I have referred several patients to see David Faratian because I believe he is one of the best in his field...

Weight Loss Hypnotherapy
Gastric Band hypnosis is one of the most unheard of systems for reprogramming your relationship with food for effective and long lasting weight control. Visit our dedicated page to find out why it is so effective.
Treatment for Anxiety & Panic Attacks
Hypnotherapy has a proven track record when it comes to helping people neutralise and eliminate generalised anxiety disorders and panic attacks. Your can find out more detail here.
Hypnotherapy for Fear
When it comes to fear. Fear of flying, fear of spiders, fear of needles etc hypnosis and NLP can help rewire the neurology of the brain so that the physiological responses associated with fear (heart palpitations, sweating, nausea, tension) are effectively neutralised and replaced by a sense of control and calm.

Most gamblers are driven by the thrill of the win. Once the reward centre of the brain can be trained to 'feel no thrill' around any gambling activity, the pattern of behaviour can begin to change. Find out more here
Stress Management Hypnotherapy
Stress is a silent killer and very prolific in our society. Although it is as dangerous as smoking and alcohol abuse it is often underestimated. To relieve stress consciously is very difficult and is often treated through medication. The techniques we teach can powerfully combat what we refer to as latent or background stress naturally and medication free, which in turn can help with irregular blood pressure, sleep problems, daily functioning and even IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
A growing area of alternative therapy is Mindfulness. The reason it is becoming more and more popular, in industry, in health and even in schools is because through mindfulness you can learn to achieve a mental state which is focused only on the present regardless of what might be a natural tendency to worry about the future. This can be incredibly helpful when dealing with most forms of stress and anxiety disorders, whether in the work place or just more generally in life.

“David quickly and efficiently resolves deep rooted issues.”
Faye (Barrow, Cumbria)
“David was always professional and came across as highly experienced and responsive in dealing with my case. I have learned techniques I will build on and am happy with the time I have spent” RE: Anger Management
Paul (Millom, Cumbria)
“Thank you David for helping to free me from my addiction! I have to admit that I went into this treatment as a slight sceptic and more as a last resort and now I can't believe how this has changed my life. Even though I was completely aware of what was happening during our sessions, my mind set has totally been changed. The word "free" is how I feel and I love it. Once you are given the tools to open your mind, I was then open to the re-programming of my thought processes which I know will be life changing going forward. Thank you so much. Kindest regards” RE: PTSD and GAD
Linda (Barrow, Cumbria)
“I have been so happy with results from the first session. It helped enormously with some long standing issues. I would highly recommend David’s treatment, particularly if other approaches have not worked.” RE: OCD

I have learned that I may have to accept pain as part of my life but I can control how much it affects my life. Thanks David" RE: Pain management hypnotherapy and mindfulness
Bill J (Lancaster, Lancashire)
I started seeing David for weight loss, at the end of January '17, it is now the end of April and I have lost 2st 8lb without even trying. With Davids help I have been able to change the relationship I have with food, once a person who would snack all day on sweets and crisps, eat all the wrong types of foods, I now don't snack, and my meals are a lot healthier than they were. So my advice to anyone reading this that wants to lose weight, throw away the slimming world magazines, and weight watchers point calculators, and give David a call, you will be surprised at the change he can make in your life, I know I was. RE: Weight Management Hypnotherapy
Diane (Whitehaven, Cumbria)
David was really understanding and made me feel as ease during the sessions. The voice notes through Dropbox helped massively. 3 sessions of hypotherapy has been a huge success. I would 100% recommend David - RE: Food Anxiety
Katie (Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria)
This has been a great experience for me, not only the hypnotherapy, but the psychological side of my relationship with food, so far it has changed the way I look at food and the way I eat, and already I have experienced weight loss, and feel that this is the way forward for me. David fully understands my problems and deals with this without judgment, he makes you feel comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. RE: Gastricband Hypnosis
Diane (Whitehaven, Cumbria)
I don't have the issues with dogs before the sessions it has worked very well for me RE: Fear of dogs
Phil (Ulverston, Cumbria)
I can not recommend the Cumbria Hypnosis Habit Change Clinic highly enough. Before I went to see David I was stuck in a constant cycle of yo-yo dieting. Six months since I began seeing David I have lost an amazing 3 stone 8 pounds, and I am still losing. I now have a new outlook on life, I have more energy and I can wear what I want! Thank you so much David. RE: Gastricband Hypnotherapy
Kathryn (Kendal, Cumbria)
I really thought It wouldn't work because I am stubborn and felt that this perhaps was just going to be another failure. In a short space of time I have lost 11lbs without thinking. It just works for me. I have learnt to release my addictions and not give in to them. RE: Gastricband Hypnosis / Weight control
Dion (Kendal, Cumbria)
I found the atmosphere approachable and interactive. Having never experienced anything like this before it was also extremely informative and will definitely be interested in coming back with any other issues in the future RE: Exam Anxiety

