A client with O.C.D. treated with Hypnoanalysis

I simply feel much more confident now – in work and in my personal life. My self esteem has greatly increased – I feel like I matter, that I have a value. I walk taller. I no longer feel that I have no right to be here. I feel more physically attractive as a result and much more masculine. I feel powerful and in control.

I avoided relationships with the opposite sex to the point where I convinced myself that I was homosexual. Unbelievably, I now feel that it would be possible for me to have a relationship with a member of the opposite sex! For the first time in my life I feel sexually attractive.

I used to think and plan constantly. I would play out scenarios in my head, usually planning for when things went wrong – this led to the constant worry I experienced. This has virtually stopped. I feel a great deal lighter (of mind) and more spontaneous. I’m simply enjoying life more, now that I don’t have this constant conversation with myself. The O.C.D. has all but disappeared too. I can’t say that all of this has made me feel euphoric in any way, I just feel normal and content and that’s exactly what I wanted out of this. It has honestly been life changing.

Grainne after undergoing Hypnoanalysis

“I went to see Stephen Chan as I had a problem in my life that was becoming progressively worse and was significantly impacting on my day to day life. Over the course of the 6 week therapy I learned things about myself that I had never really known or acknowledged before and suddenly it all became clear and connected. I cannot believe that I waited until I was 37 to seek help for my problems as they have been affecting me for as long as I can remember. Thanks to Stephen and the therapy I am now free of my issues and feel totally happy and confident and know that I will now live my life to the full. I was used to people always seeing a super confident person from the outside but that was never matched by how I felt on the inside until now.

Thank you Stephen and I will not forget what you have done for me.

“Listen Ruthie, believe me right, you’re gonna be ok……” Stevie Chan April 2008

This is what I heard over the phone just a few days after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Now I’m sure that those of you reading this that have either been diagnosed with cancer or that have loved ones delivered the same terrifying news might be wondering what is extraordinary about the above quote. I’m guessing that you will have either received or delivered the same or similar well meaning sentiment and I did many times both before surgery and throughout the course of my subsequent chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments. But what Stevie said was totally different and had the most profound effect on me; whereas my dear friends and family desperately wanted it to be true, Stevie knew it to be true he knew that my mind could and would aid my return to full health – and guess what!!? ……..I am ok!! In fact I feel fitter and healthier now than I did before the diagnosis. The anaesthetist claimed that I was calmer and more relaxed than even he was, what’s more the speed of my post op recovery astounded the consultant and the whole nursing team let alone my friends and family! Chemotherapy and radiotherapy were a breeze – I’m NOT kidding! ….. during the course of these therapies I met some lovely people, I excercised more than I had done and enjoyed it too!, I paid more attention to my diet, I indulged myself whenever and with whatever took my fancy, I stopped worrying about things over which I had no contol and I feel so please and proud of what I’ve achieved. None of this was hard, not after I’d listened to Stevie.

Frank, Sexual Problem resolved using Hypnoanalysis

I would just like to say that when I went to Stephen I was a bit sceptical, as I had already been to hypnotist before for the same problem and hadn’t seen any improvement at all,

My ‘problem’ as I called it was premature Ejaculation and I had been suffering from it, well…forever basically. I was at my wits end as I thought I have tried everything I could but to no avail so was very near going to resign myself to the idea that this was just the way my life was going to be.

Then I read Stephen’s website and read about his Hypnoanalysis therapy and thought, what did I have to lose. So I rang, got an appointment and met up for my first appointment where I we met by the most welcoming person I think I have ever met. We quickly got down to work with Stephen explaining everything in a really easy to understand manner.

Once we got to the ‘root’ of my problem and all this bottled up emotion was released it we like a very large weight had been lifted off my shoulders………….

I am now very glad to say that not only has hypnoanalysis helped me get rid of my problem, it has also given me so much confidence and a whole new outlook on life in general for which I am very grateful.
I will never be able to thank you enough but…Thank you.

“Hypnotised and not a swinging watch in sight”

kathy_photoThink of being hypnotised and you immediately think of swinging pocket watches and deep trances. But the truth is more modern and can help with a range of emotional, nervous or psychological problems. ”

A visit to Stephen Chan’s Portadown clinic last week was just what the doctor ordered. I underwent some relaxation and Stress Management Hypnosis and it’s something that I will remember for a long time.

Stephen immediately puts you at ease and quickly dispels any myths and beliefs that hypnotherapy involves a swinging watch and state of trance.

There are no watches and no falling asleep. In fact you feel totally alert to what is going on and you can bring yourself to full consciousness at any time during the session. Stephen handed me a set of earphones and then I just sat back relaxed and listened to what he said. It’s hard to describe what being hypnotised feels like. The best way that I can describe it is a focused state of concentration – a bit like daydreaming, totally unconcerned about what is going on but deep in concentration!

Stephen urged me to relax, feel good about myself and start to imagine myself on a isolated beach complete with swaying palm trees, white sand and gentle lapped waves. I ha

to stop myself from sipping the pina colada sitting to my left and ogling the hunks on the beach.

What a life – and then I had to come back to work in the Leader!

My session with Stephen really did put me at ease and I felt completely relaxed.

Stephen can help people with many conditions, included lack of confidence, smoking, phobias, alcohol/drug abuse, panic attack, sexual problems, compulsions, insomnia, paranoia, weight control, social fears, blushing, public toilet shyness and depression.”
