About Hypnosis

Without even realising, most adults drift into hypnosis around 600 times each day. And children, 800 times. This is called awakened hypnosis.


It happens when you are comfortable or relaxed, your mind is focused and you become absorbed in what you are doing. Your awareness alters, you may lose track of time, not hear the phone or someone speaking and if you’re driving, not remember parts of your journey.


The only difference between awakened hypnosis and the one we use in treatment is that it is deeper, your eyes are closed and I guide you in.  

About Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic use of hypnosis. It is also known as clinical hypnosis.


Hypnotherapy is the only form of counselling or psychotherapy able to access all of the brain, rather than part of it, which helps make relieving or removing deep-rooted stubborn problems much easier.


Tests using brain scans show that the brain is much more active in hypnosis than at any other time. They also found neuroplasticity increases.

When other treatments struggle or fail, I can often help.

About Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are not the same. To help you understand what they are and how they work, here is what you need to know. They are both safe, natural and side-effect free.

What patients have to say after life-changing hypnosis treatment in Bolton

“Whilst in the midst of a breakdown Nigel was recommended to me by a friend. Nigel helped me through my difficulties step by step and recommended helpful techniques to me which I still find useful to this day. I found Nigel to be a very approachable, non-judgemental and empathic person and found the treatment I received to be very beneficial. I would highly recommend Nigel to anybody who seeks the services of a professional hypnotherapist”. Mr K of Bolton (Ref HTH)
