Joseph McAnelly of Hypnotherapy Newcastle in Tyne and Wear, has spent most of his working life dedicated to assisting people in one form or another.

Around 40 years ago he discovered hypnotherapy. At first, perhaps like you, he was very sceptical of anything that could be achieved by using hypnosis. Nevertheless, he started to use it and achieved profound changes in his own life. He chose from that moment, to study and practice how to use hypnotherapy to help others achieve similar goals.

Hypnotherapy Newcastle was then born and for the last 39 years, Joe has successfully worked in hypnosis and NLP with people. Helping them change, alter, or come to terms with their feelings reactions and habits. All through the power of hypnotherapy at his Tyne and Wear hypnotherapy practice.

Clinical Hypnotherapist Joe can help with many problems which he can help you with as a hypnotherapist, such as anger management, anxiety, confidence, depression, feeling low, phobias, public speaking, smoking, stress, weight loss, weight management, panic attacks, eating disorders, sleep disorders, low selfesteem, drug and alcohol abuse, flying and so much more. All of these issues can be addressed through clinical hypnotherapy.

How can we help you at Hypnotherapy Newcastle

stress

Pace of life and the demands made on us, can make us feel burnt out, lethargic and befuddled. Sometimes we can’t cope with the complexities of decisions that have to be made. If you feel some of these symptoms you may think that you are weak and failing as a human being. Your are not alone, help is at hand in the form of hypnosis.

smoking

If you want to stop smoking, a hypnotherapist can help. We'll change your state of awareness from an active state to a passive state, and in that passive state rearrange some of the programmable aspects of your brain. Developing a new set of behaviours involving the avoidance of tobacco or any other substance for that matter. Stop smoking hypnosis can really help you kick the habit.

weight loss

Hypnotherapy can help you to change your subconscious beliefs and make a permanent change to how you eat and exercise. Working with hypnosis can change these deeply held beliefs, replacing them with positive beliefs that will support your efforts to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Enhancing not only your body but your mental health.

feeling low

Our approach to hypnotherapy is to combine it with the best elements of other methodologies. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming and Mindfulness, all combine to enhance your chances of success. Using hypnosis and gaining control over your thoughts you can make extraordinary changes.

People have different ideas regarding hypnosis. The word itself was coined by William Braid who took the word from the Greek ‘Hypnos’ (God of Sleep).

People therefore associate hypnosis with being asleep and unable to hear what is being suggested however, the strange paradox is that you can hear things when you are asleep, e.g. alarm clocks or someone talking in a loud voice etc.

Hypnosis however, is not a state of sleep, unconsciousness or unawareness in any form. Furthermore, people are usually aware of everything that is said by the hypnotherapist / hypnotist unless they are given a suggestion to the contrary. The use of hypnosis as a healing process can be traced back the Egyptians.

Because people have watched the illusion of the stage hypnotist they often accept the myth that you can make anyone do anything through hypnosis.

Hypnosis, however, requires co-operation. If someone is resolute that they are not going to co-operate with the operator, then it is unlikely that the operator will be able to influence the subject.

With co-operation, however, a great deal can be accomplished.

Improving skills, eliminating adverse reactions and improving confidence are but a few of the many things possible.

However, you cannot make individuals produce information that has not already been stored in their memory.

You can make a living by using hypnosis to entertain or as a tool to assist others to make changes in their abilities to manage feelings, reactions or habits.

It is unlikely however, that you will be able to get people to part with their money without providing some value in return.

It should also be noted that because of the privileged position the hypnotherapist holds in relation to the subject, there are fairly strict ethical rules that apply, as to how the therapist uses that relationship with the subject.

The use of hypnosis is certainly not a licence to print money, nor is it a means to unlimited power.

The relationship between the operator and the subject has to be negotiated and is based on trust. It is a relationship that is entered into for an agreed purpose and for the sole benefit of the subject.

We specialise in hypnotherapy in Newcastle focussing on weight loss hypnosis, relationship issues, self esteem, gambling addictions, sex addictions and many more.

Hypnosis is a partly negotiated arrangement between the operator and the subject. Whist people may be willing to do extraordinary things it is not possible to make them do things against their deep-seated beliefs or morals.

However, as with drugs and alcohol, hypnosis is often used as a scapegoat to justify peoples’ behaviour.

So what is possible using hypnosis?

1 – Entertaining people, which can be fun and can be observed in stage hypnosis.

2 – Helping people to overcome their fears and manage their feelings, reactions and habits more effectively.

3 – Helping yourself to manage your own internal system.

In example number 1, the hypnotist entertains people in a stage show and this is probably the most commonly observed use of hypnosis at work. Often people think that the whole act is bogus and that the subjects are in the paid employ of the hypnotist. This is usually untrue; however, the audience is unaware of the mass testing that takes place prior to the selection of the subjects.

In example number 2, most people have not had first hand experience of hypnosis and those who have, are unlikely to discuss the matter openly with their friends

In the third example, people may be aware of some aspects through books that they have read or through documentaries seen on television.

We’ve helped numerous clients through the use of a hypnotherapy session focussed on hypnosis and NLP to help with issues including:

low selfesteem – chronic fatigue – pain management – mental health – smoking cessation – weight management – eating disorders – panic attacks

Why you may want to use hypnosis

Hypnosis could also be described as a trance. Trance can be seen as a picture show, which overrides emotion and leads the subject into a state of running their internal system according to the information coming through their senses.

We all have maps, but all of our maps are different. That is the uniqueness of being a human being.

