Catherine Daycock Hypnotherapy

I used evidence based techniques to effect real change. I offer a wide variety of specialist and individually tailored hypnotherapy programmes Specialising in:- Anxiety and panic attacks Regaining confidence and independence following relationship breakdown and divorce Specific challenges and issues relating to Abusive Relationships – Verbal, physical, mental, emotional, sexual, coercive control. I recommend a multiple session treatment plan. We will have a consultation where you can tell me what the problem is, and we can discuss the different options together and come up with a treatment plan you are happy with. Although there is no ‘typical’ session, they tend to look like this: We will then try out at a couple of different hypnotic phenomena, for you to get used to going into hypnosis and to give you a frame of reference for our future sessions. We will then end with a short hypnosis which will prepare you for our following sessions. I will give you ‘homework’ to prepare or practice for the next session. These tasks are really important so that you can get the best out of your following session. All I ask of you is to adopt a fertile, receptive mindset and to really engage in the hypnotic process. I do off ‘One-off’ singular treatment sessions where there is a pre-arranged treatment, for example a ‘Stop Snacking’ session. These will begin with a pre-induction talk, where I can talk you through what will happen in the session, explain hypnosis and hypnotherapy to you, and where I can answer any questions and concerns you have. This will then be followed by a hypnotic phenomenon experience, to give you a taster of what being under hypnosis is like, before going on to the hypnosis proper and the treatment itself.

What do you love most about your job?

To see the change which occurs in people by the end of our time together. Not only can I help with the issue they present with, but I also do ESR - which stands for Ego Strengthening Routine - in sessions which helps with having more confidence, reduces stress levels and promotes better sleep. I also love teaching people hypnotic phenomena - such as getting them to believe a pen to stick to their hand!!! I love to see their expressions when they realise they have actually made it happen themselves!

What inspired you to start your own business?

After working as a financial contractor in the banking sector for over 10 years, I wanted a change of pace and the chance to work with and help other people. It was a highly targeted environment which I felt focused on numbers rather than people (both in terms of customers and staff), and I figured it was time to redress the balance!

Why should our clients choose you?

I use evidence-based techniques and approaches, which means I only use methods that can stand up to scientific rigour. I come from an academic background and apply this to my hypnotherapy practice. I use critical thinking to hypno-therapeutic techniques and only adopt the ones that have proven efficacy – meaning that the techniques and approaches I use can be backed up by academic research.

I will work with you, rather than at you. I see the therapeutic process as a journey we both go on together. In the very beginning we will agree on a treatment plan that we are both happy with, and then work together to achieve the desired goals, perhaps tweaking our treatment plan as we go, dependant on how we both feel it is going. I this way, I want you to be very much involved in your own treatment, to really engage in the process, so that at then end of your journey you can think “I did that! I made that happen!” This may mean that I give you ‘homework’, that is hypnotic or therapeutic exercises, which will help you to engage in the process and ultimately greatly improve the results you will see.

It can work for everyone

I believe that hypnosis, and thus being hypnotised, is a particular mindset we adopt. It can be learned, practiced and improved upon. I don’t believe that some people cannot be hypnotised. I see it rather as riding a bike – it is a skill to be learnt. Some may pick it up quicker than others, and that is perfectly ok, but ultimately everyone can learn to ride a bike given the right teacher, the right tools, and time.

In this way, I see my role as more of a teacher. To teach you how to adopt the hypnotic mindset, how to improve your skill, and how to enable you to attribute the effects to yourself and take responsibility for achieving the goals yourself.

How we will do it

As hypnosis is a skill you can learn, I will first work with you on experimenting with some hypnotic phenomena. That may sound a little scary, but really it is just a fun way of exploring and practicing everything I have discussed above. So, for example, I may get you adopt a particular mindset where we will get a pen to be stuck to your hand. And at the end of that exercise I would hope that you would come away amazed with yourself and thinking “I adopted that mindset, I connected with that, I stuck that pen to my hand myself!”

