Addiction Hypnotherapy

Many people may find that at some point in their life they are addicted to something. It can range from alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, food, chocolate and gambling to name just a few. This addiction has become destructive as it has taken over their lives. In a way that negatively impacts the quality of their life. They have become a slave to the addiction, and the rest of their life takes a back seat.
It can affect relationships, work and many other aspects of their life. To the point where it may cause breakdowns in those relationships. People usually start these problems in an innocent fashion, a drink after work to relax and alleviate anxiety. Or gambling for fun and to take mind off some other stuff going on their life. Then over time, it becomes a problem that has gotten out of control that they cannot deal with.

Anger Hypnotherapy

Anger is a high energy state that can cause great distress in our lives. People who experience anger sometimes are not aware they have anger issues because they are focused on their anxiety, depression. But the driving emotion that results in this is the anger. Anger in most people is usually manifested in their mind and body. Where they don't act on it externally by fighting with others or smashing objects. They will tend to yell and scream in their head. often ranting on about them all in the privacy of their mind, this is still anger and with all the toxic effects it has on your body. This anger releases stress chemicals in the body, which over a long period of time can cause many health problems.

Depression Hypnotherapy

If you suffer from depression, you may experience the following symptoms. Always sad, lack of energy, no interest in anything even those you used to enjoy, low self-esteem, and no confidence. Can't concentrate, move slowly, sleeping problems, want to sleep all the time, cannot make decisions, eating problems either too much or not enough and even wanting to be dead.

While depression may be a big problem, you may experience anxiety, anger and other negative emotions which causes the depression. You may not be present to them due to the depression masking them. We all experience sadness at some time or another in our life when things happen that bring us down. Most of us will move through it to get back to normal. While others remain stuck, unable to do anything. Antidepressants may help in the short term. However, they only tend to alleviate or mask the symptoms not remove them, in a way similar to the way pain medication works.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

IBS has many symptoms, such as diarrhoea, constipation or bloating. Doctors think this is due to interference in the communication from the brain to the digestive track. Causing the digestive track to function abnormally, by speeding up or slowing down the processing of food consumed. Most doctors are at a loss as to how to treat IBS. However, they have recognised the following factors influence IBS symptoms. Eating certain types of food, medicines, hormones, trapped gas, and anxiety or stress.

Doctors agree that Hypnotherapy is a very useful tool in helping alleviate the symptoms. Or completely eliminating them in 9 out of 10 patients with IBS.

Stop Swearing (Anger)

I felt that I could not control my tongue and wanted to stop for the children

I am glad I called Synergy Hypnotherapy as he was the closest one to my place when I did a google search. I was brave enough to address this issue. Rodney made it so simple and helped me overcome and understand where it was all coming from by going to the core of the issue. I came away with clarity and feel that he addressed some painful emotions that was the root cause of my problem. Rodney offered me a free session should my speech revert back. Only one session was required. Thank you!

Helen Business Development Manager


I contacted Rodney at my wits end when life wasn’t worth living day to day, My marriage was falling apart in front of my very eyes along with my life , and I had a realisation that I was second guessing everything in my life. Something was not as it should be and it became clear that it was me.

I contacted Rodney to help me overcome these terrible thoughts that were going through my head Rodney delved into my past and found out that my sub conscious was hurting me from my previous marriage some 10 years earlier. I had developed a fear and insecurity that I was not aware of until my world started to unravel. I was so negative and distrustful about my Wife’s every move, action, words,relationships with other male friends it was hell inside my head .

I was struggling every minute I was going crazy, life didn’t seem to be worth living 😥 After seeing Rodney, He was able to erase the Demons inside my head and help me move forward with my life as a new Man & Husband and I can’t thank you enough Rodney. Rodney’s unique gift is truly amazing and I would recommend him to anyone to overcome Life’s ’ challenges that face us day to day .

Thanks Rodney, Trav 😎

Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD)

Is a type of anxiety where the person completes ritualistic type behaviour with compulsive thoughts and concerns. Where people do constant checking of things, like locking doors and windows, checking taps, checking power points, and many other things. They are also concerned with cleanliness, germs, washing, cleaning etc. Usually, they will experience anxiety if they don't complete the ritual, only after they have completed the ritual, can they get some relief. Constant thoughts provoking them into checking things, the voices or thoughts in their mind usually are anxious and relentless, it is only when they have done the ritual do they get some peace. Also, they have compulsive thoughts about health and other things which cause them to be anxious. This will tend to get worse as they get older. This wastes lots of time during the course of their day, to a point where it may completely disable them. The individual may experience the following emotions, anger, anxiety, frustration, helplessness, depression, and guilt. These emotions will tend to make the condition worse.

Phobia Hypnotherapy

Phobia is similar to panic attacks where a person experiences severe physical symptoms which incapacitate them. They can include shaking, sweating palms, sick in stomach, dizziness, numbness, weakness, feeling cold, hot flushes, going red in the face etc. Phobia's usually come in 3 categories Social, Spatial and Specific.