Very pleased with how it went, defiantly would recommend to anyone with any issues! RE: Social Anxiety /Confidence
Daniel (Carlisle, Cumbria)
My experience with Cumbria Hypnosis was excellent. I was a little apprehensive at first, but David put me totally at ease and gave me the confidence I needed to undertake my hypnotherapy course. Everything is going well so far and I would not hesitate to recommend David to anyone who is thinking of undergoing hypnotherapy. RE: Gastric Band Hypnosis

Debbie (Kendal, Cumbria)
I have had emetophobia fo ten years plus, and by this point never thought I would be cured but Cumbria hypnosis has helped me so much and I would certainly recommend to anyone who isn't sure of what hypnotherapy may entail. RE: Fear of vomiting
Chelsee (Carlisle, Cumbria)
I feel I can now go forward with confidence to experience the not only special occasions but also the everyday things which to "normal" people would be the mundane when coping with not having two feet on the ground. These things which in the past were beyond my abilities. RE: Fear of Heights
Jim (Windermere, Cumbria)
I would recommend this as this has changed my life and made me be able to lead my normal life again instead of being scared to leave the house and not wasting to be here anymore because it was controlling my life. Have been able to to go back to work, carry on with my driving lessons and go out on my own again. I feel so much happier than I have before and that's all down to my hypnotherapy sessions off Cumbria Hypnosis. I can't thank him enough for helping me get my life back RE: Panic Attacks
Stephanie (Barrow, Cumbria)

It was excellent service and really changed my way of thinking about food. RE: Weight Control

David (Carlisle, Cumbria)
Cumbria hypnosis helped me to realise where my phobia had stemmed from and helped me put into place tactics and strategies to overcome all of the things that made me feel anxious. Week by week I could see the things we have practiced in the sessions working and could use them in context. I can do so much more than I thought I could do at the start of the sessions and feel so much happier in myself. I feel like these sessions are the prologue of a life which I now can enjoy without being trapped with my phobia. RE: Fear of blood
Molly (Dalton, Cumbria)
I never thought I'd be able to rid myself of anxiety I've been medicated but even that didn't stop it. I felt lost and scared the anxiety would only go if I ended my life, I have two young girls and couldn't put them through doing that and a friend recommended hypnosis it has changed my life, I'm not anxious scared or ashamed of myself I am now calm happy and excited for my future I can't thank David (Cumbria Hypnosis) enough RE: Panic Attacks

David cares and that is so much more than others I've seen. Thank you RE: Weight Loss Hypnotherapy

Molly (Ulverston, Cumbria)
Prior to starting my sessions I was still very unsure of what the effect or outcome would be for me. I am pleased to say that the results have made a huge difference to both my private life and mostly to my professional life. I would say that the balance has been corrected resulting in a less stressful life style. re: Stress & Anxiety therapy

The results have been amazing and life changing. I came with healthy sceptism but have been proved wrong, this really works! RE: SCRT Gastric Band Hypnotherapy
Paul (Carlisle, Cumbria)
For the first time in 40 odd years... thanks to you 7 months since my first session I am nearly 4.5 stone lighter and am not dieting. I've been on holiday, had Xmas, eaten out etc all without the need to "treat" myself with puddings, cakes etc and have even came out of the Xmas break 3 lbs lighter. The work we did isn't "wearing off" as I feared - it's now just how I am - sorted and in control. Thank you so much. Please feel free to share this if you would like. All the best for the new year
Lesley (Dalton, Cumbria)
Visiting David came at just the right time. I had been suffering from many forms of anxiety for a long period of time. David tailored his support specifically to my needs and was able to tackle each issue head on. I cannot thank David enough for how this has enabled me to let go. RE: PTSD and Anxiety

It was my last resort having tried numerous diets and to my amazement still not sure how it works but I have learnt how to eat properly and enjoy my food but also how to be less stressed so for me it has been a double blessing and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. It has changed my life for the better and I have lost 9lbs in 3 weeks with no effort whatsoever.

