Dear Dr David Kraft
I am looking for a psychotherapist who can helping me with my IBS. I have been to the GP and I still suffer from IBS. I get bloated, and stomach cramps; I also suffer from diarrhoea and constipation although this alternates and only happens occasionally. Te doctors said that this was all down to stress and I felt that this was the case too. When I am not at work–I am a solicitor–I do not have any symptoms at all. I love y work but it is so stressful. My GP, who is also a friend of mine and the family, suggested that I see a hypnotherapist but someone who is also trained in psychotherapy. I looked at your website and found your name. Can you treat me. I also see that you have written a paper on the treatment of IBS using hypnotherapy, and you obviously have had a great deal of experience in this form of treatment. In the paper you use hypnotherapy and use a river approach. I thought that this sounded interesting, but I don’t know much about it. My family are worried about me because this has affected my social life too. I want desperately to see a hypnotherapist now so that I can get better. So, after much deliberation, I decided to go to you, to get some help privately. I have been to a hypnotherapist in London Before. He used hypnotherapy to treat my anxiety, but the hypnotherapy, in this case, transformed me into someone who was not stressed but who had IBS. This is no good. I want to be able to cope with the stresses of life without converting it into pain or anxiety. I think that I am a little bit neurotic and I want to use the hypnotherapy to help me control this. Can you do all this? If you can help, please e-mail back. I know that the treatment might last a while but I am ready to sorry this IBS out now.
Dear Mrs F
I can certainly help. Please give me a ring on 0207 467 8564 and arrange a consultation session. In this session, we will construct a treatment programme that that suits you. When you are in treatment, you will notice an immediate difference in the way you feel. The hypnotherapy also help you to get better on your own, and I will teach you self hypnosis for you to use in stressful situations. In my experience, the hypnotherapy has long lasting effects.

I have been a smoker for about thirty-five years. I have now cut down to 5 cigarettes a day, but I am unable to stop smoking altogether. I can give up smoking for a day or two at a time, but after that I get really stressed, and feel that I need something to calm me down. Smoking calms me down. Smoking makes me relax. When I smoke, I become, somehow, philosophical and have the ability to deal with aspects of my life with more clarity. But as soon as I put the fag out, I feel dirty, as if I have done something wrong. Please help because I want to give up now. Smoking makes me feel wheezy when I go for a walk, and after I smoke people comment that I smell. Not all the time but when I least expect it. I hate it. I heard that hypnotherapy was really good and can help me give up very easily. Can you see me soon? 13SharonVigour
Yes. Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy is a very valuable tool and has helped many people give up smoking. At London Hypnotherapy UK, I use aversion therapy and a number of visualization and imagery in treatment. The results have been excellent. I have an appointment available for you next Wednesday. Please give the office a ring and they will sort out an appointment for you. The number is 0207 467 8564. The best of luck.

In addition, hypnotherapy can be used to enhance performance and to help the client to realize his or her own potential in a range of areas. Hypnotherapy can help individuals to change their lives in profound ways, providing them initially with the support that they need, and then the ability to utilize the skills and maximize the potential that they always and already have.
Dr David Kraft uses psychotherapy in conjunction with hypnosis: this combined approach is supportive and very powerful indeed.
