Colin Jones - Bristol Hypnotherapist
Colin Jones, MNCH (Reg.), HPD
Colin Jones is a fully qualified hypnotherapist & counsellor with over 20 years experience of helping people be healthier, happier and better in everyway.
What is hypnosis and why come to me? Hypnosis is a natural state of mind where through a process of creative imagination exercises and suggestion you can find solutions to your problems.
I use techniques that are based on a transparent and common sense treatment methods that enable you to take responsibility and control so you can cope and even master old unwanted feelings, habits and attitudes.
You can achieve your potential and enhance confidence I am a qualified addictions counsellor and worked for 20 years in smoking cessation substance misuse in NHS and specialist centres in London and the South West. I have extensive training in changing old habits from London University and the Maudsley Hospital. Whether you are struggling with quitting smoking or feel stuck and vulnerable to lapse, I can help.
Outside of this specialist area, I work with a broad range of issues and concerns to help you get where you want to helping you achieve:
- Continual and quality sleep
Higher levels of energy and motivation
Greater self esteem
Freedom from phobias
Freedom from smoking and addictive habits
Healthy lifestyle choices
Memory and concentration skills
My life prior to training in the helping profession was acting and performance This serves you well today if you are looking to be more confident and relaxed. We can all suffer from nerves, be it at social situations, public speaking or performing engagements. I know how to help you be on top of your game for interviews, auditions, or to pass a driving test or academic exam. Relaxation, expectation and confidence is key when addressing these any other situations where perhaps phobias and fears can 'live rent free' like unwanted guests.
How I work as a hypnotherapist
- I trained with the Anglo - European College because it draws on proven techniques of cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy. Quite simply CBH draws on the best progressive methods that use CBT at its foundation, using evidenced based methods that are proven to work. I work collaboratively with you helping you achieve deep refreshing sleep rather than insomnia; stress relief and pain management; anxiety control, or for lifting the fog of depression. Or maybe you just need a boost when you need to be at your best. Or maybe you would like to treat yourself to a relaxing mind massage or mindfulness session and have that wonderful sense of just letting go and being in the present moment.
Please do call me for a free telephone consultation or if you need know anything else.
Thank you and best wishes.

Couldn't sleep it was driving me and everyone around me mad - A couple of sessions with Colin and practising mindfulness and relaxation I can send myself off to nod no problem. I feel so much better, younger and have more energy for family friends and work.
Can't express how great it feels to not be a slave to stinking tobacco. Wished I'd done it years back - oh well I'm a new and longer path of life - better late than never - I know that now. Thanks Colin, you were so supportive in moments and urges. Never going back - Just for today a!...
Smoking was my life - but I wanted to stop . With Colin's help he pushed me way over the finish line and now I look forwards to playing football with my grandson - Cheers Colin 'you're sick' as my grandson would say :)

Colin's approach to hypnosis is refreshingly simple & very effective. No magic or mysticism here; Although the results are rather miraculous and I now am able to take charge of my anxiety and even enjoy social situations. Thank you C x
After the accident that happened at work, I never thought I could return to work. But thanks to practising the techniques I'd learnt in the session my employer was really impressed with how I got back into being productive again so quickly. In fact the things I learnt have helped me in other situations- really useful and effective.
I was spending 5k a year at least on dirty things that had me in their grip. Colin's amazing skills and lifelong experience just got the better me back again. Now I feel so grateful for that and know what to do to stay on track - brilliant !!
