About me

I'm a Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist working with people to increase their physical, mental and emotional well-being. I understand that deciding to seek help can be a big step, so I offer a very caring and supportive service.  My aim is to help you make progress from the very first session.

I offer a free telephone consultation, which lasts for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. This involves an informal chat about the issue you would like help with, and gives you the chance to ask any questions that you have about hypnotherapy.  We'll also make sure that hypnotherapy is a suitable treatment for your issue, and I'll explain more about how hypnotherapy can help.

Our first session together starts with a detailed consultation, which allows me to gain a more in-depth understanding of your issue.  I’ll also outline your treatment plan in detail, and we’ll discuss and agree it, focusing on what you would like the outcome of the sessions to be.  By the end, you’ll have a much better understanding of your issue and how you’ll be able to overcome it.  We’ll also begin working on your issue in the very first session, so that you can start to feel an improvement immediately.

I'll provide you with tailored, one-to-one support throughout our time working together, and ensure that you have practical, effective strategies for moving forward.  I use an evidence-based approach, selecting tools and methods based on the best clinical and research evidence available about what works in bringing about long-lasting change.

I take a holistic approach to working with clients’ issues, using hypnotherapy alongside a range of other evidence-based CBT techniques. This means there’s a lot of flexibility in the way I work, and I can tailor your hypnotherapy programme to your particular needs.

I offer hypnosis for a range of issues, including:

  • Worry, stress and general anxiety
  • Confidence-building
  • Shyness and social anxiety
  • Low self-esteem
  • Lack of assertiveness
  • Habit removal
  • Gaining and maintaining motivation
  • Chronic pain relief
  • Phobias

I specialise in hypnosis for relaxation and stress reduction, and providing people with the tools to deal with social anxiety, general anxiety, and stress. From session one, you’ll begin to learn methods and strategies that can help with your specific issue.

For me, the work that I do is all about helping people to see a way forward for themselves, and providing them with effective strategies and tools to transform their lives. I work closely with all of my clients to really understand what will be most effective in bringing about sustained change for them, and then I do everything I can to help them achieve the change they want.

A few testimonials:

"I have been taken by surprise by myself (!) and by Nigel's efficient practical approach which resulted in a quick and complete change of how I go about things now. I did not know that you can change deeply ingrained habits and improve confidence in just 6 sessions! Nigel's consistent support and coaching/hypnotherapy skills were invaluable. I can really recommend his services to anyone." (L, London)

"Nigel helped me overcome a habit I have had for as long as I remember. This happened so easily and quickly, I am astonished at how effective it was. Nigel makes you feel really comfortable and I’m sure that helped me to get straight to the heart of the problem." (S, East Midlands)

"I could not recommend Nigel Lloyd Mind and Body highly enough. All my life I have had issues with heights. As a small boy I couldn’t even go upstairs on a double-decker bus! As a man of certain age this was something I really needed to address. Nigel really got to understand my issues and worked through it with me in a very calming and relaxed way. His methods were very easy for me to practice and apply. I’m now on my way to Brazil to go up Rio’s highest point without any fears." (S, London)

"Nigel has a really great manner. He immediately puts you at ease and his technique allows you to open up without even realising you are doing so. Nigel is a very competent hypnotherapist who I am more than happy to recommend." (T, Portsmouth)
