What is Hypnosis?
Many people believe that hypnosis means they will lose control and be in the hypnotists power. This couldn’t be further from the truth. The hypnotic state is perfectly natural state that the brain goes through on a daily basis, and is simply a slower, more relaxed state. In this state the unconcious mind is open to suggestion, and great, positive change is possible.
Many people think they will lose control. You always remain in control, and can choose to “wake up” at any time. As the unconcious mind always protects us from harm, and that is the part of the brain that the hypnotist will be speaking with, the unconcious mind will not allow us to come to any harm, either physical, mental or spiritual.
What is the unconcious mind?
The unconcious mind is the largest part of the brain (approximately 90% of it), the part that controls everything we do without concious thought. For instance, how do we know precisely how to walk? How does our body know to breathe? How can we carry out any repetitive task without having to conciously think about it? Our unconcious mind protects us in every way it can.
What can I expect to feel when I’m hypnotised?
Everybody reacts differently to hypnosis. Some people will relax immediately, some people may take a while longer. Some people may find that they enter an almost catatonic state, whereas others can hold a perfectly normal conversation. Some find that time speeds up and the session is over in what seems like a minute, and for some the sessions seems to last for days. Essentially we are all different, and apart from being in control of the trance state you may react differently in different sessions.
What problems can be fixed with hypnotherapy?
How big is your imagination? Hypnotherapy is pretty much as endless as your imagination. Obviously there are physical limts, so if your age precludes it, it can’t be fixed with hypnotherapy. Apart from that prettymuch anything can be fixed. Phobias can be cured (believe me I know from first hand experience), we can change our behaviours (if we want to), increase confidence, decrease stress. You name it, it can be achieved.
"Our son Jack saw Duncan regarding his anxiety. He was struggling with his AS levels, even after studying the same level for 2 years. At the beginning of his 3rd year, as my daughter Katie sees Amanda who helps her with her ME/CFS symptoms, Amanda suggested I put Jack in Duncan's capable hands. We did this with an open mind. I wasn't with Jack, but from seeing Duncan, Jack turned round his results, stayed off anxiety drugs, and achieved high enough A level grades to obtain a place at university to study for a marine environmental science degree - where he is doing extremely well, and still not gone back to taking any prescribed drugs in order to sit his exams.
We as parents are extremely happy with this outcome and the fact that he doesn't have to rely on prescription drugs, just on focussing on what Duncan taught him to achieve in his life."
Thank you so much for your help with xxxxxx, I know you have worked hard, but it still feels like you were born with a gift. I think it was amazing that you were able to connect with an 11 year old boy in such a short space of time. You related to him on his level to help him find solutions that worked especially for him, you gave him someone to believe in, and you made it all fun! xxxxxx has had to face some very difficult situations this week and was feeling very low. Lost for help I asked him 'what do you think Duncan would say?' he immediately beamed a smile. You make me smile too, thank you!

I thought I’d just let you know how I’m getting on, and thank you again for your help with my spider phobia! When I got home after the treatment I was restless, I did not know what to do with my newly found calmness! Whereas imagining big spiders running behind the bed normally would have sent me into panic stage, I can now lie there calmly and see my “vision” through. I have since caught a spider in our spider catcher. A certain amount of doubt is still there, a tiny knot in my tummy and a somewhat watchful eye will remain on duty tonight, but what a difference! You're the best! My gratitude, thanks and love

I recently went through some changes both in my personal and professional lives. I discussed my issue with Duncan and he suggested trying NLP, which has been a revelation in my life. I have had several sessions with Duncan and each session has been an eye opener for me and I can say that I have learnt a lot from each session and it has helped me immensely with my personal and professional issues. I would recommend NLP with Duncan to anyone who has issues that may be buried in the past and needs these unlocking to move on. Thank you for your help.

A phobia of spiders had been putting an edge on the excitement I was feeling about going backpacking around Asia. I'd always been scared of spiders and I knew I was likely to come across some pretty big ones on my travels. We talked about it for one session and then I went off travelling not really thinking it would have helped much. But it did. Of course, I had some encounters with spiders and my reaction was unbelieveably calm. I'm really grateful to Duncan for this.
Working and training with Duncan was a delight as he is attentive, flexible and humorous in his approach to working with others. I would trust him to work with any type of client as his sense of responsibility is second to none. Thoroughly recommended!

I decided to go to Ananda Healing after going through some rough waters in my personal/work life. After a lengthy conversation with both Amanda and Duncan I decided that Hypnotherapy and Healing and Chakra Balancing sessions would be the right path for me to take. Hypnotherapy with Duncan has changed my life, how I think and how my mind reacts to situations that I have not been able to deal with in the past. I like the way that my sessions are planned and based on what I need as an individual. Thanks to Duncan and his understanding of what my core issues are, I have finally started to gain back my confidence and self-esteem. I am only two sessions in and I’m sure I have quite a few to go but Duncan has taken me on a journey that has changed my outlook on life and helped me get back to the happy place I was in 10 years ago, and for that I am eternally thankful

Neuro Linguistic Programming with Ananda. I wouldn't say I was addicted to chocolate, more obsessive about it. I have conquered smoking without too much effort but somehow giving up chocolate was beyond me. Duncan just talked to me and in a very subtle way helped me understand where the motivation came from. He gave me a technique to help when I felt I had to have my chocolate "fix". From that one session I have not felt the need and I no longer even enjoy eating chocolate and actually I don't miss it. Brilliant.
