Ulster Hypnotherapy Clinic

Welcome to the Ulster Hypnotherapy Clinics – Hypnosis – Hypnotherapy and The Thrive Programme® in Belfast and Portadown – Northern Ireland.

Hypnotherapy covering Belfast, Portadown, Ulster, Lisburn, Newry, Armagh, Antrim, Lurgan, Dungannon and Dundalk.


Watch and listen to how I helped John to beat 10 yrs of depression within a few weeks! And there are even more video evidenced results at the bottom of this page and on the testimonials page. 

With over a decade of experience award winning consultant Stephen Chan from both his Malone Road, Belfast and Gilford Road, Portadown clinics has successfully helped transform the lives of thousands of people – to take back the control and the power to live their lives – their way!

Here is how we do it…

By using a no nonsense, straight talking, yet supportive results focused scientifically researched approach which has been proven to be more effective than the more traditional types of hypnosis, C.B.T., counselling or other treatments that you may have already tried, and received little or no lasting relief in return – which explains why you are still seeking help!

The huge difference being, is that together we will sort out once and for all the ‘source’ of your problems/symptoms. This ‘source’ is what’s undermining your own personal sense of power and control over your life. Once your personal sense of power and control is undermined, your mind and body will naturally react negatively and go into flight, fight or freeze, which then results in emotional and physical symptoms such as;

  • Phobias
  • Anxiety
  • I.B.S. (irritable bowel syndrome)
  • Panic attacks.
  • Weight control problems
  • Addictions
  • Emetophobia (fear of being sick/vomit)
  • Sexual problems (erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, vaginismus etc.)
  • Emotional problems
  • Anorexia and bulimia
  • And many more…

Or drives you to do something in an attempt to comfort or make yourself feel better, such as;

  • Alcohol and drug dependency
  • Over eating
  • O.C.D.
  • Pornography
  • Gambling
  • Fetishes
  • Shopping
  • Cleaning
  • And many more…

Take phobias for example, like most people you are likely to believe in the outdated theory that in order to have a phobia about, say dogs or flying, then one must have had a bad experience with either dogs or flying, which then created the phobia.

But, in my experience, phobias are always connected to the very uncomfortable feelings of feeling out of control. It’s really the fear of feeling out of control that’s the actual ‘driving force’ behind a phobia. In other words, the less control you feel you have in any given situation, the more anxiety and fear you will feel, all of which has nothing directly to do with dogs, or flying, or whatever – it’s to do with issues of control – the avoidance of feeling out of control!

For example, take the fear of flying – is it possible to feel any more out of control when you are sitting in a tin can’ 2000 ft up in the air? Can you now see how it isn’t so much a fear of disaster, but actually the fear of feeling out of control, which the brain has symbolically projected onto flying or any other situation the sufferer doesn’t feel they have control over (people with phobias generally have other ‘out of control’ type situations which they will also avoid). Now, you can see how it’s possible for people here in the North and South of Ireland to create a snake phobia without ever having met one, let alone had a bad experience with one, and despite there being no snakes in Ireland!

This is the main reason why most other therapies that are based on techniques or traditional hypnotherapy can only give you limited or no lasting relief from your problems / symptoms because they don’t address the ‘source’ of your problem. Yes, they may have made your last flight a little more bearable, but did they affect your overall day to day anxiety levels…NO!

In, fact you probably noticed that you got a little more anxious about something else because, here’s the bad news, your anxiety doesn’t only effect one area of your life.

For example…someone came to see me in my Malone Road clinic for help, who had previously received treatment (not from me) for a severe blushing problem. The treatment seemed to have helped somewhat but didn’t resolved it completely. Her presenting symptom was excessive sweating. When I asked her when this became a problem, she realised that it surfaced around the time her then presenting symptom of blushing lessened. This was (unbeknown to her) because her blushing was a just a symptom of her social anxiety. Therefore blushing was only the symptom, just one symptom of many related to any situation where she feels on the spot, such as; fear of public speaking, stuttering and stammering etc. She was only fully cured when together we sorted out her social anxiety!

Once we safely and comfortably resolve your symptoms, you will be feel at peace and in total control to get on with the business of living the life that you have always wanted.

If during your free consultation we both decide that your problems for whatever reason, may not respond well to Hypnotherapy, you will be introduced to the Thrive Programme® of which I am a licensed consultant. The Thrive Programme® is the research backed specialised psychological, mind training programme that’s producing predictable, measurable and lasting results.
