My name is Pam Hewstone, I am a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, working from home in Waltham, allowing me to work evenings and weekends. Six years ago I broke my leg, recuperation time persuaded me to seek a career change. I believe things always happen for a reason. I studied with the LCCH (London College of Clinical Hypnosis) for over two years, gaining a Diploma and Practitioner Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis. I am on the NHS Directory of Complementary & Alternative Practitioners, a member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis and a registered practitioner for the Hypno-Band, the revolutionary weight loss system designed for those who have a high BMI, which creates a state of mind where the patient actually believes that they have had a gastric band fitted, without the obvious drawback of risk and excessive cost. Becoming a clinical hypnotherapist is one of the best things I have ever done. I couldn’t imagine life without this incredibly rewarding career. Teaching self-hypnosis enables a patient to maintain changes achieved in therapy, achieve other realistic changes and simply relax and recharge the batteries. It is excellent for blood pressure and quite simply an altered state of awareness. Hypnosis is a safe, useful therapeutic tool, often successful where conventional treatments have failed. I am obviously not allowed to say that I can cure anything but in general terms it can be effective in conditions involving emotional factors, where behaviour patterns need changing. It can help break unwanted habits, obtain relief from digestive problems, panic attacks, phobias, emotional and sleeping problems, increasing self-confidence and is highly effective for weight control. Before becoming a practitioner for the Hypno-Band system, I treated many weight loss patients but I could never have imagined the success that the Hypno-Band could achieve. One patient has just reached a weight loss of 3.5 stones. Just before the New Year the Grimsby Telegraph did an article on me about the Hypno-Band, since when I have been inundated with new patients. I offer a free consultation before the 5 session technique, and recently have had one patient lose 1 stone in 5 days between the free consultation and the first session without any therapy! Hypnosis is effective with weight issues because the emotional content of the issue can be addressed. Over eating can be a habit, a conditioned response learned from childhood, but there is often an emotional reason why a patient over eats, and this is generally not addressed with basic diets nor indeed the actual gastric band surgery. To that end, I have encountered more abuse cases since using the Hypno-Band technique than for the whole time I have been in practice. If any members would like to give me a ring, send an email or book a free consultation I’d be pleased to answer any questions that you may have. Details can be found on my website:-