Social Phobia is where the person fears negative judgements from others. Being the focus of attention, looking silly or being embarrassed. Examples include fear of general social situations. Fear of self-expression, crowds or large groups, public speaking, eating in public, leaving the house (Agoraphobia).

Spatial Phobia is a fear of heights, closed spaces, open spaces, or specific places. It can vary in intensity and the factor that triggers it. For example, I have had clients who are ok with a height up to 4 stories. Then above that, they are not.

Specific Phobia includes all other phobias not mentioned above the person can have a fear of trains, dogs, cats, spiders, birds, picket fences, flying, storms, etc.

Postnatal Depression

Big events in our life can cause anxiety and depression at normal times. So it is no surprise that having a baby can trigger off exactly these symptoms. As parents become overwhelmed with the changes in life and responsibility, they now have. Women can experience depression either while pregnant anti-natal depression and also after the birth of their baby postnatal depression.

The symptoms range from crying a lot, sleeping problems, fear of being alone, feeling they are a bad mother, anger, irritability, hating self or baby. No sex drive, depression, can't cope, anxiety and thoughts of harming oneself. Many of the symptoms of postnatal and anti-natal depression are the same as normal depression.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Hypnotherapy

This has become a more widely recognised problem due to soldiers returning from wars and trying to help and treat them of this problem. However, soldiers are not the only people who may experience PTSD, people in everyday normal like can experience PTSD and example of traumas that may trigger off PTSD problems are rape, molestation, car jacking at gunpoint, car accident, hold up, terrorist attack. These are just a few examples there are many that could cause a person to experience PTSD.

The main problem with PTSD is that there is a lot of intense emotion anchored to the memory of the trauma and it can be triggered off by many different triggers like sound, smell, sight of something and what triggers it off may even be unknown to the sufferer.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis

People have usually tried all the different methods, gum, nicotine patches, etc. All for no result, they are still smoking. Or they gave up for a while, then something happened and they started again. This is based on the premise that you're addicted to nicotine. However, studies have shown that nicotine leaves your body in 2 days. Then there are all the people who have given up with no withdrawal, so what is going on here. You're not addicted to the nicotine you have a psychological and emotional addiction.

Many smokers know what their triggers are like driving a car, drinking, socialising, after food, breaks at work, TV, etc. These activities appear to be the cause of smoking. But if we dig a little deeper, we will find that smokers usually feel stressed, anxious, sad, lonely, bored, angry or some other emotions, just before these activities. This is what is really causing them to smoke because when they do smoke, they will go into a meditative trance. Similar to a hypnotic trance where they zone out and gain some relief from the emotions, that is making them feel bad. They move into a more relaxed state. Have a look at anyone smokes outside a building; you will see they are a million miles away. Also, the act of smoking is similar to Indian yoga breathing techniques that are used to help people relax and meditate. You breathe in slowly pause, then breathe out slowly pause, do this several times in a row. This activates a relaxation trigger in people. So by stopping all of these habitual and emotional triggers. We can stop people from smoking and at the same time improve their quality of life.

Sleeping Disorders Hypnotherapy

Lots of people suffer from sleeping related issues like insomnia, snoring, teeth grinding, sleepwalking, sleep talking, and bedwetting.

People who have difficulties sleeping often describe how their mind is racing thinking of this and that. They also experience anxiety, anger, frustration and other emotions that all contribute to making the issue worse. They may find it hard getting to sleep, waking up during the night. Then having trouble getting back to sleep, waking up too early, feeling tired, and that sleep is not refreshing. This often causes a host of associated issues such as concentration issues, irritability, impaired work performance, lack of energy, and tiredness. This may cause anxiety and other issues in other parts of their life like work.

Snoring, teeth grinding, sleepwalking, sleep talking and bed wetting are problems that are controlled at a subconscious level. Because most of this occurs when you are asleep, the conscious mind has no input into these behaviours. So this needs to be addressed at a subconscious level, anxiety and other emotional issues will contribute to these issues. So we will need to address them by getting your unconscious to stop doing this when you are asleep. Also, when you're awake, you need to stop focusing on the problem and relax more.

Sports Performance Hypnotherapy

If you're an athlete, you know that sport is 90% mental. The difference between the top athletes is not skill or fitness but the mental attitude. What do you think of your sport? How do you feel about it? What do you say to yourself about it and to yourself while training and competing? The big one, what do you focus on when you are training and competing? This will determine how well you do. With some clients, I have had they experience a range of emotions like anger, anxiety, tiredness, etc while competing and training. Which detracts from their performance, concentration and wastes valuable energy. I have also had clients who are boxers. Who are worried about whether or not the opponent likes them or not while in a match? This is not what you should be thinking of. They instead should be focusing on winning the match, in a pre-defined way i.e. knock out in the 3 round.

