Hypnotherapy Altrincham & Manchester

Welcome to Great Minds Clinic. Whatever it may be that you need help with, well done, because you have already made the first most important step.

Solution Focused Approach

I help people to make significant, positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time. By using a combination of  solution focused hypnotherapypsychotherapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), counselling, and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming).

Solution focused hypnotherapy combines hypnosis with psychotherapy to look at what you would like to achieve, and focuses on the present and the future to achieve those worthwhile goals. Clients are encouraged towards a positive mindset, focusing on how they want things to be. It's in this way that clients can visualise and achieve a more enjoyable and fulfilled future.    

Solution focused hypnotherapy can help with a range of problems. Common areas are anxiety, stress, phobias, weight lossdepression, or a wish to improve confidence or self esteem. 

Hypnotherapy can help with all these, together with a number of issues including insomnia, to stop smoking or just for general relaxation. Panic attacks, addictions, agoraphobia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) along with minor phobias such as spiders, fear of the dentist, fear of flying, driving issues, can all be helped along with dealing with painful memories and traumatic experiences of the past.  

Hypnosis itself reduces anxiety, and this is done very simply through relaxation and visualisation, allowing the client to focus on the positive aspects of their life that encourage a shift in perspective.

How can hypnotherapy help you in your everyday life?

Clients come in to either Altrincham or Manchester to see if hypnotherapy can help them with a range of issues that they face. 

By working with these clients to provide a range of services, it allows them to break through problems and come out the other side a happier, healthier version of themselves.

Solution focused hypnotherapy services are available for clients throughout the Manchester and Altrincham area, so if you want to know more about how hypnotherapy can help you, let’s take a look at some of the most common reasons that people visit.

Anxiety and Stress

The most common problem is hypnotherapy for anxiety and stress. Hypnotherapy helps you to see things from a new perspective as well as to give you the confidence to develop new coping strategies and solutions. You will also learn how the brain works to create anxiety and stress, and what we can do about it in practical terms in everyday life.

Stopping smoking

One of the other most common reasons that people may book in for hypnotherapy is to help them to quit smoking. Whilst the decision to stop smoking may come easy to some, the connection to the act of smoking can be quite psychological, and emotional. This means that hypnotherapy is an ideal solution. It allows people to subconsciously understand that a future without the habit of smoking cigarettes is perfectly achievable.

Losing weight

Losing weight isn’t easy for those who have an emotional connection to food. Many hypnotherapy clients from the Manchester and Altrincham area will come for help with losing weight. Hypnosis can be a useful tool as it allows you to let go of the bad habits and negative beliefs that may have been acting as a barrier to any weight loss attempts previously. Not only this, but hypnotherapy allows you to replace these bad habits with much more positive approaches. It does this with the power of positive thinking, help with managing unhealthy cravings, and a positive attitude towards increased activity.


Do you live your life with a phobia? Sometimes these phobias do not interfere with every day activities. But there are times when they can have a negative impact. Fear of flying, fear of spiders and other phobias can be overcome with cognitive hypnotherapy techniques. Of course, there are some phobias that will be ingrained much deeper into your subconscious. These may need a more dedicated approach and may only be carried out by particular hypnotherapists. If you are in the Manchester area and believe you need phobia hypnotherapy then please get in touch.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Sounds strange, but hypnotherapy is known to have an impact on medical issues such as IBS. Whilst there are a range of causes that can increase the symptoms of IBS, one of the most common is stress. Feelings of prolonged or severe stress can cause the bowel to react. Causing spasms and violent contractions, the main symptom for those living with IBS. You can undergo hypnotherapy treatment to help with stress, which in turn should have a positive impact on any IBS symptoms that you may be feeling.

"R" from Sale, Cheshire "I had trouble with social anxiety. After my hypnotherapy sessions I went to a big wedding that I'd been dreading before, with around 300 guests. Instead of being nervous and clamming up, I felt calm and centred. I found myself making conversation a lot easier without thinking about being self-conscious."
"S" from Hale, Cheshire "Debbie really helped me. I couldn't be a passenger with my husband in the car. After my sessions I would have little practice trips, just to the supermarket or to the pub and back, as part of my planned treatment. Eventually we drove to Bolton to see old friends we'd not seen for years. There's no way i could have done that on my own"
"L" from Hale, Cheshire "I went to get hypnotherapy for depression. I didn't have any energy for anything and I felt hopeless. After a while I slowly but surely found myself doing things like re-joining the gym, and went back to my pilates classes. Then I started buying more healthy food, and my sleep patterns got better. I also got myself ready and went for a job interview which was a really big thing for me"
