Hi! I am Fauz Knight. Welcome to my website!

I am here to help you, so feel free to look around my site for information or just give me a call or drop me an e-mail so I can see how I can help you.

Lets start with what I do…
Cognitive hypnotherapy is a gentle therapy that helps you make the changes you want in your life. Simple techniques are used to alleviate anxiety, fear and stress, change habits like smoking, improve performance in work, sports and exams or help you with chronic health conditions (such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to name but a few).

It's all about the unconscious mind….
Much of what we experience on a day to day basis is driven by the unconscious mind and when we experience unhelpful emotions, or responses to situations, it can feel like no matter how hard we try, we can't break out of them.

Chronic health conditions can also be affected by unconscious decisions and beliefs, and managing everyday life can be a struggle.

But the simplest things can create a shift in our perspective, and when this happens those unconscious responses are beginning to change.

Cognitive hypnotherapy uses techniques that help to communicate with the unconscious part of your mind to bring about the changes you want.

A bespoke therapy

The therapy sessions are tailored to you and develop out of an initial consultation. The sessions will involve a number of techniques best suited for the change you want to make.

I trained in cognitive hypnotherapy with its founder, Trevor Silvester, at the world renowned Quest Institute in London. The techniques we use are taken from:
• Hypnotherapy
• Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and
• Positive psychology

Techniques used include Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or tapping, Regression and Gesalt.

Uniquely, cognitive hypnotherapy combines these techniques with the use of client-tailored 'Wordweaving'™ scripts - a way of speaking to the unconscious mind developed by Trevor himself.
