Hypnotherapy will CHARGE your life

Because it's good to let somebody else take charge from time to time.

Positive change will happen while you just sit back and relax

Boosts happiness by stimulating your body to produce serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphins. Producing these 'happy' chemicals will improve your life, focus your mind, and free you up to take on the world.


Hypnosis is a natural state, the dreaming state between sleep and awake when the mind is free, where it easily accepts positive suggestions. You will never loose control and will remain fully conscious throughout.

Client Review

 

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Alex on my thought patterns. Behaviours that stem from natural responses can slow us down in life, and Alex had just the right ways to fix that. He has been a great guide in making me focus more on building a better tomorrow by choosing to think positively and smartly. And the more positive you think, the more positive things you will attract in life, it's the law of attraction! I highly recommend Alex Crisp for having set all of this into motion for me!

The divided brain

Our 'primitive brain', the amygdala (the part that has existed before we became civilised) governs our basic emotions (fight or flight). This induces us to feel fear, anxiety, depression as self defence to our surroundings. Our emotional struggles are caused by this part of our brain which would have us running away from everything vaguely frightening if it wasn't for the balance created by the newer Intellectual part.


Our 'intellectual brain' the newer outer cortex, tries to make sense of it all through use of it's vast library of stored information. It can often struggle if it doesn't get in there early enough.  Hypnotherapy helps the intellectual brain deal with it's older, more emotional, cousin.

Solutions Focused Hypnotherapy

Solutions Focused Hypnotherapy combines psychotherapy with hypnosis. By focussing on what you want to achieve (the solution) rather than on 'the problem', Alex uses practical strategies and a sprinkling of magic, to help you make significant and positive changes to your life.

My Story

I am a Qualified Solutions Focused Hypnotherapist, registered in the UK, with the AfSFH . I have had clients all around the world; in the USA, Japan, Australia, Algeria, South Africa, as well as in the UK and France. I'm very happy to be able to help people make improvements to their lives. 

As a young man I visited a hypnotherapist in North London for help with a stammer which I struggled with at the time. I was sure my stammer would hold me back from whatever I wanted to achieve in my life. After 10 sessions it was changed, the stammer was all but gone.


My hypnotherapist was a unique sort of man who I admired greatly. His delivery was effective and powerful and being from Romania, his voice just gave added credence to the experience; very Dracule and perfectly mesmerising. He taught me techniques which I could use for myself at home, which I did.

Hypnotherapy continued to interest me, throughout my other career choices; in education, law, and writing. Specifically the science of the brain interested me and how much our emotional and intellectual lives can be changed by just having a basic understanding of how our brain works. Getting to grips with the science behind hypnotherapy legitimised the practice for me, stopped it being some sort of hocus pocus which unfortunately it has become for some.

Client Story

A lovely lady came into my clinic with back pain.  She’d tried all sorts of treatments including private consultations in Harley Street, MRI scans, Osteopathy, Physiotherapy etc etc.  Then someone suggested that it could be a psychological rather than a physical problem, so she came to me.

After six sessions of hypnotherapy the pain had reduced significantly, by up to 3/4.  We hadn’t actually talked about the pain directly, we’d simply worked to offload stress and anxiety of everyday life.  By reducing stress and teaching relaxation techniques we went on to almost completely rid her of the pain. 


Frequently a physical symptom is an alarm bell, ‘rung out’ by the subconscious to alert us to an emotional overload. We will often think of the physical symptom as being the problem. Insomnia is a good example of this where anxiety may cause sleeplessness and then that in turn causes increased anxiety. A negative cycle results which is often difficult to escape without some assistance.

Once the client gains an understanding of how the brain works they can start to take back control. In the Initial Consultation I explain how hypnosis works and also how the brain works in a way the client can understand. This explanation is based on the latest findings from the world of neuroscience.
