Greg Nejedly
HPD, DHP, MNCH (Reg), MSc

If  you’re looking for effective hypnotherapy in Bristol, you’re in the right place. My name is Greg Nejedly and for nearly 15 years, I have had the privilege of being able to treat many people in and around Bristol for a wide range of issues. No matter what your experience of life has been or what your current situation looks like, I know that every single person has the capacity within themselves to make the changes they want to make.

My approach to helping you overcome your issues is to understand that your past does not have to influence your future in a negative way. Instead, we can learn to accept the past for what it was, changing perceptions when needed, while moving forward by strengthening your resources, and creating new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving.

What Is Hypnotherapy And How Can It Help?

Milton H Erickson who was the founding president of the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis made a huge contribution to the practice of hypnotherapy because of his ground-breaking methods. Ericksonian Therapy was borne out of Milton’s hypnotic strategies and language patterns which were more indirect than the classical authoritarian approach of giving direct suggestions which were more commanding.

You may have heard of Neuro-linguistic programming, otherwise known as NLP which was actually developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in part by studying Milton Erickson. Depending on your situation there are some NLP techniques which can be used to help you overcome traumatic experiences and bad habits.

Hypnotherapy is considered both a complementary and alternative therapy. In my opinion, it shouldn’t be used as an alternative to other well established and accepted main stream practices and should therefore really be used in conjunction with other available options. It’s a very effective therapeutic approach which complements other therapies.

Hypnotherapy can also be used to help you overcome bad habits. A bad habit is simply a negative behaviour pattern such as nail biting, smoking, unhealthy eating, excessive drinking, procrastination, negative self-talk and so on.  A bad habit will be carried out unconsciously which is why it can be difficult to stop.

Do I Have to Be Based In Bristol To Make Use Of Your Hypnotherapy Service?

The short answer is no. If you are not located in Bristol, I am able to offer sessions via Skype. If this is more suitable because of your distance from the clinic, please get in touch via the contact form here.

What Is Hypnosis?

The word “hypnosis” is sometimes wrongly attributed to James Braid who was a Scottish surgeon and considered the “father of modern hypnotism”.  The word derives from the ancient Greek word “hypnos” which means ‘sleep’ because of the sleep-like state that people would enter into when they were hypnotised. It was  later realised that people who are hypnotised are not actually asleep but rather, are in a highly focused state of awareness.

When you are hypnotised, it is very common to enter into a deep state of relaxation where you may experience feelings of lightness or heaviness, where your mind may drift from time to time but still able to hear the words that are spoken, although perhaps not remembering everything that has been said. When you enter into a nice relaxing hypnotic state, a combination of direct and indirect suggestions are made to the subconscious mind to help it re-evaluate situations and experiences and update it’s perceptions to create new ways of thinking and feeling about the problems that are holding you back.

Hypnosis increases your suggestibility which means the probability of your mind to accept suggestions is increased. This does not mean it will accept all suggestions. You cannot be forced to do anything you do not want to do, instead the subconscious can reject any suggestions that go against your deeply held moral views about the world. 

If you are aware of the Placebo effect, you’ll appreciate how powerful the mind truly is. Simply believing a pill has the power to get rid of debilitating back pain, can have the effect of ridding yourself of back pain, even after being told the pill simply contained sugar.

Your beliefs create an expectation of our future and mould our awareness to notice all the evidence that proves our belief. If we think the world is a cold, dark and dangerous place, we will prove it to ourself. If on the other hand we believe the world is full of opportunity, wonder and happiness, we will prove this to ourself. Hypnosis helps us communicate with the subconscious to create more helpful beliefs.

Solution Focused Brief Therapy

Everything we do is in line with the goals and objectives you would like to achieve and this is accomplished through a process known as Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). SF Therapy works on the premise that we can overcome neurosis without having to trawl through all of our history to understand the root cause of a problem. I am a firm believer that we do not have to be slave to our emotional past. Instead we can recognise our current situation and realise we can make changes in the present that affect our future for the better.  

During our SF therapy sessions we are able to focus more on what you would like to achieve rather than why something has gone wrong and what you don’t want in life. Having said that, it does not mean that we neglect the problems as it is important to provide an accurate understanding of your concerns.

What People Say

I went to see Greg because I was suffering with work-related stress and anxiety. I wasn’t sleeping properly; waking in the early hours of the morning feeling anxious about the day or week ahead. Sunday nights and Monday mornings were dreadful. At work I often felt tense and irritable. Anxiety about work seemed to have seeped through into every aspect of my life – even when I was at home, supposedly away from work.Greg was able to explain in a very clear way how the more primitive parts of the brain can allow anxiety levels to increase.

Within a week after seeing Greg for the first time, I felt a noticeable improvement in my stress and anxiety levels. After several weeks I now feel like a different person, able to view life in perspective, to cope with issues at work and, most importantly, to be able to have free time away from work which really is away from work. I also no longer wake in the early hours of the morning feeling anxious.

Mick

I can’t thank Greg enough for the help he has given me in dealing with anxiety. My outlook on life has also changed and I no longer worry about what may happen as I just take each day as it comes.

I didn’t realise what a difference hypnotherapy could make and I would encourage anyone experiencing difficulties of any kind to give it a try. Just follow the advice that Greg gives you in the calm and relaxed atmosphere at his practice and keep listening to the recording that you will be given and you will turn things around.

Julia
I underwent Hypnosis by Greg on 25th of April for quitting smoking, two months on, no cravings !!!!
Nick

I’ve been meaning to email you to let you know that the presentation went well. I felt much more relaxed and confident about it, and wasn’t worried about what people were thinking. I had lots of nice comments afterwards which was also reassuring.

I had to do another presentation last week to a smaller audience, and although it’s not something I enjoy I certainly don’t feel as anxious about it. I found the techniques you taught me very useful. I’m amazed at the difference!

Helen
I saw Greg probably 3 years ago for six sessions. Since then my life has turned around. I now know how to turn off the triggers for my panic attacks and anxiety. I still listen to the relaxation CD he gave me whenever I need it. Chills me out completely. I highly recommend Greg's services.