Hypnosis is like magic. However, there is no such thing as magic, there is the magician and there is perception. Therefore, in order to understand other peoples’ maps and be able to form a common ground of acceptable feelings reactions and habits to things around us, it is necessary to bring about a change through some other vehicle. Hypnosis can help us make such changes.

The brain

The brain has two parts, a left hemisphere and a right hemisphere. These parts are connected to each other in many complex ways and the main connecting area is the corpus callosum.

It has been recognised over the years that the two hemispheres have different functions and in addition, are geared up in such a way that one hemisphere cannot directly interfere with the workings of the other. This is fine, until the logical hemisphere wants to make a change. In order to do this, we need to get round the problems of the defence mechanisms and a useful tool in this regard is hypnosis.

Hypnosis can be divided into two categories
Stage hypnosis and Clinical hypnosis

stage hypnosis

Used to entertain, linked with magic, secrets never revealed, most people have observed, usually thought of as sleep.

Clinical hypnosis

Never used to entertain, linked with insight, always practiced to educate, not experienced by many, usually thought of as strange.

All Hypnosis is Self hypnosis

It is held by many that all hypnosis is self hypnosis in that the person who is the subject allows information to pass into their brain to make the necessary transitions to alter their state from an active state, to a passive state.

Others maintain that there is no such thing as hypnosis but only social conformity. By this they mean that people do what is expected of them and that this has nothing to do with their conforming to outside instructions but merely conforming to compliance of rules inside their head.

Whichever is the case, the results can be quite spectacular and I would suggest that the difference between these two statements be left to academics to debate.

To Help Understand Why We Use Hypnosis in Therapy think of the Brain as Having Two Parts

The brain has two parts, which can be termed as the right hemisphere and the left hemisphere. The right hemisphere usually concerns itself with feelings, creativity, artistic and automatic working, whereas, the left hemisphere deals with reasoning, logical thought and calculating processes.

In normal circumstances, one hemisphere, whilst relating to and interacting with the other is separate in its function and there are good reasons why this is so.

The right hemisphere deals with things automatically and can deal with things in a multi-functional way, whereas the left hemisphere tends to deal with things in a chronological way and is sequential in its function.

Hypnosis is a tool to bridge the gap between two parts of the brain

Hypnosis does nothing other than facilitate communication with the automatic part of the brain.

Hypnosis is a tool just like a scalpel is a tool. However, you wouldn’t allow just anyone to use a scalpel on you without good reason and I’m sure that if there were a reason you would want a skilled surgeon to be using the scalpel and not someone who had some training in surgery. Therefore, when it comes to hypnotherapy you might like to think about the skill of the person you are choosing to help you.

Hypnosis the Essential Ingredients

According to the second school of hypnosis in Nancy, France, there are three essential ingredients for hypnotic trance which we can explore during hypnotherapy in Newcastle:

1. Fixation of attention.

2. Transmission of ideas in a relaxed manner.

3. Acceptance of ideas by the subject.

Can anyone be hypnotised?

If you took a random sample of ten people, the breakdown would probably be as follows:

One of the ten would be an excellent subject and respond very well.

One of the ten would be very paranoid and you would not be able to work with such a person.

Eight of the ten would be your average subjects, responding well after a little instruction.

Self Hypnosis

What you need in your environment to make transitions from an active state to a passive state.

– A place where you are not going be disturbed.

– Something comfortable to relax on – a bed or a high backed chair would be adequate.

– A warm environment – because as you relax, the body temperature falls.

– Always set a time limit by using an alarm clock or have someone rouse you after a set time.

To discover the underlying values and beliefs that cause the issues to be unresolved and change them. A useful way of thinking about the stored information in the brain is to liken the collection of information to making a map.

Human beings filter information from the world around them through their sensory channels (Seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching etc.. ) and store information in the brains. The information that they have chosen to store forms a map of the territory.

However, the map is not the territory – it cannot be so.

In formulating a map, you have to decide what information to include and what to exclude. In order to draw the map you have to distort the information – scale it down. Furthermore, there will be other pieces of information, which you will just generalise, as it is not relevant to the purpose of your map.

As the map is only a representation of the territory, it cannot be a totally accurate reflection as it contains deletions, distortions and generalisations. Communication with other human beings can therefore be difficult, as we all operate with our own unique maps. We don’t always perceive the territory in the same way.

In therapy the therapist seeks to enrich the client’s map in order to provide more choices or help the client alter their map to provide information to help them navigate ways forward. The concept of the map making is used in Neuro Linguistic Programming.

Some observers noticed that certain people, in their field were excellent in being able to communicate with others and decided to study them.

They called their studies Neuro-linguistic Programming.

The words can be broken down as follows:

Neuro- nervous system through which experience is received and processed through the five centres.

Linguistic – language and non-verbal communication systems
through which neural representations are coded, ordered, and given
meaning .

Programming – the ability to organise our communication and neurological systems to achieve specific desired goals and results.

As an NLP practitioner specialising in hypnotherapy in Newcastle, North East, I can explain NLP in detail.

N NLP is an attitude… characterised by the sense of curiosity and adventure and a desire to learn the skills to be able to find out what kinds of communication influences somebody and the kinds of things worth knowing… to look at life as a rare and unprecedented opportunity to learn.

L stands for the linguistic aspect and forms the methodology.. based on the overall operational presupposition that all behaviour has a structure… and that the structure can be modelled, learned, taught and changed. The way to know what will be useful and effective are the perceptual skills.

P stands for programmable and is the technology, which enables us, as practitioners to organise information and perceptions in ways that allow us to achieve results that were once inconceivable.

If so if you think that hypnotherapy would help you come along for a free appointment.
