Andrew David Jamison - County Down Hypnotherapist
Andrew David Jamison DSFH, HPD, Dip SW, MPA, BA
Hello! My name is Andrew and I'm a qualified Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist.
I previously trained as a mental health nurse which is when I began to learn about hypnotherapy and the positive effects it can have on the mind and body. This is a cutting edge therapy which has its roots in modern neuroscience.
In our sessions together, you will learn how the brain works and how conditions such as depression, anxiety, phobias and anger are created, this will be the first step we take to work towards where you want to be.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
This therapy works at your pace and does not focus on why the problem is there, it's about where you want to be. So many types of therapy look for reasons for the way we feel, looking for issues in the past. As I therapist, I know focusing on the negative can make people feel worse. Together, we will set goals and using hypnosis we work together in reaching them.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is helpful in Anxiety and Stress, Depression, Confidence and Self Esteem, Weight Management, Phobias, Insomnia and IBS. As a specialist in helping people with anxiety and stress, I run group sessions helping people to cope better with these conditions.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch. I know it can be very confusing to choose someone to help. My advice is to get in touch with the therapists you are drawn to and ask as many questions as possible - I am always happy to help answer and our initial consultation is free.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
“Anxiety, depression and panic attacks are very much connected in my view and appear to feed of one another. It is extremely difficult to break the cycle. It affects all aspects of your life both personal and work. My own experience had a cycle of personal problems making problems in work seem worse than they were, needed to break that cycle. Firstly seeking help from your GP helped to alleviate the initial problems which gave me clarity of thought and allowed me to focus on what to do to fix the situation that I was in. At the same time I came across hypnotherapy and Andrew. I had never done anything like that before and thought it may or may not help but it couldn’t make the situation any worse. It was the best experience I have had in such a long time. After the first session with Andrew I had a smile on my face and seemed to be walking taller. After 5-6 sessions my life seems to have changed so much. Work has improved, my personal life has improved, I have volunteered to help out with a charity and I have even started the long road of organizing a charity walk through my work. I think the hypnotherapy is amazing and I can’t thank Andrew enough for being there at the right time.” .Jeff. Bangor
“Andrews approach to Hypnotherapy was of great benefit to me at a time when I was finding it difficult to sleep at nights and overrun with anxiety. He helped me , through better relaxation and understanding to focus my thoughts more positively and rationally .” .Maurice. Antrim
“I had been to hypnotherapists before , who claimed to fix my anxiety and stress in one session. This did not work and after 3 sessions with Andrew, I am now sleeping better and coping so much better with life. Thank you!”. Aiden. Belfast.
“Andrew got me off the cigarettes in one session, Thanks I have saved a fortune..”. Peter.Belfast.
