About David Stocks MNSPH, SQHP, GHR(Reg), CNHC, RSM
Hypnotherapy in Fife and Edinburgh - Psychotherapy in Hypnosis for IBS, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Weight Loss (Slimming) and eating disorders such as Anorexia & Bulimia, Phobias, PTSD and the effects of past abuse or violence such as low self-esteem and lack of confidence and motivation.
We are all a result of our pasts. Everything that happens to us affects us in some way, every second of every day. When things happen that we wish hadn’t happened, we don’t want them to be true. Our minds don’t want to process the events and the memory (together with the RAW EMOTION) get stuck in the short-term memory.
The trouble is, the Unconscious Mind, the part of us the FEELS emotion is in charge of memory. It also doesn’t understand time - you’re not sad next week - so it thinks that things in the short-term memory must be new and part of our current lives. It therefore feels the emotion from these memories as if they’ve just happened! This makes us feel bad, when we shouldn’t and makes us, for example, seek comfort in food.
My approach is to finally deal with these events. Let’s put them in the past where they belong! I therefore take time to really listen and understand my clients, so my sessions last up to around 2 hours with each costing £80, roughly equivalent to £40 per hour. (This typically reduces the number of sessions required to about 5 instead of 12 to 15.)

My training, work experience and any achievement

I reduce the charges for children, and in some cases of special hardship such as for students.
I specialise in Hypnoanalysis (Psychotherapy in Hypnosis), dealing with the root causes of many issues such as Anxiety & Panic Attacks, Weight Loss and Food Issues, Anorexia & Bulimia, Addictions - Alcohol /cigarattes /drugs,
We all have things in our lives that we wish hadn’t happened. Often, we deal with these by NOT dealing with them. We bury them in our short-term memories as unprocessed memories. The trouble is, the Unconscious goes through the short-term memory all the time: It keeps finding these memories. The Unconscious doen’t understand time - we’re not sad NEXT WEEK - it’s NOW. It feels the emotions in these memories as if they’ve just happened. So the emotion from unhappy childhoods, abuse, violent partners, etc., stays with us and affects how we feel NOW.
I help you deal with the events and put them to bed in the Long-Term memeory - where they should have been all along!
Before committing to paying for treatment, we have a long chat (90 - 120 minutes) where we talk about your problem and how hypnotherapy MAY help. This Initial Consultation is absolutely free. You only pay if you decide to go ahead with treatment and have your first actual hypnotherapy session.
I will be eternally grateful to David for freeing me from the trauma of my past. I cannot recommend his treatment highly enough.
I went to see David a few months ago because I was feeling a sense of dread and anxiety about my day to day life that I knew was irrational and felt that hypnotherapy might help to address this. After about 6 sessions I felt there was a dramatic improvement in my outlook and reduction in feeling of anxiety. If you are unsure if David can help you, give him a call first and he can talk to you about how he can support you and how hypnotherapy works. He is a very pleasant person and the hypnotherapy sessions were very relaxing. Give it a go!
When I first saw David I was suffering from depression and anxiety. I did not know what to expect from hypnotherapy but David put me at ease from the beginning. David also helped me deal with other issues as well. I benefited greatly from hypnotherapy and my anxiety was greatly reduced. I would have no hesitation in recommending David for anyone who has issues that is impacting on their life.
For anyone who is considering hypnotherapy (most likely as a so called "last resort", as I was) I can highly recommend discussing your treatment options with David. I had a really hard time with general anxiety and panic disorder and I can absolutely vouch for the fact that hypnotherapy sessions have helped me to get better. I had approximately 6 or 7 sessions (David please correct me if I’m wrong!) and I can say for certain that this contributed to the improvement I am showing now. If you have ideas about what you think hypnotherapy involves then I will presumptuously say that you are most likely wrong - as I was. It isn’t a scary thing, and in fact can be quite relaxing - especially if you are someone who doesnt get the opportunity to feel relaxed often. So thanks, David, for helping me be less terrified of pretty much everything! :)
