I can honestly say I feel and look better...I will keep you posted on my progress and once again a very BIG thank you as I really didn't see a way out before I came to see you... Kind regards Sue 17/09/13 ".

The first thing you can expect from me is a warm welcome.  Then a professional, confidential service at very competitive rates!  But the most important thing is, I'm going to get rid of your problem for you as fast as possible.
