Hi, my name is Elaine Hodgins and I am a qualified and Registered Hypnotherapist and also a qualified and Registered Nurse. I have been practicing for many years and have undertaken courses in Cognitive
Behavioural Therapy, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and Clinical Hypnosis.
Many years ago I trained as a State Registered Nurse, specialising in the care
of children. I have always been interested in the mind and how it works and so
Hypnosis seemed to be the natural progression in my career. It never ceases to
amaze me how, by changing my client's mind-set; they can achieve almost anything
they want to. I hope that I can help you too, achieve the results you need to
improve your well being, both physically and emotionally. If you have a problem
that is not mentioned below, please don't hesitate to contact me as I am sure
I will be able to help you.
Diets don't work! How many times have you gone a diet only to pile back on all
the weight you have lost? I know I have, many times! By changing your mind set,
you can achieve the results you desire very easily. My unique weight loss programme,
including Hypnotic Gastric Band Therapy, will help you shed the weight once and
for all and what's more important, you will keep it off and maintain your desired
Smoking kills. Smoking causes heart disease, many types of cancers and horrific
problems such as emphycaema and chronic lung disease. I can make stop smoking
easy for you.
Anxiety, Low Self Esteem and
Lack of Confidence:
During our lifetime we all suffer from low self esteem and lack of confidence,
however, when these problems begin to interfere with our well being on a daily
basis it is time to take action and nip it in the bud! Hypnosis and CBT will certainly
help you do just that and it WILL change your life.
We all want our children to be healthy, both physically and emotionally. Many
children's behavioural problems begin with a little fear, or phobia, which, if
left untreated can escalate into a serious problem. Bed wetting, stool holding,
head banging, tantrums, selective eating disorder (picky eating) and sleep disorders , nail biting, tics, thumb sucking, fears and phobias, can
all be treated relatively easily using a form of hypnosis and cognitive behavioural
therapy. Your child will have fun during the session and won't even realise he/she
is being treated! I treat many children with dyspraxia, asperger's, autism, dyslexia and many other developmental conditions
Neuro Developmental Delay:
Do you wonder why some children can sit still in class and others can't?
Have you ever read a school report that says "could try harder"?
Is your child ever easily distracted? If any of these strike a chord with you, then read on! Neuro Developmental Therapy can potentially answer some of these questions.
Neuro Developmental Therapy (NDT) is a non-invasive, drug free therapy that helps to identify and treat any developmental delays that are caused by the central nervous system not fully developing or integrating our reflexes. Some symptoms might include:
Anxieties, anger, difficulties learning, balance, co-ordination, spatial awareness, sleeping problems, easily distracted, inability to sit still, difficulty making friends and social interaction, bedwetting, stool holding, OCD and many more!
School reports; do any of these comments sound familiar?
Disruptive - poor concentration and focus - could try harder - day dreamer - no concept of time - poor organisational skills.
What is a reflex and how will a treatment help?
A reflex is an automatic unconscious reaction to stimulus. We are all born with primitive reflexes some of which are tested as soon as we are born, such as Rooting, Sucking and Swallowing which are essential if a baby is to feed without complication.
All of the primitive reflexes are necessary for a babyís birth, survival and learning, however they should inhibit within the first 12 months after birth allowing more sophisticated neural pathways such as adult postural reflexes to fully develop. These more advanced reflexes form the foundations of unconscious, automatic balance control, posture and movement. If these changes donít occur, it may impact on elements of our physical, cognitive, behavioural, emotional and social development.
Through Neuro Developmental Therapy we aim to understand whether any of the reflexes have failed to develop correctly, and if so, establish a treatment programme to correct it.
What can I expect from a consultation ?
Prior to your initial consultation you will be asked to complete a questionnaire for the child being evaluated. At your first consultation we will review your questionnaire and complete a number of simple yet effective tests that include evaluating the child's balance and coordination. This allows a tailored programme to be developed to start your child on his recovery.
What does the programme consist of?
Every programme is individually developed, and will consist of a movement and balance exercise programme. You will be required to follow the programme at home every day, which will take a maximum of ten minutes a day. The programme is reviewed and adapted approximately every 8 weeks. Your child will be expected to attend the review sessions every 8 weeks for a min of 10 months. ( a total of six sessions) The improvement in the child's balance, co - ordination, spatial awareness and general behaviour is amazing! If you would like more information on Neuro development delay therapy do call me to discuss or e mail me for further info.
Fertility, Hypno Birthing, and
Post Pregnancy Weight Loss
Pregnancy is one of the most exciting moments we go through
and so it's really important that we start off with a great experience. Hypnosis
and NLP, together with some fantastic relaxation techniques will help you through
your pregnancy and the birth. I run a Hypnobirthing Programme to suit your requirements, just call me for more info.
Wedding Nerves and
In a survey, establishing what people most feared in life, it was discovered that
more people were frightened of public speaking than dying! I'm sure we have all
been scared of speaking in public or being in the limelight and the centre of
attention. I know I have! Changing our thoughts and the way we talk to ourselves
can make a huge difference. In just a few sessions you feel more confident, learn
how to breathe correctly whilst delivering your speech/presentation, and will
actually enjoy the experience. On your wedding day, you want to be relaxed and
confident, and not be in a panic or worried about anything. Hypnosis and NLP will
do just that!
Depression, Alcoholism and
Whether you are an alcoholic, drug addict or the relative of one, I can help you
get through the recovery process. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is the treatment
of choice and is excellent at helping the patient understand why he/she uses alcohol

and the other at: Park House, 17 Headley Rd, Woodley Berks RG54JB
