Create positive changes in your beliefs or behaviour.
What is Hypnotherapy?
“Hypnotherapy is the induction of the state of hypnosis, for the beneficial purpose of helping the client change a habit, fear or behaviour which is causing problems in their life.”
Hypnosis is simply a deep state of relaxation during which suggestions can be made which create positive changes in your beliefs or behaviour.
Your subconscious mind controls all the involuntary functions of your body, including your habits and things that you do ‘automatically’ – this is fuelled by your emotions and imagination and directs the energy from within. The subconscious mind also stores memories of everything that has ever occurred to you.
“We possess within us a force of incalculable power, which if we direct it in a conscious and wise manner, gives us the mastery of ourselves and allows us not only to escape from physical and mental ills, but also to live in relative happiness.”

Customised Solutions For Every Client
In hypnosis, your conscious mind is deeply relaxed, allowing me to speak directly to your subconscious mind. This is receptive to new ideas, and open to the suggestions I will make which encourage more sensible, balanced or helpful beliefs and habits to form.
Hypnosis is not a substitute for medical treatment, but a very useful supplement to it. Your body and mind are linked, and this holistic technique allows the whole person to benefit.
The number of sessions required usually varies from person to person, however most people feel some benefit from hypnotherapy immediately. This benefit often increases and deepens with each further session.
I can use hypnosis to help you from anywhere in the world. Using online video calling, our remote sessions will be as effective as if we were in the same room.
I work in the UK timezone, but can be flexible with working hours, and will accommodate your schedule as much as I can.
Each session is designed to meet your individual needs, with a bespoke blend of hypnotherapy, NLP and other change techniques. We will discuss an appropriate course of action during your initial consultation.

Q. Can anyone be hypnotised?
A. The majority of people can be hypnotised, providing they are able to follow simple verbal instructions. Hypnotherapy will work best when you are ready and willing to make the specific change in your behaviour (e.g. give up smoking), as the subconscious suggestions will support and strengthen your own will power.
Q. Can I be made to say or do anything against my will whilst I am hypnotised?
A. Not at all. Clinical hypnosis is not the same as stage hypnosis; you are free to accept or reject any suggestions made.
Q. Will I be aware of what is happening or being said during the session?
A. Yes. You will feel deeply relaxed but will never lose contact with my voice.
Q. What happens if I don’t come out of trance or something happens to you before I am brought out?
A. You would simply come out of the trance naturally, as you will still be fully conscious but relaxed. No-one has every remained in trance indefinitely.
Q. Will I be able to drive after the session?
A. Yes. You will most likely be feeling very relaxed, however your actions and reactions will be functioning even more efficiently than usual.
Q. When I am in hypnosis am I unconscious?
A. No, you are in a state half-way between being asleep and awake. Most people liken it to being half asleep, and feeling the most relaxed they’ve ever felt.
Q. Does hypnotherapy work online as effectively as in person?
A. Absolutely. As long as you can hear my voice, you can reach a state of hypnosis and receive the benefits of the hypnotherapy. In fact, most clients say they feel more relaxed in the comfort of their own home than in a hypnotherapist’s office, and this helps speed up their relaxation into hypnosis.
What People Are Saying
“When I decided to start looking for a hypnotherapist to help me give up smoking, Hazel Hardie was highly recommended . We had very pleasant meeting where she explained how it all works, her calm nature and presence reassured me that hypnotherapy is definitely something I wanted to try. I tried before many times to give up smoking but it never seemed to work. On the day of the session I was very nervous and in doubt, but I am pleased to say I truly enjoyed the meditation process. I can swear I was able to feel “lavender and vanilla ” smell at the time (my favourite -and she does not know that).
I was smoker for almost 18 years and I am happy to say it has been 2 weeks since i have smoked. She is born for this, her soothing voice is remarkable. I would highly recommend her to all who haven’t found a way to stop smoking yet.“
“In an supportive and caring manner, Hazel provided me with a set of practical tools which helped me break down the barriers that were holding me back. In doing so, she has helped me take my business and personal life to the next level. For this I will be forever grateful.”
“Amazing!! I highly highly recommend you do this. Hazel is fabulous and helped me to hear a voice that has been there for as long as I remember and it is NOT me and it does not serve me and it undermines my dreams. Once I could really hear it, I became conscious of it, could name it and decide what I really believe. I do not believe that voice anymore and I cannot tell you how liberating it is !!! Thank you Hazel! I am extremely grateful!!! Thank you!! If you can feel something holding you back I highly recommend booking a call. If you are open, amazing things are possible!!!”