Weight Loss Hypnosis

Often, weight problems are learned in early childhood. This, together with emotional drivers, causes us to have problems controlling our weight. There are different types of problems, for instance, do you binge eat, emotionally eat, eat junk food. Or maybe it is a little more varied a bit of this and a bit of that.

Some of the things we need to work out are you satisfied with a small portion of food or unsatisfied? Can you leave food on your plate? Can you throw that food out? Or do you experience negative emotions when you contemplate this i.e. feel anxious, feel it is a waste, etc. How many times a day to you snack? When and why do you snack? This is usually where people comfort eat. So how do you feel before you snack?

Once we get a good idea of what your problem is losing weight. Then we can begin to work with your subconscious mind to remove any emotional issues around food. And retrain your subconscious to do the things you need to for losing weight.

Weight Loss

Hey Rodney,

WOW!! You have changed my life. I came to you for a few problems. Not being able to study, eat, and sleep and all that have changed.

Im currently doing a double degree in medicine and the way you have changed my life now is remarkable. Bring on exam's I say.

My eating and sleeping were terrible. I never ate breakfast or lunch since I was a teenager and then struggled to lose weight. It wasn't until seeing you Rodney that I worked out I was depriving my body of the love it deserved. My sleep is amazing; I can now sleep 8 hours and feel amazing when I wake up.

I asked you the million-dollar question Can everyone been hypnotised and well the answer is yes. The changes you have made in my life are remarkable and I can't thank you enough.

Thank you.




Severe Insomnia

I had suffered from severe insomnia for years, a problem that I attempted to tackle using pharmaceutical means, limiting caffeine, meditation, chamomile tea and other natural remedies, and just about every other textbook remedy imaginable, to no avail.

Nothing I attempted had any effect on my ability to fall asleep and feel rested the next day.

After a hypnotherapy session with Rodney, the Insomnia is resolved, my only regret is that I didn't see him sooner. His direct, no-nonsense approach allowed me to tackle the root causes of my insomnia, and allowed me to develop a better sense of self, and a strong awareness of the underlying emotions that were preventing me from sleeping.

Since my sessions with Rodney, my sleep has returned to normal, something I haven't experienced in years. In turn, this has allowed me to cope with my busy schedule and responsibilities, while remaining mindful, relaxed, and keeping things in perspective.

I highly recommend Rodney's services for anyone struggling with insomnia or any other similar issues for his professionalism, expertise and tangible results.

Needless to say, I wont be needing the chamomile tea any longer!

Thanks again Rodney

all the best.


Fear of Heights

Hi Rod

I am just checking back in to let you know I recently conquered my fear of heights on our trip to Europe.

It was a huge ask as we ascended Mt Titlis in Switzerland, as it is over 10000ft high.

I can't thank you enough for the help and positivity you gave me. Without that I would have missed a beautiful experience. A big thank you again.

Quiting Alcohol

A direct and effective healing

Alcoholism From a young age I was dictated by an addiction to alcohol. Even when trying to stay sober (for 2 months, 6 months and 9 months at a time) I always found myself falling back into the trap and struggling through the self destructive thoughts and patterns that go with drinking.

I only needed one session with Rodney to completely free myself of this addiction. The session was more raw and direct than I’d expected and this proved to be a highly effective approach as I haven’t felt like a drink since. Even in situations where alcohol consumption is offered and encouraged, not only do I not have the craving, but I also have an automatic rationale and memory bank that pops up reinforcing reasons to stay sober.

This has completely changed my life. Rodney’s hard line approach is enough to shake any problem. There’s real care behind the way he heals and it’s not through pointless hand holding, but rather through perfected techniques that get to the core of the issue. Essentially, giving you a second chance and a fresh slate.

Farewell Fear of Driving

The sense of pure relief and happiness was phenomenal.

The burden and constant pressure of not wanting to drive, coupled with no one being able to really understand my anxiety, was also gone.

I felt liberated and still do. My only wish is I had found hypnotherapy earlier, in 2 hours a 10-year anxiety had just vanished.

Trust Issues

I first contacted Rodney in a frantic state. The week leading up to making that call to Rodney was hectic. My relationship was on the rocks, I was under enormous pressure at work and I had a realisation that my world was crumbling down around me because I was unable to trust anyone. Something was out of balance and it became clear that it was me.

I contacted Rodney to help me overcome the horrible trust issues I harboured. Unbeknownst to me, it turns out I was still carrying a world of hurt from my previous relationship some 6 years earlier. I had developed so many barriers over the years to guard me from being hurt that I trusted no one! If I kept going on the path I was on, it would have been the demise of my new found love and I would have lost the one person I truly cared about.

I was so pent up with negativity and distrust that I proceeded to "grill" Rodney about his qualifications the moment I walked into my first session. Some 50 minutes later I was free from all that negativity and distrust. Now... All is well and I am moving forwards in my life and relationship.
