Northampton has a new Hypnotherapy Practice in the shape of Graham Old and Hypnosis Northampton.

Based at the Abington Health Complex, Graham describes his hypnotherapy as “Compassionate, Contemporary and Client-centered.” He has trained with some of the best hypnotists and hypnotherapists in the world and says that he is looking forward to helping people discover that the changes they want to make in their life can be just around the corner.

Hypnosis uses a completely natural state of mind, similar to daydreaming or what Athletes call “the zone”. In that frame of mind, it is said that the power of the human mind can be accessed to enable you to quit smoking, lose weight, conquer phobias, build self esteem and increase motivation.

Graham Old calls his style of hypnotherapy “Brief Hypnosis”, saying that it is focused on helping people look and move forward, rather than delve into their past.

“I believe that it is more helpful to focus on where you want to go and the things you want to achieve, rather than dig-up the past or focus solely on the problems you’re facing. What’s the benefit in simply repeating what isn’t working for you, when you could just as easily look at the changes you want to make and how to begin working them out.

“I would much rather help people focus on their ‘preferred future’, than continually drag-up past mistakes, failures or traumas. When necessary, we can use hypnotherapy to help someone explore the past from a safe and comfortable distance, but we always do so to help them gain the momentum and resources to move forward.”

Graham practices from the Abington Clinic, which is part of the prestigious Abington Health Complex. From there, he sees clients from Northampton, Bedford, Buckinghamshire, Corby, Daventry, Earls Barton, Higham Ferrers, Kettering, Milton Keynes, Peterborough, Rugby, Rushden, Wellingborough and all over Northamptonshire.

The Abington Clinic was opened by Sharon Davies, Olympic Medallist, in 1996. The Health Complex site incorporates the Abington Medical Centre, Pharmacy, Dental Clinic and Optician. There is ample, secure and free on site car parking and they have excellent disabled access to the modern purpose-built facility.
