Dr David Kraft works at 10 Harley Street, but also offers telephone psychotherapy sessions on request. This works for some poeple; obviously hypnosis is not done during telephone sessions. Although principally a psychotherapist, his approach hypnosis with psychodynamic psychotherapy. Dr Kraft uses hypnosis to work with the full gamut psychological conditions–in particular, he helps individuals suffering from anxiety, eating disorders (mostly, bulimia), sleeping disorders, depression, OCD, phobic anxiety, IBS, panic attacks, PTSD amongst many others. Hypnosis is not always used; however, the procedure is always discussed with the client, and the programme of treatment is designed by both client and therapist. Some therapeutic programmes have been renamed recently by hypnotherapists–they speak off stop smoking hypnosis, weight loss hypnosis, confidence hypnosis, sleeping disorders hypnosis etc. The techniques employed here are not new; however, they have been labelled as such to make it easier for clients to understand, and search for on the world wide web.

Dr Kraft is sometimes available to have an informal chat about hypnotherapy and how hypnosis works.

It is important to note that hypnosis is a very safe form of treatment and that there are no side effects. At London Hypnotherapy UK, we believe that every individual has the ability in the hypnosis to realize his or her own potential, and this can be augmented and worked on outside the consulting room. Dr David Kraft also teaches self hypnosis to his clients: this helps because it gives individuals more control between sessions. In addition, the use of hypnosis provides a cost effective form of treatment; results are long lasting and the whole approach does not use medication.
