Hypnotherapy or 'clinical’ hypnosis is the use of hypnosis for therapeutic gains and positive change. It may be helpful to think of this process as one of ‘inner focus’ in which you will enter a deeply relaxed state, often called a hypnotic trance with your Hypnotherapist as facilitator.

You are then able to engage more fully with your own inner process, uncovering those thoughts, feelings and behaviours which may at one time have served a useful purpose, but which are now getting in the way of your full enjoyment of life.

By accessing the subconscious mind, you can release negative emotions, overcome problems and deep rooted habits, unlock your potential and move forward positively into a happy, healthy and successful future.

Your Hypnotherapist can act as a 'guide' to assist you with your personal development and growth, with an emphasis throughout on self-hypnosis to enable you to successfully cope with any future challenges. Hypnotherapy is not ‘done’ to you. Whilst it is a relaxing experience, you remain an active participant in the process. Your commitment, involvement and motivation are essential to ensure success.

What can it help with?

There are a range of behaviours, symptoms and issues that Hypnotherapy can help with, In fact, hypnotherapy can be very effective, even when other approaches have not worked…and there are no unpleasant side-effects. When administered by a professionally trained and skilled hypnotherapist the benefits are long lasting and can be permanent. Please enquire.

What does hypnosis feel like?  

 Hypnosis is a natural state, like daydreaming, that we all access regularly throughout the day, providing us with a chance to develop ourselves and relax. Hypnotherapy is usually a relaxing and enjoyable experience. While everyone is unique and will experience hypnosis differently, this may include sensations of lightness, floating or heaviness, imagery and a loss of awareness of passing time.

During Hypnotherapy your therapist’s gently guiding voice will lead you into a state where your body and mind are deeply relaxed. Although you will enter a state of deep relaxation and receptivity, you will remain conscious throughout. The fact that you may be able to hear outside noises or alternatively, perhaps feel that you have ‘drifted off’ won’t affect the positive work being done by your subconscious. 

Some people fear that they will lose control or be made to do things that they do not want to do. You can be reassured that, in fact, you will always remain in control and if you wanted to be able to come out of hypnosis at any time, you would be perfectly able to do so. Whilst you are in a hypnotic trance you are in a highly suggestible state, but the suggestions made still have to be acceptable to you, or you would simply reject them. Far from losing control, you will find that you become more aware, and are able to make more positive choices about how you respond in any situation. After a Hypnotherapy session people will generally feel relaxed, refreshed and alert.

What will happen if I decide to come for hypnotherapy?       

When you attend your free consultation, your Hypnotherapist will take some details of your background, including medical history, she will also ask about any symptoms you may be experiencing, what problems you are looking for help with and what you hope to achieve to ensure that Hypnotherapy is the most suitable treatment for you. You may also be advised to discuss Hypnotherapy with your GP. If, following the initial consultation, you decide to continue with Hypnotherapy please be reassured that your Hypnotherapist is committed to helping you achieve the results you desire in as short a time as possible.