How it works

So how does that work in a therapeutic way? Well, it teaches you how to adopt the right mindset so that we can heighten your awareness and heighten your suggestibility, so that you are at your optimum state to be able to tackle and treat your issue(s).

I appreciate that this is not the conventional approach you may have been expecting from a hypnotherapist, as you probably have envisaged a dark room, a comfy couch, and some spa music playing in the background, as you lie back and try to relax. However numerous studies have shown that there is no correlation between being relaxed and ‘zoned out’ and being hypnotisable. In fact, you can be alert and use hypnosis, and many endurance runners can use hypnosis whilst running to control the pain and fatigue!

How many sessions it can take

I recommend that most issues you may come to me with you may expect to require between 3 and 6 sessions, although this is just a guideline. It is all dependant on the issue, the severity of the issue, the goals you wish to achieve and so on.

I do offer some singular session options for certain specific issues as I realise that not everyone can afford the cost or the time to be able to commit to a multi-session treatment plan. Whilst I don’t advocate a ‘quick fix’ approach, I can also see the benefits of a singular session in some instances, such as anxiety and weight loss. However, the singular session will only address a very specific aspect, and will not address underlying factors, which would need further investigation and treatment plans.

My Approach to Hypnotherapy

For those who are interested, I take a more socio-cognitive approach and a more evidence-based approach to hypnotherapy as I believe this is best for the client, and for the advancement of the field of hypnotherapy as a whole.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

Yes. I can do sessions online via Zoom, Skype or Microsoft Teams. You will need a quiet space where you will not be disturbed for an hour. You will also need a chair and somewhere to rest your laptop or phone during the session so that you can easily see me and I can see you (the top half of your body at least). I find that online sessions can also be more affective for people with anxiety, especially those who struggle with going somewhere new, using public transport, parking etc, as they can participate in the exact same session, but from somewhere they feel more at ease. I will carry this on even after Covid-19

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

All sessions are able to be done online. There is a half an hour gap between clients so that the room can be properly cleaned. Hand gel is provided for all clients to use. There is no waiting room where people are expected to wait by others in close quarters - you ring the intercom and I will come and meet you.

This will vary according to the level of experience and training that the hypnotherapist holds.

Your professional hypnotherapist will be able to advise you on the full range of therapies available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted hypnotherapist today.

Firstly, you'll have a conversation with your therapist to discuss what you hope to achieve and agree on what methods your therapist will use. Afterwards, the hypnotherapist may lead you into a deeply relaxed state using agreed methods to help you towards your goals. For example, suggesting that you don't want to carry out a certain habit gradually bring you out of the trance.

You are fully in control when under hypnosis and don't have to take on the therapist's suggestions if you don't want to. If necessary, you can bring yourself out of the hypnotic state. Most people expect to be put to sleep or to forget what happened afterwards but the opposite is true. You're fully aware the whole time of what is happening.

This is dependent on both your hypnotherapist and your circumstances. One-off services such as smoking cessation or gastric band hypnotherapy can last around two hours, while a general hypnotherapy session will usually take about an hour.

The duration of therapy will really be dependent on your circumstances and issues. Some people may require a longer-term approach with regular weekly sessions. Your hypnotherapist will let you know how many sessions they feel you might need when you start therapy and will be flexible when it comes to decreasing or extending the number of sessions according to your progress and needs.

There are currently no guidelines in place stipulating the training and qualifications a hypnotherapist must have in order to practice. Industry guidelines recommend that individuals should have completed at least an appropriate diploma or have completed a course that involved a minimum of 450 learning hours, of which 120 hours must have been face-to-face.

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark and Bark can show you reviews from past customers who have used their hypnotherapy services.

Hypnotherapy has repeatedly and consistently helped patients with a whole host of issues. It can help with anxiety, depression, anxiety, PTSD, obesity, addictions, fear of flying, public speaking, stopping smoking, insomnia, weight loss amongst others. When combined with methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), valuable healing work can begin as quickly as one or two sessions.

You might be surprised to hear that hypnotherapy can be delivered remotely over the phone, through an online video chat platform, or with pre-recorded sessions sent by email.
