Welcome to Bobby Jon Hook Clinical Hypnotherapy Cirencester and Cheltenham

 

“I can highly recommend Bobby, since having hypnotherapy I feel so much happier and positive! Bobby is very friendly and I really enjoy the sessions. ”

 Lucy, Cirencester

Hello, my name is Bobby and I am a professional Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. I am the proud owner of the largest hypnotherapy practice in Cheltenham, The Regency Practice.

I trained at the accredited Clifton Practice in Bristol and I am registered with the relevant bodies including the AfSFH (Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy) and the NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy).

I practice hypnotherapy in Cirencester and Cheltenham . Please visit my location pages to find out more.

What to expect from your hypnotherapy session

A hypnotherapy session will only concentrate on talking about what’s been good about your week. During our sessions I will teach you how the brain works so that you can understand what cause’s the perceived problems in our lives, what makes us feel the way we do in these situations and what we need to do to overcome them. Week by week you will take little steps in order to reach your goal.

Hypnosis is extremely relaxing and is done with positive guided imagination. I do not perform stage hypnosis. My clients are always aware of what is happening and are able to react and respond at all times.

If you decide that solution focused hypnotherapy is right for you then we can book a consultation. I can explain the therapy and you can decide if its right for you. If you decide you want to go ahead we can book a hypnotherapy session.

The hypnotherapy session will begin with a positive chat about the week and I will ask the “miracle question”. This is designed to help you think of solutions to your problem.

 

What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a brain based therapy that applies the very best and latest advance in neuroscience. I use some of the best techniques from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), and Hypnosis to help clients overcome their issue within a relatively short period of time.

To help you understand the therapy I have explained below the three parts;

NLP is used to help study the client’s attitude and language. Effective communication is key. I have studied Neuro-linguistic programming in order to help communicate more effectively with my clients.

CBT is used to help you understand how you’re thinking and feelings are all interconnected. Negative thinking can have an impact and affect our lives. This can become a vicious circle. This is especially true with emotion eating. For instance, you may want to lose weight but the minute you feel sad because of your weight you tend to comfort eat. By doing this you may feel great in the short term but in the long term you will be disappointed in yourself and unfortunately, you won’t lose weight, which was the initial problem.

Hypnosis is used to relax the client, naturally reducing anxiety and allowing the rational part of the brain to create a solution.

I hadn't had any experience with hypnotherapy and like most, I was sceptical. From the moment I made the call to Bobby through to the end of our sessions he was very welcoming and professional without judgement. Each session with Bobby left me feeling more positive and confident which has now set me off on a life changing course. After just 7 sessions I am able to have a more positive outlook on life and situations, I have been able to tackle my fear of flying and whilst I don’t claim to be cured, I am able to control my anxiety far better than before. I couldn't be more satisfied and grateful for what Bobby has helped me achieve. I would highly recommend.

I came to Bobby as I had a boxing match fast approaching and was feeling very overwhelmed at the prospect of it!!! Bobby was very easy to talk to and he scheduled regular visits right up to the event itself. He tailored each session specifically and gave me techniques to take home and try. He made me feel focused and confident. It was overall a very positive experience. Thanks �

I'm over the moon with the results of hypnotherapy with Bobby, I'm amazed at the results as I was sceptical. I suffered with anxiety and depression which was effecting my everyday life. I had to change, I wanted to change! and I cannot thank Bobby enough for all his kindness. You are such a great guy and I will be recommending you to others. Thank you so much! PPPositives! 🙂 x

I can't recommend / thank Bobby enough! Life transforming is how I would sum up Bobby's hypnosis! It was recommended that I try Bobby because I have been suffering with severe depression to the point where simple tasks became impossible, foggy headaches were unbearable, sleeping every few hours became normal and to the point where I was beginning to think I would never feel like myself again. I have always been sceptical about hypnosis but it was the best decision I ever made! I know this is a long journey but I'm glad Iv made the first steps! I feel positive , my foggy headaches have gone and I finally feel like myself again after a very long time!! 🙂

I started going to Bobby the start of January, to say he has helped changed me into the person I wanted to be is an understatement! Bobby has been amazing with you and made me believe that I can be this person I've always wanted to be. Thank you so much Bobby for your help, I would recommend anyone to go and receive help from you. 🙂 x

I started going to see Bobby after having a bad experience where I collapsed in a restaurant and I tried to ignore my anxiety until it got the better of me, I stopped going out, to work, I couldn't even leave the house and I couldn't see that I would ever be able to. I've been seeing Bobby for two or three months now and to look back at where I was then and where I am now is truly amazing. Ok so I haven't been out on the town yet but I take the dog out every day, I've been going to do the shopping. Having conversations with strangers when I'm out on the walks whereas a couple of months ago the very thought of seeing someone else out on a dog walk would have terrified me. I am getting further and further in my journey everyday and that's all down to Bobby. I was worried at first but he put me at ease straight away and it also helps that he has a gorgeous dog and cat, being an animal person that also helped relax me Thanks Bobby.