Michelle (Windermere, Cumbria)
I had tried everything possible with the fear of flying I had from drugs, alcohol and a mixture of both. Nothing worked and I'd almost given up when someone asked had I tried hypnosis. At this point I searched online and found the Cumbria hypnosis clinic and the next is history, looking forward to my summer holiday this august ...all I can say is try it before your fear takes hold of your life
Teresa (Barrow, Cumbria)
You're going to get extremely bored of me! I have lost a total of 19lbs! Sooooo happy! I've re-read the secret (again!) and every morning I count my blessings. Life is good! x

Robert (Barrow, Cumbria)
My life was in a downward spiral because of gambling and I had tried everything from quitting cold turkey to Gamcare and even counselling. This has been the only thing which has changed my attitude. I really don't understand how it has worked but the results have been amazing and I finally have my life back on track

May have to try and get you to help me give up my Landrover's, Maybe I'm not ready for that!

Want help with a limiting behaviour, phobia, anxiety or panic attack?
What Is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is an altered but completely natural state of consciousness which you can enter into for therapeutic purposes so that beneficial suggestions may be given directly to your unconscious mind. The ‘deeper’ you relax the more you are able to deal with your condition effectively. While you are relaxed the right hand side of the brain which is associated with imagination becomes very active and can be guided to change your perceptions which can then help you meet most challenges. Hypnosis is safe, enjoyable and very effective but mostly mis-understood thanks to stage shows and Hollywood
Does It Really Work?
Like with anything in life there are no guarantees. Hypnotherapy is not a magic bullet or the Holy grail but should be regarded as a vehicle for change, and requires the subject to have two abilities. The first and most important of these is a good imagination. Much of the therapy requires the subject to be able to visualise or perceive pictures in their mind. Everyone has this ability to lesser or greater degree but only 85% of people can truly engage with their inner thoughts. Secondly the subject must be suggestible for the therapy to be most effective.
The good news is that these qualities can be tested very easily before treatment begins. Cumbria Hypnosis exclusively offers the guarantee that if you make an appointment and are not a suitable subject then there is absolutely No Charge. If you are unsure then simply contact David Faratian directly to discuss whether this is the right path for you.
When and Where Can I find Help?
Cumbria Hypnosis offers a range of options to suit your needs. Based in Barrow-in-Furness, qualified and experienced hypnotherapist David Faratian serves Ulverston, Dalton-in-Furness, Kendal, Whitehaven, Workington, Penrith, Windermere, Lancaster and Preston. We offer daytime, evening and periodic weekend clinics to suit your schedule. If you are unsure please contact us directly on 0797 4319510 or via our online support chat at the bottom of this page. If we are unavailable please leave a message and we will get back to you within 24hrs.
Can I Trust Hypnotherapy?
The psychology of Hypnosis has been around for literally centuries, but is only now being recognised by medical practitioners in the National Health Service, where it is being successfully used to control a full range of conditions including cancer. Millions of people are using hypnosis and hypnotherapy to stop smoking, lose weight, and to conquer their fears, such as fear of flying and of course to deal with anxiety and stress which can lead to hypertension. Positive thoughts result in positive re-actions, which bring positive success and achievement. Hypnosis accesses the creative unconscious part of your mind, where there is no challenge or resistance to new ideas and concepts, and where the mind becomes receptive and responsive in such a way that it can absorb these new ideas and concepts quickly and easily without editing. For this reason the treatment can be much more effective, and produces longer lasting results than with many other alternative forms of therapy.
Will I Be In Control At All Times?
Most definitely YES. Hypnosis is often misunderstood thanks to stage shows and Hollywood films. You are always aware. Hypnosis can be broken at any time, you will still be able to hear everything, respond with complete conscious awareness. Imagine how it feels when you are driving, watching TV or reading a book. The feeling of trance is not dissimilar to that experience.
