What is hypnotherapy?

The term “hypnosis” comes from the greek word “hynos” meaning “sleep”

Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that taps into the unconscious mind and uses the power of positive suggestion to bring about subconscious change to our thoughts, feelings and behaviour.



Inner Work, For Outer Change

Hypnosis facts:

hypnosis is a very natural state of mind and is safe
in over 200 years, no one has ever been hurt by hypnosis
hypnosis of this kind is not mind control
during hypnosis, you are always in control
you can hear as you normal would during hypnosis
you cannot get stuck in hypnosis
the worst thing to happen to you is that you could fall asleep
hypnosis is focused consciousness
sleep is a state of unconsciousness

All you need to do is focus and listen to what I will be saying and you follow my instructions as I say it.

How does hypnotherapy work?

You’re probably wondering how it works. It’s practically voodoo, right?
…Wrong. Hypnotherapy helps you to relax and directly access your subconscious. This is the part of the brain responsible for memory, bodily functions, creativity, and pretty much everything else. Normally you can’t access it, but with hypnotherapy you open a door into your subconscious. This allows you to feed commands to it, for example to stop smoking, and your subconscious will get to work.

And for those who want a more technical answer:

​It is suggested it works by altering our state of consciousnesses in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side of the brain is made more alert.

What can hypnotherapy do for me

Literally anything and all you have to do is be 100% sure you want to make that change. Hypnotherapy can be used for anything you put your mind to, simply because you put your mind to it. It sounds simple… It is.

My Hypnotherapy sessions can help you with
a wealth of things, including:

 Weight loss
 Weight gain
 Quit smoking/ Smoking Cessation
 Deal with past traumas

All of my therapy sessions are designed so that you’re comfortable, safe and primed to become a better version of yourself.

I've lost over 6lb in 3 weeks

Here’s a timeline of my posts following my first session with Naomi.

12/10/15 – Absolutely amazing medium reading with Naomi today, blew my mind!! And then I had a session of hypnotherapy, and I felt different straight away, completely amazing!

15/10/15 –I can’t get over how well the hypnotherapy I had has worked. Someone bought me a great big piece of cake yesterday and no part of me wanted it and having chocolate in the house isn’t even a problem #mindblown

19/10/15 – A week now and absolutely no desire to eat bad stuff! Even in the face of heartbreak, I don’t want to eat the huge box of Thorntons in my cupboard!

24/10/15 – I’ve lost over 6lb in less than 3 weeks!

Had hypnotherapy by Naomi 7 months ago. Was struggling with low self-esteem and high levels of anxiety. Since one treatment I haven’t needed my anxiety medication, and have returned to a career I wanted after not being able to work since 2009.

Results have been wonderful!

It has been 2 weeks since I met with Naomi to have hypnotherapy, and the results have been wonderful! I went as I felt I wanted help to lose weight, and Naomi did lots of prep work so understood my triggers, my goals and my motivators.

The biggest change hasn’t been reaching my ideal my weight overnight – it is so much better! Naomi has released me from the anxieties I felt with food, with the “good day / bad day” mentality and the joy of not having a constant niggle that “I want to eat” and the joy now in eating what I enjoy, to support my body and not feed my emotions 

On our 1st session, Naomi was professional, yet warm, welcoming and instantly made me feel relaxed & eager to start a new journey. During the past 2 weeks, Naomi has been a wonderful source of encouragement, advice and a smile, on the phone, email or messages, Naomi has offered me as much or as little support as I choose, which has been great.

I shall be returning soon for more hypnotherapy and am excited to continue my journey.

I practically skipped out of her house

I recently did the vision board workshop and I can definitely recommend it!
Also had a hypnotherapy session with Naomi today and I feel fantastic, I practically skipped out of her house and felt ready for whatever was thrown at me!
I’m feeling very positive about my future and looking forward to seeing Naomi again.

Fantastic Results

fantastic a job

Naomi I feel privileged to have been your first client and how fantastic a job you have done! Very professional and exactly like Naomi has said I was completely aware of everything that was happening and being said. I chose to have Hypnosis for weight loss (with a little bit of positivity and self-esteem thrown in too) and straight away I felt the difference. I used to look in the mirror and hate what I saw but this morning I actually managed a smile at my own reflection and have a positive thought about the way I looked. Already today I have been able to easily say no to all my foods I used to run to for comfort each day. In one day there has been a massive change for me and can’t wait to reach my October 4th target!


The pounds are coming off!

Just under two months and the difference is rather noticeable. The pounds are coming off! But it’s the inches which have made the difference. I believe overall the experience has helped greatly; I still haven’t had a chocolate craving yet!! Very pleased with the outcome so far and looking forward to the two-month catch-up.

I had a reading done on Thursday I must say it was a bit emotional. It was great to have positive thoughts coming through which is helping me stay positive with my weight loss. Naomi also took some photos of me to see the difference after only two months…..All I can say is wow I myself couldn’t see where I was losing it from but you can now. Will hopefully post them on here soon. Very happy with the results so far. Thank you Naomi,

Yes, I’ve cried but wow it was worth it

This has been an emotional day so bare with me.  Went to the special Spiritual Cabin today to have Hypnotherapy from Naomi Sheppard. I’ve gone through so much in the past and to be honest, it’s really affecting the present. She was so lovely and put me to ease straight away. While under Hypnosis I felt relaxed and in total control. I’m not gonna lie as tonight I’ve been really emotional, crying in fact but I’m feeling that this is a release that needed to come our years ago. It’s thanks to Naomi that I’m now able to release my past and move on. I went in feeling low and worthless and came out feeling that there is home and that being happy and confident as possible. Yes, I’ve cried but wow it was worth it. Thank you so much to the very gifted Naomi Sheppard.

I am amazed with the shift in my mind

I recently received some hypnosis from Naomi and am amazed with the shift in my mind.

My last session with Naomi

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to stop by to update you after my last session with Naomi. After my first session to help with weight loss, I lost almost a stone and ignoring Christmas in-between, I am still losing weight! I decided to have another session to help me continue losing weight and also help with a problem I have with procrastination. Since leaving work and becoming self-employed at the end of August 2015, I was finding myself putting off a lot of things I needed to do with regards to work and increasing my income.

There is so much I want to learn but for some reason, I just wasn’t doing it! This is alien to me as I’m usually super organised and a prolific list maker! I work online so have NO deadlines to meet – except self-imposed ones – and nobody to report to, so motivating myself is crucial. Anyway, I had my session last week and have to report a marked shift in my mindset! I’m just getting on and doing stuff, making plans, organising me learning along with my workload and still have loads of time to pursue everything else. I feel so much happier in myself. This combined with still losing weight is making such a difference and I feel like I’m finally achieving everything I want to. Thanks, Naomi!

I just have to share

I’m so excited and happy – just have to share. I had my hypnotherapy session via face time on fb messenger as I live in Australia, two weeks ago today and since then I’ve lost 7 Kilos (15.4lbs) in weight and a total of 25sm from my body measurements – with an average loss of 3cm from my waist, bust, each leg ect.

But even more importantly I feel great, I have more energy, I am happier in myself and confident I can keep going. I love that it is so easy! Usually, I struggle in my head about what foods I should or shouldn’t have but this time I’m just not interested in the foods I know my body doesn’t like.
