What issues can hypnotherapy help with?

With your will and commitment, hypnotherapy is a very powerful complementary therapy (in addition to any other professional help required).

Any issue with a psychological or behavioural component can be tackled. This includes many medical conditions, e.g., where pain, stress, worry, etc need to be managed.
Sometimes medical conditions can be alleviated through complex chains of psychological, behavioural and physiological changes. Not all of them are understood but one example would be clearing stomach ulcers by reducing stomach acid through hypnotic suggestions for stress management.
