Meet Your Practitioner  

liam mongelard hypnotherapist

I am a father, a husband, a writer and a holistic hypnotherapist. 


What do I mean by holistic hypnotherapy?

Traditional therapy tends to prescribe one approach, looking at people from one perspective.  I prefer to understand the whole person in front of me, your needs, wants, habits, values, beliefs - your story - only then can I offer a diverse set of approaches that can enable you to be happier, healthier and live your life more fully.

This holistic approach is informed by my experience in traditional counselling as well as multi-disciplinary hypnosis and the varied life I have lived. 

There is a whole that must be understood, not a part. 

Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, an OCD, stress or perhaps asking yourself questions about life goals and career aspirations, my holistic approach will help you in your journey of change.


What is hypnosis? 

Hypnosis is something we all do every day, it is an altered state: when we lock the front door and forget, when we turn off the oven and are not quite sure if we did, when we drive home in an almost auto-pilot state. When we go to sleep and wake up. 


In these moments we are in altered hypnoidal states and this is how we should define hypnosis. 


As a hypnotherapist my role is to take the natural human predisposition towards altered states and heighten it. Once we do that, the many barriers to change that humans present - ego structures, denial, coping mechanisms - can be softened, then you can find yourself open to new possibilities and perspectives, perhaps even with an improved outlook on yourself and your life.

How and why
does hypnotherapy work?

Speaking the language of the subconscious

The power of images and imagination in hypnotherapy to help a client resolve an issue where other methods have not worked
Hypnotherapy is a safe relaxing wonderful experience with a guide along side you to help you explore a subconscious landscape where meaningful images you create help you to reprogramme  your issue

Language is a wonderful tool, perhaps our greatest. But in traditional therapy, client & therapist can often stay within the confines of this conscious verbal exchange of words. Regrettably this will only get you so far.

Hypnotherapy works because it speaks the language of the subconscious, that of images and metaphors, operating beyond the confines of conscious thought. This is a language humans have been speaking long before we spoke words. It is why, as a species, we are obsessed with storytelling: from the first homo-sapiens carving animal likeness into cave walls, to folklore and myths to epic poems, plays, scripts, TV, films, video games, documentaries, blogs, vlogs, podcasts, social media…the list goes on.

Stories are how we understand the world around us, yet we often don't understand our own story, the one our subconscious has been shaping for us, about us, since we were born.  In hypnotherapy, employing metaphors allows practitioners to communicate with the subconscious, as it comprehends and processes symbols, stories, and visualizations more readily than explicit language. Why do we sometimes say, “I cant explain it” or “a picture is worth a thousand words” – the subconscious has all the words, only they aren’t words, they are a lifetime of bits of information. Every experience, interaction and piece of stimulation you have encountered has been stored away by your subconscious creating a construct of you, by you, for you - only you have had no say in this construction. Hypnotherapy gives you the keys to this library of information that has constructed you. With a better understanding of your own story, your beliefs, your doubts, your habits, your desires, then you can reorganize your story, change your own construction, and enable profound shifts in perception, beliefs, and behavior, addressing issues that might have resisted resolution through conventional methods.

I do not change you, i do not hypnotize you. I simply guide you into a relaxed altered state, where you can communicate with your subconscious, it is you who changes yourself. I do this by using the natural ideomotor movements we all have as humans. What is, an ideomotor movement? Again, it is a language without words and it is the subconscious revealing itself to us in subtle ways, think for example when someone's leg is tapping under the table, they may not even be aware of it, but it reveals anxiety, boredom or excitement - only in hypnotherapy these automatic movements can be used to our benefit. I the hypnotherapist watch for these non verbal cues in you, to understands that you consciously and your subconscious are aligned on why you are seeing me and on what storytelling tools will work for you. 


Then the hypnotherapy begins. 


Events post 2019 meant both I and clients had to go online and what i discovered was quite amazing. Not only did hypnotherapy online work, but it often yieled better results.
