    Posted on


    Can I use hypnotherapy on Skype to help with worries about Coronavirus?

    With the rise in the number of cases of coronavirus around the world more and more people are suffering from stress and anxiety about what could happen to them or their family if they caught the coronavirus.

    As a therapist who sees people both in person and online via Skype I have already seen an increase in people looking for some help in dealing  with the stress and also those who cannot visit, because they are either too far away from me or are self isolating because they know someone or have even contracted coronavirus themselves.

    I first started using skype to help people suffering from Stress and Anxiety as well as Phobias and Insomnia. It quickly became clear that I was able to work with people who I would otherwise not be able to help. I started working with clients who were abroad using the Skype technology, and Hypnosis, EMDR, EFT and other techniques helping them to Quit Smoking and Lose Weight without diets. From sweeden Italy, Ireland and Germany, to the USA Spain and Hungary and it grew from there.



    Now I am also able to work with so many more people around the world who are many miles away from my location. Would you like some help in the comfort of your own home? Now you don't even need to leave your house to make the changes that you really want and let go of the past.

    Where you are really doesn't matter any more ! 
    Skype Hypnotherapy and all of the ways that it can help come to you in the comfort of your own home.

    You can watch my SKYPE Therapy FAQ Video below to find out more about how a session of Hypnotherapy on Skype can help you: it should answer any questions that you have about how things work...


    How does Skype Hypnosis work?

    As long as you have an internet connection and a computer with a webcam and microphone then we can work together. In fact often clients work with me using iPads and other tablets and phones to make it even easier. As I have been working online with Skype hypnosis sessions for a long time at first most people used their PC or Laptop, but now people can use their phone and even listen to recordings that I make them on their phones as an extra benfit as well.

    Hypnosis via Skype is really easy for you to experience. You don't need to travel to me. So it saves you the stress of that journey, no need to worry about traffic jams, or being late for your hypnotherapy appointment. I use many different techniques which mean that we can help you get exactly what you want and I even make you personalised Hypnosis MP3s that you can listen to at home whenever you want to.

    You may even find that being in your own home environment really helps to make you feel even more safe and secure.

    We can talk and even do our full sessions via your webcam or we can chat and then I can make you a custom MP3 and send it to you so that you can listen in your own time. This technology really brings your chance to have therapy so much closer. To find out more you can either drop me an email by clicking on Email Mark Powlett

  2. Hypnosis for Coronavirus Anxiety Covid-19

    Hypnotherapy to help with stress and anxiety caused by worry about Coronavirus Covid - 19

    coronavirus hypnosis and mediation for stress and anxiety

    COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus.

    You can't have escaped the news about Coronavirus and how it has spread from China around the world.  For once the news channels are not finding that Donald Trump or Brexit are their top stories. Instead they are focussing on the virus, and how it is spreading. Of course Trump and Brexit can also be responsible for stress, worry and anxiety in people too.

    Where we are...

    At the moment we are in the early months of the Corona Virus and we are still finding out all about it, how it spreads and who could be affected the most.

    I am already starting to hear from people who are worried about what could happen to them or their family if they were to contract this new virus. People are aware that unlike the flu virus there is currently no vaccine available.

    Just having a flu jab works in two ways in helping you with worry. Firstly you have given yourself a really good chance of not getting the flu, that's the physical side of things. The other side, the mental health issue, means that you can tick it off the list of things that you may worry about. That is why people are finding that they are more worried about this and the uncertainty than anything else.

    What are the symptoms of coronavirus?

    The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.

    • a cough
    • a high temperature
    • shortness of breath

    It is important to note that having these symptoms does not necessarily mean you have the illness.

    How is coronavirus is spread?

    Because it's a new illness, we do not know exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person. Similar viruses are spread in cough droplets. It's very unlikely it can be spread through things like packages or food.

    Tips on how to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus

    Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds. You can try singing happy birthday so that you know how long to do it for.


    Make sure you always wash your hands when you get home or into work, or you can use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.

    If you cough or sneeze make sure that you cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve rather than your hands.

    Always put used tissues in the bin straight away and then wash your hands afterwards.

    If you can do keep away from people who are unwell.

    It is also very important that you do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.

    Helping to let go of stress and anxiety with hypnosis

    So, at the moment there are lots of unknowns about what could happen. It is of course natural that we may start to worry about these but we can learn to let go of them. If we do all the things that are suggested above then we will make things easier for ourselves and everyone else too.

    Taking time out to relax... Whatever people come to see me about there is one thing that most people really do not do enough of. That thing is simply to take time out to relax on a daily basis. If you practice meditation, hypnosis and mindfulness things may surprise you by becoming easier. Helping to reduce our stress levels is always a good idea.

    Let's start right now. All you need to do is take a few minutes out to listen to the recording below. It is only one minute long and just taking one minute to help your breathing relax and let go of your worries is a really good start!


    If you have a little more time and enjoyed that simple start then here is something a little longer that you can try..


    Remember that just taking a few minutes out of your day can start to make a real difference...and also make sure you wash those hands!
