Hypnotherapy can help to change your mind!  

Whether that is a simple change such as getting over lack of confidence about flying, stopping smoking etc. or a more complex change like getting rid of anxiety  or having more confidence in yourself or being more decisive.  The therapy depends upon the condition, as do the number of sessions you will need.

Hypnotherapy is not about being put into a 'trance' and giving up control.   Hypnotherapy involves  entering into a very relaxed state  during which you are aware of what is going on around you.   Under therapeutic hypnosis you cannot be made to do anything you do not want to do.

Some feedback

Andrea was recommended to me by a friend who had been to see her for Hypnotherapy with a great deal of success. 
After a few sessions I was able to realise and overcome problems I have been struggling with for years and the emotional baggage I'd been carrying around with me all that time seemed to suddenly fall away. J.V.

I can't recommend or thank Andrea enough. I wish I had been to see her years ago!.

Thank you Andrea.

As always a visit to see you has meant that life is once again, much calmer. M.J.


Andrea helped me when I was going through a number of anxiety related issues, back between 1998-2000.

I am so glad to see she still practises as she worked very patiently with me. I still use a number of the techniques she taught me to calm my day to day stresses. 

Andrea - I moved out of the school and now have a job in education elsewhere. Your confidence in me, gave me confidence in myself. Thank you for those hours of support I spent (mentally) in the "green room with the gold bed" - I still go there occasionally :)

I have had several therapies at the centre which have all been enjoyable and therapeutic.M.D.

However I must say that hypnotherapy with Andrea was the begining of the end in terms of negative behaviours and thought processes I had learned. Via a relaxing, calming and safe environment I was able to address some issues that had been detrimental to my life which also impacted upon my family.

I cannot thank Andrea enough as she is avaialble for a chat and cuppa [herbal] when I drop in. Barry is also very welcoming as are all the therapists.

I highly recommend the centre and would advise anyone thinking of a therapy to go along and have a chat.


I have had hypnotherapy with Andrea Lowe to help me deal with anxiety attacks that were becoming increasingly debilitating, I have never looked back from these sessions. If I had not been to see Andrea I know my life would be very different, probably a never ending cycle of antidepressants and other types of medication. There was no magic cure but wise guidance and definitely a magic touch, changed my life! Highly recommended.

The Croydon-born star is keen to have her first baby with musician boyfriend Jamie Hince, The Sun reports.

“Kate is aware that she smokes heavily and probably drinks a little too much. So she has been to see a Harley Street therapist to help her break those habits,” a source tells the UK newspaper.
“Jamie is keen to start a family and Kate knows that it would be wise to try to conquer her vices before she gets pregnant again.

“She’s really been enjoying her sessions and has already begun to see the benefits.“ Her daughter Lila has been hinting that she wants a sibling and Jamie has made it clear that he’d love to be a dad.

“Now Kate is coming round to the idea of having another child and the first step on the process is to cut out her bad habits.”

Fergie (Black Eye Peas' singer) loves hypnotherapy!


"I do hypnotherapy, which is a really big thing in my life. It works well with me because you go back into your subconscious and there are positive suggestions that are said to you. It really works for me."

Singer Fergie has turned to hypnotherapy in order to deal with her meth cravings.
Fergie says that, even though she hasn't taken dope since she was a kid, she still needs treatment.
"It wasn't a quick fix, it was years of work and it's continual. You don't go in and out of rehab and then you're done. I constantly work at things.

The Black Eyed Peas singer turned to a hypnotherapist to get her life back on track after becoming addicted to crystal meth. The singer, real name Stacy Ferguson, decided to seek help after spiraling out of control.
She explains, "I started going a little nuts and hit rock bottom. I called my mom and told her I had been doing crystal meth for a year and I moved back into my old bedroom as a 25-year-old. I had a collection agencies after me - I had spent all my money."
The singer decided to seek treatment and found hypnotherapy helped her recover from her addiction.

Britain's Prince Harry to use hypnotherapy to stop smoking Britain's Prince Harry has turned to hypnotherapy to help him give up his addiction to cigarettes.

A source told Britain's News of the World newspaper: "He has been feeling the pressure, and as a result he has turned back to cigarettes.

"Harry knows that it doesn't look good to younger people who look up to him. He is really trying to quit."

Mandy Moore hypnotized!

The singer/actress' release Amanda Leigh hit U.S. shelves on Sunday and the star marked the launch by playing an intimate gig for 280 lucky fans in Los Angeles the night before.
But Moore was so terrified about taking to the stage she sought the help of a hypnotherapist before the show.

Eva Mendes helped by hypnotherapy

Actress/model Eva Mendes had to have hypnotherapy to overcome her arachnophobia - an irrational fear of spiders - which started when she was a child.

Lily Allen:"hypnosis helped me lose weight"

Lily Allen has something to smile about. She has been flaunting her newly svelte figure all over Paris fashion week. So how did the British songbird drop from a 12 to an 8? Hypnosis.

Allen slimmed down with the help of Susan Hepburn, an accredited hypnotherapist and psychotherapist who charges approximately $600 an hour to implant subconscious messages into clients' minds reminding them to stop eating when they feel full. According to the Daily Mail, Hepburn also teaches clients to associate healthy activities, such as working out in the gym, with happiness.

"After the hypnotism, I want to go to the gym every day, otherwise I feel really bad,” Allen, 22, said. “I just want to get more toned and healthy. I'm really good about everything at the moment -- I've never been happier.”

Allen's self-confidence certainly has increased since last spring. In May, the "Smile" singer posted a melancholy blog post on her MySpace page in which she blogged about her body image issues.

"I used to pride myself on being strong minded and not being some stupid girl obsessed with the way I look," she wrote. "I felt like it didn't matter if I was a bit chubby cause I'm not a model, I'm a singer. I'm afraid I am not strong and have fallen victim to the evil machine. I write to you in a sea of tears from my hotel bed in Seattle, I have spent the past hour researching gastric bypass surgery, and laser lipo suction."

Mel B is getting hypnosis!

Mel B has revealed she is getting hypnosis to battle her nerves over her new stage show.

Mel is set to appear in Peepshow, her new Vegas act, but has said she's having hypnosis to help overcome her stage fright.

The former Spice Girl told Closer magazine: "I'm getting hypnosis. I'm seeing a guy called Anthony Cool, who performs a show at Vegas too. I'm doing this just in case I get any last-minute nerves - you know, in case I can't remember the lyrics or the moves. He's going to hypnotise me as soon as I get there."

Mel always has her husband Stephen Belafonte on hand to lend her support and handle the business side of things. She said: "With everything I do, I make sure I understand the contracts. In the old days in the Spice Girls, Victoria was the businesswoman. She explained it to us all. And now I have my husband who does all that and makes sure everything's sorted.

"I love him being involved in my work life. Why would I want a manager that I'd have to give 20 per cent of everything I earn to? I don't have to give Stephen anything - he gets me!"
