Welcome to Carrigaline Hypnotherapy and CBT Centre
Susan McElligott, Strategic Intervention, hands-on Transformational Coach, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist and CBT Practitioner who has changed the lives of hundreds of people in the Carrigaline and Cork area
Hello I am Susan McElligott
HYPNOTHERAPIST PSYCHOTHERAPIST CBT PRACTITIONER FOR OVER 20YRS
I have successfully treated cases of depression, anxiety, panic attacks, IBS, relationship problems, weight management, smoking cessation, bereavement, confidence boosting. In fact many problems of the mind, which means I can help you overcome what has been stopping you live the life you want and deserve.Please Call 086-8776935
The treatment, or should I say transformation is generally completed in just one session 60 -120 minutes. (Sometimes more than one visit) I am not one for seeing clients every week to talk about the same old problems. The mind is a powerful tool which needs certain ‘skills’ in order to learn how to control it in ways that support you in dealing with life’s challenges. What I provide is more ’solution focused’ and results can often be seen from the very first session. Personal one to one appointments hopefully available in July, remote appointments available now. Call me.

Lose The Weight You Hate
Discover how you can quickly Lose Weight without Will Power. Hypnoband - The non-surgical gastric band. I am a qualified practitioner in The Hypno-Band™ System which is a long-term solution to your weight problems. This can be employed as a weight loss method instead of traditional hypnotherapy and CBT. Like any medical or therapeutic procedure, there can be no definite guarantees and even a surgeon cannot guarantee that a real actual Gastric Band will work. The virtual gastric band has been proven to be effective in aiding significant weight loss.
Smoking Cessation Program
One or two sessions should do it. Are you overcome by stress, shortness of temper, nagging thoughts or overwhelming cravings which drive you back to smoking? Most importantly do you actually want to give up smoking? Without this mindset you will not give up smoking. This is the most important part of the process. When you have reached a point in your life where you can genuinely say “I want those cigarettes out of my life!” And can sincerely mean those words. Hypnosis can then work effectively to make you a happy non-smoker for good.
Overcoming Your Fears
Overcome the barriers that have stopped you from living the life you want. It's all about your choices. Anxiety can be a very annoying and debilitating condition which can leave you feeling helpless and out of control. Let me help you make that connection to access your will power so you can control your own emotional state and get back in the driving seat of your own life. Each session is tailored to your needs. You will be guided into a state of mental and physical relaxation. Acceptable suggestions will then be given to the subconscious mind to change the old thought patterns to new. A session may last up to 90 minutes depending on the changes we are working on. At the end of the session you will emerge with these new thought patterns.
Children as young as seven years are presented for therapy with, social media, internet gaming and mobile phone addiction. Your child has a voice - they will have the opportunity to be heard and feel understood. They will have fun learning new ways of managing their emotions even after the first session. No matter how big or small the problem is, there is a solution. So whatever your child’s problem or challenge, whether it’s feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety, depression, confidence issues or sleep disturbances like nightmares or night terrors, I’m here to help
Coping With Grief
Designed for those who have lost a loved one and cannot come to terms with the loss. The only cure for grief is to grieve. Anxiety can be a very annoying and debilitating condition which can leave you feeling helpless and put of control. Let me help you make that connection to access your own power so you can get control of your own emotional state and get back in the driving seat of your own life. Each session is tailored to your needs and this is a general guide: You will be guided into a state of mental and physical relaxation. You are not asleep. Acceptable suggestions will then be given to the subconscious mind to change the old thought patterns to new thought patterns which you do want. This may last from up to 90 minutes depending on what we are working on to change.
At the end of the session you will emerge with these new thought patterns in place
Work Life Balance
I believe employee wellness is essential to the success of any business today. I aim to provide a high level of professional standards and strive to make every corporate wellness service a positive experience. Employees will learn the benefits of becoming resilient and refreshed mentally. Optimum performance enhanced when employees become aware of the importance of their mental wellbeing by participating in activities involving self-care.
I am highly experienced in delivering training customised to suit the clients needs. Slide presentations are specially designed to encourage a fun and interactive form of engagement. The primary focus is on empowering employees with the tools they need for healthy mental and emotional wellbeing. The the topics above are covered and can be modified and adapted as needed
You can relax even more as I can offer consultations via Zoom and Telephone in view of COVID 19
for more info.
This is an opportunity to see if we are a match for working together before paying for a session. This helps to avoid, beginning clinical work only to be referred out later or to find that my unique style/ approach is not a match for your needs. The consultations are done by phone or online video and take approximately 15-20 minutes.
Due to relaxation of social isolation measures continue I am able to offer one on one personal consultations. All necessary precautions are taken
Dear Susan, I just wanted to let you know that Tom is doing really well since his two sessions with you.
He is like a new child. I used to have to reassure him every night about his worries brought on by anxiety. Now at bed time he chats about all the things he enjoys and things that he is looking forward to doing.We are delighted with the audios also and even though he said he doesn't need to, I will make sure that he listens to them.I myself feel like a weight has been lifted off me.
We are both so thankful to have met you. Eva and Tom
Hi Susan, thank you so so much. My mind feels free and less cluttered with unnecessary junk.
Ann, Cork Sept, 2017 Hi Susan, just a text to say thank you for the amazing work you did on my son. He says it was like a switch you turned on! You deserve every euro of your fee and the way you gave of your time was so generous. He will contact you after he starts college, hoping he continues the way he is now. Thanks again.
I have been attending sessions with Susan McElligott of Carrigaline Hypnotherapy and CBT Centre since 2013. My sessions have dealt with various issues over the years some of a more demanding nature than others. I can honestly say i always left these sessions feeling much better than before. From the relaxed and private environment to Susan’s calming voice, good humour and practical advice i would have no hesitation in recommending Susan’s services”.
I occasionally suffer from depression and negative thinking and my doctor recommended CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy). I had a few sessions with Susan and her approach was refreshing, uplifting and really positive. She helped me realise my negative thoughts are not the real me and she gave me the tools I needed so that I could continue developing myself. She is very good at what she does and made me feel at ease instantly.I highly recommend her”
