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!

" Good afternoon Chris I had to let you know what a wonderful night out I had last night! I arrived at 8pm, left at 2am, wore my best dress, drank a glass of prosecco and half a light beer, danced for over an hour with a friend to the band and chatted to my friends and met new ones that I will be going out with later this month now. I had a wonderful evening and all thanks to you. I can't thank you enough, you have changed my life. I have to admit I was a little dubious because I didn't feel any different when I arrived at the pub for the party but I didn't even think about the alcohol, I sipped it slowly, people around me drank two and three even four drinks whilst I was still on my first. I am eternally grateful to you for having made me feel in control of my own drinking and my life. You have changed the habit of over thirty years in an hour. I am a very happy party-goer now and will recommend your hypnotherapy service to everybody. Basically it's the best investment in myself that I have EVER made. Thank you again Chris. ".

"My husband had developed a phobia with needles and he was very nervous to go for a blood test.After some research we booked a session with Chris at Central Hypnotherapy, but my husband was very skeptical about it working. "One session helped him to have a blood test without being nervous or panicking.  Chris has been very helpful and made him feel comfortable during the session.  Thank you Chris for your help in answering all my queries and having a chat with my hubby before his session.  We really appreciate your help.   Saima"   So many outcomes demonstrate that it.....

The Current Situation

Posted: 03 April 2020

STILL OPEN!  EVEN IN A 'FULL LOCK DOWN'! If you're reading this you may be wondering whether hypnotherapy is currently available!  The short answer is yes!   Hypnotherapy is alternative medicine, and professional vocational medical services of many kinds - including audiology, podiatry and chiropody, opticians, dentists and physiotherapists are likewise exempt from the current list of businesses that are required to close. This makes a lot of sense, because hypnotherapy routinely and quickly eliminates all kinds of specific problems that no other therapy can resolve, often in a single session, as many of the blog posts on this site.....
