Tracie McCann ‘Leader’ Advertising Manager.

Tracie turns to hypnosis in a bid to beat the weed.

tracie_photoLeader advertising manager Tracie McCann has tried almost everything to kick her 40 a day habit into touch.

However up until last week Tracie was still locked in her addiction with no sign of a way out.

That’s when she made the decision to put hypnotherapist Stephen Chan’s claim, that he can get smokers to stop smoking in just one hour, to the test.

Stephen is an analytical and clinical hypnotherapist and has offices in Portadown and Newry. He claims that over 95% of the hundreds of smokers he has helped quit gave up easily and permanently after just one session. And Tracie is now a firm believer in the power of hypnosis after a very positive session with Stephen.

“I was smoking 40 cigarettes per day for the past 17 years and was really struggling to give up,” said Tracie. “I’d tried just about everything without success and jumped at the chance to go and see Stephen.”

“He explained to me that smoking wasn’t about an addiction to nicotine but rather it was all in my mind, Stephen said that my beliefs are my reality and if think in a certain way I can change.”

“The hypnosis past lasted about 15 minutes and was completely different to what I imagined.”

“I had prepared myself for some Paul McKenna type antics, however it wasn’t like that as I was to made to wear headphones and listen to a tape of subliminal messages.” “Stephen told me to relax and feel myself becoming more and more relaxed throughout my body.” “While I was in this state Stephen put very positive suggestions into my head and told me I was a non-smoker.”

So far the treatment seems to be working with Tracie still off cigarettes.
“Since my session with Stephen I haven’t thought about smoking which is amazing as before I constantly thought about having a cigarette.” She said.

“I would certainly recommend Stephen and after being very sceptical about the whole process I am now a firm believer.”

Fear of Public Speaking successfully helped with The Thrive Programme™

I went to Stephen to help with what I thought was a phobia of public speaking. As I spent more time with Stephen and reading Rob Kelly’s book I was made to realise it was all down to my badly managed thinking, this was the first step in my road to recovery.

As my time with Stephen passed my confidence began to grow and I realised what was important in life and what wasn’t. The 6 weeks have changed my life in many aspects, I am starting law in September which i am aware involves presentations which now don’t bother me, my “fear” of public speaking has diminished.

Thank you Stephen for all your help and giving me lifelong knowledge and skills when dealing with problems and stress 🙂

 

C, Fear of sick, Emetophobia and other problems successfully helped with The Thrive Programme™

I can’t thank Stephen enough. When i came to see him i was at my wits end. I got diagnosed with post-natal depression and got put on anti-depressants after having my daughter, I was so low and very angry, i hated myself and was convinced i was the worst mummy ever! My biggest problem though was that i was very anxious and had the biggest fear of being sick! The thought of being sick or even feeling sick terrified me!

I spent 6wks completing the Thrive programme with Stephen and it was the best thing I’ve ever done! Stephen put me right at ease and explained why i was feeling the way i was feeling which was very reassuring! We worked together changing my thinking patterns and now i feel like a whole new person. I’m now making plans for me and my daughter’s future as a family as i now feel strong enough to take things on. I’m planning a career and looking at places for us to live.

The biggest change I’ve noticed is my fear of being sick has literally vanished. That was the main thing holding me back and if my daughter was sick or i even felt sick i freaked out, now I’m super mummy 🙂

I honestly can’t thank Stephen enough as he has changed my life and i am now looking forward to the future.

Geraldine after undergoing Childbirth Hypnosis

geraldine100baby“I visited Stephen a couple of weeks after I found out I was expecting my first child. I had a phobia of doctors all my life and I knew that in order to enjoy my pregnancy I had to overcome the fear of ‘white coats’.

After one session I had overcome my phobia. During this session Stephen advised me of hypnosis he did around the pain of child birth and how hypnosis could make the experience more enjoyable and less painful. I have got to say I did not think this was possible but as with any first time mum I would have taken or done anything to alleviate my worries about childbirth.

So eight weeks before my due date I had three sessions with Stephen and was given cd’s to listen to during labour, I was still sceptical up until I went into hospital but I can say now my daughter was born in April and I had only four hours of labour and my only form of pain relief was gas and air. I had a wonderful stress free labour and my daughter was and continues to be a very relaxed and happy baby. If I am lucky enough to have a second child I will use hypnosis again.

Driving Test Nerves helped with Clinical Hypnosis/Suggestion Therapy

“Stephen, just wanted to let you know that I passed my driving test last Saturday. The hypnotherapy really helped. I have to admit, I was a bit sceptical at the beginning but on the day I hardly had any nerves! I couldn’t have done it without your help!

Thanks S” (Belfast)