I have been visiting Bobby after having a fear of walking my dog after an unfortunate experience almost a year ago. When I first saw Bobby I couldn't even get to the end of the lane from my home. Today we had a wonderful walk, I was so proud of myself and couldn't wait to tell everyone. Bobby is a wonderful man, it feels like visiting a friend rather than a therapist. We have a lovely giggle most weeks. Thank you Bobby for helping me think differently about life, your friendly but professional personality put me at complete ease.

I have been seeing Bobby for 11 months & cannot rate him highly enough. After several years of personal bereavements and changes in my life, I was becoming increasingly anxious & depressed about normal everyday issues. I was pessimistic about everything & did not like the person I was becoming. I must admit that I had never considered hypnotherapy before, but was won over by a chance meeting with Bobby, who said that it might help me. His friendly manner and total professionalism makes him very easy to talk to and he gradually works his magic by just making you think in a different and more positive way. I cannot believe the change this has brought about and as a result my outlook on life is much more positive. My only comment to anyone considering this type of therapy, is to give it a chance. Everyone is different and it is no use giving up after 6 sessions thinking that it doesn't work. Some issues are deep rooted and it takes time for your brain to learn to think differently - in my case changing a habit of some 50 years!! Thank you Bobby for everything.

Bobby moved his schedule around completely to accommodate me. I had a fear of needles that stopped me going to the dentist/doctors for years. After finding a lump and realising injections were inevitable I asked bobby for help. We had three sessions that were squeezed in as quickly as he could and I'm happy to say that I have had the all clear and had my last blood test on Friday. I was sceptical of hypnotherapy at first but going from passing out at the sight of a needle to not even allowing my heart rate to rise is unbelievable!! No sweating, weakness or fear at all! Thank you Bobby

Bobby's relaxed and affable personality, (with his sense of humour always bubbling just under the surface!) plus the peaceful and contemplative environment of his Tarlton office, guided me towards a state of increased self-belief and positivity about myself. He uses a combination of repetition to understand the mechanics of brain behaviour along with Solution Focused Therapy, which encouraged me to think in a different way and avoid the negative potholes that I tended to fall into. Result - increased determination, positive outlook and very positive outcome. Thanks Bobby!

I have just arrived home from the GPs with a very happy daughter. She has just had her triple jab injections with absolutely no fuss whats so ever. Up until seeing bobby libby wasn't even able to sit down in the doctors room let alone be any where near the needle, she had a real fear of injections that was getting worse. Libby had 3 sessions with bobby and that has more than clearly worked. Libby could not stop smiling when she came out of the doctors room, we are both so happy and amazed that hypnotherapy actually gets results. Thank you so much bobby, i may come about my biscuit addiction 🙂

I had four sessions with Bobby due to a fear I have developed of rodents. After these four sessions I now feel more comfortable around rodents and more aware of how I can control my feelings towards them. I also found the sessions I spent with Bobby helpful in other ways. I feel they have helped me to have a greater understanding of the brain and to be able to think more positively about life in general and all that it can throw at you.

Went to see Bobby because l was feeling depressed,put on loads of weight because l was "comfort eating". After only afew sessions l was feeling like a different person. Lost lots of weight,feel positive about life and sorted out lots of issues that l didn't realise that l had. l was even able to get back on my bike and ride with confidence after an unfortunate incident. l would wholeheartedly recommend Bobby. Not only is he a gifted therapist but very friendly and will quickly put you at ease.

Since my sessions with Bobby I'm making much better choices with regards to my diet and exercise and generally I'm feeling very positive. I didn't have too much trouble sleeping before however with Bobby's relaxation CD I'm asleep in seconds and have a very good sleep right through. Now I haven't magically stopped liking food but it's better than that... It's now me, I've stopped choosing the wrong thing, I WANT to eat the right things and when I do still sometimes choose the wrong thing I don't enjoy it like I used to. I actually want to do positive activity and the gym has become somewhere I enjoy going but more than that I CHOOSE to go, I don't make excuses why not to anymore. It's my mind and thought process that's been re-trained and I notice it and use it all the time not only in respect of my diet it helps you think through lots of things in a different, much clearer more positive way. I thank Bobby very much for fixing me
