Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy
I use different techniques, approaches and therapies to help each and every client I see. This diversity is beneficial in providing the right therapy for the individual client. With every session we will work together to accomplish a positive result.
Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to create unconscious changes in the client in the form of new responses, thoughts, attitudes, behaviours and feelings. It brings on a deep state of relaxation, during which our unconscious minds are highly responsive to new points of views and ideas.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis (or being hypnotised) is like being in a higher state of consciousness where you will experience a deep sense of relaxation with a heightened awareness. Whenever I am asked to explain what it feels like I would describe it as being similar to a natural trance state, deep meditation or daydreaming.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a therapy that uses Hypnosis to help an individual overcome certain problems and realise a positive change in their life. The Hypnotherapist will use Hypnosis to help the client access their subconscious mind, through this the client will be able to then work with the hypnotherapist to bring about a positive change. To either maximise the clients potential, change their limiting beliefs or help with certain problems.
You can use Hypnotherapy to help treat a number of phobias i.e. panic attacks, and is also effective in reducing stress and relieving pain. There are several methods to go into a hypnotic state and I will help you find the best way that suits you.
Is Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy safe?
Yes absolutely, when used by a fully experienced and trained hypnotherapist. I am a fully experienced and Certified Hypnotherapist through the American Board of Hypnotherapy (ABH).
When you are under hypnosis (or hypnotised) you are not asleep or unconscious just completely relaxed. Your self-awareness will be heightened during hypnosis which will help you to focus and work with the hypnotherapist. You will remain in total control at all times during a hypnotherapy session and will be aware of any suggestions that are made to you. If you feel uncomfortable in your chair at any time during your hypnotherapy session you will be able to move and change your position whenever you feel like.
You are in control over everything you do or say during the therapy session and you will be able to come out of ‘hypnosis’ at any time you feel like, you just need to open your eyes. You will remember everything during your therapy sessions, although if during your hypnosis you remember a disturbing event or thought from your past you can choose to forget that memory again until the time you are ready to deal with it.
In 1955 the British Medical Association (BMA) issued a report approving hypnosis as a useful and valuable therapy tool. Since then Hypnosis has become a recognised form of treatment for a number of psychological issues and problems.
