About Paul Levrant
"Only when you change the way you look at things, will the things you look at change".
My own background was in the corporate world; dealing with giant commercial organisations like Arcadia. My career meant travelling extensively and repeatedly throughout Europe and the Far East, and spending a great deal of time in China and Hong Kong.
It became clear to me a number of years ago that the people I was interacting with were becoming increasingly affected by the pressures in their daily lives (both at home and in their work). Anxiety seemed an inescapable part of every activity, and inevitably illness of some kind would be the result.
Why is it so hard to change?
So many of us know without a shadow of a doubt that a particular course of action that we take, or a certain pattern of behaviour that we follow is having a negative effect on us. All we have to do then, is to decide to not do this particular thing any more, do something else instead, and that's it - problem over.
So why don't we do it?
Realising how difficult it was to find simple, direct help for stress-related conditions led me to seek to learn more, and I found that Hypnotherapy and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) were methods that seemed to achieve consistently remarkable results. I was intrigued enough to decide to become a Therapist myself with the aim of specialising in anxiety control and stress management. I began practising in North London in Highgate and in Radlett in Hertfordshire. I also practise in the City of London at the Gestalt Centre and at the London East Counselling Therapy Rooms.
I was greatly interested in the development of an enhanced therapy that would focus entirely on the client and how best to help them. So by combining the great power of Clinical Hypnotherapy with the modern behavioural techniques of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), the 'Hypnowellness' approach was developed.
Accepting and understanding that even small behavioural changes can be extremely difficult to make - even when these changes are essential for our own wellbeing - was and still is the driving force behind the creation and development of the Hypnowellness approach.
Hypnowellness is an integrated combined therapeutic approach that is completely client-centred and entirely focused on your issues. By first assisting you to understand how 'negative' thinking; unwanted habits; and unhelpful behaviours become established; and then by gently helping you to learn how to regain control over these vital processes; the all-important changes can begin to take place.
This integrated approach makes the therapy positively enjoyable and easy to understand.
My special interest in Hypnodieting (weight loss hypnotherapy) grew through a realisation of the great unhappiness that dieters experienced when attempting to control their weight through restriction and denial of certain foods. The constant failure of their 'yo-yo' dieting regimes seemed to inevitably lead to a steady erosion of self-esteem; and then on to even more self sabotage.
Hypnodieting was conceived as an antidote to these methods. By concentrating on behavioural control and life-style change; the Hypnodieting experience is a very different approach; with the emphasis on relaxation and positive self-determination. I now train other therapists in this highly specialised and important field.
